Your Phobia Spells by MarijanStefanovic


									Your Phobia Spells Acrophobia: (Fear Of High Places) Repressed feelings of taking your
own life have resulted in this particular form of phobia. Aerophobia: (Fear Of Flying)
What happens if the pilot does not know what to do in an emergency? What happens if
the emergency door doesn't open? Strangely, it is not the fear of being in the air that
affects you, it is actually your fear of not being in command which leaves you feeling
powerless. Agoraphobia:(Fear Of Going Outdoors) Because all of your life you have
been taught to be successful, somehow you feel the reverse. The precautionary measure
that you take by not mingling outside, assures you of not losing, for the time being
anyway. Arachnophobia: (Fear Of Spiders) Overwhelmingly affecting women,
psychoanalysts interpret the long legs as mother, as a castrating and preying demon.
Others say the spider is seen as possessing bisexual genitalia, therefore casting doubt
concerning one's sexual identity. Claustrophobia: (Fear Of Enclosed Places) Therapists
believe that at a young age, the claustrophobic was forced to stay either in his room or
indoors, rendering him helpless, for which he still has not recovered. Coitophobia: (Fear
Of Sexual Intercourse) Recent studies have concluded that many children, male and
female alike, have manifested a fear of the opposite sex, being caused by having been
sexually abused as a child, and more often than not from a close family member. A
feeling of helplessness became associated in the child's character, which he unfortunately
associates with sexual relations. Gasmophobia: (Fear Of Marriage) The two basic causes
underlying this fear is that while growing up your own parents were constantly battling
with each other, whether physically or emotionally and the fact that you are tied down to
one partner for the rest of your life. Although an immature approach, many analysts
suggest that fear itself has its roots in immaturity. Graphophobia: (Fear Of Writing) You
fear that by signing on the dotted line you may be held accountable. This being caused as
a young child (in school) by someone mocking what you had written, and that turned into
the phobia. Harpaxophobia: (Fear Of Robbers) It is understandable that in this day and
age, when the crime rate has soared, that one is concerned. Nevertheless, when this turns
into a phobia, this is more than just mere concern. This is brought about by a general fear
of being assaulted, because your personality does not allow any infringement on your
being whatsoever. Homophobia: (Fear Of Homosexuals) Men who have anxieties
concerning latent homosexual tendencies, suffer from this phobia, sometimes even acting
violently against them, to suppress admitting the truth. Hydrophobia: (Fear Of Water)
Because at some point in your life you were in some body of water, when you felt
helpless, perhaps near death, which resulted in this fear. Necrophobia: (Fear Of Death)
This has been brought about by someone who was very dear to you and when that person
died, you actually felt abandoned by that person, and to this day you suffer because of
this. Oneirophobia: (Fear Of Dreams) In order to dream you lose a certain degree of
consciousness, which is something that you are not prepared to do. Therefore you are
awake when you should be sleeping, and because you are so fatigued, you are fit to be
tied. Then out of sheer exhaustion, you fall into a deep sleep, albeit short and see horror
movies, which makes your phobia even worse, because you know that by falling asleep,
you'll have these horrible dreams. Osphresiophobia: (Fear Of Body Odors) This sufferer,
having been religiously convinced that the body is full of vice, hence, is dirty, associates
sin with smell and fears he himself as the sinner. Pyrophobia: (Fear Of Fire) Either you or
someone in your memory was engulfed in flames and the emotional scars remain. Joel
Engel is the author of "Handwriting Analysis Self-Taught" (Penguin Books)
