How To Do Applied Kinesiology

I'd like to thank Bryce and Linda for printing this on their website Co-Creations Unlimited

Scientific validity depends on replicability. To insure reliable duplication of results, the kinesiologic muscle testing technique used for all research cited in POWER VS FORCE book is described below. It is essentially the same method developed by Dr. John Diamond in his pioneering work in Behavioral Kinesiology in the 1970's.

You will need two people who are suitable for muscle testing techniques. The test subject extends their left arm horizontally while the tester faces the subject and places their left hand on the test subjects right shoulder and two fingers of their right hand on top of the wrist of the extended arm of the subject. The tester then simultaneously tells the subject to "resist" against the downward pressure applied by the tester. A normal subject is able to resist the pressure and keep the arm extended parallel to the ground. This means TRUTH as the body's muscles only remain strong in the presence of truth.

Not everyone is a suitable test subject, occasionally there are persons who are unable to keep their arm extended when any downward pressure is applied. This condition may be remedied by thumping themselves over the thymus gland (at the top of the breastbone) in a "one-two-three" rhythm, while they smile and think of someone they love. If test subjects repeatedly go weak, evaluate the tester's voice. The occasional voice that makes others go weak disqualifies its owner as a tester.

Keep the testing situation impersonal; refrain from smiling or making personal comments. Keep the environment free from noise, background music or distractions such as pets or intrusive children. Remove metal objects such as eyeglass frames, watches or jewelry, including necklaces. Strong perfume or after shave lotion may also affect test results. To improve concentration, have the subject close their eyes.

Now you are ready to do a trial run. The tester asks the subject to think of someone they love, then presses down with their two fingers on the subject's extended arm. The result is that the subject is able to stay strong and resist the downward pressure. If the subject does not stay strong at this point, then something has been overlooked in the preparation or the subject really does not love who they are visualizing.

Further trial testing may include asking the subject what their name is, visualizing the American flag, classical music, Mahatma Ghandi, or simply stating the word "OUTSTANDING". These should all test strong or resistance of the downward pressure.

Testing weak can be experienced by having the subject visualize someone they hate, saying any of the words Hitler, Swastika, Stalin, or Gangster Rap music. These should all test weak or not being able to resist the downward pressure of the tester.


After establishing that the test subjects reacts reliably and is in a normal state, proceed with the topic under investigation by making declaritive statements. Questions should always be posed as a declaration of fact. It is useless to ask questions about the future as the results will have no reliability. Always preface the investigation with the statement, "It is safe for me to make inquiry into __________(the specific topic)." YES? NO?

Each time a question is stated, the test subject is told to resist and the tester presses down quickly with two fingers on the test subject's extended wrist.

Muscle testing also works with the subject holding objects next to their solar plexus. Items that make the body go weak can be replaced with items that make the body go strong. You may want to experiment with items such as artificial sweeteners, foods you love, your favorite music cd, medicines you take ... you will be ASTOUNDED!

How To Do Applied Kinesiology

Is there a reliable way to do this on your own? Say you don't have anyone who can do it with you and you would like to check some things out.


Not that I've ever heard of. It has to be done with two people.


THis is a good demonstration that positive thoughts are strengthening. It's a wonderful realization. D

Not just positive thought, ut as mentionned so many thing can be tested.
In Wayne Dyer's Power of Intention, he relates a test he did with one of is son to compare a natural organic banana, compared to a CD of "rap/ganstered" CD... The Banana won :D


To Dave and Jeanne:

With regard to self-testing kinesiology, I took a workshop once with a woman who did this, with great success. She formed a circle with thumb and forefinger of her left hand, and then with the same fingers of the right hand she interlocked the left hand circle. To test, she asked the question and then gave a quick, light pull with her right hand. If the right circle let go, the answer was no. If it held tight, the answer was yes. In order to determine the right amount of resistance in the fingers, she had us check ourselves with questions to which we already knew the answer.


How To Do Applied Kinesiology

Your absolutely right Drena. In fact, I was listening to Dr. Dave the other day and he went over that technique and I suddenly remembered it from his book, Power vs. Force. In that discussion he also mentioned that one could get a weight of some kind (preferably between 3 to 5 pounds) and place it on a table before you, ask your question, and then pick up the weight.

The whole thing stems on whether the muscles go week or strong in response to your questions.

Thanks again for keeping me honest.

Self-testing kinesiology

To Dave:

Thanks for your reply to my post. However, the "oops" factor had entered into my comments, and I forgot to clarify what seemed to be an important aspect of the procedure as demonstrated in the workshop. Instead of asking a question, the teacher had instead made a statement, and the "yes" kinesiology response confirmed the statement as true, whereas the "no" response meant it was not true. And I do recall now that in the other material I have read about kinesiology, this was the method used. Sorry about the oversight. My senior moments seem to be lasting for weeks now. :-[


Statements of Truth

Drena, that is exactly what I heard about all of Dr. Hawkins' statements as they applied to the calibration level that were taken and offered in his book Truth vs. Falsehood. At the beginning of every chapter (in many cases) there would be a calibration list. Either people, events, or various writings were calibrated. Then Hawkins would provide details as to why the calibrations turned out as they did.

At first I thought Hawkins' explanations were purely his own. I thought to myself at the time, "Gee Doc, for a guy who talks allot about the down side of mental positionality, you sure have established allot of positions concerning these calibration levels." In other words, the Doc was opinionated to beat the band.

However, I later discovered that the Doctor calibrates his own statements, concern his calibration levels. He double-checks himself. It is obvious that the Hawkins is very well read. He is a man of very high intellect. Probably near genius levels and he's been over the top. He knows the Self. So, once you compile enlightenment with genius. Well, it makes for good conversation.
