Note to reader: I am using this space and place to post parts of a new slip-fiction novel series I am working on, Left Brain Right, the story of a young girl who hears voices. Left-Brain excerpts will be from her care-takers’ point of view or the point of view of the friends and family around her, while right-brain excerpts will describe how she sees the situation. I will not be posting the whole story, but I will be posting practical tips when dealing with someone, or one’s own self, as they are going through traumatic, or not so traumatic, experiences.

How today’s story excerpt can help you:
Theme: Within your heart there is a kingdom, and in that kingdom is a well. Some call it your medicine, others call it your power. Whatever it is called, it is yours and it is the one thing no one can take away from you.
In today’s story excerpt, our main character Michelle, goes into her third meditation session where her Thunder Being (a type of imaginary friend) is going to start teaching her about where her power really comes from and who is in control of that power.
Meditation Session 3
Spirit Time on September 14th
After the last two meditation sessions,
I was unsure if I wanted to do more,
but just before the designated time
I heard a voice:
“Try once more.”
I can’t say how or why,
I trusted it what it said,
so I headed to the mediation room.
Cue the floating flute music.
Dim lights already in check.
Eyes closed, down into the darkness
Yes, back to the mountain,
yes the same dojo,
the night fiery, however,
was missing though.
My Thunder Being sat cross legged,
so I sat down facing him.
I mirrored his position
and let him begin.
He grabbed my hand,
and his yellow eyes
started directly into mine.
Hand on his heart, eyes closed he said,
“within here.” Tapping against his chest,
“there is a kingdom
and within that kingdom
there is a well.”
Eyes open once more he continued,
“Some call this medicine,
others call it your power.
It is yours.
No one can take it.
It’s 100% in your control,
and yet, you’ve let too much shit
into your kingdom.
