Boost in Confidence
Thoughts both have a physical and emotional response in our body and mind. Since we have free will and a choice in what we think about, why don’t we always think good thoughts? It’s because of our belief system held deep within our subconscious mind. Once we have made our beliefs, our beliefs make us. Becoming self-fulfilling prophecies, these beliefs form a blueprint for our mind to follow no matter if it is good or bad. Becoming our internal dialogue in how we see ourselves and the world we live in, our thoughts form our reality.
Because I am participating in something at the end of the week that is extremely unfamiliar to me, I have been noticing uneasy thoughts of how I will show up to it, how it will work with my life as well as the venue itself. Knowing that I needed a boost to my confidence, I chose Bradley’s powerful meditation to begin getting myself prepared for this upcoming online silent retreat.
Focusing on energy flowing up and down my spine while placing the tip of my tongue at the roof of my mouth, I inhaled with gratitude and exhaled with appreciation. Having gratitude for this breath and appreciation for everything that has come together for me to be in this moment, I smiled to myself.
Visualizing the best version of myself standing in front of me, I looked deeply into her blue eyes. Seeing her smile back to me while standing tall and proud, I began adjusting my posture to match hers. Feeling her confidence radiating from her eyes, I felt an incredible pull towards her. Merging my body with hers, we became one. Realizing just how far I have come on this journey, I felt proud of myself. Feeling a boost in confidence, I thought good thoughts about myself, which lead me to look at this upcoming retreat in a different light. Thank you, Bradley!
