Confidence affects our lives in so many ways. Are we confident enough to drive a car operate machinery, to make that difficult phone call? Are we confident enough to ask for a raise or a new role at work? Do we feel confident enough to talk to that man or woman we have been secretly admiring?

An alternative word for confidence is self-assurance. But, if we are not feeling confident, what can we do to improve it?

Every morning is a new start, a new opportunity to do things, learn things, and advance our lives one more step along our life path purpose. It is a point where I can say “all is well”. I am awake, I am alive and I have potential and my angels and guides are watching over me.

So, at the start of the day I take a few moments after breakfast to tell myself, I love me. If I do not love myself, how can I love other people. How can I love my family, my pets and people close to me if “I” is not loved and appreciated? Whatever point in your life you are at, it is the soul in you that has gotten you there. It may not be perfect where you are, but it is still good for you. 

Next, I thank all my angels and guides for what they have done for me, they watch over me and help me when I as for their help, which is always! It didn’t use to be. I was aware of the “idea” of angels and guides in the sense of a guardian angel, one guardian angel. When something went dramatically well, such as not being involved in an accident while driving, I would thank my guardian angel. But it is not just one guardian angel that looks out for use. We have several and they each play a different role.

Ultimately, being attuned to Reiki showed me the path that opened my eyes and soul to the angels and guides that are as much a part of our lives as the physical people around us.

So, every morning. I tell myself I love me, for what and who I am. I thank the Universe for all of its gifts, material and other wise, and I ask for my angels and guides to help me though the day. This includes giving me the gift of confidence and self-assurance. At the end of this quiet moment, I sit quietly and feel the presence of my angels and guides and the self-assurance that is now in me. I tell the universe and all my angels and guides that “All is well.”

I carry that feeling with me for the rest of the day. When I need a boost of self-confidence, I think back to that feeling that I had first thing in the morning.

At home in the evening, before I go to bed, I sit quietly and repeat my morning session, but this time I am thankful for what transpired during the day. It is important to show gratitude for the day, and that you are home and ready to go to bed. It is important to tell the universe and all my angels and guides that “All is well.” It maybe that any negative energies you have encountered during the day are with you and that your busy mind has focused on negative things that it says will be waiting for you tomorrow, but really All is well. You are strong, and you are a thinking feeling soul in a human body that allows you to experience the world around you, even if what you see when you look, may not be the happiest it can be. 

The fact you have angels and guides, you have free will and you have people and material things in your life that help you and guide you.

I end this evening session with my Reiki and Shaman guides which have come to me through and after my Reiki attunement. They are the ones I reach out to for help and guidance and they also warn me of things that will have an unfortunate outcome. They love me unconditionally and are always there to help me, as are all of my guides if and when I call of them.

Our soul is here to learn lessons for its spiritual growth, which will be part of its karma. Difficult and hurtful things that occur to us are part of what the soul needs to grow. Awareness of our angels and guides helps the soul manage and grow from the experience of its human container and Reiki study and ultimately attunement helps with the situations that occur, and, their effect on our soul and its karma.
