How I Became A Holistic Healer

Yesterday I wrote about how Applied Kinesiology started, and how I got to know my mentor Dr. G. Today continues with a very brief version of how I learned from my mentor.

Once I started observing Dr. G work I quickly became amazed at the power of the work he did. I didn’t even need to see any proof for myself, which I didn’t for the first couple of weeks, because his clients were all so excited by the healing they experienced.

His methods weren’t completely foreign to me as I had experienced a little of that type of work from a friend. I wasn’t sure about muscle testing, the diagnostic tool that many practitioners use, as I didn’t understand the science behind it. I have a very strong back ground in science having grown up with a father who was a NASA engineer. But, I kept an open mind and simply observed.

AK was like a new language to me. I could sit and watch what was going on, but didn’t have a clue as to what was really happening. It was like learning a language; I started to understand a couple of words, then a sentence or two would make sense until finally I was understanding the paragraphs and then the content.

I took tons of notes, furiously writing down pages of what my friend was doing. After I started to really understand what was going on he started to teach me specific techniques. What was really amazing is that he could teach me things very quickly. Once we were waiting in line for food and he taught me a technique that took him three repetitions of a workshop to finally get! Not because he was slow, rather the teacher simply couldn’t communicate what he was doing. Dr. G’s and my rapport continues like that to this day.

The really lucky thing for me was that I had already figured out how to do adjustments on people. I used a few close friends to practice on helping them to find back pain relief, fix their necks and ribs etc. From Dr. G I learned to find the root of the problem first, then do the adjustment. My success only increased.

I remember when I first did something truly remarkable for someone. I had a yoga student that was having a couple of serious issues. A young woman who had trouble sleeping, and her period had stopped. I actually didn’t really know what I was doing. All I did was balance a couple of systems and she was able to sleep that night through, and she started bleeding the next day. This is the kind of thing my mentor did all the time, and he had passed the knowledge on to me.

I have been really graced in this life. I have had six amazing beings teach me, each from a depth that still astounds me. Dr. G was the last of these (so far), and I seemed to be an apt student.

Obviously, there is a lot more to this story, but I want to get on to what I actually learned and mostly, how I learned to apply it in a way that has made me a very successful healer. That I will start next time.

Meet the Author

Hello and welcome to my blog! There are several reasons I decided to start writing a blog on natural self-healing. The main thing I want to do is to share information on health and healing so that people can take action to heal themselves using natural techniques. I have met so many people who couldn't afford natural health care. They may have had health insurance, but they didn't trust that model. Many people want to know how to be healthy naturally. They want to know what really works and what doesn't. They want to be health conscious and often fail because of poor information, lack of knowledge, bad science and other factors. This blog is intended to help demystify the body and its various functions and to help people understand what is really needed to obtain optimum health. One of the great things about knowledge of the body is that once you know and understand how it works it becomes easy to know what the right things to do for it. And, it is much easier to do the right things when the consequences of the wrong things are fully understood. To do this I will be drawing from the knowledge of many people that I have learned from. I will talk about biochemistry relating that to what is needed to obtain optimum health. There will be information about the physical structure of the body and how to keep that aligned and functioning well. A major part of yoga has to do with health, so information about yogic techniques will be included. Mental and emotional health are important for the health of the body/mind, so articles about these topics will be included. And, there will be an occasional article about me and what I am up to. Hopefully I can relate that back to some health issue as well. The title Self Adjusting Technique comes from my technique for self-adjusting the structural part of the body, that is adjusting the body's various vertebrae and joints. For this blog it will include the idea of how to adjust health issues for yourself and those you care about. With a little knowledge there is a lot people can do to help heal themselves and stay healthy. I want to explain complex information about the body in a way that is easy to understand and useful. The comments section will help in that goal as people can ask for clarification if there is something they don't understand. And maybe we can get some helpful input from people smarter than me that will benefit us all. I hope you find information that can help you with your health issues. Kalidasa
