So I am new to this and havn't been doing it very long, but I recently had an absolutely wonderful experience. I was feeling very very low, like the colour had faded out of the world, classic depression. And I sat down and journaled. I wouldn't even call it journaling, all I did was write out the same sentence (a fact within my life that I find hard to accept) over and over. And the most amazing thing happened- I could feel my mood improving in real time as I did it- and after ~10 mins I felt just amazing, like a different person. It was like a dial had been turned and the symptoms were 100% gone. It was UNREAL. So I can happily say that I am one of those people who no longer needs to rely on faith to trust that this will work, I KNOW that for me at least it does. I still have bigger fish to fry so my journey has only just begun, but I thought it would be nice for others to hear this. Especially since I do not have pain and have never had chronic pain- it isn't just for pain that this can work! Btw I have found this series very very helpful Thanks to 'Mrs Dependable' for pointing it out to me!
