6 Simple Ways to Lessen Anxiety by Raising Your Confidence Part 2

In my two previous blogs Word of the Year and 6 Simple Ways to Increase Your Confidence, I share insights on how this came to be for me. I do not know about you, but I am sick of people talking about things they have never been through.

Anxiety

It is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.

Anxiety can shatter one’s life, relationships and so much more.

The biggest crush is the one to you. I am talking about disappointment. How many times have you tried to not worry- “I’ve got this,” and then whamo, 10 steps backwards. It is a vicious cycle that is often misunderstood.

Misunderstood

Anxiety, Misunderstood, Raising Confidence Magical BlessingsA lack of confidence can bring forth much anxiety and vice versa. Once upon a time, I was fearless, nothing and no one could smash my hopes and dreams. I was a master manifestor and the epitaph of confidence. Unfortunately, a family circumstance began to seep its vengeance into me. The scariest part is that the divergence was not obvious . It was a slow unseen infiltrator.  Little by little worry and doubt began to show up. It festered in such a way that was mostly oblivious to me. Experience after experience brought forth illness and I was provide my continuance of living via another’s donated bones.

Poof Just Like That

This time it became much more intense. Just what is happening?

I became an anxiety machine, but not the kind that was out in the open. Rather I was a closet anxiety mongrel. This lead to an unhealthy domestic violence relationship and the anxiety grew worse.

I do not write this for pittance, rather for your relief.  I understand what it is like to have no fear, become full of fear and work this out of my system. Been there done that and I am still evolving, exploring and growing

Blasting Through The Anxious Worry

Anxiety, Raising, Raise, Confidence, Magical BlessingsIn order to heal, I needed to deeply forgiveness myself for being lead into this matter. Next, I cleared myself over and over with much love, light and plenty of those who held the key for me to heal. I just had to ask for these keys. Sorry, there is not one answer. Rather it is like having a personal riddle to unraveling.

Unraveling I did, along with disavowing, dispelling and anything from this or past life times.  This takes patience, tears ( well at least for me). I used to not cry and now, oh boy watch out. That’s okay I realized that this is not a curse, but a benefit to feel so deeply. And it is also okay to ask for assistance; there have been times when I really tried to clear something from me, but I am too close, so I needed others to help me.

Real and Raw 

Anxiety became my go to fall down and fall back. Again, I am not looking for pity, rather let my experience be your teaching tool and key to your success.

Turning the Key to Success

As I began to turn the key, I found less anxiety. Most of all I began to see through the clearing my dashed confidence. Step by step I discovered ways that built my confidence. Each step of confidence made me less anxious. This is to not say that I do not have anxiety, I do; it was much less.

Anxiety is my Super Power

Sounds silly, crazy and it probably is; yet, I feel so deeply and discovered what my anxiety looks like and feels like. This helps direct and guide me to boost my confidence.

6 ways to Lessen Your Anxiety and Raise Your Confidence

  1. Give yourself opportunities for you to succeed. No one gets to measure how big or small your opportunity is; this is yours and yours alone. Own it. Succeed at it. Boost you up!
  2. Practice how to handle life’s stressors. The art of practice and the art of talking to yourself is a great tool. This can help you prepare for an opportunity. It can help you weave in and out of the emotions, fear and help you soar to success.
  3. I am so much more when I am me Authenticity Authentic Truth True YouUse Lavender. This is a great plant and essential oil to help soothe, calm and relax you. If you are a lady dab 1-2 drops on a cotton ball and tuck this in your bra.  Or as a dude, you could dab 1-2 drops on a cotton ball and tuck this in your shirt pocket. Voila a great aroma and aromatherapy at the same time to soothe and calm you.
  4. Explore something new for you. Go an adventure new or re-visit an adventure. I used to pick a place on a map and go hike in a park. I discovered so much about me while exploring the beauty of nature.
  5. Move your body. Get up, get a movin. Even if it is for 15 mins. move your body. This could be gentle stretches, yoga, a nice stroll. Kick it up and run if you like.
  6. Just Do it! Don’t even give yourself time to think about it. This is a major anxiety stressor and opportunity killer. Count backwards 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and boom do it.

Many Uses Lavender Essential Oil Aromatherapy calm relax restore transform

The Many Uses of Lavender

Let’s explore the many uses of lavender. Some may call this folktale remedies, the yesteryear of a traveling medicine man, a witch brewing her concoction or a Native Medicine Man/Woman. Lavender has many essences to help you with emotional and mental health.

Why Lavender is Useful

Lavender is a very versatile herb and flower.  Most of us use the flower buds.

  • Relaxing
  • Restorative
  • Eases anxieties
  • Soothes anger
  • Calms over activity (ADD/ADHD) or helps slow down an overactive mind
  • Meditation
  • Decorative
  • Edible
  • Essential Oil

Herb 

lavender book serene tranquil calm restore relax rest transformLavender is an herb that has so many wonderful uses. Not only is this gorgeous to grow in your yard, but is also a great houseplant.

Imagine for a moment a meditation room with ivory walls, a light silk fabric flowing with the air movement and the aroma of a lavender plant naturally calming this space. To me, this sounds like a serene meditation space to relax and restore you in a sea of serenity.

Dry the lavender blooms and voila more uses.

  • Add a 1/4 tsp lavender buds, 1/4 tsp chamomile blooms, and 1 tsp marshmallow root to brew a nice relaxing tea. You may sweeten this with 1 tsp cane sugar, honey or whatever you enjoy. This will soothe your mind, body and spirit.
  • Make a lavender satchel with dried lavender buds. This wonderful aroma can be use for you, your linen or lingerie draws, or as a gift.
  • Use lavender buds for a floral pick me up in any room.
  • Place lavender buds on a gift or gift tag.
  • Sprinkle lavender buds in your pillowcase for a restful slumber.
  • Tie lavender buds together and create a decorative sweetly scented wreath.

 

Essential Oil

  • Place a drop or two of lavender essential oil with 1-2 drops of coconut oil on a cotton ball and tuck this in your bra for an all day and natural stress reliever.
  • Use 2-3 drop of l.e.o in your bath with Epsom salt and this soothes your tired, sore muscles.
  • Add 1-2 drops of l.e.o. to sugar. Step in shower, use the sugar scrub  on your body; next,  turn on the shower water to wash off and reveal sparkly soft skin
  • Place 1-2 drops of l.e.o and c.o on the bottom of a child’s foot who refuses to sleep and poof, voila slumber.
  • Add 3-4 drop of l.e.o into a diffuser and fill your space with this serene aroma.

 Animal Friends

I am not a fan of the harsh anti-flea remedies. So,  I located at my health food store a natural option with lavender and other herbs collar.  Fortunately, I have also found soothing anti-anxiety lavender collars for my dog who was terrified of fireworks; and I would even spray l.e.o on her bed during high firework seasons.  This helped calm her down.

Edible

Yep, you can eat and ingest lavender buds. Edible lavender helps soothe your mind body and spirit in a gentle way.

  • A favorite treat of mine in the hot summer is lavender mint ice tea.
  • Another sweet treat is lavender sugar.
  • Once upon a time local bakery baked the most incredible lemon & lavender muffins.

The possibilities are endless with lavender.

Angels in the Clouds

Accessing Archangel Michael’s Gifts of Clearance

Archangel Michael is one of your Divine Support Team Angels that you can access anywhere & anytime. Call his name and he will be there helping you release negativity. Archangel Michael is my go to guy. He is my birth angel and always walks by my side. The question that he has sought as of recent from me is: do I truly seek what is seeking me by releasing negativity of a past situation?

Besought Destiny

Rainbow Heart

Rainbow by Natasha Botkin

In one outrageous moment, the Divine spoke its Will for me. Due to the way it was presented it took every ounce for me not to flee. It is truly what I want and need; however Free Will spoke its ugly forum to me. It was almost an enticement of come darling, I have your truth. Do not stray from me. However, this could not have been further from my truth. Divine Will rode up in the form of a Dark Carriage; “come along and you will ride with me. We will ride our destiny.”

Michael’s Gifts of Clearance

As the moment arose, I called forth my Divine Angelic Support Team and felt my Guides and Angels coming forth; “we will walk with your dear one.  You are not alone and will master your destiny.  Take a deep breath for what you seek, seeks you and you will begin anew.”

Archangel Michael’s use of a mighty sword cuts away all the ties that may bind the negativity to you. Are you asking?  Due to Free Will, Angels cannot nor will not cross the Divine’s notion unless it is immediate life threatening danger.

As he cuts away the negativity the ego may wish to pull you back.  The ego very much dislikes competition, and this is a mega loss for the ego  Yet, it is not a loss or a win; it is the recognition of your birthright to be free.  You do not have to hold onto the darkness.  The darkness can be released and let go.  You deserve to be free of the patterns and triggers that hold you in a figurative cell.

Call to Thee

Say this simple prayer and Archangel Michael shall begin.

“Dear Archangel Michael, I am weary. Please help me to release that which no longer serves me.  I am afraid of this change, so please walk with me as I let go of the old and welcome the new.”

Poof!  Zip! Zap! Archangel Michael begins and releases that which binds the negativity to you. There is much more to the process.  The ego is a nasty little bugger that hides and looms deeply within.  Ponder a moment of disallowing the dark.  This is not a one stop shop or sweep.  That is the nonsense of a old paradigm.  Yes, you are releasing; then again, there is a new dance that must make way, and what if you do not know the dance.

You do Not have to dance alone

Angels in the Clouds

Angels in the Clouds by Natasha Botkin

I am not talking about a bad day- darkness.  I am talking about the darkness that looms, that picks, that can create pure and utter chaos in one’s life. Sometimes this shows as anxiety, depression, addiction (and addiction does not have to be to food, drugs, alcohol-this can be for anything that you keep repeating and know that you need to let go of), self-harm of yourself or others, grief, over spending, under spending, speaking ill about yourself, judgement, and so much more. How many times have you set out to conquer something only to falter?  The deliverance from a sate of absurdity to alter a pattern or trigger with the success of not truly hearing the advice or wellness.  This is anything that continually stands in your way from Shining your Divine Inner Radiance.

You do not have to be this way.  I describe in my book/blog “When Egos Feed, my ego was holding me prisoner with that facets if they know they will think less of me.  The ego’s utter mistrust.  So, I began my recovery alone.  Worse was the disillusion of separation. It seems as if I was all alone; yet I was never alone.  Again the trick that the ego is it to make one to believe- a nonsense of reverie- far away from the Divine.

Gentle Approach

The other iconic moment is the adage that it is a race. This  takes time to recover from the disallowance of the dark voids that can cause distrust, mistrust and darkness. A new way of being is not an overnight sensation.  Be patient as you are learning a new way of being.

When all was said and done, I had to find those who vibes with me.  Those who truly loved me for me.  I was surrounded in such a chaotic mess that many were me pulling down and away from my authenticity.

Never Ever Alone

Even if you need to let those who no longer walk with you–go; you are never ever alone  Your Divine Support Team is everywhere you are and go.  A former client once gasped at this notion, “You mean even when I masturbate?  Oh jeeze.”  Yes, Dear Heart, your Divine Support Team is everywhere you are.
