Tipping Point

Tipping point

The notion of energetic awareness is an important concept in kinesiology. It is similar to the sociological idea of the tipping point. Tipping points are “the levels at which the momentum for change becomes unstoppable.”
Gladwell defines a tipping point as "the moment of critical mass, the threshold, the boiling point." Malcolm Gladwell’s book of the same name attempts to explain the ‘mysterious’ sociological changes that mark everyday life. As Gladwell states, "Ideas and products and messages and behaviors spread like viruses do.” Why? Because they are all made of the same stuff.

(Right now, as you are reading this article, you yourself are becoming a part of a tipping point. You are communicating your awareness to others simply through reading. Incredible, isn’t it?)

When working with inherited energetic imbalances such as diseases or chronic conditions practitioners of kinesiology have discovered that when balancing the energy of one family member, it has a flow-on or ‘tipping point’ effect for three generations up and down the family tree. For example, if I suffer from inherited asthma, and I work on balancing this inherited energetic blockage, not only will I benefit but other sufferers in my family three generations above and below me will also benefit.

This echoes the philosophy espoused in the bible in Exodus 34:5-8 – when the Lord passes in front of Moses and tells him:
 “I do not leave the guilty unpunished. I punish the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the 3rd and 4th generation." To me, this speaks not of religion, but of energetic medicine. This could be interpreted to mean the individual’s fears and personal traumas are passed onto their offspring if they are not healed.

Religion often has the effect of causing divides between people along ethnic, cultural and gendered lines – when in fact we are all different facets of the same glittering diamond. And that glittering diamond is energy or consciousness, if you like.

Hundreth Monkey theory concept relevant to Kinesiology

Kinesiology – the Energetic Modality Part 2

Kinesiology is a unique modality not only because it can catalyse huge changes in the individual but because of the fascinating theories and conclusions that can be drawn from its study and observance. This chapter continues on from Part 1 by outlining the major precepts of modern kinesiology practice.

The Hundredth Monkey theory is a concept that is relevant to kinesiology. As Ken Keyes Jr says in his book, the 100th Monkey, the Japanese monkey, Macaca Fuscata, was being observed by scientists on the island of Koshima. The scientists would drop raw sweet potatoes on the ground and the monkeys would eat them without washing the sand off. Then one day in 1952 the scientists witnessed an 18-month-old female by the name of Imo take her potato and wash it in a nearby stream before eating it. This caught on and as Ken points out “by 1958 all the monkeys on the island were washing their potatoes to clean them.”

By autumn 1958 the scientists made a surprising discovery – not only were all the monkeys on Koshima washing their food, but so were all the monkeys on neighbouring island Takasakiyama as well! The islands were not within visible sight of each other, so how could they have copied the other monkeys?

And so it became the Hundredth Monkey Theory – the concept that when a critical number achieves an awareness, this awareness is passed to the rest of the community. So how is it communicated? Energetically is the only answer. This is also giving name to the notion of universal consciousness, or global consciousness.

Kinesiology and Awakening the Knowing - the Healing Crisis

Kinesiology & The Healing Crisis

As Dr Ginger Chalford, PhD, emphasises in: [1]“Understanding the Healing Crisis”, once the body has begun to heal itself, it must go through an elimination process in order to return to homeostasis, or normal functioning. This is referred to as the healing crisis. In a healing crisis, every system in the body works together to eliminate waste and set the stage for regeneration.

The first point of interest here is that symptoms of the healing crisis may be at first identical to the disease it was meant to heal. Dr Chalford states: “but there is an important difference - elimination. A cleansing, purifying process is underway and stored wastes are in a free-flowing state.” The body, mind, and spirit are no longer locked.

As naturopathic physician Dr. Bruce [2]Fife points out, it is called a ‘healing’ crisis because the body is healing itself.  It is referred to as a ‘crisis’ because the symptoms can be dramatic and rather unpleasant.  “Because the healing crisis is accompanied by unpleasant symptoms it is often mistaken as a sickness,” he says.  In reality, it is just the opposite. It is a process in which the body is becoming healthy.

Kinesiology and Natural Knowing Part 1

Testimonials speak volume and because I get so many inquires about what specifically I do I have decided to post a article/testimonial written by Emily Dixon and I have posted a link to a testimonial about my work  by Master Dhyan Vimal  ... i

Kinesiology – the energetic modality
Part 1
Kinesiology is an energetic modality that uses muscle monitoring to determine imbalances in the body and its meridians. Using feedback from the muscle test, these imbalances are corrected through techniques with origins in a range of modalities: from Chiropractice to Traditional Chinese Medicine to Homeopathy to Acupuncture.

Over a few sessions the kinesiologist will help the client identify a series of goals. These might be aided by reinforcements such as: nutritional supplements, stress release techniques, Bach Flower remedies, acupressure, chakra balancing, light touch, firm reflex massage, suggested lifestyle changes and more.
The kinesiology balance or correction the client receives depends on the feedback from the muscle test. So in a sense, the client’s body tells the kinesiologist what it needs to return to a state of health.

So, what really happens during a session? Being in the position of the client can be a unique experience. Strange emotions can come over you when you are being treated. I have been susceptible to random uncontrollable laughter and moments of extreme grief whilst on the massage table. While your energy is being balanced you are not simply thinking of a time of stress – you are energetically there.

Emotional detoxification
So, anything can happen. It is not as though you are out of control, however. You can choose to express whatever feelings you wish to during a session. It also depends on how comfortable you feel with your practitioner. 

The first time I had a kinesiology session I walked out of the session feeling a bit dizzy, extremely relaxed and in a total state of euphoria. I couldn’t get the smile off my face. As they say, I felt like a million bucks. Since then, my session outcomes have ranged from the gentle to the intense. Kinesiology is a bit like an emotional detox.

There are many pieces of research and much evidence to support the true healing potential of energetic modalities like kinesiology, but as a client and student practitioner, I have come to observe several defined precepts in action.

The concept of ‘cellular memory’
Cellular memory as illustrated by Carroll in [1]Cellular Memory, is the concept that “the cells in the human body contain clues to our personalities, tastes, and histories”, independently of genetic codes or brain cells. That is, everything that has ever happened to us is recorded in the cells of our body, and remembered - like files in a computer.

Dr Bruce Lipton, PhD, is a cellular biologist who specialises in the study of cellular memory and epigenetics, or the study of heritable changes in gene function that occur without a change in the sequence of the
DNA.  This translates to - how the environment turns genes on and off to control the behaviour of cells.

In his video: The New Biology – Where Mind and Matter Meet, Dr Lipton examines the notion that every human on the planet contains the genes for almost every disease imaginable. However Bruce estimates only five per cent of the population actually inherits genetic DNA. So, if only five per cent of people inherit genetic disease, why is illness so prevalent in our society?

Dr Lipton recently made the incredible discovery that when the protein that surrounds DNA is stripped away, the DNA is rendered virtually inactive. So what turns our DNA on? Cellular memory is the name for the concept that our thoughts and beliefs influence our cells – right down to DNA level. So, our thinking has an effect on our physical bodies.

This means that the five senses are constantly receiving information from sensory perception, and this information is transforming the subconscious mind, which is in turn creating our external reality. This occurs without our awareness. So, what information are you feeding your subconscious?

Tiger Woods- from Montreal Gazette

As published in the Montreal Gazette

Self-Inflicted Fall From Grace: Tiger Woods's cynical use of his family as
post-tournament props distracted attention from what he was really doing.

First of all, let me say quite clearly that I am not a fan of Tiger Woods. Never have been, never will be.

I recognize that he can hit a golf ball quite well, for what that's worth.
Lance Armstrong can ride a bike. Barry Bonds can hit a baseball. LeBron
James can dunk a basketball.  OJ Simpson could play football.That doesn't make any of them heroes. Matter of
fact, they're all about as far from being heroes as you can get.

Tiger Woods is a man whose life is built around greed and a ruthless,
monomaniacal obsession with winning. No wonder he's obsessed with acquiring
mistresses. The man has always had everything he ever wanted. Who is going
to tell him no? When I read about Woods, all I see is stories about when
he's going to return to the PGA Tour, how he's going to rehab his image (as
though it's all about image and nothing else) why he's likely to come back
better than ever. No one mentions that this was one twisted, greedy human
being from the get-go. Tiger Woods is what happens when you turn your child
into a machine.

Pity his father, Earl Woods, is no longer around to see the destruction he
has wrought. The infant who was on television putting against Bob Hope when
he was 2 years old, the 3-year-old who shot 48 for nine holes, the teenager
who stepped into a multi-million-dollar Nike contract before he won his
first pro tournament, has finally broken out of the carefully constructed
shell. Predictably. What Tiger Woods, his father, his handlers and his
sponsors failed to understand was the simplest of all truths: we are human.
We are not robots.
The human Woods kept trying to break through the robot. We caught glimpses
and they weren't pleasant: The petulant child hurling his clubs and swearing
when a shot goes awry. The swearing. The dirty, leering jokes. The arrogant
brat who does his famous drive-by every time he passes the autograph hounds
waiting after round, refusing to do a Phil Mickelson and spend 15 minutes
signing autographs for the adoring gallery.

The greedy walking corporation who made it eminently clear from the
beginning that he didn't care about the Asian sweatshop workers who were
turning him into the wealthiest athlete on the planet. The American of mixed
racial heritage who couldn't care less about politics at home, where people
of colour have suffered and bled for 300 years.

The most outrageous thing I have heard said of Woods came from his father.
Earl Woods predicted that Tiger would turn out to be one of the great men on
the planet, like Gandhi or Nelson Mandela. Woods is a great golfer, whatever
that is worth. He is not a great man, by any stretch of the imagination.
Woods doesn't begin to measure up to the athletes who were also great
humans: Jackie Robinson, Jim Thorpe, Bill Russell, Babe Didrickson, Muhammad
Ali, Jesse Owens, Rocket Richard. They had to fight real hatred and
prejudice. They suffered real hurt.

Woods is a shill, nothing more or less. He works for anyone who will pay
him. He'll peddle watches, golf balls, automobiles, consulting companies.
And Woods will not trouble himself for one instant if he learns that a good
part of his fortune is because of the labours of Asian workers making a few
dollars a day. That's not his problem, as long as he can afford to cruise
off into the sunset on a $20-million yacht named Privacy - a middle finger
flipped at all the suckers who pay the bills.

The nearest parallel we have to Woods is Michael Jordan. Jordan was the
first athlete to go global as a brand rather than as an iconic sports hero.
He was the first anti-Muhammad Ali, the athlete who didn't give a damn about
anything but himself. Jordan refused to take a stand against people like the
racist South Carolina senator Jesse Helms because racists buy Nikes, too.
Now Woods has picked up where Jordan left off - and therein lies a
cautionary tale.

What was left of Jordan after his career was over was seen in his
disgraceful speech when he was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Jordan is now a bitter, angry, vengeful, vindictive man who used his Hall of
Fame speech to slander all of his rivals and most of his one-time friends
and teammates.

Someone wrote to me yesterday to say that "we" have torn down the icon that
is Tiger Woods. Nothing could be more wrong. "We" might have built Tiger
Woods into the monster of ego and greed he has become, but "we" had nothing
to do with tearing him down. Woods did that himself, with his insatiable
greed, his roving, relentless sexual appetite, his cynical use of his
beautiful family as props to distract attention from what he was really

In two or three years (if not sooner) most of this will be forgotten. Woods
will be divorced, he'll have as many mistresses as he wants, he'll go back
to winning majors, raking in millions and endorsing half the products on the
planet. Why will he get away with it? Because sports fans want someone to
worship, and the bottom line is that they don't care if the man inside is
worse than Tony Soprano.

If you want to help your children find heroes in the world of sport, stick
to figures like Tony Dungy, Marc Trestman, Anthony Calvillo, Ben Cahoon,
Jean Béliveau, Otis Grant, Clara Hughes. Remind your children that when
Hughes won her gold medal in Turin in 2006, she immediately donated $10,000
to Right to Play, the charity that attempts to help African children through

If Tiger Woods was to donate a comparable portion of his personal fortune,
it would come to $200 million or more. But he won't do it. That is one
reason he's not a hero. Never has been, never will be. Because for openers,
if you're not a hero to your own family, you're nothing.

Passion and Presence

Before continuing on with more content in this blog I want to take some time out to answers questions regarding the benefits of PTTK. Below are some of the benefits of PTTK:)

Assists in awakening intuition in the performer.

Integrates mind/body so that the mind is not agitated and the emotions are not in turmoil ... there is extra room for extraordinary peace, sense of power and the transcendent of joy in your sport/performance.

Promotes integration of right/left brain that ensures hemispheric coordination when challenged to movement, allowing you to stay in the Zone.

Integrates, balances the central, governing nervous systems, right/left brain, mid brain, brain stem,and CIA
An integrated whole brain allows the nervous system to function at low stress and maximum optimal performance.

Allows the athlete/performer to break free of old negative survival patterns ... using their own positive patterns that keeps the body balanced.Includes methods of developing Ki, relaxation,letting go, concentration,breathing activity so you the athlete/performer is congruently integrated resulting in accessing extraordinary strength, speed, endurance, balance, ease, and psychological confidence.

Provides a means of stripping institutional lies and myths that encrust the individual.

Unveils a creative joining of capabilities ... will power, awareness, imagination,emotion,the senses,the intellect and motor control harmonious for optimal peak performance.

Balances negative emotional patterns that inhibit ultimate cooperation between the body and mind.

Helps the performer develop sensory acuity so that the athlete/performer can discover the inner secret of sport/performing so they do not consciously have to plan how to act instead one lets the appropriate response happen to them.

Assists the athletes/performers identity, the sense of self mastery and power and to learn to use it with skill so it can be expected to recur and its coming to be counted on ... in individual sport, competition and performance.

PTTK aligns logical levels of alignment which include environment, behavior, which include language, senses, movement,experience base, capabilities,values,beliefs,identity,overman, giving the athlete/performer the feeling of being in control. A unifying experience involving the performers entire sense of self, the environment, higher creative self, master of his/her destiny.

PTTK aligns and balances ego (ambition) and soul (mission). Passion and presence naturally emerge when these two forces are in harmony with one another.

Motivation: Master of your destiny

The motivation of the athlete/performer is the other factor for performance and determines the quality of the outcome. Through my work PTTK it is now possible to not only understand the structure of motivation through its sub elelements, values and beliefs, but to actually link them to the body.

In PTTK, I find the criteria, the players motivation strategy, their beliefs and their values and this is important so players can access their own energy and motivation rather than relying on trainers and coaches to push them.

In a wider sense PTTK is connecting the performer to his/her goals so he can link the training that he does NOW to his performance goals, clearing the path from where he was in the past, to where he is NOW, (present) keeping him conscious in the NOW, so he/she can go to where he/she wants to go.

This gives the athlete/performer the feeling of being in control, a unifying experience involving the athletes/performers entire self, the environment, the higher creative self and his/her destiny.

Remember there is no need to limit ourselves in taking what we will from the infinite storehouse.
