Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bestselling author Myss (Sacred Contracts; Anatomy of the Spirit) began preparing for this book with two small acts of kindness involving simple assistance with literal baggage. They inspired her to muse, "What really takes place when you respond to someone in need?... the action itself, the lifting of a heavy piece of luggage... may be small. But the energy that is channeled through that action is the high-voltage current of grace." The multiplied strength of the aid she received prompted her to explore stories of like kind. Soliciting through her e-newsletter and Web site, she received over 1,200 responses in six days from people all over the world who had either given or provided some form of grace or assistance. After a cogent introduction, Myss organizes these stories around the "seven classic stages of spiritual development," expressed in the body's seven chakras or energy centers. She devotes chapters to gifts of the earth; financial and creative support; self-esteem; the heart; choice; wisdom; and the Spirit. Chapters conclude with questions to aid life assessment and prayers. The multicultural references throughout strengthen this universal, timely message that can be enjoyed and utilized by people everywhere.

-- Ken Wilber, author of A Brief History of Everything

"A brilliant, tender testament to the grace that comes from being a conduit for compassion and the divine."

By Janet Boyer HALL OF FAME on September 28, 2004
Format: Hardcover
"Being of service is not an option, it is a biological necessity. Every kind action we do for someone is a reanimation of our own life force--and the other person's...Each time you reach out to another person, whether you decide to do a small favor or because you feel compelled to help, you perform an invisible act of power that has profound healing effects for you both." --Carolin Myss in Invisible Acts Of Power - Personal Choices That Create Miracles

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.

This book was born out of an invitation that Caroline Myss made to visitors to her website. The task was simple: write about your experiences with grace and life changing acts of service. Within six days she had received 1,200 emails in response! She then took these responses and wove many of them into this beautiful, remarkable book that I consider a manual for, as she refers to it, life in "earth school."

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.

Invisible Acts of Power is the gathering of an amazing journey into the lives of many who were affected, at some level, by the kindness of others. The stories are incredible and warm, they inspired my own thoughts of gratitude and how is it that i can participate in giving back. I looked at what motivates me to serve.

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

Review title says it all! If you've read any of her other stuff, this will be totally boring. She has explained most of the chakra stuff in her other books. If I had to read anyone else's chakra-related story, I was gonna scream!!

Can't think of any reason to purchase or read this one!

A student of mine had mentioned that she found Caroline Myss' latest book Invisible Acts of Power very interesting. I had not read it and bought the CD online to listen to the book as I travelled so that I could understand what my student was talking about. I felt at first that perhaps I was being to critical of a woman who had written Anatomy of the spirit a well respected book.I felt very uncomfortable that my intuition was telling me this author is off mark when she has been previously given accolades for her previous works. This same student who had told me about invisible acts of power had recently been having breast problems and we treated her physically and emotionally since she had been doing to much for others and not enough for herself. I was very surprised and rather disheartened as I listened to the author Myss go on and on about how people should take in homeless or allow people to wash their car windows at red lights for money or lambaste grant givers if they ask for proof that the grant money is going to be used for the intended purpose. Miss Myss obviously does not understand co-dependency well, she may be an enabler herself and she can actually cause people dis-ease in their bodies and spirits with her soapbox assumptions that she has all the answers for how to be a worthwhile person deserving of grace. I can see how my student after reading this book continued to do more for others thinking she has to because Caroline Myss tells her she should.. With all due respect for this author's previous work she is only human and there are to many ego driven self appointed energy Guru's out there. The public should not assume that these people are always correct and use their intuition as to whether the advice works for them or not. Dissapointed.
