6 Simple Ways to Increase Your Confidence Part 1

In this part of the two part series we will explore confidence. What it means and how you can have more of it in your life. In my previous blog, What’s Your Word of the Year, I share that my word of the year is confidence.

You may wonder how can I convey confidence to you; who better than one who is actually living the change; rather than one more person barking an idea at you. I do not know about you, but I am super tired of “people” yakking about subjects they have not experienced.

What Does Confidence Mean

The word begins with the meaning the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something; firm trust.

Let’s take a deeper look. It is the state of feeling certain about the truth of something.

Grateful heart Gratitude Self Love Self Care Magical BlessingsOr going even deeper. It is a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.

Once upon a time due to a domestic violence situation, I learned to distrust, disallow and second guess everything. It shook my confidence to the core.

I am no longer that person.

Brimming

I am brimming with confidence. It is another way to say that I am full of confidence. Or what I like to call True Voice, Authentic Voice, and Who I am.

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” – E.E. Cummings

Good Vibrations

Imagine for a moment that you have your own unique style and quirks. You are not afraid to be you. You know you and use your voice in a positive manner that is beneficial to you.  When you speak your truth you will find yourself surrounded by others who have the same vibration. They may not seem like your peps, and yet, they are in your vibrational allegory.

Yep, that may mean that people who once seemed cool and adored you, may now find you off putting and vice versa. Your true authentic voice and vibration will light your path. This is confidence at its best. Being brave and courageous to unequivocally you! 

6 Simple Ways to Increase Your Confidence

  1. Groom yourself: It seems obvious and yet it is amazing on how good you can feel with a shower or bath. I have been in a horrible feeling and poof as if by magic the water cleansed me both inside and outside.
  2. Dress Nicely: Get dressed. There was a point in time where I would slide out of bed, run a brush through my tangled mass of hair, pull it back and throw on a shirt and shorts; no care, just going through the motion. We all need days like this to rest and veg; but not when it is day after day. Get dressed this will boost your mood big time.
  3. Anxiety and/or depression zappers: Stop worrying about the past and doubting the future.  Live right now at this moment. Right now you are reading this blog post. When you are done you have moved to another moment. Go slow; step by step. There is no race.Dream Big Make Happen Choice Chance Change Magical Blessings
  4. Mindful breathing. This can be meditation. Taking a 5 mins midday break where you breath deeply. Let your mind wander. Breath in and out. Just breath and let go of worry, anxiety.
  5. Speak slowly. Give yourself the benefit of not racing to an answer. If you really mean no. Inhale, take a deep breath, exhale and slowly say, no, thank you. When you slow you speech, you are able to connect with your true feelings. It is okay to say no.
  6. Set a goal/new habit. It takes 21 days to create a habit and 28 days for this to stick. Choose a goal/new habit. Set aside time and work on it for 15 mins each day. Mark on a calendar your success and at the end of 21/28 days celebrate. Not a small celebration. Make this huge!

You Can Do it! 

No matter how many times your have tried or where you are beginning, be proud of yourself for trying. You are an amazing, brave individual. Now go forth and build your confidence one step at a time.

Natasha, please help me gain more confidence

Are You Shunning the Girl Within? Part 2

In my previous post Are you Shunning the Girl Within Part 1, I discuss the nasty subject of girl shunning.  However, let’s take examine this at a deeper level.

Ready, set, meet me there…

Shunning You

Inner Girl Power Inner Child Feminine Magical BlessingsYou are a girl; your age does not matter; you have an inner child.

Do you sit with her, play with her, hold any interest in her?

Worst of all do you ignore her or call her names?

If you answered yes to any of these, there is a way to stop the snarky madness.

Moving Through the Pain

For a moment stop and ponder why you ignore or call you names.

Why do you dislike or dishonor yourself?

Who in your life created a way for you to do this?

Now, it is not about the blame game.  This is about getting to the root of it all.  Strong blooms, blossom better with strong roots.  So, we will explore and discover what is uprooting your girl.

Seek and you Shall Find

Inner Feminine Power Strength Magical Blessings Resilience Inspire Transform

You are seeking happiness and solace. There is anxiety, worry or maybe dread. It does not have to be this way.

You will need 20-30 mins for this activity. Please enjoy this in a quiet space and light a while candle.

 Let’s Begin:

Meditation:  For a moment, close your eyes and see you at the age of 6. You are playing hide and seek.  What is the best hiding place to stay hidden?

Journal Time: Open your eyes and write this down.

Meditation: Next, close your eyes again. You are still in this perfect hiding spot. Hold out your hand and speak very softly in a sweet gentle manner. What does your inner girl do or say? Let her speak freely; allow her the freedom to express herself.

Journal Time: Open your eyes and write this down.

Meditation: Close your eyes again, and using a gentle, soft voice ask her what she needs.

Journal Time:  Open your eyes and write this down.

Meditation: Close your eyes, offer to sit with your inner girl.  Do not rush; especially if you have not spoken to her and spent time with her. She may shy and disbelieve you.  Use this meditation and journaling activity as much as you need.

Coming out of Hiding

Let go of all that you “think” you know, and allow your inner girl to connect with you. She will show you things about you, that even you may not remember nor recall. She is on your side, and wants the best for you. You are an incredible team. Grant her permission to be this cheerleader, teacher and guide.

The biggest moment of all.

Ho’oponopono is a powerful ancient Hawaiian Forgiveness Mantra.

Close your eyes and repeat:

I am sorry

Please forgive me

I love you 

Thank You

Standing Tall with your Inner Girl Power:

  1.  Be Authentic! Be you like no one is watching. Dance, sing, wear that lavender hair.  Seriously, no one cares. “If no one likes what you are creating, just smile at them and tell them to go make their own fucking art.” – Elizabeth Gilbert
  2. Speak to your Inner Girl. Let the conversation keep flowing. Do not stop it. She needs to hear from you directly, fully and completely. Turn off the electronics and spend 15-20 mins a day with her. She is a powerful force deep within you; she is your biggest cheerleader and ally!
  3. Honor & Respect your Inner Girl. If you say to her that you will go for a walk, meditate, paint do it! She will retreat once again, and find it even more difficult to trust you. You deserve self-love and self-care! 
  4. Ask your Inner Girl  for advice. Going to get a mani/pedi, ask her what color or what type of bubble bath, essential oil, colors to paint/color with. She loves that you include her as she is you and you are she. Ask what’s a good idea for dinner. There’s all kinds of way to ask her for advice. 
  5. Support your Inner Girl. Your inner girl is deeply connected with you, so she may be a great siren to signal danger. When she does this, please disallow the ego to override her. Again, she has your best interest at heart. 
  6. Calm the inner anxious storm within. Your inner girl is handy at helping with the anxiety monster that gets out of hand. Ask her to hold you, take your hand and guide you. She will thrive and enjoy caring for you; as she is you and you are she. She is great at calming the woes, doubts and worries.

Now your inner girl is not an excuse. Oops, my inner girl got her freak on or my inner girl made me do it. Do not use her as scapegoat; she will not tolerate that.

A nice example is I wrestled for a year to incorporate pastel purple in my hair. Finally, after peekaboo attempts, I heard my inner girl, say, “Girl, just get over yourself and do it, trust me!” I ordered the pastel purple and very much enjoy the gorgeous lavender locks!! My inner girl was so spot on!

Get your Inner Girl on!  

Rock it Girl! 

You Got this!! 

 

Yes!  Natasha, I would love to hear my inner girl and shine my inner radiance.

6 Creative Ways to Express YourSelf

The Divine created us to be creative, and when the Sacral Chakra is fine tuned your creative Self expression easily flows through you.

Create 

The definition to create is to bring something into existence.  This is about bringing something forward with a joyful heart. Not everyone takes pleasure in the same creative journey. That’s the beauty of creative expression is the truly unique Self expression that belongs solely to you; this is yours and yours alone.

 

LIGHT ENERGY

Letting Go Expectations and Light Energy

Nature’s Light Energy @ Hidreck Dragonshade

We are energy light beings who thrive on energy.  This energy very much brings us expansion. The creative energy surges forth and asks us to create.  It is like your Sacral Chakra lights up and poof your magic begins.

 

Sexual Energy

A misstep of sexual energy  can occur when the Sacral Chakra is out of tune and misaligned. This can be over the top or none at all. We are created via the Divine for procreation, sensual and sexual energies to bring forth these creations.  However, we also not designed to forgo.  The American culture seems enamored with female breasts; the more the better in most movies.

Other cultures look to the female yoni/womb as the most sensually alluring.  This is the preemptiveness of the creative flow within. Allowing the sexual energy to flow also helps the expressive ways to come forward.  Suppression of sensual/sexual disallows the overall continuance of another.

 

Energy Express 

Energy can be clouded, convoluted and/or stuck.  It is about an open flow of giving and receiving. Ponder a light bulb, when the conduit is open the energy current flows and there is light. When it is shut off then there is no energy and there is no light- no energy.  Your energy being Self works in the same manner.  When you are in the flow, you are open and allowing to give and receive. When you are not, then your are stuck or blocked from that pattern of the Divine to creatively express yourSelf.

 

Self expression

Not everyone has the same interests, creative skills or Self Expression.  This is the beauty to use all of your senses: see, hear, smell, taste and touch.  Essentially, this is about Self Expression. What is in you that can come forth if you so choose to allow this?

Since, we all have differences what is created via self expression is a echo of a joyful soul. The most inward, endearing moments.  Not all joy has bells and whistles.  How one chooses to express themselves is part of the evolution of the soul.  Releasing and letting go of that which no longer serves you is part of the creation of giving and receiving.

Not all Self Expression is in the form of Art. This is anything that is brought into existence.

NURTURING Self Expression

The most natural way to nurture yourSelf is through creation.

How often have you thought it must be a certain way or it does not count or why bother?

You are Uniquely, Quirky YOU and you deserve to Express yourSelf in a manner that makes your heart happy.  So, if you enjoy working on cars that brings forth peace to a motor to run smoothly, so be it.  If you enjoy writing from your heart, so be it.  If you enjoy any form of a hobby that brings something into existence and you have a happy heart as a result of this; this is the epitome of Creative Self Expression.

6 Ways of Creative Self Expression

  • Sing or Play an Instrument (even if your are singing along in your car; this is a way for your heart to bring forth your happiness and joy)
  • Write (Journal, write a blog, write a poem or book)
  • Use a Thesaurus (find different ways to say the same thing-Happy: Joy, Delighted, Content)
  • Draw or paint your feelings
  • Dance or move your body (through movement)
  • Role Play (act out, play a game, be someone else for a moment to show or practice expressing your feelings)

These are just a few.
