Whispers from the Earth
Taz Thornton’s book ‘Whispers from the Earth’s not big but is jam packed with stories and not just any stories but ones she has channelled from the ancestors, from the bones of the earth which she is part of and the spirits of those she works with. These are stories to read to yourself and to read out loud to others, for they are stories that are crying out to be heard, to be listened to and to pass on their meaning to those who need to hear them.
Ms Thornton also shares with us guidance as to how to channel our own stories, ones that come from the spirits we work with and from our own ancestors. Whilst her stories are a gift in their own rite, a greater gift is the sharing of how we can become our own storyweavers and in doing so find stories of our own.
I am in no way a story teller or storyweaver but inspired by the guidance given in Whispers from the Earth and by the stories contained therein I have had a go at it myself 🙂 While I am nowhere near Ms Thornton’s standard it was far easier than I expected, I enjoyed doing it and am sure I will do so again. I’m telling you no more than this for now. If you’d like to learn how to channel your own stories the advice in the book is clear and easy to follow.
