Is Self Esteem Learned Or Earned?

According to Wikipedia: “Self-esteem reflects a person's emotional evaluation of his or her own worth. It is a judgment of oneself as well as an attitude toward the self. It encompasses beliefs (for example, "I am competent", "I am worthy", I’m not good enough,”) and emotions such as triumph, pride, and shame.” According to Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, self-esteem is one of our ‘basic needs’ after food, safety and love. Everyone agrees that those with positive self-esteem achieve more of their goals and have healthier relationships, resulting in a happier life. The question then becomes, how can I evaluate or improve my own self-esteem? Do I learn positive self-esteem or do I earn it? The answer is both! One of the first questions to ask yourself is, “Do my feelings about myself depend on what others think of me?”  If you find that your feelings about yourself vary depending on whom you are with and how they make you feel, you probably need to strengthen your self-esteem. Although not everyone is going to like you, just like you don’t like everyone else, your feelings about yourself should not change. It’s normal to feel bad if someone criticizes you or is unkind to you but hurt feelings do not have to change the way you feel about yourself.

Self-esteem begins to develop from birth. As a child, your beliefs about yourself were formed by the messages you heard from the important people in your life. It begins with your immediate family and soon encompasses friends, teachers and social situations. Although there is some genetic component to self-esteem, it is never cast in stone. For example, if you were teased by siblings and classmates you probably developed a low self esteem thought pattern regarding friends and social situations. You could have been good at art or math and developed positive self esteem thought patterns regarding those areas. It is common to have confidence in one area and feel insecure in others.  The solution is to not let your shortcomings affect your self-esteem. Because no one is perfect, one of the most effective ways to improve your self-esteem is to accept those things about yourself you cannot change and celebrate your strengths.  Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. By focusing on only your negative qualities, your self-esteem weakens, but by focusing on your positive qualities your self-esteem will get stronger. The first step is, of course, awareness.  Observe your self -talk. What do you notice is your habit, or pattern of thought, positive or negative? As an adult, obsessive thinking can trigger negative feelings from the past while in social gatherings creating thoughts like: “No one seems to talk to me, or I don’t like crowds.” As you repeat these thoughts, the negatives beliefs increase. Remember, a belief is nothing more than a thought that you have repeated over and over again. Often our negative thought patterns, as adults, are from someone’s opinion of you from the past, but it was just their opinion! By repeating the thoughts, your negative self-esteem becomes worse. You can change that by changing your thought patterns.

I am reminded of a client who came to me for weight loss and had poor self-esteem as a result of her weight.  She defined her value by the weight she was carrying.  She was sure she would like herself better if she lost weight.  In hypnosis it became obvious that she ate to make herself feel better and the poor self esteem created the over eating.  She realized that her body was only one small part of who she was and that she really loved the person she was inside. When she focused on those qualities, overeating became unnecessary and she has begun to lose weight.

I found a wonderful resource for those of you who would like to learn more about how you can improve your self-esteem. Visit http://www.self-esteem-experts.com/how-to-increase-self-esteem.html. Remember, all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. When will you begin to change your negative thought patterns?

Can Hypnosis Help People With Diabetes?

The simplest and most obvious answer is, of course!  The second question is: how can hypnosis help diabetes?  There is a distinct difference between type 1 and 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is the one I will focus on in this article. 

Its impossible to ignore the reports that diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in our country.  Many people I know are diagnosed as either diabetic or pre-diabetic. The  consequences of unmanaged diabetes are frightening and can be devastating. Although diabetes is officially incurable, type 2 diabetes can be managed into remission.  I have helped several people manage their diabetes by helping them change their relationship with food. I recently had a client who came to me because she was on a lot of medicine for her diabetes and noticed her feet were beginning to bother her and she was scared. She was drinking 10 cups of coffee a day and would not eat vegetables.  She felt helpless and hopeless.  During our session I focused on her relationship with her body, which she was clearly abusing and taking for granted.  She wanted to eat vegetables and develop a healthier relationship with her body.  When she returned, 1 week later, for her follow-up visit and was very pleased and surprised!  Her blood sugar had dramatically changed. She was down to 1 cup of coffee a day and had incorporated several vegetables into her daily routine.  By the third week, her doctor had cut her meds in half and she is soon to reduce that further.  Our bodies respond almost immediately to healthy changes in diet and exercise.  Hypnosis is the fastest, most effective way to help you make those changes that can become permanent habits.

An article in the Diabetes Research Association of America, decribes several specific examples of people using hypnosis to change their insulin requirements and sometimes eliminated the need for insulin.  There are several ways that hypnosis can help with type 2 diabetes: 1. Change eating habits  2. Create a motivation to exercise 3. Manage pain 4.  Decrease desire for junk or unhealthy food  5.  Resolve emotional issues relating to over eating  6.  Change perspective that sometimes creates feelings of hopelessness or helplessness.  7. Provide tools and skills for practicing self-hypnosis for ongoing success.  8.  Teach stress reducing skills.

Diabetes, like so many other common medical conditions we suffer from are life style diseases. Life style diseases are those that are clearly related to eating habits, exercise habits, drinking habits, sleeping habits and stress managing habits.  Medication becomes an easy way out but the long term effects are not good. Changing life style choices are so simple but it is not always easy…Hypnosis can make it easier!  Often clients tell me, “I love sweets!” or “I love comfort foods!”  After hypnosis, they soon redefine sweets as cantaloupe, berries, watermelon or other fruits realizing they don’t have to give up sweets! Even easier is the realization that ‘comfort foods’ make them feel really uncomfortable and they need to focus on how they will feel when they have finished consuming the foods.  Because a belief is nothing more than a thought that gets repeated over and over again, it is not necessarily true.  When they change the belief about sweets and comfort foods, changing old habits becomes easy!

Luckily, type 2 diabetes can almost be eliminated with life style changes and healthy choices.
