Spells to Banish Insecurities and Boost Confidence
If you suffer from insecurities, you know how much they can affect your life. Confidence can be a person's most attractive characteristic -- without it, you miss out on friendships, love, and even employment. While it can take years to overcome insecurities, you can use spells to help boost your self-worth and project the strong, confident image you desire.
Burn Away Insecurity
For this spell, you will need:
This spell involves fire, and is best performed outdoors. To begin, make a list of all of the things that make you feel insecure. When the list is complete, fold it in half. Say...
These insecurities are imaginary.
I notice them more than anyone else does.
They do not hold me back from being strong, confident, and successful.
Light the candle, and say...
With this flame, I banish these feelings of insecurity.
Light the paper in the flame, then drop it into the fireproof bowl. Allow the fire to burn away your feelings of insecurity. Let the candle burn as long as possible. When you are through, dispose of the ashes and candle remnants far from your home.
An Herb Sachet for Confidence
Once you have burned away your feelings of insecurity, you can replace them with confidence. To help with this, you may wish to make an herb sachet or mojo bag to carry with you. You will need:
- A fabric pouch, preferably in orange or gold
- Borage leaves
- High John the Conqueror root
- Dried orange peel
- A black tourmaline
- A bloodstone
- A tiger's eye
Place each ingredient in the bag. As you do this, take a moment to hold each in your dominant hand and visualize it filling with a warm, protective light. Ask the ingredients for their help to feel supported, strong, and confident. When you are through, tie the pouch shut. Keep it on you, close to your skin. When you need a boost of confidence, hold the pouch in your hands, give it a squeeze, and breathe in its scent.
Enchant a Confidence Talisman
Crystals are an excellent way to help you feel confident. Not only are they beautiful, they can impart their spiritual vibrations to you. You may wish to enchant a special piece of jewelry to help you be more confident. All you need is:
- A piece of jewelry. A Willpower & Confidence bracelet is an ideal choice, but you can also use an aventurine bracelet, tiger's eye pendant, or other special piece
- Orange blossom oil
First, cleanse the piece of jewelry thoroughly. You can do this by placing it in sunlight or full moonlight, holding it in fresh running water, or using a bell, tuning fork, or music. This will clear the jewelry's vibrations, so you can program it with your intent.
Next, hold the piece of jewelry in your dominant hand. Visualize it filling with energy, as you picture yourself moving smoothly and confidently through life. Imagine yourself full of success and self-assurance. Say...
By these stones, I am full of confidence and feelings of self-worth.
There is nothing I cannot do if I put my mind to it.
Anoint the jewelry with a drop of orange blossom oil. Say...
Sweet orange blossom, calm my nerves and fill me with inner strength.
Wear the jewelry whenever you need a boost. Cleanse it and repeat the ritual any time you feel that it can use a little refresher.
A Candle Spell to Banish Insecurity
There are other ways to use candle magic to get rid of your feelings of insecurity. For this, you will need:
To begin, carve the words "I feel insecure" in the wax of the black candle, along with all of the reasons why you experience insecurity. Hold the candle in your hands, and visualize all of these negative feelings draining out of you and entering the wax. You might picture them as a dark gray sludge, or a prickly energy that leaves your body and goes into the candle instead. When you are ready, put the candle back in the holder and light it. Say...
Candle burn, wax melt away.
These thoughts trouble me no more this day.
Let the candle burn away completely. If you have to leave it unattended, snuff it and re-light it when you return.
When the black candle has melted away completely, take the white candle in hand. Carve "I feel confident" in the wax, as well as all of the things you like about yourself. Hold this candle in your hands, and visualize it filling with a soothing, golden glow. Place the candle in the holder on top of the remains of the black candle, and light it. Say...
By the glow of this candle flame,
I feel calm and confident again.
Let the white candle burn completely, just like the black one. The remains of the white wax will cover the black wax, banishing your insecurities. When the spell is through, dispose of the remains of both candles far from your home.
Confidence can be hard to come by. Sometimes, it can feel like life just grinds you down and robs you of your self-worth. With these spells, you can help overcome your feelings of insecurity and move forward feeling self-assured and at ease.
