As I lay in bed last night I became aware of something moving across the ceiling. This spider (only mid-sized, so please don’t freak out at the idea!) was following a line along the outer edge of the ceiling and then came to rest for several moments directly above my head. I watched as he (or she) paused and then scurried off across the ceiling. I found myself becoming fascinated by where he was going (ok, I admit I didn’t want him to lose his grip and fall on me in the night!) and I also wondered what thoughts were running through his mind.
There are several recessed lights on the ceiling and he suddenly seemed to notice one of them, paused again and then took a few slow steps towards it and rested alongside the rim. I decided that he had assessed his surroundings and decided that the rim of the light provided good camouflage as he rested. Soon he was off again, veering like a drunkard across the ceiling, running this way and then that, as if he was being chased by…ahem…a human antagonist. He made it to another of those recessed lights and again rested before scurrying off once more at great speed. I was very aware that his movements were indicative of fear.
It is interesting that a spider will run across the floor as fast as he possibly can because he is afraid of the dangers looming in the form of a human being who is afraid of the spider…and often that human being will say that it is the speed at which a spider moves which creates the greatest fear. It’s a bit of a chicken and egg scenario, and very unfortunate for the spider.
At this point I switched off the light but couldn’t help thinking about the spider and what his world must be like. And that led me to thinking about the fact that if you are afraid of spiders, no amount of telling yourself that “he’s small, he’s more afraid of you than you of him” is sufficient to remove that fear. The fear does not spring from logical thought and so the application of logic will not shift that fear. Fear is fear. Fear is raw emotion. It is a feeling, one which is intense, and it springs automatically from the subconscious mind.
Thus to overcome a fear of spiders, one must look to what creates that raw emotion; one must deal with the subconscious patterns of thought from which that emotion flows so easily and dramatically. How do you get into your subconscious mind? The answer is hypnosis.
Hypnosis is a state of relaxation, and you pass through hypnosis every night as you drift off to sleep. Whilst in hypnosis you have access to your subconscious mind, and so old thought patterns and processes can be adjusted. Deep rooted fears can be examined and re-worked with the assistance of hypnosis downloads. Hypnosis provides an environment which is ideal for retraining your mind in the resolution of internal conflicts, or in overcoming fears and phobias. Simply by listening to a hypnosis download you can overcome your fear of spiders quickly and easily, in the comfort of your own home.
When I described before the spider on the ceiling, did you see him, did you picture him? I would lay a rather large bet that you did do exactly that. I also suspect that you really did visualize him falling and the sensation of his legs upon your skin…you probably created a mini-horror movie right there and then. This is reflective of how visual your mind is and of how powerful visualization can be. Simply by imagining something you can really feel it. This natural mental ability can be used and adapted to work just as powerfully for you in a positive way; you can learn to visualize yourself as you want to be, calm and relaxed around spiders. And whatever you imagine you create. Hypnosis, whilst accessing your subconscious mind, also stimulates your creativity and so your powers of visualization become enhanced. Hypnosis downloads will guide you to rewind those old horror movies and play comfortable and fearless new movies instead.
