Hypnosis and Low Self Esteem

During those difficult periods in our lives, we can use hypnosis to plant the seed of a thought into our subconscious mind and stop the issue from troubling us.  A lot of people use hypnosis for weight loss,  stop nail biting - even to overcome their fear of heights! 

But it can be used to change the way we look at life, boosting our self-esteem and bolstering our confidence.  There are so many self-help products available you can make use of to build your self esteem, but suppose those methods aren’t working?

Will hypnosis be successful where others have failed?  Hypnosis can put an idea into your subconscious mind to alter your fears, so that after the session, you just simply get on with life without having the anxiety interfere. 

If you need to build your self-esteem, hypnotherapy can aide you by simply building stepping-stones to a more confident life.  It’s not as easy as just listening to some self-hypnosis CDs and you have great self-esteem – you have to apply what you learn to your interaction with others and build on the new thoughts so that they become the norm.

There are some hypno-therapists who specialize in self-help issues.  But there is the option of doing it yourself, without the help from a professional hypnotist. If you decide to see a professional, they may counsel you before performing hypnosis.

Can anyone be hypnotized? Each person is different. It’s a well documented fact that  anybody who is open to it, can be hypnotized - and those who aren’t open to it, won’t be. Hypnotherapy simply places  the person in a relaxed, trance-like state and then introducing new thought patterns into the mind.

If you’re doubtful of the entire situation, you may never be able to get into a amenable state of mind .

Hypnosis is a great way to help people remove any negative thoughts and influences that hinder their  need to feel great about themselves.  We really should replace these negative thought patterns so that we’re fair to ourselves and allow our good qualities to shine through.  It can diminish the anxiety we feel when we suddenly think we’re simply not clever enough or bright enough to achieve our goals.

We all have hidden doubts and fears, but by using hypnosis, we are able to eliminate many of them and make space for positive thoughts to command our minds and lead us to a more  fearless and optimistic outlook on life. Don't worry be happy.

Overcoming Your Fear of Public Speaking – Article #1 The Effects of Fear

It has been said that the fear of speaking in public is rated at #2 in human fears after #1, snakes, and before #3, the fear of dying. So it is a major obstacle for most people; I would say it affects the majority of people, male and female, all races, nationalities or other “elasticities”.

Effects of fear

What happens to many people is that–even before they start speaking–their heart starts racing, their mouth gets dry, maybe even the knees and legs shake. Some may even get nauseous or feel faint.

Then once they start speaking, the heart rate increases and beats rapidly. The person may hear his heart beat and/or her voice break and tremble. The legs or even the whole body may almost uncontrollable shake. The person may also stutter or start speaking rapidly. We all know people have a tendency to speak too fast when presenting in public.

Although some people calm down, once they get going, others may ramble through the material incoherently.

Do you wonder why many people don’t want to go through that ordeal again?

The reason most people get anxious when required to speak to a group is that they are afraid of looking foolish or stupid in front of many of their peers and important people. They are afraid that their mind will go blank or that their lack of speaking skills will lower the opinion others have of them.

Being humiliated can destroy a person’s ego and confidence. In fact, it can really ruin your day.

It has ruined one day in my life. I will never forget it. I will include this story in my next post.
