Let yourself be seen!
We all have tremendous gifts, incredible strengths, and so much to share.
Let your light shine
Yet many of us hide. We dim our light.
We're afraid to be seen.
We're afraid to be judged.
We're afraid to fail.
We're afraid to be seen as failures.
In short, we're afraid to be seen.
Oh man, can you imagine how AMAZING it would be to let go of this? Can you imagine what your life would be like?
Just imagine it for a second!
Ask yourself these questions:
What would you do?
Who would you be?
What would your relationships be like? What would your work be like?
What would you let yourself do?
I gotta be completely honest with you and tell you that my issues with being seen were so crippling! I avoided being seen like it was the plague.
This impacted SO MUCH of my life.
~ My relationships with family, friends, and significant others: I stopped myself from being authentic because I didn't want to be judged and/or rejected.
~ My writing. I was afraid to be fully seen as a writer, so even though I had a completed manuscript and had written TONS of content for my courses, I didn't put it out there!
~ My photography. Pretty similar to the above. I found it so difficult to be seen as a photographer!
~ My business. Oh boy. The list here is long! Not doing workshops, either in person or online. Not sending out consistent newsletters or blogs. Not following up.
This being seen issue cost me money and confidence. It created stress and self-judgment.
And I finally saw the light! I saw exactly what it was costing me, and I realized that it didn't have to be that way!
I started leading workshops. I published my nonfiction book and submitted my fiction to publishers. I got myself an Instagram account and started posting—and selling!—my photography. I allowed myself to be authentic and real in my relationships.
Allowing myself to be seen and letting go of the fear of being seen has been transformative. It has changed my life...and my clients' lives too.
I want you to experience this magical awesomeness, because, well, we all need you to shine your light too! I KNOW you have tremendous gifts. Please let us see them!
So starting TODAY, Monday, July 30th, for ten incredible and powerful days, we're going to experiment with being seen, with stepping out of our comfort zones and allowing ourselves to be vulnerable!
Why is this important?
Because every single one of us needs everyone's light to shine.
Because you have profound and incredible gifts...and we all need you to fully express them!
Because when you dim your light, we all suffer.
Because you DESERVE to fully express your awesomeness!
And this is a big huge deal.
You will be honoring how incredible you are. You will be going against the grain of keeping yourself small so as to avoid failure or judgment or making people uncomfortable by shining your light.
When you let yourself be seen, you are taking the radical stance that being seen is awesome...and that you are worthy of being seen. (Which, I might add, you are! You are deciding that it is more important for you to shine your light and express your gifts rather than let fears about what people might think or might say keep you in a little box.
So for 10 days, you get to try out a different paradigm. You get to do something different. And you get to see how you feel when you turn the dial on your awesomeness UP...and let us see you in your brilliance!
Based on working with my clients and my own personal experience, I can tell you with confidence that this is a good thing. :)
Now, perhaps this is confronting. Maybe it's utterly terrifying! Perhaps you’re reading this and saying, “Um, no. This sounds weird and I’m not sure I can do it!” And you might want to bow out...before we've even started!
Here's what I say to that:
Don't let that habitual way of thinking keep you from trying out something that might be awesome. (And, I might add, a habitual way of thinking and being that doesn't feel good and doesn't really serve you!)
Allow yourself to try something new. Allow yourself to be radical. Allow yourself to be seen and fully loved and fully supported.
What’s going to happen:
You’ll get an email every day with a tool and a challenge for you to experiment with being seen. We'll explore what might hold us back, how to overcome it, and we'll take powerful steps action steps to let ourselves be seen!
I promise, I'm not going to make you do anything that will implode your relationships or get you fired. :)
Instead, we're going to take a dive into what you truly value and what makes your heart sing...and we'll support each other in taking steps to make that happen. That means asking for help and support, owning your presence and claiming your space in the world, and beginning to acknowledge the magnificence that is you!
$50, my dear, and if you do allllll of the action steps from this moment on, YOU'LL GET IT ALLLLL BACK!
Yup, you read that right. You do EVERY action step in the challenge and you get your money back.
I'm doing this because it would be way, way, WAY too easy for you to sign up and then do nothing. That's not why I'm doing running this challenge! I'm running this because I want every single one of us to shine!
Starting TODAY, on Monday, July 30th you'll get an email a day with an action step to help you shine your light and let yourself be seen.
You’ll also have access to a fantastic Facebook community of people on this journey with you!
At the end, if you do all the action steps, you'll get your money back. :)

Q: Eryka, will you make me run naked down the street?
Q: Eryka, will you make me give a presentation in my underwear?
Q: Eryka, will you make me ask my boss for a $75 trillion raise?
Well...this challenge might make it easier for you to do that. :)
Q: Eryka, will you torture me and make me do things that are really hard?
Torture is a strong word. Stepping out of our comfort zones—especially with something like deciding not to hide and show our beautiful strengths and gifts and our innate awesomeness—can be hard. Hopefully it won't be torturous, though! All of us have your back, just like you'll have our back in taking ourselves to the next level.
Q: Eryka, who is this for?
This is for anyone of any gender who is tired of hiding their awesomeness and wants to step into their power.
Q: Eryka, what do I do if I can't afford the accountability deposit?
Reach out to me. We'll make it doable for you!
So let's allow ourselves to be seen and watch as our energy goes higher, our inner critics get quieter, and we take our lives to the next level!
