    Hi everyone, I am making some cue cards to have on hand when I feel fear ramping up. I want to write things like "I am safe", "TMS is temporary", "These sensations are just my brain trying to distract me".

    What are your best TMS short phase affirmations to get you out of ruts?

    Always and first “what emotion am I feeling” - this reaffirms that the pain is emotional

    I forgot one that my therapist recently gave me. When we are in the grip of fear, our inner dialogue is "Aaack! I don't want this!" See if you can STOP, breathe, and ask yourself (this is the cue card:) "What do I want?" Done with mindfulness and sincerity, this can completely change the inner dialogue and turn it into a visualization of a constructive outcome.
