Using a 27 inch wooden hunting arrow, one end of the arrow is placed at the soft, supple part of your throat, the other end against a hard surface. The goal is for you to bend and then snap the arrow in half, with no damage to yourself.
The arrow break is deliberate movement…and to break it, the move can only be forward.
Just the same in life, everything is forward.
As you place the arrow to the soft, supple part of the throat, you may feel a mix of emotions. One of them being vulnerability, your internal voice could be screaming at you to ‘resist, resist, resist…this is gonna hurt!
