This Overcome Fear of Flying guided self-hypnosis program was designed to assist the listener in releasing fears of flying, gaining positive associations with air travel, gaining flexibility and resiliency while traveling, and getting to sleep on airplanes. The hypnosis induction features isochronic tones, which are a form of brainwave entrainment to help achieve deeper relaxation. Also included within this program is an extended affirmations track; a meditation track (partly guided, with ancient Solfeggio frequencies); and, as an extra bonus, an exciting and powerful drum-journey bodywork track. Using an alternate induction, hypnotic drum beats, and posthypnotic suggestions related to overcoming fear of flying, this drum journey is designed to get the listener out of the brain and back into the body. Many find this useful for releasing energy blocks and healing and integrating the mind, body, and spirit. Written and narrated by Anna Thompson, MA, MHP, LMHC, advanced clinical hypnotherapist.

There is a conspiracy to force Lis Miller to date men so socially inept even their mothers doubt their marriageability. A series of dates, each one more awful than the last, brings Lis to Jake, the pilot. In his tinkered together airplane, Jake flies Lis inverted to Block Island where she´s treated to a gourmet meal of fried Mars Bars. Eager to escape the ceaseless matchmaking, Lis boards a jet to California. En route, the flight makes national headlines, and who´s sitting in the cockpit? Jake. With Jake in her world, life is more upside down than right-side up. But just maybe that´s not a bad thing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kerri McCann.
