Step 1: Was I crazy? I am on the University pool deck pitching an idea for my thesis to my thesis Advisor who previously told me I could NOT do my thesis on the topic of Touch for Health. Part of my pitch was to show her that muscle testing works and that the muscle test can change with a little added stress. I was taking a risk by confronting her during class on the pool deck. My risk paid off. “Come and see me after class!” she said after my short demonstration. Do you want to know what I did to convince her to learn more and see me after class?
Here’s what I did. I noted the time of day and asked her if she would mind doing some muscle testing with me. She agreed. I did an anterior deltoid muscle test in the “clear”, meaning with no stress and as a baseline. It tested “switched on”. Then I tested it again while touching the alarm point for that time of day and the indicator muscle now moved down easily. I remember the shocked look on her face. Her eyes opened wide and she said, “Do that again!” So, I repeated the muscle test in the clear then the muscle test while touching the alarm point for that time of day. The same thing happened……her arm moved through the range of motion and she could not hold up her arm. She said, “O.K. Come and see me after class and we can discuss it” (Touch for Health as my thesis topic). I was elated! Step one was complete.
It was a powerful example of guts and determination to stick with my plan to make Touch for Health the centre of my thesis. I did see my thesis Advisor after class and I did pursue my thesis as I wanted to. I encourage you to set up situations where you can demonstrate the remarkable power of Touch for Health simply and easily. Set your intention, keep it simple and observe your friends and family’s amazement at the subtle changes in their muscles!
Step 2: Every thesis has a hypothesis. Mine was simply: “A Touch for Health Energy Balance Strengthens Muscles”. Find out the methodology and results of my Touch for Health experiment in the next blog post.
Using muscle testing as the basis for the change in the muscle response to indicate stressors is a great place to start.
