FEBRUARY SALON: SIMPLE TRUTHS THAT I HOPE WILL ENRICH YOUR SPIRIT
Last summer I sent out a letter requesting personal stories of acts of service that have been provided to you or that you have given to others. The response was more than overwhelming; it was inspiring and has led me into an entirely new direction of personal and spiritual thought. I decided to share some of the perspectives I gained in this Salon because I feel like writing a “feel good” Salon. The many letters that I received, close to over 1,300 now, made me feel -- well, “good” is not exactly the right word. These letters touched something deep in my soul. I guess one way to put it –- and I’ve never said anything like this before -– is that these letters renewed my sense of love and appreciation for people in general. And that’s something to write about.
So what exactly is it about these wondrous letters that led me into a spiritual place once again? First of all, nothing beats being reminded that, regardless of the vastness of space in this universe, we really are being watched over and cared for, even in the midst of the worst of our struggles. Somehow this universe has a design we cannot comprehend -– one in which the entire setup is mathematical and orderly, and yet our essence is known. Our thoughts are felt and our prayers are answered. I believed that before I read these letters; now I believe it all over again and on a deeper level. It is impossible to saturate yourself with letters containing stories of goodness and generosity and not feel a rush of spiritual force surround you like a warm blanket. At times I had to stop reading the letters because I became so emotional. I wanted to reach right through these letters and embrace the authors with a hug and gratitude that they took the time to share a piece of their life’s journey with me and with others. As I sit here writing this Salon to you, that warm rush fills this room again, because it feels so good to share with others such lovely stories about the people who live in -– or near -– our lives.
Of the many touching and surprising insights that I gained through reading all these letters, I was most taken by this fact: it requires so very little to do so much for another person. When someone we know is going through a very difficult time, it’s easy to decide that there is little we can do to help out, especially when it may appear that an individual needs so much. And yet, people who shared incredible stories of loss, of homelessness, or of the death of a loved one recalled that what mattered most to them during these times was the friend who dropped in, for example, to offer support without needing to be thanked for dropping by -– emphasis on “without needing to be thanked.” What people most appreciated was to be in the presence of someone who knew how to give without the expectation of recognition. Many, many people cited how extraordinarily healing it was to be with someone who was not as psychically or emotionally needy as they were, but had come by simply to be present.
I gave this example much thought, because so many people mentioned it. What is it about not having a private agenda that is so healing? The only explanation that makes any sense to me at all is a psychic one. I have maintained for years that this business about being “gifted” as an intuitive is an exaggerated bit of New Age hype. The truth is that you are all so intuitive that a great deal of your inner stress comes from the fact that you do not, first of all, accept that truth as a fact of your life; and secondly, you don’t know how to manage all of the psychic data that continually filters into your system. How can this be otherwise? Consider how much time the average individual in our spiritual culture focuses on him- or herself. We have become a culture of the “self.” We are forever learning and testing new methods of processing our lives, from rehashing our past to examining our present relationships to fretting about our future. We investigate falling out of relationships and our emotional insecurities so much that it’s become a lifestyle. Relationships are valued, in fact, by whether the “other” can support our endless need for personal growth, which in many cases means an agreement to deal with the “other’s” pain.
We are saturated with spiritual material and with a vocabulary scripted for inner exploration. All of these activate your psyche. You cannot become an internally focused individual without also expanding your life’s psychic field. And a part of that consequence includes an increased ability to sense the agendas of other people -– not just under stress, but also in general. What is the psychic energy like of a private agenda? Let’s consider that for a moment. Think about the times when you’ve had an itinerary with someone, when you’ve had something on your mind or in your heart that you wanted to discuss with someone, but were hesitant for whatever reasons. The other person might inquire, “Something on your mind?” And if you deny it because you are fearful of the outcome, that other individual will not believe you because he or she “feels” your private agenda. It transfers into that other person’s psyche as heavily as a sledgehammer, because the vibrations of a private agenda are thick with their presence. The mood between two people with private agendas becomes tense and conversations become uncomfortable, to say the least. A nervous atmosphere descends into the auric field between you and the other and you can feel a separation, because your private agenda is like a black hole draining all the energy in the atmosphere. It’s as impossible to disguise a private agenda as to fail to pick up one.

To those of you who took the time to write those letters to me, let me say again, you have changed my life and I hope, through the book that I am writing, to change the lives of others through sharing your letters. While I obviously cannot put 1,300 letters into one book, I have tried to represent each one of you in some way through the narrative between the letters. I am so grateful to each of you and to all of you who support my work. I can never thank you enough.
With so much love,

SACRED CONTRACTS: The Journey an Interactive Tool for Guidance
by Caroline Myss with Peter Occhiogrosso
74 Cards and Chart with other accessories
Retails $29.95 Our Price $27.00
Caroline Myss’ invites readers to gain a unique perspective on their lives by working with a family of personal archetypes and their location on the Archetypal Wheel, similar in format to an astrological chart. Sacred Contracts: The Journey expands on the insights contained in the book and introduces whole new levels of awareness. Anyone who has read Sacred Contracts will certainly want to experience Caroline’s new insights firsthand. Those who may be unfamiliar with her book will be amazed to find its essence contained within the structure of this interactive experience.
We are each born with a Sacred Contract, an agreement to learn certain lessons and develop wisdom in this lifetime. Among our allies in the pursuit of wisdom is a set of 12 archetypes drawn from the inexhaustible well of the collective unconscious. Recognizing those archetypes within our psyche helps us learn how to benefit from their energies. We all share four survival-oriented archetypes: the Child, Victim, Prostitute, and Saboteur. Part of the challenge and excitement of working with your archetypal patterns consists in discovering how to select the other eight archetypes that make up your inner support team of 12, and learning more about how their energies help or hinder you.
Those 12 archetypes, when placed on the Archetypal Wheel through an intuitive process, make up your Chart of Origin, a diagram of key forces at work throughout your entire life. Although they are your primary archetypal patterns, however, they are not the only ones that influence you. There are countless archetypes in the collective unconscious, most of which come into play only in specific situations. Discovering the identity and function of the secondary archetypes in relation to your psyche is the goal of Sacred Contracts: The Journey. It is an interactive experience that can be used alone or by up to four people, and can add new layers of insight to that provided by your Chart of Origin. These levels represent a heightened understanding of archetypes that Caroline has developed since she wrote Sacred Contracts.
Sacred Contracts: The Journey is a way of seeking guidance for a particular question or issue in each participant’s life. You name the matter on which you are seeking guidance at the beginning of the Journey, and compile insights and guidance as you move along. It is not necessary to complete the Journey in one sitting, or even in one day. You may want to leave it out and return to it as time permits.
