We’ve all heard it and felt it in some form or another: “You’re not good enough,” You’re not pretty enough,” “You’re not smart enough,” blah, blah, blah. Those all too familiar nagging critical inner voices that can cast doubt on our goals and undermine our accomplishments.
These voices might be there when we take that first glimpse of ourselves in the mirror in the morning. "You're so unattractive. You're fat. What a slob. Just look at your hair, hips, waistline."
Sometimes they’ll hit us at work . "You're under too much pressure. You'll never get everything done. No one even notices you. You should just give up."
It's even there to critique your closest relationships. "He doesn't really love you. No one could care about you. It will never last. Just don't be vulnerable."
Professionals in the field of psychology have stated that the critical inner voice can be formed from painful early life experiences in which we witnessed or experienced hurtful attitudes toward us or those close to us. Then as s we grow up, we unconsciously adopt them and eventually integrate them as destructive or damaging thoughts toward ourselves and others.
When we fail to identify and separate ourselves from this inner critic, sometimes we allow it to impact our behaviour and even shape the direction of our lives. It can sabotage our successes or our relationships, preventing us from living the lives we want to lead and becoming the person we seek to be.
So how can we use crystals to help separate ourselves from this damaging critical voice that is inside us? Our Certified Crystal Healers at Radiance Gifts have come up with the top four Crystals that can help.
