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.
