Ep. 59: De-Shaming + Embracing The Initiate



It’s early spring and on InnerSpark’s Wheel, it’s a representation of The Initiate archetype. This is the essence of beginnings, newness, studentship, childlike wonder and innocence, birth, air, insight, the mind, inspiration, dawn, hope, youth.

The role of studentship and beginner is a catalyst for growth and expansion – if we allow it. Yet the truth is, it feels scary and shameful to not know, to need help, to be a beginner.

Many responses to being a beginner are to hide out, feel small, feel ashamed, internalize your areas for growth to mean something negative about you, feel like you have to do it all and figure it all out on your own, avoid asking for help, increasingly grow bitter and resentful towards yourself and others, and more… it becomes feedback loop of shame that keeps you stuck and unable to progress along the intended growth process of your life.

Join me as we get into de-shaming and embracing the power of being a beginner, why that can feel scary, how that shows up, and how to overcome it. Let’s dive into it!
