This is another concept that is not part of some kinesiology systems. Where it is used, the understanding is that there are connections between people that directly affect a person’s health and well-being. One person may try consciously or subconsciously to bind someone else to them and dictate the course of the other person’s life. These terms recognise that this can operate at an unseen, energetic level as well as more obviously through verbal communication and behaviour. These energetic connections can come about as a result of an argument not satisfactorily being resolved or a parent not allowing a child to become independent or, some practitioners would argue, from a past life encounter.
