Is there anyone in your life who you find annoying on a regular basis?
Typically that shows that one of two things is happening. This person could be reminding you of some part of your current or past self that you don’t want to see and haven’t accepted. Or, they could be regularly impinging upon your boundaries.
In the first case, your anger is misdirected. You are being challenged to make peace with yourself so you will stop projecting your anger onto someone else. In the second case, your anger is justified. You are being challenged to hold your boundaries in a powerful way.
You might judge the correctness of your anger and then feel guilty for getting angry, at all. The Inner Critic thrives on situations like this. When you become skilled at hearing your Inner Critic’s voice, you understand what is really happening, and you are able to do the right thing for yourself regardless of your “internal noise” the situation will resolve itself. Mindfulness practice is the key.
You’re not alone in this work. Many highly evolved people feel challenged in holding their boundaries. We are practicing a new way of defending ourselves without violence on any level. We must learn to hold our space like a spiritual warrior, with strength and peace and conviction.
This week, listen deeply to see what your Inner Critic has to say. And remember, your Spirit is love, light, trust, joy, and abundance. Stand true to that, like the warrior you are.
