The Metaphysical —
To me, the word metaphysical means there is way more to the human body than what meets the eye — way more than you could ever see or taste or touch or smell or hear. It is the energy that separates a living organism from a dead one. The word can sound negative to people who think just in terms of science versus superstition. But when it comes to the human body, there is way more about how it works than we even realize. The body is far smarter than we realize.
BJ Palmer, the developer of chiropractic, talks about the innate mind and the educated mind. Decisions based on the knowledge you have gained, the science you have tried to wrap your head around — that is the educated mind. The gut intuition, the still small voice, that is the innate mind. BJ Palmer always recommended going with the innate first. To be led by that still small voice. It is the guiding force that keeps your heart beating and your lungs breathing. Your gut knows things your brain hasn’t quite figured out yet.
