These are the penultimate chapters in God Does Not Want You to Be in Pain. (The book's final chapter is the conclusion "TMS P.S." which we will discuss next week). In his chapter "Affirmations Work," Eric expands on his previous sections in this chapter, reinforcing important topics such as affirmations, reconditioning, patience, and strength. He also spends some time on focusing, which he used when his father passed away. He concludes his final chapter with eight steps to become pain-free, which include tips such as using awareness and mindfulness, practicing self-compassion and forgiveness, using meditation and visualizations, monitoring and identifying reactions, and being aware of stressors and triggers. Walt's chapter, "Faith and Spirituality," talks about the inspiration aspect of TMS healing that comes from having faith, and the different ways to have faith, such as positive thinking. Walt also discusses how we can use faith to overcome fear, which we know fuels TMS. He includes more information about his own religious/spiritual journey and his identity as a Roman Catholic, and how forgiveness played into that journey. Walt also discusses how to increase faith in ways that benefit physical as well as psychological health. The end of his chapter contains different posts from this forum about the role of faith and spirituality in TMS healing, concludes with his and Eric's final thoughts on including the spiritual aspect in their TMS healing book - a decision he says was a no-brainer.
