– Now Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the field.” While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him.Genesis 4, Bible
– Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?”
“I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
A lie is an assertion that is believed to be false, typically used with the purpose of deceiving someone. The practice of communicating lies is called lying, and a person who communicates a lie may be termed a liar. Lies may serve a variety of instrumental, interpersonal, or psychological functions for the individuals who use them. Generally, the term “lie” carries a negative connotation, and depending on the context a person who communicates a lie may be subject to social, legal, religious, or criminal sanctions.
In simple words, it is a misrepresentation, when you know one thing, and say or do to another. Cheating is deliberate and accidental, conscious or not noticeable to the person himself, but people are usually very sensitive to any deception. Most often, people lie either for profit, or out of a sense of fear, or because of habits and well-established values. It is on a personal level. At the subconscious level, it is always about profit.
Who benefits lie?
People carry a heavy burden of emotional pain that they don’t want to feel, while the subconscious mind comes up with tricks to avoid this pain. This is the creation of excuses for why in this situation it is necessary to deceive someone. Often a person simply does not see any other way out. It is worth noting that most of the time both parties get the benefit: the one who cheats and the one who is deceived. For example, when you need to evade the laws of the state or public morality:
- A police officer stopped a car for violation. The driver sticks the bill into the documents and gives it to the officer, while he says that he has not broken the law, and the documents are in order. The employee takes the money, agrees and releases the driver.
They deceived each other, but on the feelings remained in balance and got the benefit.
- Policeman stopped the car, which was driven according rules. Moreover, he accuses the driver of speeding and writes him a fine.
Obviously, in this case, only policeman employee benefits. In fact, the driver also has a hidden benefit, it is just not obvious and buried somewhere in the subconscious. For example, he wants to prove that policemen are dishonest. There can be a lot of variants, as each case is individual.
What is deception on a subtle level?
In terms of inner energy and relationships, deception occurs at the heart level. Trust at the heart level means unity. If a person recognizes and trusts another, then a connection with him arises at the heart level. In this case, he perceives any benefit as a benefit for both. He begins to intuitively understand what actions are beneficial for the partner, and what are not. Thus, balance is maintained, and deception does not cause harm.
If a person, for whatever reason, decides to do something beneficial for himself, but not beneficial for a partner, he thus breaks the connection and hurts the partner. In fact, it also hurts himself, but most people don’t feel it.
In this case, the balance is disturbed, and deception is the deliberate attack hurting another person.
How to know that you are being deceived
Based on the foregoing, cheating presents a problem when its results hurt. In this case, the person who is cheating upsets the balance. At the same time, the balance in the work of the left and right parts of the brain is disturbed, a chain reaction occurs throughout the body, muscle tone weakens. Thus, the medical approach to lie detection based on the physiological reactions of the body and the results of the polygraph is quite close to the truth. In the absence of special devices, you can resort to a kinesiology test.
The method is based on the phenomenon of “functional muscle weakness”, that is, a temporary decrease in muscle tone in response to effects on the body or psyche. This quick involuntary weakening of muscle tone always outstrips voluntary muscle movements controlled by the mind, which allows us to receive “purely emotional reactions” from the psyche through the muscles that have not passed through the filters of consciousness.
It is worth noting that the above method is applicable when people really want to make contact with each other and make agreement, but even in this case, the kinesiology test can bring false results. In the subconscious can be such severe distortions that most approaches will give incorrect results. Thus, a great deal of experience in conducting a kinesiology test is needed. More details can be found in the wonderful book “Truth vs Falsehood”.
But what to do with a stranger who is unlikely to agree to be tested? How do you know whether he is telling the truth or lying? In this case, experience and an intuitive understanding of what is happening is also necessary. A person can only be deceived if he deceives himself. Strength makes us stronger, deception makes us weaker. Feel yourself! Do you have a feeling of strength as a result of interacting with this person or you become weak?
