Dee Wallace talks us through our understanding of confidence and its implication on our lives
When I go into an audition, I have to have the confidence within me that I can deliver a good read. I have to have confidence in my healing that I can make a difference in someone’s life by the information that comes through. I have to have confidence before I even sit down to write this article. The one common principle in all these adventures: I have learned to trust my channel. Always and without question.
That is, of course, quite the opposite of what we have been taught. The definition of confidence is: full trust. And yet, our society has educated us in the belief that we can never trust our own judgment, and God forbid we really trust anyone outside of ourselves; and it is actually impossible to trust ALL energy. Quite a conundrum, don’t you agree? If creation takes confidence, and confidence is trust, and we are taught we can’t trust, then we can never be the confident vibration that creates. Ergo, the more you go into your mental mind to reason, figure and stay safe, the less confidence you experience in the creation process. And then the pattern of limited creation begins again.
I mean, I couldn’t walk into Mr. Speilberg’s office without any confidence and book E.T. You can’t even have successful love making without confidence. And yet, we ask the Universe to deliver to us when we aren’t confident in the trust within ourselves to create it, or to handle the creation when we do. So, the Universe, being the very wise director it is, must experience your confidence to manifest your desire.
So, how does one create confidence?
Now there’s the enigma. We have to move into knowing, to have the confidence to create, so we will have more confidence that we can! And that is why turning yourself over to your higher self works better than mentally struggling with the illusion that doing more, and doing it more intensely, creates confidence. When we hold the intention that trust and truth be delivered to us, we can get out of the way and release the doubt that is crippling us.
To do that, we must be balance our masculine, feminine and child energy, and the magnetism within each. Like procreation, the masculine must come together with the feminine IN BALANCE, meet in harmony, and create the child, a.k.a. the creation. The divine idea/instinct/guidance must be taken out into the world with power by the masculine to successfully create. When that happens, confidence is truly in place.
So, ask yourself: do I have a lot of great, inspired ideas that I never do anything with? If the answer is yes, know that you need to balance the masculine so you have more power to deliver your ideas to the world. Or do you push and work and strive doing ANYthing, just to try and create, without a lot of success? Stop and take time to nurture your feminine. Allow your channel to open and receive divine guidance, and then use the power that is in place to radiate that out. Then the creation is automatically in place, and confidence is reinforced.
Confidence is not something you get. Confidence is the vibration of knowing that you are. Be the knowing of the Creative Force that is you, and confidence is a no-brainer. Literally.
