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
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
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.
