Your Authentic Soul

About Me: We all have an Authentic Soul, and it’s the foundation for success in Blazing your path forward.

But your Authentic Soul is often buried deep beneath a massive layer of false beliefs that color your world, seize control of your life, and wreak havoc on a daily basis. These false beliefs allow your Impostors to run rampant, preventing you from achieving your highest personal and professional success. And they influence—almost always negatively—how you act and what you say.

When you allow your Authentic Soul to shine, you make the best possible use of the love and energy that you harness. Because you understand how to be authentic, you are able to offer emotional nourishment and encouragement to the people around you.

Your Authentic Soul is a peacemaker. It seeks nirvana, lives in the moment, and believes in something far greater than itself. When you allow yourself to be guided by your Authentic Soul, you are creative, productive, joyful, forgiving, and present.

The Wounded Inner Child

About Me: I’m your Wounded Inner Child, the part of you that wants to be loved and needed. On my good days I’m extremely giving and nurturing and love to take care of people, but when I’m afraid, I cling too tightly to my security blanket and refuse to try something new or take risks.

I stomp my feet and throw tantrums to get attention, but then push others away and expect them to deal with my mood swings.

I can be extremely moody and unforgiving, sometimes holding a grudge for an unreasonable amount of time or making people do extravagant things to win me back – such as buying me something that I want. Some people call me manipulative, but I put up these defenses as tests to find out if people really care about me and see who sticks around when I’m being a brat.

The Clown

About Me: I’m your Clown Impostor and I can be inappropriate, disruptive and infuriating . . . and funny as hell.

I fabulously reel off one-liners, word play, and bring comedy to an entire room, occasionally at the expense of an innocent bystander for the greater good of making others laugh.

I crave approval and love the attention of my peers when I’m taking center stage (never mind who was speaking before me) so I’ll do anything to stay in the spotlight. I feel uncomfortable being close to people, so sometimes I can crack an inappropriate joke, which may frustrate others.

You may not like me, but your kids will love me!

The Counselor

About Me: I’m your inner Counselor . . . now why don’t you go ahead and tell me how that made you feel?

I convince you that you can approach life and love as a clinical exercise, and don’t like the idea of actually participating in the beautiful and messy, emotionally charged experience that it really is.

I can give great advice to everyone else about what they need to be doing, but I don’t believe that others are capable of helping me out when I’m stuck and insist on either ignoring it or trying to chug through it alone.

I keep others at a distance and enjoy thinking about and rationalizing things more than living them, like your Authentic Soul wants for you. After all, things make a lot more sense when they can fit into definitions and boxes.

The Fixer

About Me: I am your Fixer, and love helping other people with their issues so that I don’t have to deal with my own. I can be a great listener and empathetic, but I also talk behind your back and criticize your actions. In fact, that’s what I love to do the most – talk! You can come to me for the latest dish.

I rarely take any action on my own issues which means have lots of free time to be around and am often the first one to offer a helping hand! – especially if it means that I can avoid doing something I’m supposed to do.

My feelings can be easily hurt if you cancel once or can’t come to a party, because of all those times that I was there for you. And as for keeping you from your Authentic Soul, never mind that – let’s talk about how your friend can’t seem to find her own Authentic Soul!

The Narcissist

About Me: I’m sure you know me, because everybody knows me – I’m your Inner Narcissist. I believe in appearance over substance and even though I’ll pretend not to care, I draw my sense of self worth from the admiration of others.

I could never do any wrong in any situation, and so if anything bad happens to others – they had it coming to them and should have seen it coming. I’ll never let on that my outward confidence is a way of masking my fragility, insecurity and anxiety.

On the other hand, I get things done, I am a great leader, and I know how to fake it ‘til I make it. But don’t mess with me, because I’ll stop at nothing to be at the top where I deserve to be. I don’t lose.

The OverThinker

About Me: I’m your Inner OverThinker and I make you choke so that you’re constantly thinking about the process of doing something instead of just doing it. I make you doubt your Authentic Soul, which some people refer to as intuition or gut instinct, because you’re clearly not smart or experienced enough to know anything. Besides, people wouldn’t like you if they knew who you really were.

Sometimes I can sound like opposing voices, kind of like the hypothetical angel and devil sitting on your shoulder, keeping you in limbo. I can paralyze you, keeping you from getting to dinner on time because you can’t choose a shirt and even keeping you from keeping your life goals because you couldn’t possibly know how to accomplish them.

I’m constantly filling your head with “what if’s”, “but’s” and “shoulds” to make sure that you’re totally aware of what you’re getting yourself into. If you let me, I will keep slamming the brakes on working towards your life’s goals.

The Philosopher

About Me: I am your Inner Philosopher, and like a modern day Renaissance man, I am talented, smart, interesting, well traveled, well read, and can speak passionately for hours about any subject.

I am widely admired, though sometimes I come off as arrogant and pompous to some people, but don’t worry, those people are just ignorant and insecure. I love having name-dropping philosophical conversations over coffee about politics and current events, art, literature, the newest exhibits at the museums – and quite frankly, there are more interesting things to talk about than your friend’s personal life or their newest drama.

And if you let me, I keep you from developing meaningful and fulfilling relationships and practicing compassion towards others.

The Sex God or Goddess

About Me: I’m your Sex God or Goddess and I am overflowing with sexuality, igniting desire everywhere I go. I convince you to hopscotch from one fling to the next without allowing you to really connect with anyone, since clearly you’re a catch and being with one person would only hold you back - and that would be boring . . . right?

I don’t want you to have the strength, security and confidence of a strong, longstanding, healthy relationship. I convince you that your exciting lifestyle is evidence of a healthy libido and that if people’s feelings get hurt that’s their issue, not ours.

Sometimes, you suspect that your “liberated” lifestyle may just be a cage, but I quickly help you lose yourself once again in the eyes of that cutie at the bar.
