‘The only constant is change.’ Heraclitus
So what happens when you are faced with change that seems out of your control? What if things changed around you that you had no say in? Do you run for the nearest exit or face the possibility that things could be better than before?
We are all undergoing a period of change, probably faster than ever and from past experience it’s only going to get faster. Technology is constantly changing and this year’s must have latest model will be out of date next year.
Change can come in many forms, and it’s often the life changing events that affect us most. Bereavement, divorce, miscarriage, redundancy are all forms of loss. And although very tragic, for some people they see this change as an opportunity to try something new, it gives them the freedom they were looking for. For others, the loss may be devastating, and take ages to recover from. It all depends on your perspective and your level of attachment.
As human beings most of us are naturally drawn to and understand how to handle change. It gives us a sense of security, that we will be okay as long as we are in control. Yet the concept of control is a tricky one. Ultimately how much control do you have over your life and how much control do you want?
Unexpected events happen when you’re not ready for change, and it’s how you respond to the event that’s important. As children we learn and respond quickly to stimuli, and adapt our behaviour and actions accordingly. Yet as adults we may become more resistant to change and want to keep the status quo. Maybe we have more to lose, or want to keep things as they are. But what if things aren’t working for you the way they are? What happens when you get stuck at the crossroads and don’t know which turning to take?
Kinesiology is a great way to access patterns held in your body that prevent you from moving forward. Sometimes we get weighed down with events from the past that have had a traumatic affect upon us. These past experiences can colour our perspective about the options we have now. When emotional trauma is stored in the body it may affect your energy levels and your emotional and mental wellbeing. It may affect motivation to move forward, and result in anxiety and depression. This in turn may lead to physical symptoms such as fatigue, stress, migraines, poor digestion or panic attacks.
Kinesiology gives you a way forward to lighten the load and learn how to handle change and embrace it. It may help you address long standing issues that seem to follow you around. By accessing and changing the energy patterns held in your body you may be able to see more clearly. It helps focus your attention on taking positive steps towards new possibilities.
Want to learn how to handle change? What can I do today?
One important thing to be aware of is that your brain remembers the last thought you had and invokes a response based on this. When you are looking to change thought patterns and behaviours it is vital to end on a positive note, regardless of what you have been thinking beforehand, as it is this thought that the body acts upon. By using muscle testing this can be easily demonstrated, as negative thoughts weaken the muscle response. You may also want to consider taking the flower essences Crowea and Sunshine Wattle. These aim to balance and centre you, relieve worry, and help maintain an optimistic outlook.
As kinesiology is a bodily led therapy, it works with the innate knowing your body has of what is out of balance. It also looks at the most important issues first, to make the biggest difference. By addressing issues that take you out of balance, energy levels may increase and you may feel a sense of wellbeing. If you imagine that your body is a computer, kinesiology is a great way of clearing out of date information and programmes that slow you down. So why not give yourself a fresh start, and try Kinesiology to help you move forward.
