Lower your Fear to near Zero!

The fear of flying mostly an irrational fear. However, the foundation for it is very real because airplanes do crash and for many reasons, e.g. technical problems, pilot error and of course terrorism. However, there's no part to life that doesn't contain its risks, if you drive a car and were involved in an accident, chances are it wouldn't put you off driving; even if you were only a passenger! We are nowadays aware that terrorists are totally indiscriminate in when, where and why they strike and that is quite a frightening prospect. However, it is because of that there is far more effort taken to reduce the threat to aviation from terrorism than to prevent the local idiot driver or radicalized lone wolf causing havoc! Logically speaking we should feel safer flying than any other form of transport but that is logic and fear is based on emotion and therein lays the rub

The fear of flying is very illogical and because of that, not as straight forward as it might seem to be. It can be caused by many different underlying problems.

Fear of Flying (Aviaphobia) can be a result of:

  • Fear of death (thanotophobia)
  • Fear of confined spaces (claustrophobia)
  • Fear of being locked in an enclosed space (cleithrophobia)
  • Fear of open spaces (agoraphobia)
  • Fear of clouds (nephophobia)
  • Fear of accidents (dystychiphobia
  • Perhaps as a result of being in any kind of an accident
  • Knowing someone who has been in a plane accident
  • Flying after a recent plane crash

However, the fear of flying is a learned fear and what we can learn; we can unlearn.

Hypnosis is very often successful because of its ability to access the subconscious mind and uncover the underlying cause of this life limiting problem. Of course it is not possible to say nothing couldn't happen during a flight, but it is the safest form of travel and therefore the probability of something happening is extremely unlikely. We successfully use probability almost every day of our life when we make any future based statements, such as:

  • I'll see you later
  • Call you tomorrow
  • I’m going away this week end
  • I’ll be on holiday next month
  • See you when I get back

 Of course, we do not know this to be true but based on previous experience we assume it is.

Statistically cars and motorbikes are far more dangerous yet most people would not give up driving if they were involved in a car or motorbike accident. So, from this we can reasonably assume the fear of flying to be out of context with the risk or at the very least, an irrational fear and rarely based on personal experience.

Put in context, flying is one of the most safe and wonderful things that has happened to the human race. It has enabled us to visit places previously not possible (at least within the context of a 2 or 3 week vacation). It is by far the cheapest form of travel (cent's per mile). It enables us to see our beautiful planet from an aspect not possible by any other means. It has expanded the travel industry and employs millions of people worldwide. It has brought wealth and prosperity to countries and nations all over the globe. Yet, it brings down upon they who fear it the most uncontrollable fear and abject terror.

Hypnotherapy is a natural and safe method of effecting lasting change in a person’s life and it brings about one of the most rewarding benefits of being human.
