Our inner journey of connecting with our True Self is nothing more than the process of remembering who we truly are - an eternal soul. Simple, basic and not special at all. However, on a practical level it can be one of the toughest journeys we will ever embark on! Read about the 10 most common obstacles of Facing our True Self and why we really need teachers, books, therapies, drugs, yoga or other ‘techniques’ to be who I AM.

Being connected with our True Self unlocks the deep understanding of ourselves and our Divine nature and also our higher abilities, such as healing and self-healing. It creates the unmistakable feeling of oneness in our heart accompanied with a yearning to be true to ourselves, others and our needs - basically, the calling to live our true potential and purpose in life.

But why is it that being true to oneself seems like such a big deal? Don’t we all have a True Self? Aren’t we the authority in matters of ourselves? What can we do to be more connected with our True Self? 


1. Critical Inner Voice

One of the most common reasons why we are not naturally connected with our True Self is because we think it makes us vulnerable.

We all are familiar with both guilt and shame. The frequency or depth to which these are experienced in our lives can depend on a variety of influences, both internal and external- parents or early caregivers, peers, influence of media, religious teachings and even our own personal beliefs as to the purpose and meaning of our life experience.

Guilt is often the feeling that arises as a result of doing or even thinking something that we believe, for whatever reason, is “wrong”. Behind shame lies the belief that we (self) are defective, that there is something “wrong” with us that made it possible for us to commit that action or have those thoughts.

July 2016 Energies (Full Moon)

Starting by the approaching last quarter of July a new urge for finding solutions is rising within us. Until the middle of September will be a very good time for working on some of our relationship patterns but also general aspects of inner emotional handling and self-love aspects.

Our Critical Inner Voice is very often linked to our mothers or fathers. If we take a moment and listen we can literally hear the voice of our mother, father or other caretakers, correcting, shaming, guilt-tripping or judging us. Having said this, there is no judgment against our mothers or fathers intended in this statement; on the contrary! What I am referring to is the programming we were exposed to in our childhood and how it can affect us as adults. Some of this programming is the result of parental love and care and helps us to make good choices, for example: ‘Eat our greens!’ or basic safety aspects of life.

Our Critical Inner Voice is the voice of our programmed ego-mind, or as Dr. Lisa Firestone defines it: “… a well-integrated pattern of destructive thoughts toward ourselves and others. “(www.psychalive.org) .

Programming happens not only through our caretakers, but also through our socio-cultural background, religious exposure, friends and co-workers and of course personal experiences. Just in case you are wondering, our Critical Inner Voice is not some demonic monkey whispering degrading thoughts into our ears (well, sometimes it can feel/look that way on an energetic level), but rather a reflection of heard snippets, judgments and views of the past from people around us. The more emotionally impacting they were back then, the more these phrases stuck to us as they found their way into our mental field. Sadly, the most traumatic emotional experiences often stick with us the most. So, in essence, our Critical Inner Voice is mostly a conglomerate of scolding and comparing heard in our childhood, which often triggers our infantile deep inner fear of making mistakes or not being good enough.

In this intimate conversation with the published book author and talk2momz.com founder, Ida Lawrence, we discuss personal circumstances leading to energetic sensitivy and consciousness awakening. It has been a pleasure and honor talking with Ida about our childhoods and how they shape who we become!

In previous articles I have shared how aspects of our childhood can contribute to finding our true purpose in life and how they allow us to develop skills, talents and also shadow traits, that can either enhance or limit our life's journey. If you are interested in more on this topic click here.

Have you ever had the thought, that “things were sooo much easier” before you started having all these spiritual insights and deeper realizations? Well, I have – still do - all the time! But I also know that this is what self-healing is all about: Stepping out of my comfort-zone, not listening to my inner critic and facing the reality of my happiness!

Our Critical Inner Voice is a good example. It is one of those subjects that can totally change the way the see and handle inner processes, as it pretty much influences our entire belief system, attitude and views of self and the world around us. Once we recognize our Critical Inner Voice for what it is, either through inner contemplation, reading something about it or talking with others, it’s hammering loud voice in our head cannot be ignored anymore. Actually, if you listen closely you can sometimes hear people’s Critical Inner Voice in the way they talk. Sudden, brief remarks or side notes in a different tone of voice often indicate a vocalization of their inner voice. Pay attention to this for a bit – you’ll be surprised how much we all unconsciously carry these parts of our inner voices on the tip of our tongue!

I remember the time when I thought I was the only one plagued by this constant negative inner self-talk. Knowing what I know today, I think it’s safe to assume that we all intuitively understand what a Critical Inner Voice means, even if we have never heard or read anything about it. What I learned in my personal life and through my energy work practice is that changing our inner attitude, perception of self and communication can initiate a very powerful inner healing process and is often more transformational for our practical lives than gaining intellectual insights or perusing spiritual enlightenment.

Facing the deeper aspects of our Critical Inner Voice requires a clear intention to heal the parts in us that are linked to our inner critic; in fact, for a long-term release of the inner emotional, mental and energetic schisms that can come out of an undisciplined and rampaging Critical Inner Voice, we need even more: We need the courage and willingness to uncover and own our hidden aspects that are expressing through this part of our inner communication. Affirmations, mental reprogramming or reframing can help to get over the first hump to conquer inner negativity, but what truly makes us mentally, emotionally and spiritually grow lies much deeper than just our psychological layers.
