10 Steps To Help You Beat Your Phobia
10 Steps To Beat Your Phobia...For Free!
You might be asking "Why are you giving away some of your most effective techniques in tackling phobias?"
Well, I love my job because I get to help people to feel better about themselves but I can only help 1 person at a time. By giving away these top tips I can help lots more people to feel better about themselves.
This information is not new, difficult or going to cost you a penny. It can be found fairly easily on the internet if you look in the right place but I think it is so basic that everyone should be told about it so they can benefit from it.
Around 1 in 10 people have some phobia or other but many people don't ever do anything about these often easily resolved thoughts. In just a few simple steps you could notice an improvement in your phobia. This process doesn't involve going into a trance, it is not dangerous in any way and cannot make your phobia worse in any way.
You know what your phobia is so just think back to a time when that phobia was triggered. If you can't remember a specific occasion just imagine a circumstance in which your phobia is triggered.
Imagine yourself in an empty cinema. You are sitting on the front row looking up at the screen where you can see a frozen black and white image of you just before you experience your phobia.
Now imagine yourself floating out of your body and float to the back row so you are looking at yourself watching yourself on the screen.
Now imagine you are floating out of your body on the back row and you are floating up into the projection booth. Imagine yourself looking out of the little window seeing yourself on the back row, looking at you on the front row, looking at you on the screen. Imagine that on the screen you are watching a short black and white film of you going through your phobia. Stop the film when your phobia is past and you are once again calm and in control.
When you get to the end of the film just imagine that you can step into image of you on the screen. Once you are in the film at the end imagine you can rewind the scene so everything runs backwards, including the sound but this time make the film colour and stop when you get back to the beginning.
Go back to the end of the film and run it backwards again, a little faster this time. You could also add silly music to the scene if you like. Again, go to the end of the film, run it backwards again, fast, add the silly music and this time add some fancy dress to some of the characters in the film. If you are afraid of spiders put a red clown's nose on the spider or mini Wellington boots on each of its 8 feet.
Repeat this process a few more times getting faster and faster each time. Now run the scene forwards and see how you feel. I wouldn't be at all surprised if you felt a lot less anxious or worried about your old phobia.
