Your Inner Wisdom is Whispering. Are You Listening?

With all of the busy-ness of life, it is easy to ignore your inner wisdom. It can get lost in the frantic mind chatter of the day-to-day tasks and the endless To-Do’s.

The whispering truth? You have so much wisdom and inner power with in you. We have been taught to look outside of ourselves for the answers when they really live inside us.

The 3 Biggest Ways You Drown Your Inner Wisdom – The 3 Sabotaging C’s

  1. Complaining - Focusing on what is wrong in your life. We all do it. We spend time talking to our friends about what went wrong, what we don’t like, etc.
  2. Comparing – When you compare yourself to others you give away your personal power. You are unique! You are not meant to be anything other than your unique, amazing self. Don’t waste time trying to be or look like someone else.
  3. Criticizing - Negative self talk is exactly this. You might criticize others as well, yet the most damaging is self-criticizing. We all do it. We spend way too much time ‘picking on’ ourselves instead of being kind and gentle with ourselves. This is the opposite of the important teaching of Ahimsa in yoga – non-violence, or loving-kindness. It all starts with your treatment of yourself. Everything else ripples out from that!
  • And a bonus (not one of the 3 Sabotaging C’s but it’s a biggie!)… Worrying – “Worrying is using your imagination to create what you don’t want.” ~Abraham-Hicks

3 Best Ways to Nurture Your Inner Wisdom – The 3 Empowering C’s

  1. Compassion – for yourself and others. Give yourself a compliment. Look for the good in others. Look for what you have done well today. Practice the art of self care!
  2. Choice – Choose a different, uplifting thought. Choose to look for the blessings in your life. Choose to imagine a good future instead of worrying about what could go wrong. Choose to believe in the best of yourself. Believe in your strengths and your intuition. Choose to try something different.
  3. Calmness – Create ways to be more calm. Create ways to slow down and be still. Be present to yourself and your feelings. Your intuition will blossom as will your trust in yourself and your inner wisdom.

  • Love this. It’s such a big deal. I always tell folks, “If I could only tell you to do one thing for your health, it would be to find the roots of stress, dig them up, and destroy them.” Its effects on the body are many in number and terrifying in nature, and all of that complaining, comparing, and criticizing is a big stressful mess.

    • Daniel,
      That is so beautifully said! I agree that complaining, comparing and criticizing just creates stress.
      It also gives our personal power away. It is draining. The 3 empowering C’s are just a better use of our time. ;-)
      Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment.
      Warm wishes,

  • What a great way to put it: The sabotaging C’s and the answer of the Empowering C’s! Simple and easy to understand.

    Comparing, complaining and criticizing gets us nowhere. So much so it actually pushes people away. It just invites pain and sorrow.

    But having the mindset of being compassionate, and also calming ourselves seems to give us more of an open mind.
    The best one I like is choice. We always have a choice. We may feel emotions, but we can overcome them by taking action.

    • Thank you Donna!
      It is great to know that this resonated with you and that it is simple and easy to understand.
      I think the most powerful things are. ;-)

      I love what you said: “Having the mindset of being compassionate, and also calming ourselves seems to give us more of an open mind.”
      When we are in the space of having an open mind we are so much more empowered! Don’t you think?
      Yes, choice is so powerful! I often encourage my clients to use the verb choose. And ask them to consider things like: What do you choose to do differently? What choices will make the biggest difference right now?

      Thank you for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful comment.
      With gratitude,
