Book cover for "Garden Your Mind"

4 Steps that Work for Relief

  • Garden will teach you an easy and effective system of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Here are four steps to cure either psychological or physical pain.

4 Steps

  1. Apologize directly to the pain.
  2. Accept the pain as it is.
  3. Encourage the pain that there are better ways to feel.
  4. Remember better ways to feel in place of that pain.

Some Suggestions

  • You must repeat the 4 steps often if they are to work.
  • You can repeat the 4 steps in any order and at any time.
  • You can just use the steps that you remember.
  • Experiment using the 4 steps with an upset spouse or child.
  • Above all, you must learn to accept the pain, because it is “not-ing” that keeps the pain alive. For more on “not-ing”, discover Not.
  • Many therapies include one or more of these four steps; therefore, you might be able to include some of these steps as part of something you already know.
  • If you are under the care of any professional, then ask them before starting this new practice.
  • This same process can be done more completely in six steps.
