I feel super uncomfortable this week.

Every day it takes me quite some time to get back to my core, and feel like myself again.

And not just once a day. 

Several times per day.

Old fears and pains show up, and I diligently work through them.


Because none of those fears are new. 

And feeling this inner pressure and discomfort isn’t new either.

It’s what I always feel when I step into a bigger version of myself.

Which is what always happens when I step into a bigger version of my business.


I’m not the only one this happens to. The same thing happens to YOU, too.


Because growth and change ALWAYS trigger your doubts and fears.

Your pains and wounds.

Your patterns and behaviors that hold you back.


And when you step into your truest dream, the next layer of your soul’s purpose, your biggest desire?

This happens on an even bigger scale.

It’s normal.

And it’s THE number one reason so many people tiptoe around their biggest dreams instead of saying YES! to them – and backing that yes up with decisions and actions that are aligned with it.


But fears don’t have to hold you back. And inner blocks and obstacles can melt away.



First, by recognizing that fears showing up does NOT mean you’re on the wrong track and should turn back.

On the contrary!

It means you’re growing and changing – and everything that could potentially block your ongoing growth shows up so you can CLEAN IT UP and move forward.


Second, by realizing that fears don’t grow bigger when you look at them (which is what you’re scared of and why you usually try to numb them or distract yourself from them) – they actually get SMALLER when you look at them.


Third, by making your dreams bigger than your fears. Keep shifting your focus back to what you desire instead of what you fear.


Fourth, by realizing that thoughts and fears are only energy. They don’t have any more power over you than you give them.


Fifth, by not judging or criticizing yourself. Don’t get mad or think you should finally be done with this same old shit already! It’s here. It shows up so you can clear it. There’s nothing wrong with you. And you can keep moving forward if you so choose.


Sixth, by getting help. You don’t have to go through it alone. Find a friend, mentor or coach to help you.

(Maybe I can be your guide – I’m pretty damn good at helping people break through their obstacles and fears.)


Seventh, by creating something out of or based on your feelings.

Creating is healing. For me, writing about it ALWAYS works. Maybe it’s painting for you. Or dancing. Or origami. It doesn’t matter what form it takes. ALL forms of creation are healing.


The main thing to remember about fears is this:

You CAN move forward in spite of them.

You DON’T have to take leaps you’re not ready for – baby steps are perfect, too! 

And YOU are the boss over your mind and your fears – not the other way around.


If you’re feeling as uncomfortable as I am this week: congratulations!

Your next level is calling you. 

You’re on the verge of a breakthrough.

You’re changing.

You’re growing.

It’s all good.

You’ll get through it.

Just go inside with a curious and kind mind, and explore what’s going on exactly.
