HAVE YOU EVER noticed that there are some people who seem to drain your energy and make you feel weak? And then there are also their opposite. There are people you encounter who make you feel strong, energized and happy without their doing anything.
Those who drain your energy and weaken you are sometimes called “psychic vampires.” Now, they are not really bad people; they are not aware of the effect their presence has on you. They have no intention of doing harm to you. It is just, perhaps, their energy is weak and they unconsciously suck your energy. They draw strength from other people’s energy.
A medical practitioner, Dr. John Diamond, discovered that not only people but also objects and pictures can either strengthen or weaken your body’s energy field.
He discovered this by showing people a picture or an illustration and testing their energy or strength through Applied Kinesiology or muscle testing.
Applied Kinesiology is done this way, according to the book “Your Body Does Not Lie” by Dr. John Diamond:
1. Have the subject stand erect, right arm relaxed at his side, left arm held out parallel to the floor with elbow straight.
2. Face the subject and place your left hand on his right shoulder to study him. Then place your right hand on the subject’s extended arm just above the wrist.
3. Tell the subject you are going to try to push his arm down as he resists with all his strength.
4. Now push down on his arm quickly and firmly. The idea is to push just hard enough to test the spring and bounce in the arm. Not so hard that the muscle becomes fatigued. It is not a question of who is stronger, but of whether the muscle can lock the shoulder joint against the push.
Was the subject able to resist the process? In nearly every case, he will be, his arm will remain extended.
5. Now test again as the subject does one of the following things:
Eats refined sugar
Stares at a fluorescent lamp
Thinks of an unpleasant situation or sad experience.
6. The result will be dramatic. In nearly every case, the subject will be unable to resist the pressure. His arm will go down, although the same pressure is applied.
It takes some practice to get the hang of using muscle testing or AK to ensure that you do not unconsciously vary the strength of your downward push of the subject’s arm. Otherwise, it is not a reliable test.
When you have become quite proficient in applying muscle testing to determine the effect of different foods, objects or pictures on your energy, you can almost instinctively tell if something you are looking at or holding in your hand weakens or strengthens you.
This subtle energy exchange between two people can perhaps explain what happens in the case of a local phenomenon called “usog.” This refers to the sudden depletion of energy usually of a baby when confronted by a strong energy of an adult. If he greets or touches a baby, the latter suddenly becomes ill or cries out, as if in pain.
The local belief to counteract this is for the adult to put a small amount of his saliva on the forehead of the child and the latter immediately stops crying, or if he develops a fever, the fever suddenly disappears.
Western-trained medical doctors, of course, laugh at this belief because they can find no rational or scientific basis for such a belief. But this theory of exchange of energy and depletion of the baby’s energy by the adult (though done unconsciously) seems to be a reasonable explanation of why it happens, although we cannot explain it scientifically.
I also have encountered several cases of individuals getting ill (usually having fever) after passing by a big tree that is inhabited by elementals (dwende or kapre). Perhaps the strength of the elementals’ energy may have depleted the person’s energy.
This also probably explains why holding a strong quartz crystal or power object can have a healing effect on a person or at least strengthen his energy field. This presupposes that holding an object with negative energy, for instance, an object belonging to a highly negative person, or one belonging to an earth-bound spirit, can deplete one’s energy.
It would, therefore, be advisable for doctors and healers to be aware of the invisible or subtle influence of objects or even another individual’s energy field that may cause illness.
Note that there are people who suddenly get well at the mere presence of a strong healer or doctor with positive magnetic energy.
