Confidence & Self Esteem

What Causes Low Self-Confidence?

Both self-esteem and self-confidence are believed to be formed by past experiences. Throughout life, we receive a lot of negative and positive messages – which can have a significant impact how we feel about ourselves.

This feedback can come from our peers, our family, the media. And unfortunately, we’re more responsive and receptive to negative messages – they’re much more likely to get filed away in the subconscious.

Trauma too can have a significant impact on our self-esteem and self-confidence. Traumatic experiences can diminish our feelings of self-worth and our sense of trust.


You Can Improve Your Self-Esteem

There’s hope. You can fix your mind’s negative thinking patterns.

In fact, low self-esteem is a lot like a glitch in your mind. You’ve taught yourself, through repetitive thinking over your lifetime, how to feel about yourself and your abilities in certain situations.

But self-esteem is flexible. At different periods in our lives, it can be high, or low. We can learn to improve it or make adjustments.

In other words, we aren’t doomed to lives of low self-esteem. It’s very possible to build and increase self-esteem. And it’s possible to overcome these automatic thoughts – reduce and eliminate them from our inner monologues.

And that’s the key to improving your self-confidence and self-esteem.

How Can Hypnosis Help?

When we’re in a state of hypnosis, our brains become highly receptive to suggestion.

Therefore, when we hear mantras in this state like, “you will feel confidence in everything you do,” they’re much more likely to stick. We’ve bypassed that critical conscious layer that’s always so quick to qualify and analyze suggestions.

Now, you might be thinking: Is that really all there is to it? And the short answer is: Yes.

Sure, hypnosis for low self-esteem can be highly complex; a hypnotherapist can use numerous techniques for empowering and repairing the subconscious mind.

But whatever the technique, the idea is the same: In a state of hypnosis, we’re able to add newer, more helpful and more supportive information to the subconscious. And at the same time, we can work to release the negative thinking patterns that are causing our self-esteem issues in the first place.
