High self-esteem is very important if not crucial to our happiness and well-being. Having high self-esteem can make a huge difference in our approach to life, which in turn affects how much we achieve. A high self- esteem also allows us to have healthy and joyful relationships with others, to experience true intimacy.
Poor self-esteem, on the other hand, tends to create an experience of negativity, including depression, anxiety, fear, stress and loneliness. Negative or poor self-esteem is also highly correlated with alcohol and drug dependency. Some even believe that a negative or poor self-image is the source of such addictions.
While it may seem the importance of high self-esteem is little understood, the question has always been about how to improve a person’s self-esteem.
Some believe that a person’s self-esteem depends on how successful they are in accomplishing the goals they have set for themselves.
Others believe that our sense of self-esteem is determined by the type of relationships that we have, that by surrounding ourselves with positive people we will be positive ourselves.
Whatever you believe, there is only one certainty, self-esteem cannot be achieved through external means, it comes from within you.
One very effective way to improve self-esteem is through the use of positive affirmations. Positive affirmations are very powerful for transforming how a person feels and thinks about himself, ultimately influencing how he views and acts within the world and towards others.
The fundamental reason why positive affirmations are so effective is that their nature or structure reflects what already exists in our mind. Our identity or who we think we are, our current thinking patterns, are just a series of affirmations, formed in our minds from a combination of all your life experience from the day you were born up to now.
All our thoughts are just affirmations. Positive affirmations, when used consistently, begin to alter our internal language patterns, helping to turn negative self-talk to positive self-talk.
The most effective way to use positive affirmations is with your own voice. While you can have a positive result from listening to a commercially developed product that employs positive affirmations recorded by a professional, the transformative power of this technology is enhanced by the positive messages being delivered in your own voice.
By using your own voice to transform the inner dialogue, there is less resistance to the transformational process due to the fact that the voice itself is your own voice. It’s like you’re really talking to yourself instead of someone talking to you.
The process of using your own voice with positive affirmations can be strengthened with the use of therapeutic relaxation music. While the use of your own voice is very powerful for creating change in in your life, the use of specially designed therapeutic relaxation music increases that power, add binaural beats to the music and you’ll supercharge the power of the affirmations.
The technology for creating positive affirmations recorded in your own voice with therapeutic relaxation music is currently being employed in the treatment of those suffering from substance dependency problems at the Holistic Addiction Treatment Program in North Miami Beach, Florida.
Clients have the ability to create personal affirmations that empower them and support their recovery by recording their own affirmations. The recorded positive affirmations are then mixed with specially designed therapeutic relaxation music to create a powerful audio product to assist them in their recovery.
Once created the client is trained in the most effective way to use their personal audio file as part of their overall recovery plan. The clients who use this powerful technology tend to improve their self- esteem, stay in recovery and improve the quality of their life in general.
When a person feels and thinks more positively about themselves, they tend to be more positive everything in their life.
