What Happens During a Pain Relief Visualization Session
A visualization session is an hour-long conversation with your subconscious about what visualization statements you may be able to use to help relieve your pain. Here's how the session works.
Visualization statements represent the specific language that your subconscious wants you to read to it several times a day to help it to ease your pain. The statements are simple and are targeted directly at the main factors that could bring you relief.
You can obtain these statements by learning how to communicate directly with your own subconscious mind. The process is straightforward and can be done at home by working with a facilitator over the telephone. You you need no special skills and no previous experience in working with the subconscious.
It may be beneficial to explore the use of the subconscious for pain relief regardless of whether you have back pain or pain in the neck or other extremities, arthritis pain, fibromyalgia pain, and neuropathic pain (nerve pain).
The Purpose of the Session
The purpose of a visualization session is to identify the specific visualization statements that your subconscious wants you to read to it to help reduce your pain. Since the subconscious can only respond to Yes/No questions, it can be challenging to find out exactly what it thinks will work.
In addition, special care has to be taken with language when asking any question of the subconscious. For example, it doesn't like extremes, so words like "absolutely" produce inaccurate results. It gets confused when you string too many adjectives together. It sometimes says No when it would say Yes if it understood the question better. And so on.
Based on experience we've developed extensive lists of questions about brain and body chemistry, the musculoskeletal system, the immune system, hormones, emotions, and the other pain relief factors. These questions use carefully-crafted language that helps to avoid many of the difficulties involved in communicating with the subconscious.
Talking To Your Subconscious
During the visualization session a facilitator poses these questions to your subconscious over the telephone while you work a tool known as a Chevreul pendulum. This is a simple device that you can make at home in about two minutes. It's been used for almost 175 years to obtain answers from the subconscious.
As each question is asked, you simply respond with Yes, No, Maybe, or Don't Want to Answer. The facilitator records each answer and determines where to go next with the questioning.
The process may not make much sense to your conscious mind, and that's fine--the purpose is to allow the subconscious to speak. Answers will come out one by one, which in the end will allow the facilitator to build the visualization statements that the subconscious thinks will help relieve your pain.
After the Session
At the end of the hour the facilitator will let you know when to expect an emailed list of visualization statements--usually they ship within 48 hours. He or she will also discuss the preferred time and day of the week for four follow-up sessions and agree on a schedule that works for both of you.
The subconscious is quite powerful. When programmed through the very visualizations that it suggests, it may be able to turn episodes of uncontrolled pain into events over which you have a degree of control.
