How do we know what’s true? One person says one thing and another disagrees. We must find our own truth. There are a couple ways to do this. The first is called kinesiology or muscle testing. This can be done several ways, but the easiest way I have found is to touch the tips of your index finger and your thumb together on one hand. Do the same on the other hand but first link them together like a chain.
Hold your fingers strong while asking a question you know is true. For instance, “my name is Gayle” and try to pull the link apart. The link will hold strong with a true statement. Next, hold your fingers with the same amount of resistance while asking a question you know is false. You can say, “my name is Sarah” while trying to pull the link apart. With a false statement the link will pull apart much easier. You can test the link with other questions you know the answers to. Eventually, you can learn what is true or false by using this method.
The second way to be a human lie detector is to get relaxed and sit quietly. Taking some deep breaths will help. When you feel relaxed, make a statement you know to be true. For example you could say, “I live in a house”. Close your eyes and pay attention to the sensations in your body after making this statement. It’s all about body awareness. It can be helpful to repeat the true statement while feeling your body’s reaction to it.
Next, make a statement you know is false. You might say, “I live in a tent” and see how your body reacts to that statement. Your body will not feel very relaxed with a false statement. When I make this false statement, my body feels tense. The muscles contract and I feel kind of jumpy. That’s the lie detector. Practice will help increase your body awareness and the accuracy of your personal lie detector.
