* Be impeccable with your word *
Criticizing, blaming and complaining make you the victim. You give away your power any time you criticize, blame or complain.
Have awareness during your day any time you find yourself criticizing, blaming, complaining, gossiping, expressing shame or any other negative aspect or behavior you are choosing to spend energy on and give power to. This can happen in subtle ways throughout your day, in spoken conversation with others, digital conversation by emailing or texting and even thoughts you have about yourself. When this happens, take this opportunity to change the words you speak not only about others, but also about yourself.
Develop a discipline of mindfulness to change your old habits into better more empowering behaviors. Make it a practice to send light, love, forgiveness or whatever else is needed for the situation. Release the thought that is attached to the negative words. Instead, speak with integrity, speak truth, send light and love to yourself and to others. This will take practice over and over in order to master it, but when mastered you will find the drama that used to surround you no longer has the effect on you, and you now have peace and happiness once again.
