The Many Uses of Muscle Testing

and how to make the process as accurate as you can

Over the years I have answered many, many questions about muscle testing, how muscle testing is used, how to make muscle testing more accurate, how people misuse it, and what things to pay attention to. This is a culmination of all those questions. Some people (like young children) pick this up and go with it yet others (usually adults) don’t have the confidence that it takes to use and rely on the muscle testing technique.

For how to do the technique itself, go to my muscle testing handout at:

Before using muscle testing, meditate or pray to be a clear channel and leave your ego out of the answers!

How to get better answers from your muscle testing

These are some of the muscle testing questions I’ve asked over the years:


  • Do I have permission to ask this question?
  • Is this something I should let go of or participate in? (Wu Wei?)
  • Is this for me to become involved in?
  • Can I share this information?
  • Am I asking the right question?
  • Do I need to ask anything else?
  • Is this the best choice for my life purpose or soul’s progress?
  • Is this the best choice for all concerned?
  • Will there be any negative repercussions from following this guidance?
  • Is there anything else I should be asking?
  • Should I get a second opinion?
  • Is this reasonable and in alignment with my morals and values?

Ask yes or no questions—be clear and present when asking.

Ask only one question at a time.

Muscle test amounts of things.

  • Asking how many days you need to fast and if it should be juice, water only, or with other foods and with or without supplements

Using Muscle Testing for Allergy testing:

  • What side effects are being caused by a particular drug? The body’s need for a substance will always override an allergy to the substance. You need to ask if any of your supplements are causing harmful side-effects. Some side effects are not harmful.
  • What grasses, bulbs, trees or pollens you are allergic to?
