Nathaniel Branden, one of the world’s foremost leaders in personal development and author of the international best seller, Six Pillars of Self Esteem, once spoke on personal integrity.  He stated how there are three levels of integrity that humans may exemplify.  The first and most rudimentary is where the individual has very little respect for rules: "Forget the rules, I will do whatever I dang well please. If there is a loaf of bread I will steal it if I want to."  The second level of integrity is where one sees all rules as set in stone and follows each and every one of them to the tee:  "Rules must be followed, even if my family is starving to death I would never steal."  And the third level of integrity is more complex and integrative, where both the larger social rules are met with the inner personal rules and the individual finds their own highest choice on a moment to moment basis:  "I will do my best to follow the rules of the land, however if my family is starving and my only source of food is to steal a loaf of bread, as much as I don't want to break the rules of the land, my desire to feed my family outweighs this."
The word "integrity" stems from the Latin adjective integer (whole, complete). In this context, integrity is the inner sense of "wholeness" deriving from qualities such as honesty and consistency of character. As such, one may judge that others "have integrity" to the extent that one judges whether they behave according to the values, beliefs and principles they claim to hold.
    A few months ago I made an agreement with myself to set a goal of the quantity of service that I would be able to give by the end of August.  I also set with it a reward for myself if I hit this goal, and also set a consequence if I didn't make the goal.  During that time I bought a house, moved my personal belongings, and then started renovations for the new Lifehouse space.  So many great things were accomplished; however, unfortunately I didn't reach the goal that I had set out.  The consequence was that for the month of September I wouldn't have access to my motorcycle. :(   This was a very difficult thing to give up, however the value of being in personal integrity far outweighed the joys of riding my bike.  On the up side it certainly did give me extra time and energy to focus on the renovations.  All things work out in perfect order!  AND the forecast is for sun this weekend!  Yippie!  Both Heather and I are so excited to do some riding.

Riding with Integrity,
Dr. Norm

Life Energy Spectrum

Would you rather be rich or just "not poor"?

Would you rather be fit or just "not fat"?

Would you rather be smart or just "not dumb"?

Would you rather be healthy or just "not sick"?

Last night I had another wonderful trip to Vancouver to listen to one of the world’s leading authorities on health and wellness, Dr. Kevin Donka.  He shared with us what he considers to be the most important thing to understand about health and life.  I hope it is as impactful to you as it is to me.

Light Energy Spectrum

When we look at the light energy spectrum there is a gradation between dark to dim to bright all the way to brilliant.  This gradation is due to a varying degree of light energy.  Realize that there is no entity of darkness it is simply due to a lack of light energy. 

Heat Energy Spectrum 

We can also look at the heat energy spectrum where there is a gradation between cold to cool to warm all the way to hot.  This gradation is due to a varying degree of heat energy.  Realize that there is no entity of coldness it is simply due to a lack of heat energy. 

Life Energy Spectrum

The same is true when we look at the life energy spectrum where there is a gradation between disease to dis-ease to health and all the way to wholeness.  This gradation is due to a varying degree of life energy.  Realize that there is no entity of disease it is simply due to a lack of life energy. 

Health is a result of how much life energy you express.  Your life energy is expressed through your spine and nerve system.  Know when you are getting adjusted you are turning up your life energy moving you up the life energy spectrum.  Turn it on, turn it up. Get Adjusted!
Have a great weekend shining your life energy bright!

Yours wearing sun shades,
Dr. Norm


 Join us for The Lifehouse Transition Ceremony

Thursday, Sept 23rd – Next Week! Last day of adjusting at The Lifehouse on Fitz!

We take the time to celebrate our location and memories here over the past 5+ years with a transition ceremony, after adjusting sessions complete for the day.  Be here for 6:30pm. Danielea Castell is helping us to transition with the ceremony and a follow-up intro to creating language mastery (see below), as we make our move over the weekend to Jingle Pot, ready for service on Monday the 27th - Yay Team! 

For the Ceremony: Bring an item you’d like to be gifted to The Lifehouse for the new space and we will gather blessings from our Fitzwilliam location with them. 

Share a memory of your best, most memorable experience in the space or from your sessions in a brief sentence.

For those who are excited to upgrade your language, stay from 7-8:30 for a FREE seminar introducing Conscious Language:

Do your WORDS agree with what you
desire to manifest for yourself, your family
and your community?

Language is powerful. What we say matters – turns into ‘matter’. Where there used to be a delay on our words, we can now manifest within days, hours and sometimes minutes of thinking, feeling and saying something.  

Discover the effect your language is having on your life.  Come to a fun, free, informative introduction to Conscious Language™ tools and technologies. Danielea Castell
