Embrace your Sacred Story
“WE THINK WE TELL STORIES, BUT STORIES OFTEN TELL US: TELL US TO LOVE OR HATE, TO SEE OR BE SEEN. OFTEN, TOO OFTEN, STORIES SADDLE US, RIDE US, WHIP US ONWARD, TELL US WHAT TO DO, AND WE DO IT WITHOUT QUESTIONING. THE TASK OF LEARNING TO BE FREE REQUIRES LEARNING TO HEAR THEM, TO QUESTION THEM, TO PAUSE AND HEAR SILENCE, TO NAME THEM, AND THEN BECOME A STORY-TELLER.”
What has called you here my Sacred Soul Sister?
Is the Muse knocking on the door of your soul, begging to be seen and heard?
Is it a longing that resides deep in your bones, you know you are a storyteller, but cannot get your words to the paper?
You can feel the story lingering just under the surface and need sacred space and time and perhaps some guidance to allow it to surface?
Are you feeling uninspired, uncertain or unworthy; powerless, blocked or lonely on your creative journey?
Or perhaps you just long to write and share your personal story in a powerful and meaningful way
"THE BUSINESS OF STORIES IS NOT ENCHANTMENT. THE BUSINESS OF STORIES IS NOT ESCAPE. THE BUSINESS OF STORIES IS WAKING UP"
What is a Sacred Story?
When you hear the term sacred story we tend to instantly think of ancient stories most likely in some sort of a biblical sense, but in reality we decide for ourselves that which we believe to be sacred.
Your sacred story is a gift. A gift that you are giving to the world. It comes from deep inside and has the potential to inspire the collective audience. It comes from the heart and contains wisdom that only you can share.
We are the storytellers of our time and your story is important, it's calling from within to be seen and heard.
Stories create connection and evoke emotion. They live subconsciously and consciously within us. They allow us to paint pictures in the minds of our audience, to share experiences and dreams and knowledge. Stories are a place where we can alchemize our hard to tell experiences into medicine for others while healing ourselves.
Shannon Kelly is the creator and editor of the Vintage Gypsy Magazine. She guides women to ditch their fears, guilt and shame, to share their stories and live life unapologetically inspired by joy and passion.
She is a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. She is a rebel child and a gypsy spirit. She believes in trusting the journey and that our strength as women comes from the bonds of friendship we nurture and the kindred sisterhood we share.
Sharing our stories empowers us all to live a more inspired life, and by doing so, we create positive change within our communities. We can change the world, One story at a time.
"I am a lover of language and they way certain words roll off my tongue. I believe in Magic and creating it through through the alchemy of words.
I love to stir the pot to get to the grit and grime at the bottom, it adds flavour to the stew.
I ache for a good bourbon gently swirling over ice. Sipping slowly to feel the burn, like revisiting old wounds to hear how my own guttural howl feels in my throat.
I yearn to feel every emotion, like lightning coursing through my veins until it finds its ground. For this is where I find surrender and truth and finally peace.
I have always followed my own path, the road less traveled, the hard way it seems was always my right. I do not conform to the rules and I believe my ancestors are cheering me on, walking beside me in my truth. I am a believer in the human spirit and I believe LOVE can save the world.
I am a Badass Warrior Goddess and I believe you are to."
If you have found your way here because you have a story to tell. A story that needs sharing. A story you would like to gift to the universe.
A brave story of truth, overcoming obstacles, or survival at it's finest.
Perhaps your story is of Love and Loss and the trials of life.
Or a grand fiction with ornate characters and underlying messages and lessons to be learned.
If you can feel the storyteller rising within you, begging to be seen and heard, then you have found your way home.
Storytelling is not just about conveying the facts about your life. You want to provide meaning, insight, joy, and guidance, sprinkle it with humor and play, stir in some context and history, and throw in a dash of truth that not everyone is willing to speak out loud. And you want to share this like bread crumbs on the path for those who are following behind you so they may find a clear and direct route through the travails of life that you have already navigated. -Leah Lamb
