Flying is Voluntary
When I am approached by clients with a fear of flying, initially I simply tell them, " that’s simple, don’t fly... Problem solved, what else can I do for you. Oh and, don't worry, except in the case of Con-Air, no one is ever forced on an airplane."
Of course they quickly respond back that there are strong reasons which compel them to fly despite the discomfort. Those reasons might include work, the desire to go on vacation or visit family in destinations not easily reached without air travel, etc.
Defeating F.E.A.R. (False Expectations Appearing Real)
Without knowing it, by self-assessing the benefit that comes from flying to be more important than the fear, the person has already begun the process of re-gaining control. Our little exchange has caused them to become aware of feelings that are keeping them from enjoying life, which includes flying comfortably. They realize they want to fly because flying would provides a person important benefits.
By simply seeking help for the issue which makes them feel out of control, they have made a baby-step in the direction of being able to fly comfortably. In essence they have said, “OK, I’ve been living with this F.E.A.R. (False Expectations Appearing Real) but I’m not taking it anymore, I want those benefits!”
How a Hypnotist Can Help
By consulting a Hypnotist for worries and concerns or dreads, such the fearful flying experience, you are selecting a professional who has spent much time studying how to help a person let go of such self-limiting beliefs. After using hypnosis, evaluating the risk involving flying correctly and appropriately becomes as easy as one would evaluate the risk of being driven in a car.
Without hypnosis the apprehensions remain even though the person would not have difficulty being driven in new stretch limousine by a highly trained professional driver. A much more risky activity statistically, I might add.
How Your Mind Learns and Holds on to Patterns - A Demonstration
To show in a practical way, how our subconscious mind locks onto patterns and habits, let me ask you to clasp your hands together. Notice the position of your thumbs. You may put your left thumb over the right or vice-versa. This would be an example of a habit which does not really matter as there is no right or wrong way. You probably learned that way of doing it as a baby and relate to the happy feeling of that experience. Switch your hands around and do it the other way and it "just feels wrong. " No amount of conscious effort on your part will change that “wrong feeling. ”
