A Mason Jar Recipe for Confidence

I have an affinity for mason jars.

When I look at them, I see a world of possibility for manifestation, decoration and happiness in general.

All that from a mason jar? Yes. It’s true.

I used mason jars in my wedding to hold plants that were used as party favors. I created a Love Yourself Jar that allowed me to spend more time nurturing myself and I’ve called my tribe into being with a mason jar in one of my eCourses.

In my eyes, when you have an empty glass jar in front of you, the possibilities are endless.

Simply ask what your heart desires and use your mason jar as a vessel to call that which you desire into being.

Today’s Mason Jar Recipe is here to help you create more confidence in your life, business and/or relationships.

Step One

Find yourself a jar. It doesn’t have to be a mason jar. It can be the jar your spaghetti sauce from last night’s dinner came in. (I would just wash it out first.) Leave the top off for a couple of days so it can air out, unless of course you want everything that goes inside your jar to smell of spaghetti sauce in the future. >smiles<

Step Two

Decorate your jar. Use glitter, glass markers, felt and hot glue. Twigs from outside, rocks, and sequins – your options are infinite. You don’t have to go to the craft store to get supplies (although you certainly can).

Look around the house and see what you can find that inspires you. If you have magazines, cut out cool pictures or words and glue them all over your jar. A kind of vision mason jar, if you will. What does your life look like with this new-found confidence? Cut out photos that represent that.

Step Three

Cut out small squares of paper (about 2 inches x 2 inches). And begin writing 3 things you love about yourself. Next, write down the last compliment you received and the name of the person who said it.

From this day forward, write down any and every little thing that lifts your spirits that someone has shared with you, about who you are as a person.

Maybe you visited family and someone told you how lovely you looked. Perhaps the last assignment you turned into your boss impressed him and he told you. Or your significant other deeply thanked you for all that you do for them. Maybe one of your blog readers wrote you an email telling you how much your writing inspired them.

All of these things should be jotted down on your small piece of paper, dated and put in the jar. It’s okay if you only start out with just a couple slips of paper. Before you know it, it’ll be completely full!

Step Four

Every morning when you wake up and every night before you go to bed, visit your jar. Shake it up and pull one slip of paper out. Read it. Close your eyes. And take in a breath of love. Soak up the praise you received from what that paper had to say. Trust that you are loved and appreciated. Celebrated and cherished.

Each moment you take to soak up this confidence and love, The Universe meets you half way. Helping to remove any internal blocks you might have that keep you from fully embracing your greatness.

>deep breath< Ahhhh… that’s nice.
