Learn how to have more confidence with these mantras to boost your confidence. Covers English mantras for confidence, Buddhist, hindu, vedic and more.
Mantras for confidence are like a nectar you can pour into your subconscious, where it will ferment and bubble into intoxicating levels of self esteem and general awesomeness.
When you use a mantra for confidence you essentially train your mind to learn to think in positive ways. Mantras stay in you, circulating your mind, breeding positivity. In other words, if you spend ten minutes reciting a confidence mantra you’ll feel the effect for a long time.
Mantras work in two ways. Firstly, the message of a mantra resonates within your mind and creates associate thoughts. Essentially, if you say “I am an awesome person” 108 times, your mind will start to find ways in which you really are awesome. This is the first way mantras work.
The second way mantras work is through frequencies. Buddhist mantras, for instance (like OM) have a specific frequency. Reciting these mantras changes your internal frequency, changing your thoughts, moods and emotions.
So, what are some good mantras for confidence?
There are many. There are confidence mantras in English, in Hindu, Buddhist, Vedic, Yogic and in many other spiritualities. To begin with, let’s take a look at some non-spiritual confidence mantras in English.
English Mantras for Confidence
Here is a selection of excellent mantras for confidence that are not spiritual or religious, but which are nevertheless very powerful.
“I appreciate myself and welcome positive thoughts and feelings into my being.”
“I am a great person and deserve to feel great.”
“I am secure in myself and do not compare myself to others.”
“I am a healthy, happy, positive person.”
“I like me.”
“I embrace my positive qualities and value myself highly.”
Buddhist Mantras for Confidence
“My heart and mind are open”
WHY it works
It is important to always have an open heart and mind. When your heart is opening you allow other people into your life. You also allow yourself into your own heart. You must accept yourself and all others with love and kindness. This is best achieved through an open heart. And an open mind is important for lessening the grip negative thoughts have on you.
“Slowly, appreciatively, and with gratitude”
WHY it works
Because when you are stressed out you tend to race around. I know personally that when I suffered from depression and anxiety I felt that I was always inwardly rushing while achieving nothing outwardly. When you go slow, take your time, appreciate everything and express gratitude you achieve a much more positive state of mind.
“The easy way’s the best way”
WHY it works
Well to start off its true. I know personally that I have a terrible habit of making everything unnecessarily difficult, as though I’m just attracted to drama. This mantra tells me to chill, to stop being so rushed and to take it EASY. Why make stuff hard when it doesn’t need to be?
VEDIC AND HINDU CONFIDENCE MANTRAS
Okay, so we’ve covered the English mantras for confidence and some Buddhist mantras for confidence. Now time for Hindu and vedic mantras. These are powerful mantras that will help you to find deep and long lasting confidence.
Mantra for Confidence 2: Om Namah Shivaya
Om Nimah Shavaya can be translated to mean “I bow to Shiva, supreme deity, the truest and highest self. It is saying “I honour that which is divine within my being.”
This mantra, then, reminds us that we are divine beings. It puts us in touch with our truest self and, in doing so, boost our confidence dramatically.
Mantra for Confidence 3: Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
A translation of this mantra would be, “May everyone be free and experience happiness, and may my own actions, thoughts and words be instrumental towards the freedom and happiness of others.”
This is a very effective mantra for developing loving kindness towards ourselves and others. It is centred on compassion, both for self and others. When we achieve self love with this mantra we encourage the development of self confidence.
Mantra for Confidence 4: Om Gum Ganapatayei Namah
This mantra is Hindu and is in devotion to Ganesh, the god of success and wisdom and the destroyer of obstacles. A literal translation would be, “I devote myself to Ganesh, who removes obstacles. I pray for blessing and protection.”
This mantra is more about removing negatives in our lives rather than promoting positives. A lack of confidence is one such obstacle. When we show devotion to Ganesh it is said that we will remove this obstacle from our lives.
I hope you find these mantras helpful.
