Magical Stories and the Power of Transformation

We can’t always change the external world, but we can change the story we tell ourselves about that world.


- Using “Once Upon a Time” helps remind me that it is only a story and I can change it.


- Using  “the story I am telling myself….” in relationships can help friends and family hear my feeling and make it easier for me to listen to their reality.  (from Getting the Love You Want – Hendrix)


- GATH or Gathing: Being Guided on one’s pATH.  The intuitive sense of being/doing what fits for me in the moment. Gathing one’s own life encourages others to follow their unique gath in life.
