I’ve observed that overcoming fear of flying is a process. There are no “quick fixes.” Recently I received the following email from Suzanne, another traveler on her path to flying fearlessly, that illustrates this in detail.

Hello,

I want to thank you for your help over the past 4 years and pass on this review of your materials to other fearful fliers.

I flew often as a child and loved it.  Fear of flying occurred unexpectedly in my 20s during a normal flight.  It increased over the years to a level where I would become hysterical on board.  I flew infrequently and only where necessary – that is overseas.  In Europe I became a veteran of many long (and enjoyable) train journeys from my home in Scotland – to France, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Sovenia and Croatia.  Often I would take the train out to meet my husband or family at our destination.  By the time my daughter took a gap year in Canada four years ago, I had avoided flying for years and was too frightened even to go on a fear of flying course because I would have to go up in a plane.

 I knew I had to fly that year, and in absolute desperation sent for your Flight Harmoniser CD and information book.  I read the book and listened to the CD on my iPOD daily for 6 weeks before my flight.  Far from fearless, I nevertheless coped well before and during the flight, assisted by prescribed medication.  I managed to make 4 transatlantic flights that year.  Since then I have flown very occasionally when train travel was not an option – each time using the flight harmoniser beforehand and assisted by medication.  Each flight has become a little easier to do and finally this autumn I found the courage to tackle a flight to Singapore – 15 hours.  I was surprised to find I did not dread flying and was rather looking forward to the journey.  I felt happy to use the flight harmoniser a couple of times beforehand.  As we were travelling via Dubai, I knew I could not take prescribed medication and would have to rely on the flight harmoniser and other coping strategies during the flight.  I found the flight perfectly comfortable and was relaxed even though the first leg of the journey meant travelling through 6 hours of turbulence.  I even slept during the turbulence.  Our plane was destined for Melbourne, and when we arrived in Singapore I felt that I could have tackled the final leg to Australia. The sense of liberation I felt was incredible – the whole world was finally opening up to me.  Three weeks after my return I flew to Milan.  It took 2 hours – the train journey takes 2 days. I still don’t like flying.  But I do find it exciting now and certainly don’t dread it.  And I think there may come a time when I will enjoy it – like I did as a child.

What I would like to pass on to others with fear of flying is that, for me, the materials have worked their magic over a period of years, rather than weeks.  For me, every flight was a little easier than the one before until I found I didn’t dread flying at all. I don’t understand WHY the harmoniser works, but it does work and that’s good enough for me.  Next year I plan to fly to Copenhagen, Vancouver, Singapore and Vietnam.  If I can do it, anyone can.

Regards,

Suzanne F.
