I was at an event in Brighton the other day with Prem Rawat, an individual who travels around the world talking about the possibility of personal peace.
Now I confess I only went to support my friend who to me has been a rock as I learn about me but I support making the world a kinder place one person at a time.
I have a habit, in a room full of people, of listening to those around me as well as listening to the speaker. I watched them interact remotely with him.
I saw people laughing and then stopping because they thought they shouldn’t, even nod and agree with confused looks on their faces.
Prem Rawat told a story but within that story was a message. One of the quotes he used was ‘monkey see, monkey do’. Which was exactly what I suspect he was observing the audience doing.
I find him extremely inspirational but as his message says, I have never been one that felt the need to follow the crowd or write the same sentence as everyone else.
He talked about storytelling and how as youngsters we learn to make things up to get ourselves out of trouble. Maybe that’s where my storytelling became who I am now. I was always a terrible liar; so I found it easier just own up to it, tell the truth.
Storytelling is an important part of my work as a hypnotherapist helping others to unravel their true story within them through pages, maybe even chapters of their lives.
Are you ready to become your own storyteller? Are you ready to tell your story no holds barred?
