Have you ever felt
that your body just didn't want you to do something, or have you ever felt
totally compelled by your body to act or behave in a certain way?
Muscle testing is a technique that has been around for hundreds of years. It is
based on the idea that your body know what it needs, if you will just let it
tell you. You can muscle test for food allergies, medicine compatibility with
you, negative thoughts, areas of the body which are injured or hurt, negative
The human body works much like a computer. Every
individual function of your body is either off or on, weak or strong. Your
body knows, at any moment, what is weak or strong for it. By use of a simple
muscle test, you can test for strength or weakness, and you can determine what
is going on in mind and body.
Muscle Testing is also referred to as Applied Kinesiology. Chiropractors use
it to find which parts of the body need adjustment, and to check if an
adjustment has been successfully made. They use it combined with elaborate
knowledge of the skeletal and muscular system. If one touches certain key points
of the body and at the same time tests if a certain muscle is weak or strong,
that can indicate if that key point needs correction or not.
The interesting thing is that muscle testing works just as well on mental or
emotional issues as on physical body parts. Basically one can put one's
attention on something and then test for a weak or strong response. That is
something we can use.
See, the body is not as much of a liar as the conscious mind is. It is much
more likely to give an honest assessment of what is going on than the person's
analytical thinking is. 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.
Arm Muscle Testing - With toes pointed in, raise your
right arm to shoulder level, and hold it strongly there. Have someone try to
push it down. This should test strong. In other words, your arm should stay
up. Think a negative thought, any negative thought, and have someone test you
again. This is your weak response. You can use this technique to test foods,
medicines, or strengths and weaknesses within you own body.
Finger Muscle Testing – With toes in, put your thumb and
forefinger together, and intertwine your other thumb and forefinger inside this
loop. Hold fingers tightly but without effort. Then muscle test for strengths
and weaknesses by trying to pull your hands apart. If they fall apart easily,
that is a weak response.
You can muscle test for things simply by thinking about
them. Just think the question, and muscle test mentally. You will feel if it
tests strong or weak. Direct a question verbally or mentally to the subject or
to yourself before you test.
