Fearless Chiro

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.” – Ambrose Bierce

I took a risk this past week in response to an article in my local newspaper.  The article was relating the current string of tragedies in our community.  While the incidents related were indeed sad….what really got my attention was the way the author of the article attributed the misfortunes to “well…we live in a sinful world, bad things happen….someday we’ll live in a better place”.  Age old rationalizations of the fear-mind.

The risk I took was responding with a letter to the editor….suggesting that instead of fear we could choose intention based on the Law of Attraction.  That instead of suffering through what some may view as a “trail of tears” here on earth…we could instead rejoice in the joy and previlege of this physical experience.

What is more important than fear?  Recognizing again (maybe for the first time) who we really are.  A magical, brilliant manifestation of Spirit in a world of physical form….which, by the way, is an expression of what we choose to experience and create.

My choice today is to stay in the place of the Observor….leaving the fear-mind ego reaction alone when Life presents me with the opportunities for growth in this day.  I will observe and not react to the challenge of insurance reimbursement, or the inability of a patient to see at this time the opportunity that chiropractic presents to them.

May you IN-JOY your day, free of fear….

“You will ALWAYS be center stage in the Universe that YOU have created.”

“They” say that the greatest human fear is the fear of public speaking.  If that is true, then it follows that most people have a fundamental challenge.  That is…that when it comes to excelling in your particular field, this challenge will definitely need to be addressed.

The Law of Attraction states that we have attracted into our experience all that we perceive.  That makes each of us the absolute Center of the Universe!  That’s pretty cool – AND pretty scary.

We often have a tendency to think that our story does not deserve a voice….even our version and understanding of chiropractic.  What is helpful to remember is that you attracted your patients to you….they were not attracted by the latest and greatest speaker on the Parker stage.  We can learn basic principles from our mentors, techniques to deliver your unique message more fluidly…but the end result will always be you.

Have you ever tried to copy a patient lecture presentation given by a speaker you admire?  Have you noticed the effectiveness and power eventually came not from the perfection of the copy but in the evolution of the “you” shining through?

Practice makes YOU…not perfect, or your illusion of a perfection outside of yourself.

So my homework this week is to appreciate the me in my delivery….of the message of chiropractic, the delivery of the adjustment…and ultimately in the gift of my unique Self to the people in my universe.

IN-JOY,

Perry

Just finished participating in a webinar this morning on the topic of the HITECH Stimulus Act and EHR recording….

Rather…uh…inspiring… in a left-brain, anal sort of way.  And here I was…all set to go “cash practice” all the way.

My take on the whole thing is….WOW…what a lot of energy for increasing participation in Medicare.  Kind of like reading a 900 page thriller on how to enjoy a root canal…

Seems to be the way of the future, or at least the future of an insurance based practice.  We sure did open the proverbial Pandora’s box with Medicare inclusion back in the ’70′s or whenever it was.

Here’s the fear part.  Do I take the risk of ‘all those’ Medicare patients that I would be missing by not participating in the latest tactic of the insurance/political industry to pull us deeper into the ‘black hole’ of allopathic nomenclature and billing.  Or….choose to practice in a different direction…push farther into the unknown of a third party free practice.

I really do enjoy taking care of my age 65 plus folks.  And, like The 100 Year Lifestyle says, that aspect of our practice is only going to increase.  Alot.  Only time I really envy my cousins who are osteopaths…is when I realize that they apparently have the option to ‘just say no’…opt out of the insanity.  Guess they have their own brand of pain though…

So….here we are…floating around that big circle of the ‘event horizon’….wondering how far we get sucked in before there is really no scrambling back…and we emerge on the other side…in who-knows what form of ‘healer’…

IN-JOY your day!
