How EFT Tapping May Help Low Self-Esteem

January 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 75

Low self-esteem can negatively affect the direction your life and therefore the flow on effects can be enormous. On the other hand high self-esteem is all about feeling comfortable with yourself; after all it is an inside job! People with low self-esteem tend to stay in boring jobs because they can't see themselves being good enough to get a better job. They tend to stay in abusive relationships because they don't believe they deserve anything better. These people feel incredibly frustrated and trapped, unable to change their situation they feel helpless.

Take a look at how you see yourself. Does the person that you see have some wonderful qualities or do you see only the not so wonderful qualities? After all we all have both sides of the coin if we were honest with ourselves. How do you talk to yourself? Do you compliment yourself or are you always criticizing yourself? Are you a pessimist or an optimist?

Once you have figured this out your next task is to look at where these beliefs came from. Did they come from what others said to you and from experiences you had? Make a list of these. For instance a person could be walking around with the limiting belief "I'm not good enough". This belief could have formed from when they were a little boy and the father could have regularly ridiculed him in front of others and told him he was a "good for nothing"!

If you are unsure what the beliefs are that are contributing to your low-self esteem, try saying out loud "I have low self-esteem because..." or "I'm not good enough because..." and see what revelations you might have.

Really try to become aware of your "self talk" and when you catch yourself berating yourself, choose to change it for something more positive. Also practice daily relaxation and visualization seeing yourself as you'd really like to be.

Using EFT Tapping on limiting beliefs can be extremely powerful. I'd encourage you to use it on all of your limiting beliefs about yourself. Most importantly tap on all your specific events that have contributed to your low self-esteem. Give yourself time to work through this process and be gentle on yourself. You may find some of the events that need working on are simply too painful or unsafe to work through on your own. This is where using the services of a qualified EFT practitioner is useful.

When tapping on yourself be aware that tapping on "my low self-esteem" would not be specific enough. Rather tap on specific events that have led you to hold negative beliefs about yourself. Over a period of time you should find your low self-esteem improves!
