The Power of
Positive Remembering

How to Overcome Fear by releasing the power of your Memories

You can use the Power of Positive Remembering to overcome fear and phobias.

You can do this because all fears and phobias have been learned and stored in your memory.

The sight or even thought of dogs, heights, insects, small places and every other kind of phobia have become automatic triggers for fear. In other words the sight, sound, or thought of these things act like the key which unlocks the physical response of fear.

Through the Power of Positive Remembering you can change the keys, alter them so they do not automatically unlock fear.

Your body has a natural reflex we call fear. Scientists call this reflex the flight or fight response. In other words, your body when faced with something threatening will automatically get ready to fight or run. It does this by activating the sympathetic nervous system which causes these changes to happen to your body.


SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM
CAUSES THE FIGHT OR FLIGHT RESPONSE

FIGHT OR FLIGHT RESPONSE CAUSES:

  • Increased blood pressure
  • Increased rate of breathing
  • Increase in blood flow to muscles of arms and legs
  • Increase in heart rate
  • Increase in metabolism
  • Decrease in blood flow to digestive system,
    which inhibits the stomach
  • Increased body temperature
  • Produce more perspiration
  • Suppress the immune system

What does this biology lesson have to do with phobias?

The answer is your memories are never stored alone. They are always grouped with other related memories and emotions.

You have the flight or fight response when you're born. If some day you are bitten by a dog or just witness someone else being bitten your memory of the event will be grouped with the fear response.

Now when you see a dog, even a friendly dog that is no danger to you at all, the fight or run response is automatically remembered also. What was once a natural defense to keep you from being hurt is now activated every time you see, hear, or even imagine a dog. Any dog, no matter how big, little, aggressive or friendly.


How can Positive Remembering help?

You can do the same exercise you do to reduce pain. You can pay full attention to your fear. Pick it apart. Look at every detail of it. Pay attention to exactly what you are afraid of.

Milton Erickson gives an example of this method. He writes:


"Consider the child who is afraid of dogs, awfully afraid of dogs, especially of that great big brown dog. She is really terrified of dogs and of their barking. . . .You center her attention down and down and down to that bite the great big brown dog gave her on her knee; to the bite he gave her on the face; to the fact that the dog wasn't barking when he bit her on the face; he wasn't barking when he bit her on the knee; that he was a big dog, not a little dog; that he was a great big brown dog, not a little willy black dog. And you are constantly emphasizing this girl's reality to the great big brown dog that bit her; to that one dog that bit her on the face and bit her on the knee. You take her all-inclusive, comprehensive, phobic reaction to dogs in general and you narrow it down [to the dog that actually bit her].

. . As she tells you all about that great big brown dog she cuts her problem down to the point where she can tell you that your big short-legged brown dog is a nice dog, because he is not a great big brown dog. [You can gradually add more distinctions until the generalized phobia is reduced back to the original fright which is no longer a problem since no current reality can exactly match the past.]

With pain you first describe the pain in detail, then you describe the areas of comfort in detail until you get the comfort memories active. In the case of fear you can also describe your fear in great detail, then you can describe the things you are not afraid of.

When you pick something apart you destroy it. When you divide a general fear into small parts you conquer it.

The important thing to remember in Positive Remembering is to not fight or resist the fear. You are not trying to get rid of all fear. You are only picking your general fear apart and re-defining it to a specific fear. If you try to fight pain or fear you are really only giving them more power. Because if you pay attention it you are automatically activating more groups of memories which are related to the pain or fear.

 

In the next chapter we are going to learn how to reduce stress. But the techniques you are going to learn in the power to reduce stress are very important to how to overcome fear. You will learn that the body has a natural opposite response to the flight or fight response. In other words your body already has a way to counteract the bad effects of the flight or fight response. If fear is connected to the flight or fight response then fear will be removed when the opposite relaxing response is active.
