From her Monday Moring Message
January 12, 2009
I spoke Saturday Night to the Saturday Night Live group
in Fort Lauderdale. Great group!
I had an awesome surprise. Chris and Patsy Sigafoose
drove down from Sarasota. I've loved that man for close
to 30 years now. As many of you know he is facing some
health challenges. I should say facing up to them
because all he wanted to talk about was getting well and
getting back to work. After dealing in the medical arena
for a few months he has become crystal clear that any
encounter that we have with a patient is a blessing to
that patient. He told me that he is becoming a better
Chiropractor because he has seen for himself what the
medical profession is doing or not doing. After 30 years
he is still learning and is still grateful for
Chiropractic and still can't wait to get his hands on
people. He inspired me. Thanks Chris for inspiring me
and thanks Patsy for taking such good care of my friend
and for being you.
While preparing for my talk on Saturday night I took
time to reflect on this past year. I did a lot of
thinking this year. My thinking got me where I wanted to
go and got me out of a few jams too. I've always been
told that I have a pretty good head on my shoulders and
I've paired it up with my "gut" to come up with some
pretty sharp decisions in my life so I am not
discounting it's value but my educated mind alone has
certainly not made me that success that I am (on many
levels not just financially).
I've always considered myself an innate chiropractor.
Well what does that mean? I can only tell you what it
means to me. As in innate chiropractor I try to follow
the hunch. I work on developing the hunch. I develop the
hunch by listening to it and by meditating so that I can
hear it. I actually celebrate the fact that I don't have
to be the pilot, I can see myself as the co-pilot.
When I give the adjustment I don't have to do the
healing. A matter of fact as Jim Sigafoose says, "I
can't cure a patient, I can't even cure a ham." Healing
comes from within and the adjustment releases the
interference to this innate expression called the
subluxation. The adjustment connects man the physical
with man the spiritual by allowing the innate wisdom of
the body to heal the body. I'm not responsible for when
the patient doesn't get well as much as I am not
responsible for when they do get well. Of course I am
always rooting for them to get well but other factors do
exist. I am very responsible to the patient to locate
and correct their subluxations to the very best of my
ability and to show them the importance of this
function. That's what I do most of my waking hours. I
tell the story and deliver the goods.
I stay as clear as I possibly can so that I can connect
with the patient from my innate to their innate. This
connection is why they come to me and come back again. I
can't connect to them if I am bogged down in my educated
and if I am not totally focused on the moment. I have to
discipline myself to stay in tuned and to remember that
I serve man by serving God and the clearer that I stay
the better and instrument I can be to serve God's will
by serving my fellow man.
Now that is what I do in my office. I am an innate
chiropractor. I am also an innate driven person. I try
to love, serve and give out of my abundance. I also feel
like God's will for me is to act in love and to spread
love. I try to fall in love with everyone I meet and I
strive to show them love in all of my encounters with
them. This gives me that something extra about me.
People want to be around me not only because they can
feel my love and respect for them from me but also
because I try to make them feel good about themselves
when they are in my company. I try to bring out their
magnificence, not flaunt mine.. I try to make them feel
good about themselves when they are around me. That is
what makes them want to be around me and want what I
have. What I have is a logical, magnificent way to take
care of their health and a philosophy that they can use
to live their lives but it all starts and ends with my
ability to attract them into my world and want to know
what I know and what I want to share with them.
I live from inside out and not from outside in. I am in
innate chiropractor. My educated is necessary but needs
a rest. I need to do what I do best. I need to focus on
centering myself on what really, really makes me
special. I need to live the "hunch".
