    Oh most definitely yes!  The mind is EXTREMELEY powerful! Unfortunately anxiety causes us to use it in a negative way. If only we could harness the power for good! Whichever part you are concentrating on keep telling yourself all is well.  Use emotive language. For example ........my stomach is working wonderfully well....just as nature intended! What a fantastic job my stomach is doing in keeping me healthy. I hope you get the gist. It's based on self hypnosis. E.

    i never knew the mind could be so powerful until i got anxiety.

    it can be a nasty little bugger and convince you of all kind of things.

    then you start wondering is this pain for real or is it just my anxiety?
