As you are about to step into a new year, sparkling with possibilities and shining with opportunities, don’t you feel a compulsion to get rid of the old? Besides the physical (lose weight, eat better, etc.) have you thought about the stories you have created about your past that you still tell yourself today?
Stories are the way you relate to the outside world. Stories hold your interpretation of events and people who reflect back your own recognition of self-worth and value. Stories can be uplifting or damaging, expanding or limiting, accepting or judgmental.
The wondrous thing about stories is that you – only you – create them.
The disastrous thing about stories is that you – only you – create them.
As we move into 2015, why not begin by pulling out the stories about your past that keep you playing small? You know the ones I mean – when your brother/sister got something instead of you, when you made a mistake about money and decided that you would never be good with money, or when your pet destroyed something and you blamed yourself.
No one can see inside your head except for you. You are the only person on the planet who can change your story. Remember – you are not changing the facts involved – just your interpretation of it. And that makes all the difference.
I call it Story Alchemy. It is a simple, 4 step process that changes your stories from lead to gold. I have used it in my own life and it has created miracles in my relationships, my work and my faith. As I began alchemizing my limiting stories, I found myself reacting differently to that person or situation. As my reactions changed, my relationships changed. I am happier, freer to express myself authentically and peaceful with my place in the world.
Instead of playing the victim card, I began to play the empowerment card.
And that had made all the difference.
It all starts with you. You are at the center of your universe. You decide how you want to see yourself as you move from the center to the outside. Why not see yourself as a powerful creator, a positive influence, a hero?
