5-minute Technique to resolve Phobia’s

 

 

Phobias are persistent, irrational fears of certain objects or situations that happen to so many people. Phobias can occur in several forms, it might keep people indoors, it might make people scream when they see a spider the number of people who suffer from different phobia more than 10% of the population suffer a phobia of some sort, of which there are more than 300, the most common being;

  • fear of heights (acrophobia)
  • fear of the outdoors or open spaces (agoraphobia)
  • fear of closed or confined spaces (claustrophobia)
  • fear of spiders (arachnophobia)
  • fear of dogs (cynophobia)
  • fear of cats (ailurophobia)
  • fear of birds (ornithophobia)
  • fear of wasps (spheksophobia)
  • fear of crowds (ochlophobia)
  • fear of flying (aerophobia)
  • fear of needles (belonophobia)
  • fear of snakes (ophidiophobia)

Symptoms of a phobia can differ for everyone. They can range from feeling unsteady, dizzy, lightheaded or faint feeling like you are choking, pounding heart, palpitations or accelerated heart rate,nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea, trembling or shaking.

Experiencing this type of acute fear is extremely unpleasant and can be very frightening. It may make you feel stressed out of control and overwhelmed. It may also lead to feelings of embarrassment, anxiety or depression.unnamed

As a result, many people with phobias avoid situations where they might have to face their fear. While this is an effective strategy to start with, avoiding your fears often causes them to become worse, and can start to have a significant impact on how you live your life.

Most of these phobias can be traced back to to the first time the person experienced the situation and found by whatever reason they were unable to cope, or simply put a negative imprint in the mind for life. Fortunately, most of these types of phobia’s can be helped in minutes. An amazing technique was discovered by Dr. Callahan a psychologist who found his work greatly enhanced with Kinesiology. Watch our video where Siobhan demonstrates this technique on Natasha who has a fear of spiders.

Not all fears are resolved completely the first time, the procedure is used but with patience, and within two or three sessions most problems are banished. Bear in mind we can only work by permission,ascertain that the subject truly does want to address the problem. Strangely enough, many people when confronted with the opportunity to deal with the fear, decide they cannot!

 

10 days to Thrive – No Complaining – Day THREE

 

 

Make a change

                                        Today’s a short one!  It’s simple.  Today is day three and we challenge you NOT to complain.

Life is not perfect. It never has been and never will be. This is not bad news. In fact, once we begin to embrace this reality, we welcome a great number of possibilities . Life is never perfect. We know this to be true.

Why then, do we continue to complain about its imperfections?

We complain about the weather, the traffic, our family. We complain about tight clothing, misplaced keys, late air planes, and the price of oil! We complain about our jobs or our lack of jobs. We complain about nosy neighbours, crying babies, ungrateful teenagers, and lazy family members. We have become a society too quick to complain.

Complaining is almost never a positive reaction to our circumstance                                                                                                                                                                        .

Complaining fosters a negative attitude, negatively impacts those around us, doesn’t change our circumstance,highly unattractive and often leaves us as victim mode. 

 

So lets try not complain about the usual things :

  • About the weather

  • About your neighbours

  • About your family

  • About your boss

  • About your weight

  • About your shopping list

  • About this challenge!

 

 

Nothing, nada, rien du tout, zilch!

Instead, turn your attention to what’s good about them.

“You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.” —Tom Wilson

A SIMPLER Lifestyle by losing the stress

Stress – we all have it, and most clients feel it’s inevitable.

Inevitable in a way which means I believe “there’s nothing I can do about it“…..

Which results in a feeling of helplessness…..

Which results in not feeling very empowered by the situation so I’m stuck with it…..

But it can help to take the view that there is always a choice.  [Albeit the alternative may not be what you want either]. But unless we start to at least be open to the possibility that there is another way of thinking, then we’ll remain focussed on the problem, and remain stressed.

There is always another way to look at a situation.

Let’s take sky diving.  NOT something I have ever wanted to do (well I tell I lie, I did briefly consider it when in New Zealand 20 years ago but I was young and foolish, but it got called off due to too much cloud cover, WHEW!), and it is my belief that I’m just too much of a wimp to do it.

My mother on the other hand, on her 70th birthday decided this WAS something she wanted to do! (Maybe you get MORE foolish as you grow older?)

Anyway, my point is, the situation is neutral.
One belief is that it’s too scary, you’d have to be mad to even consider it.
Another belief is that it would be an amazing experience and a great opportunity to raise money for charity.

The situation isn’t one or the other, it just is.  But an example of two (very) opposing beliefs, opinions, or choices – whatever you want to call it.

OK so sky diving might have you firmly in one court and no amount of “belief change” work is gonna convince you.  How about the situation you find yourself in today, tomorrow and for the foreseeable future?

How do you go about releasing a whole multitude of stresses, those worries that go around and around in your head, which you wished just didn’t anymore?

First of all to recognise that there IS another way to at least look at any situation.

A trick I learned is to first ask yourself; Is what I believe true?  For example, you just said to yourself “I can’t afford to buy organic food”.  Ask yourself, is that true? On the surface you can just believe your blanket statement.  But the next trick is to dig a little deeper and to list at least 3 ways that belief is incorrect, or that the opposite belief is true.  It’s hard for the brain to hold onto two opposing beliefs at the same time.

What our minds interpret as stress, causes the body to react to our interpretation.

Every felt embarrassed? What did your body do?  … Most likely you felt a completely involuntary reddening of your face, and evening a burning sensation that there was nothing you could do to stop!  In short you blushed.  You blushed as a reaction to a situation that you interpreted as embarrassing (to you).

The body is designed to respond but sometimes it gets stuck in a stress response permanently because we never switch off!

This simple technique in the video below will help your reaction to stresses. It’s a wonderfully simple way to feel instantly better, and help that stress response to relax a little.

Give this a go now, it really is simple and will take you 3 minutes (I know, I know, you’re time poor).  But these 3 minutes might help you sleep better, feel more relaxed and help you focus on new solutions.  Well worth it!

Let me know how you get on:

Old Injury – Kinesiology Improved His Flexibility

Old Injury – Kinesiology Improved His Flexibility

There is an amazing technique in Systematic Kinesiology called Injury Recall Technique (IRT)

This method was introduced to our field by Dr W. Schmitt. Simply put, the body “remembers” significant injuries (falls, surgeries, breaks etc.) and stores this information. Although the body may have healed the damage, the memory of it creates a pattern within the brain to “guard” it, as if it were present to some degree. With this simple technique the “guarding” can be eliminated, even years after the event  occurred. This restores limitations to range of motion, pain syndromes, and body function. Phenomenal things occur breaks, sprains and scars are addressed

Here’s a sneak peak of a demo from a Diploma Class.  The students are learning how to increase the body’s flexibility by removing old injuries with two techniques.

IRT (Injury Recall Technique) is a gentle procedure used following a recent or ancient injury or trauma.  IRT restores muscle balance to pre-injury status, often dramatically relieving pain and restoring range of motion.

To understand why IRT works, you must first understand what happens when the body encounters an injury or trauma.  Injury Recall is the second one, which helps to remove the memory of an old physical injury/trauma that a body has experienced – for example, broken bones, scars, injuries to muscles, mammograms, twisted ankles, injection sites and dental work!

In this video we first of all remove the emotion surrounding the traumatic memory. And then IRT applied. It made a huge difference to a TASK Ireland Diploma Student’s flexibility – and bear in mind it’s not just in the hip where we were working but all over the body.

A short 3 min video, well worth watching to understand the potential to improve health with Systematic Kinesiology.
