I should like to tell of the healing...

I should like to tell of the healing of extreme fear of flying. Several years ago f went up three different times on fifteen-minute flights. Fear of great intensity attended each experience, mounting to an attack of hysteria on the last occasion. I refused to go up again, regardless of reason. I talked this situation over with a practitioner, who expressed the thought that should a need ever arise, I could, by looking to God for help, meet it just as any other human need is always met when one turns to divine Love.

A year or more ago it appeared that my husband might be offered a wonderful opportunity to work in Europe. To save time he would have to fly; but our son and I planned to go by boat. I spent many prayerful hours on the entire situation and kept my thought in line with God, knowing that to trust ourselves to His care was complete wisdom. Then I decided not to try to plan ahead but to meet each new day with fresh inspiration, listening always for the still small voice to guide me.

One night, when we were discussing transportation, I heard myself saying that I thought we should all go over together. This could only mean that we would all fly. My family were certain that they were not hearing correctly, but I was quick to reply that this seemed to be the right answer.
