Self Esteem Part 2

Dallas Hypnosis Program for Improving Self Esteem

Before we get further in the articles and how to rebuild your self esteem, I want you to understand that your current behavior or response is resulting from your brain’s programming, it is your biology. But, you can transform that response with new hypnosis program for improving self esteem.  Here are a few things to understand first.

A person’s behavior is expressed from emotions which are subconscious. There is always an emotion either preceding or following a thought, and resulting in a behavior. The way a person feels about themselves (their level of esteem) precedes a behavior.

Here are a few examples: 

Thought, emotion= behavior

I can’t do anything right (thought), shame (emotion), avoidance (behavior)

Emotion, thought = behavior

A person gets the results from a test, feels shame (emotion), I can’t do anything right (emotion) avoidance (behavior)

The difference in this order has to do with the way an individual’s brain processes the information.

Self Esteem: The way a psychologist explains it.

Dr. Nathaniel Braden, author of The Disowned Self states, “the proper processing of one’s thought, feeling and behavior can lead to a fulfilling and joyful life.  If the feeling is stopped or repressed during our developmental years the result is one of two things:  a person who rationalizes their thinking in a way that their personal problems are discussed as if they belong to someone else (disassociation), they have not experienced the emotional meaning.  The other way is the emotionalist who stays in their emotion, let’s say rage, without thinking of the source of the rage, they talk about emotion without really knowing how they feel.  It is all avoidance, avoiding the true inner experience.”

Here is his description of emotions: “emotions are psychosomatic embodiments of value judgments: an integration of ideas, beliefs, and experiences. And once that exists (within one’s self) it is that person’s personal reality. Normally an emotion is expressed then discharged. Denial represses that progression and the emotion becomes stuck.”

How does this affect you?  We have an evaluation of our selves based on feeling or not feeling on a variety of ideas and experiences, which express outwardly in our current adult life below our conscious awareness.
