Definitely tops all of her other books, at least for me. In fact, this may be the best book I have ever read, as far as the effect it had on me. It takes far greater courage to find God.
To invite God to take over your life is to invoke Divine Chaos into your life. Caeoline you mysx not ready for this type of spiritual upheaval, don’t enter the Castle. I was excited when Definitely tops all of her other books, at least for me.
I was excited when I started reading it, all set to start my mystical life. It wasn’t long before the reading became so painful that I put it down and thought I might never pick it up again. It was too personal, it made me see things in myself that I’d never seen before and wasn’t prepared to examine.
If this is what it takes to be a mystic, I don’t need it. If the book had been written by anyone else, I would have deposited it in the nearest waste receptacle and gone about my merry way.
But I have too much respect for Caroline Myss to turn my back on and walk away from anything she says. Some of her words are harsh, but she calls it a she sees it.
She cariline no choice, given the places she’s gone, the things enterihg have been revealed to her.
Entering the Castle: An Inner Path to God and Your Soul by Caroline Myss
I did the ‘soul work” and got through one mansion after another. By the time I reached the fourth mansion, it was pure joy – the seventh mansion was ecstacy.
I will definitely go back and revisit this book, when I am feeling strong enough. Jan 01, Kimberly Cain rated it it was amazing Shelves: I listened to the audio book, then purchased the print version to keep as a reference. This is very deep stuff.
I’ve said elsewhere that Myss is hard core. She makes no apologies for the fact that she has little regard for whiners! I think this can be very helpful to t I listened to the audio book, then purchased the print version to keep as a reference. Myss puts the responsibility square on the reader’s shoulders, not dismissing that painful things have actually been experienced at the hands of others, but by her teaching that it is up to the individual to let go if they are ever to heal.
Myss draws heavily on her own Catholic background, but is able to use it as a backdrop rather than an antidote. Apr 07, Susan rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Those who are searching for inner connections.
Oct 29, Kyra rated it did not like it Shelves: Caroline Myss, author of such books as Anatomy of Spirit and Why People Don’t Heal, brings us a very different part of the metaphysical world.
For this book, she discusses the work of Theresa of Avila, with whom she alleges she communicated with while she was writing the book. Dubious as it may sound, it is all the rage within the New Age community right now with Esther and Jerry Hicks’ Abraham making communicating with the nonphysical all the more popular though do not be mistaken. Myss does n Caroline Myss, author of such books as Anatomy of Spirit and Why People Don’t Heal, brings us a very different part of the metaphysical world.
Myss does not endorse the Hicks’ work. Yes, once an authority of Chakras and touting a PhD in Energy Medicine which has surprisingly disappeared since the unaccredited nature of her doctorate program was discoverednow Myss has moved on to demonstrating the power of prayer to the masses.
There is enough spiritual work in this book to last you a lifetime, but do not be so eager to hop on board. Myss makes it clear that even if you do all this material, you still may not feel the grace of God. In fact, you may not even receive that healing you so desire. She explains that the world of healing is irrational and asks you to leave behind critical thinking and to exchange it with irrational thought.
And even if you surrender completely to this irrational thought, God may very well not bestow his grace upon you. So what’s the perk of following this? But, if you are in the mood to be talked down to by someone who believes they are higher than thou and preached to about all the things you are doing wrong in your life, this is a must.
Though, I must be honest, I am more than skeptical of Myss’ abilities. I have never heard back from any of her people about this. Watch her on youtube and it is clear that there is nothing enlightened about her.
She exhibits every flaw that she would so readily hop on you about, so be wary of her words and do not be so willing to throw yourself down this rabbit hole. View all 3 comments. Sep 15, Stacey Couch rated it it was amazing.
This book absolutely changed my life and continues to every day. I reference it every morning and continue to memorize prayers inside to help me embrace the power casgle prayer in this new, revolutionary way that Caroline Myss presents. Over the course of the 6 months I spent traveling through the rooms in this book I experienced a spiritual transformation unlike any other in my life. I can’t imagine there are many people out there that would be able to endure through the entire process this book pr This book absolutely changed my life and continues to every day.
I can’t imagine there are many people out there that would be able to endure through the entire process this book presents, but the rewards, the enlightenment is so, so very worth it. I never thought a book could be this pivotal in causing mys change.
Jul 18, Mark rated it it was ok. It takes pages before you enter the first mansion.
Some of the material in the beginning is important, but I’m sorry, I just could not connect with the author’s own personal experiences. Some of them just sounded to “new age” xaroline me. Superficial is the word that comes to mind although I do not want to to discredit the author’s experiences.
The author uses the term “monks without monasteri It takes pages before you enter the first mansion. The author uses the term “monks without monasteries”. It is a catchy phrase, but it confuses the purposes of different vocations. Both vocations call for personal sacrifices a word not much used in this bookbut they are directed toward different goals. The author belittles, or does not recognize the secondary function of monasteries as a conveyor belt to drive and supplement, to support and re-energize the spirituality of those working in the world.
The primary function of monasteries is beyond the book and this book review. John of the Cross and even St. Although they can and enterinf reinforce faith, they castlw distractions and obstacles for “the one thing necessary”–to love God for God, not for God’s consolations and gifts. The author waits too late to address humility in the book, and then it was a bit shallow.
Entering the Castle: An Inner Path to God and Your Soul
The author treats it almost as a drawback or turnoff to reading any further in the book. In too many places I wrote in the margin, “What about grace? It is a craoline and not something that can be self-manufactured. You have to show up and choose to cooperate.

Yes, you have to do your homework, but only grace energy, power, or whatever term one uses from God will empower you to do so, not your own volition. Without sincere, deep, and total humility, St. Teresa said that it is impossible to progress through the mansions regardless of how much one wants.
Teresa’s original, albeit Christian, metaphors and symbols. The author decides to use the word “reptiles” instead of St. Teresa’s word “snakes” for evils and worldly temptations. The word “love”, although loaded with connotations, seems to be used very sparingly by the author.
Teresa’s word for God, the object of her total desire and commitment, was her “Beloved”.
