Inviting gentle but lasting change, so you have the required foundation for building the life you desire and deserve
To some extent we all experience self-criticism. We may not be fully aware of the degree of our own cynicism however, as this voice may be a familiar one. According to a study by Womankind, women criticise themselves on average eight times per day with the first criticism starting as early as 9.30am. Whilst awake, this means that women on average experience a self-critical thought every one and a half hours. Self-criticism is epidemic in modern society and something that I am passionate about helping women change, so that they can align to their true self.
Self-criticism is a manifestation of your unfiltered experiences as a child. This includes all that you saw, heard and witnessed in terms of judgment, criticism or hurt towards yourself or others at home, school or in society, as well as through the media. Therefore, self-criticism is simply conditioned thinking, a reactive response and learnt behaviour and not an expression of your authentic self.
As an adult, you are now capable of transforming this voice from one of disparagement to one of encouragement. You are worthy of and able to free yourself from conditioned self-cynicism, so that you can fully connect with your true nature and unleash your untapped potential. By aligning to your authentic self you reclaim your confidence, self-belief and worth. Through genuine and lasting self-empowerment, you can achieve the life you desire and deserve.
I warmly offer you my hand to welcome, reassure and guide you
I am Helen, the Founder of Soulful Woman Rising® and creator of this program. Through my former struggle with self-criticism, low confidence and self-doubt, I fully understand and empathise with the negative impact that the shadow self has on all aspects of life. For many years, I walked the path of believing that I was ‘not enough’ fuelled by covert fears of people’s judgment or rejection, that unknowingly forged a need within me to seek external validation from others.
Thankfully the embodiment of my feminine archetypes, empowered me to be aware of, understand and reconcile my conditioned shadow, so that I could discover, embrace and integrate my true self. During my journey I gained the self-acceptance, confidence and self belief I needed to remodel myself and my life. In reclaiming my true essence, I salvaged my life and feel deeply blessed to now be with my life-partner, have healthy friendships with like-spirited individuals, be helping women through my soul work and living my bliss.
Over the years many women have expressed similar struggles to my own; all suffering in silence as they were unsure of another way of being and living. Countless women were confined by their shadow beliefs, emotions and behaviours, preventing them living authentically, fulfilling their potential and being self-realised. I realised that these women needed a safe sanctuary that could support them in breaking free from their conditioned limitations and guide them to rise empowered! Blending professional training with my own experiences, I gladly share proven tools and easy-to-apply techniques, that empower the transition being your greatest critic to being your biggest champion.
Self criticism is the voice of your Inner Critic, who is one of many archetypes that together form your personality. Archetypes influence your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, as well as the decisions you make and actions you take on a daily basis by either empowering or dis-empowering you.
Some archetypes like your Inner Critic form part of your shadow self which is the disparaging and dis-empowering aspect of your psyche. Others such as your Inner Champion form part of your true self that is the authentic, encouraging and empowering part of you. Your shadow archetypes are the conditioned aspects of your personality, whilst the soulful archetypes form the authentic parts of who you are and were born to be.
The toxic effects of self-criticism can include:
Greater feelings of helplessness
Lowered ability to recognise opportunities
Decreased tendency to capitalise on opportunities
Self-blame for negative outcomes, results or experiences
Increased risk of mental health challenges such as depression
This bespoke program will help you to gently transition from a place of
self-criticism to self-celebration; improving your confidence, self-worth and self-belief.
You can guarantee that self-criticism shows up when you least expect or want it to. Cynical thoughts unexpectedly arise out of the blue, creating uncomfortable feelings in the body and spiralling negative thoughts, accompanied by worry or fear. Confidence is undermined with beliefs of not being good enough, triggering self doubt and feelings of helplessness. Once your Inner Critic is active, she influences your mood, motivation, focus, energy levels and resilience.
Your Inner Critic has various strategies to keep you trapped in your comfort zone, especially when you feel stressed, overwhelmed, under pressure or challenged. These can include needing to gain control, an innate desire to do things perfectly, over-working through fear of failure, imposter syndrome, guilt over past mistakes or wanting to conform to other people’s expectations. These thoughts and feelings unconsciously sabotage some or all aspects of your life such as relationships, career, health or wealth.
There is hope. You can break free from the limitations of your Inner Critic and reclaim your true self, so that you rise empowered, confident and free. You do not need to be haunted by the negative internal commentary of your Inner Critic that judges your efforts, criticises your actions or undermines your achievements. You no longer have to feel unfulfilled; taking two steps forward and one back in your personal or work life.
You can be free of limitation and rise self-empowered, more confident and believing in yourself.
You are capable of realising your potential and achieving your true heart’s desires.
Are you ready to rise up?
Let me support you and guide you step-by-step in taking the actions required to break free from the limitations of your Inner Critic and reclaim your true self, power and confidence.
Rise Up will help you gently transition from self-criticism to self-celebration by reconciling your Inner Critic and embracing your Inner Champion. This program is an exclusive blend of enlightened guidance, grounded practices and Soul Alignment Medicine™ self-healing techniques, that gently take you on a journey from dis-empowered to empowered living!
By mastering mindful practices, you will recognise when your Inner Critic becomes active and be aware of how she impacts your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. You will learn how to identify to what degree she sabotages the decisions you make and manipulates the actions you take; preventing you from expressing your true self, living in your power and fulfilling your potential. By nurturing a constructive relationship with your Inner Critic, she will feel seen, heard and witnessed by you, so feel safe to break free of her conditioned blueprint and return to wholeness.
Reclaiming your Inner Champion will enable you to develop positive self-talk, be emotionally responsive and engage in empowering behaviours. She is the real you that is ready to rise and thrive. You will learn to make soul-led decisions and discern what actions allow you to shine as your authentic self, be in your power and fulfil your true potential. By cultivating a collaborative relationship with your Inner Champion, you can experience the life you desire and deserve.
During the program, you will journey through the following modules.
