TRUE HEALING INCORPORATES ALL ASPECTS OF OUR BEING.
In our search for wholeness, we may have experienced therapies that alleviated low back pain, counseling that assisted us in sorting out thoughts and belief systems, techniques that encouraged release of trapped or negative emotions, support groups that connected us to our child within to facilitate the healing of a traumatic past, meditations that fed a yearning soul and/or experienced surges of energy moving through our body in areas we knew were blocked.
What we need to realize, however, is that back pain, emotions, mental ties to the past, spiritual yearnings, and energy blocks are all manifestations of the same problem. The cause of suffering is always the same.
SUFFERING IS THE EXPRESSION OF OUR TRUE FEELINGS WANTING TO BE ACKNOWLEDGED AND OUR ESSENCE TRYING TO GET OUT SO OUR HIGHEST PURPOSE CAN BE LIVED.
We are a culmination of all we have ever experienced. All of our past makes up who and how we are today. A negative past relationship with a parent can precipitate low self-esteem and tension that later manifests as a headache, hives, PMS, lack of job fulfillment, breathing difficulties, indecisiveness, anxiety attacks in group situations, or anything! The mind-body connection is so strong that it is not possible to affect one without affecting the other. One thought can produce up to 2000 secretions!
ONE THOUGHT CAN CHANGE THE ENTIRE FUNCTIONING OF THE BODY!
We may have mentally cleared energy blocks and patterns from the past but may still be storing them physically. We need to clear all areas of our life to truly heal.
If we could heal our past and future to be fully present in the Now, and we could clear emotional and mental patterns that recreate limiting behavior, and eliminate pain or uncomfortable warning signals altogether, we would really transform.
If we could let go of who we are not so we could be who we are, we would feel nearer and nearer to the expression of God. We would be healing those aspects of our being that prevent our life from working to its fullest potential. We would be aligned mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. That is health.
At Mountain Dove Healing Center in beautiful Sedona, Arizona, we combine several different chiropractic techniques, all gentle, holistic, rapport-based, and energetically empowering to the body's own healing wisdom. We have continually attended post-graduate studies to offer chiropractic techniques that are on the forefront of holistic health, especially those that facilitate true and deep healing. Network Spinal Analysis technique has been a tremendous influence on the healing we offer.
When getting a chiropractic adjustment, many of our practice members have expressed an awareness of greater connection to Essence, Life Force, and the Source of their inner healing, which chiropractors refer to as Innate Intelligence. This intelligence courses through our brain, spinal cord and nervous system, communicating with every single cell, coordinating all activities and body functions. It sustains, animates, motivates, energizes and heals us. It is what creates the human form. It is what heals a broken bone. It affects cellular memory, perceptions and lives as it connects the inner you to the outer you. It is a healing current within us.
OUR NERVOUS SYSTEM IS A CONDUIT OF CONSCIOUSNESS. WHEN AWAKENED, THIS LIFEFORCE BATHES EVERY CELL WITH NEW BREATH, NEW LIFE, ALL-PERVADING INTELLIGENCE AND NEW VITALITY.
Disease, illness and pain are expressions of our body’s innate intelligence being stuck. Why is it that a shoulder injury of 10 years is still bothersome when the cells in our body regenerate every seven years, producing new bones, muscles and ligaments? This is because the nervous system remembers all the anxieties, fears, stresses and traumas we have ever experienced. Our nervous systems may perceive a past stress as if it is still occurring.
This being stuck in the past is called a “pathological dominant pattern” within the nervous system. Our chiropractic adjustments use gentle, precise, sustained contacts to release tension in the spinal system. A more flexible nervous system is capable of “clearing” the memory of past physical, emotional, mental and chemical trauma. When these memories are cleared, we can perceive happenings in the Now instead of through the filter of old dominant patterns.
The chiropractic techniques we use all have as a goal to eliminate nerve interference which can be caused by a torquing or twisting of the meningeal system (the soft-tissue covering over the brain and spinal cord). This torquing happens in response to signals received from the brain as it is overcome by stressful situations. Traditional structural chiropractic techniques are used in a specific sequence during the treatment when necessary. All of the hands-on approaches and breath techniques utilized are very gentle and usually feel very good, relaxing and empowering.
THE SHAPE OF OUR SPINE MAY PREDISPOSE OUR LIFE EXPERIENCE.
The position and tension of the spinal system as a result of these subluxations can alter physical function, hormonal balance, our perceptions of reality, coordination, strength, muscle tension, our ability to handle stress and recover, and our adaptation to life. Subluxations are alleviated to allow full life expression to course through the body unobstructed. Our self-healing properties become activated. We become connected to our source and therefore have greater access to our inner truth and beauty.
AS THE NERVOUS SYSTEM CLEARS, LIVES HEAL.
ILLNESS IS A COMMUNICATION FROM OUR HIGHER SELF. SOMETHING IS ASKING TO BE HEALED. SYMPTOMS COME TO MOTIVATE US TO LISTEN TO OUR HIGHER SELF AND AWAKEN OUR AWARENESS SO WE CAN CHANGE.
Two people may have the manifestation of low back pain. As they heal by releasing the resident intelligence within, they discover things about themselves and grow in different ways. One comes into our healing center and says she hasn’t fallen or lifted anything heavy, yet pain persists. Her healing involves releasing emotional causes. She realizes fears have created her back pain and have literally jolted her and produced an armoring around her. She connects to her inner strength and replaces fear with trust. She can then let go of her armoring and pain and become soft and feeling again.
Another woman has low back pain from an apparently physical cause because she was in a car accident. But are there any accidents? The healing she ultimately received from the chiropractic clear-outs in our office helped her regroup her life, finances, job and relationships, she told us.
We have seen much growth come from times that appear to be a healing crisis. We observed a woman with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome heal and surrender to deep rest. She was able to gracefully tell others to leave her alone. She learned to deal with internal forces of anger that were creating an internal resistance, which is very tiring. As her nervous system was cleared to the degree that she could handle dealing with past pains, she resolved many old issues. She recognized she was “tired” of her life the way she was living it and redefined her sense of self to include new, more joyous activities that allowed her energy to move. She also realized she was “paralyzed” with lack of love for herself and others. Her essence was screaming for acknowledgement and expression. By healing deeply, she was able to transform her life. Would giving her injections, supplements or anything from the outside-in have truly healed her? No…it would have further sublimated her essence by ignoring its call, and merely anaesthetized aspects of her being. Physically this woman may have received temporary relief, but the cause of her problem would still be there—unhealed.
HEALING ASKS FOR CHANGE AND IS ALWAYS TRANSFORMATIVE. HEALING INCORPORATES ALL ASPECTS OF OUR LIFE.
From our experience in this office, we have seen Network Chiropractic deliver what the founders of chiropractic has always enthusiastically known and claimed—that when you remove interference to the nervous system, the power that created the body can heal the body. Healing is a life-long process, and very often it is a joyous one.
