Autosuggestion a. Emile Coue’; French pharmacist 1857-1926. He is famous for coining the term “Every day in every way, I’m getting better and better.” b. He also states “I have never cured anyone in my life. All I do is show people how they can cure themselves.” c. The Coué method centers on a routine repetition of this particular expression according to a specified ritual, in a given physical state, and in the absence of any sort of allied mental imagery, at the beginning and at the end of each day. d. Coué thus developed a method which relied on the belief that any idea exclusively occupying the mind turns into reality,[ e. Affirmations and repetitive mantras. 2. Autogenic a. Developed by German psychiatrist Joannes Heinrich Shultz. b. A desensitization-relaxation technique c. Autogenic training is based on 3 main principles:[5] • Reduction of afferent stimulation (both exteroceptive and proprioceptive) • Mental repetition of verbal formulae • Passive concentration d. My hands are warm and heavy. e. After completing the exercise, ask yourself “Did I notice any change?” f. Can be very effective for pain relief 3. Progressive Muscle Relaxation 4. Image Streaming (creativity) a. When you read a novel, for instance, wouldn’t you want to immerse yourself into the story –as if you’re part of it? Like translating a one-dimensional universe into palpable landscapes and lifelike characters? b. Image streaming is an exercise where you observe your mental images and movies. While you explore the movies of your mind, you describe them out loud in maximum detail. c. Image streaming helps you to empower your visualisation skills while it improves your verbal fluency, and enables you to access your subconscious mind for problem-solving. 5. Mindfulness a. Living in the present b. Mindfulness is the practice of purposely bringing one’s attention in the present moment without judgment, a skill one develops through meditation or other training. Mindfulness derives from sati, a significant element of Buddhist traditions, and based on Zen, c. Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. Whenever you bring awareness to what you’re directly experiencing via your senses, or to your state of mind via your thoughts and emotions, you’re being mindful. And there’s growing research showing that when you train your brain to be mindful, you’re actually remodeling the physical structure of your brain. 6.
