June is an artist, writer, speaker and advocate for self-empowerment. In 1999, illness overcame her life. During her unwavering search for physical wellness, she stumbled upon the subject of emotional wellness. This discovery led her down a path of self-empowerment for which she will always be grateful. It opened the doorway to her heart. As a result, she has spent a great deal of the past fourteen years focusing on personal growth and self-help. June’s mission is to share what she has learned with other people to support them on their wondrous and sometimes rocky journey. She conducts workshops, writes and paints to share her passion and wisdom with her fellow advocates for self-empowerment.

The Nasty Voice

Action for the week:
It takes on many forms... 
An inner dialog that can sink all your hopes and dreams in a mere moment.  

Our self-judgment that persuades us to doubt our goodness and our abilities to create the positive that we would prefer to experience within our lives.  

The negative thoughts that manage to creep in while we are sleeping soundly and wake us instilling fear.

(This list could go on forever, so I am stopping here.) 

You know the nasty voice...    

The nasty voice tells us who we need to be...more perfect, better at pretty much everything, and what we are not...good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, likeable enough, etc. 
Essentially, the nasty voice never tells us who we truly are and what we are capable of being and doing in any shape or form. Just one dig after another. An ultra-negative nag that will go out of his/her way to make us feel bad. Right?  
Remember this to help quiet him/her down...the nasty voice is not who you are and will never suggest what you can do to help yourself. It cannot because it is pure judgment and NOTHING else. It is not truth. It is not accurate. It is not really you. It is judgment that has run amok. It has likely been unchecked many times so it may run wild some, if not much of the time. 

This week you are going to tame that intrusive beast, the nasty voice. You are going to lessen its grip on your mind. If you have been working on it, tame it even further. 
Every time the beast makes a statement remember the following:

This is judgment and nothing else.
This is not truth.
This is not accurate. 
This is not me.

Then interject some humor and love to get the nasty voice out of your mind.
Keep reconditioning your mind. Eventually the nasty voice will become a whisper and perhaps even undetectable at times. Maybe someday it will be totally powerless over your mind.     

Thoughts for the week:  
I am much more than a body and mind.
I am pure love
