A Transformational Guide to Writing
and Healing the Stories of Our Lives
Are You Ready To Have This Book Transform Your Life?
Have you ever considered writing your life stories but then have stopped yourself because there are things you’d just rather not remember let alone write about?
What if there was a way of returning to those same stories that when you thought of them, you felt empowered rather than disturbed? A way that would transform how you felt about yourself as well as certain people and events from your past?
Are you thinking, I wouldn’t even know where to begin? If so, you needn’t give it another thought. This is what my book is about.
Re-Write Your Life – A Transformational Guide to Writing and Healing the Stories of Our Lives is a unique guided experience that empowers you to let go of old resentments, hurts and regrets and make peace with your past. As a result you will be become happier, have more peace in your life, and will, perhaps for the first time, begin to fully accept and appreciate every story you have ever lived.
How do we do this? We do it by re-writing our stories. How many times have we told ourselves a story about something painful that has happened to us and then hung onto that story for years? We haven’t known how to let it go, heal ourselves and move on. What if there is a different way to see the same story – a gentle path that would empower you, liberate you and bring peace and joy to your life today?
All of us have experienced heartbreak, regrets, and sorrow in our life. Yet many people go on to live joyful, creative and fulfilled lives in spite of their history, while others hold onto the pain and are unhappy, frustrated and can’t seem to move forward.
Re-Write Your Life guides you through a profound, yet simple process that offers a gentle way out of that loop – a way that sheds light through self-love, forgiveness and compassion. And it is based on 20 years of teaching this method in my writing workshop: Sacred Stories, Celebrating Your Life Journey as well as in my private psychotherapy practice and literally witnessing thousands of people’s lives transform.
You will be guided to write your stories of gratitude, of forgiveness, or about the times you were stronger than you thought. You will remember significant moves and significant relationships and write about the stories that have shaped your life and brought meaning to it.
Woven throughout the book are many of my own personal life stories such as the time I came out of hospital after another bout of clinical depression – and writing the play Madness, Masks and Miracles to help me let go of a life time of shame for having bi-polar illness. The play is about the madness or the dark night of the soul that we all go through as we take our human walk on earth, the masks we wear to hide the madness lest we be ostracized, criticized, and marginalized, and finally the miracles that let us take off our masks and be our true selves. The writing of that play brought me out of years of shame. If you or anyone you know has a mental illness, you won’t want to miss this story – or any of the inspirational stories by 33 other writers in this book – stories that will stir your heart and inspire you to pick up your pen and write your own stories of transformation, healing and growth.
What if by using this process and transforming your life it helped just one person you know to take that same courageous step and heal their life too? Would it be worth it? By re-writing our stories we give others permission to move beyond their fear and do the same.
That is what inspired me to write this book. When I was finally willing to let go of that which no longer served me and open myself to a process that would free me of the stories I was holding onto, I was able to see the gifts and lessons each person and circumstance had come to teach me. This has been the greatest gift I could ever give to myself and now I extend it to you.
So if you are ready to let go of the past, free up your energy to truly live in today, then please allow me be your guide.
