Confidence is something you see, hear and experience. It can feel sexy, self-assured and stable. There are many reasons we want to have confidence. Confidence to do something we are scared to, confidence to communicate our message and confidence for enjoying the feeling of being confident.
So why do so many struggle to find confidence? And, why do so many feel it is a lack of confidence that is holding them back?
I believe that when you can clearly articulate what you want then you can navigate a pathway to achieve it. Otherwise you’re taking random stabs in the dark hoping you may accidentally land on what you want.
What is confidence
You know that you are confident when you don’t feel like you have to justify yourself, when you feel sure about your opinion or decision. Confidence often means being able to articulate an opinion or facts without getting the wobbles in the process.
Having confidence doesn’t mean you don’t feel fear, but it does mean you can move beyond fear and into bravery.
One of the wonderful aspects of feeling confident is that feeling that you are enough with what you have and you don’t need more. You know when you are in the presence of someone who is confident because you feel it. It feels safe to be in the presence of confidence. That feeling you get when you think 'I've got this'.

I’d like to take you on a journey of understanding, because maybe it’s less confidence you are looking for and more about overcoming some common fears. When we understand what is happening to us then it is easier to take steps to overcome it.
When we overcome some of our base fears that’s when we step into our brave and then the confidence comes. You can’t think your way into confidence, it requires action. It is fears that get in the way of that action and that creates a cycle of breaking down your confidence.
My hope for you in reading this is that you more easily find your brave, understand that lack of confidence is natural, and most of all, it doesn’t have to stop you from doing what you want.

Many healers have been on a journey to become healers over many years and through many personal experiences. They can come from professional and corporate backgrounds or could have studied m
