Once you embrace the glorious possibilities of natural healing, whether through herbs, good food, massage, yoga, life coaching or any offerings from a huge array of natural therapies, products and techniques then you have choices – many choices!
How can you choose wisely? It can be a process of trial and error or success, and over time we can learn what is right for us. We can go on personal recommendation. We can read up on facts.
Have you ever come across ‘muscle-testing’? It taps into the muscular system as a way of accessing the body’s own intelligence, as I understand it the intelligence of the mind and body together.
Here’s a simple muscle-testing technique you can try when weighing up options and making choices. Join the thumb and finger of one hand together to form a circle. Link the other thumb and finger together through the circle made on the other hand so that you have two interlocking circles.
Pull really hard to test and measure the strength of your grip. Compare your grip when saying your own name aloud and then a false name. For example, I can test ‘I am Judy’ and compare the strength of my grip to “I am Jemima”.
Now you should have a working comparison. Use these grip comparisons for any decisions – along with careful thought, considering the practicalities and common sense of course!
Shiatsu? – Indian Head Massage?
This superfood? – not this superfood?
This choice off the cafe menu – that choice?
Spend this money on … now? – Save this money?
This meditation class? … or that meditation class?
I’m sure you get the sense of this. try it on non-essentials first to get the measure of it so that it’s an extra tool in your kit when next making important choices.
