"Can Self-Talk Heal Pain?" by Jennifer Mannion

When I decided I wanted to self heal pain relating to all chronic illnesses that I had lived with for the last 6 years -- I had to take a serious look at my thoughts and behaviors. I had to listen closely to my own "self-talk" that was so ingrained I was shocked when I HEARD what I was actually telling myself.

I would wake up every morning telling myself "I feel so sick", "Why me?", "I wonder how I will get through this day.", "I'll never be able to keep up with the kids", "I'll never be able to clean the house", etc. etc. Then I found "The Secret" and the Law of Attraction and it all made sense. I was telling my body to be sick and it was obliging. The Law of Attraction says "Energy flows where attention goes" and I was concentrating on my illnesses and pain so much I was actually making it worse.

So can your self-talk heal you? Yes it can! It will make you feel liberated after only a few days if you are able to keep with it. I put a rubber band around my wrist and actually snapped it when I found myself thinking those negative thoughts about my health. I acknowledged that those thoughts were there but told myself I would feel better by thinking more constructively. What did I switch it to? I started by finding whatever LITTLE part of my body didn't hurt. Be it my little finger, my toes -- with fibromyalgia and chronic mono some days it felt like those were the only parts that were pain free. Anyway, I would concentrate on that one part and feel deep inside THANKFUL for being healthy and for that part being pain free. I would say in my head "I am thankful for my health". After only a few days I felt the difference.

It pays to listen to your self-talk. Are you saying positive things to yourself? Encouraging yourself or discouraging yourself? Saying and concentrating on what you want or what you don't want?

I used this and several other methods to heal myself from chronic pain and ALL my chronic illnesses which I document in my ebook. If you want to find out more about me please visit my website: http://www.thankfulformyhealing.com

Hi Steve, Thanks so much for subscribing and for commenting. Yes, I still have my moments I need to stop and "snap" myself either virtually or with that rubber band. But I am learning and improving and am proud of myself for continuing to move in the right direction. I will check out your blog! Thanks again. Gratefully, Jenny
