Power vs. Force David Hawkins

You just never know when you’re going to connect to something that is important and ancient all in the same moment. This is what occurred to me while I was in training for a new modality and was introduced to Power vs. Force by David Hawkins as a supplementary text.

It was one of those not-so-rare discoveries that I made long after others in the know had been aware of it, not unlike Louise Hay’s You Can Heal Your Life.

Dr. David R Hawkins

In Power vs. Force, I found Hawkins’ covering a lot of information I’d been exposed to previously, like kinesiology, and he presents us with the powerful gift of the “map of consciousness” which is a priceless tool which can be used in both personal and spiritual growth.

His map of consciousness lists the range of human conditions and emotions divided into two categories. As you may have guessed, they are Power and Force.

Anger, which calibrates at 150 in the Map of Consciousness is often the tipping point leading to either negative progression or positive, depending on the response of the person who is expressing anger. Courage, which resonates at 200 is the dividing line between Force (vibratory states below 200) and Power (200 and above) generally enables one to move further up the scale, if he or she can keep from falling to a lower level vibration for whatever reason.

Power is of the spirit, it includes all those states and feelings which are pure, authentic, true, nurturing, and filled with love and above.

We are led to believe contrarily, that Force is the most powerful approach to life, to dominate and control others, to compare ourselves with others, and at the deepest levels feeling depressed, dejected, suicidal, or losing all will to live.

Force represents all thought and effort of the flesh. All things which are possible via our abilities and capabilities, our brute strength. Power, on the other hand, represents the wherewithal and strength accessed from without, beyond the capabilities of mankind, unconditional love, all that is God, and the power of the universe.

Alternative healing and treatment modalities may use various forms of kinesiology to enhance their abilities to interact and intervene in the lives of themselves and others. I know many Chiropractors well-versed in the use of kinesiology as well as many other alternative practitioners and doctors. The practice is more commonly referred to as muscle-testing.

A common use of muscle testing is the outstretched arm of a patient. Items can be placed in the opposing hand of the patient and tested to whether or not the item being held in the opposing hand is good or beneficial for the patient, while the practitioner applies downward pressure to the outstretched arm. If the item being held is beneficial, the arm will remain rigid. If the item is not good for the patient, the arm will weaken and be able to be pushed down.

Likewise, this same method can be used for just about anything which can be answered “yes” or “no” in the universe. Theoretically, by drilling-down using a succession of yes or no answers, anyone who practices kinesiology could practically discover the truth of most anything.

If the idea does not inspire you, think about this excerpt from the forward of Hawkins’ book:

IMAGINE-what if you had access to a simple yes-or-no answer to any question you wished to ask? A demonstrably true answer…. Any question. Think about it. There’s the obvious: “Jane is seeing another guy.” (Y/N?) Johnny is telling the truth about school. (Y/N?) But it’s only a short step to: “This is a safe investment.” (Y/N?) or “This career is worthy of my pursuit.” (Y/N?)

Hawkins also possessed a keen awareness of the truth continuum with the knowledge that all truth was subjective, based on the perspective of the observer at a particular point in time and space.

The most startling bit of information is that all of this is a free gift to all of us. It is built into each of us and can be accessed by any human being, though practice is necessary for most of us to develop any level of accuracy. I have known some people to who were born with the natural ability to access the process of kinesiology intuitively, not knowing there was such a name for the process.

While sounding quite “Woo-woo” on the surface, kinesiology has survived the test of time and weathered scientific testing, and it is practiced by traditional medical practitioners and doctors, as well as allopathic.

You can see the enormous value and impact that kinesiology and Hawkins’ Map of Conscious can have in the world of healing, therapeutic science, self-improvement, and spiritual awakening.

Raise Your Vibration to Love and Above

When you’re trying to establish and maintain a vibration frequency of love and above (Dr. DR Hawkins’ 500+) can be a task, especially if you’ve spent a great deal of your life, or a stretch of time in lower vibrations.

I talk about vibration and frequency a lot, so if you haven’t yet read Power vs. Force by David Hawkins, here’s a brief overview of the frequency vibrations in the form of a chart, to give you an idea about what to expect:

Wherever your base vibration is set at, you’re going to be attracting more of that in your life, that’s why I feel it’s important to keep my personal level up and around the 500+ range, and sometimes, the love vibration is difficult to maintain when you’re not feeling it.

If you’ve spent a great deal of your life vibrating in the lower states, it so easy to fall back down to those frequencies because, even though they are basically contrary to what might be your (my) highest and best, because your emotional mindset has grown accustomed to that state. In a way, your being has a sense of familiarity, even safety, in those vibrations.

Below 200, is where our shadow self vibrates in force and thrives, we rack up most of our habits (the less than desirable ones, anyway), as you increase or raise your vibration into power, the easier it is to leave those old tendencies behind.

If you’re focusing your attention on love, this is a wide spectrum covering all the vibrations, mostly because there are so many types of love, but if you’re looking for that true love (the 500+ love) be aware of what you’re looking for, because this is unconditional love, not the you-do-something-for-me and I’ll-do-something-for-you type of love, you’re used to looking for, but the “I love you no matter what” kind of love

This is the unselfish love, and if you’re unaccustomed to vibrating there it can take some focused attention and you may have to diligently work to raise your love vibration, getting you from where you are to where you’d like to be.

Unconditional love doesn’t come from someone else, it comes from you. So, be forewarned that the work that needs to be done doesn’t have anything to do with anyone else but you. Real, true, authentic, unconditional love starts with you. If you can raise your vibration and maintain it at 500, all the love you could possibly want will come to you, because that is what you are.

Briefly, you have to start with getting comfortable being uncomfortable. Your base vibration is where you feel at home, so raising your vibration can be interesting (maybe even scary from where you’re at) and feel uncomfortable, and that’s okay, even a good sign that you’re doing the right kind of work, but don’t worry; it gets easier, as you go along.

You’ll be taking some risks and accepting challenges, most likely trying things you’ve never done before, thinking in ways that you haven’t tried before, and feeling like you’re just going through the motions at first, but once you get in the groove (vibration) you will start to feel much better about your exploration in these new arenas.

Say goodbye to stress. I know, this may sound impossible from where you are, right now, but fear not. Stress is like an anchor and it will always drag you back into force. So, be thinking about ways to avoid stress in your life. Force is like swimming against the current and power is like complete buoyancy.

Your feelings are an accurate gauge of what’s happening around you, where your vibration is tuning in to, find ways to tune into your heart and let it be your guide. Find activities in the higher vibrations that you enjoy or have a sense of satisfaction when you’re involved in them.

Find ways to connect with your intuition. If you feel at a lack of any intuition whatsoever, find ways to nurture it and connect with it more and more.

The more aware you are about your life and what’s happening around you, the earlier you can divert stress, strain, difficult circumstances and find the exit, which leads to opportunities to achieve a higher vibration.

Embrace the power of your imagination. Your imagination thrives in power (not so much in force), and make appointments and goals that use the power of your imagination in creative situations and circumstances.

Expand your consciousness by reading books, or otherwise exposing yourself to new ideas that you may have rejected in the past, when you were vibrating at a lower level.

Find ways to volunteer, support, or share with others about what you’re learning. Remember there’s no need for you to “follow” anyone, only to glean what you can (that which applies to you and your journey) and keep moving on. Nothing is more personal or unique as you and your journey.

Connect to others, share your experiences (with those who can hear you) and listen to the experiences of others, as you become a part of the growing network of individuals who are awakening, expanding and evolving. You are taking part in the evolution of mankind on this planet and we’re all in this together.

Moving up the emotional frequency ladder may be uncomfortable at first, and it will take some commitment, dedication and some elbow grease, but you can do this. Because when you were born, this was your destiny.

It may have been beat out of you by life, family, society, circumstance or even in the pursuit of what you thought was love, but it is there, waiting for you. Love is begging you to come home and enjoy all the “Love and Above” that you had ever hoped for… and so much more.
