Arachnophobia is the fear of spiders.

Arachnophobia is the fear of spiders.

This is a very common phobia. If you suffer from the fear of spiders, don’t worry, you are hardly alone.

Usually, people who have arachnophobia also fear spider webs. Why? Because a woven web means that the dreaded bug is probably lurking nearby.

If you’ve ever been caught in a web, you know that spiders tend to hang around at eye level.

They move pretty quickly and erratically. It can look as though they are chasing you.

A single thought can give you that creepy crawly feeling that can last for hours.

Sufferers feel a sense of helplessness and anxiety. They are always on the lookout for spiders. They check their shoes before putting them on. They grab a flashlight and inspect the corners and ceilings above their beds.

If you suffer from arachnophobia:

A tiny picture...

A mere mention of the word...

A passing thought...

...of a spider can send shivers through your body.

When you are thinking rationally, you know that most are small bugs which are harmless to humans. In fact, very few species are actually poisonous to humans.

It’s important to remember that SOME are in fact poisonous. You don’t want to go overboard and become fearless around them.

You may not know how to tell the difference between a harmless one and a poisonous one so it’s a good idea to retain some caution.

Some of the most infamous ones are the tarantula, jumping spiders and wolf spiders. Though they are large and scary looking, their bite is actually less harmful than a bee sting. Unless, of course, you are allergic to them!

It is no surprise that people develop arachnophobia. Some of the root causes for this phobia can be watching horror movies, bumping into a spider as a child or being teased by others.

Self hypnosis is a powerful tool that can be used in overcoming fear of spiders.

The reason self hypnosis is so successful for overcoming fear is because it retrains the unconscious mind
