* Alina did a Skype session with me earlier this year. Her hope was to get rid of the tremendous fear she felt while attempting to skydive, specifically in order to complete a certification program. Immediately after listening to her session, she made a successful tandem jump without feeling any fear. Shortly thereafter, she enrolled in a skydiving certification program… and now we have the results!

In her words…

“Great news! I attended ground school on Sunday, June 16. While taking a break, all three students and the instructor witnessed a catastrophic and terrifying landing by one of skydivers at the dropzone. The guy had to be taken to the hospital right away for the bone breaks he sustained. Surprisingly, this event did not influence my desire to jump at all!

Anyway, long story short: I ended up doing two jumps that day: Category A and B. No fear whatsoever! None!!! I did not fear the door at all. AT ALL!!!  This was the experience I’ve always wanted it to be.

Wow. When I landed after the first jump, I shrieked in delight and joy.

Well, as hard as it is to believe it, I graduated AFF on October 3rd! I am to progress to coach jumps and then to solo jumping! If it was not for hypnosis, even restarting (not to mention, finishing) the AFF program would not have been a possibility!

This is an incredibly liberating experience! I can’t wait to repeat it again, and again, and again, and again!

I am a walking testament that if someone who was so afraid even of minimal heights (such as ladders), can jump out of a plane at 14,000 feet, anything is possible. For everyone.

Hugs and gratitude,”
