This article is meant for
non-practitioners of specialized kinesiology as well as people who
are practitioners and their clients. So there will be points I
discuss that practitioners already know about.
There are different ways energy gets stuck in the body and energy
fields. and therefore,
there needs to be different approaches in removing them.
I've described in Part-1 how decisions I, myself, made held in energy charge.
Now I'll explain why some embedded energy just doesn't come out with
kinesiological treatment to the nervous system.
And why it does come out with a "direct energy" accessing method like

I want to resume my comment on trying to change old tapes.
I said at the end of Part-1 that a lot of people try to change their
behavior by attempting to program a new, positive belief system on top of
an older, negative programmed one. People mistakenly think they are
"changing" the old belief system because they think both belief systems
are in the brain.
But we find that's not factually correct. They are
putting in a second belief system side by side with the old.
And the old still remains even though their conscious mind prefers
to follow the new one.
When there's no stress, they might be able to follow the new one.
But which one they'll follow in times of stress depends on how
another part of them views their current life.
What really happens to change our reactions to circumstances is we
just don't feel the need to get upset, fearful or angry about the
same kinds of things. And we might also practice new behavior
habits, make affirmations or change our energies with meditation and
But if we still get triggered in the same old ways, then we know
that an old belief system and it's complete video tape is still embedded inside us, in a
I want to share another observation, which I think is noteworthy in
itself. All of my 13 clients who'd had a lot of SK (including 6
practitioners) were amongst the very
best Netherton releasers. They all got in touch with their past
experiences very easily and could immediately see the step by step
They did the translating from energy to sentences very well.
So another benefit of SK is an improved connection from conscious to
subconscious mind, and from conscious mind into the body. All the
people were rather "open," too. And of, course, they were interested
in releasing old energies from the body.
every one still had a large amount of old energy stored in the
body that came out with the Netherton method. And they had
the issues that were still active, coming out of
those tensions and emotional energies Just doing the SK had not
going back to what I said about Structural Integration helping SK do more,
these energies weren't still there just because the fascia had not been
opened. Bodywork definitely helped. But I did a lot of it for
all but one of these folks and the issues and energies still remained
until we did the Netherton approach.
So there's another mechanism that has to do with how the energy was put
into the body in the first place.
The conclusion I draw from this is
that the Netherton-Structural Integration-Reichian method, and the
Specialized Kinesiology method are two therapies that work together. But they don't do exactly the same things.
I am pleased to report that at least one SK practitioner I treated has
been using a lot of the Netherton approach with clients. I'd like to
see more of that. And I think it's less of a job for an experienced
SK practitioner, with all their bottles and testing protocols, to learn
some Netherton techniques rather than the other way around. I would
also like to see some practitioners of each working together.
Here's the major point. I
have found that virtually ALL the long term negative patterns we have
were really forced upon us by the actions that other people did to us, and by the
"words" or attitudes about us that they said or felt at the time of their
action. What they did and what they said forms the
foundation of the repeating pattern. And they did it while our own
attention was on something else.
Later, we ourselves may think the same ideas.
In fact, some people start off in the Netherton work thinking this is the
source of their issue; that they made a decision about how hopeless
something was, etc.
But I have to correct
this misunderstanding. I ask
them to look at the episode in their mind's eye and see if the person harming them was also saying the same thing, but in a "You such and
such," instead of an "I such and such."
Invariably, they say yes and
can see the moment in the episode where it was happening. Then they
process out the energy with the technique and I can feel that it
actually leaves the body. Before, when they were saying the words as
if they themselves originated them, I would feel no energy release
original implantation was made by the other person. The decisions
to have this kind of thing happen to us, repeatedly since then, were never made by us to begin with. Other people's words, and actions, tell us "what the story
is" and even tell us that the event will repeat.
There is a common misunderstanding by the general
populace that I wish to point out. Many people, perhaps most,
believe that their issues were caused by general patterns of up bringing
or by specific decisions they made sometime in childhood or later.
I can say from experience that these are part of it. And one can
work with them in psychotherapy and spiritual counseling. SK helps,
too, because it will change brain patterns and release body energies,
especially if the muscles are opened with the Bodywork.
original implantations - that went directly into the body - are not the mental
conditionings we get from "training" when we're older children or
That conditioning happens later than these, usually at times the person can remember.
These more original energies were, in this lifetime, put in at a very early
age, before we can remember, and before we had a conscious
reasoning mind to filter what those other people were saying. Many
happened at different times of the pre-natal, at birth, and some in
infancy. We understand psychologically speaking that they go right into the subconscious mind and act as
commands and belief systems.
And we don't even realize they're there because we can't view them with
our normal way of looking.
But as I keep saying, these energies went directly into the body, without
a parallel mental conditioning.
So that kind of conditioning is pretty hard to change neurologically since we don't even
know it's there, no less that we don't have a "mental" way to find and
change it. We might understand that we want to change the
conditioning that happened later, and we'll practice doing the better
Yet the hindrances from those earlier times seem to keep
dragging us down. Or they do their own behavior for a while even
though we want to behave differently and "know better."
That's because they were put there with a lot of simultaneous physical
energy. They have more power than a verbal instruction that comes
later on, or even an attempt to express ourselves better.
In fact, it's not even a matter of competing power. And there's
nothing that can be "changed" or "reprogrammed." There's an "energy
packet" in there. It's just an absorption of energy that occurred in
a past experience that we went through physically.
It just so happens that the energy we absorbed included the psychological
and emotional components of people in the scenes as well as what was
physically going on, too. We can't change how these packets are
made up any more than we can change a videotape movie in our VCR.
A lot of times, like in the prenatal and birth, there's a lot of
physical pressure and squeezing. And with that, there's a lot of
strong emotional feelings we quite literally "picked up" from our mothers.
These physical actions activate when we get "triggered" into the
psychological kinds of feelings Mother had. So the physiological
reaction we feel can be fairly strong.
In past lives, we die, and the blows that kill us, plus the weakening and
contracting life force, will also get activated and give us pains,
weakness and an action of withdrawal. It all activates physically
when the psychological part resonates with what we ourselves are feeling
about the present circumstance.
So we're dealing with something like a big splinter we picked up, or a
giant parasite with a fixed reaction to certain kinds of circumstances.
Activate the parasite in those times of your life by having a serious
fear, and the old material in the energy packet fills your muscles, your
organs, and your thought patterns and speech.
On the other hand, the way people think of it, the later conditioning is
not some energy packet put into the body with a lot of energy. It's verbal
direction that the person understands with the intellect, and follows,
(liking it or not).
But the words coming out of the two kinds of experiences are indeed the
same. What Mother said in the prenatal, what she might have
exclaimed to the child of 2 months old,
and what she expressed to the child of 8, are the same sentences, the same
energy forms. But in the very early times, they did not go through
the intellect as a learning and deciding experience.
The more original energies were physically pasted on, and pasting on
doesn't lend itself to reprogramming, even with brain accessing
techniques. That's why the old conditionings still hang on even
though we've made headway into new behaviors.
Let me add to this "pasting" idea. It will amplify what I first said
about who put what in.
The original implantations,
even those of other people's words during the event, are not held there because we made a mental,
emotional decision to hold them. They were "direct placements" of
the other person's energy, right
into our flesh. And the other person placed them there. So
it doesn't make much sense to try to remove them on the premise we
ourselves placed them there or that we ourselves made the decisions
embedded in the energy.
They were pushed into the collagen fibers of the
soft connective tissue, and into the "micro-tubules" elsewhere in the
flesh. It happens both because of our own contracting muscular tension,
with fear and protection at the time, and because of the physical force
that the other person is applying in the form of shaking, or a blow or
none of the stuff from the other person is our doing. We
are busy tensing up and protecting. The other person is making the
statements. And once they are in the unconscious mind, as SK people
statements act as commands for all future behavior. But these
statements reside in the flesh.
example, if, while spanking a child, a parent says, "You're bad! You
never do anything right. You'll never amount to anything," that's a
program being pushed into the body flesh.
SK practitioners know about
energies stored in the body. And with their methods, may release nerve patterns that have kept some of the contracting
energies that the kid made for the muscles of the buttocks. They may also be able to remove some of the
energies of fear or anger in the torso's emotional centers.
What's not been clarified however, is that the hitting energies of the
adult, and the chaos all around the event, hold their statements in. And
since their statements are the ones that became the commands on how we
should behave, we'll repeat the tightening up in the buttocks, for
instance, when something in our current life "resonates" with the parent's
energy in the buttocks muscles or someplace else.
It'll also resonate with similar energies in the auric energy field
that flows through the buttocks muscles. Those energies got put in
that location in past lives when we were hit there, too. And as you
will read farther on, its the past life deaths that run us after we've
cleared out this life's stuff with say, the Bodywork and SK.
The very action of hitting sends the energies in the person's hand,
arm and shoulder deep inside. They
say It's hopeless, and I'll teach you to be bad, and so forth. And
because of the deep alpha state that's created, the kid's body picks up
the emotional energies in the parent's chest, belly, pelvis and legs, too.
But none of this action is occurring in the child's brain. And very
importantly, the child is not making any subconscious decision about these
ideas that are occupying the feelings of the parent. The kid's
attention is focused on tensing and protection from the pain.
There might even be some resentment, or resistance created by the kid.
But it's not about what the parent is feeling, from the parent's side.
Not at this moment in time.
Yet, from then on, the recipient does
have the kinds of thoughts that the parent had as well as his own.
Or, the thoughts may be amplified, because the same sentences occurred in
past lives, infancy, pre-natal and birth. So something other than
what went on in the child's brain is keeping the parent's negative energy
In all the time frames in which we were physically subdued, even to
the point of being killed, or that we just
received by pressures in Mother's belly or birth canal, the "original" words
that became "the lasting decisions" never went through our
conscious mind. And the decisions to keep those words in our flesh
were never made in the mind either.
In fact, everyone I've worked with who does a Netherton process,
discovers just then, that the decisions about current life beliefs are
just recorded words of other people, stamped in the flesh by the other people.
So during the trauma itself, the "original" commands that
got stuck inside us, weren't decisions, nor even observations, made on our
part. Even if we were also consciously aware of a situation our own minds did not make the energies
in the body that became our
This comes up in all kinds of release processings. It's a
misunderstanding because people's brain patters think that they, the brain
patterns, are what control the person's own life.
A person might think
"they" said "It's hopeless," during an event, like
being stuck in a dungeon when it's hopeless no one will let us out and no
one can hear our cries for help. But when we do the
Netherton "word discovery" technique, we always find that first,
hours or days earlier, it was the abusing other person who told us, "It's
hopeless! No one can hear you. I'll never let you out." while
we were tensed up in the physical confrontation with him (or her).
know it's the abuser's words that were the ones stuck in the person's body
because I can feel that the energy leaves the body and
the person gets more relaxed. But when the person was saying it from
the place some time later, when he or she thought it, no energy left.
The processing person him or herself, can often feel the difference, too.
to repeat, in the original episodes these are commands from other
what's stuck in the body. And they always get implanted during times of great
overwhelm, and then, possibly death. The other people's sentences
information into the physical things they did.
their physical actions, their emotional and verbal energies, there's our
physical experience and our emotional energy. But our emotional energies
are not the command statements the other person is expressing. All
get stuck in together. Some of our feelings may parallel some of
theirs, but it's their statements that do the commands.
So when we
do a technique to clear out the energy packet, we have to clear out all
four parts, and the parts of other people in the episode as well,
including people and events just before, and just after, the specific
physical confrontation or pressure.
means clearing out the doctors, nurses and midwives at birth and father,
grandmother, grandfather, etc in the prenatal.
other people's emotional attitudes are part of the
energies that will tend to make the same kinds of things keep happening to
us, and they will also tell us how we should keep getting caught up in it.
when it's not harsh or abusive, it acts like this. One young man had
ongoing depression because he couldn't do as well in a new environment as
he did before. And he didn't know what to do to help these new
Turns out, he was very sick in the chest as an infant and
his parents also didn't know what to do to help. They were the ones
in the episode who were emotionally depressed. And he was the one
who had the weakened and tense feeling. This wasn't the
most significant episode to release, but after clearing the parents' words
at the same time he was focusing on the tension in his own body, he said his
chest became a little looser, and he realized he wasn't so depressed.
He'd cleared out the other people's words.
As SK practitioners understand, the implanted energies perpetuate the
hopelessness and stress of the past scenarios. What I'm saying here
is that these energies are not held in the body because of mental
decisions we, ourselves made, even without realizing it. Therefore,
they can't be released from chronically tight muscles holding them in
because there aren't any activating nerve signals from the original
Once the pattern is started in current life however, the brain will get the ideas
and will turn on the muscle tightening signals. Then a SK "diffusion"
will turn them off. But the signals aren't coming from the more
So rather than our
own mental decisions keeping energies in us, it's really energies
that keep giving us the mental thoughts.
Here are a few examples. "Stop crying! Or I'll really give you something to cry about."
"Don't you ever talk back to me again." These are statements made by
a parent who's already shaking or hitting the child. And these
are the statements still inside people who hold back their crying or their
anger. They tensed up at the time because they were in fear.
That enabled their own fearful emotions to get stuck inside them.
The angry other person's words went into the flesh because their own
grabbing or hitting put them there.
From then on, the other person's commands tell this person to shove down
anger and hold in tears.
"You never should have said that. Now you're going to pay for it."
This is a statement made by a captor in a past life who's imprisoned the
person, or is having him held by two others, and now he's going to beat
Besides being threatened literally for your life, hopelessness is another
reason to stuff. What good will it do to say something? "It's
hopeless. He never listens to me. I can't say anything to him
that will make him change. I'll just have to forget about it and go
back to my housework," This is a statement felt, or thought, by
Mother in the prenatal, while her tensing up abdomen is pressing her
feelings into the flesh of the unborn child inside her.
It's Mothers' words long before we, ourselves, had a reasoning intellect.
And what's key is that Mothers' words are a belief system that says to
hold in those energies.
In the person's own life, he or she may not have a lot of obvious
anger about others, but rather, a lot of futility and hopelessness
regarding being unable to say and get what one wants.
Now that I've explained about directly embedded energies, let me again
comment about trying to change tape. You can do it in brain
patterns. But you can't do it for the energies themselves.
So guiding a client through an imagery with a different outcome of the old
scene doesn't change the original scene. It will help to create
another outcome though, if you do it as a repeated visual affirmation.
You can clear the stress causing brain patterns and release the energies
that they were holding. Then it might be easier to develop new
behaviors and try to substitute the new ways for the old ways.
But old material that got pushed directly into the body was not created by
a decision or series of decisions. It's not like a program we can
keep updating. It's more like a video tape. You either play it
If you don't get triggered by being fearful about your current life, you
don't play it. But since it's kind of "built in" that we'll get
triggered, what Netherton does is erase the tapes. And if you erase
the original recording by seeing it's other people's words, then there's
no original to make duplicates in current life again.
In the next section, Part-3, I'll bring up the issue of survival. I
have found that all the key episodes that cause our patterns are about
survival. They'll have hopelessness and anger, sorrow, guilt, etc in
them, too. But they got stuck inside us because our survival was at
