What does it mean by Working on The Inner Game?
Even though you’ve probably heard the term “the inner game” thrown around have you wondered what it really means?
First the fact that there is an inner game implies that there is an outer game. Every game is composed of two parts, an outer game and an inner game.
The inner game has to do with the obstacles of self doubt, anxiety, disempowering beliefs and other obstacles in the way that prevent us from achieving our dreams.
Who are you?
Often when we want to create or manifest a dream that we have, we start building it without first coming from a place that we know we are going to succeed. Knowing who you really are is the place where you begin.
It’s immersing yourself in the truths that you are a co-creator with the Universe, that the Universe is connecting the dots for you, that miracles are happening in your life, and that you are powerful.
You didn’t incarnate into this world so that you had to figure everything out with your conscious mind. Being in that unknown place creates infinite possibilities that the Universe always knows.
When you really know the truth of who you are, when you really know this, creating what you desire becomes comparatively easy because it removes the struggle of knowing how it’s all going to manifest. You don’t have to figure how it’s going to happen.
That’s the job of the Universe. However you do need to know or at least have a general idea of what it is that you do want to create. You don’t need to know the details. In fact it becomes a challenge to know the specifics using just your five senses. That’s what we usually do. We use our five senses to give us the answers when really that’s not it’s job.
It’s when we try to figure out the details that we get stressed out, doubt ourselves, want to quit and so on. What also takes most of us out before we are even out of the gate is when we are unaware of our thoughts, beliefs and emotions; we are just like a fallen leaf…blown aimlessly by the wind because our emotions and reactions control us.
When you are aware of who you are, you feel empowered, powerful and confident, and now instead of sailing without a rudder you allow the wind to catch the sail on your sailboat to carry you where you want it to go.
Where does it start?
So the inner game is where it all starts, which is working on yourself, knowing what makes you tick, what makes you sad, happy, fearful and so on. It’s knowing that you’re not on your own, that the Universe has your back is covered. It’s asking the questions (I call it staying in the question) and then listening to the answers you receive and then taking little baby steps to get you moving forward.
Part of the inner game also means releasing your fears and becoming aware of why you react to things the way you do, so that you can release those feelings to allow new patterns in your life to emerge. However if you don’t release those fears they remain active somewhere deep inside your subconscious influencing all your behaviors.
When you encounter road blocks and you most certainly will, instead of making decisions based on reactions, you will remind yourself of the truths of who you are and act on the validity of those truths.
Here’s the bottom line – do you on a deep level know who you really are?
Stay with this question until you KNOW (not only on a mental, but on a soul level) that you are the Universe. You are boundless, a powerful co-creator, and infinite. When you come from this knowingness everything is possible.
That’s the reason we need to work on our inner game because we often forget who we are and return to our default program that tells us differently.

I enjoyed your post Brenda on the Inner Game. Most times I’m on top of my game- Inner and Outer but then there are times when there is a misalignment brought on by factors that are outside of my control.
I’ve trained myself to become aware about this and my first question to myself is to ask what is really happening? It might take time but I do find that new roadblock and work on it to get back into my A Game.
Thank you for an informative guiding post.
Vatsala, you have demonstrated so well that you are present, and are aware when there is a misalignment taking place in your life. Not only that but by taking the next step of also continuing to sit with the question of what’s happening here you received the answer or solution as to what to do. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this. Many blessings,
