Review: Breaking Free from the Inner Critic by Kalie Marino

Breaking Free from the Inner Critic is a revolutionary book to rewire our brains to overcome our innermost limitations. We have been programmed by our environment from the very first moment we were born. From there onwards, we absorb the thoughts, teaching, emotions that people around us expressed towards us. We derive meanings from these experiences. Soon this becomes the foundation of our consciousness. This in turn infuses anxiety, fear, and negative emotions in our mind. This inner critic drags us behind from everything that we want to do in our lifetime. This book presents powerful tools to reprogram our mind to break free from the limits we created over time.

The author gives a new perspective to self-improvement. I realized the extent of inner critic’s influence in our thoughts and activities. Our environment is feeding the inner critic more subjects to explore each day. We are consuming more criticism than positivity. This was an eye-opener for me.

The book is written in a perfect structure. The author supports her claims with real-life examples, events from history and theology. The first part of the book is dedicated to the analysis of criticism and how we are addicted to it and wired this trait in our brain. The author supplements her arguments by giving psychological evidences. After a thorough explanation about the nature of this addiction, she then moves on to the symptoms. The next part concentrates on the solution of this problem.

Overall, this is a well-written book. The author adopted an interactive style of narration rather than a monotonous one. Throughout the book, every techniques and ideas are presented with a pinch of humor. This tone helped me to glide through the pages very easily.

About the Author. Kalie Marino, MSW, is a holistic and spiritual counselor, a social worker, ordained interfaith minister, respected leader in the field of personal growth, and popular public speaker. An expert on relationships, spirituality, and transformation, she reaches people with her positive message about personal power, love, and changing conscious states of mind.

Kalie was blessed to travel and study with some of the world’s greatest spiritual and transformational teachers as well as quantum physics theorists throughout the world. She has led seminars all over the country integrating these subjects. Her unusual background in quantum physics, psychology, and spirituality makes her uniquely qualified to share a practical perspective on creating personal and social transformation.

In 1997, she founded the Open-Heart Institute for teaching holistic and spiritual counseling, which included many energy psychology techniques that are breakthrough therapies for overcoming anxiety, stress, and trauma.

People use words like profound and insightful when they attend Kalie’s seminars. However, Kalie says, “I don’t tell people anything they can’t learn or already know through their experience. I just help them notice the self-evident truths that they have experienced and put a frame of reference around all of it, making this knowledge useful to create happiness”.

Kalie’s focus has always been tailored to reach beyond the intellect to how people create authentic change and energetic shifts in consciousness. She researched the cause of transformational change for her master’s thesis, integrating quantum physics with metaphysics and the human systems theory. Her research demonstrating that a person’s state of mind can even cause significant physical effects made headlines in The Brain/Mind Bulletin, a national scientific publication.

You may have seen her articles in New Visions Magazine, Wisdom Magazine, and Miracles Magazine. She has led seminars based on spiritual principles found in the book, A Course in Miracles, since 1978, and she has taught a variety of transformational processes across the nation since 1967.
