Understanding Intuitive Well-Being™

Imagine a life that just flows with spontaneous energy and joy.  Leaving the “should, would, could” world behind.  Existing as unrestrained creativity and energy;

  • surrounded by people you enjoy,
  • experiencing you occupational pursuits as an expression of your life’s meaning,
  • navigating the challenges of life, recognizing that the process of overcoming them provides your guidance in reaching higher levels of joy and influence.

That is Intuitive Well-Being.  Living a life where physical, social, emotional, financial, and spiritual success flows as an expression of your life.  The state of being whole and complete in all areas without the distraction of that “inner conversation” wearing you out and holding you down.

Once you have achieved a spontaneous, ongoing success you have achieved tiena, a term derived from an Eritrean word meaning “whole and complete physically, emotionally, socially, financially and spiritually.”

How do you get there?  The path is as individual as you are, but often it includes;

  1. Unconscious incompetence (I didn’t even know it was possible), through
  2. Conscious incompetence (I know it is possible, but I don’t know how to get there yet), to
  3. Conscious competence (Success occurs with significant effort, to be lost if not contemplated upon), to
  4. Unconscious competence or intuitive well-being (the state of Tiena) – I am competent and no longer have to think, it just flows in my life).

Would you consider working towards higher levels of mastery of intuitive well-being in your life?

If the answer is yes then post on this blog and consider reading The Seven Healers. Being committed and aware – contemplative in the effort will result in continual joy and tiena in your life.   I look forward to the journey together.

Free at Last, Free At Last, Thank God I am Free At Last. Time to head home (the Medical Home)

I am overjoyed (and greatly relieved) that I can now report that I am a “free agent.” I met with Dr Stoltz last Thursday and, at this point, I am no longer associated with Medical Edge or Texas Health Physician Group and will not be opening an office with them.

So it is time to get down to brass tacks and figure out what we are going to do.  As all of you who know me well appreciate I am absolutely committed to

“Adding years to the life and life to the years of individuals, corporations, systems and nations to empower intuitive wellness.”

There will be two aspects of this pursuit for me – clinical practice and creating an Accountable Care System that empowers the Accountable (or Activated) Patient.

In the clinical practice I am committed to finding and growing old with a group of patients who too are committed to living a great life – reaching 100 years of age with vitality and joy.

What does not work for me in the practice is running in and out of rooms 15 minutes at a time until I am exhausted.  This model does not work – the American Healthcare System has proven this without a doubt.  So here are some basic to consider;

  1. One on one, face to face visits will be necessary for part of the time.  But guiding, directing, supporting, and coordinating the effort is as or more important to the process of attaining intuitive wellness.
  2. Creating a medical home with opportunities like group visits, on line visits, telephonic care, and having other members of the team like dietitians, exercise specialists, social workers, pharmacists available to us are also vital.
  3. Working with a great physicians assistant and/or nurse practitioner (and at some point additional doctors) as a part of the team will add tremendous value to the practice.
  4. Finally, the freedom to speak with the specialist or go to the visit when it could/would contribute greatly to your health cannot happen when I am running room to room but may be vital at times to your health.

So now we start building a new model.  The first thing is building the team to get the logistics of starting a practice accomplished.  Not glamorous but necessary.  let’s start with one foundational person; an organized, capable, motivated individual with some healthcare background (possibly an MA or nurse) who would like to run with the ball and create this enterprise.   Do you know this person?  If so, asap please send me their contact information to drscott@scottconard.com

Secondly, this individual will need some help.  Would anyone be willing to volunteer to help with basic tasks ranging from filling out forms to running errands?  It will take a village to create the ideal medical practice for our community, but and now we have the green light for go and we can proceed!

I miss you and look forward to seeing you soon in our new facility.
