245 Reframe Your Narrative – Your Life – Heslin


Frame, Reframe And Own Your Narrative

A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.
~ Mahatma Ghandi

Rachel S. Heslin remains immersed in the study of narrative psychology for over 35 years. Her father, a clinical psychologist, taught his children his craft such that Rachel was first introduced to Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) concepts when she was nine years old, and she has been performing PartsWork and refining her reframing skills since the age of 11. Her article on growing up in this type of environment appeared in the official Milton H. Erickson Foundation newsletter. She has also facilitated training for the Southern California Society for Ericksonian Psychotherapy and Hypnosis (SCSEPH), helping teach therapists how to incorporate storytelling techniques into a clinical setting.

Her work through her company, The Fullness of Your Power, helps people understand and embrace all parts of their life narrative so they can live life deeper, more productive, and more fulfilling lives.

This exciting interview addresses the significance of more evolved self-understanding, developing a personal narrative within the context of your larger, transcendent mission – your contribution – in this life.

Her Works

“I love to discuss my current focus on normalizing supposedly ‘negative’ experiences such as anger, self-sabotage, and having a ‘victim mentality’ by identifying the purpose that each of these experiences has in our lives.” And listener-colleagues in this CBJ interview, she takes us right down to the sidewalk on the Main Streets of our lives. She’s a must listen!

Rachel is currently the author of two books: Navigating Life: 8 Different Strategies to Guide Your Way, and Rituals of Release: How to Make Room for Your New Life, linked below.

Rituals of Release is the first book of her Making Peace with Your Past series. Upcoming books in the series include  The Power of Self-Forgiveness, and Deeper Sorrow, Greater Joy: Healing Through Grief

Our Next CoreBrain Journal Episode

246 Dr. Russell Jaffe received his BS, MD, and Ph.D. from the Boston University School of Medicine in 1972. He completed residency training in clinical chemistry at the National Institutes of Health (1973 – 1976), remaining on the permanent senior staff until 1979. He is board certified in Clinical Pathology and Chemical Pathology. In this CBJ/246, his second interview at CBJ [155], we discuss a variety of issues regarding measuring immunity in relation to brain function. Yes, you got it – immunity matters with brain function, and Dr. Jaffe is a global expert on that essential connection.

As a physician and scientist who aspired to be comprehensive, objective, empiric and experiential, Dr. Jaffe started his career searching for deeper understanding, wisdom, evidence, and insight into mechanisms of health. Through intense curiosity and learned skepticism, Dr. Jaffe sought to debunk the best-known advocates of a variety of health promotion and healing systems. What started as a journey to disprove holistic forms of care became a rich educational experience that transformed Dr. Jaffe into a student and then a researcher in such areas a Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, active meditation, homeopathy, and manipulative arts.

His transformation provides principles for your own.

Honored as an International Scientist of 2003 by the IBC, Oxford, England, the UK for his lifetime contributions to clinical medicine, biochemistry, immunology, methodology, and integrative health policy, Dr. Jaffe is appreciative of the recognition of his peers. He currently serves on the American Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology and coordinates its certification training program. America’s Top Physicians 2005, Who’s Who in America; Who’s Who in Medicine and Science; Who’s Who in Business and Engineering all have included him in recognition of his contributions to science and community.

Dr. Jaffe is the recipient of the Merck, Sharp & Dohm Excellence in Research Award, the J.D. Lane Award, and the U.S.P.H.S. Meritorious Service Award. He teaches and lectures widely on nutritional immunology and treatment guidelines for chronic autoimmune and immune dysfunction syndromes and has helped elucidate the causes and consequences of immune defense and repair functions in health and disease.
