Stories of the Psyche
Since times immemorial stories have been told to penetrate deeper into the boundless, unfathomable mysteries of being alive. The first stories told around the fire were perhaps accounts of shamans who just returned from journeying into non-ordinary realities, or dreams people shared with each other. These stories were not pieces of "fiction," rather descriptions of non-physical and inner realities.
Thus stories are not to be treated as mere entertainment, but as blueprints for life itself, as maps for the psyche to navigate the human experience..
Learning from ancient storytelling traditions as well as archetypal psychology I came to understand that stories which live within us (consciously or unconsciously) determine the life we live on the outside.
Therapeutic storytelling is like conducting archaeology into the layers of the psyche:
- On the surface we can find the stories which we tell ourselves every day. This inner narrative determines whether we see ourselves as the victim or the hero of our own story, whether we feel like we are at the beginning of an adventure or stuck at some dead-end. If we discover that we maintain a predominantly negative inner talk, with various cognitive and hypnotherapeutic techniques we can change that, like we would be changing the programming of a computer.
- On a deeper level we find our personal and karmic history. The more we know about that, the better we understand our own personal mission (existential program) and deepest longing. Past life regression and future life progression sessions can help us to see the patterns more clearly.
- On the deepest level, we can discover our most personal archetype, the very force which moves our soul. If we align with that, it means we are walking our highest possible path.
The more we become aware of the stories which live inside of us, the better we can govern the forces which determine our lives.
