Listen to our recent Soul Sessions podcast episode to discover how your personal narrative can shape your life’s path and what it means to transcend beyond the story into true self-awareness. 
Are you the hero of your own story, or is your narrative holding you back?

Discover how your narrative can shape your life’s path and what it means to transcend beyond the story into true self-awareness. 

We’ll challenge the default scripts handed down by culture and upbringing, learn the importance of responsibility in crafting our narratives and embrace the freedom and success that can come with a narrative that empowers and gives us purpose.

In this episode, we explore:

  • How our personal stories define our identities and limit our potential
  • The transformative practice of non-attachment and how it leads to personal freedom, exemplified by historical figures like Gandhi
  • Techniques for creating a more spiritual and fluid sense of self when life disrupts our personal narratives
  •  The illusion of inherent meaning in external events and how our constructed narratives influence our entire reality
It’s time to redefine your personal narrative and unlock a level of consciousness that can liberate you from your self-imposed limitations.

There’s a whole psychology of a narrative, it’s called narrative psychology. There’s therapies that evolved from it. Of course, there’s deeper philosophical movements that predate these psychologies and techniques. Constructivism is a fancy word to say we’re the creators of our story narrative.

We do create the story. There’s some debate whether someone impresses stories on us, but actually we accept them. We have to take responsibility that even if we were around a narrative from our parents or culture, we decided on some level to accept it. Instead of “They told me I was not good, that is why I don’t feel good enough,” you accepted it on some level. The only way we have power is to take that responsibility.
