I have recently had a realization that feels like sad awakening. All the time I have  bathing in self criticism. I have come to understand that I just lowered my volume of self criticism. That critical voice I learned growing up. It was an excellent start, but not enough to fully heal. This is not an easy topic to discuss with almost anyone. Why? The self critical voice is a large part of most inner dialogues.


What we say to ourselves often does not seem like self criticism. This is because It is what we heard growing up from family, teachers, coaches, the media, etcetera.  To not chide ourselves with words like hurry up, faster, not good enough leaves many people clueless as to what to say. How else would I get things done? How would I be my best? At least I am not starting and ending each sentence with the word stupid! That was how I viewed progress, and it was.

I have a way to go. So many years of thinking that if I was not treating myself exactly like the nuns, teachers, employers, the media, my parents, I was not self abusive. Aware of many of my thoughts, but not knowing how to retrain myself, it has been hard to be truly self loving. I am learning.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
