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.

Serenity Inside Job Magical Blessings

Serenity is an Inside Job Part 3

Serenity is a way for you to make courageous and wise decisions that will change your life. This was my word for 2017. I have not ever chosen a word to be my word of the year. So, I was not sure how this would show up in my life.

Wise Courage 

Serenity Inside Job Change Chance Transition Transformation Magical Blessings Courage WisdomSo many changes showed up for me. There have been days where my head spins and I wonder where I get off the out of control roller coaster, and then suddenly things calm down. The best attribute for my personal growth was the disallowance of being a peace keeper. Early on in my life, I learned to be given love was through peaceful negations with family members. In truth, this is not the greatest affect for anyone. Therefore, being courageous to walk away from things that did not serve me was one of the bravest and wisest experiences for serenity.

You, too, be courageous to walk way from anything that no longer severs you. If this sounds wonky, think of this as a mission and if the mission went away or feels like it is over; move on. You will be glad that you did.

Clarifying Self-Confidence 

Intuitive and serenity go hand and hand for you. I found a much deeper intuitive connection that lead me to more  self- confidence. We are all here to grow and learn. Even the bravest and most fearless have things that can stop them in their tracks. You need to keep moving, learning and growing. Let go of complacency. Move onward and discover that through clarity your self-confidence arises in a whole new way.

This may require change. It may be an big adjustment. Step back and be gentle with yourself during a time of transition. There is no race. You will not win nor lose; it is all about the wonderful discoveries along the way. Let go of expectations and let yourself grow, learn and courageously shift.

Bringing it to my Soul

Dance of Spirit @Magical Blessings

Serenity brought me much closer to my soul. Each step and shift adjust my sails and brought me to other destinations unknown. A destination does not have to be a location. This can also be a moment in time. A way for your to traverse the new by letting go of the old.

Let it Go, Let it Flow meditations and resurgence of painting @ my Heart Loft brought so much serene moments  for me. Yes, this brought forth much change; in fact I was in transition all of 2017. Yet, this also brought for one of my greatest dreams to build my dream home. 2018 will bring forth this dream and it all began with calm, courageous change.

I can do it! 

You can do it! 

Let’s do this together!

True norht Compasss Love Heart Grateful Gratitude Magical BLessings

Don’t Hold Back Your Heart Let it Point North!

A grateful heart is a happy heart. You do, desire a happy heart, right…

With that being said, happiness is an inside job. No one can make you happy. You can feel the emotional outpouring of a happy feeling and exude joy; yes, but only you can bring this forth.

However, so many say do this, don’t do that. Oh hell, no we won’t go down that path.

I AIN’T GOT TIME 

Compass, Heart, Truth North. Magical Blessings, So, I am supposed to be happy. Sure, Right and OMG, not another dumb person telling me what I should or shouldn’t do.

Heck, what do I do with this anxious, dread and worry?

Aww, this is where it can get tricky, and yet it doesn’t  have to. Have you ever heard the idea about working smarter not harder?  I don’t know about you, but I like things easy, peasy and to be done with it. I ain’t got time for all that drama and nonsense.

ANXIETY, WORRY DOUBT BOREDOM

Those are killer of dreams. These are keeper of cells (When Egos Feed); think prison cell.

You do not deserve to stay frozen unable to move. Break free and get a movin.

TREAT YOUR HEART LIKE A COMPASS

Place your hands over your heart. Do you feel that? That is your heart beat. It keeps ticking, so you keep living.

Yet, are you loving?

Are you loving life?

Are you loving you?

It is too easy to get swept up in life’s drama or distracted from that which you love. Yes, this includes you, too.

You my dear heart are your greatest love. Treat your heart like it is the most precious love of all. Compass magical blessings true north heart love selfYou are your most precious love. Be like Dolly Parton and declare “I Will Always Love You.”  Many know this song via Whitney Houston and she did an amazing job, but the original song writer is dear ole Dolly.

Now, let’s get in touch with your heart and point this true north.  Many mystics believe that your heart is your true north. When you align with your heart, you align fully with Spirit/Divine/whomever you speak with.

So how do you do this? Simple, let go of anything that is stopping you. Ready, set, let it go…let it flow. Once you tap into your true Divine heart is when life aligns to its greatest source: Your Heart.

HA, EASY PEASY

Natasha, I’ve tried everything from self-loathing to self-harm, pills, alchie and ya. Okay, I am not here to criticize nor judge you! Nope, I am not. However, I can help guide you to your true north. Creative Self Expression is a great way to connect with you, your heart and soul. Paint, Write, Mediation and much more can help bring out what is locked behind bars.

Also, forget perfect. That is such a lie!  It will hurt ya every time. Let go of the perfect idea and allow yourself to get messy. Go for that meditative hike, paint with your fingers, dig in the dirt and so much more.

p.s. did ya notice that much of this does not include electronics? Those can distract you from hearing your heart. Put ’em down and get outdoors; even if it is for 5 mins.

HOLDER OF DREAMS

Your heart is the keeper of your dreams. When you have a grateful heart is when your inner happy peace exudes and overflows. Life seems simpler, easier; it is almost by magic that everything just syncs. Easy Peasy Breezy!

Therefore, getting to your true north is via your heart. This is when head, heart, and spirit triangulate in the perfect formation. You are in alignment with your truth. You’ve let go of things in your way, and things manifest and flow to you.

MAGIC WAND

fairy godmother magic wan magical blessingsSo, my dear heart where is your magic wand. Aww, it is in your heart; you are the soul keeper of your heart; this is your inner map to Spiritual Growth. This is your map to deep inner peace, joy, and harmony.  Let it go, and let it flow.

Bippty, boppity boo…now it’s up to you!

Go forth dear heart and live the life of your dreams…
