Integrating the Inner Critic

The Nature of the Inner Critic

You are not just one person.  You are a history of ideas, talents, experiences, and dreams.  All of the ages of you are still alive in you.  

You are part of the history of your culture or country of origin.  You are part of the myths, stories, traditions, and rituals of those cultures

You also have within you many archetypes.  The psychologist, Carl Gustav Jung, used the concept of archetype in his theory of the human psyche to help us understand that universal, mythic characters—archetypes—reside within the collective unconscious of people the world over.

All of these parts of you have also have a voice.  Sometimes you may be aware of these voices.  Sometimes they are unconscious to you - yet they are still impacting your behavior and choices.

The Inner Critic and the Inner Heroine are two sides of the same coin.  Wherever we have light, we have dark.  Yet with all of the richness of light that can be explored and integrated within us, the voice we most often hear most clearly is the Inner Critic.

The Inner Critic is a part of personality that tries to keep you safe by criticizing you to motivate you.  

The Inner Critic can be a relentless master.  Always pushing.  Always criticizing. Always lashing out for "screwing up", "being lazy", and reminding you of all the ways of "not being enough of something."

In this program you will explore and integrate your own Inner Critic using the Visual Journaler methods.
