I believe one
of the main reasons we exist is to become harmonious with our environment
and, in turn, experience the oneness with our Creator. There are
many pathways to source. This is the most direct conscious one I
have found thus far. We can use our own muscle strength to monitor
everything we want to know. Knowingness is to understand why - what
is. With this, one can engage in a process of "LETTING GO"
and move through blockages in our individual sacred pathways much
There are a lot of ways we can test the strength of a muscle. One
way is to bring one arm straight out in front of you and push down
with the opposite hand. And alternate way is to bring the thumb
and the index finger together and with the other hand pull through
that and see how much srength you have for the muscle test as far
as the strength of two fingers.
The one I like the best is pushing my index finger and my third
finger against each other. With this muscle analysis technique,
there is a certain way of thinking, that really helps a lot. These
two neighboring fingers up to this point have been mainly used for
utilitarian purposes. Now, you're going to enable them to assist
in a more creative way. The nerves going to these fingers need to
take on new diagnostic, informative and monitoring functions. Just
like learning how to ride a bicycle or learning to write, or any
new activity that you are going to learn to do in life, you need
to train yourself.
The nerves going to these fingers actually go up your arm into the
brachial plexus and into the spinal cord. The spinal cord proceeds
into your brain, and hooks into a part of your brain that will actually
help you function these two fingers. So, that part of your brain
is going to have to be taught what to do, when, and how to do it.
You are going to do the teaching. It's just a matter of programming
yourself and conditioning your brain to take on a new function.
Some people are able to learn this immediately, and some people
take four months to do it. But I guarantee you if you do it consistently,
you will get it. This "MUSCLE STRENGTH ANALYSIS" is a
really great tool because you can learn about yourself. It is a
way of setting up a dialogue with yourself and know much of what's
going on all the time on any level be it physical, nutritional,
emotional, acupuncture, homeopathy or infection. If you want to
be even more creative, you can figure out what your dreams mean.
It also can enhance your thinking in a more creative manner. The
process really makes you think about what true reality is. There
is always something meaningful to think about with purpose.
The index finger is the variable strength finger. This finger can
either be strong, or it can be weak. I like to see things in black
and white. Some people want to see all sorts of variable strengths,
but that is confusing to me. Either it's strong "YES"
or it is a weak "NO."
The pad of the third finger is pressing against the fingernail of
the index finger. This is the finger that has the constant strength
and is the finger that you are testing with. In analyzing something
that is not harmonious with you, such white, refined sugar (you
can hold the sugar or put the sugar on your tongue) the nerves going
from your tongue to your brain will provide the signal back to your
muscle to let you know if this is a strong or weak substance and
is evidenced by the corresponding strong or weak muscle. In this
case, sugar will provide you with a weakness. With this technique,
you can start training these nerves in your mouth, going to your
brain, what's good and what's not. These nerves really don't know.
The don't have a consciousness of their own. With most people, it
helps to start by telling one's self "this sugar is not good
for me" and consciously letting the muscle go
weak. In people with blockages, the brain doesn't know what response
to tell the nerves and muscles because they literally haven't told
the brain what's good and what's bad. So this is one good way of
training your brain to communicate with your nerves and muscles.
Put the sugar on your tongue. Test your fingers and if you don't
get a weak index finger response that you think you are going to
get, pretend. That is to say, let the index finger go weak.
It's just like learning to ride a bicycle. Some kids need training
wheels. This is where your pretend stuff comes in real handy and
it's fun. Just be sure in the beginning you have absolute conscious
knowingness of what is strong and what is weak that you are testing.
So in pretending the index finger muscle is weak, let it bend all
the way over, with your middle finger pushing it. You've got something
you know that's not good for you on your tongue, and you let the
muscle go weak. Then you get a piece of fruit that you know is good
and you taste that, and you say "I know this is good for me,"
and let the muscle of the index finger stay strong, or erect straight
out. What helps this is adding another mental dimension simultaneously.
Some people are more visually oriented with their mind. Some people
are more kinesthetic. (Muscle testing is actually kinesthetic, feeling,
touching). Sometimes your visual mind can tell you things that your
kinesthetic finger isn't going to tell you and sometimes your finger
will tell you things that your mind won't tell you. So it's nice
to have both and train your mind in being able to ask it questions
and come to conclusions that will give your fingers a correct response
and vice versa.
In your mind, as you are doing the Finger Test, I suggest you do
a visualization of a red and greeen traffic light, red being stop
or no answer, green being go or yes. You put the fruit in your mouth
and you know that's good food, and you visualize the stop light
being green. That's a positive "yes" strength. You relay
that information, or simultaneously let the finger be strong. Taste
the white sugar and see the red light in your head and coordinate
the two. You want to do this kind of testing and training in your
mind with every sense organ. With what you taste, hear, see, smell,
and thought -- all the senses. This is because each sense has it's
own ramifications in your mind to be able to govern what is strong
and what is weak.
If you can train all of the senses, then you will be able to program
your biocomputer a lot faster, and more thoroughly. Some people
need to practice four times a day for four minutes, for four months
before they really get it. Do all the senses every day at most any
free moment. You can think of something that's true, or that's false
and participate in this muscle strength analysis. Everybody has
a couple of minutes during the day, where they are not doing anything
or just relaxing, riding the bus or waiting for a stop light. It's
just a matter of being a little more efficient and putting the mind
to good use at any given moment that allows.
The nice thing about the finger analysis with one hand, is that
you've got the other hand free. So you can go into the store and
buy products, such as vitamins, and touch the product and see if
it's good or not. This is especially helpful in a nutrition store.
At least 25% of the products in a nutrition store is garbage. The
label looks good, but unless you know energy, unless you know how
to test the product there is really no way of telling. You get a
bottle, you pick it up and it may be strong. This is where it can
sometimes get really tricky. There is a "Law of Energy."
That is, if you have two weaknesses, and the two weaknesses are
touching each other, it makes a strength. What you want to do is
hold the top of the bottle where the nutrition substance itself
isn't located. Test it. If it's weak and then you hold the
bottle where the nutirition substance is and it's strong,
you know there's a weak nutrition inside the bottle. The weak nutrition
and the weak bottle are cancelling each others weakness out and
making a strength. Just like in Algebra, a negative number multiplied
by a negative number makes a positive number. Mathematics is one
of the rulers of the universe.
Another good use is to go to the grocery store and figure out "What
do I want to eat tonight?" What does my body want? It will
tell you, if it wants vegetables or protein, how much and when.
Just get your body what it wants. Let your spirit guide you. Tap
into higher consciousness. I believe we can live forever if we take
care of ourself properly. We have self-perpetuating mechanisms and
all we need to do is listen to our bodies and care enough to be
able to follow our inner wisdom.
We can take one hand and scan our body by pointing all our fingers
together toward an organ and if there is a weakness, your fingers
on the opposite hand you are testing with will display the weakness.
Your body knows everything subconsciously. If you do enough clearing,
you can ask your body why that organ is weak, "Is it physical?"
"Is it nutritional?" "Is it emotional?" "Is
it acupressure?" "Is it homeopathic?" "Is it
an infection?" With each question, do the finger muscle strength
Your body will tell it exactly what it wants. The correct answer
or reason why your organ is weak will display a strength. Again,
we've got two related weaknesses that cancel each other and provide
a strength. The weakness of the organ itself and the cause (physical,
nutritional, emotional, acupuncture, homeopathy or infection) of
the weakness make a strength. By sensing the cause by itself, you
can determine what can reverse the organ weakness. For example,
a misaligned bone causing a sore back is a muscle weakness which
can correspond to an initial cause, an organ weakness. The two weaknesses
make a strength. The organ by itself could show the initial cause/weakness
of a downward or gravitational physical displacement. Position the
organ upwards and you have regained a strength of the organ and
also strengthen the corresponding muscle, aligning the bone causing
the sore back.
The weakness is a physical weakness, you usually have to lift the
organ up and get it into place. If it's nutritional weakness, you
just eat whatever and however much herb, vitamin, mineral or protomorphigyn
that organ wants. If Homeopathic, you give that. Acupressure --
do Ti Chi or simply rub the point where your body tells you; top/bottom,
front/back. Ask and receive the body's input. If it's emotions,
it gets a little bit more trickier. Diffusion and transformation
is a whole seminar in itself. With "MSA" (Muscle Strength
Analysis), you can let go and eliminate stress by getting to the
cause, defusing it and transforming it. If you don't have stress
coming out of your body and you're a lot more clear, you can see
and realize things, the fog dissipates and manifestatoins do ensue.
