Self-Doubt

“If you hear a voice within you saying you cannot paint, then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” - Vincent Van Gogh



As a former chronic self-doubter, 



I know that self-doubt is one of the greatest barriers to living a fulfilled life. 



If we think about it in terms of energy, it’s on the mood hoover scale! 



When we doubt ourselves, it quite literally drains our energy. 



It’s a bit like doing the Hokey Cokey….but not quite as fun! 



IN, OUT & SHAKE it all about!



The spark of an idea for something great – I’m IN! 



then the thoughts & feelings start cropping up to rain on your parade – I’m OUT! 



(interestingly the word 'out' fits into 'doubt')



Ensued by confusion & frustration. 



Essentially your energy is jumbled & shaking about; oscillating, like being on a see saw, back and forth. 



You can even feel like this once you have decided & moved forward; 



Go, Stop, Go, Stop! 



It is exhausting! 



Ever tried riding a horse? 



Same thing applies to nervous riders....



they give the signal for the horse to move forward, 



then in comes a bit of fear / panic, maybe feeling out of control, so they pull on the reins. 



Very confusing for the horse & no wonder it can’t move properly. 



So having doubt is literally like trying to ride a horse with the brakes on! 



Much of this emotional energy is taking place at a subconscious level. 



You learn a lot about the disconnect between mind & body through riding horses, 



what we THINK you are doing right, doesn’t work because we are not fully aligned. 



The best way to overcome self-doubt is to actively work on it, 



the key part being - from the inside out. 



I have found in my work & research is that the people who suffer with self-doubt actually fear the enormity of their potential & are putting up a barrier to their own success. 



Aren’t we just fascinating creatures?! 



I have the tools to transform self-doubt, at the level of mind, body and spirit. 



For now, re-frame your Self-Doubt as an indicator of your enormous potential! 



That has a completely different energy to it! 



Good Vibes, Amanda G
