6-CD Set - Lecture

In What Makes Us Healthy? best-selling author and internationally renowned speaker Caroline Myss delivers a thought-provoking live lecture on the current state of our health, exploring the mystical forces that create disease or wellness. Describing our evolving-and often misguided-relationship with well-being, Myss explains that to truly be healthy, we need a better understanding of ourselves and the factors that influence our lives. She shows us that we must move away from the illusion that the physical world of money, sex, power, and self-esteem has more authority than the inner world of the psyche and soul. That it is, in fact, our ego that blocks our truth and creates imbalances that lead to illness.

Describing the language of transformation as a sophisticated spiritual journey, Myss shows that healing is an act of the soul: our mind governs our healing, but it is the soul that must lead the way. She teaches us that to truly heal, we must look at the energy of our lives and focus inward-toward the soul and away from the mind.

In “What Makes Us Healthy?” Caroline Myss has outlined the stages involved in maneuvering through the parallel universe that we now live in. The old world, where the physical and material focus of money and power reigned supreme, we are now at the entrance of a new world, where our old ways of being no longer works.

Ms. Myss, in her down-to-earth, relatable and yet—non-sugar coated manner, very truthfully sits us down and gives it to us straight. In this new world, there is no room for staying stuck in the past or living our lives as wounded beings. She explicitly explains that we have all been hurt and wounded, and yet it is time to move on now. We can no longer embrace relationships were we focus solely on our wounds, or where the requirement is that someone must give us special treatment because our lives have been hard, or because we had a troubled childhood. That psychic energy can no longer remain as the dominant theme of our lives. To be certain, Ms. Myss does understand our pains, but how long must we remain there? It is time to move on now and what I loved about this 6 CD set is that it guided me inward and allowed me to see what areas of my life I have been repeatedly re-living that no longer serve me.

Also, this new world that we have entered in, where the new currency is the psychic, it’s the mystical powers that govern, the laws that are and have always been—these are now at the forefront and we must tend to these things, while still keeping foot in the realities of the old world, as we quietly move through to the next level of our evolution. In this CD set, Caroline Myss talks about addiction, and not just external addictions, but our addictions to power and special treatment. Our addictions to our wounds and cravings and that getting to the root of those things requires more than focusing on doing this or that, but going inward and discovering what the root cause is and what it was that required us to go there in the first place. Because once we understand the why, we can begin to say goodbye and move forward.

We can no longer wear our self-enlightened, spiritual masks or shirts as something that we only put on when there is a crisis. You should not focus on healing only after an ailment occurs. Healing should not be something that we pursue, to serve us only when we see fit, only to be abandoned when we feel it is no longer needed. In this new world that Caroline Myss speaks of, healing has to be the way we live. Integrity has to be the new language. Honesty has to be the norm. Doing what you need to do, everyday, whether or not you feel like it, but because it is the right thing to do is the way to embrace and encourage true healing at a soul level.

Also, Ms. Myss states rather emphatically, that as we move forward, it is no longer about focusing on how to just heal you or better yourself. As she says, “take someone with you”. Make your focus, how can I heal and how can I help someone else who I may or may not even know, heal as well. “What Makes Us Healthy”, really puts into words what a lot of you may have been unable to. I know it has for me. Just yesterday, as I felt myself pulled in two directions about something, I said to myself “Oh…. parallel universe!” One part of me desperately wants to hold onto the old, while another part of me is ready to move forward. This set has been very
empowering to me.

This book was provided to me for free from Hay House for my review.

What makes us healthy and what is the secret to living a healthy life? Caroline Myss takes on the question and if you think she is going to coddle any self pitying excuses you have for your reasons why your life is not going right, well then, you must not know Caroline Myss.
This is a great CD set and if you have ever wanted to attend a lecture but was never able to then this is the CD set for you.

I have read several of Caroline Myss books and I find her a really 'deep' author. I often have to high light and study sections of her books to grasp the idea she is presenting and reread her books to understand her messages to the fullest. This CD set will be no different and I will continue to listen to this set and no doubt will continually learn something new.
The underlying idea of this CD set is that for us to be truly healthy we must strive to understand ourselves and those forces surrounding us that influence our lives. Once we recognize that our power does not stem from money, sex, power and entitlement but our true power comes from our inner self (soul) then we are on a journey to a healthier life style.

The goal then is to trust the power we truly have by our inner guidance system to recognize the illusion the world has established and the attitudes it promotes for the easy way out. Power is choice in every aspect of our life.

In this 6 CD Set, Caroline Myss takes a frank look at our declining society consumed by entitlement and how each of us are responsible for its continued decline because of our nurturing of our excuses of not taking responsibility of our own characters, power of decisions, and our addictions stemming from our refusal to believe that our Inner guidance (soul) is always stronger than any force that confronts us.

Inner illumination is realizing our relationship with the world of matter and our stamina of our soul. Those on this journey then realize that it is not all about us but is a journey that we all travel together. Dismissing excuses from our lives empower us to know that we now always have options and decisions to make for our own lives. The ego, that we all posses are what blocks us from the truth by way of pride, fear, greed and the need for power. It is the ego that blocks us from truth and causes imbalances and illnesses. This CD is a spiritual journey to lean how to dismantle the walls we have constructed and put our trust back into our inner guidance that leads us back to a balanced life and health. There are so many thought-provoking aspects of this CD that it is impossible for me to capture it all in this review.

Caroline Myss's audio program What Makes Us Healthy? is amazing. About halfway through disc one, I found myself shouting "Holy crap!" several times. This is the heavy duty approach to spirituality. Caroline pulls no punches whatsoever. I was blown away, quite a few times I had to hit the pause button and just sort of let the messages sink in. If you are interested in a holistic approach to healthy living and healing, you need to hear this lecture. I've been drawn to the ideas of the consciousness movement for a few years now, but I've never heard it explained this well, nor have I heard anyone so succinctly describe the history of new age ideas and where we as a people stand right now, and how we'll most likely be remembered by future generations. Caroline Myss is a great teacher. There are some hard lessons she teaches over the course of these 6 cds. Frankly, some of them scare the Hell out of me, but I intend to "cowboy up" and do the work. If you like your inspirational teachings "airy-fairie" and weak in the knees, you may not want to hear all that Caroline has to say on "What Makes Us Healthy?" but I really think you need to give it a listen. She's funny, and entertaining yet tough as nails. Tougher than many a good coach, personal trainer, or drill sergeant.

I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the audiobook from Hay House for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
