The Story You Need To Tell | Sandra Marinella

It’s a big deal to share what your journey has been like. It’s not easy to share the difficult moments you’ve had to make you the person you’ve become.

I should know—it took me six months to get over myself, publish my book, and share it with the world! Despite all of my personal growth work, and even though I felt my connection to Source very deeply, I was still afraid to move forward with the next big step in sharing my story with others.

Sandra Marinella, author of The Story You Need to Tell: Writing to Heal from Trauma, Illness, or Loss, joins me in this episode for a conversation about the story you need to tell. She’s a writing teacher of thousands of students and an author from Chandler, Arizona, and her articles have appeared in The English Journal, Seventeen, Wellbeing Journal, Psychology Today’s blog, and more.

During her battle with cancer, Sandra discovered that writing about her experiences was therapeutic for her. Today, she teaches veterans and cancer patients at Mayo Clinic how to write and share their amazing journeys. She wrote the book The Story You Need to Tell: Writing to Heal from Trauma, Illness, or Loss.

I asked Sandra to come on The Soul Frequency Show because of her incredible, scientifically proven work. The stories that we carry with us are what carry us through life, and that’s what this episode is all about.

Sandra talk and about what we can learn about our own fears, how to confront them and overcome them through writing, and how journaling can heal the traumatic experiences we’ve had in life.  Ready to write? Listen to this episode!
