Last week I was eating Chinese food in a little restaurant on Spadina Avenue in Toronto with my good friend and fellow author, Barry Spilchuk. I was speaking to him about being snagged (previous article explains how to best deal with snags) in my personal development because I realized that I was hooked onto something massive. I had received some uncomfortable feedback which had created a huge disturbance within me. Because of it I was contracted, uptight and upset, and just really wanted to get through it.
Being the great friend he is, he listened, understood, and could relate my situation to similar times in his life. We all need friends like this—people we can lean on when we’re not seeing clearly. Barry suggested a book to me by writing on a napkin: “The Untethered Soul” by Michael Singer. I bought it the very next day, an am in the process of reading it.
The inspiration for my article this month came from the realization of my snag this summer, my encounter with Barry, and the first few chapters of this book; implementing the amazing work of my journey towards inner freedom by staying open to everything.
I’ve realized that a snag is stored energy, no matter what kind of snag it is, and that it’s very hard work to continue to fight against it, work around it, or keep it locked down inside.
I know for sure that being open has made this the absolute best summer of my life.
I encourage you to take some time to read and contemplate my latest article, Are you open for business?, and remove what’s closing off your ability to receive the abundance that life has to offer.
Invest in this rich information, and be fully open for business.
