This is a guided meditation on turning our self-criticism into self-confidence. During this practise, we learn to acknowledge and accept the self-critical mind, detach from its story, and cultivate a healthy balance, taking equal note of our accomplishments. We then rest in the simplicity of the present moment, in which everything is okay and we are calm, healthy and happy.
In this episode, David talks about saying no to the inner self-critic. Self-criticism, low self-esteem and thoughts of being not good enough can be really debilitating and hold us back from achieving our dreams and highest aspirations. Talking from the perspective of Buddhist psychology, David talks about what leads to overly critical thoughts and beliefs and provides some ways of letting go of these thoughts and building our self-confidence.
