How To Stop Self Criticism Dead In It's Tracks

Do you believe in synchronicity?

I do.

I believe the universe is always speaking to us, gently communicating whatever it is we need to know, see, experience, and feel in that particular moment. There are no accidents or coincidences. 

One of the biggest reasons we are here  is to learn unconditional love for all beings, including ourselves. This is actually the bulk of what my new book, Hello Goddess! A Woman's Guide to Radiant Health, Vitality, and Unshakeable Confidence is about. Radical self love. 

A friend of mine recommended a book to me last week called You Can Heal Your Life, by Louise Hay. I knew immediately I needed to read it, because I had just asked God for help with changing thought patterns. One of the first messages Louise Hay imparts is that loving the self means never ever criticizing ourselves for anything.

 

Woa. 

Here I was thinking I had this whole self love thing locked down. 


 I decided for one week I would observe how often I criticize myself. It turns out, the self criticism is over flowing. I imagine it is so with you too.


It's one thing to be introspective. It's another thing entirely to be critical. So this week, I challenge you to casually observe how often you criticize yourself. Pay attention to your own self ridicule. And every time you have one of these thoughts, place your hand on your heart and just say 'I love you.' It might feel weird at first, but keep doing it. 


I hope you find this as life changing as it has been for me!
