Making Friends with Your Inner Critic

We all have an inner critic.  I don’t care how well adjusted you are or how much inner work you’ve done.  You may go weeks or even months without hearing from her but one day, something happens and BAM!  There it is.  That old voice speaks up.  You know the one.  That voice that never seems to be satisfied no matter what you do or how you do it.

She burrows in little by little and if left unchecked she can take over your whole life.  But there is a way to get on her good side. Continue reading “Making Friends with Your Inner Critic”

HOW TO TELL IF YOU ARE EMPOWERED

What does an empowered woman look like?  In my search to find the answer, I came across many web-sites, books, blogs and magazines.  All dedicated to empowering women.  Why is this such a huge topic?

The dictionary defines power as “the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events”. The example shown was “the idea that men should have power over women”.

And isn’t that it?  The idea that men should have power over women.  That idea has been around for centuries.  And because it was such a prevalent idea for such a long time, women came to believe they don’t have power.  Society adopted this idea as truth and although it’s been called into question repeatedly, the actual truth never really took hold.  Until now, that is.  Continue reading “HOW TO TELL IF YOU ARE EMPOWERED”

NEW PERSPECTIVE ON BEING A GODDESS

Forty-something woman:  Well if you’re old, what does that make me?  I’m ancient.

I, having recently turned sixty-something, naturally had to chime in.  “Well if you’re ancient, what does that make me?”  After a second’s hesitation, the answer came back, “You’re a Goddess!” Continue reading “NEW PERSPECTIVE ON BEING A GODDESS”

HOW TO FACE YOUR DEEPEST FEAR

You may be familiar with this quote from Marianne Williamson:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure… Your playing small does not serve the world…”

I speak with many women who don’t trust themselves when it comes to making a decision regardless of the subject.  Since I used to be there myself, I fully understand where they’re coming from.  It can be a scary thing to put yourself out there and make a choice that might be unacceptable to someone else.  What many of these women don’t think about is that their idea may just have some merit.  And if it’s not the right one for the project at hand, it could be a learning experience for them.

HOW WE GIVE AWAY OUR POWER WITHOUT REALIZING IT

Have you ever wondered why people treat you the way they do?  Do your kids ignore your attempts to get them to do chores?  Does your boss consistently pass you over for promotions?  Do you often resent having to do for everyone else?

Many of us, are not aware of the words we use or the body language we display at times.  Without realizing it we may be telling the world that we don’t have the confidence in ourselves to stand up and be counted. Continue reading “HOW WE GIVE AWAY OUR POWER WITHOUT REALIZING IT”
