Overcoming Phobias and Fears
What’s the difference you may ask. Well there is a very big difference between the two. Fears can be overridden but phobias create total panic and the inability to cope.
Let’s look at a fear of flying. There is an opportunity for a dream holiday but the only way to get there is by plane. The dream holiday will win and you are able to override the fear.
Phobia of flying. No matter how much you want the holiday nothing can tempt you to board the plane. Even a picture of people boarding a plane will create panic. The dream holiday is lost to this person.
No one was ever born with a fear of flying. The only 2 fears anyone is born with are fear of loud noises and fear of falling.
Everything else is learned behaviour. In the instance of flying, maybe someone saw a plane crash on TV or read an article about a plane disaster. They could have been in the presence of someone displaying this fear.
Now the plane becomes an object of fear and this gets stored in the subconscious mind. It remains there with the very good intention of keeping you safe but of course that is not useful. It doesn’t keep you safe but rather prevents you from doing something you wish to do.
Spider phobia, same scenario. As a child you might have seen an adult freak out at the sight of a spider. So, your good old subconscious mind stores this information for future possible danger. Hey presto, you now have a spider phobia.
With that in mind would you agree that everything learned can be unlearned? Well the good news is that it can.
With neuro linguistic programming techniques and hypnosis that old phobia can be kicked into touch for all time.
The good news and bonus here is that it will only take one session and you will be free from that phobia whatever it was.
