I had an amazing experience about 10 days ago. I was walking along a city street at lunch time and I tripped and fell, landing on my left knee and left elbow and wrist and THEN BOUNCED /ROLLED onto my right knee, hip and wrist and elbow, the hip taking the brunt of the fall. I had a lace top on under my over jacket and blazer and the lace left an imprint in my left elbow – red colour – but no broken skin. The bracelet on my right hand marked my wrist – red but no broken skin. I just wanted to lay on the ground and not move. I was scared to get up, but did so and strangers helped me sit down. Kindness everywhere.
My whole body was very sore and I decided to wait a couple of days for the pain to ease before I went to the osteopath to be adjusted. I expected to be black and blue with bruises and it just did not happen. My hip was sore and the muscles in my right limbs were sore as well.
I couldn’t work out why I felt so good after such a crashing fall on the hard pavement.
Then I remembered. I had for the past so many months been saying at least 5 times a day:
I AM WHOLE, PERFECT, STRONG, POWERFUL, LOVING, HARMONIOUS AND HAPPY.
I went to the osteopath 2 days ago and he massaged my body and clicked it back into place and for all intents and purposes, I do not appear to need to go back for this mishap.
The irony is I wanted to talk to him about my business and I had been wondering how I would get in front of him again to bring the subject up.
THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR, YOU MIGHT JUST GET IT.
Having crashed as I did, I rehearsed well what I intended to say to him to engender sufficient interest to have him look at my material. I was going to make sure I got it right and get some value for my crashing experience.
So during the consult, here i am, face down on the treatment couch, I brought the subject up and he agreed to look at my material and we arranged for me to follow up, as the treatment was completed. As Davene says – Go Use The Skills – G U T S.
IT’S NOT WHAT LIFE THROWS UP AT YOU, BUT WHAT YOU DO WITH IT AND THAT WE NEED TO TURN PROBLEMS INTO OPPORTUNITIES.
