Becoming an intuitive storyteller involves caring for our relationship with our inner guidance. I discussed this topic with voice therapist, Anita van der Meer.
In our conversation we explore:
- The importance of discernment when following inner guidance.
- Why we misinterpret intuitive messages, especially when they pertain to things in our personal life.
- The ways that an intuition can “ring true”, or not.

The story I then tell touches on themes of:
- Staying true to ourselves, whatever situation we are in.
- How to listen, and respond, to the deepest intuitive urges we feel.
- How our creativity is not truly for us, but has a wider purpose in the world.
