Caroline Myss, pioneer of energy medicine, has written a brand new book that may forever change how you see yourself in the world.
Invisible Acts of Power - Personal Choices That Create Miracles demonstrates how conscious acts of kindness, generosity, and service create meaning, hope, and even health for both the giver and the receiver. Myss contends that all thoughts and interactions are an exchange of power, and maps how this energy manifests itself through each of the 7 chakras. Within the 7 stages of generosity, Myss makes the case that the ability to be generous and the ability to be intuitive are inextricably linked. She breaks new ground in exploring why many people are afraid to be generous--and the ramifcations of "holding back" or ignoring intuitive guidance.
Using both personal stories and those culled from over 1,200 letters that were sent to her website, Myss shares electrifying and heart-warming examples of how kindness towards others actually increases our own power and health--and teaches how we can move from visible to invisible acts of power.Read more ›
The most amazing part of the book for me was how Ms. Myss was able to take the many and varied responses and associate each one with one of the seven chakras. For example, chakra one is our connection to our roots, the physical world, and family. Acts of service associated with this chakra would include giving someone shelter for the night, or cooking a meal for a friend. Chakra four represents love--both of ourselves and of others. Acts of service that are born from this chakra would include forgiveness, as well as acts of unselfish kindness (which could be as simple as holding the door open for someone or smiling at a stranger).
Each chakra has its own chapter, and each chapter is filled with numerous wonderful stories that illustrate the essence of that chakra. Woven in with the stories are beautiful descriptions of spiritual concepts such as grace, intuition, and service.
I have been a student of spirituality and mysticism for more than 25 years and I have read countless books over that time. This is one of the most life changing I have ever read. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
Thank you, Caroline Myss, for sharing your wisdom with us. Your writing of this book was a tremendous act of service.
The fact that Caroline connects each type of giving with an energy center or chakra brings sacredness to these acts of power, the reader will begin to experience what it is to remain in the background and to give with out an agenda or thoughts of recognition. Finally the beautiful essays, prayers and thoughts woven between each story serve to teach-inspire and up lift. If ever there was a book to soften and help us move through those things that are so challenging in this world--it is Invisible Acts of Power, truly a must read for everyone--------Julie Flaherty
Why do some people practice generosity as a "spiritual practice?"
What is the most appreciated type of generosity?
How can you break through fears to awaken your own generosity?
What do people regret the most?
Why do we fear giving to those less fortunate than ourselves?
How can you build someone's self-esteem by giving invisible gifts from the heart?
Why is listening an act of generosity?
Caroline Myss has profound insight into life's many complexities and in Invisible Acts of Power she explores the positive results of emotional, creative, supportive and risk generosity. She now builds additional layers on our understanding of the charkas, although you can enjoy this CD set without knowing detailed information about energetic fields (the interactive charka model at her myss site is very helpful).
What is most interesting about the ideas is how they were inspired by real-life situations and letters sent in by people connected to her website through her newsletter. This opens up a world of experience in which giving takes on practical dimensions.Read more ›
