Let Love Rule Today and Everyday!

I believe that every day can and should be a celebration of love.  On Feb 14th our corporate world has given us a reason to celebrate love with cards, chocolate and flowers and of course there is value in setting aside time and intention for special celebrations.  However this year let’s let love shine throughout the year.  Let Valentine’s Day be the hallmark day to set an example of how we can love each and every day this year.  

Below are some of my favourite quotes on love.  Please enjoy....and a special reminder that this Valentine’s Day marks the eight-th anniversary for The Lifehouse, please stop by the studio for an adjustment or a special hello today for a hug, hello and a gift from us as we celebrate the blessing it has been to serve you for the past 8 years!  Thank you Nanaimo and thank YOU!   I have also included a special Chiropractic Miracle section at the bottom of the page - enjoy. 

May you love full out, 125%, to the most of your potential each and every day including and especially this Valentines Day.

Love, Love, Love  
Dr. Norm  
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”  ~ Lao Tzu  
“Love the person you are with for who they are and they will become who you love.”   ~  Dr. John Demartini  
“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.” ~  Dr. Norm Detillieux  

Chiropractic Miracles  
I work with miracles everyday- that being the miracle that is found inside you!  As this miracle is released, amazing things happen.   Pains are released, relationships repaired, disease healed and for some even eyesight is restored.  As some of you may remember I used to wear glasses, but don’t any more as my body was able to heal itself through the assistance of great chiropractic care!  Below is a you tube link to another story of a man whose eyesight was restored through chiropractic care.  When the physical and spiritual are aligned all things are possible.

Pain: Friend or Foe ~ The Beacon for Mon, Feb 11, 2013

Is a headache a normal or an abnormal body response?  Most of us would say it’s an abnormal body response.  Commercials for pain pills state the following: “Tell your headache to take a powder.  This is strong medicine for strong pain.  This delivers twice the pain medicine in half the time.”  All brag of their ability to get rid of the pain.   What about the cause of the pain?

Guyton’s textbook of Medical Physiology defines the purpose of pain as follows:

                        Pain is a protective mechanism for the body;  it occurs whenever
                        any tissues are being damaged and causes the individual to react
                        reflexively to remove the pain stimulus.

Pain then is a normal body function.  It is the body’s way of informing us that something is wrong.

If we are concerned with only feeling better often we are moved to suppress, combat or alleviate any circumstance, situation, or awareness that alters the way we are
accustomed to living our life.  We begin to take painkillers and antidepressants or distract ourselves with addictions like gambling, food, sex, drugs and shopping which in the short term may offer some relief but soon after we will return to feeling empty or having more pain than we did before.

Healing does not always mean that we will feel better.  We cannot heal what we cannot feel, and healing often requires us to feel things that we don’t like feeling.  If we believe the myth that “healing means feeling better,” then feeling better becomes our objective instead of simply feeling what our bodymind must feel in order to heal and evolve.

Looking forward to seeing you at our 8th Anniversary and “The Secret Wisdom to Symptoms” talk!
