Where do phobias come from?

All phobias arise as a result of an emotional shock.

Often the cause is not conscious, but unconscious.

Example: Paul almost drowned in a swimming pool when he was 2 years old. Since then, he is afraid of the depths. He has no memory of the triggering event.

The usual explanation is that the unconscious mind is setting up a phobia to protect us.

In reality the unconscious, or rather the heart, knows exactly what is dangerous or not.

The phobia is more of a message: “You are afraid, because there are fears or anxieties in you that need to be released. As long as you do not look inside yourself, you will continue to be afraid.”

In other words, phobias are invitations to look within, and to free oneself from traumas.

How to get over a phobia?

Two ingredients are necessary:

Example: Lisa is afraid to take the lift. She releases several blocked fears and anxieties. After a few weeks of integration, she is riding lifts with a smile.

Sometimes the emotion is too intense to be released by oneself, and requires the external help of a therapist.
