OPEN by Jessie Moss was a book written from the author's experiences. The author had experienced an awakening, and she shared what that was like with her readers. Starting from the concept of "Self," Jessie reiterated the importance of connecting and aligning oneself with "Self." Life-altering events could prompt an individual's journey to self-awakening. However, it must be a conscious decision to embark on the journey. The author examined the awakening process and what was involved as she showed readers what to expect after the alignment to "Self" was achieved. She also looked at concepts like self-love, forgiveness, personal truth, and divine timing and how they all factor into the awakening journey.
This was a brief personal motivational book penned down by the author from her own experiences in life. Being a personal journey already lived by the author lent authenticity to the book's content. It gave the book that personal edge that readers can better relate to. Some aspects of the book aroused emotions while reading, especially the parts that carried the author's story. Some readers may have had a similar experience. Either way, the author's willingness to share her story and her openness can cause readers to allow themselves to be vulnerable in a way that would allow the words in the book to work on them.
What the author showed in her book was that negativity can be cyclic. The fantastic part of OPEN was that she directed readers to look to the root of their issues to solve the problems and not just tackle the peripherals. Jessie was all about practicality, and her book included practical exercises that readers could engage in, which she placed under a heading titled "Inner Work Reflections." Some of these exercises included the recitation of mantras, journaling, and writing a letter to one's fear. The book's chapters commenced with uplifting poetry that embodied the message of the chapters.
The book contained a lot of motivational content that may set readers on a path to self-liberation. The words were gentle and understanding. The author encouraged her readers to confront their painful truths and to work through them. She identified that suppressing negative experiences can be harmful and should be dealt with head-on. One of the motivators in the book was the author's statement that the only thing on our way is ourselves. She acknowledged with that statement that every individual has within them the power to achieve whatever they set their mind to.
A profound message of OPEN was the message of "Self," which formed the center of the book's content. The author's message of connecting to "Self" was a transforming message that is pivotal in an individual's life journey because the message of self-love and acceptance was closely attached to it.
OPEN is an easy read. It is exceptionally edited and embodies great, insightful, and life-changing knowledge. I love every part of the book and find nothing to dislike. Readers who enjoy motivational and inner-healing content will most appreciate this book. Therefore, I rate OPEN five out of five stars.
