Your mind is an incredibly powerful tool and when you can learn to harness it to influence your body, emotions and life, truly amazing things can occur.
Is it any wonder then that research is showing that the more we understand pain, the less we hurt? When we have better conscious understanding of the mechanisms of pain then the pain will often diminish. However, when pain is a mystery, the mind and emotions perpetuate and exacerbate the pain sensation.
In David Butler's book, Explain Pain, he points out that even after the physiological cause of pain is resolved our body's production of stress chemicals such as cortisol and adrenaline will cause the pain sensors to trigger. In other words, even if there is no cause for physical alarm in the body, when your body senses a threat it replays the sense of pain that it had been so accustomed to signaling. So our conscious and subconscious mind have a large role to play when it comes to pain.
Chronic pain in many cases may be chronic because the mind-body association with the pain has not been resolved. A pain that you felt a decade ago can suddenly rear its ugly head again when you are under stressful times.
False, Evidence, Appearing Real. (F.E.A.R.)
If you are suffering from a fear then you know that while the above statement may be true, your body has very real physiological responses to whatever it is that creates a fear for you. This is because your body doesn't actually recognize the difference between something that is real or imagined. This is a blessing and a curse because while it means that your fear may feel as real as the ground beneath your feet, it also means that if you create something different in your mind, you can overcome that fear.
This capacity of the mind is where hypnosis and hypnotherapy can help eliminate fears completely. For some overcoming a fear can be as simple as using an NLP technique. Below are 2 parts of a tried and true NLP technique and 1 technique that I created which can be a great addition after completing the other two techniques:
