I first learned about Dr. Sarno about 7 years ago, read The Divided Mind about 5 years ago. I had some success, but wasn't very passionate about sticking with it. Now I am making it my goal and passion to stick with it to heal and am in LOVE with the method (much more enjoyable than taking meds). I feel like it took me/my brain/subconscious to finally "get" TMS and to believe in it, as if that inner cog has finally clicked into place and now I'm on the right path. I'd grimace at those who were successful, call them overly optimistic, be jealous of their healing. Now I want to be one of them! Have you had similar experience, where it's taken multiple tries for it all to feel right and sink in? Also, how can we support those who desperately WANT to heal through the TMS work, but maybe they're not to the point yet where their subconscious mind will allow it? Those who may still be in denial that their whole brain believes? Those who argue, fight back, don't want to be optimistic? Or CAN you assist them at that point and maybe they need to take some more time to get where they need to be ready to dive into the full process?
