To be able to ask self: “What story am I telling myself right now?”.
Especially when smack-bang in the middle of telling yourself a story that feels not-so-fabulous.
The moment you illuminate the story you are telling yourself, you create the space to change it. If you want to.
Imagine every thought you have ever had or will have are like stories.
That’s a lotttttttt of stories. And that’s okay.
You are a cosmic collection of stories.
You’ve got stories about who you are, and who you are not. Stories about what you can do, or can not. Stories about your mind, body, heart and energy. Stories about your life, how it’s been, how it’s going to be, how others see it, how you prefer it and all your desires about that. There’s stories about your experiences, others around you, your relationships, community, humanity, Earth and all living beings. There’s the stories about the Universe/ Source/ Mama Creator and your connection with that.
There’s stories you are in love with and stories you don’t fancy at all.
Imagine this collection of stories within you are like a grand ever-expanding library, a library you can step into.
Now imagine you pick up the nearest book, open it and hold it up to your eyes. And as long as you hold that particular book up to your eyes, everything you see is filtered through the story within its pages.
Maybe you choose this story deliberately and are completely aware you want to move through the day focused on a story all about “Everything always works out for me!” or “I can do this!”.
Or you might pick a story without noticing. Like maybe you spill your tea in the morning and zoom in on… “This is going to be another crap day” or “Bah! Everything always goes wrong for me”.
If you literally moved through your day holding a book up to your eyes, soon enough you’d be bumping into things. Which is kind of what goes on with any story you are telling yourself. Soon enough you begin to bump into things that are the same vibration as the story you are telling yourself.
Whatever the story is that has your attention, that story will draw to you things that are of the same vibration.
The more you like the story, the more the things you bump into feel good to you.
The more you don’t like the story, the more you bump into things that feel not so fabulous.
How do you know what story you are telling yourself?
Ask your brilliant self.
You can ask even when you think you don’t know the answer.
You can tune into this question during meditation.
You can work with this question as a journal prompt.
When you are liking the story you are telling, brilliant. This is a more easeful time to practice asking the question, “What story am I telling myself right now?”.
When you don’t like the story you are telling yourself, that’s usually the least likely time you want to ask, “What story am I telling myself right now?”. It’s also one of the most empowering times to ask this perspective-shifting question and change the story you are telling yourself.
You can change the story you are telling yourself.
You can choose a more empowering story.
You can align with a story that is in deeper resonance with your divine self.
You can give yourself permission to tell a better-feeling story.
If you want to.
You are a cosmic collection of stories. There is gold within each one. Be kind to you wherever you are.
