The Game On Girlfriend Podcast

Feb 6 2024 • 48 mins

If you’re living with self-doubts and are worried about what others think of you – you might not even know how much they’re holding you back. Learn how to recognize your intuition and use it to translate what your inner critic is telling you to turn it into a force for good.

Jenn Beninger is the Founder and CEO of Genius Unlocked Coaching Institute, a board-certified company, where she coaches, mentors, and transforms leaders' personal and professional lives. Jenn has refined how to delve into what's holding people back, and guiding them to successfully live in their purpose by calling on their intuition.

After her first seminar about neuro linguistic programming, she realized she was living with outside influences directing where she wanted to go.

“Ladies, that is the number one thing that's stopping you from anything that you want to do in your life, is that the most vulnerable judgment that you have about yourself,” says Jenn.

What's going on in the internal world is how your external world presents itself to you. You set your goal with your conscious mind: I want this, I deserve this, I want the income. I want the business. I want to help people. I want that health. I want that wealth.

Your unconscious mind is the goal getter. Finding alignment requires deep work with intuition, which is the translator between your conscious and unconscious mind. Intuition is one voice. The others are your inner critic, your inner child and your inner ego.

Your inner critic tells you things like, I’m not worthy. I’m not good enough. The inner child tends to be fear or hurt based drawing on your lived experience. The inner ego digs in to be right. This is usually the identity you’ve given yourself or was given to you, and there is a desire to protect it. Your ego protects your inner child, and your inner critic protects the identity that you've already created.

Your intuition gives you the learnings that you deserve to learn about yourself so that those voices can quiet down. Your intuition is always kind, but it may not always be gentle. Your intuition shines a light on the positive qualities and characteristics that you suppressed in order to live in this human experience.

Your four voices are a way for you to learn more about yourself. You can honor all of them. Even if you’re facing down a fearful inner child, it's like a warning light in your unconscious mind.

Jenn says the two most vulnerable places for women is your bank account and the bedroom. For example, let’s look at wealth. Consider a coaching exercise of questions to ask yourself.

When I look at my bank account, what are the qualities and characteristics that come up about me?

2. When I look at all of those qualities and characteristics, what negative thoughts and emotions are attached to that?

3. What would you want the past version of yourself to know?

Understanding as coaches and as women how we operate and how our brains work will help us understand how we can create the change that we want to see in the world.
