The map of consciousness, developed by David Hawkins, was created to develop an understanding of how powerful our thoughts are, and how they directly influence our lives. The testing uses a muscle reaction technique called Applied Kinesiology. The research was scientifically-validated and published in Dr. Hawkins’ doctorate dissertation titled Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis and Calibrations of the Level of Human Consciousness. Basically his test proved the connection between energy and the thoughts we carry. This scale is straight forward and can be applied immediately into your life. Deliberate practice is of utmost importance when attempting to apply this strategy into your life. The highly sought after benefits take a while to dial-in.
It all comes down to thought adjustment, deliberately changing the mind through simple thought changes. Below is a list of low thinking patterns, followed by the correcting high consciousness thought pattern.
At first most people have huge resistance against this approach. But, the mind-body connection is slowly revealing more and more science that supports these claims. I suggest you be very open minded while challenging yourself to overcome old beliefs and creating new a thought approach to life.
The other options is to completely commit and believe to these principles right off the bat. We all know how powerful our minds can be when our stubborn thinking will not let go of a belief!
