I will explain the way it is generally used in the context I am familiar with from my training in energy work and from the chiropractors I know who use it.
And just to make a point and to show electrical energy in the body is real, just yesterday coincidentally, I played with something I heard recently in an interview I caught a segment of. The brain specialist said that you can use the electrical signals coming from your brain to open your garage or car when the signal isn’t strong enough coming from your remote to activate the door.
More on that in a minute…but first back to the meaning of kinesiology…
In a nutshell, the human body has an electrical system that is very much a part of the function of the human system. We don’t see it or think about it but it is there. And when things are in balance, and that even means that there is truth in a statement you make, your electrical system remains strong. When something isn’t healthy for you or when a statement isn’t the truth, your electrical system breaks down and the muscle goes weak just momentarily. If you are applying pressure on a muscle and know how to “test” for a yes or no answer, it will give you a “yes” or ” no.
Seems pretty amazing if you’ve never witnessed it yourself but it is absolutely true. That is referred to as applied kinesiology although many people simply call it kinesiology.
Now back to the remote control thing I mentioned earlier.
Yesterday I was out getting some exercise and as I approached my vehicle when I returned, I thought about what I had heard. So I pointed my car door opening device, clicked it and the door didn’t open. I held it to my temple, clicked it and the lights came on and the door unlocked! I moved it away from my brain and double checked it again and nothing happened! Try it and you’ll be amazed as I was.
So the meaning of kinesiology is that you have a pretty nice way to get answers to many of your questions if you learn how to ask your body and read its signals when they break down and cause your muscle to go weak momentarily.
I teach my coaching clients the meaning of kinesiology and how to apply it when working with their goals. It’s great for finding the best one to work with and anything you need to be consciously aware of that is a block to success.
It really is quite amazing what your body will tell you.
