Felix Baumgartner had a problem. In order to space dive from a tiny ballon 120,000 feet into the stratosphere, make a freefall jump at speeds breaking the sound barrier and parachute back to earth, he had to wear a specially designed pressure suit. But it made him claustrophobic. How did he handle it? He took a year off of training, went home to Austria and used hypnosis to get over his fear of the suit. Guess what? It worked.
According to hypnotherapist Paige Wacker, if you can imagine it and you can believe it, then you can achieve it. Hypnosis frees the mind of limiting thoughts, allowing us to accomplish great things. Just look at Felix Baumgartner.
