Guided Meditation – “Quiet the Inner Critic, Find Calmness, and Guide Yourself”

Aug 31, 2021

I created my first ever “Guided Meditation”! It’s almost 14 minutes long and focuses on finding calmness, quieting the inner critic, and guiding yourself to answers.

“You are the only one you are waiting on.”

I made my first audio-visual “guided meditation”!

It’s an answer to my own struggles with the inner-critic’s negative dialogue, procrastination, and not taking ownership in my own life.

This ~14 minute audio covers…

• Calming oneself down,

• Identifying a calling/goal – and the next step to take, and

• Reframing negative, self-critical thoughts into more self-empowering dialogue.

I was so enveloped in this experiment that for a day, it cured my procrastination, self-criticism, depression symptoms, anxiety, distraction tendency, …

It’s the calmest and most ‘sovereign’ I’ve felt in a while.

All I’ve needed lately is to be able to talk to myself in a kind way.

To feel, internally, as though I am in the driver seat of my life.

To not berate myself every waking moment.

When I ‘hear’ and ‘see’ myself in these kinds of projects, it usually pushes me to tears – because I commonly live in a state of passivity and consumption.

I aspire to live in the arena – but often watch from the sidelines.

These experiences end up breaking me – because it’s an interrupt to the norm; stepping off my own beaten path.

These projects are how I push myself off of the sidelines and into the arena.

When I went to sleep the night before, I felt this feeling that “something will be different tomorrow.”

The moment I woke up I started thinking about this project.

Even though it’s not the first time I’ve had the IDEA, it IS the first time I actually DID something with the idea.

I stayed completely “off grid” for hours of writing, went straight into recording, experimented with visualizers, and finished out the project.

Most of the “problems” I envisioned weeks and months ago – I pushed through and found a solution to.

———

During the creation of this project, there was a ‘moment.’

I started thinking about “you.”

How “you” would perceive the creation.

How I should keep writing and editing it for “you.”

🟥 RED ALERT — I stopped the moment I caught it.

“You” are not client of this project.

I restarted my editing to write in a way that the “client” would be pleased.

More direct, less passive, and more kind and encouraging.

“What was the message I needed to give to myself? What did I need to audibly hear?”

While this creation is certainly for me – I hope that some of you will enjoy it. 💖

I will be trying this meditation in the mornings and throughout days when I need a “reset” to shush the inner critic.

If you give it a try and you have a positive experience or some constructive feedback, I would love to hear it.

Thanks for reading. Happy listening. ❤
