What is a fear?
A fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm. We were born with 2 fears. the fear of noise and the fear of falling. Everything else has been learned and can be unlearned. Fear is a natural response to our survival mechanism. The survival mechanism triggers our fight, flight or freeze mode. Sensory fear is triggered by a historic threat or warning expression, conceptual fear is triggered when you expect your happiness to change. The greater the threat, the more physical effects are triggered. Fear triggers a suppressive mental effect.
What is a phobia?
Phobias are more pronounced than fears. They develop when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object. A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder, defined by a persistent and excessive fear of an object or situation. The phobia typically results in a rapid onset of fear and is present for more than six months.

The good news!
We were not born with fear's and phobia's. We have e learned to have this way since childhood. The good news is we can un learn the behaviours by breaking down the neuro pathways (the way we think and feel about the emotion) and create new ways of thinking and being.
