Isn't it terrifying to start something new? To look at others that already know this, and think "How am I suppose to be that good?". People forget to enjoy the beginning part of a journey of something new, we just want to "get it". Being new at work, and having to ask all those questions, getting to know a new person, when it's new it's easy to feel overwhelmed and then we do not know what to do. I have that feeling constantly, the imposter syndrome comes up. How can we move past it?
Yesterday was another evening of our Sacred Sisterhood Moon Workshops, a time to gather as women. To come together and create. To hold space for others is amazing, and at the same time terrifying. To put yourself out there, to start something new, to be a beginner at yet another thing.
There is other that can do it better, there is others that knows more, there are other out there who are masters - Who am I to think that I can do this?
You know what, everyone started somewhere. I am not going to stop because I am not a master at holding moon circles, or workshops. It's a journey that we are doing together, with these women.
So when you are thinking that you need to be at a certain place before starting whatever you have in mind, then think again. You will learn along the way, you will learn from your mistakes, you will learn from other peoples mistakes.You will learn from masters and other teachers, you will create you own thing from the lessons your learn.
So yes, every time I hold space for others, when I help others on their healing journey - the imposter syndrome shows up. Who am I to tell others what they should do, who am I to teach people about this and that, who am I to say that I have dreams I dream do come true? Well, I don't tell others what to do, I help them find their way, and their truth. I teach others what I have learned so they then can implement that in their life, and teach others, so they can pay if forward. I don't know why and how I can see things in my dreams before they happen, but I do know that we are all connected. I know that we all can see more than we think we can, I know we all can do more than what we think we can.
I am just happy to be a person that dares to follow my dreams, and that i can (and want) to hold space for other women (and men). You will find things that I am not good at, (there are plenty!) you might feel like you know more then me (that is amazing! Please share all of you!), that is OK.
I am proud to start on a new journey, and this is just the beginning. I embrace being a beginner at this, at holding workshops and sacred circles. Because you know what? I am a master at loving others, and inspiring people to be the best version of themselves.
Sending love to everyone that is scared of starting something new, it's terrifying. But no one become a master by doing something once, it takes practice. So go out, and start somewhere!
