How do you love and value yourself? Low self-esteem, the silent saboteur

"Self esteem is the reputation we acquire with ourselves."  Nathaniel Branden

Have you ever experienced that time, when nothing goes your way? Relationships get sour, The boss is always breathing down your neck, and you don't feel good about yourself and just want to give it all up?

The chances are there are some self- sabotaging programs running in your consciousness, without even you even knowing it.

One of these silent saboteurs are low self-esteem or low self- love. Low self-esteem can arise from many different reasons, Family conditioning, past hurt, anger failures and much more. Surprisingly most of the people going through low self esteem issues don't even realize it until there is professional intervention.

The first time I encountered low self-esteem issues within myself, my first reaction was - "But I do love and value myself". It was only through some really deep work through Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), I became aware of how I really let myself get pulled deeper and deeper and disconnected from myself.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (tapping) is clinically proven to lower stress, tension, anxiety, past-trauma to enable health, happiness and vitality.

I used to think that loving myself was shopping. Oh boy! I was wrong. At the EFT Practitioner Training in Mumbai, I realized that all of the needless shopping was only my way of dealing with my low self-esteem. Unfortunately, it did help me overcome what was really at the root of it all.

At the EFT Practitioner Training, I was able to get to the root of all of the layers of unwanted emotions and eliminate them from there. The result - All the unnecessary shopping stopped. What was even more amazing was that I could see my future clearly, my relationships improved and I saw an overall improvement in the quality of my life.

One of the stories that I came across at the EFT Practitioner Training never ceases to amaze me is that of Smita Pande. Here's what she had to say, “I have had a good life, however, I never knew what genuine happiness actually is. The only thing I wanted to do in life was to recognise my potential. When the EFT Practitioner Training ended, I sensed a complete emotional transformation, finally experiencing the true happiness. Right after the workshop, I chose a different road for my life. This ‘new journey’ was the one taken to discover myself. My first step was to do something of my own, so I decided to become a counselor. 

I felt confident and empowered as these baby steps progressively matured and expanded. I feel blessed that I followed EFT as a tool that appease all the life challenges I faced. Physically and emotionally, I feel gratitude for everything I have which has helped me achieve peace and happiness from deep within. I get tremendous joy in helping my family, friends and clients by releasing their negative emotions and making them feel empowered and happy,” Smita Pande. 

In closing, although it may not seem like much at the onset, low self-esteem issues can be debilitating to the overall quality of your life, and may arise at any time. It doesn't take a lot to start blaming and undervaluing yourself. What is important is that you are able to pull yourself out of it with the right tools. You can start uncovering all your buried emotions by using EFT.

In summary, people mistake temporary objects as a means of self love. However, self love and self esteem are influenced by the thoughts and feelings we carry within ourselves. Identifying our potential and accepting ourselves is the objective we should aim for. EFT is the best technique to give you an insight into your thoughts and limiting beliefs that are stopping you from achieving greatness.
