Hypnosis can help you neutralise fear of violence when it goes beyond the normal bounds of self preservation because this fear, like all fears and phobias, is maintained solely through the mind and an irrational and unfounded belief system. While the mind is undoubtedly very powerful and can "convince" you that something or other is real and true when it is not, it's also undoubtedly true that the mind itself is very adaptable and open to change - if, that is, you really do want to change your thinking and get rid of damaging and unnecessary fears.
While currently you might feel as if you're afraid of your own shadow and have an expectation of violence being just around every corner, don't allow yourself to believe that you can never change and get rid of that fear because you most definitely can. It's all in the mind, as they say, and hypnosis is an ideal and uniquely effective method of changing for the better your most deeply ingrained thought processes and beliefs, if indeed those thought processes and beliefs are damaging you and your quality of life.
Excessive fears and expectations about violence can be the result of - or perhaps more accurately a sort of offshoot of - a form of generalised anxiety about life in general. Or it may simply have developed and grown in the psyche over time as a result of witnessing, or being subjected to, violence as a child.
There's also no doubt that elevated and exaggerated fears about violence are stoked by the media. The view is that violence and terror, like sex, sells and draws in eyeballs. "Maniac Slaughters 5 In Homicidal Bloodbath!" is unfortunately more eye-catching than "Some Guy Somewhere Has A Nice Day."
When you've been watching news reports about violence and atrocities since about 7 or 8 years old, and if you're perhaps prone to anxiety and nervousness, then by the time you've reached early adulthood you could have developed irrationally excessive fears about aggression and violence. This particular phobia is by no means widespread but does affect some people and can be a real hindrance and stumbling block in life.
Of course some trepidation about possible violence is an integral part of your inbuilt survival mechanism. You need to be aware of the possibilities regarding danger and violence but not in such a way that it influences all your thoughts and actions. The trick is to find the right balance, to be able to recognise the possibility of violence where and when it actually exists - which in most people's lives, regardless of the impression that you get from the media is not very often - but without letting the fear of those possibilities take over your life. You need to preserve yourself from the damaging effects of unnecessary fear as much as you need to protect yourself from the actual but unlikely possibility that you will be attacked.
Striking the right psychological and emotional balance between necessary self protection and freedom from unnecessary fear of violence is something that can be achieved with hypnosis. Following are details of and information about an audio hypnosis download created by qualified and certificated hypnotherapists and clinical psychologists which is designed specifically to deal with and overcome this phobia.
