Professional MAP
by C. Overhauser

I've been doing triangle balancing work with some of my clients. This has brought about significant improvements in symptoms that had been really stuck.

It has been fascinating going through this process with different clients because they have responded well. At the beginning of a session, I may have gotten a hint from my [Professional MAP] team to ask about triangle balancing. If I do that, I explain that we all have energy structures in triangles, and that if a point or link is weakened we can experience difficulty. I ask my team to give the client an insight about one point of a triangle needing balancing. I then use kinesiology to verify. This is a nice way to keep the client actively participating in this process.

When I'm doing the triangle balancing, the clients are lying on a treatment room table, and I am in a chair beside them, with my expanded soil balancing kit and essences on a table next to me. I have them put their hand on my shoulder while I am testing for balancers and stabilizers. I ask them to disconnect their hand when I ask Pan to shift the balancers and stabilizers to the point or link involved. While it may not be necessary to ask them to disconnect, I find it keeps them "present" and focused on the process.

First, I test each of the three points, starting with the point I have already identified, then each of the three links. I work with Pan to shift the balancers to the particular point we're working with, then I test for stabilizers and do the same thing. If I have never mentioned Pan by name, I ask that "my treatment room team" shift the balancers or stabilizers to the point or link involved and inwardly I let Pan know that I mean him. After each "shift" of balancers and stabilizers, I wait ten seconds and ask if this shift is now complete. There have been two times so far when an additional ten or twenty seconds were necessary to complete the shift. Some of the points or links may not need anything at all. After testing all of the points and links, I ask the team to look at the triangle again to see if further balancing or stabilizing is required. On a couple of occasions one point or link has required additional balancing or stabilizing.

Some clients who have highly developed sensory systems experience sensations or shifts going on during the process. Others just feel deeply relaxed. Usually, clients seem to go into an altered state when I do the triangle balancing. Usually after a short time, the clients are in such a deeply relaxed state that their hands keep falling off my shoulder. Additional work may be needed to ground the triangle balancing. This may mean (in my case) doing some acupuncture or Zero Balancing immediately after a triangle balancing, or later. I test to see what is needed, and when. Triangle balancing can sometimes be a lengthy process. Sometimes, one or more triangles need balancing at the same time. Sometimes, I need Nasturtium Essence during the process to help maintain my own focus.

I have several clients who are very sensitive, and I've learned a lot about triangles from their experiences. For example, some triangle points are not in the body. They can be an energy center outside the body, or a chakra. My team tells me an acupuncture meridian can also be the point of a triangle. Sometimes a "point" is a generalized area, such as "lower back" or "left hip." My team seems content with a fairly generalized "point." Sometimes the particular balancers or stabilizers that are needed help to identify one of the unknown points. In any case, it's nice to know that a triangle can be balanced without having to know what every point is.
