Do you believe you are worthy of getting everything you desire out of this life? The first step of manifesting your abundance is knowing that you deserve it beyond a shadow of a doubt. There is no place for imposter syndrome in manifestation. Unfortunately, most people still experience these feelings of unworthiness before and during their manifestation journey. Keep reading to learn how to overcome imposter syndrome and start living the life you were destined for.
What is imposter syndrome?
Imposter syndrome describes feeling undeserving of your accomplishments, like you are a fraud soon to be discovered.
Do you remember the childhood phrase, “liar, liar, pants on fire?” The adulthood equivalent is imposter syndrome. It taunts you by asking, “Who are you to say you can do this business? Who are you to say you can break through this chain? Who are you to say you can become successful at doing what you do naturally?”
The word “imposter,” and the concept in and of itself is insulting. How can you pretend to be what you actually are?
What causes imposter syndrome?
There is a root cause to your imposter syndrome.
From discussions with my coaching clients, I’ve noticed that these instances can cause imposter syndrome:
- Comparing yourself to others
- Concern about outside judgment
- Indecisiveness of whether you’re making the right decision
- Fear of failure or success
More often, the feeling stems from general fear. But it’s not a fear of the person you see in the mirror. You’re scared that you’re right about your worthiness and life’s purpose, and you’re worried you’ll never do anything about it. Remember, fear is a liar.
How imposter syndrome can help you manifest
Your imposter syndrome is a way of keeping you protected, small, and scared. It’s not your friend. However there is a way to use it to your advantage. You can use your imposter syndrome to say, “I’ll show them,” to display you were always destined to do this.
When you feel these negative emotions, take it as a sign to discover where it is that you feel incomplete. You’ve found yourself in a comfortably numb place, and it’s just the right spot for your angels to push you into something uncomfortable. They’re going to keep pushing you. If you ignore it long enough, they will remove everything until you’re forced to step into your purpose.
Let’s say you’ve started to step into that purpose and your angels are showing you just how far you can go. Suddenly, all these triggers, like imposter syndrome, fear, and lack will try to start pulling you back down. These instances should push you further because they’re highlighting the contrast between winning (where you’re headed) and losing (a life rooted in fear and doubt).
That imposter syndrome will test and motivate you to stay in a state where you won’t slip back into the unworthy mindset. And the more you get to know yourself, the more you find your own motivation to stay off that hamster wheel of fear and doubt, and the less you feel imposter syndrome.
How to know you’re not an imposter
In your heart of hearts, from the moment you were born, you were designed with this soul and team of angels to weed through the muck and overcome it. Every situation and relationship in your adulthood had value. They helped you understand that up until this moment, you were an imposter.
When you’re faking it and acting like you’re living a life — that’s when you’re an imposter. If you’re out there hustling and really trying, and it’s still not working, are you really in your authentic state? No, you’re not.
But when it scares you to death to think that you won’t do it? Then you’re probably in the real place of truth. And the moment you give yourself permission to try to do things differently and believe in your own intuition, you’re no longer an imposter. You’re not an imposter when you go after the things that come naturally. Now, you’re not delusional. Now, you are talented. Now, there is no failure. Now, you are worthy of this life.
4 Steps to Overcome Imposter Syndrome
1. Decide that you are now going to do or die.
You have nothing to lose. What do you mean when you say you’re not worthy of it? You are a powerful and majestic divine light being. You are not being led down the wrong path, and if you were, it wouldn’t be confirmed by the opinions of others. That low vibrational state of your worthiness is not the truth.
If the only thing holding you back is fear of what other people will think, here’s some redeeming news: Everyone is an egomaniac, looking at themselves wondering if you’re looking at them. They don’t care if you’re doing it or not. That idea represents your own insecurities peeking through. You’re deciding that somebody else’s opinion of you is more important.
But if everyone was blind, and no one could see you, and everything was working out, would you feel like a fake? No, you wouldn’t. You would be so happy. You would wish everybody could see you in your full abundance.
Because the only person who needs to see your worthiness is YOU.
2. Step into your authentic light
I challenge you to take one step into your beautiful abundance. When you do, it will shine all around you.
So, step away from the hamster wheel of fear, doubt, and lack, and step into the light. It makes sense to want to control everything, but you can’t be in control of anything. You might as well try to step into a new energetic vibration.
Yes, for the first 30 seconds when you walk into the room, you’ll wonder if people are doubting you and whether you should be there. In those moments, remind yourself that you’re there, aren’t you?
Everybody around you doesn’t want you to step into your purpose. Because if you actually do it and succeed, they’ll know they’re being small. They know their life could have more and that they’re worthy, but they’re scared. You were scared, too, but you did it. Be that divine example.
Trust me, it’s not going to be easy to get to that full potential you see. You may have to step out despite any fear, anxiety, and judgment. After all, the more you desire, the more muck you have to go through to get to the vibrational point of your abundance.
Step out on that little light until it grows into a bright light and becomes as vibrant as the sun. Take that in and repeat this to yourself: I am worthy. I am limitless abundance. I will take one step today.
Meditation is key to overcoming imposter syndrome. This practice allows you to shut everyone’s opinion off – even those you value the most. When you quiet the outside noise, you’ll be able to connect with your angels. They are just waiting to show you everything that is available on the other side. We’re in an unlimited reality, after all. You are worthy of this. You’re not faking it.
4. Get ready to receive
Everybody is a great giver. Everyone wants to motivate or help somebody. But what about receiving. Are you as excited about receiving your abundance? You have to be an excellent receiver. Don’t tap into the energy of lack. That’s not what manifestors do.
Repeat this mantra: It is so exciting to receive all of the abundance that’s coming towards me.
Because if you can’t get hyped up about all the things that you’re going to create as you step into your most authentic self, then you’re really never going to do it.
Most importantly, remember these three things when you’re trying to overcome imposter syndrome:
- That desire that is calling you isn’t a fantasy for when you retire, it’s the truth.
- I know you’re worthy, do you? When I look at you, all I can see is your beautiful bright light and how far you will go. I see how truly happy you will be. I know that your team of angels and guides are surrounding you right now. You are majestic, benevolent, adored, loved, and protected.
- You’ve gotta keep pushing forward. But if you’re trying and nothing seems to work, you’re probably pushing too hard. Enjoy your journey in the creator state without worrying about how it will happen and focus on how you’ll feel when it does.
If you’re not waking up every day believing in what you’re doing with so much joy in your life, you’re the imposter right now. You don’t have to sit there and believe in the lies you’ve been telling yourself: I’m not worthy. I’m not good enough. I’m not talented enough. I don’t belong here. I don’t have the money. I don’t have the connections. How is this going to happen?
All it takes is one step to change your reality. One step helps you turn your desires into a divine light energy that is more powerful than the sun itself.
