How Hypnosis Can Give You Freedom from Fear
(For Best Results Please Use Headphones)
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 human beings have this amazing thing called imagination, a two-edged sword that has the power to create whole universes out of thin air on the one hand or to frighten the living daylights out of them on the other. 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 they can be specific – as in the fear of clowns or of bridges – or more general – as in agoraphobia, the fear of both open and confined spaces.
Thanks to powerful images you’ve been blessed with, it’s possible to develop a phobia about almost anything, and in most cases, that phobia will produce a series of reactions such as:
- Uncontrollable panic when exposed to the source of your fear
- Heightened anxiety levels
- Physical reactions that might 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 encountering the object of your fear
- Feeling powerless to defeat your fear
Often people get anxious just thinking about what causes their fear, which only serves to strengthen their emotional and physical responses in the future. Fortunately, hypnosis is one of the quickest and most effective methods for dealing with phobias.
And here's another thing that’s worth remembering.
No matter how skeptical you might feel about hypnosis, it gets results – and anything that improves your quality of life has got to be worth a try.
