Fear is a natural response to a negative perception of a stimulus. And while fear is sometimes useful, it often gets in the way of leading a fun, productive life. A fearful perception of a thing or event is not true or false, or good or bad, it’s just how one learned, unconsciously, to perceive the event.
Some of the common fears we experience in our daily lives are phobias and anxieties. Both have the same quality of letting us become wary and fearful of the possible outcomes that may happen at a certain point in our lives.
Anxiety plagues almost everyone in one form or another, and is the direct result of worrying about various aspects of life, such as relationships, career, or health. Having an anxiety-producing style of thinking about these topics creates a cycle that puts added stress on your mind with each loop.
Phobia, on the other hand, is the excessive and irrational fear reaction that we have. It can be caused by either natural environments, past experiences, or genetics. The influence of a phobia can be categorized from being bothersome to severely incapacitating an individual. People who have phobias often understand that their fear is irrational, but they can’t do anything about it. These fears can interfere with work, school, and personal relationships.
Hypnosis has the ability to reprogram such perceptions so that your brain perceives the event in the way that most people do; as a harmless aspect of life that can be handled easily. Whether your fear is related to traveling, social situations, insects, or anything else, hypnosis can help you perceive that stimulus in a neutral, non-emotional, non-threatening way.
