Dr. Bunny Vreeland, Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Counselor, Ordained Minister and the owner of MercuryBroadcasting.net, talks about Judgement and how it affects our lives and our relationships. She sees how judgement can create problems in her client’s lives so she wanted to share some thoughts about judgement with you.
When we think of ‘Judgement’, we generally think of how we perceive people, form impressions, or think about social things.
Forming our first impressions of people, and how we respond to those first impressions, decides how we judge them.
There are times when we judge people incorrectly. Sometimes we make quick decisions before we get the facts and – EEEK! They could be unfair or even completely wrong! Has that ever happened to you?
Where do judgements come from? Most are ego-based. Becoming aware of where your judgments come from does not mean you no longer have preferences. Certain types of behavior may still seem unattractive. However, working to understand your judgements, and where they come from, can help you feel compassion, instead of judgement.
This doesn’t mean you will suddenly be accepting of everything, but you can, at the very least, feel neutral.
Seek to have discernment, which is defined as “the ability to judge well”, or in other terms: understanding and awareness without any emotional response. If a judgement has a particularly emotional feeling, that is a clue to put the practice of discernment in action. Practicing discernment has a very different feeling than hitting those red hot emotion buttons.
Achieve greater happiness and success by letting your judgements and reactions guide you to better a understanding of yourself.
By using your judgment as a “mirror” of inner reflection, each experience you have can actually be a gift and blessing on your road to greater understanding – of yourself and others!
