The power of narrative: what’s your story?

If you’ve ever doubted the power of a story, consider the masterful use of mainstream media messaging to generate a world of fear, using all the elements of a gripping thriller. Some would say it’s a work of fiction loosely based on the facts—an elaborate story woven around distorted data, with large doses of poetic licence and embellishment thrown in for dramatic effect.

Gifted with imagination, creativity and playfulness, we love stories—partly because they can transport us to another reality, which may lift us if our lives are not working as well as we’d like. We are also inherently trusting, which can sometimes make us gullible… if we don’t do our own due diligence, mindful of distorted perceptions in a world of widespread corruption. In fact, we are so gullible that we believe everything we tell ourselves.

This can be good or bad, depending on our own narrative. Have you examined yours? What do you tell yourself about you, every day? What do you tell yourself if you fail at something, get rejected in a relationship, don’t get the job you wanted or keep running out of money?

“You may be brilliant yet broke,” says Bob Proctor, author of The Art of Living, while others may be far less brilliant but fabulously rich. Why? Because of early negative programming that can then become your own personal narrative—the story you tell yourself about you. More accurately, it’s the story you were told about yourself growing up that you now keep re-telling, even though it may not be true at all. Some of it may be, and you certainly don’t want to rewrite the good bits. But a negative narrative doesn’t serve you, even if you think it’s valid.

You've got this!

You are far better off believing something good about yourself than believing something that might seem more realistic, more viable or whatever other ‘sensible’ spin you put on it. And that’s the other handy thing: you decide the spin you put on your life, your self, your worth, and your lovability. You set the standard for how you are treated, how wealthy you are and how fulfilled you deserve to be.

The current mainstream narrative is a wonderful parable for our times, filled with rich symbolism and life lessons. Many of us already know it’s got nothing to do with health. But it’s not about the so-called vaccines, either.

The crux of the matter is faith in self—believing in our own immune systems, our knowledge, our innate wisdom and intuition, and creation itself, which has equipped us with the means to deal with pathogens—physically, mentally and spiritually. So it’s not a debate about whether the ‘vaccines’ work or not; it’s about whether we work or not.

If we don't understand the intricate workings and higher faculties of the body, mind, spirit and cosmos, we will tend to trust ‘the authorities’ rather than ourselves (and this is true in every area of life). If we don’t understand how to create or sustain health, we will be more reliant on others and more susceptible to fear-mongering. And we probably won’t stop to ask why, if governments truly are concerned about our well-being, they are not doing all the things that actually fortify health, rather than imposing divisive inhuman restrictions and using toxic injections to undermine health, while promoting dependence and subservience.

Another interesting dynamic in the current crisis is virtue-signalling, based on a belief in serving the greater good. This might seem like altruism, to some, but it's usually more to do with a need for inclusion, acceptance and validation, due to a lack of faith in self. If we have a strong sense of self, with healthy self-worth, we don’t need that kind of external validation; we already have it within. Nor do we need someone else making our personal health choices for us, however well-intentioned they might be.

When we see how those who choose to be injected are socially ‘acceptable’ and part of a much larger club, we may feel less than if we choose not to sign up. Being in the minority, we may, deep down, feel unacceptable because of the exclusion—as well as the rejection of our knowledge and awareness. After all, we’ve done the research and we know the facts, backed by scientific data from bona fide verifiable sources, as well as countless testimonies from reputable scientists and doctors (all the stuff that’s been censored by mainstream media).

Yet, despite being denounced as irresponsible or selfish by many of our injected peers and even heads of government, most of us want what's best for people and planet. We may also realize that we ourselves might just as readily have got with the program, if we hadn't been exposed to the truth. Hopefully, therefore, we have more compassion for humanity, more concern for our fellow humans (including those who condemn us, as well as those who regret being injected), more wisdom about the deeper truth of our reality, and a more enlightened vision of what’s possible for our world. 

So we must not put ourselves down or allow ourselves to get down because of this. We must demonstrate, embody and give ourselves whatever qualities others are not giving us: acceptance, compassion, understanding and respect. And we must keep feeding a vision of the world we want—what I call pre-living and pre-loving our ideal reality—rather than reacting to the dysfunction around us and within.

If we consider the official narrative, we can monitor our reactions to it. Then we can see what’s missing and what conclusions we may subconsciously come to about ourselves, such as: 

I’m not wanted.

I’m not being heard.

My contribution means nothing.

Nothing I say makes any difference.

I’m outnumbered and it’s not safe.

If we are feeling any of those things, we need to remind ourselves that they echo some of our early negative programming. This is handy, because we get to see what parts of our narrative we need to change to affirm who we truly are and to start leveraging the power we have to orchestrate our own lives.

How might you then rewrite your own narrative?

I’m not wanted becomes: I’m a precious resource, with unique value, insights and wisdom.

I’m not being heard becomes: I heed and acknowledge my own wisdom, allowing it to guide my life.

My contribution means nothing becomes: My contribution is unique to me and the very act of contributing (with love and respect for all) helps me while helping others and connecting me with other like-minded humans.

Nothing I say makes any difference becomes: My words have power and I use them wisely when talking to myself and others, aligning them with my actions and emotions. That makes all the difference in the world, literally changing my personal reality.

I’m outnumbered and it’s not safe becomes: There are countless others like me out there, wishing to connect, to share their hearts and visions, and to co-create the enlightened world we want. I create my own safety by embodying healthy self-worth and attracting the complement of that in my life.

Here are a few others that I regularly use when facing fear or a sticky issue:

  • I always find the perfect solution.
  • I trust myself and my body and I always find a higher way forward.
  • Life is easy and everything flows.
  • Breathe. Hug. Laugh. Repeat.

The more I declare these statements, the more true they become and the more I say them, creating an upward spiral of expansiveness, rather than a downward spiral of diminishing returns.

What makes a narrative / story powerful?

All the evidence is around us, with the current crisis creating some distressing outcomes for those who ‘bought’ the story. But the dynamics are helpful in showing us how to rewrite our own story for maximum positive effect.

We can see the power of sharing our story, telling it over and over again, to the exclusion of all else.

We can feel the impact of embellishing itgiving it lots of detail, emotion and intensity.

We can see the effects of taking action, based on a belief.

And we can clearly see the impact on our health, outlook and happiness if we get sucked into a story full of fear, doom and drama, rather than one filled with positivity and joie de vivre.

Make this the story of your life…

This shows us how to feed our own story for the kind of life and world we want. We must share our ideas, values and vision with others, focusing only on the good things we wish to create. We must imagine and envision the details, feel the emotions we will feel when it becomes a reality, and pre-live that reality on as many levels as we can (emotionally, visually and sensually). Emotions that we might wish to ‘pre-feel’ could include a sense of peace, contentment, happiness, fulfillment, joy, excitement and connectedness.

Finally—perhaps the most powerful piece of all, in terms of attracting what we want—we must be grateful now for the future realization of our vision, ahead of it being a physical 3D reality. As neuroscientist Dr Joe Dispenza reminds us, “Gratitude is the ultimate form of receivership.”

Even if you don’t yet believe in the power of you, you can change your narrative to reflect faith in self, choosing to trust in the power of you and living your life from that place. That’s a story worth sharing with others—and one I'd like to read—because we all love stories with a happy ending.

Over to you! How will you re-write your story? What new narrative will you choose?

  • The Narrative can be very Powerful. Yours always is, Olga. I recall being a pretty nineteen-year-old, holidaying with a cousin and his family in Madrid, prior to moving on to Paris for an audition at the globally renowned cabaret venue, the Moulin Rouge. Back then life seemed mine for the taking until my cousin, Jim, remarked “Remember, Dee, in life there will always be someone prettier, cleverer, and more talented than you.” I don’t recall anything else he said but this stuck – I DID remember until you changed my narrative, Olga. Only sad it took so long. Dee xx
