Publisher's Summary

Why are we here? According to Caroline Myss, there is no question more important in our lives than this one. Now you have a "compass" to help you find your sacred purpose on earth, with this revolutionary spiritual tool developed by best selling author Myss.

Designed to complement and enrich her book Sacred Contracts, this audio workshop makes plain the divine origin and plan for our lives - and the deeper significance of our relationships, careers, and even apparently "random" life events. Join Caroline Myss for this heart- and spirit-expanding event as she explores:

  • How before birth, we each "contract" with heavenly guides to become vessels for divine power and evolutionary change.
  • Who belongs in your life, and how to recognize the "energetic" bonds that seal your sacred contracts with them.
  • A unique system for divining your life purpose, using 12 central archetypes and a symbolic Wheel of Life.

    Rich with possibilities for personal discovery and divine connection, the Sacred Contracts workshop will point the way along your own personal life path to its highest - and often surprising - meaning.

    A deeper look at our archetypes.

    A must for those looking to go deeper into understanding our archetypes. Carolyn Myss doesn't hold back and speaks to the soul. Highly recommended ♡

    Comforting

    Sacred Contracts has been one of the most eye opening books! First time in nearly 60 years have I understood the meaning of why different personalities are meant to be in our lives. It is also the first time I have started to remind myself daily that ‘I am a spiritual being having a human experience’.

    Great how and why spiritual read

    I've read bit and pieces of some of the author's teachings in other books, however no other author does such an excellent job of bringing it together. The author is one of the best I have ever heard at giving you a visual representation or example of meanings.

    Read the description given by Audible as this is not a replacement for the book but a compliment and the author will refer you to the book for some of the charts. By all means get both as they are excellent.

    You can benefit and enjoy the audio file here alone, but if you desire to do some of the chart work that is so helpful, buy the written book as well.

    Soul Agreements

    An absolutely amazing concept! After surviving a coma last year & being given the incredible gift of a Near Death Experience, I can tell you that her concepts are completely true. There are NO accidents. There are NO coincidences. EVERYTHING happens for a reason. We are 100% responsible for our lives because we co-created with The Creative Life Force Of The Universe the situations & relationships we agreed to experience during this & every incarnation. We do this for our own, the other beings & the Universes growth. I'm mystified as to how she gleaned this information. One thing she doesn't mention is that it's not just our relationships with other human beings that are crucial, but our relationships with ALL sentient beings. Dr. Myss beautifully expresses the information given to me on the other side.

    Do you know your archetypes?

    This audio book is meant to be read as a supplement to the book Sacred Contracts. It contains a lot of exercises involving archetypal patterns. In it, Myss attempts to help you understand what 12 archetypes you engage with in your life. In the audiobook, however, she really glosses over descriptions of archetypes. She refers you to her hardcopy book instead. If you've listened to The Language of Archetypes then you should have plenty of base to get a lot out of this book. If you've never listened to or read anything by Myss, I wouldn't recommend this one to start.

    The Best

    I have listened to this audio so many times at different points on my journey that I am surprised it hasn't worn out my ipod! Each time I listen I get something I didn't hear before. It has enabled me to make "sense" of what we are all doing here. She is an excellent teacher and her delivery of the nformation is clear as well as entertaining.

    AN ACCEPTABLE CONCEPT TO UNDERSTAND LIFE

    Myss has developed a concept that allows the listener to develop a reason to be here in this life and to understand the events, both good and bad, that occur. The concept is an agreement that we make, prior to our incarnation into life, to learn and experience lessons. Others have agreed to appear in our life to assist us to learn the lessons and have the experiences. In the same way we have agreed to help others have their experiences. How does this help us to live? There are events that occur in our lives that are difficult to accept or to explain. Myss gives a framework that can be used to encompass all of life's events and to accept them within that framework even if we do not like the events themselves. Afterall we do not necessarily come to only experience nice events but also horrid ones. The lesson for the soul is more clinical than the lesson for the emotions and it helps to be able to understand the separation. Well worth the cost and the time to listen and re-listen.

    Amazing insights

    I listened to this audio twice; I intend to listen to it few more times. The beauty in Myss' work is it comes genuine in its ideas, without being foreign or "totally out there". I appreciate the way she talks about the different spiritual traditions, and the stories she relates throughout her book.
    The ideas of freedom of choice and "sacred contracts" resonate strongly with me, especially with the on-going media about "you create your life" and the merciless pointing of fingers at others "i would never do that in my life". We really need to regain compassion when we look at others lives: respecting their journeys and contracts.
    The part on archetypes and casting the personal archetype chart is especially intriguing to me. I will be listening to audio on the subject next.

    logical mysticism; still need the book

    Good to hear as an introduction; but one should really use the unabridged book with it's gallery to archetypes and references to movies and literature to engage this material well. The pointed questions offer guidance in making sense of one's personal past; and allows us the support to see the pieces of puzzles in the light of modern mysticism.

    Sacred Contracts

    If you listened to her lecture once you have heard it all. The same stories are cited in this as in Language of Archetypes as in Energy Anatomy as in Essential Guide for Healers. It is a shame because I really love her work it is just that all of these go over the same thing and in listening to just the little sample I did not get the clue that it was so much of the same material. It is still a live horse but how long is she going to continue beating it into the ground rather than write or deliver some fresh material on the subject. Talk about getting some financial mileage out of an idea. I certainly will not buy another of her lectures until she gets some new material. Save your money, if you have one you have them all.

    This is not a reading of the book.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I expected this to be a reading of the book. Instead it is Caroline Myss talking about the book in her rambling disjointed way.
    Very disappointed. I think that audible should have stated that it was not the accurate reading of the book.

    Has Sacred Contracts turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but it has to Caroline Myss. I will also carefully examine the details before I purchase another audible book.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Carolyn Myss’s performances?

    no

    What character would you cut from Sacred Contracts?

    Caroline Myss

    A must have for all!

    What made the experience of listening to Sacred Contracts the most enjoyable?

    Caroline explains everything in detail.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I really came out knowing more about the reason why things happen the way they do.

    What does Carolyn Myss bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Her way of explaining things and her sense of humor.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely I couldn't stop listening.

    Any additional comments?

    For anyone on a spiritual journey. .... make sure you collect all her teachings.

    Great message but too drawn out

    Great message but I feel it could've been delivered in half the time. There seemed to be a fair amount of repetition.
    I do want to figure out my archetypes now though so have purchased the cards and book...

    Game changer

    This book came by me exactly when I needed it most. It had been in my library and appearing in my minds eye. Whilst struggling with a terribly destructive relationship, menopause, at 53 years old I knew a huge shift was coming. I was on the brink. Thank God Caroline Myss was there to remind me that particular contract was now completed. I can move forward with my new contract. Better, stronger more life affirmative than ever. I claimed my spiritual power back, it was never in doubt. I will listen to this book again and cast my divination cards to see what may be next. My fears are like mist to blow away. Here cones the Sun. Thank you Caroline. I am eager to read more of your work and recommend it to everyone. Janet

    So much to think about

    This audiobook is a fascinating take on life's journey and purpose. All rings true and leaves you with few options but to re-read, relisten and delve deeper. Delivered by Myss' lively voice and style, this will be easy to return to, but it becomes clear that her audio is a recorded workshop, and the book of the same name is an essential companion to this.

    wonderfully inspirational

    I loved this audio book, as much as I love any of Caroline Myss work. I like the fact it is a workshop recording. To me that makes it easy to follow because she is speaking to an audience and I just become a part of that audience when I listen. I also bought the book because of the additional list of archetypes. I would probably have preferred to be given a rundown of the archetypes as part of the audio book. I also found that the book is quite different, making it worth having access to both.

    Good, if a little confusing!

    I didn't start to enjoy this audiobook until almost half way through - I couldn't relate to it and it felt rambling at best to start with. I decided to stick with it and I'm glad I did although I'm not sure I can wade through 90 archetypes to find out more about myself!!

    I also find it particular controversial to hear Ms Myss saying towards the end that everything that happens to us is part of a Contract - which included murder, rape, untimely death etc and that there were agreements for these - intimating that some of it was 'deserved' from a previous incarnation. No, just no!

    Very informative

    I enjoyed it but that said it has very long introduction and diversions from the topic i.e. examples and towards the end the hands on approach to working with your archetypes. I wasn't prepared to write, reflect etc. So not the best for me but I can see the worth for those who are willing to explore the subject for personal growth.
