I bought the book of Caroline Myss, Anatomy of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Power and Healing years ago, but did not read it. While I was meditating in early April, I saw the answer to a question I asked in this book, so I started to read. Like every book I read just in time, I quaffed it in a week. There are very nice information and stories about the soul-body-mind relationship. There is a separate chapter for each chakra and at the end of each chapter, there are questions for self-examination. What I share here is from the Sixth Chakra: The Power of the Mind section. Now when I look back, I understand why I wrote about “The Pope and Justice” from Tarot, that I shared in Turkish, after 12 days.
What beliefs do you have that cause you to interpret the actions of others in a negative way?
What negative behavioral patterns continually surface in your relationships with others?
What attitudes do you have that disempower you?
What beliefs do you continue to accept that you know are not true?
Are you judgmental? If so, what situations or relationships tend to bring out that tendency in you?
Do you give yourself excuses for behaving in negative ways?
Can you recall instances in which you were confronted with a more profound level of truth than you were used to hearing and found the experience intimidating?
What beliefs and attitudes would you like to change in yourself? Are you willing to make a commitment to making those changes?
Are you comfortable thinking about your life in impersonal terms?
Are you frightened of the changes that might occur in your life, should you openly embrace a conscious lifestyle?
I changed two questions as:
7. Can you recall instances in which you were confronted with a truth and found the experience intimidating?
10. What might occur in your life, if you openly embrace a conscious lifestyle, at best and at worst?
