The Difference Between a Fear and a Phobia

Everything in life is learned through experiences of the past that project into the present. Fears are similar to this as fears are learned from experiences in the past that create feelings of fear in the present.

We are only born with 2 fears one of falling the other of loud noises. So as we go forward in life we start to take on experiences some good and some bad, which can be re-triggered by similar experiences in our present situations. For example you might be at a fireworks display and one firework made you jump by its sudden loud noise, now you are scared of the others because of how it made you feel. This could lead into a phobia whereby you don’t want to go to the fireworks display because you are scared of feeling scared.

So a phobia is a fear of a fear. Now there are many different names of phobias and fears and i will list a few below some are linked to everyday life some to business, work and money take a look and see if any fit in with your experiences.

  • Fear of flying
  • Fear of spiders
  • Fear of loud noises
  • Fear of the dark
  • Fear of being alone
  • Fear of nightmares
  • Fear of elevators
  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of Heights

How can an intuitive help ones journey…

Sometimes we get stuck in life’s stresses and can’t find a way out. We need external guidance to help push oneself down the right road. Intuitive’s or psychics collect information energetically about the persons past, present and future and can create a story that will upon the gate to their true path.

It is important to understand that a reading is like a counselling session where the intuitive will read cards or without cards and help create an understanding about the situations that block them, maybe it was a past event maybe even a past life we can determine what it is and release it.

Most intuitive life coaches will use Reiki or other forms of healing to remove blocks remotely as the reading occurs and you may find yourself releasing all that is needed when you leave a session. Certain block that take slightly longer to deal with can be done another time using hypnotherapy or energy healing methods.

Alex uses bother counselling and life coaching with the aid of cards and energy heal to unblock a person’s path. This can be in sports, business and general life and can be done with adult or children.

Zap your intolerances, allergies and habits part 2

It’s been a long time sinse I wrote my last post and I can finally reveal how to do this.

Now, all you need to be able to do it visualize yourself experiencing the problem, pain or experience that involves your allergy, intolerance or habit. Now once you have it in your minds eye I want you to notice a feeling somewhere in the body.

This feeling is the solution. When we are nervous we usually feel it in our stomach, same with fears. All I want you to do is imagine a colour associated with the feeling. Now pretend to reach in a pull out that colour and hold it in your hands.

You may notice it has changed colour or shape. It will be spinning a certain direction. I want you to physically turn it the other way and rotate it as fast as you can. When you believe its ready put it back into the body and allow the problem to release.

We call this technique neuro-somatic patterning.


Zap your allergies, intolerance’s and habits part 1

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to easily zap away any problem you have? Nearly all allergies and intolerance’s are neurologically connected.
Using methods from Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Hypnosis and Holographic memory resolution we can put all the dots together and simply and easily eradicate these issues.

NLP taught us that we can see, listen and feel our own thoughts and experiences by reliving them in our own minds.

Most issues with allergies and intolerance’s happened at a young age where we experienced a reaction that our unconscious mind did not like. Sometimes this is bad reaction to food. Remembering our tummies are more sensitive at a young age and wheat, gluten and lactose can be tough to digest.

The unconscious mind stores experiences in the body as feelings and these collect, build up and compound together which sends us messages to stay away. All you simply did was learn from the experience.

If your body can learn something that quickly it can unlearn it at the same speed.

Look out for part 2 next week where I teach you a technique to do this.

Hypnosis for children

Hypnosis for kids works extremely well, in fact children make excellent hypnotic subjects.  Their ability to play pretend and engage in visual constructs and use their creative imagination allows for great success. Children naturally experience this kind of trance many times a day quite, by pretending, being absorbed and focused on imaginative play. Children from ages 5 -16 have minds open to easily making positive change.

Typical Children’s Issues That I Have Successfully Treated With Hypnosis

  • Anxiety
  • Exam Stress
  • Confidence & self-esteem
  • Phobias of spiders and heights
  • Bedwetting
