6 Elements of Stressful Living-Day 4: Judgment

Reading Time: 4 minutes 6 Elements of Stressful Living And how to Live and Work Stress Free: Day 4: Judgment This is a series of six articles. Get Day 1: Pushing here. Get Day 2: Rushing here. Get Day 3: Dutifying here.   Judgment is the cousin of guilt and shame. It is the aunt of resistance and control addiction. It is sister to the dutifying of life. Judgment once came from your elders or culture. Now you internalized those voices, and you are constantly judging yourself and feeling inadequate or declaring yourself guilty. You add injury to this inadequacy by trying to control your results, your work or your life in order to make it look like you think it should be —which is usually the same as what you think that others think that it should be. The result is cheer misery. If there is one thing you should abolish in your life to be free, this thing is judgment. Stop judging yourself and you will soon stop judging others.

To be or not to be Received

Reading Time: 7 minutes In this article I explore the consequences of not being received by our loved ones at an early age. Not being received in who we truly are, our Unique Essence, our gifts and talents, our passions and purpose. The consequence, in a nutshell, is the prohibition to BE. Family Karma To be a mother or a parent is a position of leadership. Yet our society does not train us to recognize this power, and therefore this responsibility. It does not give us the skills we need to assume this leadership role. Not only that, but we enter parenthood with a dark baggage of wounds, learned limitations, fears and frustration; a baggage I call the Shadow Bundle or the Shadow Inheritance. To be a mother or parent is a master artist position. Yet, most of us enter this position after being evicted from our own personal freedom and creative power. We enter it with a social script that is limited and limiting. The child born to us is not a blank canvas. She comes with a purpose and a set of [Read more.]
