The Power of Mindful ReflectionApr 11, 2023
Recently, as I focused on overcoming inner criticism through mindful reflection, I’ve noticed that emotions such as guilt and shame, which stem from feeling tough on myself and undermine my self-confidence and self-worth, tend to snowball and consume more bandwidth than I care to admit. Can you relate to experiencing such contracted emotions?
However, utilizing the tools I teach, I recognized that this state of being sabotaged my joy and peace of living here and now. It was also creating a feeling of overwhelm and exhausted in my life.
Carrying all these lower-feeling emotions felt burdensome.
As the feeling persisted, I knew it was time to take a sacred pause and mindfully explore the deep emotions that I was experiencing.
By allowing myself to mindfully process these complex emotions with compassion, kindness, and curiosity, I could see what triggered these thoughts and feelings.
I realized that coming out of my comfort zone and exploring new, unfamiliar, and uncertain experiences triggered a feeling of not feeling safe and secure.
That set me on the trajectory of a series of inner critical thoughts and feelings- like a snowball picking up speed and size.
By taking that moment to rest in reflection and going within to observe with love and kindness, I allowed those feelings to be seen, processed and then moved out.
This week, let’s kick our inner critics to the curb and make room for some self-love and compassion! As we focus on overcoming inner criticism through mindful reflection, I challenge you to take notice of those moments when your inner voice gets a little too harsh. Instead of letting those negative emotions consume you, take a moment to pause, breathe, and process those feelings with kindness and love. Trust me, your higher self will thank you for it!
Your higher self will thank you for caring!
