At the age of 3, a child's brain usually struggles to adequately copy geometric
symbols of squares, triangles or star, but at the age of 5, the brain of a normal child is
organizing information well enough to do so.
All environmental perceptions affect you through their form. Through visualiza-
tion, it is possible for a skilled individual to negate the effects of form, but for most
people, how you resonate with form and the energies absorbed by it determines how
you are affected by it. To bring balance and harmony in your life, associate yourself
with symbols that will benefit and help you.
As an exercise to test someone's reaction to symbols kinesiologically (see
"Exercise -- Improve Your Physical Strength In 7 Days"), have the person stand in
front of you with his right arm relaxed at his side and his left arm held straight out
parallel to the floor. Place your left hand on his right shoulder and your right hand on
the person's extended left arm just above the wrist. Without smiling or frowning
(because this can affect the test), tell the person to resist with all his strength as you
try to push his extended arm down. Push down on his arm briefly and firmly and
test the strength and spring in the arm. Now show him different symbols to
determine which symbols test weak and which test strong. When he tests weak on a
symbol and the arm goes down easily, then it is obviously a symbol affecting his
energy system in a negative way. Experiment with the 5-pointed star vs the 6-pointed
star, a clockwise spiral vs a counterclockwise spiral, a hexagon vs a pentagon, the
top half of a circle (a frown) vs the bottom half of a circle (a smile), etc.
In lieu of displaying the symbols physically, have the testee simply visualize them
and note the results. If no partner is available, use a kinesiometer or dynamometer
for your own individual muscle testing.
Using the Greek cross where the vertical and horizontal arms are of equal length,
most people do not test weak. Using the Roman cross where the bottom portion of
the vertical arm is longer diminishes your strength and you usually test weak. The
clockwise swastika was an ancient symbol of prosperity and good fortune before it
became the emblem for Hitler's Nazi party. Even Jewish concentration camp
survivors test strong in its presence, displaying a level of symbol response that goes
much deeper than individual feelings. If you test for the counterclockwise swastika,
you might be weak or strong depending on which cerebral hemisphere is dominant.
If you are cerebrally balanced, neither one will weaken you. Also, the more "life
energy" you generate (see "Exercise -- Increase Your Energy, Increase Your
Health"), the less affected you will be by symbols or any other environmental factors.
