Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Caroline Myss draws from her years as a medical intuitive to show that healing is not only physical, it is also a mystical phenomenon that transcends reason.Inspired by ordinary people who overcame a wide array of physical and psychological ailments - from rheumatoid arthritis to cancer - Caroline dove into the works of the great mystics to gain a deeper understanding of healing's spiritual underpinnings. Based on these studies, she demonstrates how conventional and holistic medicine often fall short in times of need. Both systems rely upon a logical approach to curing illness when there is nothing reasonable about the emotional, psychological, or spiritual influences behind any ailment.Integral to this mystical healing approach is the engagement of the soul, which we experience through exploring our seven shadow passions, building an empowered inner self around our seven inherent graces, and learning how to work with the mystical laws that govern it.This knowledge holds the key to understanding what it means to defy gravity and break through the boundaries of ordinary thought.You can heal any illness. You can channel grace. And you can learn to live fearlessly.

Our shadows and graces: healing beyond reason

What made the experience of listening to Defy Gravity the most enjoyable?

In this wonderful audiobook, Caroline Myss explains Teresa D'Avila's concept of the human shadows and divine graces. Our shadows will appear and tempt us, no matter what, for the rest of our lives, in every area of our lives. We will need to accept them and own them. And then, she guides us through the divine graces, the powers that can lift us above gravity and transcend the shadows, manifesting our highest reality.
Wonderfully explained, this audiobook will be a companion of many years, maybe the rest of my life. I will listen to it over and over again, to fully understand all the complexity and beauty underneath the Truth it reveals.

What did you like best about this story?

Caroline Myss' insights about how Grace appears in our lives.

What does Caroline Myss bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The way to communicate the contents: how she addresses us, how she gives power to the most important parts, the tone of her voice and the pauses whenever we should ponder and reflect.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

How shadow operates. How to invoke the seven graces through prayer.
