In Unit #8 we are going to collapse the story. What does this mean? It is a recognition of the fact that our story is in large part a fabrication — a story we have made up. This is especially true if the original story that has repeatedly been acted out in all your relationships was formed during early childhood.
Sorry about this. In all likelihood, you are very attached to your story, and it feels very real to you. You may be angry at me for saying that much of it is a fabrication, but, please, stay with me on this and let me show you what I mean.
I am going to show you on video how a story gets formed — to see how much of it is fact and how much is interpretation. What you will see is that, in nearly all victim stories, there are a great many more interpretations than there are facts. That is good, though because it enables us to deconstruct the story by taking away the interpretations. Once we do, the story becomes smaller. The energy field that has held it together, up to now, and has us repeating it over and over in our life begins to collapse. That’s good preparation for the final part of the program — the reframe.
Note: The video illustrates how a young child makes up a story. I do it that way because it is more obvious when you see how children do it. However, adults do just the same but in a more sophisticated way. Even if you have discovered that your issue with this person originates with a childhood wound, stay working on your story with them, at least for now.
After the video, I will ask you to deconstruct your story using a tool called a ‘centrifuge.’
