The purpose of this spell is to build self confidence, not to change yourself in any way. This is also a spell that may be used over and over again, as you see fit.  It's amazing how easily we let other people and situations break our self confidence.  Use a big gold candle, and collect the drippings from each use to give back to the earth instead of burning it all the way down.

For this spell you might use:

hamethyst, or diamond ( afavorite piece of jewelry perhaps)
ha gold pillar candle {maybe a 3 wick to represent 3 facets of the goddess(and      .   yourself!)}
ha bowl of pure water
hthistle seed(for strength)
ha powder of 2 parts lavender, 1 part catnip, and 1 part marjoram (all for happiness)

My spells have no fancy wording, I simply do the actions, and speak to the god and goddess my wish.
Lay out your altar ( if you build one). Place the bowl of water in the center of the altar, close enough to you that you can see your reflection. Place the gold candle between your altar candles. Light your altar candles first, then your gold pillar.  Place your stone or piece of jewlery in the bowl of water.  Once the surface is still, sprinkle the powder and the thistle seed around the bowl in a clockwise motion (hey newbies!:get used to seeing "deosil" instead of "clockwise").
Watch your reflection in the bowl and envision yourself taking the steps to build your confidence.  Ask the lord and lady to help you. They can't help if you don't ask! Hold the visualization as long as you can, Then lift the stone/jewelry out of the water, kiss it once (to seal the spell) and place it in your pocket or put it on.  Wear/Carry it as long as you need it. To close this spell, I collect the powder and seeds in my hand, sprinkle them on the ground, then pour the water over them.  Occasionally, they even sprout, but if they don't, the birds love the treat! And No the catnip won't draw cats to the birds!
