Entering the Castle: Finding the Inner Path to God and Your Soul’s Purpose By Caroline Myss

Internationally renowned motivational teacher and popular theologian Caroline Myss has created a transcendent work of unique insight and revelation in Entering the Castle. A highly original inner path to self-knowledge, the Castle is also the r oad to spiritual knowledge of God and your own soul. In fact the soul is your spiritual castle and doing interior soul work helps you find your path in the world.

Teresa of Ávila’s vision of the soul as a beautiful crystal castle with many mansions, and many rooms within those mansions, is the template for this modern spiritual journey on which you meet different aspects of your self and spirit and prepare for the ultimate encounter with God and your own divinity. Seven stages of intense practices and methods of spiritual inquiry develop your personal powers of prayer, contemplation, and intuition, which in turn reinforce your interior castle and build a soul of strength and stamina.With stories and inspiration from mystics of all traditions, Entering the Castle is a comprehensive guide for the journey of your life — a journey into the center of your soul. There, peace, God, and a fearless joy wait for you to discover them…and claim them for your own.

Caroline Myss is the author of the New York Times bestselling books Invisible Acts of Power, Sacred Contracts, Why People Don’t Heal and How They Can, and Anatomy of the Spirit, and is a pioneer and international lecturer in human consciousness. In 2003, she founded the CMED Institute, an educational program that specializes in intensive classes on archetypes, personal power, and mysticism. Her audiotapes include Entering the Castle (Hay House) and Why People Don’t Heal and How They Can; Spiritual Madness; and Spiritual Power, Spiritual Practice (Sounds True). Her work is featured on her popular website http://www.myss.com. She lives in Oak Park, Illinois.

About this video, and I know this is hard to understand, but after watching the videos you will understand.

To work with yourself, you need to recognize the reptiles in your life, you need to recognizing your own soul´s voice. You have to find your soul´s qualities, that means you need to find the deeper path , you need self-examination and contemplation. You have to unveil God in you through the four veils of God.

You have to cross the drawbridge, make spiritual detachment. You have to fight your own reptiles, that are living in you. And they live especially outside this drawbridge, keeping you from God. You have to make a transitioning between worlds. You need to chose to wanna cross the drawbridge, to start the work with your self ( soul )

The power of prayer and humility, is what gets you through this.
The chaos must be stopped, and Divine seduction is needed, to continue.
You will go through many rooms in this castle you are entering, this castle is your soul.
you have to recognize the pull of the two worlds: divine guidance and Divine chaos. You have to explore the chaos in your soul
In this work you will find inner vision and soul companions, through the practice of illumination of inner vision and purification of soul companions.
through this exploring the chaos in your soul, you will find divine seduction.
The need of practice of illumination, you will find rooms of inner vision and a commitment to the divine.

You have to see the difference of the defeat of reason / the presence of God.
You need to defeat reason, and find the archetypal desert in the soul.
the contemplation in the desert, will open up the mystical heart, and you will go into the heart of the sacred, where you need to receive God, you need to prepare to receive God´s love.
This is the power of your cosmic soul.
The prayer of recollection, is also called the soul fight.
We need to dissolve into holiness, from silk worm to butterfly. In this living in a higher state, we are dissolving into our soul.
this is the characteristics of a mystical experience.
we are having a mystical marriage to ourself.
We are getting essential wisdom and the final fire will burn inside us.
Be mindfull of evil, doubts and fears qualify as the workings of evil. The force of evil finds weakness in your psyche and takes advantage of it at every possible opportunity.
We get into rooms with divine communications, the experience of holy rapture. This is a authentic contemplation.
We need this divine marriage, healing and reentering the world and the mystical trinity will be revealed. The tranquil soul.
Here are all 7 videos, put in one video on youtube below.

Love, light and understanding to all.

Carolyn Myss with Alan Steinfeld on her book “Entering the Castle”


Published on Mar 22, 2018

From the New Realities archives, Alan Steinfeld interviews Carolyn Myss about her visions and her medical intuitive abilities.

Entering the Castle is based on St. Teresa’s seven interior mansions, which are explained and elaborated here…so beautifully, clearly, compassionately, lightheartedly, wondrously…[as] seven steps…to your own deepest self or soul. Teresa became not only a spiritual woman who had written a brilliant practice manual, but a saint who saved Caroline’s life, showed her her soul, awakened her heart, and set her on the never-ending…timelessly fulfilled road of practice. I just know that Teresa would say ‘amen’ to this luminous book as the fruit of her calling to you, a calling to all of us to be mystics without monasteries in a world sorely in need of a touch of the divine…the true self in each and every one of us.” — From the foreword by Ken Wilber, author of A Brief History of Everything and Integral Spirituality

The Book of Mastery: The Mastery Trilogy: Book I by Paul Selig (Author)

The first book in channeler Paul Selig’s widely anticipated Mastery Trilogy leads you into an unprecedented journey of self-development, at once building your personal excellence and your ability to improve life for others.

The channeled literature of Paul Selig — who receives clairaudient dictation from unseen intellects called the Guides — has quickly become the most important and celebrated expression of channeling since A Course In Miracles rose to prominence in the 1970s.

Selig’s three previous books — I Am the Word, The Book of Love and Creation, and The Book of Knowing and Worth — have won a growing following around the world for their depth, intimacy, and psychological insight. Now, Selig embarks upon an extraordinary new trilogy on the “Teachings of Mastery” with his inaugural volume: The Book of Mastery.

The Book of Mastery provides a deeply practical prescription for heightening your abilities, aptitudes, and sense of personal excellence. The Guides’ teachings go much further, however, instructing you how to improve life for others and, ultimately, for global humanity.

As the Guides themselves put it: “We will tell you this: No one who reads these books will be left unchanged. They will be like molecular systems that reinvigorate and realign and reclaim the reader to themselves in their worth, in their identity and, beyond that, in their physical realm. Underline physical realm if you like. Because the physical realm that we teach in is about to go back to the stone ages unless you all get it together.”

Born in New York City, Paul Selig attended New York University and received his master’s degree from Yale. A spiritual experience in 1987 left him clairvoyant. Selig is considered one of the foremost contributors to the field of channeled literature working today.

Paul offers channeled workshops internationally. He serves on the faculty of The Omega Institute, The Kripalu Center and the Esalen Institue. Also a noted playwright and educator, he served on the faculty of NYU for over 25 years. He directed the MFA in Creative Writing Program at Goddard College for many years he now serves on the college’s Board of Trustees. He lives in New York City where he maintains a private practice as an intuitive and conducts frequent livestream seminars. Information on public workshops, livestreams and private readings can be found at http://www.paulselig.com.

The Book of Mastery (Paul Selig)

How can you be the master of your own life? What is involved in letting go of ego? What are the ways our small self (ego) limits our ability to see heaven on earth? The Book of Mastery asks us to claim our Divine Selves. How can claiming who we truly are improve our lives and shift the consciousness on the planet?http://www.fireitupwithcj.com/why-we-…

Richard Schoeller – Buddha at the Gas Pump Interview

One night in 1997 Richard Schoeller thought he was dying because he found himself surrounded by both sets of deceased grandparents. They reassured him that it wasn’t his time to join them in the afterlife and that their visit was to help him understand that he could now “see them.” Who could ignore a visit like that? Richard had to learn more about what had just happened, so he began taking classes and researching the ability to communicate with those who have passed into spirit.

Richard is now an ordained Spiritualist minister, Certified Medium, Commissioned Spiritualist Healer.

Aside from being a member of the Lily Dale Assembly, he served on the Board of the National Spiritualist Association of Churches (NSAC) for six years, and he is currently the Vice President of the International Spiritualist Federation and a Director and Teacher with the Inner Spiritual Center in Wayne, New Jersey.

Richard has taught classes and demonstrated mediumship in England, Holland, Scotland, Austria, Switzerland and Germany as well as served a number of Spiritualist churches and centers throughout the United States.

It gives him great pleasure to be of service and to provide information to his clients that help them to come to and understanding that life and love continue after the change known as death.

A description of Spiritual Direction ~ Caroline Myss


Many people have written asking me to provide a description of Spiritual Direction. There are many ways to describe the art of Spiritual Direction. One way that I think offers some clarity is to realize that we engage in the world through both our physical senses and our spiritual senses.

Our physical senses allow us to see, touch, feel, hear and taste the contents of our environment and through those senses, we derive facts, information, and details. We draw certain conclusions and we often refer to those conclusions as “what is true”.

Our spiritual senses, on the other hand, perceive the world around us, absorbing all that cannot be heard or seen, touched or tasted. These subtle, delicate psychic receptors pick up the words we do not speak but feel, the thoughts we transmit through our vibrations and receive from another person. Our spirit reads the air around us and other people, transferring that to our intuitive system.

Which data do we actually rely upon the most, then? What we see and what is said or what we do not see but what is felt? Spiritual direction is a way of validating the unseen world that communicates to you, the realm you actually rely on the most for navigating the path that is your life.

This is the domain of truth that provides you with more direction of your spirit than perhaps you realize and through Spiritual Direction, you finally acknowledge this dialogue. This explanation is one window into why I am so passionate about teaching Spiritual Direction – it validates your spiritual and intuitive instincts.

Shakti Rising: Embracing Shadow and Light on the Goddess Path to Wholeness by Kavitha M. Chinnaiyan MD (Author),‎ Greg Goode (Foreword)

The wisdom of the Mahavidyas, the ten wisdom goddesses who represent the interconnected darkness and light within all of us, has been steeped in esoteric and mystical descriptions that made them seem irrelevant to ordinary life. But with this book, written by a respected cardiologist who found herself on a spiritual search for the highest truth, you’re invited to explore this ancient knowledge and learn how it can be applied to daily struggles and triumphs—and how it can help you find unreserved self-love and acceptance.

The pursuit of contentment is an innate part of the human experience, arising from a fundamental sense of lack or inadequacy—all the things we believe to be wrong with us when we compare or judge ourselves. In our search for peace and happiness, we may find ourselves fighting the shadows within us, trying to repress or disown certain qualities, especially our anger, violence, discomfort, craving, and disappointment. But in order to stop this fight, we must expand our understanding beyond the dualities of good versus bad, right versus wrong, and beautiful versus ugly, and accept the parts of ourselves we’ve tried to deny.

Pulling from Eastern traditions including tantra and yoga, and focusing on the feminine principle of divine energy also known as Shakti, this book bridges the divide between dualistic concepts and non-dual philosophy. By exploring the symbolism of the Mahavidyas (Kali, Tara, Tripurasundari, Bhuvaneshwari, Tripura Bhairavi, Chinnamasta, Dhumavati, Baglamukhi, Matangi, and Kamalatmika)—each with a veiled face representing a destructive quality that perpetuates ignorance and suffering, and a true face representing the wisdom that stimulates profound transformation and liberation—you’ll learn to embrace and incorporate every aspect of who you are.

With practices, self-inquiry prompts, and stories from the author’s own spiritual seeking, this exploration of the divine feminine will gently reveal the source of your fear, pain, and suffering, showing you that when you allow those parts of yourself to arise and simply be, you can finally begin to heal, overcome your limitations, and open to the light and beauty of your true nature.

Kavitha Chinnaiyan, M.D. is an integrative cardiologist and advance cardiac imaging specialist. She combines her medical expertise with eastern wisdom to promote wellness and freedom from suffering. She has studied Ayurveda, yoga, Vedanta, the Direct Path and Tantra with teachers across the globe, the elements of which form her various meditation-centered courses. She lives in Michigan with her husband, two daughters and dog.

The Morning Muse: Mystical Revelations to Live By ~ Octavia Williams (Author)

This book of spiritual guidance and inspiration, invites the serious seeker to discover not only their divinity, but the Master within. Comprising over 250 statements of Truth revealed through meditation, it provides the missing link to living in the world, actually free of human lacks and limitations, and awakened from the illusion of separation from one’s true Self. It can bring about life-changing results immediately. The conscious awareness of Truth through one’s own direct experience of Oneness, breaks apart the mental constructs that have been holding beliefs, opinions and ideas in place, controlling life and obscuring the Truth that is within.

Her 25 years of studying and practicing the principles of Western and Eastern mystical traditions led to a profound shift in Consciousness and “spontaneous” awakening in the summer of 2010 that continues to integrate and expand.

The One Quality Needed for the Path

Love is the essence of Sufism, and all that is needed by the wayfarer. It is love that draws us Home. But we need to reclaim an understanding of love as a spiritual power that belongs to God and underlies all of creation.

Reclaiming the Inner Worlds with Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee


Published on Dec 4, 2016

An awareness of the inner worlds is an essential part of our human heritage—those worlds that are invisible to our physical sight, but exist in other dimensions of reality. However, this awareness has been censored by rational consciousness and our present culture. This talk explores our need to reclaim our connection to these realities, to return to the greater wholeness to which we belong.
