Gizer's Story - Teaching Children (and Adults) how to deal with Fears

In order to help my Dallas / Fort Worth (and beyond) Hypnosis / NLP clients – young and old to Overcome Fears and develop Confidence, I enlisted the aid of Gizer, a very wise, furry, four legged friend from a few years back.

This is a story about Gizer and how Gizer helped some of his Young Friends remove some FEARS that were bothering them.

Maybe you’ve had some Fears bothering you too and after you listen to this story, maybe a few times or maybe several times, I think you will find that it helps you as well as it did Gizer’s friends.

So let’s get started, one day Gizer . . .

One day Gizer decided he wanted to go to visit his friends at the Zoo.
Now right away, you may be wondering who is Gizer. Gizer is a very old Dog who has lots of friends. He has lots of Dog friends of course. He has Cat friends, Bird friends, Squirrel friends, and many other Animal friends. And he also has People friends too – Girls and Boys, and Mommies and Daddies, GrandParents friends, Uncle and Aunt friends, and even Teacher friends.
And who are his friends he goes to visit at the Zoo?
They’re Young Animal Friends who all play together in a special area for Young Zoo Animals. Sometimes they play in a park and sometimes they go to school together. Sometimes Gizer is invited to teach classes at their school, but today he just went to visit them in the park where they play.
When he got there, he was very surprised to find them all sitting around looking worried, sad, and well, just not happy.
He asked them why they were looking this way – worried, sad, and well, just not happy.
Bob the Bear answered first. He said they were having a really good time playing and all of a sudden a mouse had run out and scared Ellie the Elephant and some of the older animal kids – who were Bullies, started making fun of her for being afraid of a mouse and then Ellie started crying.
Then Maria the Monkey, who was afraid of Bullies got scared because she saw them being mean to Ellie for being afraid of a mouse and she was afraid they would start being mean to her too.
But when LeBron the Lion saw that Ellie and Maria were afraid of the Bullies, he went over and stood beside Ellie and Maria. And the Bullies left!
And then several of the young ZOO Animal Children started thinking about things they were afraid of and they just all sat down together and started talking about FEARS and being Afraid. And the more they talked about FEARS and being Afraid, the more afraid and sad and unhappy they were.
Gizer looked at them and said “How interesting!”
Gizer said that a lot when he wanted to make a point. Why? Because when you say “how interesting”, it seems to get people’s attention.
All the Zoo Animal Children gathered around Gizer to find out what he thought was so interesting.
When they did, he asked them if anyone was afraid of anything else besides mice and bullies.
