There is plenty of research to be found that suggests that meditation can help to increase self-confidence since it helps us to live more fully by embracing the moment and re-frames our relationship to suffering. Before we’re able to offer up kindness to the world, we must first support and love ourselves, so start to practice kindness towards yourself.
➸ Sit in a comfortable place, upright, and begin to observe the breath as it comes in and as it goes out.
➸ Bring your focus to your heart center, and with each inhale, breathe in love and compassion and kindness, allowing it to envelop and radiate into the very core of you, as you feel your heart start to soften and yourself becoming more open.
➸ Keep calm and let your concentration, confidence, courage, creative energy, and sense of vitality increase with every inhale. With each exhale release any negativity, tension, or resistance.
➸ With each breath, move yourself to a place of gratitude and consider all the things you have to be thankful for in acknowledging all the things good in your life.
➸ When you’re ready, take a few full deep breaths to close the practice.
