What is in Front of Your Nose

Tonight I was reading David R. Hawkins, MD, Phd, Dialogues on Consciousness and Spirituality and in his opening comments he said,

“What we are talking about today is consciousness. We are going to recontextualize the entire human experience throughout all of history, from many and all viewpoints simultaneously—recontextualize science, epistemology, knowledge, ontology, so that will take us an hour. The nice thing about this lecture is that you don’t have to think. What we will explain is what you already know, and all you need is somebody to define it. Once it is defined, you will realize that it is obvious. That is what makes it difficult, because to explain the obvious and the simple is excruciatingly difficult. Complex is no problem at all. To explain what is obvious and in front of your nose is sort of like a Zen Koan. I mean, it is extremely difficult. It takes many years of concentration, and finally you get what is in front of your nose….”

This is parallel to what I am talking about, the understanding that the essence of LIFE  is the key to your being alive… To use your thoughts to tap into the experience of knowing and sensing this presence that is unobservable, untouchable and basically under your nose is challenging. To get a handle on how simple it is to be with it and walk with it in your everyday moment to moment time line… To use your mind, imagination (what a gift that is) to practice being aware of this third part that makes up the Whole YOU, a Human Being. Remember, to heal means to make one Whole which means to be MIND, BODY and LIFE (Spirit/Soul) unified and working together. Until we practice being or unifying all three with each breath, we are walking around as Human Doings . A head with a body and with some connection to LIFE. Tuning in to the third part, LIFE, assists you in seeing LIFE in others…and it is the most awesome energy on Earth…

Remember, when my mother would ask me “how my life is”, I would answer, “my LIFE is awesome all the time, my living experience can be challenging at times.”

Before an Adjustment

Something Very Simple

There is something very simple, very subtle.
It can’t be seen, but we know it is there.
It is described by a word that is taken for granted.
And yet, without this we are not able to experience living.
We operate our bodies in our daily lives
Through our thinking and
We pay no attention to this mysterious subtle energy.
It is talked about and explained by using other words,
Like spirit or soul, and yet,
This word is what carries us forward from
Conception to death…
It is time to walk in connection with LIFE
Come learn the ins and outs of LIFE
And experience what healing is all about!!!

Understanding My Passion For Chiropractic

Enjoy this PowerPoint presentation and share this with your loved ones. This will enhance your understanding of why I am so passionate about helping you and all who wish to live a more healthy life.

Understanding the Premise of Chiropractic

Knowing that your nervous system actually communicates with all the cells of your body.

Knowing that there is a wisdom that animates, motivates and directs your existence since your conception.

Knowing that this intelligence must communicate through what has been determined to be your nervous system.

Knowing that any disruption in this communication whether small, subluxation, or extreme, severed nerves, causes less connection or no connection of this intelligence to the cells of the living organism and thereby lessened health or death.

With this understanding the benefits of the Chiropractic adjustment can be said to be paramount to any other type of therapy short of initially saving ones life as a result of extreme trauma.

The basic premise of the Chiropractic Adjustment is to remove any interference (subluxation) in/of the transmission of wisdom (life force) to the cells of the body (density). By removing this interference, the natural process of healing and restoration of function can be attained to the best result possible by allowing the impulse of life force to be received by the tissues of the body.

Benefits of Chiropractic:

  •  Restoration of communication between the brain and cells of your body (motor nerves).

  •  Restoration of communication between cells of your body and the brain (sensory nerves).

  •  Restoration of joint mechanics allowing for an increase in ROM.

  •  Restoration of normal muscle tension to allow the joint to function.
    -release of muscle spasms that result from guarding injured joints.
    -release of chemicals trapped by muscles that are guarding joints.
    -abnormal muscle contraction results in osteo-arthritic changes to the joint (arthritis).

  •  Restoration of physiology as a result of a return of normal nerve impulse.
    -(to include; heart rate, digestion, respiration, immune   function, balance, etc.)
     

    Merilee and Dr.

    I am a diagnostician not of names for disease but for locating where and what is causing your lack of ease or disease…

    The results you experience are a result of a combination of who and what I do and who you are and what you could be… 

       I don’t treat conditions. I locate where patients are disconnected (subluxated)and assist them in reconnecting by listening to the cells (validation)through touch, Network Spinal Analysis, Cranial, visceral work and adjusting as needed. I teach patients to listen/reconnect to their bodies and understand “LIFE”. Call now. 

Honoring YOU

If you are so inclined to attend Wednesday Nights Spiritual Healing, then I will offer to all that attend a complimentary evaluation for you to hear what your body is telling you before it decides to leave you and ask for a divorce.

Terms:  ME, MYSELF, I

Me is your thoughts, chatter, ego, etc.

Myself is your body/form

I is the essence of LIFE/GOD/MIRACLE/LIFE FORCE/TRUTH, etc…

Simply put, “you” (the ME) are in relationship with your body/form (the MYSELF). When “you”  (the ME) disregards the body/form (the Myself), the body/form sends signals of help me (symptoms) and over time because we all turn an deaf ear to the sore spots, the body atrophies. This means it disconnects from the “I” or the LIFE FORCE,CHI/LOVE, etc. This means your body/form has less vitality. Like wilted lettuce. The Aging you see all around you is natural. And yet, a lot of the aging results from a disconnection from your LIFE FORCE. 

When we keep our cells connected to the LIFE FORCE (the “YOU”) the vitality of the form seems to know how to live in a higher state of JOY. Couple that with keeping the connection with proper joint/muscle function and you have a person with “pep in his step and a smile all the while” (Foster Hibbard, 1981).

Oh Beautiful

 

Wouldn’t it be correct to say that we all would really like to stay vital and healthy? You know, be able to run and play and think clearly to completion. 

Check it out….What you put into it is what you get out of it…

Dental Decay

Years ago, while having the old amalgam fillings removed at the Dental office, I noticed a quote in the restroom on the wall. It read, “Go ahead, ignore your teeth. Maybe they will go away.” Pretty straight forward and to the point, eh?

Well, from observing the Xrays of patients over 33 years, coming in with a complaint of some sort of pain, invariably, they all present with the same decay to their structure as decay to teeth. Difference is spinal decay is not from bacteria/plaque but from insidious changes in joint function that can not be flossed, brushed or whitened.

Spinal decay comes about from tensions and changes in normal joint motion attributed to many factors. The simple understanding is how we react to Physical Trauma, Emotional Trauma and Chemical trauma (even foods we eat). The other part of this equation is we actually learn or hold onto our experiences so we can possibly protect ourselves better next time. Most of  the memories, held as synaptic or facilitated neural pathways, are the ones other than LOVE. These held tensions, just in case needed for a quick response to danger, actually diminish the transmission of our normal essence of daily living. Over time, because of diminished transmission, this leads to lessened function of our tissues   (joint, muscle, organ, etc.)

Now, if we could reset to the Point Of Peace between our heads hitting the pillow and when we arise in the AM with the added flavor of stretching, exercise and adding more LOVE to our lives, maybe we would not need to be adjusted. Only when we experience a trauma of some kind and need to have our joints returned to normal biomechanical function.

Last comment: When you get your teeth drilled and filled you are usually seen a few times and job done. When you wait until you are in pain and your spine has what is called Degenerative Joint Disease or Osteoarthritis, it is not a simple matter of one or two adjustments and all is well. 

In order to maintain any structure, someone needs to put in the time and knowledge on just what is needed. Everything has a maintenance schedule. Using a wire coat hanger to hold your muffler on isn’t correcting the problem. 

Help me help you and others in enjoying the quality of LIFE you presently have. Bring in your family and friends for periodic check ups and do the right thing.

Nature’s Way

It is nature’s way to break structure down to its elements. It is through our consciousness to find ways to maintain structure(s) to diminish nature’s way. Like the three little Pigs, each built a house out of different materials with the need for shelter (from the elements, and a wolf). Each of us by understanding can take knowledge and thereby be responsible to build our house (body) with the proper materials so it can enjoy LIFE in a body.

Luke 12:32: 
“It is our Father’s great pleasure ~ it brings God “Joy” ~ to grant US the living experience of Heaven”.

Most of us began with the miracle of LIFE and a form most amazing, the body. As time goes by, we will succomb to nature’s way. In 1895, someone (Daniel David Palmer) put together an Art, Science and Philosophy to work with nature and our gifts as humans to assist in the maintenance of our bodies by keeping the Miracle of LIFE connected to the body. Likened to a hose bringing water to the garden, the nerves bring Life Force (LIFE) to the cells of the body. Actions of Daily living can result in tensions that over time cause a lessening of the transmission of the Life Force reaching the cells of the body. Chiropractic is one of the gifts given to us, that is understood as an Art, to  remove the cause of interference (subluxation) that diminishes  the ability of Life Force to reach and nourish/motivate and animate our form.

Why is it so hard to understand how simple it really is? 

Why is it that Chiropractic is not a household word and everyone brings their family members in for at least a check up just like the Dental check ups.

Your spine is no different as far as decay as the teeth in your mouth. You can live (somewhat) without teeth and yet can you live without your vertebrae?

The Point of Peace

The Point of Peace. Where is it and what does it mean?

Within all creation there is a Point of Peace.

What is the Point of Peace?

Can you imagine the point in time, when the two cells that made you found each other and united? After the long distance they had to travel and through all the effort needed to find each other, they were elated and relieved to have this part of the journey complete. This is the”Moment of Awe”(or Ahh).

However, even though feeling a sense of Awe, they knew they needed something else, something way more important. They knew they could not complete the journey without the “Essence of YOU”.

They only had so much Life Force left that was given to them by their hosts and they knew time was of the essence. So, they called out for and asked (for they knew “ask and you shall receive”) for their partner in “LIFE”.

The call was heard by God and God responded by sending “YOU”, a small piece of God to join in the journey. When YOU arrived and the union was made, a voice was heard to say, “Be Still Now and Know That I Am God”.

This moment in time, when the “two cells now one” and the “YOU” (spirit, Love, Chi) united, has become known as “The Point Of Peace”.

At this point in time in your life, an intense sense of YES took place.

From this point forward, the events of your life over coated this ever present moment of ecstacy.

Whenever possible, use your imagination and remember the Point of Peace. That point in time filled with joy and love as your two cells incorporated the presence of “YOU”. The point in time of your creation (a miracle).

The Point of Peace is ever present within you and it is yours to remember and discover where you might find it within you NOW.

This is the moment life began for you and no one can take that awareness of “YOU” away from you. Simply remember…

 

Believe or Understand?

 I have often heard people say the following in a conversation- “I don’t believe in it”. Upon further questioning, I would find out they had limited information and with more information, a persons disbelief changes to an understanding…

Most functions of the body are taken for granted. When one takes the time to understand how anything works, then one becomes responsible. When we say we don’t believe in it, we are saying I don’t want to take the time to understand it and therefore be responsible for the results from my actions. Understanding the Kreb’s Cycle is not what I am saying you have to do. Simply start listening and questioning and reach as far as you can on your journey to be fully connected to LIFE (Understanding just what LIFE is, God, that feeling of connectedness and Love).
