Abstract

The creation of a fairy tale for someone we care about, based on part of their life story is a loving act. The process brings story into the home as part of everyday life. Tagging along is a sense of comfort and well-being. The key to this process is simple. Let go of control. Not easy you say. The mind is king in our culture. The creation of fairy tale makes way for the queen of hearts. The mind has become quite a bully and overrides the heart over and over again. A fairy tale creation for someone can release what the mind has blocked in a way the heart can hear. Love is not a thought. Let us connect to an ancient, timeless love to acknowledge another’s joy or transform another’s pain. When someone comes to me for a request for a fairy tale, it is usually to be a surprise. There was to be a dinner celebrating the 45th birthday of Alan’s wife. I interviewed him and his wife’s mother. When I am ready to create the story, I review it once and then throw it away. I let thought slip into the subconscious to allow for a fuller truth to be revealed. I let go of control. The fairy tale is always based in the natural world. I have chosen the following story as an example because when a mountain appeared I remember saying, ‘But she isn’t a mountain!’ Hush … wait and see.
