Pain is all in the mind
By this I don’t mean that pain is not real – it is very real when you are experiencing it!
Pain involves a signal, from a nerve, say – but the signal is not the pain. The pain, the suffering, is what your brain does with the signal. And our brains have the capability to modify, or even ignore the signal, and with it, change or even eliminate the pain!
In 50s comic books, there were ads for a book, HOW TO GET GIRLS WITH HYPNOSIS - every adolescent boy's dream, right, to use hypnosis to seduce women. But the message in the book was a little different: learn "SA Hypnosis" (self-hypnosis) and work on yourself!
Imagine yourself, just for a moment, totally free of everything and anything that is holding you back. Imagine a you that is completely ready, willing and able to get more out of life. If you can do that, you are on your way.
