BOOK NERD WEEKLY : Kickass Quotes From Sacred Contracts - Awakening Your Divine Potential by Caroline Myss

 
This is not a book that you read once and are done with. It's one that you work with and read multiple times. At least that's been my experience of it.

Caroline Myss (pronounced "mace") is the person who first helped me to understand archetypes in a way that had personal value for me- in a way that oriented me to my own psycho-spiritual coordinates and allowed me to proceed from there in having a hand in the creation of my own destiny.

She was also the spiritual teacher to one of my all time favorite spiritual teachers, Robert Ohotto, who has taken the idea of a Sacred Contract, expanded upon it & made it his own (Soul Contract). Their work combined is powerful stuff.

And this book, Sacred Contracts : Awakening Your Divine Potential, makes for an excellent starting point. I will warn you by saying that this is not a light read and understanding it requires your active participation, but- if you're willing to go there- it could be a complete game changer.



"By coming to know your mission, you can live your life in a way that makes best use of your energy." -Caroline Myss

"Your identity, self-esteem, and awareness of your ego lay the groundwork for your life. How you conduct yourself with others, and whether you have the strength to make your way without needing to ask for another's permission, depends on how well you succeed at the many challenges that awaken your need to take charge of who you are." -Caroline Myss

"When you approach intuitive methods with respect, you become open to hearing from your interior channels." -Caroline Myss


"Each archetype represents a fundamental learning experience or process that is meant to guide us throughout our lives." -Caroline Myss

"A major directive that helps you determine your archetypes is 'Describe in detail my unfinished business with someone'." -Caroline Myss

"You cannot come to know the depths of the purpose of your life... if you are not willing to release those parts of your life that are no longer necessary." -Caroline Myss

"Every time we enter a new sphere of power, which can include obtaining more money, earning more university degrees, or... attaining a higher level of spiritual insight, we are given a 'test' to see how we will manage the influx of yet another level of earthly power in our lives." -Caroline Myss

"Although events often seem to occur haphazardly, your Contract unfolds gradually, each aspect arriving as you are ready for it, giving you many opportunities to respond to the challenges it presents." -Caroline Myss


"Our physical well being is clearly influenced by our psyche." -Caroline Myss

"As you explore the connections between specific ailments and their energy basis, you can use your knowledge of the archetypes and the Archetypal Wheel to devise healing strategies." -Caroline Myss

"The Archetypal Wheel is an intuitive method that makes symbolic information accessible to you. Your archetypes become even more significant when you see them at work in the houses that signify twelve different aspects of your life. The Wheel helps you decode the behind-the-scenes patterns of your life." -Caroline Myss

"Energy medicine is a timeless method of healing. It's effectiveness in massage, aromatherapy, or acupuncture comes from activating or freeing blocked energy that has accrued over time." -Caroline Myss


"The hallmark of a divine experience, regardless of what form it takes, is that it gets your attention and leads you to think something out of the ordinary might be happening to you." -Caroline Myss

"What you may think of as your ordinary attributes are not a fair indication of what spiritually extraordinary attributes lie within you. The obvious is never the whole truth." -Caroline Myss

"All growth occurs in stages, and spiritual development is no exception." -Caroline Myss
