The Inner Critic, or Judge as I call him (or her) often lies. It may get some facts right, and be accurate sometimes, but if you look closely you will see that it often lies. These lies can be brutal to our emotional state and self worth. It can incapacitate us emotionally and paralyze our state of mind into victim-hood. It will want you to focus on the parts it says that are true so we don’t notice the lies, and damage it does. Here is a video that breaks down some of the Belief Systems of the Judge that are false.
One of the keys to dismantling the Inner Critic is to become skeptical of it. This is helped by finding small ways to doubt it’s story and judgments. Over time, with repetition, you can take your personal power out of the long held beliefs of the Judge. The better you master skepticism of that voice the faster your emotions will change. To do this another key element is to separate your perspective from the voice in your head. The Self Mastery Course has multiple exercises that combine so that you can live free of this mental tyrant.
