Investigate how you are doing emotionally since starting this program. How have you been handling uncovering emotions and issues? I've listed about 15 issues on the TMS List, but I'm not coming up with new items for my TMS list. I would like to know how to effectively discover repressed emotions if such emotions are hidden in the unconscious. I thought that just being aware of the TMS process eliminated the need to know specifically which emotions are being suppressed When you are in pain, what strategies do you use to focus your mind on positive thoughts? I rehearse the TMS Daily Reminders. I chant a mantra. I pray. I watch TV. And lastly, does deliberately trying to think positively prevent us from recognizing our suppressed emotions, which are the cause of TMS, and actually prevent us from overcoming TMS? ... or is it possible to do both at the same time? I believe I can do both. Both the negative function (recognizing the possibility of suppressed emotions) and the positive function (thinking positively) contribute to insight. Being aware of both the positive and the negative contributes to honestly knowing the whole picture. I don't want to delude myself by concentrating on the positive at the expense of not considering the negative.
