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.

What’s Your Word of the Year

Last year I did something new. One day while I was meditating, I heard a word over and over. It was crystal clear as if an angelic wind swept through my ear drums sweetly singing me this word; I wrote the down the word: Serenity. I made a pact with myself that I did indeed need more serenity and asked Spirit what was the next step.

Don’tcha just love when there seems like hollowness and now the angelic voice is quiet. I shrugged my shoulders and ventured onward: I was worn out, my love life seemed lost, my two young adult boys moved into their own spaces. Nothing felt right as I tided the house. It felt dismal and dark.

Changes

Change #1: 

Boom, whap OH NO! Roof flapping in the wind. My BeLoved to the rescue. Yeah!

Change #2: 

Water everywhere. In the house, outside of the house. In fact during a storm, I stood in the middle of my house with water rushing past me like I was standing on an island in the middle of a river. So many things began to break. OMG! My house is evicting me. UGH! It wants a family, “please let me go. You will find better.”

Change #3:

Choice Chance Change Magical Blessings Laid off; house up for sale. I barely have time to get everything out in the time that it sells and the new owners take possession. Due to that I donated, and gave away 90% of my items.

Change #4:
I moved in with my BeLoved. I am scared of what has occurred with us before. Yet, my heart says hush. It’ll get better.

Change #5: 

Looking for a new space. The land finds us. It’s an amazing, peaceful. SERENE; it is serenity at its best.  Do want to hear the funny part? It was 9 months when I chose Serene for my word of the year to when we purchased our dream land and begin to prepare to build our dream home. Nice Delivery!

Things Aren’t Always As They Seem

Now when you read about all the changes, it seems scary and plain fucked up. Trust me I have said aloud many a times this year, “Spirit, can I have a rest?” Spirit gave me 3 months to rest and yep another change. A job showed; it needed me as much as I needed it.  Building your dream home requires happy underwriters.

With each transition, I was shifting into the most amazing serenity deep within me. So, what may seem daunting; really wasn’t. Spirit was creating ways for me to let go and to flow into my own serenity.

Will She Do It Again? 

Yes, yes I am!  I have no idea what will show nor what will happen. Or that’s what I say out loud My heart and soul know the way, and I am getting out of their way so we can have more…

Are ya Ready…

Believing that YOU Can

Now, one word of caution. I worked out all of the kinks.

Ask Believe Receive Magical Blessings Faith Trust Confidence Choice Chance Change LET GO of EXPECTATIONS OR WHAT YOU “THINK” the WORD MEANS.

Please trust me when I say Ask. Believe. Receive.

Things may not show up as you deem or think they should. Spirit knows what it is doing and will align you in the most magical of ways; even if it means letting go of people, places and things. This is about you and what your heart and soul need; if you allow it.

 

I wish you so much Luck, Love and Light on your incredible journey!

I ask one thing; please share your word and story with me, I would love to hear it!

Serenity Inside Job Magical Blessings

How Serenity is an Inside Job Part 2

Serenity comes from a deep inner connection of peace, courage and wisdom. You are able to make the changes that you need. What if you are unable to make a decision or change, then what?

Change 

Serenity Inside Job Change Chance Transition Transformation Magical Blessings Courage WisdomChange is something that we discovery early on. How this is presented to your developing self is also how you will handle change.

Ultimately, change is the ability to make something different. This could be a simple as making a dot over the letter i or a heart. Or this could be as complex as a seed that continues to shift into different stages of growth to become that blooming flower.

Either way, change is different. Some people love differences and some fall into a complacent category. They find something that they like a certain way and continue this over and over. A toddler that likes only one meal and insists this to be the only food they will enjoy. Some parents will allow this and others will not.

How this change was presented to you is why you have anxiety.

Stop & reflect back to your childhood. Did you like change?

How was this presented to you with gentle kindness and nudges or full on I am the adult and you will do as I say assault?

If you were given the latter of the two suggestions is why you may dislike change. Yet, staying complacent is not for your greatest benefit.

Rolling with the Punches

Sure we have all heard of roll with the punches or if it ain’t broken don’t fix it. Let’s look at this in a different manner. Life will have its challenges; its ups & downs. Serenity provides the courage to be wise, and how to offer this wisdom so that others will respect you. If they choose not to respect you; then that is on them; you’ve done nothing wrong. You will  show your power in another way; you decided to take the bull by the horns and just go for it.

Don’t let others get you down. You are amazing. So, someone didn’t like a pitch. Okay, there are others who may. Someone disliked your style of dressing; so be it, and why would you care what they think. Seriously, are they in charge of you. Nope! Therefore, do not be afraid to be the voice of reason or change.

In fact, I have found that one of my gifts in life is to be the pot stirrer.  I do not think inside the box, and bring a fresh new perspective. If I stood back, nothing would change; in many situations I was the influencer, the innovator. Imagine if I did not find my voice to speak up and anxiously sat there. Nothing would have changed; and just like that I swoop in, create Divine Spirit’s changes and fly away to other assignments. On more than one occasion, I have been called a bitch or an angel depending on who responded.  Many of the changes that I brought were life altering and even life saving.

Go ahead and be the serene change!

Self-Confidence 

Believe in You Natasha Botkin Magical Blessings Now this brings up a touchy subject, but depending on how change was presented to you also affected your self-confidence. If you feel like a spawning salmon always swimming upstream to spawn, mate and die; yeah, this can have a negative impact. This breaks ya down; big time.

If you were given a gentle nudge and allowed to express your ideas and concerns you were also taught how to offer ideas and suggestions with confidence. This positively builds you up; big time.

Part of your personal growth is to discover what works and does not work for you. This should not hinder your progression. You deserve to have confidence and bring forth serenity.

Do it! Be the courageous wise one! 

Be sure to read Parts 1-3 for best results.
