    I wonder which is the role the famous book YOUR ERRONEOUS ZONES
    by Wayne Dyer could play in overcoming TMS issues

    I've heard of him and that book, nothing more. However I've always thought that any resource which allows us to get know ourselves with honesty, and to understand and accept our relationships in this world, is of value. The thing about humans is that wildly different approaches speak to wildly different folks. Aka, "whatever works!"

    There were a lot of great personal and professional development speakers from the mid 1980s!
    I wasn't keen on Wayne Dyer, but I surely wore out my cassette tapes from Brian Tracy's Psychology of Achievement from listening to every tape so many times. I think I must have memorized nearly all of it as I still find myself repeating phrases from it 35+ years later.

    i love wayne dyer. he was my entree into the world of new age self help realization material. i don’t know if i would have accepted sarno’s ideas so easily if i hadn’t already been primed by reading Dyer’s early works.

    I hear you on that. Having some foundation and understanding of various related concepts helps you get to that lightbulb "aha!" moment.

    Me too - in my case it was doctors who were willing to say "there's nothing wrong with you except too much anxiety" and encouraging me to find ways to de-stress. I also always experienced relief from the symptom-of-the-moment upon hearing this, which also influenced my outlook, and led early on to taking responsibility for my health, and developing a strong belief in self-healing. Dr Sarno added the final essential pieces to the puzzle.

    Same here, Jan. I always found that a kind doctor telling you that there is nothing wrong with you does wonders.
    A few years back when I was not able to shake a virus I had a doctor said to me, "I think you feel, worse than you are." That really hit the nail on the head for me. He wasn't diminishing the fact that I did in fact feel bad, but he was also letting me know that physically speaking there was nothing acutely dangerous causing it.
