Stories and What They Can Show About Our everyday life
I have been taking care of a brand new creative project. A great deal of energy and enthusiasm being spent. A lot of productive time making something totally new. Bouncing my ideas away from others in a coaching group. But whenever I set about a whole new journey of making, I’ve found myself becoming angry.
Each and every this happen? What is this anger about? What’s going on?
My mentor and that i were discussing this. She wondered aloud this thought: “It feels like the tender spots are where you stand angry”… yeah. Very tender. The anger is telling me something.
Discovering that it is sometimes complicated to keep a job using anger throughout, I wanted to find a way to function “through” or “around” the anger. So, I distract myself with painting, stories, dancing… something creative, but more mundane plus a bit mindless. This creative energy frees up my thoughts so that I can “trick” my anger into thinking I am busy with things.
While i do that I call it “spinning”. Spinning jogs my memory in the stories from the spinning wheel where I can get busy creating (much like the wool around the wheel). This opens the door to metaphor and takes me away from my have to “control” a project.
After i began drawing this picture… of a spinning wheel… I figured of “turning straw to gold”. I had been reminded again from the story of Rumpelstilskin. You understand, normally the one… the millers daughter, the dad says “she can spin straw into gold” to the king… and the king desires to understand this… and if she cannot, she will go to death… ? Then, a bizarre little man appears. He tells her the guy can spin straw into gold… however it will attend an amount to her.
I ran across the storyplot and read several versions of computer. It resonated beside me. However, while i usually do, I attempted to logically “organize” the tale. This caused me to get more frustrated, because i had not been seeing or feeling what this story was trying to let me know.
And so i returned to my “dream capture” work. I read the story as if it were a fantasy I needed had. Then, I did the subsequent:
Listed out all of the characters
Listed the “key words” inside the story that resonated with me
Re-read each word and wrote what that word meat if you ask me in my unique circumstances
After which… I began to see what are the story was telling me. Can do for you I came across
The little man (Rumplestilskin)=anger/creative fire/naming
The miller’s daughter=rest/creativity/giving
Spnning wheel=creating/spinning/asking for help
The baby=creation (project, artwork… )
While each one of these “characters” comes with an independent role, Every one of the characters create one “psyche” to me. We have all of those qualities within us.
To create something, it will take much energy… and far rest can also be needed. We’ve got to give of ourselves and ask for help.
Ultimately, a baby exists and we’ll not stop. It can be our “creation” and we are surprised about that which you make. Also, the required steps to have there.
What did I learn?
That story resonates with me at night. Also, this story will repeat itself over and over while i carry on and create, rest, other people and finished a project. Despite the fact that Rumpelstilskin stomps himself in the ground at the end of the storyline, that little man will probably be back… and then time, I will know his name.
