“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
This is a line from President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s inaugural speech given on March 4, 1933. Although the great man was not talking about phobias, there is a distinctive ring of truth in his words.
Fear is, by its very nature, irrational. No one expects to be eaten by a spider, or to be set upon in a dark alley by goblins and ghouls. But humans have this amazing thing called imagination, a double-edged sword that has the power to create entire universes out of thin air on the one hand, or to scare the living daylights out of them on the other. other side. When it’s the latter it can seriously affect your quality of life, making even the simplest tasks seem like insurmountable challenges.
How Fear Manifests Itself
Irrational fears are known as phobias, and can be specific – as in the fear of clowns or bridges – or more general – as in agoraphobia, the fear of both open and restricted spaces. Thanks to the strong imagination you have been blessed with, it is possible to develop a phobia about almost anything, and in most cases that phobia produces a series of reactions such as:
• Uncontrollable panic when exposed to the source of your fear
• Higher anxiety levels
• Physical reactions that may include sweating, increased heart rate, and breathing difficulties
• The inability to function normally due to increased anxiety and stress
• The urge to do whatever it takes to avoid meeting the object of your fear
• You feel powerless to overcome your fear
Often people are anxious just thinking about what causes their fear, which only serves to strengthen their emotional and physical reactions in the future. Fortunately, hypnosis is one of the fastest and most effective methods to treat phobias.
Get Help from Hypnosis
Hypnosis works by guiding you into a state of relaxation. It lets you shut out the outside world so you can bring your attention to a specific point of focus. This can be achieved by visiting a hypnotherapist or through reputable hypnosis recordings. In both cases you will be brought to a point where your mind is calm and you are open to suggestions.
Hypnosis takes advantage of the fact that our imagination is so vivid and limitless. It helps us work through scenarios in safety and security, away from the things we fear, by using the power of suggestion to change the way we think. By replacing old and outdated beliefs with new and positive ones, it is possible to eliminate fear and all those associated reactions from our lives for good.
Deep down you know that your fear is not real. It is a reaction that has been programmed into your mind, something you have learned from your parents, siblings, friends, or even through the media. The feelings have become ingrained in your subconscious, and the only way to get rid of them and the behaviors they trigger is by replacing them with others.
Hypnosis is painless, non-invasive, and has no unpleasant side effects. In most cases you will simply feel like you got some rest, returning to your normal wakeful state feeling refreshed and relaxed. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all treatments and therapies could achieve results that leave you feeling this good?
And that’s another thing worth remembering. No matter how skeptical you may feel about hypnosis, it brings results – and anything that improves the quality of your life must be worth a try.
