Siderophobia – The Fear of Stars

Of the many types of irrational phobias that exist out there, one of the most obscure ones is the fear of stars. This is also known as siderophobia. Although very rare and indeed quite peculiar, it is a very real problem for a small number of people.

Phobias are irrational fears of any sort of thing. There are so many different types but some are much more common than others. It is impossible to list them all here, since there are literally hundreds of possible different types of phobias. Phobias are psychological conditions that usually can be eradicated through a number of ways. Some phobias maybe more powerful than others as well and one of the most common phobias is perhaps the fear of heights.

As with any phobia, siderophobia comes with intense feelings of anxiety and overwhelming thoughts. Disturbed vision and increased heart rate can also be common symptoms, some of these being quite dangerous potentially. Getting rid of such a phobia can be complicated and there are a number of different methods that people use, some reporting more success than others.

To put it as simply as possible, you basically need to redirect the unconsciousness of your mind. You need to realise the or fear is utterly irrational and really has no basis. You basically need to reprogram your mind and you might find it hypnotism is a way to do this.

As with any phobia, most of these things begin when you are a child. They often start due to an irrational fear you had when you were very young. It could be part of your personality, particularly if you have a general tendency to feeling anxious. There are a number of reasons, but getting down to the root cause is often the best way to help you recover.
