Getting Over Imposter Syndrome
Imposter syndrome. It creeps up on the best of us.
"Who am IIII to say this? To teach this? To lead, inspire, be this BOLD and out there all over the interwebs?"
We tend to identify with our faults, old patterns and past versions of ourselves more than we do our vision and who it is we are here to be.
So let's switch it, change it, rearrange it.
And CRUSH this imposter syndrome once and for all, shall we?
(Come back to this blog whenever you feel the imposter demon creepin' back up.)
1. YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD.
You are here for a motherf*ckin' reason. You are here on purpose. And only YOU know that purpose. Deep in your heart. Deep in your soul. It's there. You know it is. Everything you have been through, was intentionally set up on a soul level, to help you live out your purpose and assist the humans you are here to assist.
2. THE WORLD NEEDS YOUR UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE.
Just because Sally on Instagram is talking about the same thing you feel called to talk about, does NOT mean there is no room for you to talk about it. Does NOT mean your "market is saturated" or whatever the cool kids are saying nowa days. (That mindset stems from lack and scarcity btw.) There is room for you. There is PLENTY of room for you. You are unique. You are different. NOT ONE single person sees life through your lens of perception. There are people out there that specifically need to hear it FROM YOU.
3. YOU ALREADY ARE THAT WHICH YOU ENVISION YOURSELF TO BE.
The only thing blocking you from becoming it?? Your refusal to see yourself as such.
Here's the thing, that high vibe, badass, kicking' ass, crushin' life, impacting the world while making BANK version of yourself you visualize and journal about... IS you. You already ARE this person. (Or else you would not be able to visualize it in your mind's eye. This is just how our mind/consciousness works.) The only thing blocking you from truly stepping into and becoming this person is your refusal to see yourself as this person. Is YOU clinging on to old versions of yourself. Is YOU, not forgiving yourself for things of the past. Is YOU, not living in the present moment. Is YOU, staying stuck in victim mode and not realizing or understanding that moment by moment, you have the opportunity to start over. To BE, DO and HAVE ANYTHING your heart desires. And what your heart desires? Is who you truly are at a soul level. It's your soul gently knocking at the door of your heart to open the f*ck up and MERGE with it. BEcome it. Become your higher self.
4. YOUR DESIRES ARE FROM GOD.
Your desires are from God/Source/Your Higher Self. They were given to you for a reason. You are allowed to desire. You are allowed to FOLLOW your desires. In fact, your desires lead you to your purpose. HOW else would anything get done in the world?? Why would our purpose be found in things we despise doing??
So often we are taught our desires are bad, wrong, or that we must 'get real.' Well this is about as REAL as it gets, babyyy. Learn to say YES and trust your damn soul. It knows the way. Say YES to what feels good. To what lights you up. To what brings you joy. Knowing and trusting that THAT IS YOUR PATH. YOUR path.
5. EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS WITHIN YOU.
When you are following what is WITHIN you... how could you ever feel like an imposter?? Hmm??
Sure, you have others acting as mirrors, showing you what is possible, giving you inspiration, giving you 'permission' to show up in a certain way, to follow your desires, your vision. And you will see parts of yourself in these other badasses doing the damn thing online. But these people are just ASPECTS of yourself. Reflecting back to you the badass Goddess that lies dormant within YOU. So stop feeling like you are 'copying' others and start OWNING who the f*ck you are. Being inspired by others is normal, natural. How else would we be able to tap into our greatness if others didn't come before us and give us a glimpse of what is possible? And yes of course, along the way you will also carve your own path. It's a constant game of fine tuning our path by turning inward and listening to soul guidance. Just don't be afraid to be inspired by others along the way ;)
6. YOU ARE YOU. THAT IS YOUR SUPERPOWER.
You are [Insert First name] Motherf*cking [Insert Last name].
You didn't come here to play small.
You are an aspect of God/Source manifested into the physical.
There is only ONE you.
OWN THAT SH*T.
Take back your power.
Take a deep breath in.
You feel that?
That is source.
That is pure positive energy.
That is life force baby.
Running through your body and coursing through your veins.
You are mothereffing powerful and it's time you look in the mirror and OWN IT BABYYYY.
I love you.
And everything you need is within you.
