This article has two parts. Part 1 is the understanding of Muscle Testing and in Part 2, we will explore the healing field of Energetic Psychology, and the Power of Conscious Choices.
Do you know that the body holds the knowledge of the universe right at our finger tips, that we have the capacity, the power to heal, and to choose a life that supports us the most? Indeed, each one of us possesses a computer far more advanced that the most elaborate artificial intelligence machine available – the human mind itself. What a stupendous mystery the human body is! 125 billion miles of DNA, 50 trillion cells each an individual, cooperating, communicating with the speed of light throughout our whole system, carrying the memory of the whole story of creation from the origin of the universe to us in this moment. It is sensitive to our thought and intention, and ready to evolve with our consciousness!
The body has an unlimited potential to create, transform and heal, and yet, many people go through their life accepting their current situation thinking they do not have any choice to “upgrade” their life. Actually we are made to intentionally co-create life in partnership with Source. We have the ability to choose how we live our life, not to let life simply happen to us.
Knowledge is power, and with the amazing emerging field of Bio-Energetic Medicine that combines ancient wisdom with modern science, we are able to access higher guidance through the innate intelligence of the body wisdom. There are many bio-energetics modalities available; the one I am writing about is Muscle Testing with the blend of Energy Psychology techniques such as EFT, NAET, TAT, and EMDR. Those methods bring current knowledge of the energetic nature of the body-mind-spirit connection and therefore give us more understanding in choosing what supports our well-being.
Muscle testing can access information that might not be available to the conscious mind, and with Energetic Psychology techniques we have the tools needed to clear issues and correct the energetic imbalance. Blending these powerful modalities, we can navigate safely through this critical time, releasing our past, and choose consciously that which supports our health and our environment.
So what is Muscle Testing (MT)? It is a non- invasive test method first developed by Dr. George Goodheart in applied kinesiology in the 1960’s. MT is a modality that can identify and clear physical and emotional imbalances on all levels of health and well Being. Muscle Testing exposes the intimate connection between mind and body, revealing that the mind “thinks” with the body itself. MT can discern to the finest degree the difference between healthy choices, that which is supportive of life enhancing, and that which is harmful to us. It is easy to learn and can be used by anyone at any time you need it.
More than Meets the Muscles. The uses of muscle testing are unlimited and self- directing. The testing can be done for you by another person or you can do it yourself using various techniques. Some are very complex methodologies while others are very simple. My favorite of all the techniques I’ve learned is the bio-digital O’ring testing from Dr. Omura MD, Professor Omura discovered the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test and acquired a U. S. patent for it. He is the medical research director of the Heart Disease Research Foundation.
In clinical practice I use MT to evaluate the state of general health and specific health issues. We identify nutritional status (vitamins, minerals, amino acid, neurotransmitters, glandular, hormonal imbalance) and establish dosage, compatibility. We also evaluate acupuncture trigger points, organs, and detect food and environmental allergies or sensitivities. With this information a personalized plan is created and implemented.
One of the great gifts of MT is its versatility. Muscle testing bypasses the conscious mind and therefore accesses the inner wisdom of the body. It can be used in unlimited ways for every aspect of our life, from the mundane to the most profound. This multi-faceted method can identify not only health issues but work, family, financial, environmental emotional stress, and belief systems that are or helpful detrimental to us.
How does muscle testing work?
The phenomenon of muscle testing operates through interactions between the internal energetics fundamental to traditional Chinese Medicine, bio-electrical reflexes, nervous system, muscle, ideomotor action, and sub-conscious mind. The involuntary response is measured when exposed to positive and negative stimuli. Consciousness is an invisible quality of life which has the unique property of reacting to a stimulus. If a true statement is spoken verbally or silently, the subconscious mind, the electrical and magnetic fields around the body actually becomes stronger and as a result an indicator muscle of the body also becomes stronger automatically in recognition of the truth. That which is true, beneficial, or pro-life gives a positive response. A strong muscle means a positive or “yes” response and a weak muscle means a negative or “no” response.
For example, if we place a substance on the body which is life-force enhancing, and thereby ensuring the survival of the body, the muscle response will be positive or a “yes” response. We are programmed for survival and love.
Conversely, if we place a substance on the body which is life force destructive, and thereby weakening the body, the muscle response will be negative or a “no” response.
When we say, think or hold something that resonates as false the subconscious mind, the electrical and magnetic fields around the body actually become weaker and as a result the muscles also become weaker.
For the first time in history, this revolutionary discovery in kinesiology testing was able to tell truth from falsehood about anything, anywhere in time and space. The test itself proved to be independent of personal opinion or belief. MT treats the subconscious body like a lie detector, and the response is immediate.
Even though muscle testing can take the guess work and trial and error out of choice/questions you may have, it is not a magic crystal ball. It is a skill. It supports healthy decisions about our health, increases our inner peace, enriches our relationships, expands our prosperity, and helps us to embrace life to the fullest.
The capacity to tell the truth from falsehood is of profound importance because that is precisely what the human mind lacks in making choices that support our well-being. In each moment we have been given the capacity to choose between love and fear. I am so grateful to have a tool that promotes self- empowerment, trust, and the power to choose a co-partnership with the wisdom of the Body/Mind and Soul that dwells within each one of us.
