A phobia is a fear that is out of control.
During our everyday lives we would hope that our subconscious mind would send subliminal messages to our body to help us respond quickly to any situation that we may find ourselves in. By keeping us a little ‘fearful’ it keeps us safe.
Have you heard of ‘flight and fight’? This is when we are faced with a unique or maybe life threatening situation and our sub conscious mind makes an immediate decision and then sends ‘chemicals and signals’ to our body to respond in a way that we subconsciously believe to be correct and appropriate – to run away or to stay and battle it out.
However, imagine if the fear (the fear that thinks it’s keeping us safe) then starts to work overtime. It will ultimately work against us as its’s not just there in the background to keep us safe, it’s now in the foreground and seemingly dominating our everyday thinking – which ultimately makes us feel unsafe.
On a scale of 100, a fear should always been there, behind the scenes, just there in case. It’s needed to protect us and should maybe have a prescence in single figures up to 10% – almost like a default mechanism.
However, if through a series of childhood experiences, circumstances or practised or learned behaviour, the fear begins to take on a greater role (as a phobia) then the score could range from 11 to even 99 or 100 depending on the severity of the experience and then it really does become a phobia.
Simon uses MindMeasuring™ to re-calibrate the phobia and takes it back to it’s ideal default setting of ‘single figures’. This is where it needs to be – so it can once again be relied upon – if and when it’s required.
