Overcoming Fear Of Public Speaking With Hypnosis
Is your fear of public speaking hurting you personally and professionally?
Speaking in public is a common source of stress for everyone. In fact, when most people list
what are their major fears in life, public speaking ranks pretty close to the top for everyone. If you need to
overcome this public speech anxiety phobia to interact with others and come across as more confident, hypnosis can
be one of the most successful ways to help you eliminate this fear and help you start
speaking more confidently in public.
Why Is Hypnosis Effective?
Hypnosis is so effective because it goes to the root of the problem instead of just treating the
symptoms. Your fear of public speaking is rooted in your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind is what controls
your life when you run on “autopilot.” It is primarily concerned with survival. Once something that you've
experienced has been categorized as a painful, your subconscious mind works to avoid it at all costs. It doesn't
recognise that you need to do a presentation at work or give a speech in public. As a result, you'll experience
fear manifesting itself as stomach pains, sweaty palms and other physical symptoms. This is your subconscious
mind's way of telling you to stop and do something else. Without reprogramming your subconscious mind, it's
difficult to get rid of public speaking anxiety.
With hypnosis, you can tap into your subconscious mind and replace your old patterns of behavior
with new, empowering behaviors. When you visit a hypnotherapist or use self hypnosis
techniques, you identify exactly what you need to change and establish new belief statements that will
help you make these changes. These statements are normally called affirmations. A lot of people use affirmations without going into a hypnotic state. However,
affirmations are most effective when they are used in hypnosis. Each of the statements are imprinted on the
subconscious mind. Instead of fear being your natural state, you'll feel empowered whenever you have to do any
If you don't have a hypnotherapist in your area, or want to undertake this yourself, you can use
downloads to help you. You may think it's impossible to hypnotize yourself but it's very doable if you
use audio recordings that guide you into a hypnotic state, like the ones available at HypnosisDownloads.com.
Once you've established what you want to accomplish in the hypnosis session, you create affirmation statements that
deal with overcoming your fear of public speaking. Your affirmation statements may be similar to the following:
I am confident when I speak before others.
I am articulate and inspiring when I speak.
Others enjoy my speaking and are eager to listen.
As you can see, these affirmations statements are phrased in a positive light in the present
tense. It is very important that you phrase your own affirmations statements in a similar way.
After getting your affirmation statements in order, find a quiet and comfortable spot
to sit and listen to the track as it guides you through going into a state of hypnosis. Continue with the self
hypnosis to the run up to the public speaking engagement and you'll be amazed at what a little unconscious
re-education can do to helping you overcome your fear of public speaking.
"I got through it
easily with an A on the speech and an A in the public speaking
"I was reluctant to download a hypnosis session because first
of all I'm putting my credit card and money out there, and also I'm not really a
believer in quick changes. I believe more in practicing to get your outcome and was
not sure if it was going to work."
"Well I was in a public speaking class and I had to do an important speech that I
was nervous about. I listened to the '
Public Speaking Confidence' download a couple
times and I prepared my speech. So when I was in the visualization I was actually
practicing my lines in there and I felt more relaxed about the whole thing. And so
the day that I had to give my speech I felt more at ease, and when I actually went
up there I knew exactly what to do and I got through it easily with an A on the
speech and an A in the public speaking class."
