Have you ever had voices in your own head talk smack to you? Voices that judge, criticize, demean, doubt and disturb you?
You are not alone!
A Course in Miracles says that the ego speaks first and loudest, so if you are listening to the fear, shame and doubt voices, it will be difficult to hear your small, inner voice–the one that wants you to be happy and successful in life.
As you have a look within to discover your greatness, you may encounter some shadowy-looking characters. Although they are not “real” per se, they take on a life of their own, and can create Self-Sabotage (working against your own Success).
According to Caroline Myss, author and medical intuitive, human beings have four survival archetypes (orphan, prostitute, child, and saboteur) that help us get our needs met. When in balance, they can serve us well, alerting us to dangerous liaisons or poor decisions. But more often than not, one or more of the critical voices in your head drowns out the one voice that knows where you are meant to go. We will focus on the saboteur and it’s various voices so that you can recognize the difference between the voices in your head.
Let’s look at two today: The Bully and The Judge.
This voice is dominating and will tell you that you are not good enough and that you can’t. If you believe you have limits, you will never actualize your potential, and as Henry Ford said, “whether you think you can or can’t, you are right.”
How to handle: Drop I can’t from your vocabulary and ask, What is possible? Claim what you want by saying I Will, I Am. Affirm: I can do anything I set my mind and heart to.
The “Judge” is divided into two categories: how you judge yourself and how you judge your circumstances.
Judging Yourself – You may have the tendency to feel like you’re not enough and that you are not doing enough.
Judging Circumstances – When you judge your circumstances heavily, it becomes your main source of anxiety. Your peace of mind is disturbed when you can’t accept circumstances because you’re too busy judging them or waiting for the “perfect” situation to arise.
How to handle: Bring more acceptance into your thinking, ask “What acceptance or allowance can I be here?”
Affirm: Everything is unfolding in divine right timing.
The Bully and Judge in your head are doing the job you hired them to do. But sometimes, they need to be FIRED !
