Cultivating self-confidence involves focusing on your own lovely strengths.
Comparing ourselves to others is a fruitless endeavor. We are all uniquely blessed with our own special abilities. Comparing leads us to be focusing on other people’s gifts versus our own. We then may use judgement, perhaps perceiving someone else as better or has something we do not. It is okay to admire another’s gifts, just not covet them. We need to completely understand we each have very unique talents, gifts or abilities of our own.
When we change our focus to look at our passions – basically, what we love to do – we can discover our remarkable individual brilliance. Once we understand that our passions are part of our inherent gifts, it brings us to the realization of our own unique contribution in the world. It allows us to see the wonder of our own special abilities. We can work on accepting our gifts to help strengthen them. This helps us to shine our special light in the world, sharing what we were born to do, and helping others in our special way.
When we recognize and work with the gifts and talents we have been blessed with, focusing on strengthening them, it provides the self-confidence to shine our beauty & light, in whatever creative ways are best for each of us. Self-confidence is knowing and sharing exactly what is special about ourselves. It’s wholeheartedly believing in ourself and our gifts. It’s is also keeping an open mind to learning new techniques or lessons, while truly having the faith that we can make our dreams come true.
When I was growing up, I always wanted to help others in some way. I would help multiple people in multiple ways. It is when I worked at healing from being co-dependent and a people-pleaser that I found my path. This was my unique path to helping others heal themselves and find their true life mission and path. Health & wellness is my passion for mind, body & soul. I learned from others and self-taught myself in many areas from healthy eating to soul balance & spirituality to manifestation and more. Yoga has been a wonderful way for me to learn while helping others, yet it was when someone asked me to take Reiki classes that it all clicked HOW I would live my passion. I was already writing newsletters and posts about how I felt and what I learned and leading yoga classes but it dawned on me that through expanding into Reiki Energy, I could really help others heal themselves. My inherent gifts of intuition and psychic abilities are part of my uniqueness in what I do and how I do it, coupled with the healing work I did while finding my path. Recently I added in Akashic Record Readings which can help someone go even deeper into the energy work and I can incorporate it into my sessions if needed or desired.
Sometimes it’s a matter of already knowing what we are meant to do, and sometimes it’s diving deeper into our life experiences and passions. Either way, our unique gift needs to be discovered and shared as they are part of our soul life mission! Therefore, I’m working on creating my own thriving business by sharing what I’ve learned, providing the energy and offering the messages as they occur to me. My self-confidence has come through as more people have asked for my help and as I strengthen the abilities I have through providing the help, energy & messages. And, as my clients provide feedback, it helps reinforce what I’m doing is needed.
