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

Celebrating Your Inner Girl Power Magical Blessings Feminine Goddess

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.

She did What? 6 Ways a to be a Sensual Woman

Let’s connect and transform your gorgeous Feminine Goddess qualities. This does not matter where you are at.  Invite her in and she will dance with all of you.

My BeLoved said the most wonderful statement.  “I love all of you, especially those parts that are wild and free just as they should be.” What did I do, I invited my Feminine Goddess in even more.

Showing the world your sensual side is natural. This is the very essence of you.  

Ladies, let’s not encapsulate your feminine self.

Rather dust her off, set her free and see your Feminine Goddess radiate deep from within.

You are a gorgeous Feminine Goddess!  

Healing Baths 

In a past blogs,  Tune in for a Spiritual Cleanse and How to Conduct  a Spiritual Yoni Cleanse, I discuss the importance of releasing and letting go that which no longer serves you. Bathing is a natural way to cleanse.  The hot water cleanses and the scents help you connect more deeply to your feminine energies.

  • Light candle; use a favorite scented one.
  • Run hot water into tub.
  • Add 1/2 cup Epsom Salt to water.
  • Add 3-4 drops of Essential Oil: Jasmine, Lavender & Rose deeply connect you with your feminine energies.
  • Turn off or down the lights. Allow the candle to illuminate you, the bath and your soul.
  • Lounge in the hot bathwater 15-20 mins.
  • Towel off.  Allow your hair to naturally dry.
  • Rest

 

Fluid Movement/Dance/Yoga 

“I wish to live a life that creates my soul to dance inside my body.” – Dele Clanubi

Movements do not have to be grandiose.  They can be smaller; yet not too small. The most important is allowing you to physically, spiritually and emotionally connect you with your soul. So, it’s important for you to meld with you.  What feels natural to you; allow your body to stretch in a fluid manner.

Delicate Fucking Flower Feminine Goddess Energies Fluid Movement Magical Blessings Yes, yes my funny sense of humor; and yet, you are a delicate flower.  Flow gently with your fluid movement. Whether this is dance, gentle stretches or yoga.

Fluid Movement:

  • Imagine that you are a silk floating the in the air.
  • Sway your arms back and forth; add your legs, pelvis.
  • Feel this fluid movement within you and all around you.

 

Ragdoll Pose: 

  • Raise your arms to the sky.
  • Bend at your waist.
  • Clasp both hands on elbows with head towards floor.
  • Rest in this pose for 3 deep breathes.
  • Unclasp hands, stand upright and reach for the sky.
  • Bring hands into prayer pose and take a deep breath.

Dance like no one is watching!  Because really they are either looking at their phones or need someone to get the dance train started. You might as well be the engineer and conductor all in one.

 

Relaxing Massages 

Massage Rejuvenation Magical Blessings Healing Center Feminine Goddess Energies Massages are relaxing. They are restorative and there have been plenty of studies specifying that this helps you spiritually connect  on a deeper level (Mayo, 2017). This helps a lady de-stress, let go of junk,  tap into your strength,  and your feminine power. Plus, just imagine all the wonderful aromas wafting through the air and the smooth qualities that your skin receives from the essential oils. It’s a win-win!

  • Gentle massages
  • Lengthening your muscles
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Raindrop massage (one of my favs!)

 

Sensuous Foods 

Sensual chocolate feminine goddess magical blessingsConnecting sight, smell, taste and touch with foods is amazing. Mindful eating helps you eat quality foods in a manner that is beneficial to both your insides and your outsides. There is no race to the finish line to clean your plate. Plus, imagine for just a moment taking a food, placing this on your tongue and allowing this to slide down your  throat as if you are making love with your food.

  • Chocolate super sensual.  Break a piece off and inhale the aroma.  Next, place this on your tongue and taste the deep rich flavor of the chocolate.  Allow this to slide down your throat. (A sensual woman uses all of her senses; you just used 4 out of 5). Plus, Dark chocolate is good for you.  Win-Win!
  •  Mango is a  very sensual, juicy fruit. Open one up and let the juices run onto your fingers. This  tastes incredible and makes you smell sweet. Yum!
  • Strawberries are similarly sensual as a mango. Bite into the strawberry and mush this around in your mouth; allow the sweetness to drip down your throat and naturally cleaning your teeth.  And if you combine chocolate and strawberries- double yum!
  • Watermelon is sweet.  Peel one, place this on your tongue and suck the juices out. It’s a great way to feel secure in your own skin as the juices flow.  I would not advise this for long trips; watermelon is mostly water and as this surges through you, poof cleansing your urinary tract and voila! It’s potty time, now!
  •  Fig. Nope sorry, not like the fig newton cookie kind; rather the fresh kind.  Figs were thought to be an aphrodisiac in ancient times, because is appears similar to female sex organs.  Opening up this fruit will open up your feminine flow.

 

Meditation

  • Massage Rejuvenation Magical Blessings Healing Center Feminine Goddess EnergiesMeditation helps you to connect with yourSelf better, lessen your stress triggers, sleep better and have more peacefulness in your life.
  • This does not need to be rigid; this shall flow.
  • Find a meditation on your terms and in your style. There is not one size fits all.

Senses meditation: 

(for those of your who thought sex, nope this is about you and not a partner. Nor is this a fastfood orgasm. We want a happy meal, but not in that sense. Pun intended. Let’s tap into all of your senses.

Strawberry water senses sensual feminine goddess energies magical blessings Sit in a quiet space. Prepare a bowl of strawberries.  Paper or cloth towels.

Sight: Turn down or the lights off. Light a scented candle. Close your eyes and smell the candle.

Smell: Can you truly smell the aroma or does your mind believe the packaging? Inhale and sit with this scent in your nostrils. Allow this to flow into you and for you to absorb all of this.

Hear: Listen carefully. What sounds do you hear? Can you hear the pop and crackle of the candle’s flame.

Touch: Pick up a strawberry, place a towel under your hand. Close your hand. Allow your hand to encompass all of the strawberry. Really feel it; you should have the towel under your hand if this gets messy. Feel the soft, sensual,  roundness of the berry. Place this to the side or pop this in your mouth.

Taste: Open your mouth and place a strawberry in your mouth. Let the sweet deliciousness swell on your tongue and drift down your throat.

 

Rejuvenating

Do you have a spot that fuels your mind, body and soul?  You need a place to go to unwind, let go and allow you to turn off your modern distractions.  The ideal location is what sets your heart on fire.  If you didn’t proclaim, “It’s…” Then, close your eyes, place your hand on your heart and see what appears.  If you are an introvert this could be a space in your home or yard.  There is no “rhyme” to it. This is what helps you fill your well, so that you cup runneth over.
