Fear of flying had prevented MARIE
Ironically this fear had no basis in actually flying itself.
Maries Granny died suddenly when Marie was 9 years old. It was a deep shock to the family and that night Marie had a dream of falling…
She awoke grasping the side of the mattress for support
BECAUSE SHE WAS IN A HIGHLY EMOTIONALLY CHARGED STATE HER MIND
LINKED THIS FALLING EXPERIENCE WITH HER GRANNY DYING.
A few years later
When she heard a conversation on the radio about how safe flying was compared to other forms of transport she heard the commentator flippantly remark “well its not as if they just suddenly fall out of the sky!”
Instantly her subconscious mind linked all the dots. “Suddenly” (Granny died suddenly); “fall” (had that falling dream on the same night). Her mind developed the fear that planes just suddenly fall out of the sky! This is also complicated by a young mind trying to comes to terms with the concept of death and trying to explain the rationale behind death.
When all of the above were dissected in hypnotherapy
Marie brought her current adult level of awareness
To bear on her previous emotional understanding of her grandmothers death. She resolved her fear of flying and has visited almost every country in Europe, making up for all those years that her freedom was curtailed.
