Healing Your Whisper Stories By Tapping into Creative Healing with Yolanda Grier 
Whisper stories are those experiences that we have but never share with anyone. They might be about a time when we were bullied, assaulted or something that happened in the past that we regret and need to let go of. Your whisper story doesn’t have to be publicized or written for publication for you to heal. Just getting it out will reduce its power and impact by helping you to see it differently because it doesn’t tell the truth about who you really are. Telling your story in a creative is the way to heal and reframe your narrative, release the burden from your shoulders and move on with your life. If the experience remains inside you, you are not going to live up to your potential because of the pain; hence it’s worth investigating what it is and how to get out of it. 
 
Join the conversation with Yolanda Grier, an artist, author, instructor, as she shares her whisper stories, how they impacted her life, and how she overcame them through creative art journaling. Yolanda is a creative healer and the host of The Creative Healing With Yolanda podcast. She creates a space for healing and fun through creativity by combining words, images, and color. Her mission is to teach others how to thrive through creativity, painting, journals, and OOAK makings.
