The imposter. Imposter syndrome and finding your authentic self.

Are you a high achiever, or a successful person who feels like they are an imposter?

I was listening to a podcast by Dr. Sandi Mann and the topic was about The Imposter Syndrome, the syndrome where you are a high achiever, or a successful person feels like they are an imposter.

I often feel this way, who am I to help anyone and achieve such greatness in this world?

I honestly struggled in school, the only classes I did well in were PE and Science. I got older I succeeded in the jobs I did, I always gave 100% of my attention to my workplace.
Then came Yoga, this blew my mind, I actually found my calling! I got certified and started teaching, people would tell my teacher ( who I considered my mentor) how wonderful of a teacher I was, she would praise me, the community would praise me, but always in the back of mind I would think that they were going find out something about me, I was a fraud! But clearly, I was a good yoga instructor.
As years went on my marriage was failing, I was done. The thing’s I heard from him, were thing’s like I’m going to “expose you” “you are a fraud” I thought to myself that he was right! Who am I to do what I love to do for a living and what I felt in my gut to leave him was wrong even he was emotionally abusive, and it got physical at times? He made me fill like I deserved everything he narcissistically through at me.

I just gave my power away!

I had a realization that I was in fact a good person and worthy to live the life I want, and I can achieve anything… I almost had to slap myself! Why was I playing small? I knew that God and the universe is in my favor, the power of me manifesting the life I want can happen! I just needed to reprogram all that I was told… time to reprogram my subconscious mind.

Reprograming:

  • I started to stay away from negative situation, started being in nature, I stayed away from toxic TV like the news and social media.
  • I started a daily affirmation to speak to myself daily.
  • Continued my daily Yoga practice
  •  I also started journaling to express myself in a healthy way without judgment
  • Spending time visualizing beautiful locations
  • Visualizing healthy relationships, especially the one I wanted to be in.
You can have the power of manifesting work for you, here's how!

You must have deep emotional feelings while thinking and visualizing all that you want to manifest in your life, the feeling and knowing that it’s already yours!

All that you want, even the positive self-image is there! You have to believe in yourself and trust that the universe has your back!
