In my sessions and my classes, I chat a lot about this idea of your life’s story. I also think the term “story” can be interpreted many ways–your belief systems, your actual story plot point by plot point, your repeating patterns, etc. But at its most basic, story is the essence of who you are and how you came to be. That’s a pretty sacred thing, yet we often refer to our story in critical terms–as something we tell ourselves, but isn’t really true, or something that needs to be adjusted or fixed–so that we can go out into the world and live our fullest life.
It’s interesting, so many people want to know what their future holds during a reading, but I think the most powerful thing you can do is to understand your past. Have you ever had a moment in life where someone tried to put a narrative on you—tried to tell you what your story was going to be if you didn’t do X, Y, or Z?
