The Creative Source is the inner wisdom and guidance that is most often accessed in spiritual, creative, or deep trance states. In a previous article in The Journal of Regression Therapy (Schubot, 1987), I demonstrated how Creative Source Therapy can be a very effective pathway to uncover and heal past-life experiences. This article further elaborates the procedures for using the Creative Source and demonstrates its effectiveness in healing the Inner Child.
Creative Source Therapy uses the methods of Behavioral Kinesiology (Diamond, 1979; Callahan, 1985). It is a procedure that gives instant feedback of the body’s response to a stimulus through muscle testing. The client holds his arm out to the side with his palm facing down, while the therapist places the palm of this hand over the wrist of the extended arm and the other palm over the client’s opposite shoulder. About fifteen pounds of pressure is applied until the therapist determines whether the arm stays strong or becomes weakened. For most clients the contrast between strong and weak responses is very noticeable, although for some the difference can be quite small. The arm stays strong or weak depending on what stimulus the client is encountering in that moment, either from the environment or internally. For example, when the client is focusing on a favorite vacation place in which he is enjoying himself, his arm will test strong. However, when the client is focusing on a conflict in his life in which he has unresolved and unexpressed feelings, his arm will test weak. This same contrast exists when the client is telling a truth or an untruth. For example, if when testing Bill says, “My name is Bill,” his arm will test strong. When Bill says, “My name is Robert,” his arm will test weak.
