THE ROLE THE BRAIN PLAYS IN PAIN

    This video from Dr Howard Schubiner, explains the
    psycho-physiological aspects of how the brain works to create pain:




    The brain has two parts, the conscious and the unconscious part, and
    95 percent of our thoughts and feelings are in the unconscious part.
    When we feel something in our conscious mind, it’s just the tip of the
    iceberg of the underlying emotional feelings that exist in the
    unconscious mind.

    Dr. Schubiner says, as Dr. John Sarno writes in his books, our physical pain and
    anxieties often go back to childhood when we were upset by someone or something.
    These traumas were repressed by our “Inner child.” Frequently, emotional hurts
    experienced as a child get re-created in adulthood.

    Schubiner cites the example of a woman patient who had severe headaches.
    She recalled that her father had yelled at her often when she was a child,
    and now her boss did the same.

    Personality traits such as perfectionism and “goodism,” wanting to be liked by
    Everyone, can conflict with the real world, the way other people are and their
    demands on us. We can try to be “too good” and expect too much of ourselves
    which creates tension in our unconscious mind that shows up in our body by
    giving us pain.

    Schubiner says many more women than men get Fibromyalgia and migraine
    headaches because of their stronger “goodism” character traits. They simply
    care more than most men.

    The way to become healed of the pain is through hope and positive expectations
    that you can get better. It is by following TMS Mindbody practices, working in
    the mind through writing about our childhood traumas, meditating on resolving
    them through awareness and acceptance of TMS, self-affirmations, and other

    TMS healing techniques. These are to be found in the TMSWiki.org forums
    and book about TMS.

    In my own life, I recall that my mother suffered frequent migraine headaches.
    I know now through TMS knowledge that they came from her own TMS
    repressed emotions that probably went back to her childhood in which there
    was a lot of insecurity when her father died and left my mother and her two
    older sisters and two younger brothers to live in poverty in the early 1900s.

    Money worries that developed in my mother’s “Inner Child” were triggered
    during her marriage and raising me and my older brother and sister during
    the 1930s Great Depression.

    These are the psycho-physiological reasons for the pain our unconscious mind
    gives us, until we discover the traumas of our “Inner Child” and learn how to
    adjust ourselves to the pain they give us today.
