Sid-isms?

How do you prepare yourself for your day? Do you arrive for work at 8:58am sprinting through the door? Or do you get to work early and meditate, pray, visualize, breathe, and truly prepare yourself for your day? You will notice you are far more productive and approach the days ups and downs with more calmness if you give yourself the gift of ‘mental floss’ before you let the whirlwind of the day get past you.
Are you really seeing what you think you are seeing? What is behind your vision is your interpretation of what you are looking at. That makes up a lot of filters. How you look at things does make a difference. Listen to Dr. Rubin in the 2nd of 8 installments regarding building your visual abilities.
“We chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul” starts the poetic description of how the body works in BJ Palmer’s “This Inner Power Speaks.” What does that mean? How do you describe what you do to someone? Do you describe the ‘what’ in what you do or the ‘why’? The why is something far more compelling and is what builds businesses and referrals. What’s your why?
What’s the big idea? It is as simple as this: when you eat your breakfast or lunch, how does that sandwich turn into bones and eyes and stomach lining? How does your body know to breathe in and out? How does your heart know to keep pumping? That is the big idea…as Dr. Chuck Ribley would say, “the power that made the body, heals the body.” The body doesn’t heal itself…the power that made it heals it. As BJ Palmer said, “Get the big idea, and all else follows.”
The book, Visual Thinking Strategies, inspired Dr. Rubin to begin each one of his elective classes viewing different pictures or videos showing a variety of disorders, from chicken pox and measles to Autism and ADHD. Listen to lesson 1 of 8 in this series!
Your body is magical! Ever get a paper cut? What happens? You bleed, and then it stops. Who/what did that? Isn’t that amazing? The body has this incredible strength behind it, but so many of us don’t know how to tap into that potential.
