The Clarity Meter: What is it? Is it still a thing?

I received an e-mail the other day from advertising the Clarity Meter and it reminded me that we used a similar machine in the late ’60’s and early ’70’s to detect areas of disturbance or trauma in the client; and, when the trauma was treated, checking to see that it has been successfully resolved.

The meter is a skin galvanometer and measures changes in skin conductivity – with what ease or resistance electrical impulses move throughout the body.

About Amy

Everything is changing all the time.


Sometimes forgetting is better than always watching.

Checking, having to remember, fearful of forgetting, writing lists. The feeling that we must always be on the alert to prevent our world from falling apart.

Fuck that! Relax – let it go. Come what may! Come on, I can take it.



“Escape” is the I Ching advice for my day connected to my biorhythms (another story).

There is no escape until….and even then….who knows? If the Christians have it right, I’m in jail or purgatory forever.

If the Buddhists nailed it, I could be reborn a cockroach or a goddess…also forever?

The Jews? not a clue.

The Muslims? Am I IN the harem or do I get reborn a man (a la the Tibetans) and HAVE the harem? And is it men or women in the harem…such confusion.

How about the Mormons? I get to be on some guy’s planet-who?? Which husband?

I like the line from the movie “Still Alice”:

“Just take the pills-ALL the pills-make sure you are alone-go to bed and go to sleep”.




“‘Be here now’ – that’s so yesterday” – Amy



A thought about the EFT line “Even though I have such-and-such a condition – I love and accept myself fully and completely“.

Wow! that’s a heavy one and frequently results in a flood of tears and two or three sessions for the client to get anywhere near this place of unconditional self-regard, love and acceptance. This is a thing in itself with many ramifications and threads to follow and clear.

Meanwhile your client came in for something else to resolve: a loss, sadness, a headache and so on. So we’ve gone off track with this “love and acceptance” thing.

Let’s keep it open, unjudgemental, undemanding and real.

“Even though he left me and I feel lost I believe in myself“.

That feels right doesn’t it?
