Notes on "Mind Tricks for Pain"
These notes pertain to the episodes, "'Mind Tricks for Pain' Introduction," "Changing the Color," and "Breathing Into." Note 1: You can do either one of these by itself, or you can do them in sequence. If “Changing the Color” removes the pain completely, there is no reason to do the “Breathing Into.” On the other hand, for some people, one of these will work better than the other. Note 2: You can also do the first exercise in with the auditory mode, asking yourself “What sound does the pain make?” or “What note?” or “What chord?”, then changing it to a better, more comfortable sound (note or chord). This may work better if you are more auditory than visual – I have used it with musicians, for instance, with good results. I have never tried it in the gustatory or olfactory modalities, but they would probably work too, with the right person. Note 3: You can also do these “mind tricks” with your eyes open, especially if you are familiar with the process. Closing the eyes may help you focus, but is not absolutely necessary. So once you get good at these, you can do them while driving, or even walking around.

Breathing Into
Here is a second "mind trick" to eliminate or reduce pain you are feeling somewhere in your body. Be sure to listen to the previous episode, "'Mind Tricks for Pain' Introduction." Also see my blog on "Breathing Into" - https://www.hypnosissilverspring.com/blog-1/pain-control/ - where I talk about how I used this technique with my 87-year-old mother-in-law to relieve pain and swelling in her foot and leg.

"Mind Tricks for Pain" Introduction
This is an introduction to the two "Mind Tricks" episodes, "Changing the Color" and "Breathing Into," which show you actual techniques, things you can do by yourself to eliminate or reduce your pain. Also see my blog on "Breathing Into" - https://www.hypnosissilverspring.com/blog-1/pain-control/ - where I talk about how I used this technique with my 87-year-old mother-in-law to relieve pain and swelling in her foot and leg. Pain is all in the mind By this I don’t mean that pain is not real – it is very real when you are experiencing it! Pain involves a signal, from a nerve, say – but the signal is not the pain. The pain, the suffering, is what your brain does with the signal. And our brains have the capability to modify, or even ignore the signal, and with it, change or even eliminate the pain! For example: A young woman is driving in her car, her newborn baby in the back seat, strapped into a baby carrier. She goes through an intersection – the light is green – and BAM!, somebody runs a red light and slams right into her. What is the first thing she is going to do after the accident? Yes, you say, check on the baby. So she unbuckles her seat belt, twists around, and checks the baby, who seems to be ok. Only then does she realize that her arm is broken! Where was the pain when she was checking on the baby? She wasn’t feeling it – she had something more important to pay attention to. We all have this capability, and not just in extreme situations. It’s a matter of knowing how to engage, to use that capacity – mind tricks – to reduce or eliminate perceived pain. A caveat In modifying our perception of pain, it is important to use some common sense. The pain is there for a reason! (Though sometimes a person experiences pain when there is no apparent reason, especially with chronic pain.) If you sprain your ankle, the pain is warning you, “Stay off that ankle! – you may injure it further. If you have a toothache, go to a dentist; it could be something serious. If you are feeling pain and don’t know what is causing it, go to a doctor and have it checked out. But once you have been checked out; once you know the cause and are doing everything you can for it, it’s ok to use you mind to eliminate the pain, or at least turn it down. Here are two simple and quick “mind tricks” that will help you do that.

The Zone - A brief self-hypnosis exercise
Do this exercise as you wake up and as you are about to go to sleep. During your day, take yourself into The Zone whenever you need a mental vacation or are about to start a new task or activity, to give yourself the edge of being in the moment. When you do, you will automatically feel better and become more effective in whatever you are doing. I teach this exercise to all of my clients, guiding them through it and asking them to practice at least three times per day, for 2 to 3 minutes at a time. When you are going to sleep, don't set a time limit - just take yourself into The Zone with the intention of staying there all night (you will pass into sleep after a while!). For the shorter form, what you will actually do, see the episode "The Zone - short form"

The Zone - short form
Here is "Finding the Zone" in short form, what you would actually do (at least three times per day!). Unless you are about to go to sleep, set your “mental timer” to however long you want to do it for, then press play. There is no ending in the recording - when you want to come back, shout to yourself, in your mind, “I deserve to be happy, healthy, and successful,” then bring yourself back and open your eyes. None of this is sacred! If the expansion part doesn't work for you, omit it. You can also modify the mantra ("I live with a happy heart, a peaceful mind, and a playful spirit") though I recommend keeping the "playful spirit" part or its equivalent. For the full version, that I guide all my clients through in our first meeting, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PC-E4BZE54&t=78s. Happy trancing!

Core Transformation with Catherine, Session 2
Connirae Andreas, Ph.D., developed Core Transformation in 1989 (Core Transformation: Reaching the Wellspring Within, Connirae Andreas and Tamara Andreas, Real People Press, 1994). Core Transformation is a multi-step procedure that draws upon several earlier NLP methods, including Parts, Six-Step-Reframe, and Timeline. It works on both the conscious and unconscious levels.    Through Core Transformation a "Part" - an aspect of the psyche - that might have been experienced as a problem, impediment, or block is transformed into a gateway to something wonderful and healing, through evoking its Core State, a high-level existential or spiritual state of being, that represents the highest intention behind the way the Part initially shows itself.   This is Catherine's second Core Transformation session. Toward the end she talks about her experience and we discuss CT.  You can view Session 1 on YouTube at https://youtu.be/ShIVgmzMi5o.    For more on Core Transformation, see https://www.hypnosissilverspring.com/spiritual-life-coaching/ and https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/core-transformation-connairae-andreas/1114270200.

The Buddha Story
When the Thai government decides to build a road right through the monastery where a centuries-old clay stature of The Buddha stands, the monks are very upset. They try to persuade the government to change the path of the road, or not build it, but to no avail .... A powerful metaphoric teaching tale! I first heard this story from Connirae Andreas, in her Core Transformation class.
