The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself

In relation to my post the other day about how I manage my anxiety, I read this book called The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself by Michael Singer. I’m actually reading it for the second time, now. It is rocking my world and I am telling every person to read it. It hit me the other day, though, that maybe not everyone will find it as enlightening as I do because they don’t have the same “issues” that I have.

But my golly! I have had anxious feelings since childhood. I was one of those hyper sensitive, observes more than was ever good for me children. As I have aged, I let the anxiety hijack my life. If I felt it, it had to be real, right?

The book has changed my life. For example, the other day I woke up with anxiety over some dream that I had that was really stressful. My heart was clenched and I was already in fight or flight mode. But I was able to look at the anxiety, ask myself what the anxiety was about–did I have any reason for it? Was it valid? Did I need it? No, I never need anxiety. I took some deep breaths and I said, “thanks, but no thanks. goodbye.” And that was that. I got out of bed and went on with my day! A simple thing it may seem to some, but in all my life I had never known I could do such a thing! That same anxiety would have stuck with me for a few days.

Here’s a little download for an 8×10 print that I painted the other day. The Untethered Soul

I’m going to need a new book soon. Do you have any suggestions??
