Have you ever felt like a fraud? Like you're not good enough or your successes are due to luck or circumstance? If so, you're not alone. Many women feel this way, especially high-achieving women. But why? And more importantly, what can we do about it?
In this post, I'll explore 5 reasons why magnificent women hide their light and offer some advice on how to overcome these feelings. Stay tuned!
We put so much time and energy into crafting our public image. We want everyone on the outside to see us as smart, capable and successful. Yet, this fear halts many women to even think of themselves this way, let alone share it with others. What will people say? Will they reject or criticise us?
We often think in extremes - either something is perfect or a total disaster. If everything isn't amazing and fascinating, then it must not matter at all. So we don't share our work or insights with others because we feel like it has to be perfect — and in our mind, we're far from perfect.
There’s a reason so many women feel called to serving others – while also being terrified of stepping into the spotlight. It's because, at a fundamental level, we understand that our scars are what make us valuable to other people - but we're also terrified that showing those scars to people will make us look less.
We've been taught to suppress our needs and desires in favour of taking care of others. How often do you take the time to connect with yourself? To take the time to connect with your higher self?
Women are burning out in unprecedented numbers - it was bad enough before the last couple of years, but now after endless months of work-from-home and homeschooling, most women are too exhausted to even start to think about their ideal lives. They're just trying to get through the day!
At High Priestess, we get it - we're a team of women from different walks and stages of life. And what we've found in our own lives is that often, trying to take "massive" actions towards creating our ideal lives, is just too much with everything else going on.
That's why we've developed the 5 Minute Ritual email series.
Each week, we'll send you out a new, easy 5-Minute-Or-Less Ritual that will help you feel more grounded, more present - more yourself.
Tried and tested with our own team - these rituals are guaranteed to be easy and joyful.

If it was as easy as just being more confident, of course we'd do that! Instead, we believe that our choices are either to "fake it until we make it" or to accept a life that's less than we deserve.
There's a reason we love movies like "Eat, Pray, Love" and "Wild" - because they're the stories of every day women who had the courage to step out of their every day reality and go on a journey of self-discovery. While we'd all love to drop everything and head to Italy for a month, here's the thing:
None of those women really needed to go away to find themselves. Because the journey of self-discovery - whether you're in Italy or Sydney - is completely internal.
When women truly come home to themselves, their magnificence shines so brightly, they can't hide it - and they no longer want to.
And that's why we're so passionate about our mission here at High Priestess - because we know that when women find their light, it's not just them who benefits. It's the people they love, it's their communities - it's the whole world.
Developed by busy burned out women, for busy burned out women, these rituals are simple ways to bring the joy and connection back into your life.
They can be used by any woman seeking more connection with herself, the people around her, the world - and to her own practice.
We've made them simple - because we know exactly how busy and overwhelming your life can be.

Words fail me! From the moment I opened my package, mind blown.. The fragrance of the box, the perfect packaging & attention to detail was beyond 1st class. Every single item is amazing. Quality is fantastic & way above expectations. I have never been so excited to receive a parcel. Thank you so much for an amazing creation.
Double boxed, yet still the glorious scent emanated from it. I had to restrain myself from ripping it open in the doorway until I got to the table. Once there, I opened the outer box, closed my eyes and breathed in before the goodie box was undone. Wow, just wow! Everything was perfect, just perfect. These are boxes to be treasured, as well as used. Highly recommended.
