Ep. 29. Being Courageous is in our Blood | Releasing Self-Doubt and Shame
Welcome back! I’m back from my month-long hiatus.. I’m learning that inconsistency is not a problem as long as I’m committed so I’ve been committed to other things like rest, my yoga training and spending time with family at the moment so thank you for allowing me to step away for a bit but I’m excited to be back! As some of you may know, this Summer has been very active! In the last several weeks I’ve had new career opportunities which had my full attention and my sister moved in with us for the Summer so I’ve been trying to spend more time with her and Lupo. If you’re familiar with my journey I’m the oldest daughter of immigrant parents and recently I've been prioritizing nurturing my inner-child and reparenting my self by redefining the narratives that no longer serve me. Shame and self-doubt that was something I carried within me for a long time. Being called things like, chillona, sin verguenza and mandona kept me playing small and develop a fear of visibility. In the last couple of years, I've been able to turn these labels into my super power.  By moving through the discomfort and leaning on my support systems, I've learned to release it in order to step into my most confident and unapologetic self.  Throughout the episode, I share tools on how I’ve been able to move through self-doubt and release the shame along my self-discovery and healing journey as a first-gen Latina entrepreneur ✨ Low sense of identity, people pleasing, fear of failure, lack of boundaries and comparison were symptoms of self-doubt that kept me me in my comfort zone and missing out on opportunities for so long. I hope this inspires you to keep going and celebrating your magic x 🦋 If any of this resonated and you want to learn more about rediscovering your most authentic self in order to show up more unapologetic on and offline, I invite you to apply for my 1:1 coaching program here:  https://calendly.com/itzycanales/claritycall?month=2022-07 Connect with me on social: @growwiththeflowpodcast @itzycanales CHECK BACK FOR NEW EPISODES EVERY OTHER THURSDAY!

Ep. 28. Disempowering Imposter Syndrome
I'm baaaaack and I'm coming in hot with this episode where I share my experience with imposter syndrome as a women of color in the influencer industry, the coaching industry, and my full-time marketing role in higher-ed. Imposter syndrome is a common term used to describe thoughts and feelings of inadequacy and inferiority despite evident success. But what imposter syndrome fails to take into account systemic oppression failing a group of individuals instead of the other way around. When I was able to bring awareness to this, I was able to develop tools and beliefs that helped me disempower it, lead with a growth mindset and continue taking up space, unapologetically, even in those spaces that were not designed with people like me in mind. I hope this episode inspires you to move with a little more confidence in your everyday life and recognize that a little self-doubt is normal. Especially when you're breaking ceilings and disrupting the status norms. Because the truth is, no one really knows what they’re doing. We're all doing things afraid and insecure but that's not a reason to not give yourself the credit that you deserve and honor the state of growth. If you believed you were good enough today, what would you do differently? What would I do if I knew I may fail and STILL be okay?

Ep. 26. Navigating Adulthood, Business and a 9-5 with ADHD and Anxiety
Int his episode, I share my experience of being a 9-5 professional and entrepreneur with ADHD. Work in my 9-5 has always been challenging for multiple reasons: Being a WOC in a predominantly white space Having ADHD and anxiety and depression as part of those symptoms Being multi-passionate and creating a side-hustle that fuels my creativity You mix all of that together and some days you want to choose to surrender. The thing is that these systems like higher education and a typical corporate job, among many other areas, were not designed for our way of thinking.

BONUS Ep 22. How to Rediscover Your Most Confident Self in your Everyday Life
On this episode, I share tangible to tools on how I built confidence in my everyday life. by taking up space in spaces I felt safe, trying things out of my comfort zone, asking for what I needed, following through with the commitments I've made for myself to build self-trust, becoming aware of my thoughts and stories I tell myself and embracing my imperfections.  My imperfections make me human, they make me connected, my life lessons make me qualified to help others, they make me enough and I believe it. I know that perfection is subjective and I can’t control what other people think but I can start by being happy and celebrating where we are right now and the versions of ourselves that got us to today. Everyone started somewhere but what matters is that they started. They pushed through the discomfort and simply trusted that they had their own back. When you start developing this self-trust and internal validation, radical self-love, everything else begins to align and you make more room for the things that serve you.  The right partner, more business opportunities, more financial growth, better friendships and so on.  This sh*t is hard and uncomfortable especially if you've had a wounded past that has taken the self-confidence away from you but everything that you’re working towards ends up outweighing discomfort so keep going and prove it to yourself by the small wins. That’s where the magic is. The more you start listening to yourself, the more aligned you will feel with your highest, most authentic self.

Ep. 17. For Brown Girls with Sharp Edges and Tender Hearts with Prisca Dorcas
Today's Grow with the Flow Podcast guest is one of my favorite writers, storytellers, theologians, feminists, and pit bull fanatics. Prisca Dorcas! Who might I add is a fellow Nicaraguense. Prisca’s bulk of her work is around making education accessible, through storytelling and curating content. She started the platform Latina Rebels in 2013, which today has over 300k organic followers online. She has been featured in Telemundo, Univision, Mitú, amongst many other news outlets. She is unapologetic, angry, and uncompromising about protecting and upholding the stories of Latinx communities. Her new book For Brown Girls with Sharp Edges and Tender hearts is the love letter to women of color we didn’t know we needed.  This book validated all of the healing I’ve spent these last couple of years doing and was the momentum that I needed to keep going. Throughout the episode, we chat about finding your voice and reclaiming your life through story-telling and inner-child healing. We dive into the uncomfortable journey of choosing yourself and setting boundaries with family members. This episode is for everyone who has felt like they've been living under a mask, without a sense of belonging, with strained parent relationships, and with a fear of disappointing others and taking up space. You are not alone and I hope by listening to this, you find even the slightest bit of empowerment to choose yourself each time. I’ll let the episode speak for itself but if you enjoyed it, please  share it on your stories, with a friend and leave a review. Trigger warning: We briefly discuss abortion at 18:05. ps. I am now taking clients for 2022!
