Instant Hypnosis Can Cure: Ranidaphobia or in layman’s terms Fear of Frogs
Instant Hypnosis: An Irrational Fear or Phobia Explained
Lisa finished lunch and ran out into the garden to join her grandfather. She loved exploring the garden. To a five year old it was huge and exciting. She sat on the edge of the wheelbarrow and watched her grandfather make hole after hole in the freshly turned earth and place two small seeds in each hole.
As her grandfather plodded along she caught sight of something in the grass near her foot. She knew what it was instantly even though she had never seen a real frog. It was fascinating, beautiful even. ‘Grandpa look a frog’. Acknowledging the discovery grandpa replied, ‘oh he’s nice isn’t he, there are loads in this garden. He looks a little dry though. If you fill the can you can give him a drink’.
Lisa picked up the watering can and headed for the potting shed. She put the can on the floor below the faucet and turned on the tap. As the can filled she took time to explore the shed. It was full of interesting old things she thought. The smell was a mix of oil, rotting compost, and paint.
Her grandfather completely distracted with the planting hadn’t noticed Lisa go into the potting shed and assumed she had returned to the house. When he heard the postman coming up the drive he shut and latched the potting shed door left the garden and went around to the front of the house.
Lisa froze, then tried the door. It wouldn’t budge, Lisa was trapped. The interesting smells now seemed threatening to a five year old. The odd shapes even the running water only added to the sense of doom.
Meanwhile Lisa’s grandfather checked the mail box and took a pile of letters inside. ‘Where’s Lisa’, asked Grandma. ‘With you I thought’, replied Grandpa. Without hesitating he headed out the back door directly towards the potting shed and opened the door. A frantic teary eyed Lisa bolted to the house. Thankfully Grandma managed to calm her down before putting her to bed for the afternoon. To Lisa’s five year old mind the days events had come as a shock. There was a lot of new information to sift through and file away.
As Lisa slept her subconscious continued to work through the days’ events. The subconscious mind is an interesting character. A guardian who looks out for you 24 hours a day even as you sleep sifting through every experience you have and filing it away in order to access it again in time of need. As she slept her subconscious made a bad call it filed away the experience of being confined in a dark potting shed for what seemed like an eternity to a child with the experience of seeing a real frog for the first time.
Two months later when a classmate produced a frog puppet for show and tell she shrieked and tried to run out of the classroom. Her subconscious added ridicule to the frog file.
As the years passed more and more negative experiences were incorrectly filed under frog. As she grew older she knew it was ridiculous to be terrified y something as apparently harmless as a frog. Despite knowing how irrational the fear was she could not consciously recall why she feared them, why she felt as if her life would end if she encountered one, why she couldn’t bring herself to watch something as innocuous as The Muppet Show for fear of confronting even a puppet frog.
Thirty years on Lisa found herself turning down a promotion in Florida. Not because she disliked sunshine or more money but because she knew that the Everglades weren’t just home to alligators and poisonous snakes but because there was a good chance she would encounter the thing that made her blood run cold, a frog. Lisa had no idea why she was afraid but her subconscious certainly did. Frogs equal being locked in a confined space…being ridiculed… A decade later when she realized that her four year old son had somehow learned to fear frogs she knew it was time to take action.
Lisa was suffering from ranidaphobia or in layman’s terms fear of frogs. Luckily Lisa’s neighbor knew somebody who could help. A lady she had visited herself in her struggle to quit smoking. When Lisa finally decided enough was enough she called the hypnotherapist.
Hypnotherapy is an remarkably effective means of correcting filing errors made by the subconscious. You can easily use a hypnosis mp3 download for this. The hypnotherapist using a number of techniques aimed at occupying or distracting the conscious awake mind and reasoning directly withe subconscious was able to redirect Lisa’s understanding of frogs. Although she never really learned to love fogs she certainly could cope with the odd chance encounter.
