Story Slaves

How to tell your life story. Huh? “I don’t have a life story,” or, “My life story isn’t interesting,” or, “Only famous or remarkable people have a life story worth telling.”

Did you just think one of those thoughts or some other variation? You’re perfectly normal if you did. And guess what? Those normal thoughts are stories. Stories that limit your personal power.

Don’t think so. Listen to this podcast with an open mind, and you may just have a huge aha moment that liberate you and breaks the bond of slavery to the stories you create all the time.

“I’m not a slave to any story,” you say? Yes, you are, and your “I am not” statement is another story.

The truth is that we, all of us, are brilliant storytelling machines. We create identity stories (often negative), religious stories, political stories, and stories about absolutely anyone or anything that is part of our human experience.

This is neither good nor bad,  right nor wrong. It just is.

HOW YOUR MIND CREATES STORIES

Actually, it can be bad for us if we are not aware of how this process works in our lives. The moment you become aware, you have the power to create and live into stories that make you happy, stories that enrich and empower you.

This short podcast cuts to the chase about how your mind works. It reveals your mind as a trickster who attaches to every thought and creates a story out of it – if you let it.

That’s what worry is all about. Your mind begins with a thought; it usually expands that thought with the question,”what if?” What if this happens? What if that happens? What if-what if-what if?

When  you are a slave to “what if,” you allow yourself to feel a wide range of unpleasant emotions. Guilt, anger, fear, the list goes on. Then, you are a slave to your story and your feelings. No fun?

One way to snap the chains that keep you enslaved is to practice meditation. You will learn a simple powerful technique in this podcast called the blue sky technique. You’ll definitely want to learn it because it may very well be your liberator.

Once you get a taste of mental freedom, you will love it, and you won’t want to slip back into being a story slave. You’ll realize that you know how to tell your life story in a way that gives you fulfillment and power.
