Self Hypnosis for Self Esteem

When I was in my early thirties, I learned about hypnosis and more importantly self-hypnosis as that can be done in your own voice recorded onto a tape recorder. I use a small Olympus recorder and you can usually find one on Ebay for about $30. or any other small recorder.

First, you have to know exactly what you want to program for. Here we will focus on Self Esteem. Write down exactly what you want in the affirmative. In other words you already have it. It is an accomplished fact for you so that you already love yourself.


I, Rebeca love myself more and more every day.

I feel the energy of the cosmos is supporting me.

I am self honest and take responsibility for my happiness.

I know that there are no accidents and all happenings are for my growth, my wholeness.

I am happy when I am with myself (instead of by myself).

I treat myself in a loving way and daily choose what is healthy physically, spiritually and emotionally.

I am mastering my life with equanimity.

I am in gratitude for all that I have.

I am attracting loving, reciprocal relationships and we meet each other half way.

I am dynamic and making a difference in those who come into my life.

I am communicating honestly and effectively in all my interactions.

I am drawing to myself partners, friends and family who support my efforts at self love.

I am opening my heart more and more with every day.

I feel with my heart and with my mind. Both are guiding my choices.

I am compassionate with others and with myself.

I am in balance with giving and receiving.

I look forward to every day.

I am in the right place at the right time for my highest good. What I seek is seeking me.

I feel my connection to the divine in all that I do.

There are many great affirmations in Shakti Gawain's book, Creative Visualization so I highly recommend getting a copy of it and adding it as part of your spiritual practice. It was instrumental in my learning to grow my own self esteem. (More about that below).


Then you have to relax your body with a count down so speak this into a tape recorder:

Take 5 very deep breaths inhale and exhale.

I am now relaxing my toes. My toes are relaxing.

I am now relaxing my feet. They are relaxing more and more.

I now feel my ankles and my calves. They are relaxing.

My thighs and legs are completely relaxed.

I move now to my fingers. I feel they are relaxing.

I am now feeling my hands completely relaxed. My arms are relaxing.

Now I move to my lower abdomen and my buttocks. They are relaxing.

I now feel my heart, my chest and my shoulders completely relaxed.

I am now feeling my lower back and my spine. My lower back and my spine are relaxing.

I now feel my neck and my cheeks and face. They are relaxing. I feel completely relaxed.

My scalp and every part of my head is relaxed. Every muscle. Every part of me, my entire body is in a state of deep relaxation.

I am breathing in and out and the entire Universe is surrounding me with the light of love inside and outside of me enveloping me in it's kindness. I am going to now take myself even further down with the count of 7. Down. Down. Down. 6. Deeper. Deeper. Deeper. 5. Down. Down. Down. 4. Deeper. Deeper. Deeper. 3. Down. Down. Down. 2. Deep
