Lightening bugs let you know that summer has arrived and regardless of age they generate a smile and sense of awe. What makes lightening bugs so intriguing is that they make a light within their bodies. Through the process known as bioluminescence they internally light up to attract a mate. The special cells within their abdomen allow them to illuminate, thus becoming more attractive and more noticeable. Illumination is an unspoken communication to let possible mates know if they are or are not interested in mating. Bioluminescence is innate to the lightening bug and other organisms and is a dominate form of communication.
Since February, I have done a dozen EPOCs and COREs across the nation. I traveled coast to coast, been to small towns and large cities, and spoken to a wide variety of audiences full of chiropractors and their support teams. Regardless of the city I was in or the size of the crowd that I had attracted one thing was always the same, the feeling of innately knowing the crowd had had a pivotal shift. Whether I am sharing my heart in front of thousands or one-one with a practice member, when the light bulb goes off I know they got it!
People are no different than lightening bugs, while we don’t physically illuminate since we are not innately adorned with the process of bioluminescence, we still light up when we get a cellular shift. I love looking into the eyes of someone, connecting with them, and innately knowing they were different just moments before. The innate ability to create a virtual luminescence is an intimate and silent form of communication, that says “I got it. Thank you.”
At the end of the day, whether in the office, out and about, or having just shared with a crowd I always reflect and re-hash to see the days success and continually make the necessary changes in my behavior and dialogue to constantly serve at a higher level. To me the more “lightening bug moments” I saw in my day the more successful the day. And the beauty of my lightening bugs is that they live year round, rather than being seasonal. Just like the lightening bugs in nature, the lightening bugs in my life bring a smile to my life, elevate my happiness, and allow me to feel innately successful at the end of the day; they awe me.
Beginning to see the lives of the people I touch on a daily basis as lightening bugs has allowed me to have a deeper appreciation for innate and it’s abilities. I love that that my “lightening bug moments” have allowed me to know silently that their was an innate shift within a given individual. This small shift in my perspective has made an immense impact on my life and level of service. Start looking for the “lightening bug moments” in your life and just like when you were a child, sit back, smile, and be awed.
