Inner Ally visualization. When we let our Inner Critics dominate, we lose confidence, lower our resilience, and we keep ourselves small, rather than living our more expansive, truer selves. One of the most powerful tools I use with myself and my clients strengthens our conscious connection with our Inner Ally - that part of ourselves that offers us wisdom, clarity, compassion and courage, but from which we can become disconnected. It's a part of ourselves that is always available to us and that unconditionally accepts who we are. I frame this visualisation with a brief context and preparation, and then end with some suggestions of how you might use what comes up for you in your daily life to support you. It takes about 13 minutes altogether.
