If constant pain is part of your everyday experience and is limiting what you do in your life you might like to check out the article in the May 5-11-2012 New Zealand Listener “No Pain – Big Gain” pages 16-21. It is what I know and what I believe and it is so great to see it in the public domain.
As a sufferer of chronic pain for some years, I was fortunate enough to spend 6 months at the Pain Clinic, Auckland Hospital where I learnt how to switch off my pain. I remember the first time I realized that I had the ability to work with pain, when I chose to move my pain. All I had to do was close my eyes and ask it to move. The first place I chose was my big toe, and I can assure you this was so much more comfortable than where I normally experienced it I could hardly believe it. I had tried so many different ways to try to get rid of the constant screaming pain and it was limiting my life.
It was the beginning of a journey for me into the world of mind/body relationships and my career as a hypnotherapist. It opened up so much more in my world as I came to understand pain in a way that I didn’t believe possible and allowed me to assist others who were suffering what I had suffered.
So if pain is part of your life, and it is limiting your life, I do very strongly suggest that you at least find a way to read the article, and then perhaps give hypnotherapy a chance to see just how it can help you make such a difference in your life.
