Self Awareness – Healing our Inner Demons
In Healing our Inner Demons, we gain priceless Self Awareness
However when we push away and disown our unwanted behaviours many things happen. Disowning our anger, jealousy, fears, hatreds means that these emotions have nowhere to go. We then, unintentionally create these “demons” that come back to haunt us when we’re feeling low, tired or ill.
Negative Conditioning from Childhood
Say I have had many ongoing childhood experiences of being found “wrong”, “not good enough”, or labelled “stupid” by either parents or teachers. Years later I leave home/school, but by now I’ve turned this abusive behaviour back towards myself – beating myself up, condemning my every effort to connect with others.
Until I become very conscious of this negative self talk, I’ll be always limiting myself.
I’ll be attacking myself with my own energy. In this way I’ll automatically create even more feelings of anger, frustration and/or jealousy. I will keep myself small and powerless.
We need to face our demons. When we truly know them, we can then very deliberately discard them as utterly false. Above all, this takes determination and persistence.
After a relatively short while however, we can become so much more aware of this negative nagging inner voice. Therefore, it’s then possible to dismiss it for what it is – an old demon from the past that is still trying to rob us of our self confidence and courage in facing life’s challenges.
In conclusion, looking within is crucial to identify and release illusion and then we can direct ourselves to our outer lives with so much more confidence and poise.
