A phobia is an intense and persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, or people. People with phobias want to avoid the feared subject at any cost. People with phobias can feel helpless to change their situation and can feel they are at the effect of an irrational fear that can and sometimes does control their life. Phobias can be so severe that they interfere with daily life impacting an individuals relationships, job and home life.
Where do Phobias Come From
Phobias can be seen as an anxiety issue. It seems that certain objects like snakes, snails, spiders have a predisposition to generate fear while other times objects like flowers, pots and feet don’t seem as emotionally loaded but can still impact some. Many point to a traumatic experience in childhood that linked an object to overwhelming fear, a sense of helpless, sadness, shame, etc. When a person experiences the trigger the anxiety response is initiated. The amygdale in the brain releases hormones into the body that puts the body into an “alert” state. They are ready to move, run, fight, etc. This defensive “alert” state is referred to in psychology as the fight or flight response
When someone comes to me with a phobia I look at their energy field. Often I notice an imbalance of one kind or another and attempt to clear it. Karma, energy blocks, psychic hooks, etc can all need to be cleared.
Many times a phobia can be resolved by going back to the event that triggered the fear(this life or another) and resolving and clearing it. Many times the feared subject need to be cleared in several lives. This clients son, below, is a case of a phobia being cleared by resolving past life issues.
“My son was constantly picking his nose. He could not stop. I brought him to the doctor, the acupunctorist and my yoga teacher. Nothing helped. He was afraid something may be in his nose that would cause him to choke and suffocate. He was constantly making sure the passages were clear. Around the family it was one thing, but he was starting school and I did not want him to be known as the “nose picker”. We had several sessions with Colby and then it happened. Colby asked my son if he wanted to pick his nose again. My son looked at him and he thought for a moment and said, “I don’t think so.” It has been months since our sessions with Colby and my boy has not picked. I am thrilled.
