I have waited to post again, because there were so many powerful comments being posting on the last post about self-esteem. Really some helpful stuff! It’s great to see the community working together for the common good.
If I had to summarize some consensus points, they would be that seeing a mental health professional can facilitate awareness, but we must all work on it ourselves as well.
As I mentioned, daily self-development time is crucial for me. It’s important that you counter-program against all of the negative messages you unknowingly receive from the media, organized religion, government, and those around you. (Many of you correctly identified the importance of limiting interaction with those that feed your negative tendencies.)
Bob Gallo reminded me about the subliminal CD’s from Steven Halpern I recommended in an earlier newsletter. He has one on self-esteem, and some other great topics. Play them when you go to bed at night, then you get the messages during alpha states, which is the best time to program your subconscious mind. You can get them from Inner Peace Music here: I have six or seven and love them.
