Think of the individual human mind as a computer terminal connected to a giant database, the sum total of all consciousness. The process of accessing this database by utilizing the human body as the instrument to provide the information we are seeking, is “muscle testing” or “applied kinesiology.”
Applied kinesiology certainly seems like something out of a science fiction movie; however, the results can be verified and reproduced. The ability to quantify information gives the procedure legitimacy and it is now used by any number of professionals in healing work, both of a medical as well as an emotional nature.
Muscle Testing is the practice of applying a consistent force to a muscle in the body, in the presence of a defined stimulus, and observing the response of the muscle to the stimulus. In the 1960’s, Dr. George Goodheart discovered that muscles instantly become weak when the body is exposed to a harmful stimulus, and strong in the presence of a therapeutic substance. Later on it was discovered that these weakening or strengthening effects are also achieved by emotional and mental issues, as well as the physical. The procedure could be used to determine any number of issues and truths. Basically, one can put one’s attention on something and then test for a weak or strong response. This response gives insight into the validity of an issue with reference to the subject being tested.
The procedure is based on the premise that the body is not as deceitful as the conscious mind and is much more likely to give an honest assessment of what is going on than the person’s analytical thinking. The body will give answers to things that are submerged and unknown to the conscious processes and it will give answers without being biased by wishful thinking or social maneuvering.
Various muscles can be used for “Muscle Testing,” but the easiest to use is the big deltoid muscles or the arms. This is the classical, 2-person method of testing: the subject and the tester are standing upright or sitting upright. The subject stretches one arm straight out in front or straight out to the side. The facilitator instructs the subject to resist in response to the statement or question being proposed. The tester then presses down on the arm taking note as to whether the arm holds up to being pressed down or if it gives in and becomes weak.
Strong means “yes” and weak means “no.” Whether a yes or a no answer is most desirable depends on what we ask for, but most often we will ask in such a way that the response is positive. It is most important to be very precise. If the question or direction is sloppy or unfocused, the response will be confused. Therefore, in muscle testing, the question must be direct and not open ended in order that the muscle not be confused by what is being asked. For instance, “Will my new relationship work out?” is less preferable to “Am I taking the proper actions to make the relationship with name successful?”
The statement, “Vitamin X is good for my body at this time” will illicit a definite response (yes or no) from the subject whereas, “Vitamin X is good to take” will not provide significant information because it is not specific enough (by whom and when are not stipulated). After an initial reaction, tests can be continued until full and effective information with regard to how much Vitamin X or anything else for that matter, is disclosed through muscle testing.
The technique itself can be used by anyone, anywhere, at any time to validate information. We can discern in a moment the level of truth or empowerment to be had from a particular statement, concept or substance by muscle testing our very own selves.
Hold your non-dominant hand palm up. Bring together the tips of the thumb and little finger of that hand. The fingers can touch tip to tip, finger pad to finger pad, or thumb resting on top of the little finger’s nail.
The other hand will be the means by which you apply pressure to yourself. Place the thumb and index finger of the dominant hand inside the circle you have created by connecting your thumb and little finger. The thumb and index finger should be right under your thumb and your little finger, touching them. Don’t try to make a circle with your test fingers. They are just placed inside the fingers that do form a circle. It will look as if the circle fingers are resting on the test fingers.
Ask a question or make a statement. Using the same amount of pressure, try to pull apart the thumb and little finger connection with your test fingers by pressing the lower thumb against the upper thumb, and the lower index finger against the upper little finger. The action of your test fingers will look like scissors separating as you apply pressure to the circle fingers. The motion of the test fingers is horizontal. Don’t try to pull your test fingers vertically up through the circle made by the thumb and little finger.
If the circle holds, it indicates a positive response. If the fingers are able to break the connection of the thumb and little finger, a negative response is indicated. Some people’s fingers separate a lot; others’ barely separate at all. Some fingers don’t separate, but the subject definitely feels the fingers weaken when pressure is applied during a “no” answer. Using this tool, one can ask a question of the Universe and receive the answer through the muscles. It is crucial that a consistent pressure be maintained with the fingertips constituting the circle and also with the intervening fingers, on asking each question.
Muscle testing can provide reliable information about anything, as long as the tester or individual asks the right questions. What enhances our body, mind and soul makes us strong. Together our body, mind and soul create an environment that, when balanced, is strong and solid. If something enters that environment and challenges the balance, the environment is weakened. That strength or weakness can be discerned through the muscle-testing technique, a practice that isn’t magic, but certainly can qualify as being of a “mystical” nature.
