The Definition of Insanity
When we do the same thing over and over and it doesn’t work, one might call it a kind of sanity. For years I’ve been noticing how patients continue to go to a psychologist or chiropractor but never seem to get anywhere. In his seminars, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt reminds practitioners that the very thing the patient is doing the least is what they probably need the most.
I was guilty of this myself years ago when I had a neck that just wouldn’t cooperate. Sooner or later, I reasoned, the vertebrae and surrounding muscles will get the message, but of course no message was delivered because the problem was not the neck, it was the microbes that were having a party in the neck tissue.
Dr. Klinghardt also figured out that the mind that creates disease is the same mind that leads us down the mulberry path until we are like Hansel or Gretel lost in the woods. I can’t tell you how many patients have come to me, patients who have been everywhere, but where they can get help, and once they find a practitioner who might help them, their ears are plugged — they are convinced there is no hope.
It is sad to see someone walk away with a negative attitude, knowing that unless we grab hold the reins of our mind and do some serious self talk we cannot get out of the maze the mind has created.
