Lateral fluctuations are in the fluid body and can express a lesion in the fluids, or the potential for the system to be creating a treatment manifestation. We know that the fluid body is in reality one organism connected by billions of cells and there are different rates of fluctuations that can be happening simultaneously. The fluid field is a breathing organism that is responding to forces from outside of itself. It is primary respiration and it is intelligent. These fluctuations occur often times in the mid-tide. It is perceived as a transverse wave or motion. But, there is also a vertical movement because the field is literally a 3 dimensional liquid crystalline matrix.
It’s often difficult to detect. I have been taught that when the system is attempting to balance itself, that is when you might perceive that motion. It’s still a mystery about what is creating it. Originally Dr. Sutherland said it was due to a reaction from the tissues, specifically from the brain and meningeal dura. But, to this day its still an unknown mystery. One can only say that it is birthed from the life force and can be attributed to the “Breath of Life.”
A lateral fluctuation happens on a transverse axis, it appears on one side of a fulcrum to the other side. Like a seesaw or an infinity sign with its fulcrum containing the still point. Dr. Sutherland said it occurred 25-30 times a minute. A force moving in one direction to another. It’s not linear, it’s more of looping around a fulcrum.
One can incite or retard the fluctuations depending on your insights. Weakness in the system would be the grounds for inciting the system, jumpstarting so to speak. Usually from the temporal bones.` And then the opposite would be true. Take it to the still point. Look to the stillness to where the motion is taking place, the fulcrum where the power is organizing itself.
This is ultimately where your perception needs to be. Don’t focus too deeply at that point or you will lock the system up. The automatic shifting reveals the lateral fluctuation and then the system will begin to adjust after the still point. There has been a healing, a transmutation and the shape of the fluid body has changed. The entire system now has to reestablish itself to the changes that have transpired and this will continue for a few days after the treatments.
YOU WILL NOT SEE IT IN ALL YOU CLIENTS, SO DON’T LOOK FOR IT! They are generally there when something is in need of deep healing. When a system is relatively balanced, those fluctuations are not there. Unless the system is in need of healing it won’t be present.
Gratitude for being allowed to perceive the client’s system is the first step in being able to perceive and hold Stillness. Silence is Golden. You must learn how to come into contact with the Primary force of the fluid body without disturbing it. This is the journey! Perceiving the space between movement and stillness!
