The Tuesday June 3rd discussion group was not held due to technical difficulties. As a result the next discussion group on Tuesday June 10th will focus on the two chapters originally intended for June 3rd (“Eric's Journey - 8” and “Walt's Journey - 8” in God Does Not Want You to Be in Pain). This Tuesday (June 10th) the call-in discussion group will be discussing “Eric's Journey - 8” and “Walt's Journey - 8” in God Does Not Want You to Be in Pain by forum members Eric "Herbie" Watson and Walt Oleksy.

In "Eric's Journey: Chapter Eight - Visualizations with Meditations" Eric focuses on the important role visualizations can play in TMS healing. Coupled with meditation and affirmations, Eric writes that visualizations and imagery can help in overcoming fear and reprogramming anger. Building on this, Eric talks about how integrating these images/visualizations also help with resuming physical activity. Eric also encourages people to include a specific direction or goal in visualizations to make them more effective. He concludes his chapter by reminding us of the importance of conditioning in TMS healing: "Remember, anything you do in TMS healing therapy you need to condition yourself to do." In his chapter, Walt discusses the benefits of living in the present. Fully living in the present, Walt writes, means "you are living where life is happening." He includes personal vignettes and summaries of posts from this forum that illustrate this. He also includes a modified list, originally by Josh Becker, outlining ways to live in the present. The steps range from smiling to forgiveness to eliminating worry. Walt also includes a number of quotes on living in the present by various famous people. @Walt Oleksy and @Eric "Herbie" Watson, I'd love to read some of your thoughts on these two chapters before tomorrow's call if you have time.
