My Declaration of Self-esteem by Virginia Satir develops natural and healthy self-esteem. The power of this exercise originates from the repeatedly self-suggestions that strengthen “me”. To have better results, this declaration is desirable to hear or read at least two times a day for next month. Maybe you find it helpful that there are video-file in Youtube and the image, which you can download to wall-paper or print it to your work-desk. The more you face this declaration during one month, the faster and more powerful it influences your unconscious.


My Declaration of Self-esteem (by Virginia Satir)

In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me –

everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone choose it –

I own everything about me – my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or to myself – I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears – I own all my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me - by so doing I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts –

I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know – but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and for ways to find out more about me –

However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me –

If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought and felt turned out to be unfitting, I can discard that which I feel is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded –

I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do.

I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me –

I own me, and therefore I can engineer me –

I am me &
