With kinesiology it is possible to determine what belief systems are blocking us from living a truly meaningful life and the causes for many of our diseases due to these imbalances.
Life is an adventure. Life can be fulfilling. Life can be so much more than just existing, but most of us are bogged down in the day-to-day ins and outs of striving to survive that we do not savour the wonders of being alive.
This endless struggle called ‘life’ then becomes overwhelming and disheartening, leading to an all-time high of people experiencing high levels of stress, depression, anxiety and diseases.
As human beings we are constantly measuring our current situations against an ideal. This ideal is formed based on experiences and belief systems. We feel discontented and depressed if our current life does not live up to our perceived ideal life. Today we are enjoying the highest quality of living. We have great jobs, huge houses, cars, TVs, laptops, freedom and safety, yet mental illness and diseases such as obesity, heart disease and cancer are at an all-time high. Is the reason for our discontentment with the life we are currently living because it is not in line with our true life purpose? Could the diseases that we are experiencing be the symptoms of this discontent?
Making a new year’s resolution is a conscious effort to improve our lives. The fruitless outcomes of new year’s resolutions are a common occurrence in society. Losing weight is one of the most frequent resolutions, yet the success rate of people who actually lose weight is minimal. There must then be something that is blocking us from living a healthier or fuller life, regardless of our resolutions to do just that.
Our inner knowingness is hosted within our subconscious mind where everything is permanently stored. All that we have ever experienced, said and witnessed is stored in the subconscious mind. From these experiences we create beliefs about what we truly deserve in life. Within our subconscious mind we develop, through our experiences, a belief of what we are worth, as well as what we ‘deserve’ to have in life. Here the foundation of our personality is formed. These beliefs are the result of lifelong ‘programming,’ and represent a powerful influence on our human behaviour. It is from our beliefs that we form attitudes about the world and ourselves, and from these attitudes we develop behaviours. Beliefs have far-reaching consequences, both positive and negative, in every area of our life. They affect our mood, relationships, job performance, self-esteem and even physical health. It is imperative that we identify beliefs which are limiting us and change them into beliefs that support us. However, the subconscious mind is just that, subconscious, and we are mostly not aware of the programs that we stored in our subconscious mind, yet they have a profound influence on our lives.
Your subconscious mind has what is called a homeostatic impulse. It keeps your body temperature at 37° Celsius, just as it keeps you breathing regularly and keeps your heart beating at a certain rate. Through your autonomic nervous system, it maintains a balance among the hundreds of chemicals in your billions of cells so that your entire physical machine functions in complete harmony most of the time. Your subconscious mind is subjective. It does not think or reason independently; it merely obeys the commands it receives from your conscious mind through your thoughts and experiences.
Your subconscious mind is an unquestioning servant that works day and night to make your behaviour fit a pattern consistent with your emotionalised thoughts, hopes, and desires. Disease is the result when these subconscious beliefs, which were formed throughout a lifetime, are not in line with your true purpose for this lifetime. Your subconscious mind also practices homeostasis in your mental realm, by keeping you thinking and acting in a manner consistent with what you have done and said in the past. When you have been told throughout your childhood that you do not deserve certain things, you might grow up being denied those very things that you so desire, as your embedded subconscious program will act out your program of ‘not deserving’ regardless of your best conscious intentions.
Determining the underlying programs and belief systems in the subconscious mind has always been complicated. During therapy our thoughts and beliefs are often addressed, but the underlying program responsible for those beliefs is not accessible as it is hosted within our subconscious mind, our unconscious mind. Manual muscle monitoring has shown to be able to access this hidden part of us and is now often used by the kinesiologist to access our bio-computer or subconscious mind. It is thus possible to determine what belief systems are blocking us from living a truly meaningful life and the causes for many of our diseases due to these imbalances.
Kinesiology —accessing our body’s bio-computer and the subconscious mind
Kinesiology is a holistic natural therapy which allows the therapist to communicate with the body’s innate intelligence through the use of gentle muscle monitoring techniques to determine and remove underlying stresses within the body’s different systems. As a holistic complementary therapy, kinesiology is used to treat a wide range of stressors and associated ailments on different levels. Discomfort, pain, illness and disease are seen as symptoms of imbalances or blockage in the vital energy system or life force of the person.
The idea is that each muscle group is related to a body part: digestive system, nerves and organs. How the muscles respond to different tests reveals the body’s functioning and helps locate imbalances.
While certain disease agents such as viruses and bacteria may play a role in the specific symptoms a person experiences, the holistic healing approach of kinesiology addresses the whole person and their life energy, allowing the natural healing system to function effectively. For the majority of diseases in life, the holistic approach of kinesiology allows for the individual to rebalance their life and energy. It is a very powerful and safe healing modality.
Based on the triad of health used in kinesiology, an individual is ‘healthy’ when they have a good balance between the physiological, psychological and anatomical aspects of the whole person. Health is defined as our ability to feel fully alive and vital, regardless of whether we are ‘sick’ or not. Health is not merely the absence of signs and symptoms, or society’s idea of normality. When we experience health we fulfill the role of the healthy person. We are working towards the realisation of goals and a sense of fulfilling our mission in life with some happiness.
We can be dominated by our past experiences, dragged down by failure, frustration or illness, or we can keep our eyes on a goal, have a hope, and belief that life is meant to be good.
Within the triad of health, all of the aspects are connected and part of one integrated whole which is continuously interacting. Where there is an imbalance in one aspect there is a corresponding imbalance in the other aspects. A kinesiologist will use muscle monitoring to develop an awareness of the energetic imbalances within the person. The tension you feel in your neck when things are ‘weighing you down’ can stay long after the problem has been dealt with. Remembering the situation or experience or a similar one reactivates your ‘old neck trouble’. The body becomes the visual expression of a person’s bio-computer. Our muscles exteriorise our minds for all to see. The muscles thus do more than just holding up our bones.
