That critical voice that echoes inside your head – sometimes is helpful, and sometime is hurtful. That hurtful voice is called the “self-critic,” “inner critic”, "judger" or “pathological critic.”
The goal of this course is to identify your own unique internal critic voice and work with it, instead of engaging in the battle of self doubt and low self worth.
The negative thoughts that characterize self-critic become problematic when you believe these thoughts to be true. In these cases, the judging voice of your self-critic strongly affects your feelings, behavior and actions.
A powerful way to reduce the effect of self-critical thoughts is by observing them. Rather than being fully identified with negative, self-critical thoughts and believing them to be true, you get to shift into observation mode and stand back and simply witness these negative thoughts.
Please know that the Judger’s internal voice does not like to be challenged, instead it likes to get stronger and criticize even more.
The hands on exercises provided in this course are designed to provide you with valuable tools to take you through the observational journey so you can increase your awareness of your inner critic and shift into a more self-compassionate attitude towards yourself.
You are encourage to consider your Inner Critic from the perspective of an outside Inner Coach, and then transform your Inner Critic into your Inner Coach.

Board certified in Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy, trained with the prestigious Milton H. Erickson Foundation, a Contemporary Shaman, a Reiki Master Teacher, Carmen designs thought-feeling® practices as feelfulness techniques for both therapeutic purpose, peak performance or mastery.
Carmen coined the term “Creating Ease” in 2011. A Mensa member, mixed media artist and an international best-selling author she professes “all it takes is willingness.”
If mindfulness is a state achieved by focusing your awareness on the present moment, calmly accepting your feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, Carmen teaches you how to achieve a higher state of being by choosing the thought-feelings® desired, generating that state and using it both as a therapeutic technique, peak performance or mastery.
Carmen states: "Deliberately practicing chosen thought-feelings on a regular basis provides a significant tangible shift in your state of being. Because ideas weaved with corresponding feelings become creative actions and tangible results, make sure to use this circular sequence of creation wisely:
• Awareness • Thought • Attention • Choice • Action (generating states)
The subconscious works in and from patterns so be persistent and insistent; repeat your thought-feelings to imprint on your subconscious to deliver you the reality you desire: • Pattern Recognition - Thoughts • Pattern Utilization - Feelings • Pattern Creation - Thought-Feelings
The masterful self never entertains a feeling which does not contribute to a desired achievable outcome. This is the secret of mastery."
