In the original movie from the Star Wars series, the mission to destroy the Death Star approaches. Luke Skywalker is apprehensive and nervous. Then we hear the distinct voice of his mentor and teacher, Obi Wan Kenobi, in his head “The force is with you, always.” This reassures and calms Luke as he departs. From that famous line, “May the force be with you” became a familiar catch phrase.
Within each one of us there is a force that is greater and more powerful than the one referred to in the Star Wars movie. It is with us 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Different healing disciplines call it different things. Life force, chi or qi are some examples. In the chiropractic profession, the spark of life that animates and makes us alive is known as your Innate Intelligence.
This force keeps the stomach digesting, your kidneys filtering, your heart beating and your immune systems working. It allows your body to do thousands of things simultaneously, coordinating and organizing each process. The amazing thing about this force is that it doesn’t just maintain the function of your being, it is always striving to do it better. It is always constructive.
When this force is fully expressed in you, your life experience improves. The clarity with which you see the world around you is sharpened. Your existence switches from surviving each day to thriving in it. All the healthy habits you have are enhanced by a clear expression of your life force or innate intelligence.
One of the main avenues for the expression of your innate intelligence is over your nervous system. The life-giving messages originate in different parts of the brain and use the telephone line of the body, the nerves, to transmit them. Your skull and spine are designed to protect the brain and nerves at all times. When the spine loses its natural balance, unusual and damaging tension is placed on the nerves. If you have ever experienced a cell phone call getting out range, the same situation can happen to your nerves and innate intelligence.
Chiropractors work to improve the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. When that relationship is strong and supportive, your innate intelligence is on job. Consult a chiropractor to make sure it is fully expressed. The force is within you!
