Self-Esteem – Spiritual Psychology 101

psychology 101

“As we study people, we see that they sometimes have unhealthy disturbances in their spiritual lives as a result of accepting unhealthy labels from their past. They need to own the past in certain ways so that they do not continue to carry it with them or allow the dialogue to continuously force them to act in unhealthy ways at the present time.” HH Bhakti Tirtha Swami, Spiritual Warrior V.

In order to fully absorb ourselves in spiritual life, we need to ensure we are a clear medium through which the transcendental words of the Srimad Bhagavatam and the Holy Name of Krsna can enter into. If we within our minds and hearts are holding on to many negative impressions from the past, these valuable spiritual vibrations will not be able to infuse our consciousness. This creates further problems and stagnation. However, by changing our negative internal dialogue, increasing our self-esteem and understanding what real humility is, we can flourish in our spiritual life and maintain a healthy mind.

This interactive workshop will look specifically at:

  • The difference between self esteem and real spiritual humility
  • How low self-esteem blocks one’s spiritual life and causes problems
  • Practical steps on how to increase one’s self-esteem and ways to unblock the past
  • How having high self-esteem and real humility makes a happy spiritual life.
