Seven Common Inner Critics and How to transform your thinking

Seven Common Inner Critics and How to transform your thinking

" In Case you haven't noticed, you have a mental dialogue going on inside your head that never stops.  It just keeps going and going."- The Untethered Soul by Michael A Singer 

In this weeks episode I talk about the seven most common inner critics and the messages that they send.  Dr Jay Earley and Bonnie Weiss LCSW have narrowed down the inner critical voices into these seven types and if we can begin to pay attention to the messages of these negative dialogues we can begin to renew our thinking and heal from trauma and past hurts.  

Becoming aware of these critics allows us the ability to bring those things to prayer and ask for God's guidance and healing so that Satan  doesn't multiply the message and guide us to strongholds and sin.

So let's get busy paying attention so that we can break free!!!

When God says....I know how to best use you

This week my special guest is Courtney Gill, friend, pastor and violinist

How do you spot God's gifts and purpose for your life? 

Today's episode is all about when you think God's purpose for your life is one thing and life takes a very different path.  Courtney shares her journey from violinist to pastor.  She discusses how God had used her love for music to care for his people and share his word to those around.  Openly she tells of God's "clues" in the search for  her purpose  and how she is still listening for his direction with each new season of life. 

Together we talk about the journey toward deepening our faith and healing past wounds to align ourselves with God's will
