About the Episode

Are you ready for a bit of a sh*t show? Today’s episode is messy, emotional and human - just like the healing journey.

As Rachel tackles an extra-loud inner critic, she is dealing with extreme feelings of self-doubt, a scattered mind, and an unanchored soul. She shares how these feelings came about, why they are there, and most importantly, what she does to move away from that negative inner voice (hint: it’s not what you think).

The healing journey is never the beautiful experiences we tend to see on television. Instead, healing is messy and hard. But it’s also not linear.

No matter how often you feel like you’re moving backward, you have never stopped putting one foot in front of the other. Tune in for the journey.

Key Takeaways

  • We all experience self-doubt. We heal from it by remembering that our worth never lies in our accomplishments.
  • Whatever your inner voice tells you, your first reaction is often to prove it wrong. But that never fixes the underlying problem.
  • Can you sit with the inner critic and acknowledge its presence? If you don’t run to fix it, you may find that negative inner voice loses its power.
  • Healing is not linear. You will have good days and bad - and you will learn something from each of them.
