The dis-ease of a disconnected, divorced heart and soul can come from what you’re carrying around your neck…

Today I identify 5 things that you may be carrying around your neck, that are a symbol of what you’re carrying on the inside of you.

As a chiropractor, I’ve studied and worked with the spine and nervous system since the early 90’s. I know how important the neck is to life!


Because it holds the life giving spinal cord coming directly off the brain. It IS your life.

I can’t begin to tell you all the health problems I’ve seen over the years that can be traced back to what’s happening in the nervous system, due to what’s happening in the NECK.

The neck carries the equivalent of a bowling ball around all day long…every day.

But what about the other loads that you’re carrying around your neck?

Over the years I’ve said to countless numbers of patients: “You’re carrying around a load you were never meant to carry.”

Perhaps that’s you today…

What are you carrying around your neck?

1. A yoke of heaviness?
2. A leash of captivity?
3. A noose of neglect?
4. A rock of suffering?
5. A beautiful necklace of value and life?

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) 


Ask yourself:

1. What am I carrying around my neck?

Identify it today.

2. Where’s it coming from?

3. What are you going to do with this new insight?

You can take OFF whatever it is.

Free yourself, my dear!

Or, you can put on whatever you choose to wear today, but you’re the one who gets to decide!

By the way, I’m going to be inviting listeners onto the program. If you have a story you’d like to share — a song to sing (but not a Poor Me Story) — send me an email at: and put SHARE MY STORY in the subject line.
