Do you have a deep seated fear of frogs? You may feel as though you are so alone. It all began with Kermit. That was all she wrote, first the pig and then the world was in love with frogs. Everyone, that is, but you. Don't worry, you aren't as alone as you may feel in your fear of frogs. Perhaps if they all hung out with a pig, a bear, and a Gonzo (whatever it is that he's supposed to be) singing about Rainbow Connections none of them would be all that intimidating.
Frogs in the Real World
In the real world, frogs aren't cuddly, they don't have a nice tenor voice, and they are really rather slimy. In other words, they don't really invite kisses from fairy princesses. The fear of frogs is nothing new. Perhaps the Frog Prince really is a story about facing fears and moving beyond being afraid of a frog and overcoming your phobia once and for all. Regardless, you live in a day when princesses and frogs have a different connotation all together. If you have a deep and abiding fear of frogs, there is no reason to be ashamed. You really aren't alone. This is one of the more common phobias out there. The news that should really make you jump for joy though is that it is very easily treated with hypnotherapy.
Is it Really Necessary to Cure this Particular Fear?
The fear of frogs, for many, does not rate high on the priority list of things to do. Unless you are passionate about your garden but can't enter it for fear of frogs chances are this isn't a fear that is going to impact your daily life. If it does, you definitely need to make every effort to move past it as quickly as possible. Even if you don't come across frogs on a regular basis this can be an inconvenient fear. Children love frogs, how will you respond when one of your children brings one home? Can you enter the reptile cage at the zoo without being overwhelmed with panic or the fear of seeing a frog?
Curing Your Fear of Frogs
There are many ways you can go about curing your frog phobia. Hypnotherapy and NLP is one of the most effective methods you can follow. It works so well because it teaches your mind to view the object of fear, in this case frogs, from a dispassionate point of view. When you remove the fear, or look beyond the fear, you are able to see frogs without the panic reflexes kicking in. In other words, you are able to maintain control of the situation.
You should avoid immersion programs that put you in a position to confront your phobia of frogs head on. These are only asking for a full blown panic attack and making the fear even more difficult to get rid of if you ever try again. Choose a kinder, gentler approach that removes the fear before you confront the frogs you are so afraid of. Get rid of your fear of frogs today and begin to enjoy the best life without fear has to offer.
