What To Be…

When you were a wee child, what did you dream of being when you grew up? Have you even grown up yet?? (Me, I’m still holding on to my belief that I’ll be young forever…riiight!)

Very few childhood dreams come true. Also, not many of us find out what we really want to be until we grow up. Now, with all the adult responsibilities resting on our shoulders, it’s a nightmarish thought to start down a new path.  Not only can this decision be scary, but it can also be confusing!

To try to take the confusion out of deciding what is really best for you to do with your adult life, there have been many tests produced. Let’s face it, those tests work about as well as the Facebook personality/job quizzes we take for fun!! You get a laugh out of it, but would you really want to do what the quiz told you to do??  More than likely, most of us took our Adolescent Vocational Aptitude Test and found out what we were going to steer away from! I remember having a big laugh at what my test informed me what I should do with the rest of my life!!

Too Many Choices…

Then there’s the possibility of having too many things you want to be, or are good at.

Back to me again.

I went to Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and graduated with a BFA in photography. (Money well spent there…) Currently I do work as an Interior Decorator and I love to create 3D artwork. But hey! I take really nice pictures of my work!  All of my dabbling in the arts has taken me down an unexpected path. I am now doing what I know I was meant for. I am bringing healing to people. Through gathering and introducing people to Dynamics of Healing I feel more useful and purposeful than I have ever felt in my life. Never in a million years did I think decorating for Sabrina at Dynamics would bring me to this conclusion. I have been helped so much by Connie and Sabrina, that I want everyone to experience the same healing that has been given to me.

If you’ve been to the clinic, and been on the receiving end of the healing hands of either Connie or Sabrina, you know, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are doing what they were made for!! No question about it. They have the gift of healing!! If you haven’t been to the clinic yet, BOY, ARE YOU MISSING OUT!! So maybe you don’t feel there is anything medically wrong with you. Maybe you think that coming to the clinic is for people who have been sent by a doctor. Or, maybe you’re waiting until you really hurt, and then you won’t have a choice. Well, whichever describes you best, just make the decision to come in and feel better! You won’t regret it!!

Timing…

I see a pattern forming here. It’s all about timing!! If I had been told in high school that my true heart lies in helping others to find health and healing, I would have laughed in the face of the person telling me. Not to mention, I am all about art. Creating art. Seeing art. Collecting art. I had to be lead down a pathway that took me to where I am. Art was the carrot that kept me moving along my path. As a child I dreamed of being an artist. I wanted my work to hang in galleries all over the world. I was very focused on me. God used my interests to open my eyes to the hurting world around me, and that I want to help everyone in it. Let’s face it, art is great! But can it change your life? Maybe. Can it give you hope? Possibly. Can it give you healing? No. Can it give you health? I don’t think so. God took His time getting me here, but I’m thankful he did!

I heard a wonderful story today about a woman who loves to provide happiness and comfort to the elderly using her beautiful singing voice and playing dominos. It blesses them and cheers them up. In turn, she receives great joy and satisfaction. So much so, she wishes she had started earlier. But I think if she had, it would not have given her the joy she is receiving now. She is retired and has the time to do it. Before retiring, she might have found spending time with the elderly to be a chore or an added responsibility that she just could not undertake. Any joy she gained would be tarnished by the guilt of taking time away from family or work. This is her time to bless others, pure and simple.

Time can be cruel. Time can go miserably slow, or it can go so fast it will make your head spin. Unfortunately we cannot control time. We have to do the best with what time we have.

That being said, I want you to think about how you would like to spend your time. Do you see yourself doing what you would like to do? Do you see yourself doing what you know you should do? If you are, great!! If not, why is that? If it is simply because you hurt too much to do so, we can help you with that!!  It is what we were made to do. Let us do this for you!!

 

LeapYear

Such a strange occurrence, leap year. So many hours in a day, month, year and yet still some slip through the cracks. So many so, that there needs to be an extra day added every four years to make up the difference. Smarter minds than mine thought that up! I still have a hard time figuring it out even 45 years into my life. (Yep! I just gave away my age – don’t tell.)

What will you be doing with your extra day today? I am going to where my heart is. Long ago, Dynamics of Healing, and the mission to help people, stole my heart. The more I am at the clinic, the more I want to be at the clinic. There is a peacefulness there that allows me to see and think clearly. I look forward to, and cherish every moment I spend there. I know that when I am there, it is where God meant for me to be. I never knew that I had such a love for my fellow man, and helping my fellow man, until I saw how many people were hurting and needed help. My eyes lost their blinders at Dynamics of Healing. I thank God and pray daily that I will not lose my drive to help others.

I found where I belong, but U BELONG there too!

Do you have stiffness? Headaches? Numbness? Restricted movement?

OR

Maybe you would just like to run better? Garden more? Play with your grandkids? Could it be that you would just like to walk to the end of the block without taking a break along the way?

That is what Dynamics is for!!

Since my first blog post I have had many questions about what we do and how it works. Each person is different, so it is very hard to describe how it works, but I’ll give it a go! Connie and Sabrina meet with each person, and a course of treatment is decided upon, as well as duration of treatment. There will always be some hands-on therapy, even on the first visit. Generally, the longer you have had the problem, the more visits you will have. Each visit lasts from 30 minutes to an hour.

We are a ministry. We desire for everyone who needs care to receive it. To cover our expenses, we have a $100 suggested donation. Some can not give the full amount, others can give more, and there are those, who at this time in their lives, can give nothing. That is why we have our Go Fund Me account set up. Here is the link, if you have the same heart for caring for the needs of others as we do.  We would love for you to be a part of our ministry!!

So, this leap year, what are you doing? Are you sitting around hoping for the pain to go away? Are you waiting for the doctor to prescribe another pill? Maybe surgery is the next step? Or are you calling Dynamics of Healing (414.764.2871) and taking care of the problem at its source? I know which one I would choose. Oh, wait! I already did that!!

From small business to ministry …

Welcome to the first of many blogs for Dynamics of Healing!! I am not sure what to expect, or where the blogs will be taking us, but I’m sure, together, we will enjoy the ride! Here is what I am expecting: stories of everyday people with everyday ailments being healed, stories of joy, stories of sadness and stories that will pull at our heart strings. (Boy, I hope my writing can live up to the hype!) Mostly, let’s expect updates of what is happening at Dynamics of Healing.

Here is some trivia for you: Dynamics of Healing was not always Dynamics of Healing. It was formerly named Dynamics of Function. When it was known by its former monicker the clinic ran solely as a place to come for physical therapy. As the clinic grew, and as the people who worked in the clinic grew, so did their vision. The vision slowly started to take in the whole person: mind, body and spirit. An understanding of the whole person was beginning to emerge, and how the three were linked together. When anyone of the three are out of whack, it creates an opening for pain and illness. It was our desire to help bring people to their fullest level of healing rather than just functioning in life.

Dynamics of Healing is not a small business, it is a ministry. It is of the utmost importance to us that everyone receive the best care possible, no matter how much money they have or whether or not they have insurance. For these reasons we have removed the obstacles of insurance and money. How can this be, you might ask?

We run our ministry on the kindness and generosity of our patients and people who have the same heart for caring for others that we do. If you would like to be a part of our ministry you can contribute by way of our Go Fund Me account.

It has been a year since we changed over to this way of running the clinic. While it has not been completely smooth sailing during this year, we have grown in our dependence of God. It is only with Him guiding and reassuring us that we have even made it this far. During this past year there have been many obviously God given blessings of both money and healing. People who should not be walking are walking, necks that should not be turning are turning, and people who saw themselves as disabled have a new lease on life. This is what comes from, trusting and believing God when he says, “I got this!”

The phones are ringing off the hook. Between our scheduled appointments and walk-ins many people are seen everyday. The word is spreading about the healing and peace felt here. Come experience it for yourself!
