There are many powerful mantras for confidence and self esteem that you can use to produce positive starts and to feel good about yourself.

When you feel confident you take risks, you dare to dream, you push yourself, you achieve great things.

But I’m sure you will agree: it’s not always easy to have confidence today.

With all the stress and pressure put on us, we could all use some great confidence-boosting tricks. One great place to start is with these meditations for confidence.

Today I’d like to share some powerful mantras for confidence.

Why use mantras for confidence?

In my ultimate guide to mantras I revealed the secret sciene behind sacred sound and chants. And we looked at how to use these things to build inner strength.

One way to use mantras is for confidence.

Mantras are repeated words or phrases (similar to affirmations or spells) that are used in yoga, Hinduism ad Buddhism. Unlike affirmations, they have spiritual powers that create psychological effects, and yes, that includes the ability to build confidence.

The mantras for confidence that I have shared below, work in two ways. There are English ones that are essentially affirmations. And there are actual spiritual mantras from yoga, Hinduism and Buddhism. These chants change your inner frequency, creating positive energy.

Now listen guys:

If you truly want to build confidence, you should also use chanting and Japa (meditative recitations) to get rid of the negative influences that are lowering your confidence.

For instance, anxiety and depression are two of the big reasons why so many people have bad self confidence.

But thankfully there are some good mantras to eliminate those problems. You can find all of them in my list of mantras for the mind.

Have a read of that link (above). It will show you how to remove anxiety, depression, and any other problem that might be interfering with your self confidence.

Good mantras for confidence

Combine the following with my meditations to build confidence.

To begin with, let’s take a look at some non-spiritual confidence affirmations in English.

 English affirmations

Here is a selection of excellent affirmations for self esteem that are not spiritual or religious, but which are nevertheless very powerful.

Recite each of these mantras 10 times.

When you do this, notice any negative thoughts that crop up. If you experience negative thoughts, you can change your thoughts with CBT


Recite these for a happy spirit.


“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

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.

Go slow, take your time, appreciate everything and express gratitude. This will help you to have a more positive state of mind and to be happier.


“The easy way’s the best way”

WHY it works

Well to start off it is true.

I know personally that I have a terrible habit of making everything unnecessarily difficult, as though I’m just attracted to drama. This affirmation tells me to chill, to stop being so rushed and to take it EASY. Why make life hard when it doesn’t need to be?


Okay, so we’ve covered the English mantras for confidence and some Buddhist mantras for confidence. Now time for Hindu and vedic ones.

These are powerful spiritual chants that will help you to find deep and long lasting confidence.


 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 reminds us that we are divine beings. It puts us in touch with our truest self and, in doing so, boosts our confidence dramatically.


Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu

 This means:

“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 one is very effective 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.


Om Gum Ganapatayei Namah

This is Hindu and is said in devotion to Ganesh, the god of success and wisdom and the destroyer of obstacles.

It translates to:

“I devote myself to Ganesh, who removes obstacles. I pray for blessing and protection.”

This chant 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.

You probably will encounter some negative thoughts when you use these. If this happens to you, use of my tips to kill negative thoughts.
