Your level of consciousness is your basic level of life. It is the main frequency of energy that you radiate out into the world. It is the level at which you feel, and it has a significant impact on your view of the world.
Dr. David Hawkins worked for over 20 years, to develop the Hawkins’ Consciousness Scale, so that we could have an awareness of what level on consciousness we currently fall under. Once we have this awareness, we can then work towards achieving these higher levels.
The scale ranges from 0 to 1000. The higher on the scale you are, the happier and healthier your life will be. It is also useful to know where you are on the scale, because we tend to attract the the energy and feelings that we put out into the world. When we give off the energy of anger for example, we tend to attract more situations that make us angry. However, when you give off the energy of joy, you tend to attract more of the things that make you happy. According to David Hawkins, the only way to change your circumstances, is to raise your level of consciousness.
Here are the different levels of consciousness.
On the scale there are two major turning points. Once you reach these levels, progressing to the higher levels becomes much easier. These turning points occur at the levels of 200 and 500. At 200, you reach a state of empowerment. You begin to sense that you have control over your own destiny. It is also a breakthrough point, in which you begin to let go of the negative, and live in the positive. Self confidence also begins to emerge at the level of 250. Once you reach the level of 500, you are now living at a state of love. Love becomes a habit, and a way of life for you.
Currently, 85% of people operate at a level below 200. So, most people live in the negative states. However, humanity as a whole operates at a level of 207. How can that be? Strangely enough, those that vibrate higher than 200, particularly those that vibrate at 500 or higher positively impact the collective consciousness. They essentially lift up those around them.
Dr. David Hawkins also found in his research that essentially everything around us can affect our level of consciousness. The people around you, the shows you watch, the books you read, and the music that you listen to. If you want to raise your level of consciousness, and attract a higher energy, then it is very important to surround yourself with positive influences.
Here are some brief descriptions of each level on the scale. Which one do you fall under? Are you in the positive or negative emotions? Look at where you are, knowing that you can move up to where you want to be.
Shame(20) – This level is thought to be just a step above death. It is the level of self-hate. You do not like yourself or your life, and you feel completely hopeless.
Guilt(30) – This level is only a small step above shame. You hold a lot of guilt about yourself, and you view yourself as a bad person. You are completely unable to forgive yourself for the past.
Apathy (50)- You feel hopeless and victimized. You not only lack resources, but also the energy to help yourself. At this stage, people often feel as if they have no control over their lives.
Grief(75) – This is the state of loss, sadness, and depression. Many people temporarily drop down to this level after a loved one is lost.
Fear (100)- You see the world as a scary place, and often worry about what is going to happen next. Most people in this stage are aware that they need to move above this level. They desperately seek safety, hoping that one day they will no longer be afraid.
Desire (125)- This level is the level of addiction. You crave things that you do not have, and you are constantly trying to fill a void. This type of desire has nothing to do with your average wants. It is instead an unhealthy obsession with gaining money, approval, or power.
Anger (150)- You are deeply frustrated with not having your needs and desires met. You are easily angered, and may have a tendency towards hatred. These feelings can often inspire action to move onto the higher levels, however some people remain stuck here.
Pride (175)- You feel good about yourself, but for all the wrong reasons. Your self worth still depends on external factors, such as money or peer approval. Your self confidence is very vulnerable at this stage. Many people here tend to be very defensive, and try to deny anything that doesn’t fit in with their views.
Courage (200)- This is the first level into the positive range of emotions. You feel strong, and are no longer easily overwhelmed in life. You begin to take an interest in improving yourself, because you believe that your future will be better than your past. Many people at this level are eager to learn, whether that means learning about yourself or learning new skills.
Neutrality (250)- You have a “let it be” attitude, and are relaxed and flexible. Some people become lazy at this stage, because this is a comfortable place to be, where you feel that you have nothing to prove. You feel safe.
Willingness (310)- You still feel safe and comfortable, but you have also become more self- disciplined. You begin to get a little more organized, and positive change becomes something that is important to you.
Acceptance (350)- At this level, you become open to a world of possibilities. There is a lot of goal setting, and you are actively working to achieve your goals. Many people change careers, start a business, or drastically change their lifestyle during this stage.
Reason (400)- This is known as the level of medicine and science. You are rarely bothered by negative emotions, and you realize that the lower levels no longer serve you. You think clearly, and strive to make meaning contributions towards others.
Love (500)- You no longer live in the mind, but live in the heart. You live with unconditional love and a true compassion for others. At this level, you will find your true purpose in life. Your intentions are pure, and you may feel as though you are being guided by a force that is greater than yourself. Hawkins claims that this level is reached by only 1 in 250 people.
Joy (540)- This is a state of persistent happiness. You are so happy all the time, that people don’t understand how it is possible for you to live so cheerfully. People feel happier by just being around you, because the energy that you radiate is so strong. You begin to trust your intuition, and allow it to guide you.
Peace (600)- You are now living at complete and utter peace. Negative emotions do not have any influence on you. Hawkins claims that this level is reached by only one person in 10 million.
Enlightenment (700-1000)- The highest level of human consciousness. This is the level of true masters, such as Krishna, Buddha, and Jesus. Even thinking or studying about these people has the ability to raise your consciousness.
Are your dreams overwhelmingly huge? Are your goals so big, that you have no idea how to achieve them? Put your goals into perspective, and they might actually be more achievable than you thought. Here are 3 ways to turn your big dreams into a doable reality.
1. Turn that big number, into a smaller one.
What is your financial goal? Do you want to increase your income by say $10,000 a month? That sounds like a big number, and you may be asking yourself ,how on earth are you going to achieve it. However, if you break that number down, $10,000 a month doesn’t look so bad. $10,000/30 days= $333.33 a day. Now that looks achievable. Can you think of ways to earn an extra $333.33 a day? If you start your own business on the side, $333.33 in sales a day is pretty modest goal.
2. Break up your large goal into a series of smaller goals.
With any large goal, you can be easily overwhelmed without a sense of direction. Take your large goal, and do a little research. Think of everything that you will need to do in order to get there. Make a list of each stepping stone towards your big goal, and set a deadline for each one. This way, you have a series of smaller goals, which ultimately lead you to completing your large goal.
3. Increase your timeline.
Sometimes we seek instant gratification. In the process of wanting results now, we take what should be a long term goal, and make it a short term goal. When we do that, we are not giving ourselves enough time to achieve what we want, and end up disappointed. Weight loss is an excellent example of this. If you want to lose 50 pounds, you can achieve it with time. However, expecting to do this in 1 or 2 months, is much more difficult. In this case, increasing your timeline will give you a better chance at success. If you want to lose 50 pounds in 2 months, that is 25 pounds a month, and that could be quite difficult. If you increase your timeline to a year, then you will only need to lose about 4 pounds a month, or 1 pound a week. Now, that sounds much easier, doesn’t it. Be gentle with yourself, and give yourself the appropriate amount of time.

“When you want something,all the universe conspires in helping you to
achieve it.”- Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
At the warehouse that I worked at, we were allowed to listen to music while we worked. After a while, listening to the same songs over and over again would get old, so I switched to pod casts. I was cleaning shoes, as I normally did, and the Freakonomics radio episode: The Upside to Quitting popped up on my phone, and I thought differently about quitting ever since.
On The Upside to Quiting, economics experts Stephen Dubner and Steve Levitt, interview people who have quit big opportunities like playing minor league baseball, running the Department of Labor, and working at a Fortune 500 company. They also interview psychologists to look at both the mental and economic consequences to quitting.
The greatest thing about the Freakonomics Radio podcast, is that they always try to make you think about a subject, in a way that you have never thought of before.
This may shock some people, because it is the exact opposite of what most of us have been taught. Many of us are programmed to “suck it up”, and never give up. We are taught that we have to deal with things that we may not like, and we must deal with them, simply because someone said we should.
But is that really good enough? I talk to people who are stressed out all the time, and many times I ask them, why does this problem matter to you? Their answers generally range from “because I’m supposed to care about it” to “I don’t want people to be mad at me”, but this doesn’t show me that they actually care about this problem. It just shows me that they are trying to please other people.
In a case like this, the best solution to a problem is to just simply no longer participate in it. If you no longer allow yourself to participate in a problem, then it is no longer a problem. It’s just something that is there, that doesn’t really matter too much.
Of course, not all problems can be solved this way, because some problems really do matter. For example, not being able to pay your rent is a legitimate problem that should be addressed. However, that would probably be a problem that you would truly care about.
So, how can we tell which problems we should take care of, and which ones we should simply walk away from? It all boils down to only participating in problems that you care about on a personal level.
Any time that you find yourself stressing over something, ask yourself, “why do I care about this”. If you find that you give a personal answer that matters to you, such as “this will better my life,” then continue taking care of the issue. However, if you find yourself saying that you care about something, because you are told that you are supposed to care about it. Be honest with yourself, do you really care about it at all, or does someone else just want you to care about it? Ask yourself, should I care about this? If so, why? Does this really affect me personally?
If you can not find a reason why you should care about something on a personal level, then don’t stress yourself out over it. Just simply let it be. You will be much happier and less stressed, when you choose to no longer stress out over things that do not matter to you.
The easiest way to solve a problem is to no longer participate in it.

This tool is to help you during those times where you aren’t quite sure what direction to take in life. It happens to all of us, and having your own personal manifesto can help you see where you want your life to take you.
Having a personal manifesto can be a very powerful tool. It is a reminder of what is important to you, and it can even be used as a guideline to base your decisions off of. Your personal manifesto is based on your core beliefs, so you can test any decision against it, to determine whether something is in line with your beliefs or not. If a particular goal or action is not in line with your core values and beliefs, it will not work for you. Even if it does, it will not make you happy. To be truly happy, you must be living within your core values.
The most important thing with your manifesto, is to see what is most important to you. What do you stand for? What is your core set of values? What is it that gives you joy in life? Pick things like love, family, or personal freedom. Make sure that the things you pick, will be things that you will not grow tired of. This is not the place for specific goals, but a guideline to live by.
Your manifesto can be anything. A personal declaration, a poem, a personal code of ethics; anything you want. It can even be a song if you want it to be. All that matters is that is captures the essence of you, and what is truly important to you.
Make sure to keep your manifesto in a place where you can refer to it regularly. I keep mine in a mini notepad that I carry around. Any time that you have doubts about what direction to take in life, refer back to your manifesto. Read is aloud, and most of the time, you will instantly know whether something aligns with your core values or not.
What did you include in your own personal manifesto? Please share
We all know that massages are amazing, but did you know that they can also greatly impact your health and piece of mind? In fact, when I hurt my shoulder earlier this year, I tried going to the doctor. That didn’t help, so I tried seeing a physical therapist. It helped a little bit, but not as much as I expected. Then I tried seeing a massage therapist, and I felt much better. Not only that, but it was an appointment that I was actually excited to go to. It not only felt great, but it would also clear my head, and put me into a deep state of relaxation.
Massage therapy can:
-Relieve muscle pains.
-Improve your circulation, and reduce blood pressure.
- Help with headaches, anxiety, fibromyalgia, nerve pain, joint pain, and muscle strains.
-Improve your immune system by stimulation your lymphatic system.
Experts estimate that as much as 90% of all diseases and illnesses are related to stress. Massage therapy greatly reduces both your physical and emotional stress, leaving you feeling healthy and rejuvenated. Go it alone, or take a friend with you for some fun girl or couple time. Feel great about treating yourself to a massage. You deserve it!
