Book Review on Anatomy Of The Spirit

Author: Caroline Myss, PH.D.

This non-fiction read lays a foundation that every self seeker needs. This is the perfect book for someone who is wanting to better understand themselves and even the people around them. It dedicates a chapter to each of the seven major Chakras or what Myss describes as “seven stages of healing”. Each one abundantly full of information and reflection exercises.

Before the book jumps into etheric descriptions, Myss does a great job of laying the foundation of energy. Starting with the idea that energy is medicine and how to tap into your own intuition. She follows that up with personal power and growth, reporting why personal power is a necessary component of health including health of your body, mind, and spirit. That you are the one solely responsible for you own healing and she hands you the tools to accomplish that task. She equips this book with diagrams and tables to help you better understand the energy currents within our body and how the Chakras feed off them. The Chakras chapters further along in the book are fantastically written but my personal favorite was chapter 2, “Made in the Image of God”. Myss describes how human consciousness and spirit is considered divine in religions around the world. She brings in thoughts and ideas from ancient Greek, Hinduism, Buddhism, Kabbalah thought, Christianity, Chinese Religion and Mayan culture. What is so amazing is how she blends them all together, her knowledge of each religion paves the way for her to seamlessly point out that religions around the world are preaching the same thing. It was such a unique perspective and one that has stuck with me for months after reading. This is a great and necessary read for anyone with any religion.

Following the blending of religions, Myss goes on to dedicate each chapter to a Chakra and its power. Within these chapters she discusses the “healthy” versions and the “unhealthy” versions, along with the characteristics that come from each version of Chakra. Her explanation and dialogue around of each of the Chakras is easily followed and understood. Myss includes stories of clients that are extremely relate-able and help to uncover ways that unhealthy Chakras present in everyday life. At the end of each Chakra chapter are questions and reflective exercises to help determine if you have issues with your own Chakras.

I recommend this read to anyone moving towards healing their mind, body and spirit. BUY YOUR COPY HERE
