Excellent Teachings On How To Heal And Regain Energy

"Several years ago, medical intuitive and author Caroline Myss gave two dynamic presentations on PBS: Why People Don't Heal And How They Can and Three Levels Of Power And How To Use Them. The DVD version of these specials was released last week and I had the opportunity to watch them both in their entirety. I enjoyed them so much, I took 17 pages of notes! Both presentations are on 1 disc, with a run time of 140 minutes.
In Why People Don't Heal And How They Can, Myss explains how our biography becomes our biology. Our bodies contain energy data banks, known as chakras, that manage the flow of our life force. Every thought, belief, memory, and inspiration is recorded in our bodies. As a medical intuitive, Myss is able to "see" inside an individual's body and discern illness and its cause. Over the years, she discovered that many illnesses are connected to thoughts, emotions, and memories that have "hooked" our energy, keeping our precious life force in the past. We get a certain amount of life force, or personal power, for every day that we live. If we spend 80% of our energy in our history--hooked by emotional wounds, bad relationships, negative attitudes, judgmentalism, and unforgiveness--then we go into energetic "debt". Not having enough energy for the present moment (because of being stuck in the past), our body has to take a "loan" from someplace. Woundology, a term Myss has coined, is being stuck in the wounds of the past, defining yourself by your wounds, and using wounds as form of "street currency" to manipulate others. Woundology and energetic debt takes energy out of your cell tissues, and this can lead to illness.
In addition to explaining each of the 7 energetic data banks of our bodies, Myss covers:
*Consequences of negative energy
*Finding the strength to heal
*Getting your spirit back
*The importance of forgiveness
*Fear of change
*5 central myths that prevent healing
*Steps to heal
*Saving your spirit
In Three Levels Of Power And How To Use Them, Myss continues to lift the curtain on the human body's energy network, and the vast data banks which stores our thoughts and feelings. She explains that the power centers (chakras) can be divided into 3 levels: the tribal, the individual, and the symbolic. She also discusses the 8th chakra, a place of symbolic, or archetypal, sight. Myss says that power (our life force/prana/chi) is the common ingredient within the human experience. Moreso, it is the common ingredient in health, and certainly in the loss of health.
Myss elaborates on the power of the tribal mind, which is group thought. It's where we all start, and encompasses family, ethnicity, religion, political ideas, and trends. If your energy is plugged into group thought, you will function, create and heal at the speed of the group. For example, let's say you were diagnosed with an illness that your family believes is incurable. You look into alternative health, and hear stories of people who were healed from this disease. You tell your family this, and they say "No one gets healed from this. Your grandfather, uncle, and cousin all died from this disease." If you're plugged into group thinking, you will align yourself to what they believe...and live accordingly. Groups usually move very, very slowly...mostly because of being resistant to change. Have you ever heard "We've always done it this way" or "We've never did it this way"? This is tribal language. It's giving your energy circuits over to the group for them to control you. Myss calls this level "eau d' toilette", because you need a lot to get anything done.
The next level of power is individual power. You have to have an incredible sense of internal power to overcome the structure of external power. This is the realm of power where you unhook from the tribal mind, and where you have to take responsibility for everything you believe--good, bad or indifferent. No "well, my family does it this way..." in the realm of individual power! You can heal much faster than the tribe in this realm, because energy moves faster. She explains that forgiveness is what helps us detach from the tribe, maneuvers us into individual power, and gets us into present time. Myss likens this level to cologne: it's stronger than eau d' toilette, and will work for longer.
The third level of power is the symbolic realm. This is the higher altitude where we become the observer of our life without being threatened. It is the symbolic and archetypal realm where we see our life through the eyes of sacred contracts and archetypal "dancing". This is a realm of power that can go the distance, which Myss likens to perfume.
Myss also discusses how we can manage our own power, especially through choice. We can choose not to put our energy into getting mad about losing a parking space, as well as not leaking energy into a past relationship that we should have let go of long ago. She explains how to build up our "grace account", live in the present, and invest our energy in staying above situations that would drain our precious life force.
Truly, the power we have in our spirit is the power of creation itself--and we can also extend this power to others, as well as using it to heal ourselves.

Letting go of old wounds and embracing healing...

"Caroline Myss' teachings appear in my life when I need them the most. She sheds an amazing light on why we can't heal, why we hide behind our wounds and why our wounds can actually give us social power. While the social power may feel comforting, this can prevent your healing.
Caroline introduces chakras as data banks. Through her teachings, I finally understood Chakras and how they relate to the physical body.
She also explores pain as a guardian and a guiding force and explains why serious negative patterns can be (but are not always) a hindrance to healing. She tells some amazing stories about how people are connected on an energy level and "suddenly" I realized why some people give me incredible creative energy to write and why some people zap my energy with one sentence. Caroline has now taught me how to deal with painful emotional experiences, how to prevent the chaos of lost energy, how to protect my cells from energy loss and how to create a healing environment in which my cells can function at an optimal level. She discusses how a loss of energy actually causes cell repair to be hampered. This will make you look at stressful situations in an entirely new light.
She speaks to an audience in a mythical setting by a pond/river. She explores how thoughts affect our physical body and she delves into three levels of power:
Tribal - group mind, family, heritage...
Individual - Taking responsibility for our life and making our own choices
Symbolic/Archetypal/Spiritual - Observing our life without feeling threatened
Are you ready to forgive? This might be the first step in your healing process. Caroline shows you why healing is a journey and how you can chart a course for your future. By managing your energy system, you can learn to live a richly guided life and move towards a level of genuine empowerment.
Caroline Myss is a medical intuitive who has a unique way of looking at healing. I can also recommend: "Why People Don't Heal and How They Can."
Caroline Myss' teachings can have a profound effect on your life. Get ready to be healed and find out about your shadow self. She will also take you to places your mind has never traveled. When you start to look at the world through her eyes, it can be very enlightening. I know people who have been changed by Caroline Myss' work and they introduced me to her message of hope and healing.

Hard to follow but very good information

"Dr.Myss' speaking style can be hard to follow. There's not a lot of flow to the material (I'm the same way sometimes). But, the information she's presenting is so important it makes up for what's lacking in style."
