Helen Keller said that, "A happy life consists not in the absence but in the mastery of hardships."
Please make sure that you (Clinician and client) are well-hydrated at the beginning of a session for the purpose of "cleaning/clearing," and it is recommended that you have some on hand at the closure of a session too.
Water is an excellent conductor of electrical energy/current, and when we are dehydrated, there is interference with our body's energy flow. The body is made up of 70% water.
A molecule of water is broken up into a positively charged hydrogen ion consisting of two hydrogen atoms, and a negatively charged oxygen ion consisting of one oxygen atom (Korzybski p. 686)
Magnetic resonance imaging is a system which utilizes the now-familiar CT computer programs to produce pictures of the human body based on their reaction to high-intensity magnetic fields. Of interest is the fact that current MRI images are based on the distribution and structured qualities of water within the tissues of the human body.
In their revised teachers' edition of Brain Gym (1994), Dr. Paul Dennison and Gail Dennison have written about the importance of water and its role in brain activation, academic skills, and its behavioural and postural correlates. (p. 24) Part of the Brain Gym course is in Edu-K(inesthetics), and exercises include PACE, which stands for Positive, Active, Clear, and Energetic. To start a client off, the practitioner utilizes AK (Applied Kinesiology) testing following each of these four Brain Gym activities:
Positive: Doing Cook's Hook-Ups, which diffuse emotional or environmental stress. The adrenal zip-up/down/up testing can also be done for the same purpose.
Active: Using cross-crawl, which activates the left and right cerebral hemispheres.
Clear: Rubbing the K-27`s (called brain buttons in Brain Gym), which stimulates neurotransmitter production at the synapses in the brain.
Energetic: Drinking sufficient water, which serves as the medium that conducts electricity within the body. (Brain Gym 1, and 2. Course Outline. pps. 4-6)
These exercises are, in fact done in the reverse order, beginning with testing for hydration by the practitioner using AK while holding some of the client's head hair between the thumb and index finger. If the resistance is low, then the client should drink water and be re-tested until the resistance becomes strong and they are then sufficiently hydrated.
It is now generally believed it is the water in our bodies that regulates all functions of the body, including the activity of all the solutes that are dissolved in it. Your bones are quarter water. The muscles that drive your performance are three-quarters water. If you dehydrate a muscle by only three per cent you cause about a 10 per cent loss of contractile strength and eight per cent loss of speed. …When you become dehydrated a cascade of chemical events take place. Your body naturally begins to increase production of histamine. Histamine is present in all body tissues and produced by the mast cells found in connective tissue. Not only is histamine a mediator in inflammation, but it acts as a neurotransmitter, directing and operating the subordinate systems that promote water distribution to various tissues and organs. These subordinate systems involve the action of the hormones vasopresin and reninangiotensin, as well as prostaglandins and kinins. When levels become excessively active the mucus membranes of the lungs, for example, can become irritated and in time the muscles and tissues that make up the breathing mechanism can go into spasm, resulting in severe breathing problems and at worse asthma. This in addition to long term damage to the immune system, is bad news indeed for the athlete. (Christina Robilliard. Athletics Weekly. Sept 15th 1999 p. 22)
Lack of water is considered to be the number one trigger for daytime fatigue - even mild dehydration will slow one's metabolism down by as much as three percent, and some figures suggest that 75% of the population would be considered clinically dehydrated!
At a First Nations workshop with Lee Brown, an addictions counsellor, he made a presentation on the interpretation of dreams. It was interesting to hear that the most common belief about dreams that involve water is that the water will often represent emotions. Flowing water or drifting through water can mean that emotions are naturally being processed or brought to consciousness for recognition and processing, whereas frozen water or crystallized light will often mean that the person is in a state of emotional freeze, or is "numbed out." There are many books and articles on dream interpretation, but maybe the main thing we can look for are obvious signals regarding inner distress, and dreams that are recurring and have a theme to them, though it will most often show as a metaphor. If it is indeed our subconscious trying to give us remembrances of our unfinished business, and we choose to ignore it, then we should not be too surprised if we are later confronted with some physical issue that we can no longer ignore.
As demonstrated by the prototypical homeopathic remedies, vibrational characteristics are usually imprinted upon the universal storage medium of nature: water. The subtle energetic patterns stored within the vibrational essence may be used to affect human beings at a variety of interactive levels. (Gerber p. 242)
Note: For a full understanding of the impact of our thoughts, intentionality, images, and prayers on water, I recommend reading ‘Messages from Water.' Author Masaru Emoto has done some brilliant research and provides stunning photographic images of crystallized water from worldwide sources and the amazing patterns/designs that are formed. Emoto provides clear and dramatic proof that water is truly a mirror reflecting our mind (thought forms).
- 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. It likely applies to half the world's population.
- In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.
- Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.
- One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
- Lack of water is the number one trigger of daytime fatigue.
- Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
- A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, cause trouble with basic math, and cause difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
- Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer. Are you drinking the amount of water you should drink every day? The next lesson will be on Neurological disorganisation – reversals, and correction.
Lesson 9 will be about Neurological Disorganisation or a State of Reversal and the Correction for same.
