How To Make Your Life Work

podcast Sep 22, 2020

Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners! Why is it that for most of us, even when our lives are great, we find reasons to be unhappy? And yes, you can feel relieved to know that this is not just you that feels this!  

This is all of us. And that is because our Inner Critic mind is hard-wired to anticipate the worst outcome. That is rooted in our primitive survival mechanism, which is how our Inner Critic mind was created.  

At 2 years old, you might have figured out that the way to get what you wanted was to scream and yell, and try to power trip your parents. At 2 years old, that is the only power that we have. As we get older, we try to figure out how we can get what we want. Beginning at about 3 or 4 years old, we’re trying to figure out how we get other people, beginning with our parents, to love and value us.  And these early beliefs create lifelong patterns.  

As you got older, you began to find other “winning...

Life Is Happening for Us, Not to Us

podcast Sep 08, 2020

Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners!  Today, I want to talk about taking this concept that everything in our lives is actually happening FOR us. 

Imagine if EVERYTHING in your life as it is right now is the way that it is because it is actually a mirror to show you something about YOU.  See, this is the only way we change our lives---when we are looking at everything in our lives through the lens of personal responsibility. And I do mean EVERYTHING!  

The question to ask is: What is this current circumstance here to teach me and show me about ME? 

I know that is a hard pill for most people to swallow. The areas in our lives where we are dissatisfied, frustrated, unhappy, or overwhelmed are all there to teach us to be more of who we truly are. What this journey of life is really all about, is about waking up to the fact that everything that we say we want, we can only find WITHIN us--not outside of us. 

This is a lesson that...

Use Your Pain to Create Your Freedom

podcast Aug 25, 2020

Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners!  Today I want to talk about why your painful and uncomfortable emotions are not only necessary but actually crucial in learning to rewire a new mind. And because anything you want to create differently in your life is only possible with a new mind, it is imperative that you know how to use your pain to create your freedom. 

I talk a lot about your Inner Critic’s addictions. These are the demands and needs that your Inner Critic says must be met for you to feel good. You need to make sure no one is disappointed in you. You need to make sure you aren’t judged or rejected. You need to make sure you find a job, or else you’re a loser. You need to make sure you find a relationship so you can feel valued and important. You need to make sure you lose weight or else you are not good enough.  

Now remember, your Inner Critic mind is only focused on the past or the future. So all of those...

My Dad, the Lake, and My New Mind

podcast Aug 18, 2020

Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners! I want to share an experience I had with my dad a couple of weeks ago, which illustrates what it looks like to operate from a rewired mind. So I will get to that in a few minutes.  I want to say that the first step to rewiring a new mind, is to wake up to the recognition that almost all of the thoughts that we have had for much of our lives, have really been our computer programmed thoughts from our Inner Critic.  

 And when we first wake up to this, it can feel very strange. It’s almost as though you are having an out of body experience because you are stepping outside of your mind and putting all of your thoughts in the palm of your hand and watching them, seeing those thoughts as separate from you, it’s like whoa….. I am not really sure who I am!  

Your Inner Critic feels threatened when you stop listening to it and taking guidance from it.  It will scream louder at...

How to Remain Peaceful No Matter What - Find Your Strawberries!

podcast Aug 11, 2020

Hey Dethroners.  Today I want to talk about how to sustain a feeling of peace and clarity no matter what circumstances you are facing.  

The work of Dethroning Your Inner Critic is about just that--living a life of peace, joy, and contentment by learning HOW to think, which we are not taught to do. What knocks us out of peace, is what we perceive to be our problems. Now, what you perceive to be a problem- something that is supposed to be or should be different than exactly how it is right now. So to free yourself from all of your inner turmoil, you have to be able to spot what your automatic, Inner Critic mind is demanding.  

Whether that is something about you that should be different, something about someone else that should be different, or some circumstance that should be different, your Inner Critic is triggering very uncomfortable emotional responses when something in your world doesn’t fit the way your Inner Critic says it's supposed to. So when...

As I Awaken, I Awaken You

podcast Jul 28, 2020

Can't listen? Here's the transcript:  

Hey Dethroners!  I am getting so many messages from so many listeners around the world, about the pain that you are in. I want to talk about the world we are living in right now, filled with so much uncertainty, so much fear, so much social and political injustice, unemployment rising, COVID numbers skyrocketing, how can WE ALL play a part in changing the world we are living in?  How can we all wake up to who we are meant to become? 

With the state of the world right now, we have a powerful opportunity to reflect and refocus on the things that really matter to us. We really have 2 choices. Either we bury our heads and stay stuck in the familiar fear, despair, and helplessness, or we take this time to be the change we want to see in the world. 

I truly believe that we are all on a journey to continue to become who we are really meant to be. I believe that this is a never-ending journey, with no arrival...

Are You Living in Memory or Inspiration?

podcast Jul 21, 2020

Can't listen? Here's the transcript:

Hey Dethroners!  Today I want to talk about the difference between living life from your memory and living a life from inspiration. First, let’s talk about what it means to live life from your memory, which is where probably what 90% of people do.  

The work of dethroning your Inner Critic is to dissolve your hidden conditioned computer programs that block you from living the life that you want and attaining your dreams in every area of your life. Essentially, we are learning how to think from an entirely different mind than the one that we have been using throughout our lives. But rewiring a new mind is virtually impossible when we are continuing to drag along pain from our past. 

Most people have no idea that they continue to drag toxic energy and faulty thinking from their past that is tainted by painful memories. They are stuck in suffering over the people that hurt them, or circumstances that should have been...

The Spiritual Side of Dethroning Your Inner Critic

podcast Jul 14, 2020

Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners!  Today I want to talk about the combination of brain science and spirituality when it comes to doing the work of Dethroning Your Inner Critic.  

First, let’s talk about the brain science. Our brains are hardwired for survival. So the only thing our physical brain really cares about is seeking pleasure and avoiding pain.  And for this reason, your Inner Critic is your default mode of thinking. 

Simply put, it is how you think when you are in survival mode. Your Inner Critic is nothing more than a conditioned set of beliefs beginning in early childhood, that becomes your identity. And because so many parts of our personality are created by how we think, act and feel, our personality is intimately connected to our personal reality.  So the work of dethroning your Inner Critic is about becoming conscious of your unconscious thoughts, which gives you access to consciously thinking new...
