Meditation for Low Self Esteem

Curve Curve

Meditation can bring increased mental clarity and a fresh perspective on negative self-talk - allowing us to see it for what it really is and break out of the familiar cycles of low morale. For many, realising the degree to which they can master their own mind is a significant and growing source of self-confidence and assurance.

  • The problem

    According to leading psychologist Abraham Maslow, psychological health is not possible unless the essential core of the person is fundamentally accepted, loved and respected by by him or herself.

    Self-esteem gives you the confidence to face life optimistically and enables you to reach for and achieve your goals. Developing self-esteem greatly increases our chance of living a happy fulfilled life.

    The problem is that feeling bad about yourself is very, very common.

  • How it affects you

    Our life experiences shape the favourable or unfavourable attitudes and feelings we have towards ourselves. In our early years, our parents and older siblings have the greatest impact on our sense of self-esteem. Later, our ability to perform well academically also feeds into this.

    All of these impressions linger within the nervous system. If the majority of our experiences have been negative we will tend to be critical of ourselves and hypersensitive to criticism from others. We will be defensive and indecisive. We will be perfectionists, eager to please and likely to dwell on past mistakes.

    This ingrained patterning then filters all of our perceptions of ourselves. Chronic self-esteem issues limit our capacity for happiness  – even if we have managed to hide them well by developing a facade of false confidence that masks our inner dissatisfaction.

    Low self-esteem can also lead us to behave in damaging ways; whether that’s drinking, smoking, an eating disorder or self-harm. 

  • How can Beeja help?

    Beeja meditation balances the nervous system, by allowing it to rest at such a deep level that it breaks the regressive patterning that has held us back for so long. 

    As time passes, we clear away more and more of the negative impressions that have accumulated in our lives. We tune in to our inner resources.

    We feel far more certain about who we really are and begin to act from this place of truth. Confidence and self-esteem no longer depend on the approval of the outside world, but are a natural byproduct of feeling at ease and in touch with our true self.

    We are able to confidently make decisions and follow the intuition that is growing stronger within us.

    We feel more courageous and more spontaneous, with a sense of freedom and liberation in letting our inner being shine.

    We are less likely to find ourselves in situations that make us uncomfortable.  We become more graceful and more dexterous in our interactions with others. If in the past we have found ourselves to be lacking assertiveness, then soon we find ourselves looking people in the eye and asserting our preference politely and with grace.

    We radiate a new sense of calm and serenity and, when those around us notice it, we feel great.

    It is a happy by-product of meditation that we think more and more clearly, perform better and have more energy. It becomes the norm to perform at our best wherever we are; home, work or play.

    Juanita, Consultant, Seville

    “I was very low on confidence and there has been a saddening lack of joy in my life for too long. I didn't really understand how Beeja meditation could help with these things when other techniques and therapies have failed, but I didn't really know what else to try. This has given me a new lease of life and I find myself going to bed with a smile on my face and then waking up feeling inspired by life again and I literally can't wait for the day ahead. My friend did it with me and she is glowing in a way I haven't seen for a long, long time!”
