Some interesting feedback with the Reactive Muscle procedure from the AMM (Advanced Muscle Monitoring) course: Originally when I developed the course, I found the alarm points were highly accurate in detecting under which meridian the muscle could be found and then the specific muscle could be easily identified by scanning  the muscles of the relevant meridian.  However, side of the body the muscle was on could not be detected from the alarm point and so the muscles on both sides would need to be checked.  For the last few months, I have been finding that the alarm point side now reflects the side of the body that the muscle can be found on.

I find it so amazing how procedures in kinesiology can clarify them selves over time.  Kinesiology becomes more potent as time rolls forward.  The Theory of Morphic Resonance, developed by scientist Dr. Rupert Sheldrake may offer insight into how kinesiology can evolve itself such that it can work with greater efficiency over time as in the above example.

Dr. Rupert Sheldrake’s theory of Morphic Resonance suggests that natural systems, such as biological organisms, species, or even crystals, inherit a collective memory from previous similar systems. This memory is not stored in any physical medium but rather in a field that transcends space and time, known as the “morphic field.” According to Sheldrake, these fields contain the cumulative memories and behaviours of all past members of a species, influencing present and future members.

The “hundred monkeys” anecdote involves the observation of Japanese macaques in the 1950s. After one monkey learned to wash sweet potatoes, this behaviour gradually spread through the troop. The story suggests that once a critical mass (hypothetically one hundred monkeys) adopted the behaviour, it spontaneously appeared in monkeys on other islands, suggesting a form of non-local learning or collective memory. Although the scientific validity of this specific story is debated, Sheldrake uses it to illustrate the potential mechanics of Morphic Resonance.

In Rupert’s model, he talks about how isolated monkeys who develop new behaviours who reach a “critical mass” of individuals, build a kind of momentum within the field of consciousness which leads to a rapid cascade causing the same behaviour to be adopted by other isolated groups of the same monkey species.  However, when a kinesiology procedure evolves itself overtime what does that mean?  Something that didn’t work when it was attempted a year ago now works.  The change in the efficacy of the procedure is neither dependent on the client or the practitioner but now occurs universally for all practitioners working on all clients.  This clearly adds another dynamic dimension to the understanding of Morphic Resonance, but also shows how kinesiology itself is an evolving consciousness.

I developed the above mentioned reactive muscle procedure  over 15 years ago, but it took me a few years of using it in the clinic to be able to explain it to my students.  When Dr Charles Krebs was doing a guest lecture at college teaching his Law of 5 Elements in 2014, I was not surprised to see that his procedure for finding reactive muscle partners was very similar to mine.  The reason I was not surprised was because I had experienced the same thing with Charles many years earlier just after he developed The Three Pillars.  When he guest lectured the three pillars I discovered I had developed an extremely similar procedure which I called the Dantien Balance.  They both worked within the framework of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) from different perspectives, both seeking to stabilize three points along the central axis of the body.  We each found that both techniques had a similar effect in increasing the overall coherence of the body’s energy systems and neurology making them a foundational technique in kinesiology.  The crazy thing was we came up with our procedures in exactly the same week but in different corners of the world and completely independently.

There is a recognised phenomenon called either “multiple discovery” or “simultaneous invention” where ideas and inventions arise from different individuals independently at the same time in different locations of the Globe.  There is overwhelming evidence of this phenomenon with the historical data collected through patents being lodged around the world.  Rupert Sheldrake address this occurrence through his theory of Morphic Resonance where ideas are being shared through the morphic field.  However, I would propose that it is the consciousness of the field that is guiding what arising within the individuals held within it.  And that all things are evolving through a free-flowing feedback system between both the field and the manifested beings.

I’m just lucky and blessed to be in the right place at the right time flowing with the field…. Kinesiology is an amazing journey.  Thank you to all my teachers.
