It’s Metaphysical Monday! Today I would like to share my favourite self muscle testing technique with you. Muscle testing, for those of you who may not know, is using your body to indicate if something is empowering or disempowering to you.
While arm testing (extending your arm while you are holding what you would like to test over your heart centre and having someone gently press down on your arm to see if you are strengthened or weakened by the thing you are testing) works very well, we don’t always have someone around to do that for us.
There are many self testing techniques such as sway testing or using your fingers in various ways but I’ve always struggled to find one that worked reliably for me that gave clear results that were as unmistakeable as the arm testing. That is, until I found this technique.
Extend your dominant arm straight in front of you. Make the thumbs down gesture with your hand, making sure your thumb would be pointing at 6 o’clock if your thumb was a hand on a clock. Ask, “What is yes?” and rotate your thumb clockwise until it won’t comfortably go any further. Note where it would be on a clock. My yes is around the 4 o’clock position. Allow your thumb to go back back to the original thumbs down position. Next ask, “What is no?” and again rotate your thumb clockwise noting the point where it won’t go any further. My no is around 1 o’clock.
It’s as simple as that! Practice until you feel confident that you know where your yes result and no result is, and then you can test things by holding them against your heart centre, or by simply asking a question with your inner voice.
I really like this technique because it is reliable for me, I can’t seem to throw the results with what I think or would like the answer to be like I can with some other muscle testing techniques, and it doesn’t tire my arm out. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
PS. If you still aren’t sure what I mean by the written instructions, I will have a video posted of me demonstrating it on youtube and social media. Hope you find it helpful!
