Navigating The Polarity of Painful Experience

IMG_9176

Five years ago today, without even realising at the time, I began my journey towards Kinesiology. My journey arose out of a very painful experience.

If you ask any Kinesiologist how they came to Kinesiology, each story is unique & varied, but most often, it has been from a profound personal experience.

I feel that this is how we each facilitate our clients in our own individual way & why clients are attracted to seek Kinesiology from specific individuals.

We all go through painful experiences, whether it’s something physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, energetic or otherwise.Through my own experience & those of my clients, it feels like often we gain the greatest understanding, growth & expansion, through those times.

There are however, always positives in every situation, no matter how negative or harsh it may seem – although it certainly doesn’t feel like it at the time!!!!

IMG_9106

There are opportunities to grow & approach things through greater awareness & an openness to receive help & make new choices.

I am abundantly grateful for every situation & challenge presented over the last 5 years (and before of course, but for these purposes, I’ll stick to this time period).

Each situation & challenge has demonstrated to me where & how I can grow, showing me how I can respond differently, more in alignment with my true self, to help myself through, rather than hindering me & getting in my own way.

I am also abundantly grateful to each person who has joined me for part of, or all of this healing journey over the last five years. I feel honoured to be in the company of people (both professionally & otherwise), who have offered wonderful insights, love, nurture & wonderful friendship.

Often these people don’t know how much a kind word or action, one simple thing has helped dissipate a situation profoundly!!!

And, I am grateful to myself for asking for help & opening myself up to allow myself to receive it!!!!

I saw something on Facebook that really hit me:

I didn’t need you to fix me. I needed you to love me while I fix myself”

One of my aims, both professionally & personally, is to hold a space of love for people, whether I am actively helping them, or just being there, laughing with them or crying with them. All those polar opposites & everything in between.

To hold a space of love.

Clearing Out The Leftovers

IMG_8496

I am often amazed, challenged, inspired & sometimes dazzled about the things that can come up in a Kinesiology session. For my clients, but also for myself.

I had a session last week, which was phenomenal. Most of what came up in this session was quite unexpected, the balancing techniques needed were awesomely varied & the results enlightening, exhilarating, producing a profound sense of freedom.

Now, many of the issues that came up were old ones. The stuff I thought I’d dealt with.

One of the major lessons I have learnt about old stuff resurfacing & Kinesiology, is that it will come up in different ways, in varied layers & only when we are ready for the next layer to be cleared.

My Kinesiologist last week lovingly called this “leftovers”.

The term “Leftovers” is absolutely perfect in describing what came up.

Many of my clients, in session, when a particular issue or person or theme comes up, will say,

“But I’ve already dealt with that!!!”

I do too.

We often have particular things that will keep coming up in different sessions, because there are many layers of clearing needed to release different aspects of dealing with the issue, person or situation.

Human beings, in fact all life forms, are constantly seeking balance, harmony, equilibrium. The Chinese view the whole Universe as Yin/ Yang. Each has a polarity, but needs each other to be a complete unit. Neither Yin, nor Yang can stand alone. Our physical, mental, emotional, spiritual & energetic beings, when out of balance, will often look to the opposite extreme, the polarity to find balance.

In Kinesiology, we have many many techniques which utilise these principals.

We actually call a Kinesiology session a balance!!

In the world we live in, nature functions in a spiral manner. So there is always giving & receiving. This type of energy is all around us & inside of us. There is a delicate balancing act in order for us to feel stable, grounded, connected. There are polarities, negative & positive energies which need to be in harmony.

Both our inner & outer worlds work with spiral energy.

In our outer environment, the weather patterns, the currents of the oceans, the solar system involve spiral patterns of giving & receiving.

In our inner environments, our DNA, our fingerprints involve spiral energy. Our thoughts, actions, emotions, all involve patterns of giving & receiving in our actions.

So in reference to the “leftovers”, in life we often stumble over the same or a similar kind of lesson. We go through several stages of growth with everything we do, in a spiral pattern.

So rather than thinking or feeling like we are going around in circles, we can approach this from a perspective that we are on a spiral path of awareness.

On our spiral pattern of growth, we may hit a roadblock. As we learn the next stage of a lesson, we are able to pass that point on the spiral in a more gentle & easy manner. And clearing these roadblocks allows us to learn new aspects of a lesson & move towards where we want to be with less stress.

The thing I find most fascinating about these “leftovers”, is that the reason they came to the surface in this way, was all because my body didn’t want to take a supplement for my adrenals!!!! The need for the supplement came up in a previous balance to increase energy levels.

The irony is, my energy levels were being depleted on an energetic level, (not at first on a physical level), because of these “leftovers”. So my body has been trying to process the “leftovers”, through increasing physical energy, but not allowing itself to because of the energetic ‘leftovers’.

All aspects of my being needed to be balanced to allow the processing to happen, so I could feel more energised.

Well, I had to laugh!!!! Actually, we both had a laugh, a good laugh about it.

The energy of these “leftovers” was circling around, circling around, until it found the right avenue, the right pathway to progress. To progress along a spiral path of growth, rather than a path of going around in circles.

Do you have any issues that seem to keep going around in circles?

The Expectation of Joy: A Balancing Act

IMG_8635

 

Last Sunday, I happened to go into a park to eat my lunch & I was pleasantly surprised to find a couple of ducks with about 12 babies, wondering around, going about their business. I was inspired.

I had my camera with me & took many many shots.

The sun was beaming down beautifully, making the water glisten & sparkle with fairy lights. There were an array of the smells of spring filling the air. It wasn’t too cold or warm. There were other people around & other ducks & birds too.

I was watching this little family unit & their dealings in their environment. The little ducklings were going about their business, finding things in the grass to eat, having a swim, struggling to climb back out of the pond. All the while, Mama & Papa duck were keeping an eye out. When a child or adult, or another duck would get to close, Papa would assume attack position & charge. It was rather amusing.

IMG_8513

This was a wonderful encounter with the unexpected.

On the flip side…..

Things come up that can throw us off balance. That shake our world. As human beings, we all have expectations. For me, the issue with having expectations, is what I go through when what I am expecting either doesn’t happen at all, or happens in a different way.

Now I don’t know about you, but this happens with me in varying degrees. There is a scale from, “OK, I can deal with this”, to “Oh no, my whole world is falling apart!!!” And anywhere in between.

So for me, most recently, I experienced the:

“Oh no, my whole world is falling apart!”

I realised the next day that it wasn’t that bad, but I had made it that bad, mainly with negative self talk, but also because my expectation for this event was incredibly high. I had placed a lot of time & energy into the expectation of this experience.

A few months ago, as part of my Kinesiology training, we covered a unit about Codependency.

Codependency can be seen as an emotional & behavioural condition which affects your ability to have healthy, mutually satisfying relationships. Codependents will often have low self esteem & look for anything outside of themselves to make them feel better. This can become a cycle of feeling powerless in your own life. We are often trapped by feelings of deficiency.

Sound familiar anyone?!!!

Us humans, we are codependent. We need human interaction. This can have a functional side – being there for someone, listening, sharing both the good & bad, and it can also have a dysfunctional side, in my case, a need to be needed.

In kinesiology, we work with this to become aware of your codependent behaviour, to elevate responses & shift towards better self care & self responsibility.

First step is awareness & the second step is acceptance.

When we can shift to a state of more independence, we can move from thinking we are not enough, or deficient, & more towards self love. To feel that it is safe to be me. To thinking, ‘I love myself the way I am’.

Interdependence is where individuals interact for mutual benefit with mutual love, respect, trust, interconnections & compassion. In a society we are each interdependent – others depend on me to do my job & I depend on others to do theirs.

Interdependence allows you to feel more in choice, living from spirit & higher self. We can say what we want without expectation, we can stay connected with someone & remain independent at the same time. This is where I would like to get to on a more permanent basis!!!

In the past, my need to be needed has at times been compulsive, like an addiction (Addiction to Distraction) I used to want to rescue people all the time. This need of mine not only didn’t serve me, but it ultimately didn’t serve others either.

I have since worked through many of those issues, however, those needs still do pop up. I have come to a place, most of the time, where I am more aware of them now, & can step in more towards independence & interdependence.

I have noticed a link between my need to be needed, my codependent tendency, the expectations that I have & the energy I put into those expectations. Not just expectations of other people, but of things & events as well. I have also recognised my tendency to look to things outside of myself to help me through, like this event.

Do any of you recognise any of these things in your interactions with people?

“No person, place or thing can give you happiness. They may give you cause for happiness and a feeling of contentment, but the joy of Living comes from within.”

Genevieve Behrend

I saw this quote around the same time I went into my “Oh no, my whole world is falling apart!” experience. It helped me to understand that all that energy of expectation in this event was about the joy I was bringing to the event, not the event itself.

And I can bring that same expectation of joy to anything. Because it comes from within. Not from people or events outside of me!!!!

I found my joy of living, quite unexpectedly on that Sunday, observing & photographing this family of ducks. I observed the healthy codependent interacting of these ducks within their environment & within their family unit. The interdependence between them. The independence of the ducklings as they wandered off on their own, maybe always knowing Mama and/or Papa were nearby. Them knowing when they’ve strayed too far, that maybe they still need their parents for certain things & at the same time their parents simultaneously giving them both freedom & independence. Allowing them to grow & thrive as they will.

They were an inspiration of interdependence in action!!!

IMG_8523

At the moment, I reckon the majority of the time, I am in independence – self love. I do dip into codependency – in a dysfunctional way. And what I am finding is that now that I know another way, it seems worse to step back into that role of needing to be needed.

I must say as well. There are people in my life who aren’t aware of my changes towards self love, even if I have spoken to them of my journey, who still treat me as though I am more in codependency. I am not sure why, maybe that’s how they will always see me. It takes extra energy with those people to maintain my new state. But I choose to do so.

Be prepared. When you make these kinds of changes in your life, some people, whether they are conscious of it or not, still need you to stay as you were, even if they say otherwise!!!! There is no fault here. It just is. 

These changes in behaviour are less than easy & as always, you have a choice.

A choice to stay as you have always been, or to change, expand, grow & eventually achieve a more permanent state of balance.

Full Moon July 31st 2015 – Blue moon

IMG_8404

Have you seen the moon tonight?!!!

It’s awesome – see above photo…

So we are at the 2nd Full Moon of July this year. This means its a Blue Moon. There is a lot of other planetary stuff going on at the same time. I am certainly no astrologer, but I am most definitely affected by it all. There are 6 planets in retrograde. Basically bringing up lots of old stuff.

Full moons are a time for releasing things that no longer serve you. Anything from a relationship, to a food habit, to a blockage to abundance.

I like to make a list. Each statement usually starts with the words:

I release…”

Examples: I release all that no longer serves me

I release worry about money

I release attachments to outcomes.

So time to tune in, reflect & put that intention out there to release. I usually write my list, go out to the moon at the time it is fullest – 8:42pm, ask for the energy of the full moon to help me release & I repeat my list 3 times. I always pick some crystals to help me as well.

Give it a try, or do your own thing. You can use the energy of the moon to help you in whatever way you desire.

Enjoy xxx

In The Absence of Presence

129506850848509049

I used to dance. Actually for most of my life I was a dancer. I was also a choreographer. I never really got paid much for it. I mainly did it for the love of it. It was the only was that I could truly express myself. In fact I loved it so much, I eventually moved to London to dance for a couple of years & got to experience classes, shows & workshops with some awesomely inspirational people.

In 2007, as part of my final year of a Bachelor of Arts in Performance Studies, I choreographed my final piece. It was called “In the Absence of Presence”. At the time of choreographing it, I thought it was about myself & my partner at the time living in different countries for an extended period of time & how difficult that was.

However, looking back, there was always this little niggling feeling underneath it, that it wasn’t really about that. Which I chose to ignore. At the time I believed the relationship was something that it wasn’t.

Three years later, that 13 year relationship ended, in quite a shocking, heart breaking way, leaving me quite a mess, in quite a similar fashion as I have been lately. This break up also lead me to Kinesiology, so there is always light at the end of the tunnel, but I digress.

Another year or so later, I came across a flyer for “In the Absence of Presence”. I realised that the piece was never about me & my ex. It was about feeling absent from parts of me.

Now that was a massive revelation!!!!!!

And even now, with all the growth & change I have been experiencing, I am finding I am getting to another level of awareness of how I have been doing the same things. Trusting that the people around me, in my environment, know what is for my highest good. In that relationship, I believed my ex knew what was for my highest good, people now, the same thing, I have been putting faith in them & their truth above my own.

At the time I created “In the Absence of Presence”, I believed my ex’s truth SHOULD be my own. That was my awareness at the time.

Imagine my shock, disappointment, hurt & sadness to discover I am doing the same type of thing to this day. I have had a core belief that the truth of the people around me SHOULD be my own. And this is something that I am still working through & still feel shocked, disappointed, hurt & sad.

But little by little, step my step, I am gaining more awareness.

What really started me on this most recent path of new awareness, was my most recent Kinesiology session. Just looking at things from one level, my Kinesiologist was able to tap into a perspective that I hadn’t even considered for my situation at all.

It got me thinking. How often are we around the same people, with the same approaches to things, in the same environments? (This includes our own perspectives!!) How do we know when perhaps we need a fresh perspective? How do we know if perhaps our environments & the people in it (including ourselves) may actually be wanting us to stay in a particular way, because that’s what we know, that’s what the people around us know, & it may be serving a purpose. Others may need us to stay the way they want or need us to be, even if it is not for our highest good.

How often might we come across something or someone from our past & realise with a fresh perspective, what may have been going on underneath it all? Like coming across my flyer.

By the same token, is there a part of me that wants me, my environment & the people around me to stay as they are, because it is what I know, even if it isn’t for anyone’s highest good?

If this is the case, why? Why do we do this?

I find that this happens with my own Kinesiology clients as well. That even though there may be chronic pain, anxiety or other ongoing issues, there is a part of us that knows ourselves I like this & wants to remain the same, safe in what we know.

A part of us that maybe knows that once we have the awareness, change & growth inevitably follows. This can be scary…the unknown!!!

As one of my clients said, “Do I want to work that hard for something or someone?”

 

So how do we grow within this? Are we even aware of how we are keeping ourselves in a particular state of being? As with me in my session, my awareness was absent. Absent of some limitations I was putting on myself, how my environment & some people around me felt limiting. It was a bit of a shock to realise this absence of awareness, this absence of presence in my existence. Again!!!

I have been separating myself from the dancer part of me for a long time. For too long. I have been limiting myself with excuses:

  • I am so much older
  • All my injuries have come back to haunt me
  • I am not dance fit
  • Actually I’m not fit full stop!!!
  • All the contemporary classes – which are my thang, are on the other side of town.

So…..limiting myself. Silly jordie.

In my kinesiology session, one of the things we worked on was being free to be me. About releasing a cage around my heart from when I was five. I had separated my emotional self because it kept getting rejected. I have been told through my life that I am too emotional, too sensitive, too intense. What I have realised is that I need to embrace it, welcome it, to own it.

Instead of rejecting myself for it. Maybe in accepting & owning that I am emotional, myself & others wouldn’t see it as a negative thing.

I had put limits on my emotional self being free.

So now I am posed with the question of what do I want to create? Do I want to continue to limit myself with how I can get back into dancing now? Or do I want to allow my focus with dance to be as it originally was. To express my true self. To move because I enjoy it, it brings me joy, allows me to expand in the physical sense of the word.

And if I allow myself to create expansion with dance expression, with the expression of how I truly feel, can I allow that intention to flow into creating that true expression through other aspects of my life? To feel the presence of all parts of me, not just the ones that I or someone else deem to be acceptable, but all parts. With no absence of presence.

I have found a couple of adult classes. The next step is to go & experience them with no expectation, and with the intention of feeling the joy of moving in this way again.

As with the awareness, one step at a time.

Ask yourself if you have ever felt those underlying niggling questions or doubts about a person or a situation.

Now ask yourself, what do you want to do about it? What do you want to create? Are you thinking, feeling, behaving in a way to create the life that you want?

Are you aware of what you want to create for yourself?

Addicted to Distraction

IMG_8226

I’ve been thinking quite a lot lately about the nature of addiction. About what we get addicted to & why we get addicted to it.

I have been a smoker & I used to drink Coke – both addictions. Both things that are considered to be an addiction as such. An addiction to a substance.

But what about all the other stuff?

Have you ever considered that a behavior can be an addiction? Or even an emotion could be an addiction?

Isn’t it more about the need for something? The need to maybe cover up something? The need to possibly not face our emotions?

For the past few months I have been going through a pretty major transformation. This last weekend was incredibly difficult, challenging & revealed to me some things.

I do this thing to cover up my feelings of inadequacy, loneliness, lack of self worth. I set up time with people to do stuff, or even on my own, to distract. I also have a bit of an addiction to over thinking.

So what do you do when plans get changed, people have other things that take precedence & all your plans to actually help yourself through a situation fail? When you recognize you actually need help & maybe making arrangements to do something with people is a way of asking for it without asking for it?

You are left to rely on yourself, as I was. And I am finding this happening more & more lately. Its like the Universe is saying to me, “Deal with this alone.” And sometimes, like this weekend, I just don’t have the energy or strength to deal with it alone. I have felt that strength to do it alone has been less than easy to maintain.

I have no solutions here, no magic potions, no ground breaking way through.

I guess I’m just wondering how many of us go through this? How many of us do all we can to help ourselves, only to find those things not working, or changing. And then not knowing what to do.

In my case, I’ve been looking outside of myself for help. There is my addiction to distraction. But maybe there is also a fine line between finding the strength from within to help yourself & recognizing when you do actually need some help, maybe just someone to listen, someone to be there to cry on their shoulder, someone to go to a playground with & play on the swings, to be silly.

Maybe, there are times when I just don’t know what I’m supposed to do.

So when is distraction too much distraction? Distraction has been great for me to stop over thinking. But I guess as has been shown to me this weekend, when I rely on things or people outside of me to help me through too much, it can become more of an addiction.

The irony is, I work with addictions in my Kinesiology work. So maybe this is all being shown to me so that I can have more of an understanding about the root causes of an addiction, and help my clients with their addictions on a more in depth level.

Often addictions to substances cover up other addictive behaviors. So in my case take away the addiction to smoking & drinking coke – which took a lot of work to get through, & the behavior is still there.

Addictions are ways to avoid unacceptable feelings. We can become driven by them. Our life is no longer a conscious choice. Our freedom is absent.

Addictive behaviors are mood altering – whether its food, drugs, alcohol or in my case distraction, it is mood altering. It helps manage my feelings.

The life damaging aspects to an addiction or compulsion:

  • It causes personal dysfunction
  • It blocks you from getting your needs met through your own human powers
  • It takes up all your energy
  • Your choices are narrowed
  • Your freedom is lost
  • Your will becomes disabled
  • You become driven to the addiction/ compulsion
  • Your life is powerless & unmanageable

Kinesiology can help you work through these issues in the right priority, at the right time, in a gentle way to restore harmony to the soul.

The focus with Kinseiology is to bring back choice, rather than having a reaction to a situation, responding to it with choice & freedom. There is a reason we call a Kinesiology session a balance. Because it is about finding balance.

John Bradshaw, author of “The Family” states that in the family of an alcoholic,  everyone is driven by the distress of not having their needs met.

So do you think that maybe any addiction is about the distress of not having your needs met?

So as I have done this past weekend, ask yourself, “If I was free of this addiction/ compulsion what would I do?”

Is there anything you are trying to stop yourself from feeling? What are you using to stop the feelings? Is it cigarettes, alcohol, distraction, constant drama in your life, an emotion like anger?

Do you want freedom & choice? Do you want to feel like you have the power to help yourself?

Distraction has been an enormous help for me, but it has gotten to the point where I am relying on it to get me through. That is the recognition for me that it has become unhealthy. It helped me survive, but now it has become something that I am allowing to block my choices & sense of freedom. I am putting all of my sense of self worth into these distractions.

The behavior, the distraction, as I have realized, is the desire for connection, to belong. So whilst I have cleared what I would call the surface level behaviors – the smoking & drinking coke, I still have some work to do in these areas, to maintain a sense of connection with myself. So if I can feel & maintain that connection on the inside, it will reflect to me on the outside. I won’t need to distract from my feelings, because I feel that sense of connection, of belonging, of value, no matter what is happening on the outside. So I guess that is my journey towards emotional resilience.

Dealing with Difficult Emotions through Frontal/Occipital Holding

Frontal Occipital Holding

Can you think of the first physical response you may have when faced with a stress or emotional difficulty?

Do you recoil, do you cry, do you get angry? Do you ever simply put your hand to your forehead? Do you see other people doing this when stressed? It’s actually a very natural gesture that we human beings do when stressed.

It is also a very common tool used in Kinesiology when working through stressful memories, past or future events, emotional traumas.

Frontal occipital (F/O) holding is a very basic Kinesiology technique

It’s utilised  to talk through situations and emotional states. This technique is about giving a new perspective to an old problem.

In Kinesiology, I would place my hand over your forehead. This helps you access your emotional centre and your new and creative thinking.

Do you remember Mum doing this when you were upset or sick?!

It is a very natural healing, nurturing touch.

As an added bonus, in a Kinesiology session, I would place my hand over the base of your skull above the neck.

This area allows you to access your memories and also any blockages you may have about particular situations or events.

When bringing these past memories, traumas, blockages forward to the present, you can become emotionally traumatised again.

The brain triggers the same chemical responses as if real again and new events that trigger a similar response get filed in the same basket.

The F/O holding technique bypasses the extreme emotional cascade

It doesn’t deny the reality, fear or memory, but it allows you to look at it safely, while being plugged into creative, new open awareness.

It allows you to detach from or unhook from the past event and its emotional response from present functioning.

It also helps in acknowledging that things that happened and choices made bring you to a certain place in life. It’s an opportunity to recognise those choices may no longer be appropriate or in your best interest for today and to free yourself from reacting and take a pro active stance instead.

When you realise you do have a choice, you can harness your power of this awareness to make effective change in your own life.

This technique may help with various situations in which you may find yourself, including:

  • Feeling inadequate, unskilled or incapable of taking care of yourself
  • Needing a safe place to distance yourself from something distressing
  • Feeling unable to find a solution to a problem
  • Holding on to something or someone
  • Perpetually worrying
  • Feeling like you have lost your way
  • Feeling challenged
  • Feeling like you have little or no perspective

So if you ever find your self re-living a past event, or going through something in present time that is particularly stressful, stop for a second, put 1 hand on your forehead, the other on the base of your skull.

Talk yourself through it and let yourself be open to the possibility that your stress can be lessened and you can help yourself to heal.

What are you hiding?

meridians

When I’m working with a client in a Kinesiology session, there are certain signs that indicate there’s something your being is trying to hide.

I can feel it when it happens and I have a phrase that comes to mind: “Come out, come out wherever you are!!!!”

Kinesiology is awesome in this way. It won’t let those sneaky hidden issues remain hidden forever.

Sometimes in fact, the body won’t let us move forward, unless that thing is found and dealt with. And it IS safe to let it be revealed because NOTHING will come up in a session unless you’re ready to handle it.

We all have stuff we want to hide, that we want no one else to know about.

How often do we question how this pattern of hiding is serving us?

At some point in the past keeping certain issues hidden served us well, like a protection or defense mechanism. It was something that helped us survive.

However, we do outgrow old patterns like this and eventually they no longer serve us, and can even end up holding us back.

Do you ever find that these things can sometimes creep back into your life and say“Here I am! Deal with me!!!”?

How often do we say, “I don’t want to” or “I have dealt with that already, I don’t wanna go there again” (my favourite) or “I have moved on” or “I have put that behind me”.

This has come up many many times for my Kinesiology clients, friends, relatives and for me as well. The same or similar stuff. There are layers to all of these issues.

You may have done a tonne of work around a particular issue and find that it is still coming back to bite you on the bum over and over again.

One of mine that keeps coming back is everything surrounding the death of my grandmother when I was 11 years old. We all have them.

I feel so so honoured and passionate about my work, the more I practice and learn about Kinesiology.

One of the reasons why I absolutely love working with Kinesiology, not only for myself, but with my clients as well, is because Kinesiology explores every aspect of you to find the root cause of the issue and clear it from that level, to clear that layer.

This aspect may be emotional, physical, energetic, spiritual, nutritional, structural, stress related, to name a few, or any combination of aspects.

I have at my disposal a wonderful, ever-expanding range of tools that I use to help uncover the priority issues to clear for you as an individual, to help you resolve these layers of issues, including what may be hidden, either consciously or subconsciously.

The Meridian System

meridian-channelsOne of the tools used in some form in almost every balancing tool in the Kinesiology toolbox, is working with the meridian system.

Kinesiology uses principles of Chinese medicine to find where things are stored in your being, to explore what to do about them and how to go about clearing things up.

One of the main principles of Chinese medicine and Kinesiology is working with meridian lines: invisible lines of energy running through your entire being.

We have 14 main meridians. Twelve are connected to individual organs, muscles, emotional states, foods, amongst other things. Six of these 12 are related to yin energy and six to yang energy. The other two are like reservoirs, one for the six yin and one for the six yang meridians.

These meridian lines can be used to enhance our energy and vitality and help clear your issues.

There are numerous Kinesiology techniques to help you:

  • Experience energy shifts, to relieve pain where there may be an aspect of you that might be resisting feeling relief from pain, or where you may be resisting relief from emotional issues.
  • For jet lag, for shift workers or if you wake at 4:00am every night to use the bathroom or feel the need for sugar or caffeine at a certain time.
  • These issues can remain hidden because they happen at a certain time. Kinesiology has ways to reveal them so they can be dealt with.
  • Calm, ground and centre yourself and allow you to improve concentration when feeling overwhelmed.
  • Express something you may be hiding, so that it’s no longer a stress for you to do so.

These are just a handful of methods we can employ to help you in a Kinesiology session using the depth of the energies in Meridian Lines.

So ask yourself…

Am I ready to deal with my stuff? Even the stuff that is hidden?

If the answer is YES then contact Jordie for more information or book your Kinesiology session now!

Clearing sabotage programs with Kinesiology

IMG_3949

Do you ever have trouble making decisions?

Have you ever felt on the fence about an issue, or that you are taking both sides?

Do you ever feel like you want something, but maybe there’s also a part of you that doesn’t want it at the same time?

Many people will say in a Kinesiology session…

“But I want to be healthy/ lose weight/ express myself/meet a new partner!!! Why aren’t I doing it?”

This is your conscious self: the desire is there, but your subconscious creates blocks. The conscious mind controls between 1–5 % of your brain’s processing power.

So the other 95 – 99% is controlled by subconscious, unconscious, autonomic & automatic systems.

In Kinesiology, in order for you to move towards your goals, we tap into the subconscious to find what part of that 1 – 5 % of your conscious self is limiting you and your desire for change.

This is one way that Kinesiology is a very powerful tool for change.

Subconsciously you may believe you can have one thing, but not the other and the idea of achieving your goal can bring up subconscious fears.

Here are some examples:

  • Lose weight OR feel safe
  • Put yourself first OR be liked by others
  • Express yourself OR feel safe/liked
  • Meet a new partner OR stay true to me
  • Be your authentic self OR be part of a tribe

In Kinesiology, we work towards having both, for example, losing weight AND feeling safe.

Think about your conscious self like a glass of water. Now, think about your subconscious self like a dam.

The subconscious will bring to the surface what may be blocking you. The subconscious wants to keep your safe, almost like a ‘better the devil you know’ scenario. If you don’t feel safe, it can be less than easy to create change.

It’s a survival need. It can block you from achieving your goals.

You may feel like you’d like to change something – a habit, belief, pattern, reaction, however if you do then….fill in the blanks. The blanks are usually fears about what would happen if I didn’t have that habit, belief, feeling, pattern, reaction to fall back on, so that I can feel safe.

Most people have something like this going on – it is usually called a vice.

Do you have any vices?

Do you smoke? Do you drink? Do you reach for the chocolate or junk food?

Do you avoid certain situations?

Do you over-dramatise in certain situations?

Are you shy about expressing your true self?

In Kinesiology, we call these sabotage programs

They’re triggered by the need to survive. At one time a decision served you well or met your needs.

So reaching for that drink, cigarette, biscuit served you once. However, it may no longer be an appropriate response.

A sabotage could be seen as a ‘glitch in the matrix’. And that glitch is more powerful than your desire to create change, health, happiness, success.

A sabotage program inhibits the healing process, so they are quite a common occurrence within a Kinesiology session.

Those of you who’ve had Kinesiology will no doubt have had to clear at least one sabotage to achieving your goal.

Through clearing these blocks, we can work towards you achieving your goals, with greater freedom and ease.

If you say you can, you can, if you say you can’t you can’t. You are always right.

How do you talk to yourself and how does that affect you in your everyday life?

When I was about 14 or 15, I played competition squash. In one of my first matches, I was doing really well and feeling very confident. It was game point and all I had to do was win this point and I would win the match, best out of 3 games.

I made a silly mistake and lost the point. The way I spoke to myself after losing that point was horrendous. I then went on to lose that game, and then the next and then the next until I had gone from nearly winning 3-0, to losing 2-3.

With each point I lost, I was harder and harder on myself, I felt angrier and ashamed.

The words I said to myself, affected my performance

In our every day lives, we each have many roles – wife, mother, daughter, husband, father, son, friend, acquaintance, colleague, boss – I’m sure you can think of many more.

Our reactions and responses may vary widely depending on the role we are in. The amount of time or energy one role encompasses, or the demands of that role, may also vary and infringe on other roles, affecting our performance.

For example, if you have had a particularly stressful day at work, how may that affect your role in your family?

Our self image in a role is affected by our performance in that role and the things we say to ourselves in that role.

Our self talk about our performance has a powerful effect on our performance and is the most effective place to break the cycle of poor performance, poor self image and negative self talk about ourselves and our performance.

No matter if the performance was good or not, what we say before and after will affect our self image in that role

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking as when we created them.” Albert Einstein

If all you hear from yourself is critical, negative self talk, these messages you are giving yourself lower the level of your performance.

They create stress and increased effort and pressure to perform at a level that is satisfying for you. Because the disappointment of not doing better is so great, we’re upset with ourselves in that role and the result is a low self image.

We create a cycle of negative self talk, lowering our confidence, lowering our self esteem, our self worth and our energy levels. This cycle may ultimately lead to withdrawing from trying new things which help us to expand, learn and grow.

  • How many hats do you wear in how many roles in your life?
  • What are the responsibilities that go with those hats?
  • Do you feel that any of your roles infringe on any other roles?
  • How do you find a balance?

I will often explain to my clients, that a large part of what we do in Kinesiology is to relieve the stress in situations, so that you can function more at your optimum level.

We don’t deny or suppress what is going on, but we work with your circumstances to release the obstacles which may block you from achieving, in this case, your optimum self in each role, within each of the hats that you may wear, and help you to find a healthy balance.

There are many Kinesiology techniques to help to release you from cycles of negative self talk
