Self Hypnosis For Phobias

Do you have a phobia? If you do try and imagine facing that phobia right now. It could be a spider, it may be a glove or it could be walking under a bridge. Whatever it is try and picture it right now and focus on how it makes you feel.

This little exercise goes to prove a few of things. Firstly if you now feel shaken and disturbed then you almost definitely have a phobia. Secondly it goes to show how powerful the mind is, just from thinking about your phobia it elicited a reaction similar to if your phobia was actually right there with you now. Most importantly though it also goes to show that your phobia can be eased and even cured through the use of self hypnosis.

Perhaps before we look into how self hypnosis can cure phobias we should define exactly what a phobia is and indeed what self hypnosis is. Self Hypnosis For Phobias

Essentially it is a mild mental illness, mild in the fact that it is unlikely that a phobia will cause you to harm yourself or others – although such cases have been documented. For example in England a year or so ago a young adult ran off a cliff to escape a loose dog. The word “phobia” itself comes from the Greek word phobos meaning morbid fear.

You might believe that there’s no reason for your phobia but there almost certainly will be. It could be that you share your phobia with a parent and it was passed onto you by seeing how your parent reacted to, lets say, a spider in total fear. Witnessing this sort of reaction early in life can shock your mind and trigger a defence mechanism, making you subconsciously believe that spiders are incredibly dangerous and therefore should be morbidly feared. Alternatively you may have encountered an aggressive dog when you were younger which has resulted in a phobia.

Self hypnosis is a self induced form of hypnosis and is a versatile method of changing your mindset. This make self hypnosis very helpful in overcoming phobias, quitting smoking, losing weight and aiding many more problems. Hypnosis” also comes from the Greek language, specifically the word hypnos meaning sleep. This name however is quite inaccurate as hypnosis is actually a heightened state of attention.
