Pain is always a feeling of pain

You cannot measure pain as you can measure for instance your body temperature. Pain is always an emotional feeling of pain. This makes pain not less real, but always connected to mental factors. This means to you in the first place that you carry inside yourself a powerful instrument with which you can influence your pain. It is scientifically proven that even the most powerful painkillers such as morphine act for 50 percent through the suggestion that they work. This is the so-called ‘placebo-effect’;

Suggestion in an open and direct manner

With the AURELIS-method, you use that same principle, but in a thoroughly open and direct way. In other words: you use yourself for what you are worth, and that is a whole lot. AURELIS is clearly not a usual pain therapy. In an appropriate way and totally from within yourself it lets you evolve to a richer person to which the (mainly chronic) pain is needed in a far less pronounced degree. The result is not only that you feel less pain, but that within yourself you can progress very much towards a more satisfying life without this chronic pain. This is the only ‘side effect’ of AURELIS. One caution: do not let the diminishment of your pain lead you towards stopping any other therapy without the advice of a physician.
Autosuggestion sessions
