Playing Big ~ The Beacon for August 30, 2011

Many people believe that when they get everything figured out or when things really align they will be without external challenges and oppositions.  This is far from the truth.  It is true that when we are heading in the wrong direction we will get numerous indicators from the outside to change our course.   When we are heading in the right direction it is common to get challenges from the outside as well.   Often when we are heading in the right direction and we are playing small we will get small challenges and when we are raise the stakes playing large we will get larger challenges.  The goal should not be to look for ease and comfort, which will often lead us to a path of little significance, but rather to see challenges as opportunities to grow from.
Think of Steve Jobs or Donald Trump, do you think that they have small or large problems?   Every time they hit a problem do you think that they see it as they are doing something wrong or do they see it as an opportunity to grow and learn from?   A sure fire way to grow your life is look to take on bigger challenges, if you don’t the universe will gift you with little ones that will fill up your time.   The benefits of taking on big problems are the little ones seem so much more insignificant. 

“Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocre minds.”   Albert Einstein.

So if you are tired of your usual array of daily small problems and want to spice up your life pick a bigger opportunity to take on, there are many to choose from, many you could invest your life with.  Don’t be shy, go for it!  And if you get opposition from mediocre minds know that you are working towards greatness.

Playing Big,
Dr. Norm

Love ~ The Beacon for Aug 9, 2011

No one who lives in fear is really alive.1

The following is an outline of my recent revelations about love. I am writing this to you from my heart. I am doing this, not to tell you what or how to think, for I understand that when dealing with the infinite this is impossible. I am doing this, rather to empower you to realize the possible blockages that you may have in expressing what is yours to express. First we must understand that there are universal truths. Love is infinite. This is a universal truth. The more pure and natural our perceptions are, the closer we come to fully understanding and accepting this truth. At the core of ourselves is the infinite. Filters, created by fear, encircle this core, limiting us and our perceptions. The infinite is always there and is always perfect. Fear acts not by destroying love but by reducing our awareness of its abundance.

Nothing real can be threatened Nothing unreal exists.2

Love is infinite. Love is the infinite. It is the basis for life. It is the reason why life was created. Universal intelligence is the intelligence that organizes the cosmos. It is this intelligence that allows love to exist. Universal intelligence manifests in man as innate. Innate is the intelligence that governs over the physical being. The expression of innate thru matter produces force. Force produces motion, which is essential for life. There are many forces that innate creates, however most forces that we are comfortable understanding are universal forces. Examples of these are molecular, gravitational and electromagnetic forces. Although these are present in living beings, these are not innate forces. The difference is that these forces are destructive in nature and have no properties unique to life. On the other hand, innate forces are constructive. They support life. Innate forces have been called: chi, vital, prana, pneuma, anima and elan. These forces give life its uniqueness.

In essence love is an innate force too. Love is constructive. Love is life. Love is the infinite that exists inside all of us. It is to be received but most importantly it is to be given. Fear limits our expression of love. Fear is created by our ego mind. Ego is that part of us that is in denial of the infinite. Fear is essentially the denial of self. It creates a feeling of inadequacy. It produces a scarcity belief, from which only error can develop. Love, on the other hand, is truth and truth is always abundant.

Every action taken by human beings is based in love or fear.
Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, runs, hides, hoards, harms.
Love is the energy which expands, opens up, sends out, stays, reveals, shares, heals.
Fear wraps our bodies in clothing, love allows us to stand naked Fear clings to and clutches all that we have, love gives all that we have away. Fear holds close, love holds dear. Fear grasps, love lets go. Fear rankles, love soothes. Fear attacks, love amends.
Every human thought, word, or deed is based in one emotion or the other. You have no choice about this, because there is nothing else from which to choose. But you have free choice about which of these to select.3

Man's natural inheritance is love. We all were born with an unlimited potential to express the infinite. Love cannot be controlled, contorted, mimicked, or destroyed. Love simply is. The acceptance of this is humility. Humility removes fear and allows us to be who we are. We cannot will ourselves to love, as ego is what creates fear. Only humility can release fear, as it is only spirit that posses the infinite.

Love is a mystery that cannot be approached through will; it responds most generously to humbled souls. In some unexplainable way, it seems to grace us when it is ready.4

To release us from our fear requires forgiveness. Forgiveness is only correction. Forgiveness with judgment is empty, as judgment is fear itself. Forgiveness is acceptance of what is. Forgiveness allows us to let go of our judgments, which releases us to our infinite.

Let go. Release yourself. Release yourself to what you already are and enter the realm of abundance. For you are already abundant. For you are the infinite.

Love and Light,
Dr. Norm Detillieux

Nutrition for Our Brain ~ The Beacon for Aug. 3, 2011

Today we have a special article from Dr. Arno Burnier, a chiropractor we will be fortunate to have speaking here in Nanaimo in the fall.  Stay tuned for details.  Until then - Enjoy!


The only difference between living Homo sapiens and corpses is the presence of Life energy.
Are we sick because we have cancer or do we develop cancer because we are sick in the first place?
Every second of our lives 100,000 chemical reactions take place in our brain. Mind boggling, isn’t it?
When fever rises to 103 degrees and above, our body manufactures Interferon the most potent anti-cancer chemical we know of today. Maybe aspirin is not such a good idea!

The human brain generates 25 watts of life energy in a constant manner. This bioenergy flows over through nerves to every tissue cell in the body.

Health and disease are the antipodal manifestation of wellness. Health is a message to act. Disease is a message to change.

Biological healing is cellular replacement. Skin cells live seven days. Heart cells ninety days. Red blood cells one hundred and twenty days. Bone cells thirty-six months. Spinal disc cells 9 months. Healing takes time!

We pray to the Maker but when it is time to have an appointment with God nobody wants to go. Put yourself in His/her shoes….That’s a hell of a rejection. Death is not the problem. Not being fully alive while living may be the problem!

Once we stop fearing death, we can start living. Death is birth in reverse. Was it so bad?

Health is a lot more than the absence of symptoms.
Spinal adjustments add life to years and years of life.
Symptoms are physical emotions. They should be expressed rather than suppressed.
Touch is the language of love. All I want to do is help you get well and stay well. I need the same trust you placed in medication and medicine. Give me as much of a chance and as much time.

Thank you.
Arno Burnier, D.C.
