Dr. Artour Rakhimov describes how testing is done on three points on the body and both eyes and this can maybe be considered as an objective test of the presence of trauma and also an objective criteria of completion as we can retest those points and make sure that from being weak they become strong. Lynn Himmelman responds that this acts as another fail safe to determine whether or not the trauma has been successfully released.
Occasionally it can happen that through the inquiry process we have not quite hit upon the true heart of the matter so that even though you have taken someone through the forgiveness process you get to the end of it and you check. She calls this a checking procedure rather than a test because sometimes we feel daunted by the idea of being tested. So we check in again to see whether or not there has been a shift in the body's response to the people or situation involved in that trauma. Basically, we want to make sure that this person is no longer having a weakened response.
If the weakened response is still there and after waiting a minute or two it is still present, that would be an indication that we need to continue and make a deeper enquiry. There may be some nugget or little piece that we have not fully addressed that we would need to identify to break up the hold that the trauma has had on the person.
People that have had trauma chronically over-breathe in their unconscious breathing patterns. This causes poor psychological and physical health. By improving your body-oxygen levels you improve your mental and physical well-being.
