Overview

We all face times when we need to be healed-some traumatic experience or grave disappointment overwhelms us, burying the pain deep inside, where it is hidden for days, months, even years.

In Defy Gravity, best-selling author Caroline Myss challenges the conventional approach to healing, which maintains that we can always find reasons for why things happen as they do. We can't. And now it's time to explore a model for healing that leads us into deeper and more effective truths. Drawing from her years as a medical intuitive and teacher, Myss shares real-life stories of people who were considered "terminal cases" and, through nothing short of a miracle, survived their illnesses.

Inspired by these ordinary people who overcame a wide array of physical and psychological ailments-from cancer to advanced diabetes-Myss utilizes the wisdom of the great mystics, whose writings provide a deeper understanding of the spiritual underpinnings of healing. Based on these studies, Myss introduces a new model of healing that draws on an understanding of the relationship between our seven shadow passions and our seven inner graces, to find harmony and peace with the mystical laws that govern our lives.

Editorial Reviews

Even many orthodox physicians assert that healing is not only physical; a significant psychological component is involved. Medical intuitive Caroline Myss goes far beyond those admissions. She asserts that conventional and holistic medical treatments are sometimes doomed to failure because they don't address the possibility of mystical healing. In Defy Gravity, she invites readers to engage their souls by exploring their seven shadow passions and building an empowered inner self around our seven inherent graces.

Another outstanding work by Caroline Myss! If you are a "mystic out of a monastery" with the desire to serve God in both visible and invisible ways, then this is the book for you, added to the shelf with her other great works: Sacred Contracts, Invisible Acts of Power, and Entering the Castle. A must read for any spiritual sojourner intent on transforming our Earth with grace and divine power. Caroline, with her practical, "no nonsense" approach to spiritual service, takes typically esoteric stuff and grounds it for the ordinary person to apply to their day-to-day life.

The book was immensely readable, but there was nothing really new. In fact, compared to previous books, the questions were not as good. While touting the need to become more interiorly connected and less reasoned in our approach to health, the questions were very much reason based and evoked the mind more then the spirit. The chapter on spirit was the best in the book, but it, too, was not as good as some of her other books.

I've love love her very early works, before she became this world famous spiritual teacher. You can sense from her voice, a humble, gentle person who had inspired millions of people including myself! Especially her "Spiritual power & spiritual practice". But ever since last year presidential election, Caroline has changed to this sharp tongue, partisan, opinionated political person who writes articles on HuffingtonPost.com and their news paper, criticizing all Republicans parties, candidates or anyone who is not supporting the democrats party because their political views is not the same as hers. I feel that she is not living what she preach! You are an spiritual teacher! You should rise above all these political madness and use your power and inspirational words to bring people together! Especially during this trouble time, instead of clam people's anger & differences on the health care bills that just past, she writes many articles to add the oil into fire to make people more partisan and angry! Caroline, I am so disappointed by the direction you took. I think you were a wonderful spiritual teacher when you just started many years ago, maybe your success and ego has finally got to you! Please bring back the old Caroline Myss we love! Not this political driven, sharp tongue partisan columnist! If you are republican, or not agree with the health care bills that just passed or the direction of our country is heading, go to HuffingtonPost.com and type in the search section of Caroline Myss you'll see what I am talking about!
