Write your life story in 5 minutes …
What can possibly be the value of telling your story? And which story? It’s the story of your life. You may argue that you can never tell anybody the whole story of your life because it’s too long. Okay.
But what would you do if I told you Please tell your life story within five minutes. You have not one second longer. You would focus, wouldn’t you, on the important items, the stuff that really counted in your life, relationships, shortcomings, insights you got. Thus your life story can be a thousand pages long, and it can be one page long — or half a page at that.
Actually when you begin to write, you should not think about how long your story is going to be. Is it important? Important is only that you tell your story — and that you see the value, the need to formulate verbally all the feelings that were involved in the many moments, days, months and years of your life. It is important! Please believe me for now.
Telling your story is so important because it effectuates a healing process within you, and a profound change in your personality. You might say Well, I can’t imagine that just telling my story should effectuate a healing, how can? Yes.
Take a dream. In many dreams stories are told. Dreams are stories. That does not mean that they are less real than outside reality. Life as such is but a story, isn’t it? There is not one dream researcher today who would contest that dreams have a healing effect upon the psyche and the soma. The same is true with writing down your story.
In my view, language is the magic of the universe and directly connected to the universal spirit or Logos. We do not need any external agent for healing trauma or rescripting ourselves.
The wonderful thing is namely that we don’t need to change the actual inner scripts that are negative or destructive, we only need to render them conscious by spitting out the stuff — which is what I call garbage removal.
What then happens is that our inner mind by itself changes the scripts or rewrites them. What no computer can do, our mindbody does constantly.
It’s because memory is not located in the brain, but in the aura or luminous body, a subtle energy shell that surrounds and envelopes our physical body.
That is why memory, which is coded holistically in our luminous body is a self-renewing process, or self-updating software. However, the update must be triggered by consciousness which is conscious awareness.
Consciousness is doing a change in the energetic setup of our memory surface which in turn triggers the self-update.
This way, without any therapy, all our inner scripts can be changed.
For this to make happen, you must write in a stream-of-consciousness style, as fast as you can, and without thinking. It’s a bit like automatic writing. Then you pour it out and you get rid of all the traumas you’ve ever experienced.
Now, go to practice, and do it.
