I’d like to introduce you to your inner critic. Actually, you’ve known each other for some time now. For so long in fact, that you might have begun to think that your inner critic is in fact, you. Let me explain.
You know that voice you hear inside your head that says things like…
“I’m not good enough for him/her”
“If I change XYZ in my life, then I’ll be happy”
“These jeans make me look enormous”
“Nothing I have to give is worth anything”
“I should have bought a house/got engaged/ saved more money by now”
“I won’t try that – I’m just going to fail anyway”
“I’ll always be in debt/overweight/a failure, so I’d better get used to it”
That voice gorgeous, is not you.
How do I know this? Because you are amazing! You are a child of God and you are limitless, priceless, worthy, beautiful and radiant. And you’re exactly where you’re meant to be.
That voice you hear? She’s just your inner critic.
She developed in your psyche when you were a child, to keep you safe and protected, but you’re a beautiful, graceful, grown-up woman now and you can look after yourself.
The problem is, she’s totally misguided and not convinced – she still wants you in your comfort zone, without pushing any boundaries or going after your best life. But there’s no fun to be had there, is there?
Every time you hear your inner critic creep in, gently remind her that you appreciate her input, but you’re here to radiate life – not resist it. Send her off on a holiday somewhere, visualise her floating away, breathe deeply into your belly and repeat after me…
I AM WORTHY. I AM FREE. I AM LOVED. I AM RADIANT.
Because, you are.
