Stories Matter

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like to listen to stories. Do you? (OK, I don’t mean long, drawn out, pointless narratives. I mean a story with a beginning, a middle and an end.)

I learn from stories and I teach through stories. I learned about this young woman from the story her mom told me when she made the initial appointment for her daughter. I learned her daughter’s story by asking questions and listening carefully for her answers.

The story she told herself kept her from asking for protection when she needed it. Using the Logosynthesis sentences allowed her to let go of that story freed her to create a new one.

Then, my telling the story of my work with her allowed me to teach you about how valuable this process was in healing a long-standing trauma–even without knowing all the details of the story.

What are the stories you tell yourself that no longer serve you? Is it time for you to experiment with using this process to let them go?

This paragraph is a comment I wrote about a passage on Page 45 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®.) You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to Bublish.com, where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book. This is a site where authors share of their work. You can subscribe to my musings, there, as well as to the musings of many other authors. It’s a great place to learn about new books and I recommend that you visit.
