Do you use this litmus test? If you’re like most people, you invariably do because it reflects how most of us were taught our beliefs.
But you should stop using the wrong one and start telling stories according to a new litmus test that will serve you much better.
You Already Know You’re a Born Storyteller and Mother Goose Has Nothing On You
As a reader of this site, I assume I don’t need to convince you that you tell stories about every single person, place, thing, and experience you encounter in your life. Your stories are subjective, determined solely by you. And your stories are the determiner of whether any person, place, thing, or experience is “good” or “bad” (or anything in-between).
Telling better-feeling, believable stories is the cornerstone of making sure your beliefs remain aligned with your desires. Telling the best-feeling, believable stories you can muster about every single thing you experience is a must if you wish to exert your influence over your material world and your life, if you wish to be the most powerful deliberate creator you desire.
Most People Are a Prisoner of Their Habitual Stories, Many of Which Do Not Align Them with Their Desires
Yet most people go through their lives telling the stories they were taught, regardless of whether or not those stories serve them. Regardless of whether or not their stories help align their beliefs with their desires, most people act as if the stories they are telling are not subjective and are simply “telling it like it is”. When, instead, the stories they are telling themselves can be changed any time someone wishes to create stories that serve her and align her with her desires (instead of reinforcing beliefs that are out of alignment with her desires).
Thus, most people, never realize that they are not actually ever “telling it like it is” and, instead, are always and without fail “telling it how they’re choosing to tell it”.
Here is the 100% Most Common, and Most Incorrect, Litmus Test People Use for Their Stories
And here is the wrong litmus test, the one most people use when they are telling stories (which we all do, by the way, every moment of every day):
“Is this the story everyone (or anyone) else would tell about it?”
Do you doubt me? Try asking a person who just told a “bad” story about something to consider an alternative, slightly-better-feeling, yet still believable, story. You’ll usually hear: “But that is bad; that’s the way it is and anyone else would agree.”
If You Care That Your Story is a Different One Than Most Would Tell, You’re Using the Wrong Litmus Test
For example, what if someone catches her adolescent daughter smoking pot? Is there a law that says she must tell a story like:
“This is awful and it is 100% bad. This means that my daughter is at great risk, I am a failure as a parent, and very bad things are undoubtedly on the horizon.”
I would never suggest that someone could realistically be glad about such a thing. Hence my continual stressing that our better-feeling stories be believable. Yet is there some rule against a story like:
“I am not pleased about this. I am not happy and my preference is that it wouldn’t have happened. Yet I can also choose to refrain from calling this 100% bad because I have had plenty of experiences where something which felt horrible when it happened turned out to be a blessing in the long run. I am not, therefore, going to definitively label this as ‘bad’ and, instead, will choose to give it no value. And, while I do not have the current perspective to know how this might turn out to be just what we all needed to happen, I will also choose be honest with myself by continuing to admit that it is, indeed, undesirable.”
A story like that, combined with appropriate consequences, sure feels 100% better than the first one. And it’s also entirely believable – you’re not lying to yourself, nor invalidating how you truly feel about the situation.
And what you’re doing with a better-feeling, believable story like that one is leave you and your daughter (and anyone else involved) open to the quantum field making good use of the circumstances to facilitate the manifestation of your (and others’) desires. In the manner that the quantum field most often operates – in completely unexpected ways.
Here is the Litmus Test a Leading-Edge Creator Like You Should Use for Your Stories
So what if “everyone else” would tell the bad-feeling story that definitively labels something “bad”? That is not the litmus test a leading-edge creator like you should use.
Your litmus test should be: “Is this story serving me and aligning me with my desires?”
That is the only consideration you need to use when deciding what story to tell, or whether to tell any story at all. If you feel a compulsion to label something “bad” because it seems like you’re just “telling it like it is” or it’s the story everyone else would tell, remind yourself that you’re a leading-edge creator and you will no longer allow yourself to be controlled, nor confined, by limiting beliefs. And, in those circumstances, simply step back, admit that your situation is undesirable and not to your liking, and make a conscious choice to tell no story at all about it (to give it no definitive label of “good” nor “bad”).
If your story isn’t serving you, if it’s not aligning your beliefs with your desires, don’t tell it. Period. No exceptions.
