My Educated Mind is Tired!

By Sharon Gorman, DC

I spoke Saturday Night to the Saturday Night Live group in Fort Lauderdale. Great group!

I had an awesome surprise. Chris and Patsy Sigafoose drove down from Sarasota. I’ve loved that man for close to 30 years now. As many of you know he is facing some health challenges. I should say facing up to them because all he wanted to talk about was getting well and getting back to work. After dealing in the medical arena for a few months he has become crystal clear that any encounter that we have with a patient is a blessing to that patient. He told me that he is becoming a better Chiropractor because he has seen for himself what the medical profession is doing or not doing. After 30 years he is still learning and is still grateful for Chiropractic and still can’t wait to get his hands on people. He inspired me. Thanks Chris for inspiring me and thanks Patsy for taking such good care of my friend and for being you.

While preparing for my talk on Saturday night I took time to reflect on this past year. I did a lot of thinking this year. My thinking got me where I wanted to go and got me out of a few jams too. I’ve always been told that I have a pretty good head on my shoulders and I’ve paired it up with my “gut” to come up with some pretty sharp decisions in my life so I am not discounting it’s value but my educated mind alone has certainly not made me that success that I am (on many levels not just financially).

I’ve always considered myself an innate chiropractor. Well what does that mean? I can only tell you what it means to me. As in innate chiropractor I try to follow the hunch. I work on developing the hunch. I develop the hunch by listening to it and by meditating so that I can hear it. I actually celebrate the fact that I don’t have to be the pilot, I can see myself as the co-pilot.

When I give the adjustment I don’t have to do the healing. A matter of fact as Jim Sigafoose says, “I can’t cure a patient, I can’t even cure a ham.” Healing comes from within and the adjustment releases the interference to this innate expression called the subluxation. The adjustment connects man the physical with man the spiritual by allowing the innate wisdom of the body to heal the body. I’m not responsible for when the patient doesn’t get well as much as I am not responsible for when they do get well. Of course I am always rooting for them to get well but other factors do exist. I am very responsible to the patient to locate and correct their subluxations to the very best of my ability and to show them the importance of this function. That’s what I do most of my waking hours. I tell the story and deliver the goods.

I stay as clear as I possibly can so that I can connect with the patient from my innate to their innate. This connection is why they come to me and come back again. I can’t connect to them if I am bogged down in my educated and if I am not totally focused on the moment. I have to discipline myself to stay in tuned and to remember that I serve man by serving God and the clearer that I stay the better and instrument I can be to serve God’s will by serving my fellow man.

Now that is what I do in my office. I am an innate chiropractor. I am also an innate driven person. I try to love, serve and give out of my abundance. I also feel like God’s will for me is to act in love and to spread love. I try to fall in love with everyone I meet and I strive to show them love in all of my encounters with them. This gives me that something extra about me. People want to be around me not only because they can feel my love and respect for them from me but also because I try to make them feel good about themselves when they are in my company. I try to bring out their magnificence, not flaunt mine. I try to make them feel good about themselves when they are around me. That is what makes them want to be around me and want what I have. What I have is a logical, magnificent way to take care of their health and a philosophy that they can use to live their lives but it all starts and ends with my ability to attract them into my world and want to know what I know and what I want to share with them.

I live from inside out and not from outside in. I am in innate chiropractor. My educated is necessary but needs a rest. I need to do what I do best. I need to focus on centering myself on what really, really makes me special. I need to live the “hunch”.
