Tapping into your inner Buddha. Address a problem, in writing and using three different coloured pens, firstly from your inner critic, then respond from the criticised, and then allow our inner Buddha, the wise compassionate being inside yourself, to have their say. It can be any problem that has caused you distress, or just something inside yourself that you would like to address. You can go back and forth between the three as many times as you need to. When you feel the discussion is complete come up with positive affirmation(s) that can be used whenever the criticism arises in the future. Finally, write yourself a short letter, from your inner Buddha, use it as a reminder of what your Buddha wishes to say to you whenever you feel criticised. You will learn so much about yourself doing this exercise, plus you can use it over and over on many and varied issues.
