… doesn’t keep you safe.

It only provides you with a false sense of security.

It’s much easier for us to play in the superficial realm of life and never go deeper. We skim the surface of our consciousness and get stuck in the matrix playing out materiality and confusing it with progress.

Prioritizing material possessions as a symbol of success only keeps the true rewards of a “life well-lived” hidden from sight. The fact is that we are here to grow and evolve our souls, not get sucked into the vortex of materiality. The focus on material possessions as a means of seeking fulfillment only keeps us bound and trapped in lower karmic programming. It makes us a slave to our possessions. It doesn’t represent a true sense of abundance, which only comes from within, never outside you.

The truth is the deeper you go in your evolution, the darker it can get. Sometimes it’s hard to see the bottom. It doesn’t mean you’re going to drown; it only means there are shadows lurking beneath you that may need to be brought to the surface before you can get to the next level. Most people fear those depths. They fear going into that darkness because it’s painful to transmute. They prefer to stay in the shallow end where they feel safer. But the shallow end doesn’t keep you safe. It only makes the deep-end scarier.

At one point in our lives, we find ourself adrift in the deep-end without a raft. But once we are there and we have brought up to the surface our shadows, we find a serenity in the deep-end that we never knew possible. Fulfillment lies in the deep-end of life. Living in the shallow never gets you to the depths of yourself. You have to be willing to lose everything in order to gain more than you could have ever imagined. It’s called the dark night of the soul. That is the secret to personal fulfillment; it’s lies in the deep-end. How deep are you willing to go to find yourself?

… you have to let them grow.

In life, expansion is key. You can’t get to the next level without moving through the level you’re in.

Progress in life is about embracing a feed forward system, not backwards. So in essence, you have to grow out of something, not hide from it. It has to be surmounted.

Expanding out of something means you have managed to rise above it and integrate its wisdom. It’s a feed forward of intelligent learning and it builds off the very problem you’ve struggled with.

Escaping your problems is akin to constricting and giving up, while allowing the problem to still exist. It may provide you with a momentary sense of relief, but since there’s been no expansion, the problem always comes back larger than life.

Expansion raises your vibration and escapism lowers it. You can’t get to a higher level by adopting a lower level strategy.

Problems cannot be escaped, they have to be expanded through. Expansion (transformation) is a higher vibrational game. It requires that you face the problem head on, surmount it, and use it as a springboard into higher levels of consciousness. Are you ready for expansion?

challenges the fabric of who you are.

Imposter syndrome only challenges those who are brave enough to take themselves out of the matrix. Those are the individuals who no longer want to work for the corporate machine. They are those who know their hearts and know that their life’s work is higher than sitting in an oppressed cubicle day in and day out.

These beings take a chance on themselves.

They follow a higher calling.

They risk putting their reputations on the line.

They risk financial ruin.

Why?

Because they believe in something higher. Those who dream about being something greater in the world or contributing something greater to the world are those who are susceptible to imposter syndrome. Those who dream and aim higher, soar. Those who accept the status quo, stay safe but never rise into their highest potential.

You only doubt yourself when you challenge the system. Everyone feels like an imposter when they are trying to break out of a mold that suffocates them.

You have to really believe in yourself to go to bat for yourself. You have to be willing to fight the notion that you are somehow less than someone else who doesn’t bat for themselves.

Imposter syndrome challenges the very fabric of who you are. Down to the core. If you’re not strong enough to believe in yourself, you will never step into greatness. Imposters buck the system and take it down so they can create their own place within it. We are all secretly imposters who are trying to create something out of nothing and we only feel like imposters because it has never been done before the way we are doing it. And because we know that the something we are creating is something the world has been waiting for. #beanimposter
