Hi Gary,

The message from Carol Angell re: flying struck a chord with me. I had not been abroad for 14 years due to family commitments and old ogs! - well that's what I used to tell everyone. Truth was, I was terrified of flying.

My first flight, back in 1972 necessitated circling the airport and dumping fuel in the midst of a horrendous thunderstorm. Lightning flashing on all sides. I was terrified and, therefore, flew as little as possible after that. Up until last December I had only flown 4 times and each time was worse than the last. I couldn't think, couldn't speak with the fear. The vacations were spent worrying about the flight home and so, in the end, I decided that it just wasn't worth it and have spent the past 14 years here in the UK.

Have you heard the saying "Life begins when the children leave home and the dog dies?" Well, son had left home years before and, in November, we lost our last little dog aged 17 and a half. Now there was no excuse. My husband suggested a quick break in the sun before Christmas. To my surprise I readily agreed because I was so confident that with my invisible friend, EFT, I would be OK. Holiday was duly booked and I did some EFT work on myself and Silvia [Hartmann-Kent] helped me some more on the 'phone. I was surprised that I did not feel worried in the few weeks beforehand. On previous occasions just thinking about what was to come would make my stomach lurch and I would feel sick. This didn't happen.

The morning came and we took a taxi to the airport. I have to admit I felt apprehensive but not afraid. The worst time was the take-off, I didn't like it but it was much, much better than I had anticipated. I was tapping during take-off. Once up I took off my safety belt - I'd never done that before - and visited the toilet a couple of times, this was amazing as I had never seen the inside of the toilet on a 'plane before! I actually looked out of the window, again, I had previously kept my eyes firmly fixed on the seat in front or in the centre of the 'plane.

The holiday was wonderful and I didn't even think about the return journey. Within a week of our return we had booked to go again and, indeed, have just returned from a wonderful 4 week break - the big drawback was having to sort 468 emails on my return. This time it was even better. I only tapped once and actually enjoyed the flight. I felt such a tremendous sense of freedom and relief that I had no qualms about booking to attend the Las Vegas Conference. We are flying to San Francisco and travelling through California before flying from San Diego to Las Vegas. There will be 6 flights in all and I am really looking forward to it all.

As we live near the airport I see 'planes in the distance take off and land all the time. Last year, whenever I saw them I used to think to myself, "I'm glad I'm not in that." It's now changed to, "I wish it was me".!!!!!!

Luv and wishes,

Chrissie Hardisty
