I met Michael Thurman and his partner at the time socially, at a MEETUP Group. We met some and talked over coffee. They invited me over for Thanksgiving. I always bring home made pecan pies.
After a great meal experience we all relaxed and chatted as their miniature pig, bird, cat, and dog found attention. The cute hyper billy goats were outside in the pen. A property line was either the Guadalupe or Colorado river.
He told me about being in pain his entire life. We talked and I told him about training his mind to handle pain in order to eliminate it. After all he had been cut, medicated and diagnosed he did not really believe what I was saying would work.
I gave testimonials and my own experiences and answered his questions.
He has a spinal implant that intercepts the pain signals going to his brain with a control knob implanted under his skin where he can adjust the level. You are not in pain if that chemical signal does not reach the brain.
As I was getting ready to go, he told me he was taking morphine twice a day and taking several Oxycontin pills daily. I do not know how he functioned so well on his small farm and restoring furniture business, some for Hollywood sets. Beautiful work.
I offered him four phone sessions if he wanted to control his pain with his mind.
Michael was eager to get out from under the system that took an implanted device and two toxic medications to maybe get his pain under control.
The only side effect of managing your pain through directed thought is increased self-mastery.
Overview of the sessions with him
I had emailed him a manual. I taught him how pain travels in the body, gets amplified by our thoughts and stress level, and the relaxation response. Also, pain is not continuous; it is in pulses of signals sent from the body to the brain where it is registered as pain. It is a series of pulses with a pause in between pulses. An Eastern technique is to identify, then expand the pauses. I like this PHD technique since the pain is gone quickly.
Then, I prepared him for the upcoming mind training to relax mind, body, and energy; the Empowering Whole Relax, i.e. The Wisdom Method.
I guided him through this forty-minute thought-focusing cycle to relax his body, mind, and inner energies and enter into the optimal brain level for releasing pain while reprogramming the brain neurons to make changes for this particular skill to become natural.
He received the 2 audio files to practice and deepen the mental program until the next session.
Michael reported that he turned off the neuro-stimulator implant after our first session. Yea! Michael is ahead of the game. Good.
We discussed his pain level which was already reduced. Then into more detail of the causes for his pain. From that, I told him some about visualizing those areas of the body to heal and how to do that.
PHD – Pain Headache Discomfort Shift
As with all these mind smart skills, I first explain what we are going to do to his logical mind. This is educational and to make sure it goes along with the new stuff for the brain.
Then I helped him upgrade his brain with this new Smart Skill. I invited him to sit comfortably then guided him into the optimal brain upgrade mode using his breath and mental focus. As I am speaking the new Smart Skill to him, the brain’s neural pathways begin to alter representing the new skill is programmed and usable.
Through this PHD Smart Skill, Pain, Headache, Discomfort shift into ease and comfort. This is a short, less than 5 minutes, process to eliminate the pain. As you continue to use it, the process becomes quicker.
We discussed the optimal way to use this PHD quick pain relief technique. I gave him some other pointers and we ended the session.
He went to the South Austin pain clinic for his regular appointment.
His doctor and PA were surprised at the decrease in his pain level.
His pain doctor was thrown off guard when Michael said he wanted to start reducing the morphine and other meds. The doctor and PA asked him how he could do that.
Michael told them that he is working with a man (me) who is teaching him how to direct his thoughts to eliminate his pain. The Physician Assistant told Michael I am getting better results than their own trained pain coaches. (I wish they want to learn what I am doing?) I encouraged him to give them all my contact information. He did.
He reports he has been out of pain for a while. When a spasm starts, he stops it right away with the PHD quick pain relief technique. His morphine intake is reduced and he has only taken 3-4 Oxycontin pills in the last month when he used to take more than that daily. I reinforced one of the techniques and we discussed how he will use this moving forward.
This was a wrap-up session for questions and tips. I did take him through a process of visualizing the healing and the nerve growth speeding up through his scar tissues.
People are often amazed at the results of a trained mind with useful Mind Smart Skills. It is so innate that I cannot fully explain it. Each person realizes all this once they experience it.
Great News: Lifespan increases & Brain component comes alive
He had a blood test that measures lifespan based on the medicine a person is taking. Great result!
His lifespan had increased from taking less medicinal toxicity.
AND something I did not know: his pituitary gland had been declared dead by doctors. NOW it is alive and working. Awesome results.
I also gave him specific pointers to speed up the regrowth of nerves through scar tissue where he had numbness. Lots of cutting on his body.
More than a year after working with him, he was in a bad accident. EMS had to cut him out of his truck. The EMTs told him that he should not have been able to walk out of that. He had sat in his car and used the Empowering Whole Relax and the pain elimination techniques. Thus, he was able to walk out fine.
This is so useful and better than all those drugs and their side effects.
Note: I am sure there may be certain situations where the medications are needed. When I work with someone with an illness I have them inform their primary care provider.
So far, all students and clients have successfully used this PHD pain relief Smart Skill.
A pill or mental focus; whichever works.
You carry it with you, in your brain’s software, ready to use it at a moment’s notice, when needed. And the side effects include: self-management and shifting into pain and peace in mind and body quickly on-cue along with a true sense of freedom in life. Plus you will use this for the rest of your life.
The body heals itself in the right conscious environment
Later there was better news.
Within a year after we stopped sessions he was totally off all pain meds and the implant has remained turned off. He saves dollars and is bolstering his sense of well-being in life and his control over his own thoughts.
Seeking medical school, professionals
I write this in all caps: I KNOW THERE ARE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS INTERESTED IN HELPING PATIENTS BY EMPOWERING THE INNATE ABILITIES OF THE BODY TO HEAL. IT JUST TAKES TRAINING. CONTACT ME!
Truly, as an engineer, I have taken this knowledge and direct experience and made it usable. Let’s empower the patient and bring forth their own innate healing abilities.
Remember that Michael and I did this over the phone.
Michael gave me explicit permission to use his name in any way that would get the word out. Some of his Facebook posts are below.
Letter sent to a pain management clinic in South Austin
I mailed a letter to the pain clinic, directly to his pain doctor and PA. I asked to coordinate my notes with his doctor visits to produce a report that could be used. I offered to show them how it is trainable with repeatable results. Give me a white board and marker, I can show it to anyone.
I heard nothing. You draw your own conclusions.
The rest of this post are Michael’s Facebook posts talking about his use of this PHD pain relief technique.
Do you know someone who can benefit? You?
I enjoy working with a client, a class, when I witness how they have gained more self-mastery.
Army class experience
There are so many testimonials. I have to share this and will make it short. I had the fortune to train some Fort Hood Army folks in a wellness center a student of mine had opened up. Day one, two of the things they learned were the foundational Empowering Whole Relaxation and the PHD pain relief techniques.
Sunday morning, before the second day of class, I am watching Lionel shifting in his chair and looking around. I asked him what’s going on? He said he has had back pain for years and it was gone. I joked and said: well, stopping looking for it; what a teacher told me in my twenties. Then, I congratulated him. As everyone was sitting down, they commented their pains were also gone. Amazing how many people in the Army carry pain.
That is the first time that happened without doing the technique. It was in the air, it seems…where it worked for the collective of folks who were learning these sets of Smart Skills as they walked into the room. An enlivening energy was definitely present.
