The word confidence comes from ‘confiance’ which in French means ‘faith’. When you’re confident, you’re not shielding your awareness, you’re able to perceive all that surrounds you…even experiencing its polarities.
The sensation of beauty can be found within an ugly moment…joy can be found within sorrow. Confidence makes it more likely to find these polarities.
Neuroscience has begun to discover why. Studies show the brain’s endogenous electrical field can transmit signals into the electromagnetic fields surrounding your body. These electromagnetic fields are what metaphysics calls your aura. Masters teach that when your aura is strong, you have more physical and mental awareness and more confidence. Your brain transmits signals through your electromagnetic field; it travels out into your world and reflects back through this aura to your brain…it builds.
If you think of beauty — but the surroundings lack obvious beauty — this thought reflects off your surroundings and the returning information inspires you, which transmits out and receives back more signals of beauty…this repeats over and over, self-reflecting millions of times every moment. It appears that beauty actually is in the eyes of the beholder. Also, when you’re surrounded by people of faith, you’ll experience more faith in their presence, as these new studies show — in addition to your brain’s signals traveling through your electromagnetic field, they also travel through the electromagnetic fields of the people around you. This is literally the makeup of a ‘group aura’.
Confidence is the emotional charge that turns this capacity on; allows this communication to happen; opens the brain to its power of transmission beyond the confines of your body. It uses both your aura, and the auras of others…the power of group consciousness.
Our prayer is that you develop your confidence; open your aura to the beauty all around you; extend the power of your mind and leverage your faith to connect with others and achieve your goals through their presence.
