Are You Afraid to Shine? Self- Sabotage and The Fear of Being Seen

Are you afraid to Shine?

It’s amazing how we sabotage our success because we are afraid of being seen, of standing out.

Why do we do this to ourselves? It’s individual. I would have to be in sessions with you to explore your particular reasons why. But common reasons are because we feel unworthy, or you carry shame about who you are and what you do. Old wounds and family messages can make us not want to stand out. Many times we fear success and the changes it could bring to our life. To our family, our spare time.

And one way we sabotage that is by not taking action to reach our goals.

Many people have a dreamy view of achievement. How many times has someone told you to “set the intention and the Universe will sit up and take notice and deliver your dream to your door.” It is certainly true the divine has our back but we do still need to take action to create our future.

Having goals without creating even the smallest steps leaves achieving that goal up to chance. As Debbie Ford said; “Prayer without action is dreaming.” Unless you set goals and holding yourself accountable you will set yourself up for failure and fuel the feelings of being unworthy and not good enough.

I know what it is like to be on that hamster wheel that takes up a lot of energy but that ultimately, leads us no where. It is vital to our dreams and goals that we explore why we sabotage themselves and guide ourselves to take actions that will lead us to our goals. 

Because we are all works in progress and there is always work to be done.

How do you sabotage yourself? Are you afraid to step fully into that bright light? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

“I Don’t Have the Time” Is Really Saying “I’m Not Worth It”

Not Enough Time Really Is Saying “I’m Not Worth It”

Make the time for what is truly important

“Not enough time” to create is the excuse for creative souls.

Not enough time to ” take care of myself” and walk their talk, practice what they preach for the healers, for those in the Holistic fields.

Not enough time to eat right when you want to lose weight and get healthy.

Too busy to do things, go places, meet people when you want  to create a relationship in your life.

Not enough time to relax.

To exercise.

To be with a friend.

To paint.

To get energy work.

To be intimate.

To play with the dog/cat.

To create the business or the life you want.

These are excuses for everyone really. And the excuse we use whenever we want to achieve something, or do something we say is important but don’t.

All of us have the same 24 hours. Including Oprah, Richard Branson, etc.

Bottom line: If it’s important enough to you, you will make the time. If not, you will make an excuse.

So, why do you make an excuse?

For example, why do you not find the time  for painting, for example, when you say you want  a successful art career, or you find joy in painting?

There are many reasons why we don’t do the things we claim are important to us.

I would have to work with you personally to guide you in finding exactly what is holding you back from doing the things you not only know you need to do, but want to do.

But regardless of what our personal shadows are around it, excuses are resistance.

And resistance is born from fear, anxiety or complacency.

And the truth of it is, you are declaring to yourself, to those around you, your peers, your colleagues, your family and friends, and to the Universe, that you are not worthy of your best life. Your dreams. That you are not important enough to make the time.

My friends, the day we leave this planet, there will be something on our to-do list that is mundane and not important. Dishes, laundry, bills. Some task left undone.

But when you leave, will that be what is important to you?

Will those things you did not have the time for, that you created excuses around be the very things you regret not having accomplished?

Would you like to declare to the Universe and to your life that you are worth your dreams? That you are worth the live you were born to live? That what you have to offer the world is important?

Then you must get out of your own way.

Make time for what is important. Recognize when you are creating excuses. Find out what is creating your resistance. Make your life an excuse free zone.

If you’d like to explore how to make your choices based on what your divinely inspired purpose is and not based on the “I’m not good enough” , the old tapes and old programs. If you’d like to create your own tools, if you’d like to embrace  that you are good enough and worthy enough just as you are RIGHT NOW and would like to start the  10 Week Transformational Process To Move Toward Your Goals and Vision you can contact me by using the form below.
