Understanding this concept has had such a profound impact on me - the realisation that we are not our thoughts but an observer of our thoughts is so SO powerful. Being able to distinguish between the voices of my head (ie. inner critic) and heart (ie. intuition) has helped me let go of emotional eating and anxiety, cultivate trust in my intuition and increased my self awareness by about a million percent.
Of course sometimes I get caught up with what my inner critic says to me - it's almost impossible not to! But the more I practice bringing my awareness to this voice, the easier it is for me to let go those limiting thoughts.
Teaching this awareness and understanding of the inner critic is a fundamental part of the work I do with all of my clients. I love sharing this strategy with them because it freaking works - and straight away. Overwhelming stress becomes manageable, anxiety is softened, blocks are released, as they plug into the inner peace they've been craving for so long.
I'm so excited to be sharing this video with you today, so without further ado...
Tell me - what triggers your inner critic to pipe up?
When we're aware of our triggers, we can start to see them as opportunities instead of stressful situations. Countless times a day you'll be given these opportunities to watch as your inner critic does it's thing. See each time as a gentle nudge to come back - into your body and into connection with your heart. Here's a post I wrote on How to Tell the Difference Between Your Inner Critic and your Intuition.
As always, I love to hear your thoughts - please share away in the comments.
Lots of love,
