In mid 2011, I was working with a client whose previous symptoms had resolved with HK work. He had come with a new symptom, lower left abdominal/back pain. Medical investigation had failed to detect anything wrong and he had no functional problems in the area, or problems moving—just the pain, which was sometimes more at the front and sometimes more in his back. He had never suffered an injury in this area or had any sort of surgery there.
So we set off working the HK menu and amongst other corrections we had to do an ECS: Phantom Pain. This was extremely puzzling given that there was no history of injury or parts removed in the painful area. As we did the Phantom Pain correction I got an image in my head of an arrow lodged through the client’s torso, front to back.
Previous to this I had had some useful discussions with Amanda Brookes about what she calls a ‘data program’, a memory in the physical tissues of a past trauma during which the client died in a previous life. I did a quick muscle test with my client to ask if he had died from an arrow wound and got a ‘No’. so I asked had he survived the injury with incomplete healing?—scars?—and got a ‘Yes’.
Over the next year I did a lot of testing to understand how a trauma from a past life can re-emerge in the present. It seems clear that the Five Elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine and, in particular, imbalances in the Ko Cycle allow this to happen. I have written about the Ko cycle balancing protocols elsewhere. They were the first in a succession of protocols which now come up all the time for my clients.
The ideas for new protocols have evolved in three ways: 1) when I am working with a client and a standard correction takes an odd form or seems to be addressing something not usually associated with it; 2) when I am thinking about areas where clients aren’t responding with permanent recovery to what is already on my menu; or 3) when I am totally stuck and have asked Diane Connelly for help, and she has done shamanic journeying for me.
I test up the detail of a new protocol using our HK word lists and tools by asking the following questions:
- What is the protocol called?
- What imbalance does it intend to correct?
- Does it look like something already on my menu?
- How many items?
- How many aspects, and what are they—thoughts, self-touch, additional tools, etc?
- Do we hold points?
- What points do we hold—normal HK, special, compound, APEC?
- How do we hold them?
- Does this protocol fit into any of my already defined categories?
Nearly all the new protocols, as a theme, re-balance the client’s energy system when it is resonating unhealthily with an energy pattern that originates from outside itself in time or space. So far I have 21 extra categories of protocols on my menu, in addition to HK 1-10, and almost all of the work Jimmy Scott has taught in the UK saving his new A, B, and C, Janice Hocking’s Assimilation 1 and Ann Parker's APEC 1.
So there are quite a few protocols within the Expand Kinesiology net and I would love to share them with as many of you as possible. We need to start with the Ko Cycle balancing protocols and these are on offer in a workshop next scheduled for 15-17 August in Suffolk. Please have a look at the workshop section of my website for booking details.
