I can't seem to face my unconscious fear, the barrier

    I´m still 80-90% better in general, but I´m currently facing a TMS flare up again. Life pressures from small kids etc is high.

    This is what's happening again now, like many times before. I get hip, lower back and leg pain. I try to do something about it emotionally. I succeed and get quite pain free and relaxed after a few days. The same night of great improvement I have nightmares. It can be that I´m avoiding a murderer. It can be that I´m hunted by dangerous animals. It can be a fight for my life with a relative I dislike.

    I wake up in fear, fall asleep again and then wake up early morning with the pain right back. And no such dream when I´m in a bit of pain. When I did the SEP work a couple years back and got completely pain free and the most relaxed in my body in 20 years, I had the most vivid nightmare ever about being chased and eaten by wolves and woke up terrified.

    It´s like my unconscious mind gets opened up when I´m fully relaxed, tries to start letting shit out while I dream, and I obviously cant handle it since the pain comes back.

    I don't even now what the fear is about?! Any advice from the seasoned veterans here? It feels like a barrier for the remaining 10-20%

    Anyone faced something similar?
