Every change we want to make seems to be a challenge. It’s difficult to stay on course, and do something while the mind is yelling at us that we’d rather not.
Here’s one way to look at it:
Negative self-talk is like an addiction.
We might feel the pain our addiction is causing. We might see the effect it’s having on our relationships. We might literally see that it’s destroying our emotional health or our performance at work, or in social situations, or for whatever our mind is telling us that we can’t do. But yet, we can’t stop. We can’t seem to shut those thoughts off.
It’s just like the urge the addict “hears” telling them to use again.
Hypnosis can be extremely successful for low self-esteem, because its goal is to repair the mind.
Hypnosis helps to re-teach the subconscious to be a supportive partner in our day-to-day lives. We’re taking out those irrational, negative thoughts, and re-programming the subconscious with more helpful information.
How exactly does this work?
Think of Hypnosis as meditation with a goal. For centuries, meditation has been used to help people learn to tame the mind, to find inner peace, and quiet automatic thinking.
Yet, Hypnosis takes this one step further – Hypnosis adds a goal.
Here’s how: During a Hypnotherapy session, we’ll guide your body and mind to a state of heightened relaxation and awareness. (Much like you’d expect from deep meditation.)
In this very physically relaxed state your mind also becomes completely relaxed, and we’re able to access the subconscious. In fact, we can bypass the critical mind and go straight to that inner voice and speak directly to it.
What’s more, when you’re in a state of Hypnosis, your brain become highly receptive to suggestion.
Therefore, when you 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!
Hypnosis for low self-esteem can also be highly complex; we need to use numerous techniques for empowering, repairing and understanding the subconscious mind. But whatever the technique, the idea is the same: to get you to feel better!
In a state of Hypnosis, we’re able to add new, more helpful and more supportive information to the subconscious.
So we work to release the negative thinking patterns that are causing low self-esteem issues in the first place.
