Book Review: Anatomy of the Spirit

Synopsis on

Building on wisdom from Hindu, Christian, and Kaballah traditions, this comprehensive guide to energy healing reveals the hidden stresses, beliefs, and attitudes that cause illness.

Anatomy of the Spirit is the boldest presentation of energy medicine to date, written by one of its premier practitioners, internationally acclaimed medical intuitive Caroline Myss, who is amongst the “hottest new voices in the alternative health/spirituality scene” (Publishers Weekly). Based on fifteen years of research into energy medicine, Dr. Myss’s work shows how every illness corresponds to a pattern of emotional and psychological stresses, beliefs, and attitudes that have influenced corresponding areas of the human body.

Anatomy of the Spirit also presents Dr. Myss’s breakthrough model of the body’s seven centers of spiritual and physical power, in which she synthesizes the ancient wisdom of three spiritual traditions-the Hindu chakras, the Christian sacraments, and the Kabbalah’s Tree of Life-to demonstrate the seven stages through which everyone must pass in the search for higher consciousness and spiritual maturity. With this model, Dr. Myss shows how you can develop your own latent powers of intuition as you simultaneously cultivate your personal power and spiritual growth.

By teaching you to see your body and spirit in a new way, Anatomy of the Spirit provides you with the tools for spiritual maturity and physical wholeness that will change your life.

What I Thought:

I listened to this book on Audible as we drove to the cottage for the September long weekend. It was a 2 hour and 23 min listen so it was perfect for our 5-hour drive!

I really loved that this booked combined Christian teachings which I’m familiar with from my upbringing with Jewish traditions and linked it to the Chakra system which I’ve become fascinated with in my 30s.

I got a lot out of the chapter on the Third Chakra: Personal Power it really made me think about how I view myself and if I truly like myself. The fourth chapter on the Fourth Chakra: Emotional Power made me view forgiving in a brand new light. The principle around how our health is linked to our personal power was fascinating to me. I really like Caroline Myss’s teaching style and I’m excited to dive into more of her teachings.
