The telling and hearing of stories is a bonding ritual that breaks through illusions of separateness and activates a deep sense of our collective interdependence. – Annette Simmons

 

 

Kahlil Gibran says that next to hunger and thirst, our most basic human need is storytelling.

Everyday, we are telling ourselves stories in our minds. These ongoing stories, whether they are true or not, make us who we are today and will dictate who our children’s children will be in the future.  These stories are being passed on, simply by the way we think, live and act.

“Perhaps it is how we are made; perhaps words of truth reach us best through the heart, and stories and songs are the language of the heart.”  Stephen Lawhead

We are building our world and our life out of these stories.

So the question is, “What story are you telling yourself everyday?”

“Is the story you are telling yourself, the truth?”

“How is this story impacting your life and those around you?”

“Would you be willing to change the story in order to create the life you want?”

When our stories are based upon truth and our soul purpose, we will ignite the same truth and story within others and it will move them and drive them in a direction they never thought possible.  Who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words, because of your story.

We each have a unique story to express to the world. Each story is as important as the next, and each story has a message for us to learn from.

You are the unique author of this story called ‘life.’  Is it a best seller yet?

  1. A wonderful post to remind us of what we do unconsciously. Making our storytelling conscious is one important step toward healing as well as creating the life we want, as you beautifully articulated. Thank you! 💕

    1. I think those unexpected twists and turns, as devastating and life changing as they are, somehow lead us closer to our truth and our authentic soul work. It’s difficult to believe at first, but it does arrive at some point. May you receive all the peace and courage you need Helen, so you can continue to envision a clear future. Much love 💚💕

  2. Such truth in these words, the stories we tell ourselves. Sometimes we become locked into them too, and the drama they provide in our lives. I am working on telling the story that I want to manifest. By the way, I will be in NZ Nov 12 – 26 should you be on the island!

    1. So true about our stories Heather. Once we are addicted to the drama, we can lock ourselves in for life. You on the other hand, are telling a beautiful empowered story to the world! I really wish I could catch up with you in Nov but my eldest daughter is graduating from Psychology and my other daughter is dancing in events in November too! How about you email me and we can work out a time to do a Viber call which is free!

  3. A post providing the fundamental basics for how we evolved. Storytelling goes way back to our
    very beginning long before written language. It was the common form of communicating.
    For Native Americans and original peoples everywhere it was our language.
    A wonderful post Karen illustrating the power of communication and storytelling.

    1. The gift of storytelling is ancient Eddie, and each day I honor the ancestors that have gone before me. Archeologists here in Australia, have recently discovered that the aboriginal culture may go back as far as 80,000 years! That’s a lot of beautiful stories and I wish more than anything it was our language now. Thankyou Eddie for your wisdom and knowledge. 🙏🏻

  4. Karen I guess we are watching our stories unfold and its the way we choose to react to what comes up is the key here. I hope my children can see that the simple things in life should be appreciated and that material things come and go. Life is to short as you already know. xxx k
