Here’s an excerpt from this chapter:
“How can we use storytelling to heal ourselves of the past and unburden our soul? In my opinion, the process requires the following five steps:
- Get conscious of your story – The Consciousness
- Decide to what extent you would want to share – The Content
- Turn wounds into gifts – The Cure
- Look at tragedy as if it were comedy – The Comedy
- Become a witness to your story – The Context
The Universe designed us for storytelling and story listening. Our hearts connect to stories, our brains are wired for stories and our ears want to listen to stories. We want our stories to be heard because our experiences are stories, our complaints are stories and sometimes the biggest burdens on our soul are our untold stories.”
Telling your story from a place of compassion and love for yourself, without feeling like a victim and having a compassionate listener who knows how to listen fully will bring about lightness of heart and deep healing.
