(NaturalNews) There are almost fifty years of documented scientific research on a quick, easy and reliable method for testing whether something is true and under the circumstances whether it's good. As an example: should you eat animal protein? On the subject of animal protein versus plant foods there are countless studies on both sides with credentialed experts and excellent arguments. We have plenty of data but the difficulty is in the interpretation. Another question might be regarding the merits of a political candidate. Do they have their constituents' best interests at heart or are they in the service of a corporate sponsor? What if there were a way beyond your limited knowledge to know on any given subject if it were true, if it were good?
In 1964, George J. Goodheart invented Applied Kinesiology (from the Greek: Kinesis = movement) after finding that benign or beneficial stimuli increased the strength of certain indicator muscles, but harmful stimulation caused the same muscles to suddenly weaken. Dr. John Diamond refined the approach to Behavioral Kinesiology by testing emotional and intellectual stimuli. He tested abstract symbols and found that some caused a universally weak response while others gave a strong response. He tested different types of music, photos, and speeches and found consistent results of test subjects either responding with strength or weakness.
Dr. David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. used kinesiology to develop a map of consciousness. He developed a scale from 1 to 1,000 with 50 being the level of hopelessness and despair, and 600 being the level of peace, bliss and illumination. Mahatma Gandhi calibrated at 700 on this scale and Attila the Hun at 90. He performed multiple thousands of trials using kinesiology to rate the beneficence of religions, books, movies, food, environments, people, history, events and more.
How does it work
There is a field of unified human consciousness which is accessed by the body. The rational mind is included within the field as a limited portion. The body breathes, circulates blood, digests lunch, dreams, and responds to stimuli and it's all happening beyond the conscious awareness of the rational mind.
Have the subject stand erect with the right arm relaxed at the side. Hold the left arm out to the side parallel to the floor with the elbow straight and the wrist relaxed. It's OK to reverse the arms. The tester faces the subject and puts their left hand on the subject's shoulder for steadiness. Then the tester puts their right hand on the subject's extended left arm just above the wrist. To test the muscle strength the subject might say something that's a known truth
such as their age or name. The tester immediately presses down on the arm firmly (not hard) and evenly. Next the subject can make a statement that they know is false and the arm strength tested again. It should be clear that the muscles are responding differently to the statements and that the truth brings a strong response. The subject can hold an item and say something such as, "these eggs are healthy for me to eat."
Some people are able to get good results without a partner. Make an "O" with the thumb and index finger. When a statement is true it will be difficult to pull the 'O' apart. When results are false or harmful it will be easy to separate the thumb and forefinger.Sources for this article include:Power vs. Force
