Mind-Body Connection: Balancing the Spiritual & Physical | with Kim White

Kim White is a track athlete who had won national and international titles, and he was training for selection in the 1992 Australian Olympic team when he noticed that, despite every other factor in his training and regimen being controlled, his performance could change depending on the hotel room he slept in the night before the race. He realized that the environment could have a positive or negative impact on his race performance.

As a little kid, Kim had always loved constant improvement. When he started going for a goal that was so incredibly far—the Olympic gold medal—he lost the connection with his love for constant improvement, and that led to him straining himself and receiving injuries. He eventually had a career-ending injury a week before the trials. So Kim went on a journey to discover how he had been injured, and that is what led him down the road of kinestheology and the mind-body connection.

While Kim was in California studying kinesiology and the body-mind connection, he met a spiritual teacher, Victor Baron, who taught him spiritual healing using many shamanic methods, while having God and Jesus Christ as the core foundation of all of his work. He taught Kim with ways to energetically clear and change the environment to align with his clients’ goals, as well as how he could remove their pain and blockage. It was a return to spirituality after years of being separate from it, and a reminder that he had been called to the church since a young age.

In April 1994, Kim moved back to Australia to continue his healing practice. He’s been consulting as an energy and business coach and as a space clearer for over 27 years and across 35 countries. He continues his studies with Victor Baron to improve his abilities and increase his spiritual strength so that he can help more people.

Today, Kim uses what he’s learned—combining his study of kinestheology with spiritual healing—to coach people and remove blockages from their body. People are often skeptical, but you don’t have to understand the therapy for it to work.
