A practice member was in for an adjustment and while on the table, she talked about the recent movie The Power of Forgiveness. It was sponsored by the Seymour Library. The book by the same name is also available at the library. My practice member said it was thought provoking and added it can be very difficult to forgive.
I agreed with her knowing people can do unimaginable things.
The documentary shows studies that demonstrate people can have forgiving or unforgiving personalities. Holding onto emotions becomes deeply ingrained in a person's physiology.
Chiropractors use the term "spinal learning" to describe a learned response that takes over the body's homeostatic mechanisms. Candice Pert, PhD, author of Molecules of Emotions has illustrated this with the discovery of the opiate receptors which can block pain. She has also written the book Your Body is Your Subconscious Mind. In this book she explains why I say your body speaks when your own mind is in denial.
We can transmit our un-forgiving-ness into our nervous systems.
How can we forgive and forget?
Here is an age old argument. Does forgiving require forgetting? Forgiveness is a decision that helps you dissolve the blockages in your nervous system. Maybe other people don't change but you can let the reverberations of the past weaken and have less of a hold on you.
Chiropractic can help you dissolve emotions you know are holding you back from living fully. Delve into the personal power of understanding the 3 levels of subluxation.
Our goal is to have super-luxation!
Here's an extra treat for you:
Take a listen to Dr. DeMartini in a radio interview on choosing happiness.
See you at the table...the chiropractic table.
You get to choose.
