Myss is angry on this one. She really doesn't like New Age thought, apparently. She says everything is hard and takes work and life is struggle, struggle, struggle. She goes on a long and winding evolution of American thought development on "the power to create". Then, she goes on a tirade about how none of us, except her because she's disciplined, have the power to create. We're all sabotaging ourselves because we "don't want to work that hard". We only want to create "that which doesn't cost u ...more

I started this book on CD and stopped because she seemed scattered and bashing other authors/books. Don't honestly know if I will finish this one. not a very good one. She sure loves herself a lot, giving herself a lot of praise throughout this book. I finally finished this.

I am inspired by Myss' no nonsense presentation of how we can harness our own reality. Highly recommend.

The Judge Judy of the New Age/Spirituality World. But we all need a kick in the ass every once in the while.
I think I made a mistake in starting out with one of Myss's audiobooks, because I find her presentation to be super obnoxious, and I'm having trouble separating her message, which I sometimes agree with, from her.

I don't think it helped that she practically spat out the word "pagan" early on, like it's a dirty word, and reduced pagan beliefs to putting "trinkets under your pillow," in hopes that you win the favor of the gods. Ouch. I can definitely agree that there is a lot of spirituality, pag

My takeaway: listen to your "soul strivings" to create your life. Your soul, when you are tuned into it, will take you where you need to go. Be aware that life is about serving others, all creation is of God. It's not about what you want, but who you are and what you have to bring forth into the world. Be aware of those who would sabbotage you, from within and without. The inner "sabboteur," the temptations that have you forever stalling on making meaningful changes in life, is a useful concept. ...more

Very interesting material, not at all what I was expecting...
Ms Myss comes on very strongly and I am interested in reading this again to pick up on points I sort of glossed over at the beginning.
I'll have to think this over and reread it before I make up my mind
as to whether or not I am buying the premise she presents.

I did not particularly enjoy this CD and I did not get any value. There really wasn't any structure. Many times Myss would go off on a tangent. So I lost interest and did not even bother to finish listening to the entire audio.

This was a little short on information and Myss's delivery seemed a bit more aggressive than usual. Not bad, but definitely not one of my favorite Myss lectures.

This audio presentation is organized, but less formal that what I usually think of as a "book".

Myss has a way with words and language that remind you not to take yourself too seriously.

I love Myss' tone and hearing someone talk beyond spiritual nonsense. I don't believe a spiritual perspective is helpful for everyone, yet I find her very refreshing and wonderful.
