Inspirational Storyteller, Speaker, Best-selling Author and Coach, Nina Kelly Shares Her Thoughts About Where Gratitude Begins

storytelling

Inspiring storyteller, writer and speaker, Dr. Nina Kelly traces the feeling of gratitude back to the first sense of aware connectedness shared by humanity and recognizes that sense is passed on through cultural and spiritual rituals as well as through all art forms.

New Orleans, LA – April 19, 2019 – Dr. Nina M. Kelly, Inspirational Storyteller, Coach, Author and Co-Author of The Big Question with Larry King, and Success Mastery and Success Breakthrough with Jack Canfield, recently posted a new article on her website entitled, “Where Gratitude Begins.” Dr. Kelly connects gratitude with the need of the collective unconscious to express itself in stories.

Dr. Kelly states, “I believe that gratitude begins with story.” She elaborates further, “I also believe that story begins with connection. That connection begins with experiences. For instance, I experience myself. I experience others. I experience something going on around me that involves other beings. These things that happen make me smile, laugh, cry, shout, scream. Then I experience something warm inside that makes me want more of those things that make me smile, laugh, cry, shout, scream.” Dr. Kelly emphasizes, “I feel that can only be described as appreciation, thankfulness, gratitude for each and every experience that has caused me to feel such a range of emotions.”

According to Dr. Kelly, “Each experience is a story. A story I can retell and conjure up the same feeling I did as it happened.” She says, “Carl Jung has written that, “the collective unconscious contains the whole spiritual heritage of mankind’s evolution, born anew in the brain structure of every individual.” I believe it is that collective unconscious that allows us to connect, to become aware, to have shared experiences, to create stories and to feel a deep sense of gratitude.” “To take this one step further,” writes Dr. Kelly, “ I believe that story is a form that encompasses all that exists under the celestial sky and brings light to the idea that we are all connected beneath an umbrella of unconsciousness. And, that unconsciousness requires a voice, a venue of expression, hence the importance of story.”

As Dr. Kelly points out, it is her belief that, “This invisible shared human experience is itself cause for gratitude.” She continues adding, “Our shared human experiences are told in the form of cultural and spiritual rituals which are story patterns passed down from generation to generation. Our experiences are also told through painting, dance, song, theater. The arts hold the eternal space for story. Artists, or those individuals who actively, consciously seek a deeper understanding of our relationship with this unseen connectivity, brings that understanding to others.” Dr. Kelly states, “The artist refines the ability to communicate with humanity on a grand scale, uniting us more intimately with the universal force.”

Where Gratitude Begins

gratitude

I believe that gratitude begins with story.

I also believe that story begins with connection. That connection begins with experiences. For instance, I experience myself. I experience others. I experience something going on around me that involves other beings. These things that happen makes me smile, laugh, cry, shout, scream. Then I experience something warm inside that makes me want more of those things that make me smile, laugh, cry, shout, scream. I feel that can only be described as appreciation, thankfulness, gratitude for each and every experience that has caused me to feel such a range of emotions.

Our Invisible Connection

Each experience is a story. A story I can retell and conjure up the same feeling I did as it happened. Carl Jung has written that, “the collective unconscious contains the whole spiritual heritage of mankind’s evolution, born anew in the brain structure of every individual.” I believe it is that collective unconscious that allows us to connect, to become aware, to have shared experiences, to create stories and to feel a deep sense of gratitude. To take this one step further, I believe that story is a form that encompasses all that exists under the celestial sky and brings light to the idea that we are all connected beneath an umbrella of unconsciousness. And, that unconsciousness requires a voice, a venue of expression, hence the importance of story.

Passing It On

This invisible shared human experience is itself cause for gratitude. Our shared human experiences are told in the form of cultural and spiritual rituals which are story patterns passed down from generation to generation. Our experiences are also told through painting, dance, song, theater. The arts hold the eternal space for story. Artists, or those individuals who actively, consciously seek a deeper understanding of our relationship with this unseen connectivity, brings that understanding to others. The artist refines the ability to communicate with humanity on a grand scale, uniting us more intimately with the universal force.

Gratitude Has A Pattern

Rituals that are handed down and repeated are actually patterns in the collective unconscious. They are like messengers with the power to teach and heal. They are stories that are necessary to the well-being of humanity. Like these stories that come to us from the past as repeated patterns, gratitude also has a pattern that is propelled forward continuously seeking outlets for expression. The result of gratitude expressed is healing. Can you feel the pattern of gratitude looking to express itself in your life? Can you recognize the patterns that give rise to that sense of gratitude?

I find it helpful and healing to recall moments when I have experienced deep gratitude. And as I continue to grow, I find it effortless to feel gratitude for everything in creation. Even those experiences that some might label ‘bad.’ Ultimately, everything that happens gives rise to something else, a pattern that must be expressed. I love consciously contributing to the passing on of the gratitude pattern.

May you and yours become more deeply aware of the gift of gratitude and share the pattern in your own unique way with all you meet through the course of your days.

A Story Of Gratitude

gratitude

Who doesn’t love a good story?

I don’t know a soul who doesn’t get drawn into a well-told tale. I am so grateful for the stories I listened to carefully while growing up and for the wonder those stories created in me.

I am so grateful for the friends and family members I share my life with now and for the stories we share among ourselves. Stories come about as a result of how moments unfold on our journey through life. Some of those moments are sad, frightening and traumatic. Some are exuberant, joyful and unfathomably precious. Most people have a combination of stories that span from the saddest to the most thrilling of experiences.

Many people keep their stories hidden deep within their being thinking their life experiences won’t matter to others. They don’t feel they are worthy of being heard. These are the dear souls who on their deathbeds are looking for another living soul with whom to share their personal memories. I have discovered that being a receptive listener is a gift, not only to the person telling the story, but to myself as listener. It is a great privilege to be the recipient of such intimate story-telling.

There is so much to be grateful for in our lives.

It’s not the number of gifts we receive during a specific holiday or birthday. Nor is it the number of cards or texts we get in any given day. Finding gratitude in our hearts for the people we encounter daily, those who enrich our lives either on a routine basis, or by surprise is the greatest gift of all.

I so appreciate telling my friends, colleagues and family how grateful I am for their presence in my life. I enjoy times to reminisce with them and recall memories we’ve shared that meant so much to all of us. This time of year brings reflections to all of us. It is an occasion when family and friends come together to share love and life experiences. It is also the time of the year I recall people who have come into my life maybe just for a season. Gratitude finds a permanent place within my heart.

storytelling

Inspiring storyteller, writer and speaker, Dr. Nina Kelly writes about the power that verbally sharing stories has to heal the aching souls of those who are facing death as well as those left behind by loved ones who have crossed over into death.

New Orleans, LA – December 3, 2018 – Dr. Nina M. Kelly, Inspirational Storyteller, Coach, Author and Co-Author of The Big Question with Larry King, and Success Mastery and Success Breakthroughs with Jack Canfield, recently posted a new blog on her website entitled, “Story Lives On,” in which Dr. Kelly talks about how story is inextricably woven into life.

Nina writes, “We humans are weaned on stories.” She continues elaborating, “Parents read stories to their children practically from birth. Parents tell their children stories about their families and what life was like before the child made his or her appearance.” She adds, “What we forget or never become fully aware of is that each individual human being is a story.”

As Nina points out, “Each individual human story is filled from beginning to end with twists and turns, adventure, excitement, thrills, regrets, heartbreaks, loves, sorrows, gains and times of delightful calm.” She states, “Some people leave this earth with their stories all locked up inside them. So many stories go untold.”

Story Lives On

story

We humans are weaned on stories.

Parents read stories to their children practically from birth. They also tell their children stories about their families and what life was like before the child entered into this world, we call life. What we forget or never become fully aware of is that each individual represents a story unto itself.

Every personal story is filled from beginning to end with twists and turns, adventure, excitement, thrills, spills, heartbreaks, loves, losses, gains and times of delightful calm. Some people leave this earth with their stories buried deep within. So many stories go untold.

I appreciated and realized the healing power of story early in my life’s journey.

This awareness to listen and share stories grew into a desire to learn and hear more. Every time I met a new acquaintance, I could hardly wait to hear their personal story, I witnessed more vitality coming from their joy to share what was dear to them. The more I listened the more I came to observe the vibrancy that lived within the story. There existed value in each story waiting to be told as well as the need of those stories to find a listener.

Time has taught me the significance and treasure of stories waiting for the right venue to share.

Stories have a life of their own, waiting patiently for the proper vessel of expression. There are other people, not at the end of their life wanting to give voice to their story. Stories all filled with the passion to help humanity on some conscious and unconscious level. Being able to share one’s story with another living mortal often serves as a vehicle to heal another individual. This sharing allows one the opportunity to voice his or her life’s insights into love and regrets, understandings and sincere sorrows.

It is in those times when death brings its awareness to us that we feel the urgency to give voice to the narrative waiting for expression. The individual that contemplates their departure from this life, awakens fully to the value of expressing that which is silent. Our lives are amazing stories. I have seen so many people imprisoned in the suffering of not finding the opportunity to give voice to their personal storyline. I have witnessed the joy and satisfaction of others relieved and peaceful once they found a receptive listener.

Telling your story is a gift and listening to another person’s story is also a gift.

Being in a position to give and receive such a powerful exchange is extraordinary. This is truly a gift of life. Please share your stories so that they can live on!
