beautiful-blur-buildings-567451

This guide will help you express the experience of your life’s journey and spiritual awakening in a simple, yet powerful manner.

WHY?

One of the most exciting and interesting ways to share your message is to give a personal testimony. Your testimony is the basis of your experience… It’s your story, your firsthand account of how your life has unfolded. Your testimony has authority. There may be many questions in life that you aren’t able to answer, but you are indeed the authority on your own story.

WHAT?

At the end of this guide, you should understand the importance of your story and be able to confidently share it with others – it is your story that informs your purpose in life.

HOW?

You’ll achieve this goal by:

  • Identifying the appropriate points that need to be included in your personal story.
  • Write out your testimony a number of times to really get clear on its true value.
  • Read your testimony to another person; have a friend listen to your story – ask them to be your sacred witness.
  • This process allows your spirit to shine a light on the true essence of your story, which in turn informs your purpose.

These are the basic characteristics of a personal testimony:

YOUR STORY GIVES YOU AN INNER AUTHORITY

As I mentioned you won’t be able to answer everyone’s questions in life; however, you are the authority in the area of your own powerful experiences and how you have overcome adversity. Which led you to find your version of Hope, Joy, and Success in your own life.

YOUR STORY HAS THE POWER TO COMMUNICATE

It reaches out and expresses to people the quality of your spirit and life. You are not talking merely in academic terms, you are speaking about your life with which you are 100% familiar. Again, you are simply sharing with others what you have experienced.

YOUR STORY CREATES CONNECTION AND RELATIBLITY

As you talk about your experiences people begin to relate because their lives feel similar to yours and are seeking to understand the need for change in their own life, (just like your life taught you)
