The 7 Best Ways To Use Your Subconscious for Pain Relief


Your subconscious has influence over 7 different factors that could be causing your pain. Here's what you need to know about them so you can try to get relief.

The most effective way to use the subconscious for pain relief is to use visualization statements to encourage it to attack the pain process from multiple directions.

Visualization statements represent the specific language that your subconscious wants you to read back to it to help ease your pain. They're 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.

This approach may be helpful in addressing back pain or pain in the neck or other extremities, arthritis pain, fibromyalgia pain, or neuropathic pain (nerve pain).

Reducing the Pain Signal

? Pain Relief Factor #1 - Brain and Body Chemistry. Chemical reactions move pain signals along a pathway from your body to your brain. By focusing your subconscious on potential weak points on the pathway, you may be able to reduce the signal enough to get relief.

Avoiding Body System Triggers of the Pain Signal

? Pain Relief Factor #2 - The Musculoskeletal System. Your muscles, joints, tissues, ligaments, tendons and a number of other structures can be a source of back pain, arthritis pain, or other conditions. When you give your subconscious specific visualizations about these structures, it may be able to provide relief.

? Pain Relief Factor #3 - The Immune System. When your immune system is malfunctioning it could be implicated in arthritis pain, fibromyalgia pain, or other conditions that cause pain. By using visualizations you may be able to address the malfunction effectively enough to ease your pain.

? Pain Relief Factor #4 - The Endocrine System. A hormonal imbalance could be contributing to your pain. The organs that produce hormones may be weak, or the levels of hormones that they produce may be out of balance with one another. Through your subconscious you may be able to relieve the imbalance enough to ease pain.

Avoiding Lifestyle Triggers of the Pain Signal

? Pain Relief Factor #5 - Emotions. By visualizing a weakening of the connections between fear, anger and other emotions to your pain, you may be able to reduce the number of pain signals that are triggered. In addition, you may be able to weaken the strength of those signals once they are generated.

? Pain Relief Factor #6 - Food. Certain foods may be contributing to your pain. You can then try to use the subconscious to expose what may be the most prominent offenders--the nightshade vegetables, dairy products, wheat, or others. You can then try avoiding them to see if that eases your pain.

? Pain Relief Factor #7 - Sleep. If you're in pain you probably can't get enough sleep. This causes a vicious cycle--sleep deprivation makes the perception of pain worse, which further prevents sleep. Visualizations about a comfortable position to sleep in, and about other factors, may help you to break this cycle.

Engaging the Subconscious

If you can learn to engage your subconscious, you most likely will be able to identify which of these seven factors apply to you. You can then use visualization statements to give your subconscious the daily reinforcement it needs to possibly take the edge off your pain.
