Having Tea with our Demons is a metaphor for practicing acceptance of our own Mistakes, Shortcoming, failures, poor judgements, or external circumstances. We may often try to fight these thoughts in an effort to change when things go wrong in life. Some of us may feel that we can self-deprecate ourselves into better actions and become self-critical and assign a sense of blame or shame around of our own limitations.

To improve our flexibility, we don’t force or fight our body into a new position. We gently allow the muscle fibers to expand one fiber at a time and consistently over time our bodies change. If it can happen in our body why can’t happen in our mind?
✔ What rises to the surface in the moments when you feel the most overwhelmed, experience a feeling of impending doom for no good reason, or not enough in some way? What’s your go to self-criticism?
✔ This is a pretty good indicator of our most prominent personal demon who could probably use a cup of Tea…
