Conquering the fear of flying…
Conquering the fear of flying can be easy when you chose to put your mind to changing an old belief thought pattern. As you know we aren’t scared of everything in life as that would just be down right crazy.
Some people have a fear of dogs and you don’t, you tell them that they’re alright and nothing will happen to them. However the person really doesn’t believe you and then they start to panic, this will only subside when they and the dog are far away from each other.
This is how you have to think when you’re afraid of flying and wanting to conquer the fear of flying.
Don’t be afraid of the dark…
Here is another thought you can have that will get you to come to your senses so to speak. Remember a time as a child and you had a fear. This could have been afraid of the dark, you always had to sleep with the light on. No matter how many times you where told that there wasn’t anything there to be afraid of, you had to have the light on!
You don’t have to sleep with the light on now that you’re a grow-up, WHY? At some realisation in your mind you knew that you no longer needed the light on to sleep. When this happened you realised that you felt a lot better and more relaxed.
You have to take notice when I say fear isn’t real because if it was, you would still need that light to be on so that you could sleep.
What A brilliant mind you have!
Now I would like you to utilise this part of your thinking to exercise your brilliant mind to eliminate the part of you that is fearful of flying, because the fear isn’t real. I can imagine if you have a young child that you will be telling them the exact same thing as you where told that there’s nothing to be afraid of.
It’s all pretend…
When we have fears even though they aren’t real, if you say that fear of flying is real, then you will believe your own statement. On the other hand however, if you are told that you cannot do something such as amount to anything good, because this is a statement from another person we choose not to agree with them and you will go out of your way to prove them wrong.
One could say at this point that you haven’t got the guts to fly and you would feel bound by your word to prove me wrong and I could also say that I dare you?
Be a skilled warrior!
Now you have to start making better choices by moving forward to taking tentative steps towards accomplishing your goal of flying. If it helps you, think of that time of being afraid in the past and use your skills that you will conquer this forever as you are the brave warrior.
Lets face it at the end of the day you really don’t have to fly, but if you don’t conquer this you will be wondering what might have been and like the child with the light on you’ll always stay like that.
