By now you know that most of your inner critic’s dialog are the “shoulds” of the world; the statements are not truly representative of who-you-really-are. It is foreign energy residing in your system, your aura. Remember that what you think and feel emanates from you out into the cosmos. One of the universal laws is this: like attracts like.
You really are a giant magnet attracting to you events and circumstances that are in alignment with your current set of thoughts and feelings. This is why it is so critical to remove the negative self-talk and replace it with belief statements reflecting your true nature.
When I begin down the road of destructive thinking, I use a tool called Blowing Up A Rose. (See post here). It’s fun, it’s easy and oh so very powerful. See what you think.
Defusing the power of the story allows you to remove the negative internal dialogue and replace it with something that is more current, more who-you-really-are.
P.S. – The Universe certainly has a sense of humor! I hadn’t planned on the specific timing, but posting this on Valentine’s Day has a certain irony, don’t you think?
