Power of Creativity

Earl Hits a High NoteImagination is not the same as creativity. Creativity takes the process of imagination to another level. My definition of creativity is “the process of having original ideas that have value.” Imagination can be entirely internal. You could be imaginative all day long without anyone noticing. But you would never say that someone was creative if that person never did something. To be creative you actually have to do something. It involves putting your imagination to work to make something new, to come up with new solutions to problems, even to think of new problems or questions.

Life, Death, Health and Disease

Where there is life there is action. Where there is action, known as function in the body, there is health. When the functions of the body deteriorate, there is disease. Death is caused by disease or an absence of life. Life can only correct the functions of the body with outside help. The chiropractor examines the body to isolate areas that are not functioning properly and then by way of adjustment, restores the function and allows life to flow freely through the body, thereby restoring health. A bone can be out of place putting pressure on a nerve limiting its ability to function. This state persisting causes malfunction. Then a disease process starts and the last thing to show up are the symptoms. A patient usually goes to a chiropractor after they have experienced symptoms. This means the injury that caused the bone to move out of place could have been years earlier. A thorough consultation and examination by a chiropractor will discover those moments where your body was injured causing the bone to put pressure on a nerve.

Of course it would be faster and easier if the patient would go to a chiropractor on a regular basis for checkups before they experience symptoms.

Innate Speaks

WE CHIROPRACTORS work with the subtle substance of the soul. We release the prisoned impulse, the tiny rivulet of force that emanates from the mind and flows over the nerves to the cells and stirs them into life.

We deal with the magic power that transforms common food into living, loving, thinking clay; that robes the earth with beauty, and hues and scents the flowers with the glory of the air.

In the dim, dark, distant long ago, when the sun first bowed to the morning star, this power spoke and there was life; it quickened the slime of the sea and the dust of the earth and drove the cell to union with its fellows in countless living forms.

Through eons of time it finned the fish and winged the bird and fanged the beast.

Endlessly it worked, evolving its forms until it produced the crowning glory of them all.

With tireless energy it blows the bubble of each individual life and then silently, relentlessly dissolves the form, and absorbs the spirit into itself again.

And yet you ask, “Can Chiropractic cure appendicitis or the ‘flu’?”

Have you more faith in a knife or a spoonful of medicine than in the Innate power that animates the internal living world ?

What is life force?

B.J. Palmer Quote :
Living, usually buried, in us is an Innate Intelligence. If we could open those flood gates and let Innate flow, we would be as good and as great as it, itself. Living in all of us is our innate selves. Innate is God in human beings. Innate is good in human beings. Innate is life in human beings. Innate is health in human beings. Innate is sane in human beings. Let Innate flow in and through us and we can accomplish the great wonders.”

The Truth about the Power that Heals the Body

The Truth

“We Chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul.  We release
the prisoned impulse, the tiny rivulet of force, that emanates from the
mind and flows over the nerves to the cells and stirs them into life.  We
deal with the magic power that transforms a common food into living,
loving, thinking clay; that robes the earth with beauty, and hues and
scents the flowers with the glory of the air.

In the dim, dark, distant long ago, when the sun first bowed to the
morning star, this power spoke and there was life; it quickened the slime
of the sea and the dust of the earth and drove the cell to union with its
fellows in countless living forms.  Through aeons of time it finned the fish
and winged the bird and fanged the beast.  Endlessly it worked, evolving
its form until it produced the crowning glory of them all.  With tireless
energy it blows the bubble of each individual life and then silently,
relentlessly dissolves the form, and absorbs the spirit into itself again.

And yet you ask, “Can Chiropractic cure appendicitis or the flu?”  Have
you more faith in a knife or a spoonful of medicine than in the power that
animates the living world?

                                     –B.J. Palmer, D.C., Ph.C.

universeIn my last article I quoted the definition of Innate Intelligence. B.J. Palmer also expressed the following description of Innate Intelligence in his book “The Science of Chiropractic,” 1906. This material is not for you to educate your patients with but for you to get a full understanding of the power that you are releasing by adjusting the skeletal frame of the human body:

“Man is a dual entity. He is composed of the mortal and immortal—the everlasting—that which always existed, and always will.”

“The Innate Intelligence, known by the names, soul, spirit, nature, instinct, subconscious mind and intuition, has the duplicate senses in Educated Intelligence.”

 “Innate has its own consciousness; it is not dependent upon the body for its existence, any more than we are on the house that we live in; its immortality, its external existence, does not rely upon the life of the body it inhabits. It is invincible, cannot be overcome by material changes. It is invulnerable, and not subject to wounds or injuries.”

“Innate is not the mind, the thinking quality with which we are familiar. The functions of the brain, upon which the mind depends for outward expressions, are like other functions, under the control of Innate. It is behind thot and expresses itself by that means. It can set aside for consideration, the sensations, emotions, passions, desires, or any other mental phenomena, or physiological functions, and thereby receive educational impressions through it.”

“Innate is self-existent, remains unchanged, is not a part of mental or physical manifestation; but instead controls these, when not hindered by diseased conditions, caused by displacements of the skeletal frame.”

“The life, of which we are acquainted, is of the physical which exists as long as Innate occupies the body. To be able to perform the functions of the body, is to live.”

“Disease consists in deranged functions. Functions may become so extremely abnormal, that Innate cannot maintain control, making the body untenable. The dissolution, we call death.”

I’ve also taken parts of a chapter in a book by Ralph O’Day entitled “Real I Zation” dated 1943 because he gives a good description of the power that you are releasing during an adjustment of a patient. I’ve edited these paragraphs so they align with what B.J. Palmer has stated above.

“Science defines energy as an inherent capacity for work, a potential force. It says that force is that same energy in action; or the activity of energy. It further states that power is force applied to objects with the purpose of moving or changing them. Scientists differentiate the ideas of energy, force and power, and in this fine distinction, we find a clue to the understanding of Innate Intelligence. What science calls the one, source of universal energy, we simply call in the individual, Innate Intelligence.”

“But energy is not force, unless, or until, it is set into motion. It is potential, at rest, until released. Waterfall, wind, gravitation, and earthquake, are examples of force, which is energy in action. Force is destructive, unless controlled and directed by intelligence. When the force of moving water, or of electricity, is controlled and directed by engineers, it becomes power. Power is simply applied or directed force.”

“Electricity will rush over any wire available, toasting a piece of bread for your pleasure, or electrocuting you with equal abandon. When intelligence and will are used in connection with force, it is directed into constructive and helpful channels. When no understanding, no will-power, no faith, nor other faulty guides force, it is blind and destructive. That is because it is impersonal. Sunshine and rain fall equally “on the just and the unjust.” Gravitation, electricity or water operates unfailingly to bless or to destroy either the saint or the sinner.”

“Innate Intelligence is a potential energy source; but energy must be set free, to work. Then it is force, which may be either constructive or destructive. Force either builds up or tears down—more often tears down. But when the Chiropractor who understands the activity of Innate Intelligence, and releases it by removing nerve interference, that force becomes “the power to heal.”

“What power causes the suns and planets to mover in their orbits? Spirit, the only power there is. What power lifts your little finger? Spirit, the only power there is. What force sweeps through the forest, leaving only charred ashes behind? Spirit, of course, for that is the only force. But, in that case, it was not directed by intelligent will to a constructive end.”

“What force can be blocked within the body resulting in the destruction of the cells and tissues? Why Spirit, of course, for that is the only force there is. But, in that case, it is not directed by will or understanding, or even faith. When you know that the same force directing the course of all the stars in the heavens is the force that moves the blood through your body; digests your food; breathes in your lungs; and that it can be directed, controlled, and made to work perfectly, you are coming near to the truth.”

“Innate Intelligence, the totality of energy, force, and power, manifests itself in many ways. It builds up and it tears down, to prepare for new and better forms. That is why the whole universe is constantly changing. Everything is in a state of flux. Everything is becoming something new and better. This constant change is always toward improvement. It is controlled, or can be controlled, by Innate Intelligence; therefore it is not to be feared when this is understood.”

“We can intelligently direct the power of Spirit to every part of our bodies, and to every condition in our affairs, just as we direct water through pipes, or electric power through wires. We can do this when we understand the nature of Spirit as the Dynamic of the universe.”

“Here we begin to get a clue to the working of Spirit or Innate Intelligence in healing the human body. The density of bodies is in direct ratio to their vibration rate, the faster the vibration rate, the less dense the body, because the space is greater between the electrons composing it. When a man is sick or unhappy he says he is feeling ‘low’, which is fact, for his body vibration is slow, and his density and weight are increased. You even hear folks complain of ‘heaviness’, which again is true for them at the time. The principle has been explained by Professor Einstein, who claims that a fast moving object, a bullet, for example, weighs less when in motion than when at rest. This body, which we have thought to be a dense, physical object, may be just that, under certain conditions, when the atoms making it up are moving slowly.”

“Take heart. Have no fear. All things and conditions in your environment are of much lower vibration than you. You can cut through them when you know that all the powerful machinery of the universe is back of you; that you are here for the special purpose of handling the situations confronting you; and that you have been tempered and sharpened to the highest degree in order to do the job.”

So deliver your adjustments to your patients and speed up their vibrations. Lift up their awareness so they can laugh and buzz right through every condition they meet. You can not fail as a Chiropractor, when you realize you are releasing a universal power in the human body called Innate Intelligence.

Discovering Your Purpose

Woman - reachingIf Life Coaching is a method of directing, instructing and training a person or group of people, with the aim to achieve some goal or develop specific skills, it really means that the coach is taking responsibility for the development of the intelligence level of the person or people he is coaching.

The real skill in Life Coaching is to ask questions of the person I’m coaching that directs them to the realization they need to have in order for them to change their mind, give up old ideas or to create an entirely new future.

Life changes when you change your mind. Oftentimes the person receiving the Life Coaching doesn’t know the barriers they have created for themselves. They believe what they’re doing is correct even when the results of what they are doing indicate that it is not going to lead them to succeed at the goal they set for themselves.

My father worked at the same steel company for twenty-five years as a machinist. So when I started High School I wanted to be a machinist just like my dad. I even convinced him to teach me machine shop outside of school so that I would have an edge and I did. When the school board came around to do a film on machine shop practice they chose me as the demonstrator of the machinery. When the local steel company representatives came to the school to interview and see the capabilities of the students for their Apprenticeship program, I was chosen by the two largest steel companies in Canada. I went to my father who worked for one of those companies, and asked if I could be his apprentice and he said, “No.” So I started with the other company and lasted only a year.

I took a short break from work and then went looking for another factory job. Why, because that was what you did in a factory town. You grew up, went to school and then got a job in the factory. I lasted three years at the next company and worked my way up in status until I was managing the production for the entire plant at the tender age of twenty-one. I was a success, had my own parking space inside the plant, my own office, a new sports car and a new Harley-Davidson.

Then one day I was standing watching a man on the line rivet a piece of metal and I said to myself, “I can’t wait till I retire!” Now that was the mentality of all the workers in the plant, work your forty years and retire with a good pension. It was like someone hit me in the back of my head with a shovel and I realized that there must be more to life than working in a factory. I went home and told my dad that I was quitting. He couldn’t believe it because I had a better job than him and my whole future ahead of me.

I did quit and went back to school and my life has been more successful and more rewarding than I could have imagined. Now, a lot of people do what I did and succeed. A lot don’t. Those that can’t change their mind need to be guided by someone who knows where the person should be headed by discovering that person’s purpose in life and working out a plan of action to live and achieve it.

So, the moral of the story is discovering what your purpose truly is and then doing it without regard to what will happen if you do or what may happen if you change your life totally.

You often hear it said of a man, “Everything he undertakes succeeds,” or “Everything he touches turns to gold.” By the force of his character and the creative power of his thought, such a man wrings success from the most adverse circumstances. Confidence begets confidence. A man who carries his very presence an air of victory, radiates assurance, and imparts to others confidence that he can do the thing he attempts. As time goes on, he is reinforced not only by the power of his own thought, but also by that of all who know him. His friends and acquaintances affirm and reaffirm his ability to succeed, and make each successive triumph easier of achievement than it predecessor.

His self-poise, assurance, confidence and ability increase in a direct ratio to the number of his achievements.

So, you need to discovery your purpose and set your mind toward the thing you would accomplish so resolutely, so definitely, and with such vigorous determination, and put so much grit into your resolution, that nothing on earth can turn you from your purpose until you attain it.

If you doubt your ability to do what you set out to do; if you think that others are better fitted to do it than you; if you fear to let yourself out and take chances; if you lack boldness; if you have a timid, shrinking nature; if the negatives fill your vocabulary; if you think that you lack positiveness, initiative, aggressiveness, ability; you can never win anything until you change your whole mental attitude and learn to have great faith in yourself.

Your purpose must first be discovered or it will never be a reality; and a strong, vigorous concept of the thing you want to do is a tremendous initial step. The very intensity of your confidence in your ability to do the thing you attempt is definitely related to the degree of your success.

Contact me when you want to discover your purpose.

Yours in Health,
