What’s Your Story?
What is your story? Do you have a story that defines you? How does that story serve you? What is your reward from being that character in the story?
For most of my life my story was that I had gone through a phenomenal amount of abuse, my relationship with my family was very difficult, I was the outcast and I didn’t have approval or support from my family. Now that story is real, it is true. It also served to maintain my status as never being good enough, being inferior to everyone and it was difficult to have a sense of worth or confidence with anything that I did.
My story is something that I would share with dear friends later in life and anyone that would listen for most of my life, it would define who I was to them. They served to solidify my crappy life and that I had so much stuff to get over and work through.
When you share your story, whether it is a good, sad, bad, fun, boring or inspiring the people you share your story with contribute to making that story more real. They hold that story as true for you.
Working with people in business the most common stories I hear is, “I’ve hit a block”, “I’m stuck”, “I can’t get past this point”. They all have a very similar energy.
For me there is a ‘pause’ right before something shows up. There is a time when energy builds up under the surface and physically there is no evidence of change, but underneath the energy is churning and building up momentum. If you create a story then you start to slow down that energy. If you share your story with others then they start to make that real for you by slowing down the build up of energy even more.
What you focus on you receive. What you perceive you receive. Your story defines what you are getting and what you will get.
My new defining story is how I spent nine months chanting for a minimum of three hours a day and trance dancing for at least one hour every day to find what came after Buddhism. This lead me to quit my job and hop on a play to Reno, Nevada. Where I then drove to Lake Tahoe and literally drove right to the bookstore where one of my Native American teachers worked and one of her Native teachers just happened to be stopping by, he lived a four drive away. I then spent just over ten years training with Native American Medicine people and had three of them fly out to the UK to spend months teaching me and training me where I lived. This is my new story.
Does this mean that I wasn’t abused, that I didn’t struggle as a child, that I spent most of life wanting to die and that I was a suicide queen? No. That was me, but it’s no longer me. It was the story that I was being, it was the story that I used for people to understand me and to agree what I horrible life I had and to justify not having more fun, happiness, peace, great relationships, a successful business, money and a happy family.
My new story is that I took a chance, I followed an energy, I followed information that I received from trance dancing and quit my job (effectively I was told if I went on that plane I was fired, so I was fired or quit, you choose) got on a plane and went to Lake Tahoe, where I didn’t know one single person to find Native Americans that I was having visions of while dancing. It sounds nuts. It’s as nuts as my old story, but in a more yummy and delicious way. I was welcomed with open arms. The Natives saw my talents, abilities, my courage and my dedication to following Spirit and my inner knowing and they embraced me with open arms and shared their knowledge.
The Native American Medicine people had so much value and adoration for me that at three different times they flew out on their own to a country they had never been with to work with me, to further my training. This was at their expense. I didn’t pay them to come, they came because they wanted to. Because I was that valuable, that amazing. This is my story. This is what I am going to be sharing with people from now on.
What is YOUR story? Will you share it with me? Will you share it with the world? Are you willing to have a story that you share that supports you in being the phenomenal being that you truly be?
I adore you!
Thank you for being you!
P.S. What would it take for you to share your story here?
The whole purpose of my sharing my story is to give
the contrast. What I am asking for is what story you
are functioning from now and if you are willing to
change that. Is your story serving you? Is it supporting
you in growing your business and being happy in
