Last month I blogged about Emotional Intelligence and how this can change your relationships and change your life. After referring to the to infamous book written by Daniel Goleman, I have since realised that the one thing that was lacking in the book was heart, raw emotion and story telling. While the concepts ring true it was difficult to stay connected and re-read the book from start to finish.
What I have discovered is the power of story telling. Especially the insight gained when you share your own life journey, written in the third person. A powerful, powerful process. As you write, read and share the experiences that miraculously find themselves on a page, you re-live the emotions connected to those experiences. You realise what you have been holding on to, the reason why you behave in a certain way and most importantly what you have learnt and the gifts you can share with the world, both at home and in your vocation.
In my opinion, story is a key step in finding your purpose in life and discovering who you were born to be. Facilitated by Elizabeth Ellames, the writing and sharing of your personal hero’s journey is transformational and rewards you with a higher level of emotional intelligence.

As I come to the completion of writing and sharing my story, I take a deep breath in and hold the clear intention to let go of all that no longer serves me, on every level. I accept, with grace and with no desire to change things, all that has happened, is happening and is yet to happen. In honour and respect of my hero’s journey, I experience unconditional love and forgiveness and recognise my gifts and true value.
What is it that you can accept and let go of in your story?

One thought on “Letting Go…”
You are such a wonderful example of the Hero’s Journey Courtney. Well done for going all the way and back. Yes indeed it is transformational and there is no way of controlling the process… It is sound and organic endevour, the perfect exploration for anyone I a true leadership role. It is also a fine example of how the “human spirit” is ever present in our life. It may step aside for while until we get back on path, but it never leaves, because it is victorious by nature and will re-enter when we are ready, willing and fully avalible to lead.
Thanks again Courtney…
