    Inspiring, awesome post, Ryan. Thanks a lot for recording it.

    What advise would you offer for people who are in the midst of their healing journey? People are always eager to hear what works.

    Thanks forest, I will do another video on things that can help people in the middle of there journey. Its just long to type it out, when I was on my journey it helped to hear it and see it from someone. (Hence connection). Your work on this site is sending a ripple effect to the world about tms, thanks for all you do.

    That sounds terrific, Ryan. I look forward to watching it. I know what you mean about connection and think a video works very well for that. Thanks again for your story. It rang really true to me, and helping people share their true messages is what is most exciting for me.

    Also, I know what you mean about bringing up old emotions not being helpful. I agree that it's different for different people, but I don't think that digging emotions up to re-experience them is helpful. In my opinion, learning from them can be more helpful, but even with that, there is only so much you're going to learn. At a certain point, you've gotten the benefit that you're going to get and it's time to live in the present. I suspect that tapping might help with old emotions, but that is a whole other thread.

    @Andy B brought up in another thread that on page 103 of The Divided Mind, Dr. Sarno wrote, "In a survey of 104 of my TMS patients, I found that the perfect-good drive was either the predominant factor, or a very significant factor in 94 percent of the cases." Emotions from childhood, which he listed as "child abuse," were predominant or very significant in only 29 percent. (The third factor, life pressures, came to 47 percent.)

    So that part rang true, too. I like the idea that sometimes you just have to decide to make a change.

    It makes perfect sense to me, as I am a recovering (hopefully) obsessive perfectionist and goodist, constantly chewing on myself. I am sure that every person can dig back into their memories and find traumatic events to dwell on. However, some people are able to move on and some are not. Key is not the emotions themselves, key is how we process and resolve them, and Ryan is 100% spot on in his advice. Easy said than done, but the prize is amazing - happy and rich emotional life without physical pain. So worth to try!

    Fantastic video. There really is something about actually hearing someone talk about their experience, makes it seem real and relatable. Looking forward to the follow up video. Thanks for taking the time to share :)
