Reunion of the Minds

Back in December, I arrived early to meet my family at Glow Saskatoon. (Me, early? I know, right?) Well, apparently it was synchronistic because while I was looking out the window watching for any sign that my family was going to show up, I heard, “Kristin?”

I turned around and was completely surprised to see my inventor friend, Kyle, looking at me.

“Whoa. Hi. What are you doing here?” I said, completely caught off guard. Never in a million years had I expected to accidentally run into him again.

He was there with his entire family, the last of whom were coming in the front doors, waiting to go into Glow for their 4pm booking time. He casually introduced me to his family while I was tried to get my bearings.

Now, this may not seem like a big deal. However, if you consider that he lives between the Cayman Islands and Niagara Falls for most of the year, then also consider the fact that Glow was on for over six weeks with multiple booking times throughout each day of the week—you’ll see that the odds were almost impossible that we would run into each other at the same place on the same day at the same time. What’s more, each of our moms were the ones who booked the Glow family get togethers at the exact same time. Crazy, right?! (Must be another coincidence! Ha!)

Nonetheless, here we were.

It was yet another serendipitous run-in. We chatted briefly and agreed to get in touch for a catch up visit.

We had barely spoken since we first met in Toronto back in April of 2018, so I had no idea he would be in Saskatchewan for Christmas. In case you would like to catch up on our synchronistic meet up from 2018, click here to read what went down.

Last Friday, we were finally able to coordinate our schedules to connect for a visit. To say it was an inspiring visit would be a wild understatement. I knew it would blow my mind wide open, just like it did the first time.

“So, what’s your end goal?” he asked as soon as he had ordered his drink. “Where do you want to take this?”

Big questions right out of the gate. I would expect nothing less from a mind like his. Not that I was unprepared. I know my vision. I have a regular date with myself, my values, my desires, my hubby, and my businesses to align and up-level my vision. End goals don't have to be static or limiting, though. They are more like big lighthouses along the way to keep you on track. You may not know every step along the way, but your vision keeps you aligned when you are connected with how you want to FEEL along the way.

Humbly, Kyle filled me in on all that had transpired in his business in the past 18 months. And when I say transpired, I should actually say perspired. This guy is a go-getter. He has a big vision, he aims high, and he doesn’t let a damn thing get in his way. It is incredibly inspiring to be in the presence of people who think THIS BIG. This mindset is almost contagious as it encourages others to think bigger, too.

He has been willing to do whatever it takes to get where he wants to go. Not only had Kyle worked on his invention for four years prior to when we met, but he also invested countless hours, finances, and resources into creating the vision he could see in his mind. He has a small team that helps him make it all happen, but he knows his product better than the back of his hand. He has tested, tweaked, optimized, added to, and perfected every possible facet of his invention.

How inspiring is that?!

Just wait, it gets better.

After listening to the incredible workings of his mind, his thoughts, and his vision, I couldn’t help but wonder, “Do you ever sleep?”

“Well, ya. But I do have a hard time sleeping. I work best in the evenings, so sometimes it is hard to wind down.”

“That’s not surprising at all. You don’t ever shut your mind off. Do you still get your best ideas in the shower?” ”Yep,” he responded. ”So, do you just take crazy long showers then?” I inquired.

“Yep. Really long.”

I laughed. That’s when I pulled out Magnus O’Meere, Mind Pioneer, opened it up, and pointed to the page with the list of mind hacks. “Maybe you should try some of these techniques—you know, open up your range for getting into your flow state.”

Kyle began reading through the list. It was a surreal moment that etched into my mind. I finally got to show a real-live inventor my children’s book about inventing! Not only that, but he was intrigued and interested in it. Because, after all, the book is more about the impressive power of the mind, intuition, creativity, and imagination than it is about inventing. My book was making the inventor stretch his mind and I could see his wheels turning.

Mission accomplished, I thought. I felt so proud that I’m sure my smile was visible from every corner of the coffee shop. I couldn’t help myself, so I snapped a pic:

“Read this part,” I said, pointing. “I added this because of what you do.”

The lines read:

"With dedication his minds were able to merge to perfect epic visions that were stuck on the verge. He hit many roadblocks, but by taking a shower,

Solutions emerged with an awe-striking power."
