Meditation can help you develop a profound, pervasive feeling of confidence.
When you feel confident, you don’t have to be worried about what others think of you. You can tackle difficult situations without fear or worry. You know that you can problem solve, handle emotional ups and downs, resolve conflicts, and take time for yourself.
How to meditate on confidence
To begin a confidence meditation practice, choose a comfortable place and a quiet space for you to sit. Start by allowing yourself to relax and breathe deeply.
After a few minutes of deep breathing, close your eyes and allow yourself to rest in a comfortable position. You might find it helpful to use a pillow or a pillar for added support.
Bring a picture, short movie, or imagery of a confident situation to mind, but don’t force it or you might not get the full effect. It might be a conversation you want to have or a presentation that needs to be made at work.
As the picture and the confidence begins to infuse your awareness, touch your anchor – either your knuckle or ear lobe – to amplify the felt experience of your confidence. It’s important to do this right at the peak of your confidence so it won’t dissipate.
After a few more breaths, slowly release the anchor and return to your original meditation. Thank yourself for your confidence and assess how you are feeling now.
