One of my patients recently asked me to start a book club. I have always wanted to. Here and there I have joined them and for one reason or another they have not worked out. This week I will be attempting again. Thank you!

As it turns out it is really hard to get a bunch of people together in the same room at the same time. I sent out the email with the date and within five seconds I got an email from my daughter’s school about college night. It was the same night as the first book club meeting so I already had to change the date. (For those who don’t know me I have identical twin daughters who are seniors in two different high schools and one daughter who is a junior in college). Thankfully, since I already went through this process once it’s a bit easier this time even though it is double.  Yet, I still felt that I needed to go to that meeting because every year is different let alone every school.

Anyway, the first meeting is this week for the book club! I decided to post the books we will be reading in case anyone wants to join on line! The first book is The Power of  Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy. It was written in the 60’s but I think it is really a blue print for other books in that genre that came later.  Many people I have read, reference this book and give a lot of credit to it for helping them get where they wanted to go.

I read this book in the 1980’s some time and I am re-reading it. It is so interesting to revisit it in my 50’s. I see the shift in my priorities but the essence of the ideas hold up as well as ever. While it’s almost like reading a different book there are many ideas that I really incorporated into my life. My favorite being about viewing from the end.

I hope the readers of this blog will read the book and post about their experiences.  Reading in this genre has always been appealing to chiropractors.  Since we emphasize that stress can be emotional as well as chemical and physical it is important to feed your mind positive information.

As my husband (not a chiropractor) always says, “If you lift yourself up, you can see a bigger picture.” I like that quote. It works literally and metaphorically.
