There are times I wonder, “What the heck am I doing with my work? Am I making a difference? Am I wasting my life and money for a dream that can’t be manifest? I should quit!”
I love what I do. I believe so strongly in the power of transformation from shadow work, BUT… my inner critic can pop up and have me doubt my value. It says things like:
And in these moments, everything feels hard and unattainable. Ever feel that? Like your efforts don’t matter? That you don’t matter?
After my book release and its success I felt great. I had accomplished something I never thought possible. I wrote a friggin’ book! Holy Shit!
And yet, the “Now what?” voice kicked in. I began to question my next steps and I heard a voice in my head: In this world with so many personal growth speakers, is there a place for you? What do you have to offer?
I know that voice. It is trying to keep me from falling flat on my back and getting disappointed.
Luckily, I know how to deal with the voice that tries to stop me.
I honored that part. It was strategizing to keep me safe. Then I enrolled my healthy Magician Self to get a clear strategy. Then I invited my Sovereign Self to bless me and support my vision. I then connected to my Lover Self, my little girl, and took care of her so she wasn’t so scared. And then I got my Warrior Self to set some healthy limits with my timeline. My to do list was cray cray!

Another cool thing happened…
Just when you need a little TLC from the universe, angels appear.
I got a message from my mom that truly had me feel soul kissed.
A friend of hers expressed how much she was getting from the book and said things that really touched me. Her words were a great reminder that in addition to knowing shadow work, I bring my own special Junie Moon sauce.
Do you realize you have your own special sauce that you bring to the table of life?
I am lucky to have had that message. You may not have people reminding you how special you are. I want to right now.
You matter. You are special. You are unique and there is no one like you. Seriously! Take a moment and breathe this message in. Remind yourself that you matter. You make a difference.
I am happy these are fleeting moments of fear and that my inner critic’s volume is way lower than the past. I still can feel the hit of my not-good-enough-itis kicking in and the story doesn’t have to end there.
If you have a mean inner voice that has you question your brilliance, beauty and spark, I invite you to engage with your Inner Sovereign and get that Inner Critic to chill out!
