Is journaling "real enough" to really heal your chronic pain? And how can I keep going when I just feel so bad after I journal? This week, we address these questions!
For today’s purpose I have chosen two questions that cover two themes that I see over and over in my emails. One has to do with structural abnormalities in our bodies, and whether this method of healing will work or not. The second is about how to achieve results without working one-on-one with myself.
I wanted to address one of the questions I received in response to my Healing Yourself from Chronic Pain Series: “Once you JournalSpeak™ your problems, or your anger, or your embarrassment, or your fear, or your concern out... is that it? Or do you have to journal it again?”
Here in part four of the Healing Yourself from Chronic Pain Series, let's do the work. In parts one through three, I’ve talked about the three steps to healing, the science behind healing your physical pain through emotions, and tried to convince you that it is time for you to take charge and heal yourself. Now it’s time to talk about what to do.
In this blog post, it’s time for us to look at the science behind TMS. TMS is a phrase coined by Dr. John Sarno, and it stands for Tension Myositis Syndrome. Tension Myositis Syndrome is just an overreaching term for the process by which our brain sends signals to our body to have physical conditions as a way to protect us from repressed feelings.
Today we are going to explore the three requirements of healing. It’s very important for you to get these three before we go any further in this Healing Yourself series.
Welcome to the Healing Yourself series where I am going to be taking you through a new way to look at healing. I'm hoping that you are willing and open enough to come along, especially if you're hurting really badly.
I’m telling you that an emotional exercise can cure a physical symptom. I’m telling you that a pain or affliction which has owned you for years can be completely resolved by following a simple program of self-discovery. I’m suggesting a profound shift in the way you think about your physical pain and symptoms… or am I?
After my August 5th TV appearance on Hallmark Channel's HOME & FAMILY Show on healing chronic pain, I've been getting a lot of questions regarding why our bodies react to repressed emotions by sending pain signals to different areas within us. Let me do my best to explain.
This weekend two people are getting married, one of whom wasn't sure she would see her 23rd birthday. She was so sick that she couldn't function in her life in almost any capacity. Tomorrow she will walk down the aisle in no pain, and equally importantly, with no fear. I invite you to begin to believe in something again.
I have the cure for chronic pain. This may be difficult for you to believe - mostly because you have hoped before, and your hope has been dashed by returning agony, and you’re wary and weary of trusting again. The pain is a merciless jailor.
