Back to Top - Author Interview - February 2015

by Llewellyn

1. Your new book, Tame Your Inner Critic, is about taming the negative inner voice so many of us have so that we can live our lives with passion and purpose. What inspired you to write Tame Your Inner Critic?

Della Temple

A lot of my client work centers around helping people get over issues of unworthiness and self-deprecation. I wanted to spend our time together developing goals, helping them uncover their life purpose, and appreciating the gift they are meant to share with the world. And we did that—but first we had to work on self-acceptance.

So I wrote this book on taming the inner critic. The book includes over forty exercises and meditations designed to help the reader weed out the critical voices, the harsh words, that destroy self-worth, allowing their internal wisdom to shine through. Through this process they come to understand their true purpose in life, finding ways to share their unique gift with the world.

2. Why is quieting our inner, personal judgments and doubts so critical to being able to live a happy, meaningful life?

I believe that the inner critic is a mash up of all the thoughts, feelings, criticisms, and judgments we've picked up from the people in our lives and accepted as our own truth. It's difficult to hear our true wisdom among the cacophony of these competing voices.

It calls to my mind the image of walking in dense fog, surrounded by this thick vapor, preventing you from seeing the road in front of you. Some of this mist sticks to your clothes leaving you feeling a bit soggy and wet. 

Thoughts are just like this foggy mist. The thoughts and feelings of others can be so thick that you can feel them. And they are sticky, just like the mist. We become covered with thoughts and feelings that we've unconsciously picked up and stored away in our body and the energetic space surrounding us.  

Soon we can't hear our true wisdom—thoughts that originate within us—from the stray thoughts that we've picked up as we've intermingled with our friend and neighbors. Living a life full of purpose and meaning–your own purpose and meaning–can be pretty difficult if we are covered in a mist of other people's thoughts and feeling.

Hacking Life, the Universe, and Everything through Afro-Cuban Ifį, Santerķa’s High Priesthood
by Frank Baba Eyiogbe

Thousands of years ago, babalawos ("Fathers of the Secrets") discovered the underlying fabric of the Universe—and how to manipulate it. Frank Baba Eyiogbe, babalawo and author of Babalawo, Santerķa's High Priests, explains the system and the process.
