Unveiling Self-Sabotage: Overcoming Fear on the Spiritual Entrepreneurial Journey



As a business owner, especially for those walking the spiritual path, the journey isn't just about business strategies and turnover; it's also an inner journey. I was recently asked by a client who knew what action she needed to take to move her forward but she just wasn't doing it. She asked me 'Why is this?, Why am I not doing the things I need to do to move me forward?" It was such a great question! The answer often lies in the dance between self-sabotage and fear. Let's unravel this and explore three transformative steps to break free from this cycle and propel yourself towards success:



Understanding the Roots of Self-Sabotage:

Self-sabotage often stems from the depths of our subconscious, where fears and limiting beliefs take residence. As spiritual entrepreneurs, our journey of self-discovery unveils layers of conditioning that may hinder our progress. Fear, in its various guises, is often the silent orchestrator behind our self-sabotaging behaviors. It could be the fear of failure, success, judgment, or even the fear of stepping into our true power. Recognising these fears is the first step towards liberation.


Step 1: Cultivate Self-Awareness through Reflection and Inquiry:

To dismantle the fortress of self-sabotage, we must shine the light of awareness on our inner landscape. Set aside time for introspection and journaling. Spend some time in meditation or whatever takes you into a calmer place. Reflect on moments when you've held yourself back and ask yourself: What underlying fears or beliefs are driving these behaviours? Be gentle yet curious as you delve into the depths of your psyche. Through this process of inquiry, patterns will emerge, offering invaluable insights into the roots of your self-sabotage.


Step 2: Embrace Radical Self-Compassion and Healing:

As you uncover the layers of fear and self-sabotage, it's essential to approach yourself with radical self-compassion and understanding. Acknowledge that these patterns were once adaptive mechanisms, born out of a need for protection. Offer yourself the same compassion you would extend to a dear friend navigating similar challenges. Engage in healing practices that resonate with you—whether it's meditation, energy work, or therapy. By nurturing the wounded aspects of yourself, you pave the way for profound transformation.


Step 3: Take Aligned, Empowered Action:

Armed with self-awareness and compassion, it's time to rewrite the script of self-sabotage and step into empowered action. Start small, setting achievable goals aligned with your vision. Break them down into actionable steps and commit to consistent, intentional progress. As you venture beyond your comfort zone, anticipate the whispers of fear and resistance. Lean into them with courage, knowing that growth lies on the other side of discomfort. Celebrate each milestone as a testament to your resilience and newfound freedom.


By unraveling the threads of self-sabotage and fear, we can reclaim our innate power to create and thrive. Embrace this journey wholeheartedly, knowing that every step forward is a testament to your courage and unwavering commitment to growth. We all do this, we all sabotage ourselves in some way but the more we can be aware of when we do this and delve into why we do this and what it is protecting us from, then you can begin to unravel the story and begin to create a new aligned path forward.


May you navigate this path with grace, resilience, and an unwavering belief in your limitless potential that is always within you.


With love and light,
