Confidence is crucial, isn’t it?
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.
In my guide to using meditation to build confidence, I revealed powerful meditations that triple your inner confidence.
Today I’d like to share some powerful mantras for confidence.
How mantras give you confidence
In my ultimate guide to mantras I revealed the secret sciene behind mantras. And we looked at how to use mantras to build inner strength.
One way to use mantras is for confidence.
The mantras for confidence (which I’ve shared below) are like nectar you can pour into your subconscious. They naturally boost your self esteem and self-worth. And they make you feel amazing about… you.
When you use a mantra for confidence you essentially train your mind to learn to think in positive ways.
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 OM, have a specific frequency. Reciting these mantras changes your internal frequency, changing your thoughts, moods and emotions.
Good mantras for confidence
There are many mantras for confidence.
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.

Buddhist Mantras for Confidence
Recite these spiritual mantras 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.
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 life 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.
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 reminds us that we are divine beings. It puts us in touch with our truest self and, in doing so, boost our confidence dramatically.
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
This mantra 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 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.
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.
This mantra translated to:
“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.
