STORY OF THE WEEK
The Winner of the Readers' Choice Story of the Week
Dr Peter Amlinger
Your Story What You Think About..Comes About has been chosen as the Winner of the Readers' Choice Story of the Week.
I have a friend who suffered a horrific car crash on December 8, 2008. He was struck by an 18 wheeler and suffered a fractured 4th lumbar vertebra, 4 broken ribs and most significantly a facture of the atlas vertebra.
The atlas is the top bone in the neck and it houses and protects the brain stem, which is the Grand Central Station of the nervous system.
This man was told that he was lucky to be alive, that they basically did not know why he was alive, with no spinal cord damage. To cut to the chase, they put him in a rigid neck brace and told him to come back in 6 weeks. After six weeks there was NO healing and things looked grim. The neurosurgeon explained that his neck was unstable and that there was a fragment of bone sitting on the right vertebral artery and if he moved his head toward his right shoulder it would severe the artery and he would die instantly.
If he moved his head toward his left shoulder a fragment of bone was sitting on the left side of his brainstem and spinal cord and it would become severed and he would instantly become a tetraplegic. They said six more weeks in the collar and then surgery to fuse the top two bones in his neck to his skull, a very risky surgery. He really did not want this risky surgery but the surgeons told him that it was inevitable.
This person, who had been under chiropractic care since the age of 4 did not want surgery because he understood the risk of the surgery and the importance of this area of his nervous system.
We had dinner shortly after he received the news and asked for my help. I told him he needed to spend 10 minutes every day seeing his neck totally healed and to feel the feelings he would feel if he had just found out his neck was perfectly healed. I put my hands on his neck and visualized the same outcome for him. His eldest daughter committed to doing the exercise as well.
The result at his next check up showed almost complete healing which the medical specialists could not explain – and no need for surgery. A true miracle!
So, what do you visualize before during and after your adjustment? What do you expect from your chiropractic care? How much time do you spend visualizing how you would like your life to look every day? Remember, what your mind can conceive and believe; it can achieve, for that is why we have an innate intelligence that runs our body.

A SPECIAL MESSAGE OF THANK YOU FROM JOHN
A HUGE THANK YOU for purchasing my book You Can... Expect A Miracle. Sales have been fantastic worldwide.
As you know I launched the book in the USA in September and the Australian edition was released in late December.
Currently major publicity is happening in the USA and Australia and I need to ask a huge favour. If you brought the book off Amazon, Expect A Miracle website or via our flyer mailing and you have at sometime in the past purchased through Amazon, please go onto the Amazon site and post a review for the book.
Many kind souls have posted some amazing 5 out of 5 reviews. Your help in pushing this number over 100 in the immediate future would be a massive help in assisting me in the PR plan I have put in motion.
I am currently in negotiations with major TV and Media personalities who use Amazon Book Reviews as a great guide to audience acceptance.
I have recently spoken on a high traffic New York evening radio program and on Sydney's radio station 2UE one of Australia's leading radio stations. On New Year's Eve I did a very interesting half hour interview on Radio Norfolk.
Newspaper articles are starting to appear in Australian dailies and two extensive articles will be published in Japan in February in two different publications. Numerous other things are happening media wise in the USA and Australia at present and when these are confirmed, I will keep you posted.
It is amazing the number of people who are purchasing books in case lots of 60 with a 50% discount to use them as meaningful gifts for clients, family and friends.
Once again THANKS A BUNCH in advance for placing your book review on amazon.com.
