Psychokinesiology really work?
response that have been gotten thus far have been extremely positive.
Traditional talking therapy has from 30% to 75% positive response
from the clients depending on the system. Psychokinesiology
has an even higher positive response. It has been able to deal with
generalized anxiety, phobic-types of responses, relationship problems,
lack of organization, and emotional overreactions to name a few.
It's really wonderful to see a person's life change in a matter
of a few sessions. There has even been single-session changes that
were extremely dramatic for both the client and the practitioner.
does Psychokinesiology work?
been previously said that Psychokinesiology uses both
muscle testing and cognitive therapeutic techniques. With the introduction
of cognitive techniques a Pk practitioner finds what needs to be
done. With the muscle testing he or she finds what the unconscious
is doing about it. Hence, Psychokinesiology is a
holistic process. It assumes that the individual is a complete system
operating at peak efficiency for its present experiences. It works
with the whole system correcting both conscious and unconscious
operations. In traditional psychotherapies there tends to be more
conscious reconstruction. That is, the
reconstruction process is based on external, that is verbal and
behavioral, repatterning. With traditional approaches the assumption
is made that if an individual is able to discuss a problem state
in a particular way then change has occurred. It is then up to the
individual to incorporate that change into his or her
of the basic principles of Psychokinesiology is that
each person has all of the resources that he or she needs in order
to make the changes that are needed in their life. It is simply
a matter of taking those behaviors, attitudes, values, beliefs,
and emotions that were getting in your way and finding the areas
in which they can actually be resources.
Pk builds on the existing resources. This means that
every behavior is useful in some context. Consequently, there is
no attempt to change anything because all of the resources are already
in operation and operating perfectly for what they are doing. All
that is necessary is to allow the brain and personal experience
to work together to reorganize the resources so that the mind and
body are operating cooperatively and synergistically.
individual is seen as an evolving system. Psychokinesiology
takes the whole system into account. Pk works by realigning
the resources which are already there. This, in essence, readjusts
the flow of emotional energy throughout the individual system. It
is necessary that this natural process of
evolution be incorporated in with the change. Psychokinesiology
is a generative process, meaning as one part of the system
is adjusted, other parts which are related to it are automatically
modified generating new responses. In essence, this generative process
is a chain of evolving adjustments. Each individual experiences
change not in great leaps and bounds but in small steps and shifts
both inside and outside. You know you have changed once you notice
that something is different about yourself and what is happening
in your life. Since human beings are experts in the use of generalization
a simple change can be generated into more complex experiences and
this most specifically happens in small steps.
is the difference between the Time of Origin and the Time of Awareness
of a problem?
is a unique concept that has been found while developing Psychokinesiology.
Most therapies fail to recognize that there is a difference between
the Time of Awareness of a problem and its Time
of Origin. Traditional talking therapies tend to go back
as far as the Time of Awareness. Quite often the Time of Origin
is totally out of awareness because it may be in utero or a genetic
predisposition. This is makes it difficult to access.
is a large amount of data available which deals with problems encountered
while in utero. It has been pretty much established that whatever
emotions the mother feels, the fetus feels as well. So, if the mother
is having a stressful experience the biochemicals that are flowing
through the mother's bloodstream go through the umbilical cord into
the fetus. The fetus will have a stressful experience at the same
time. The difference is that the fetus has no idea what is causing
the experience of stress. It can only associate the mother's bodily
shifts and muffled sounds that it may be hearing as being the possible
causes of the stress. After the child is born, then other associations
are made. When the child hears sounds which may be similar (due
to generalization) to those encountered in utero, stressful biochemicals
will result and a situation which may have no real stress in itself
can become stressful through unconscious associations. The fact
remains that it is quite likely that the external situation that
the child is experiencing has nothing to do with the experience
that the mother had gone through and which affected the fetus in
utero. With this description you can also get the idea of the difference
between the Time of Awareness of a problem and its
Time of Origin.
concept that developed from Psychokinesiology, is that if a behavior,
an attitude, a value, or belief is not operating properly in a specific
situation it is not because the behavior is wrong or does not work
or that something is wrong with the person. It is because it is
operating out of time, out of place,
out of state, or out of order. What
this means is that the operation is either temporally,
contextually, contentually, or sequentially
dysfunctional. When a behavior, belief, an attitude or so
on is temporally dysfunctional it means that timing
is the problem. When a person's timing is off the individual will
make choices which are either too early, not taking everything into
account, or too late by waiting too long before making a decision.
An example is coming up with an idea which is ahead of its time.
An idea which is ahead of its time does not get appreciated in the
period in which it is expressed. If an operation is contextually
dysfunctional the choice does not fit the conditions under
which the person is operating. A person who is laughing during a
serious experience is operating emotionally out of place. This reaction
may be due to fear, lack of awareness of the situation, or any other
number of reasons. An example of a contentually dysfunctional
operation is a non-sequeter statement. This generally indicates
that the person has not understood the meaning of the situation,
is not following the flow of thought, or has an incorrect conception
of what is happening or being
discussed. One who is operating with a sequential dysfunction
is one whose internal organization or order for decisions for behaviors
is organized in such a way that it gets in his way causing frustration
and emotional problems. What this means is that the individual has
a specific pattern of cues (strategies) that is paid attention to
before acting and continues this action even if it is not useful
or even if the cues are temporarily separated. In order to get an
individual operating appropriately what needs to be done is to readjust
or resequence the operations. With traditional talking therapy doing
this is itself a problem.
goes on in a Psychokinesiology session?
answer this question it is necessary to understand that no change
can occur until the individual wants to make a change. The difference
between traditional talking therapies and Psychokinesiology
is that using Pk, with a simple muscle test, it can
easily be found if the client is willing and wants to make a change.
Once there is this desire and willingness then the practitioner
first thing to do is to gain rapport. This is done through basic
information gathering. The line of questioning can go like this:
"What's going on that you want to change?"
Whatever the response, ask yourself:
the underlying problem?"
for a fear, anxiety, helplessness, vulnerability anger, guilt, or
Ask yourself, "What purpose does this serve?"
your client, "What makes this a problem?"
"What do you want to change?"
"What has stopped you from changing until now?"
have to find out where you can begin. Through a series of questions
you find out if what the client is saying and what needs to be changed
are actually the same. For example, a client may come in and say
that there is a lack of motivation. What we may find out is that
motivation is not the problem. The actual problem may be procrastination.
Once you get a congruent response from the client you will begin
the muscle testing session.
sessions are done with the client lying on a table. There are reasons
for this. Lying down induces relaxation, lowers anxiety, and promotes
regression. The advantage of this position is that it permits the
expression of feelings that may otherwise produce an overpowering
state of anxiety. While
the client is lying down you can also do tests that will indicate
if the whole brain is in rapport with the problem or only one hemisphere.
the muscle testing begins it is necessary to calibrate to
the client's stength. Certain basic tests begin the calibration.
After those basic tests, the session begins by looking at the basic
emotional reflex responses. From there, the Time Reversal
can be done. After a Resource Realigning has been done then
the healing is brought forward in time. The session ends
with an Ecology Check to insure that the body and mind are
going to work in harmony with the change. This includes a restatement
of the basic emotional reflexes as well as tuning into any of the
Emotional Reflex Points that were used during the session.
The first session usually takes about an hour-and-a-half. An interesting
adjunct to the process is that after several sessions, the client
begins to know what needs to be changed. A complete transcript of
the basic Psychokinesiology session is in the book.
can someone know if Psychokinesiology is right for them?
like any other kind of therapy, you need to inquire. One of the
best methods is to buy the book and read it. This will give you
a good idea of what goes on in a Pk session and the
philosophy and principles behind it. If you decide to go through
with it then allow yourself several sessions. There is no way to
how many sessions will be needed. Desired change has been seen to
happen in 1 or 2 sessions. Others have taken 6 or more sessions.
Since change occurs in small steps, it is always recommend to not
expect amazing things immediately. Look for the subtleties for in
them you'll find change occurring. Since the change that occurs
is generative it will have a snowballing effect. Subtle changes
will bring about differences in how you will be reacting in emotional
situations and in your approach to life. If after a couple of sessions
you still do not feel comfortable, by all means, seek out a different
sort of system. Often a person will feel that nothing is happening
but others will make comments about how they are acting differently.
