Overcome Fear of Public Speaking Anxiety / Presentation Nerves - with Hypnosis
Public speaking has been surveyed as being the number one fear, yes - even ahead of death - but it actually doesn't need to be! By going to the very source of the fear, it can be reversed, to the point where you truly begin to enjoy speaking in public. So here is the checklist...
Does Your Mouth Go Dry with Fear During Speeches?
Do Your Voice or Hands Get the 'Shakes'?
Do You Feel Thoughts of Panic, or Forget What You were Going to Say?
No problem - this can be easily overcome, by going right to the source of the anxiety.
So what causes all these emotional symptoms when we speak in public? Purely and simply, the feeling that we will not be good enough.
This means that the symptoms of 'fear of public speaking' involve our levels of confidence and self esteem, as well as our knowledge and confidence in our topic.
These doubts and fears from presentation nerves reside within the subconscious mind.
Hypnosis and visualization work specifically with this area, and are powerful and effective methods of dealing with these symptoms.
For instance, regularly visualizing yourself (ie. mentally imagining yourself) performing a seamless speech can greatly improve speaking confidence, as this mentally rehearses the successful speech and helps to re-program the subconscious for a positive and successful performance.
This needs to be done regularly however, in order to overcome the existing 'program' that is already running, which is causing the current symptoms of fear during the performance.
Positive self-talk, also known as an affirmation or mantra, can also be useful - both as a preventative measure, and also to help deal with the symptoms before you are about to give a speech.
This is where you mentally repeat a positive-reinforcing statement in your mind, over and over again until the subconscious mind accepts it and acts upon it.
You can create your own statements, keeping them short, present-tense and positively-worded, and simply repeat them over and over again in your mind.
For instance, some possible affirmations might include: "everyone loves to hear me speak", "perfect, relaxed talk", "easy and effortless speech", "I am calm and relaxed", etc.
De-sensitization can also be helpful for overcoming fear of talking to groups and public speaking - which basically means to give as many talks to small organized groups of friends or family as you can, to de-sensitize yourself to talking in front of groups before you have to give the 'big' speech to your audience.
Meditation, relaxation exercises or vigorous exercise on the actual day of your talk, as well as some deep breathing exercises before the speech, can also help to alleviate some of the major symptoms of nerves.
But if you give public speeches fairly regularly, or if you need to ensure that you remove the symptoms from returning once and for all, then hypnosis is the most foolproof way of dealing with public speaking and presentation nerves.
This hypnosis recording works at the very source of the issue and makes the necessary 'software' changes in order to steadily decrease, and even cease altogether, the symptoms of nervousness.
It uses powerful tailor-made hypnotic suggestions and visualization to re-program your subconscious to make public speeches easier, more pleasurable and with more emotional control, as time goes on.
You can also customize the guided visualization each time, to perfectly suit whatever talk you are about to give, to more closely tailor the hypnosis to your exact needs.
