When I first painted this, I remember feeling aghast that the ink had run (it first autocorrected to say fun;-) down from the sitting being, and made a SPLOTCH. 

Then I calmed my inner perfectionist and let the beauty come. 

And now I love the running ink. 

Where do you experience similar AGHASTNESS and/or ACCEPTANCE? Let me know in the comments

Inner Critics will run your life in a negative way if you don’t help them to redirect

Redirect them using my Inner Critic One Step process. It’s fast & effective. 

You’ll notice that inner critics love to use words like always, never, should, and lots of exclamation points

I call these: Accusations

Here’s an example:

Inner Critic Accusation: 

You’ll never be able to have a good relationship!!! 

These kinds of accusations feel awful and often run continuously in the background of our minds, like a kind of ambient noise

You have the power to write a counter statement that will redirect an inner critic accusation. Use the word Actually to start– it establishes your power and sovereignty.

Here’s an example: 

Your counter statement: 

Actually, I have had many good relationships, and I am learning so much about love and practicing often and in new ways. I’m excited and inspired about my present and my future with love relationships. 

The point is not to argue with an inner critic, justify, defend or over explain. The object is to assert and establish yourself as the leader of your life in every area

Then you will be able to be still more often, and let the beauty come.
