How we view ourselves at the beginning and end of every day is a huge factor for our self-esteem and mental health. How we view ourselves, our beliefs, and our self-worth is a driving force behind our positive and negative feelings.

Unfortunately, in today’s society, low self-esteem is far too common as influencers and social media paint pictures of perfect lives. While there is no such thing as a perfect life, these false images lower individuals’ self-worth and create false narratives.

When we constantly have these images forced upon us, our self-esteem can take a massive hit and negative thoughts become more and more frequent.

The Importance of Self-Esteem

How we value ourselves is ever-changing. On a daily basis, our thoughts, feelings, and emotions change so frequently that our self-esteem can often fluctuate positively and negatively. When we’re told that we’re doing a great job at work and to keep it up, our self-esteem gets a nice boost and we’re flying high. If we’re in public and someone makes it known that they aren’t a fan of our outfit, we begin to question ourselves. What don’t they like? Is it just the outfit? Is it because I’m too heavy? Does my hair look messy too? Our thoughts begin to race and our self-esteem begins to falter.

Self-esteem is a driving force behind who we are, how we operate, how much motivation we have, and what we strive to be. People who have higher levels of self-esteem are more likely to be highly motivated and strive to be the best of their ability. They view themselves more positively and allow negativity to fall by the wayside.

Individuals with lower levels of self-esteem are typically less motivated and allow themselves to be influenced by others’ words and actions. They are more likely to let little things affect them and dwell on them longer than necessary.

Our self-esteem is an extremely important element of our lives and is a driving force behind our makeup.

Starting Points to Boost Self-Esteem

Meditation for Self-Esteem

Improving your self-esteem can come from various sources. A few very common ways to do this are:

  • Improve your diet. You are what you eat.
  • Exercising regularly.
  • Positivity comes from the people you choose to surround yourself with.
  • Do what you enjoy and avoid what you don’t.
  • Improve your sleep pattern.

Helping and improving yourself is more than just changing one element in your life. It’s a combination of steps and elements that lead to a larger, more impactful change.

 

Meditation for Self-Esteem

Thinking more positively about your self-esteem is helpful, but it won’t transition into results that you’ll be happy with. A tactical solution to become more mindful and improve your self-esteem is through meditation.

Meditation for your self-esteem will help you realign, re-center, re-focus, and allow you to pass negative thoughts without any judgment. Opening up and allowing yourself to look at yourself objectively initially will be like a blank canvas for your thoughts. There’s nothing there and you get to show what you want.

You’ll begin to find your true self and better accept and embrace yourself. You’ll become more immersed in your well-being so you can be more present and live in the moment. When you can be more present and mindful, your confidence can grow as you no longer focus on the negatives.

When you become more aware of your negativity, you’re conscious of it. It’s in your mind. It can consume you and alter your life. Through the use of meditation, you’ll allow yourself to not block these negative thoughts, but allow them to pass by.

Meditation is more than just a few sessions of thinking about yourself and trying to block out the negativity. It’s a routine, a lifestyle, a change in your mindset that needs to become a regular practice.

 

Start Your Meditative Journey

Start Your Meditative Journey To start your meditative journey to become more mindful, self-aware, and increase your self-esteem, you first need to be open. Allow yourself to be open and think freely. Thoughts will come and go and it’s important to allow them to do so.

To get started, find a calm, quiet place in your home where you can be free from distractions. Once here, get comfortable and slowly close your eyes and allow yourself to drift away.

Next, slowly inhale and exhale in a slow, methodical, and purposeful way so you can begin to transport yourself into a deeply relaxed state.

With your eyes closed and your relaxed state starting to set in, think of a time when you had a less than pleasurable experience with your self-esteem and how you would do it differently. Think about the steps you could’ve taken and how when that situation comes around the second time, you’ll be properly prepared for it. This is a visualization technique (Link to Visualization Post) that will help you play out in-depth scenarios in a positive way.

Once completed, take note of your experience, your thoughts, and your emotions so as you continue through your meditative journey, you’ll notice progress after each session. Remember, it’s not an immediate change. It will take time and effort to get to where you want to be.

Guided Meditation Sessions

If you’re feeling short on self-esteem, it could be taking your focus away from important things in life and inhibiting your self-actualization. To combat this, we provide GMS (Guided Meditation and Suggestion) therapy to help you build your self-esteem.

This is done by accessing your unconscious mind to relate to feelings of self-worth, self-value, and gently reconnect them with those areas of your life where you feel most vulnerable. We create a protective honeycomb-like, mental environment where self-esteem is built of various experiences that cannot be destroyed all at once.

Start your meditative journey with Theta to lead a more positive, healthy life that you deserve today.
