Living your bigger story

It’s said that a story is the shortest route between a human being and the truth.

Consciously or unconsciously, our lives are directed by stories. If we are not aware that we are living a story, it’s likely we are stuck inside a narrow and constricted one, a story bound tight around us by other people’s definitions and expectations. When we reach, consciously, for a bigger life story, we put ourselves in touch with tremendous sources of healing, creativity and courage.

The right story can help to heal our bodies. The latest research in biochemistry and neuro-immunology confirms what shamans have known for millennia: the body believes in images, and does not seem to distinguish between a physical act and an imagined event. Give the body a story it can believe in, and the body will respond accordingly.

When we know the bigger story and are burning to tell it and to live it, we are driven to create, and make creative life choices. If you know your life Work, then it is no longer work; every day is a play day.

Knowing the bigger story gives us courage. If you know you are living a deeper drama, it becomes easier to cope with the ups and downs of your everyday dramas.

How do we find the bigger story in our lives?

The answer is easier than we might think. Our Big story is hunting us. All we need do is put ourselves in the places where we can be found. That means listening to our dreams and allowing at least a little unstructured, unscheduled time in a day to pay attention to the many voices in which the world is speaking to us.
