I learned that I enjoy a little mindful confidence and that a little confidence goes a long way. 😊

Rewriting old tapes
Affirmations play a large part in changing who I believe I am and who I've told myself I can become. I've used positive statements many years to treat PTSD and depression. It's like rewriting old tapes that roll around in my head; telling me I can't do it, I'm worthless, that I'm going to be killed, etc. Tying the meditation practice and positive affirmations together is a practice that I will return to. I'd like more from this teacher, please. There's an opportunity to really help people. Thank you.

I have resentments...
It’s getting in the way of my meditations as of late. Not being centered and being able to be still... physically and mentally. I have to sort myself out to be able to reach the higher plane.

May I have confidence
In who I am, where I have been, and what I know. And may that confidence radiates from within, as sweet fresh water, for me, for those around me, as love.

A little different
For some reason, I feel like smoking a cigarette doing this exercise. It was really something, different, then I've experienced before doing all these exercises.

I remember ...
This meditation helped me to remember all the things I have done, things I have learned and person I have become. We get so caught up in how we feel in the present - that we forget that time is fleeting. That what we feel is not who we are.

May I be confident in who I am, where I’ve been, and what I know! Those affirmations are so powerful!

What I know
I am so nervous! I have play auditions tomorrow night! I have to be able to do a North Carolina accent for the character I want. I have never acted before, mostly because of lack of confidence. I added the phrase: "May I have confidence in what I do." As I felt it provided some calm in what I don't doubt will be a restless night. I need to remember that the director will only believe in me if I believe in myself. So gosh darn it I will go and I will be great!

Believe
I know these things to be true at my deepest state of self but insecurity and fear of change are powerful voices. I am strong and more capable than I give myself credit for! Now, time to go create positive change in the world! 🙌

Stress
I learned how to control my stress and I feel less anxious, I do believe that it’s okay to feel like this and that it is understandable. Now, when I will be stressed, I am breathing slowly and softly.

Really beautiful
I feel like this meditation helped me soften to where I have been- so many beautiful places, but quite a few unsavory ones too. I also feel like it’s helped me prepare for my big day by resetting my self doubt and replacing it with confidence and self love ❤️

Self Confidence...
This meditation reminded me that I am self confident. The lessons of my life have made me who I am, to know where I have been, and have given me what I know. It’s always a nice reminder to not forget these lessons and to lead my day with this experienced confidence and with openness to gain additional knowledge to dither my growth.

Confident in self
I was feeling down on myself before I listened to this and it changed my mood instantly. I kept repeating, “can I have confidence in who I am?” And I felt my body and mind finally agree and say yes.

Noisy!
When I opened this section, everything was nice and quiet. But tapping the button for Aura certainly changed that! Suddenly there were people talking loudly, doors slamming, bells ringing, you name it! I couldn’t even hear the meditation, much less concentrate. However, I did notice that I was more amused than annoyed ( not my typical reaction), so I think that even the attempt helped moderate my response! Cool!😎

Say it to make it so
I have a long and varied history to be proud of, that has helped shape who I am and what I know. I am worthy and commissioned to share myself with the world around me and continue to grow. Namaste

May I Have Confidence
I like to turn these affirmations into affirmatives of God in my life. I am a child of God; God guides my steps; knowing Him is the biggest positive in my life.

Deserving
I am deserving of confidence in who I am, where I’ve been, and what I know—and so are you. The anchor of the breath and this mantra are available to me at any point of every day, and I’m so very grateful for that.

Taking confidence with me
I wanted a meditation experience that would last through the day, because my week just started yesterday and I feel like it is going to drag forever. This meditation is just what I needed. I hope to take this confidence with me to work so that I may stay focused and not dwell on the negative. Thanks 🙏 Aura

What I know...
Confidence in what I know is a tough one for me. There is always so much more I don’t yet know and I rarely see things as black and white, but many, many shades of gray. But what I have gleaned along the way has value, as a part of a whole, so I still need to share that with others and encourage them to do the same. Namaste

In the face of sorrow
In the face of sorrow I learned that I may not be able to stop the terror they is going on in the world right now that I can and will continue to fight for others because my past life experiences have given me the tools to do so.

I experienced a sense of calm hopefulness that I would have more confidence in myself following the repetition of these mantra

I need more confidence.
This really helped me analyze who I am, and that I need to give myself more credit. Confidence is key, and I always tend to forget that.

This was nice because recently I’ve come to believe that some of my anxiety stems from a lack of confidence about my future and about who I am as a person

Minha ansiedade vem de não acreditar em mim, na minha força, e consequentemente da pouca fé em Deus. Ontem consegui controlar pensamentos ruins e agir, pois o fred esteve comigo o dia todo. Mas não consegui ter todo o discernimento necessário para a situação. Hoje quero conseguir controlar meus pensamentos e sentimentos ruins cuidando de mim, buscando ajuda de Deus. E buscando me divertir.

Acceptance
I learned that I have to accept the things that I cannot control and to let go of things I cannot change. It’s important to feed the mind positive thought instead of constantly figuring out the past and how we would like to change them
T
Tiffany
Confidence
I’m not big on doing affirmations but I liked this meditation because I used the affirmations along with visualizing success at work and it made me feel peaceful, confident that I have what it takes with this new job. This will also work in other areas of my life too.

Fake it until you make it
I have heard these words too many times to count. The soothing words in the meditation built my confidence. I have been through a lot. My confidence is growing. I still need reminders that I am stronger then I sometimes think.

Today I begin my second day of yoga teacher training by attending a yoga practice that is self led. I have never done anything like that before so it will be nice to bring this meditation with me today. May I have confidence....

Don't need to ask/offer permission!
I am supremely confident in the things I know, the things I do. Not EVERYTHING in my mind was lost to my stroke! So much is ingrained. I am the same person I was, just with less resources now. 😥 onward and upward!

confidence is something I've struggled with alot through my life, now more than ever. I needed this, I learned that positive affermations can be useful in my life and enjoyed saying them to myself.

Lack of Confidence
The lack of confidence can wear you down. It is usually caused by what you fear. Mostly of failure. But this is what you tell yourself that you’re going to fail. Your body reacts to what your body tells you. So in this, I learned that I must tell myself that I shall have confidence in who I am, of where I go, and what I achieve. May confidence be with you.

Not helpful today
Affirmations often feel awkward for me. This one wished confidence on me with no direction on how to get there. It’s going to be a challenging day (and week), and just wishing confidence isn’t making me feel any better going into this day. I feel flat and need to get motivated to accomplish what I must.

I felt like I could get through the day and be confident as well as relaxed.

Trying
I’ve struggled with my confidence for most of my life. It’s difficult to accept these words, take them to heart, and let them sink in. I will keep trying, but it’s difficult to say them and let myself believe them.

So. much. pain.
My face really hurts and so do my head and neck! I found the meditation validating in a way, on first listen. It's pretty hard to ignore the pain... especially first thing in the AM because I haven't had meds yet. Though it has only been 4 hrs of sleep which is not where I need or want to be.

Building...
Building confidence is an ongoing journey in life. When we are young we gain it by Overcoming Obstacles. But as we get older life’s challenges last longer and we can sometimes feel like they are getting the best of us. This meditation allowed me to soften up and build my confidence on what I already know, where I have already been and who I already am. A nice relief to feel better without having to overcome something. Overall a nice 3min meditation. ❤️👍🏼🍀

Confidence in Myself
I listened to the 7 minute version of this meditation where the affirmations are repeated quite a few times. Makes the confidence affirmations much easier to remember. This was helpful to me as I continue to strengthen myself.

Something I often lack... I felt positive and focussed. The affirmation reminds me that I’m ok and that my life journey gives me knowledge and experience.

I wasn’t looking for confidence in myself
I was more in a mood for reassurance, I thought. I did this meditation anyway because I was in an anxiety spiral, and it was much more helpful than I thought. Reflecting on confidence in myself, where I’ve been, and what I know directed me to look at the bigger picture, which help ease some anxiety about my current situation.

It doesn't take much to build confidence. It's pretty easy to build your confidence. But you can lose your confidence just as quickly as you can build it. Just be comfortable with who you are and don't be afraid to take pride in your past accomplishments. But at the same time, don't gloat and never demean or belittle others. Don't let your failures define you either. Stay strong.

The long and winding road...
With many more miles, bends and turns ahead. Ready to face it and all it’s beauties, heartbreaks and challenges, encouraged by who I already am, where I’ve been and what I know. Namaste

:/
I wish she would have said the phrases in time with breathing instead of just saying all three at once. There was a lot of silence and wasted time. I hate when they start out with "sit down, find a comfortable position, now close your eyes" it's like, i did that when i opened the app lol.

This meditation was aptly timed, as I have been questioning my leadership abilities lately. I needed this moment to reaffirm that who I am, where I’ve been, and what I know are valuable parts of my identity both at work and in my personal life. Namaste.

Reflection 10/5/20
I learned that I need to work on trusting myself. I’m always criticizing myself for “not being perfect,” or acting in a way that I perceive as perfect. It’s okay to not wake up at 5 am every morning to workout. It’s okay to switch up the routine. I will get my workout in AND I will get my work done. I always do. I learned that I have a lot of anxiety surrounding “if” I will do something even though I always do it.

This meditation will help me  considerably. Often times, I feel like my opinions or less valuable ,because I have a lack of life experience. The mantras in this meditation , have not only encouraged need to have confidence in general , but they have also shown me that my life experiences have value. Hopefully being confident in who I am, where I’ve been, and what I know, will increase my confidence in the future. Thank you to those who work for this app . Thank you for putting this track together, and for providing me with helpful advice on how To improve my confidence. Thank you Also for the community on this app for taking time to read this post.

Embarrassing
feelings are difficult to let go May I let go with confidence / no fear Fear - is that the route of self consciousness? Relax and aware
