I continue the discussion about creative blocks, as I delve deeper into the notion of judgment. Our inner critic can rear it’s head anytime we create, and it can seem like it’s an endless loop of criticism. Unfortunately, it’s one of the ways the ego tries to convince us to stop creating and maintain the status quo.
Why do we diminish and denigrate ourselves so much as we criticize and condemn our creative endeavors? Only by becoming aware of this inner voice, can we lessen the self-defeating talk and stay present with our creativity. By opening ourselves for non-judgment and recognizing the truth about our skills and our creations can we diminish the grip our inner critic has on us.
