The other day I was having a conversation with a friend. Her confidence in herself was low and she came to me asking how to create more confidence inside her. I took a deep breath and thought for a moment, tapped into my heart and said, “Surrender”. I wish I could pull it out of my pocket and hand it to her, but that’s not possible. And that would take away from the experience of her spiritual awakening that I believe she is having. Surrendering is an experience we all must go through to learn the lessons and freedom it brings. It must be embodied. Confidence comes from within your soul.
Society looks for confidence in personal appearance, job status, material things and beauty. So many people get stuck trying to gain confidence by working on the physical self. It goes much deeper than that. There is underlying fear and expectations when it comes to lack of confidence. Fear of letting yourself down, fear of letting others down, or even fear of others judging you. When we surrender to letting go of the fear and expectations, that everything must go as planned, we embody confidence. When we gain confidence spiritually, we are free to be more open and explore our experience on a completely different level.
So how do we embody confidence? We surrender. We let go of the judgments, the opinions of others, or even self, instead of embodying these false beliefs and allowing them to become our truth. We let go of anything that doesn’t raise our vibration and serve us. This is the real untouched you. Born with confidence and love for self and others, that got tangled up in the false beliefs and false truths about who you are and what you are supposed to be and how you are to contribute to this world. When you surrender you heart opens and you begin to receive self love, freedom and the real truth. The real you underneath the fears and expectations. The intention and energy behind surrender accomplishes much more than trying to control any situation. Confidence can help open yourself to your gifts and continue to follow your lighted path. So, stop fighting with yourself, let go of control and expectations and allow the universe and self-love to flow through you naturally. Surrendering is undeniably a beautiful freedom one can carry through their life!
