What is balance and how to achieve it?
In simple terms, balance is the smooth flow of energy throughout the meridian system. Energy balance is achieved when all the 14 meridians that run through the body are transporting an uninterrupted flow of energy, vibrating at the frequency necessary to achieve and maintain a state of optimal health.
In order to benefit from energy work, particularly Radiokinesis or Health Kinesiology (HK) work, it is crucially important that both the practitioner and the client be balanced at all times. Why? Because HK and Radiokinesis are based on the correct reading of the body’s responses through muscle testing (see article 2 of this series on muscle testing), so it is important to have balance to ensure correct answers to questions asked by the practitioner. Without balance, a practitioner is in danger of making mistakes concerning corrections, adjunctive, etc.
Magnets are the tools of choice to determine balance in the practice of Radiokinesis and HK. Magnets can only help determine if the meridians are out of balance, but they are not used to balance the meridian system. Magnets are used to determine if the body is in balance using as guidelines the earth’s magnetic field as it affects the orientation of magnets. Healthy body cells will spin counterclockwise. The south-seeking side of the body will force the cells to spin counterclockwise, making the body’s muscles stay strong during testing. On the contrary, the north-seeking side of the magnet will make the body’s cells spin clockwise, causing imbalance in the body’s energy system, and thus making the muscles go weak.
A trained practitioner will use magnets to determine if there is balance by asking the client to center their palm over their navel, because the navel is the center of all of the body’s energy. Then, the magnet shall be placed on the thigh muscle to check the body’s polarity. Bearing in mind that the SS will make the body respond strong, and the NS will cause a clockwise (imbalance) rotation of the cells, making the tested muscle respond weak, push down on the thigh muscle (with the foot lifted about 4 inches off the ground). If the body responds strong, the practitioner will flip the magnet and retest the muscle. It should be weak. If weak, the practitioner then flips the magnet again leaving the body strong. If there is balance, the SS side of magnet should be against the body, testing strong.
Once the practitioner has tested balance using magnets, and has discovered that he/she or the client is out of balance, it will be necessary to help the body to obtain balance, since it is not correct or beneficial to work without balance. There are various techniques designed to help obtain balance.
The practitioner shall first try to figure out if there is something causing the person to be out of balance. Use your common sense and ask if there is anything that needs to be added or taken away. Maybe the client is uncomfortable, needs a drink of water, or needs to use the restroom. Maybe there is too much or too little light in the room, a particular smell is disturbing. Since all elements have a frequency that can affect the energy of the body, adding or taking an element away might help to obtain balance.
Practitioners can use many tools to reach balance. In Radiokinesis, practitioners most of the time can achieve balance by using simple tools that affect the five senses. Sometimes, the practitioner needs to taste something, or smell an oil, and then retest for balance.
Alternatively, the practitioner might ask the client to place his/her right hand in front of the client’s throat chakra (without touching the body) and imagining green light going into the throat, while at the same time locating the left hand behind the neck —behind the throat chakra— imagining red light going into the neck. This position needs to be held for a few minutes. Balance is usually, but not always, indicated by a yawn. In any case, the practitioner shall re-test to confirm balance.
A third technique is tapping on the thymus in a counterclockwise motion. The client will tap for a few minutes by taking the right hand and putting it with the pinky against the chest over the thymus with the thumb pointing straight out away from the body. The fingers will be pointing counterclockwise and tapping is done in a circular motion. The practitioner will then re-test for balance.
In general, people who have not had much exposure to energy work will frequently go out of balance. Also, it is possible that during a session a client will be knocked out of balance by a certain question, painful memory, etc. This could indicate that the practitioner has lost the permission to work on the client. If balance cannot be achieved, the session would need to be concluded. In other cases, it is the practitioner who goes out of balance, because the person is tired, has done too much energy work without proper rest, or is being asked questions by the client that are making the practitioner uncomfortable. In those cases, the session would have to conclude.
