Yes I think it can work. The mind is an incredibly powerful organ. Many people have healed themselves using the power of their will.
Hi everyone, I have experienced this as well. I definitely think we are super aware of our bodies and the sensations we feel. We can experience all sorts of uncomfortable symptoms for as long as we continue focusing our attention on them. It's hard to distract our mind when it's in a constant state of fear but if we do not attempt to free ourselves from these demons (anxiety) then we can feel all sorts of disturbing sensations. Hope you feel better soon.
