I just have an intuition (;-)) <<<<(hey, I like that: it looks like a symbol for the monkey mind! when I actually meant to bracket a wink) it *all* comes back to dowsing.(or applied kinesiology) which is really just tuning into the *known*. The actual.
I'd like to do some experiments with the refractometer on food and then compare that to results I get with dowsing. Haven't bought a refractometer yet though. My very practical simple side says we shouldn't need too many tools between us and the answers. Ultimately, I nurture a faint idea of returning to East Africa, where I lived for a time as a young girl, and being able to share what I consider to be methods that all children can learn. And then teach their parents!
Some years back I came across a training for something (to me, unappealingly)called "Results". Its founder was a woman who developed a comprehensive system based on A.K. that could address any level of problem. Physical, energetic, spiritual, and so on...She taught a few teacher trainers, and they taught some, and then she went off to South Africa to train people there. I considered doing the training, but was a bit turned off by the 'structure' of it all. There was a large manual that determined the order in which to do everything: very in-depth, but its *rigidity* put me off a little.
If one didn't follow exact protocol then one wouldn't be a *Results* practitioner, a title I didn't want anyway at the time, since it sounded so 'left-brain' to me, but still...with no legitimate title...
I had a few sessions with a very grandfatherly fellow, at a time of great emotional trial, and it was really quite miraculous--and at the same time utterly simple and made perfect sense.
At a follow-up session -on the phone,since distance works fine, I wanted to address a very sudden pain in one ankle (as if broken) that came up after the first session. He tested for what level needed approaching, and informed me the RX was that we needed to pray. Together,!!! on the phone. This was pretty new stuff to me; although I had very privately just begun to pray, and to be willing to 'offer up' some of the burden I'd been carrying, and be less willfully directed.
We did a short prayer together, not for my ankle, but I've forgotten what arose--it was very spontaneous and (almost) more than a little embarrassing. Definitely a shift in the paradigm. And the next day, my ankle was perfectly sound.
regarding dowsing, AK and all that...
It's all in orienting the mind correctly, to question and then receive,
