Who enjoys the thought of injections? Only those with a slightly masochistic tendency actually find the experience enjoyable. The majority of people tolerate injections as a necessity, and don’t really dwell too much upon the process; it’s just one of those things.
But there are some people who are terrified by the very thought of a needle coming anywhere near to them. Copious tears are shed in the dentist’s waiting room, the blood clinic or the doctor’s surgery. More tears are shed at home at the very thought of needles. Needle phobia causes a lot of unwelcome and unnecessary anxiety and tension. Worse still, fear of needles causes real pain in that if you do not get treated for physical ailments, who knows what the ultimate outcome might be?
I have come across many a person who, through avoiding the dentists for years on end because of their needle phobia, has ended up suffering the effects of bad teeth and pain for a very long time. Eventually, the teeth are lost at an early age. The fear of pain, and the fear of needles, ultimately creates far more pain in the end.
There are of course many far more vital reasons for which one might require a needle to be inserted into a part of their anatomy. A fear of needles has to be overcome for ones emotional balance and physical health and well-being. The first place to go when embarking upon the quest for a phobia cure is to look for information so as to gain understanding. Where did the fear of needles come from? Why did you first become afraid of needles?
This is not a phobia which anyone is born with. This fear is learned through experience, and this experience may be actual or it may be vicarious. Once you understand that you have learned your fear, you come to the realization that whatever is learned can be unlearned. Most people just think that they “have a phobia” and that there is nothing that they can do about it. Once you open your mind to the possibility that you can change your response to needles you will find that there is in fact an easy and simple way in which to overcome your phobia.
Your thoughts trigger your emotions and hence your behavior. A phobic response is triggered instinctively by your subconscious mind. It is caused by the subconscious beliefs and expectations. Hypnosis allows you to access your subconscious mind and therefore provides a state of mind which allows you to alter thoughts and behaviors which would otherwise be “set in stone”.
With hypnosis you can alter instinctive reactions and learn to respond in a different way. Simply by listening to a hypnotherapy download you can overcome your fear of needles. Hypnosis provides a quick and easy and cost effective phobia cure. There’s no need for you to shed any more tears when faced with the prospect of needles.
