How to build self-esteem & confidence through spiritual awakening

Self-esteem and confidence are essential for a happy and fulfilling life. When we feel good about ourselves, we're more likely to pursue our goals, take risks, and enjoy positive relationships with others. However, building self-esteem and confidence is easier said than done. Negative self-talk, past traumas, and societal pressures can all contribute to low self-esteem and confidence. 


In my personal journey when I was younger, I experienced intense emotional pain and a profound sense of depression as a result of negative self-talk. This had a significant impact on my happiness and self-esteem. However, I was committed to feeling better and began my journey towards healing. Now, as an EFT practitioner and healing coach, I have had the privilege of helping and working with many clients who face similar challenges to those I once struggled with myself.

In this article, we'll explore how spiritual awakening can start to shift our beliefs and build greater self-esteem and confidence. We'll also discuss how mindfulness, positive affirmations, subconscious reprogramming, and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) can support us on this journey.

The mind-body connection

One of the key factors in building self-esteem and confidence is recognising the relationship between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Our thoughts can have a powerful impact on how we feel about ourselves and how we behave in the world.

If we constantly tell ourselves that we're not good enough or that we'll never succeed, we're more likely to feel anxious, depressed, and lacking in confidence. On the other hand, if we cultivate positive and empowering beliefs, we're more likely to feel confident, happy, and fulfilled.

The first step to start cultivating positive beliefs is through mindfulness.


Mindfulness involves becoming more aware of our thoughts, emotions, and sensations in the present moment, without judgment. By bringing our attention to the present moment, we can also start to cultivate greater self-acceptance and compassion. Rather than getting caught up in self-criticism and judgment, we can learn to observe our thoughts and feelings with curiosity and kindness.

This can be especially helpful for those struggling with anxiety or depression, as it can help us focus on the here and now.
By practising mindfulness regularly, we can start to recognise the negative patterns and reframe our thoughts in a more positive and empowering way.

The importance of positive affirmations and subconscious reprogramming

Positive affirmations are a powerful tool for building self-esteem and confidence. Affirmations are short, positive statements that we repeat to ourselves regularly to reinforce positive beliefs. For example, "I am worthy of love and respect," or "I am capable of achieving my goals."

By repeating these statements regularly, we can start to shift our beliefs and reprogram our subconscious minds. Our subconscious minds are deeply ingrained and are often responsible for our automatic thoughts and behaviours. By reprogramming our subconscious minds with positive beliefs, we can start to change our automatic responses and build greater self-esteem and confidence.

While positive affirmations can be helpful, they're not always effective if we don't truly believe them on a subconscious level. 

That's where EFT comes in. EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique, aims to uncover and release any limiting beliefs that may be holding us back, even if we're not consciously aware of them.

How EFT can help release blockages 

Sometimes, we may be aware of negative beliefs about ourselves, but we can't seem to shake them. This may be due to blockages in our energy system, which can prevent us from reaching our full potential
EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique, is a powerful tool for releasing blockages to their full potential. EFT is a form of energy psychology that involves tapping on specific points on the body while focusing on negative emotions or beliefs. By tapping on these points, we can stimulate the body's energy meridians and allow our energy to flow freely. 

EFT can be particularly effective for releasing negative beliefs about ourselves, such as "I'm not good enough" or "I'm a failure." By releasing these negative beliefs, we can start to see ourselves in a more positive light and build greater self-esteem and confidence.

EFT can also be helpful for identifying and releasing core wounds that may be contributing to negative beliefs and low self-esteem. 

Accessing core wounds

Negative beliefs about ourselves often stem from core wounds that we experienced in childhood or other significant life events. These wounds can create deep-seated beliefs that we are not good enough, unworthy, or unlovable. 

These wounds can be triggered by present-day experiences, leading to negative self-talk and low self-esteem. However, by recognising and healing these wounds, we can start to shift our beliefs and cultivate greater self-esteem and confidence.

One way to access core wounds is through a healing journey with a therapist or coach.

By exploring our past experiences and the emotions associated with them, we can identify patterns and themes that may be impacting our present-day beliefs and behaviours.

Once we've identified these patterns, we can start to work on releasing them through EFT, positive affirmations, or other healing techniques. It's important to approach this work with self-compassion and a willingness to explore and heal. This can be a challenging and emotional process, but it can also be incredibly empowering and transformative.

The power of spiritual awakening

Spiritual awakening is a journey of self-discovery and connection to our true nature. It involves recognising that we are much more than just our physical bodies - we are unlimited beings of energy, connected to all that is. Through spiritual awakening, we can start to tap into the love and light within us, and recognise that we are all one.

When we realise that we are connected to all beings and that we are all part of a greater whole, we can start to let go of comparisons and judgments.

Comparing ourselves to others is a common way to erode self-esteem and confidence. It's easy to fall into the trap of thinking that we are not good enough because we don't measure up to others' achievements or successes.

However, it's important to remember that we are all on our own unique journeys. We all have different strengths, weaknesses, and experiences, and that's what makes us special and valuable. It's important to remember that comparing oneself to others only leads to unnecessary stress and self-doubt.

Spiritual awakening can help us realise that we are all connected and each have our own purpose and value in this world. By recognising our interconnectedness, we can start to see the value in ourselves and others. We can appreciate the unique gifts that each person brings to the world.

By tapping into this deeper truth, we can start to let go of limiting beliefs and see ourselves and others through a lens of love and compassion.

Spiritual awakening can also help us develop a greater sense of purpose and meaning in our lives. By connecting to our truth and the Universe, we can start to align our actions and goals with a higher purpose. This can be incredibly empowering as we pursue our passions and make a positive impact in the world.


Building self-esteem and confidence is a journey that requires self-awareness, self-acceptance and a commitment to growth and healing. Through mindfulness, positive affirmations, subconscious reprogramming, EFT, and spiritual awakening, we can start to shift our beliefs and cultivate greater self-esteem and confidence.

It's important to approach this work with self-compassion and a willingness to explore and heal. We all have unique challenges and wounds that we carry, but we also have the power to heal and transform. 

As we recognise our interconnectedness with all beings, we can develop a deep-seated self-confidence that emanates from our spiritual essence. It is unapologetic and springs from a deep knowing of our true nature as spiritual beings.
