Overview

      New York Times best-selling author Caroline Myss draws from her years as a medical intuitive to show that healing is not only physical; it is also a mystical phenomenon that transcends reason.

      Inspired by ordinary people who overcame a wide array of physical and psychological ailments—from rheumatoid arthritis to cancer—Caroline dove into the works of the great mystics to gain a deeper understanding of healing’s spiritual underpinnings. Based on these studies, she demonstrates how conventional and holistic medicine often fall short in times of need. Both systems rely upon a logical approach to curing illness when there is nothing reasonable about the emotional, psychological, or spiritual influences behind any ailment.

      Integral to this mystical healing approach is the engagement of the soul, which we experience through exploring our seven shadow passions, building an empowered inner self around our seven inherent graces, and learning how to work with the mystical laws that govern it. This knowledge holds the key to understanding what it means to defy gravity and break through the boundaries of ordinary thought.  You can heal any illness. You can channel grace. And you can learn to live fearlessly.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
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.

    Myss Delivers Again!

    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.

    Nothing really new here

    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.

    TO MOONCRYSTAL

    "My name is Cora, and l am a loner that has comitted myself to helping cats." A pretty black she-cat with intelligent green eyes steps out of the shadows.

I suggest that until the threat of Tornado is over, go into hiding. You can stay at my cat hotel at sea song second result. I will find you a room." She walks away.
