    In his third video, Mindbody TMS Coach Monte Hueftle tells about
    The Powerful Distraction:

    He reminds us that the three steps in healing TMS symptoms are
    1. Think psychological, that the pain is from TMS repressed emotions and is not structural
    2. Stop medications and physical treatments.
    3. Resume normal physical activity.
    The most important of these is No. 1, believing 100 percent that the symptom(s) are from our repressed emotions, often going back to childhood.

    Many people can’t accept this and, instead, they remember something physical that may have first caused them pain. (In my case, it was back pain from lifting something heavy).

    Their fear of lifting, or walking, or sitting or standing can keep them from believing 100 percent that their pain is psychological. The unconscious mind creates this pain to distract us from its real cause, our hidden, repressed emotions which may be anger, guilt, feelings of rejection or inferiority, or our perfectionist personality or our need to be liked for everything by everyone all the time.

    The TMS distraction is, therefore, our subconscious trying to get us to avoid our inner feelings. Once we recognize this distraction and believe 100 percent in TMS causing our pain, it will go away.

    I want to suggest there is another way of looking at TMS distraction and that is do think about or do something you like and that makes you feel good. Distract your pain distraction and you will forget your pain.
