Two measurements I take at the beginning of a session with a new client are “Biological Age” and “Millivolts,” which together give us a good idea of how your body is doing, overall.

“Biological Age” is an approximation of how your body is aging at the cellular level. It’s a good marker to start with, but it doesn’t change that quickly, so it has its limitations in regard to how we can use the information. I often notice that when progress is being made, the biological age of a client will “stop,” at first, even as the person gets chronologically older. Over time, the number can actually get smaller, but this takes years, as we’re talking about regenerating the body and its organs at the cellular level. Consequently, the Biological Age Index isn’t all that immediately useful for gauging progress.

Measuring a person’s “Millivolts,” however, has proven to be a very useful and fascinating experience for both myself, as a practitioner, and my clients, to gauge more immediate progress.

Quite some time ago, I saw a documentary that explored numerous spiritual and metaphysical theories with modern-day science. One topic they discussed was the energy in a person’s body, which could be measured in millivolts. They found that people who were sick tended to have very low voltages in their bodies, whereas people who were considered “healers,” or athletes, at peak performance, all had very high voltages.

Intrigued by this idea, I familiarized myself with its “Concept Frequency." The Resourcing involves what I call “focal points," or vibrational "targets," so I needed to really get familiar with the “frequency” of what was being measured in the documentary.

After that, I went to work at researching the phenomenon myself. I measured the millivolts of all my clients, of celebrities, of everyone I knew, and it was really interesting what I found: People who were healthier came back with higher numbers, and people with either drug and alcohol problems, or terminal illnesses, yielded very low numbers.

I’ve now spent several years incorporating the “Millivolt Index” in with my research and client sessions, and this is more of what I’ve found:

Under 300 Millivolts — This range seems to be an indication of severe health problems, drug and alcohol abuse, terminal illness (on the lower end), advanced cancer, etc. Consciousness seems to shift more toward primal survival. Also, memories and even current perceptions can become very selective and distorted, as in this range, any information which challenges a person's comfort zone and belief system tends to be immediately rejected. This occurrence may have something to do with how much vital force is required to re-process and clear trauma or emotional baggage; People in this range may simply be lacking the energetic reserves, so their body/mind system quickly "rewrites" reality to accommodate a framework that will be less stressful and threatening to them.

400-600 Millivolts — This range seems to be an indication of “average” health (which also tends to be correlated with less obvious processes of degeneration and a slow decline in vitality, unfortunately). While the focal point is slightly vague, the Resourcing indicates that 85% of the world's population today is under 500 millivolts.

700-900 Millivolts — Starting above the 700 mark, we begin to see above-average vitality and resilience, with higher forms of consciousness emerging. As the body has accomplished a new level of physcial vitality, people in this range really begin to start clearing the energetic residues or their past experiences, deeply reprocessing trauma to retain the wisdom and lessons learned while the energy is cleared, in layers, from the nervous system and cellular memory. Subconscious (and conscious) emotional burdens begin to fall away.

900-1100 Millivolts — This range marks a transition into “way above average.” Interestingly, people above the 900-millivolt mark seem to experience surges in conscious intuitive development, becoming more “vibrationally-oriented” and energy-sensitive.

1200+ = I call the range above 1200 millivolts the “healer range.” Here we find people who are talented energy healers, intuitives and body-workers. Interestingly, my colleagues and I have discovered that people with very high millivolts can actually have a “healing effect” on others, simply by proximity, and that just being in the room with one of these people can make you start to “detox” as if you’re receiving energetic bodywork.

It’s uncertain as to whether or not the Millviolt Indexing measures the same energy being measured in the documentary, as the numbers they reported are slightly different from what I’ve found in my practice and research. This difference could be due to their measuring the voltage externally/peripherally, whereas I may be picking up on the “epicenter” of where the energy is strongest in the body. I do know from experience, however, that the millivolt reading is extremely effective in assessing the state of one’s body and its ability to be a conduit to some sort of “life-force” energy.

One final comment--Interestingly, it seems that trauma can actually alter the nervous system in a way that may raise a person's potential for higher millivolts, presumably through biological mechanisms of neurogenesis and survival. (Millivolts seem to be directly related to the nervous system, which carries energy through the body.) I found this notion to be fascinating, because while so many people often feel "broken" or "ruined" in the wake of trauma, these difficult experiences may actually present opportunities for advanced evolution, spiritual development and higher vitality.

Millivolts can change quite quickly, in months, or even weeks, so it’s a very helpful measurement in gauging the progress of a client, especially if someone is experiencing a lot of healing reactions and is in need some reassurance!
