Today I'm going to start a little backward. The theme will be "kinesiology," but before explaining the term, first a few words on Dr. David Hawkins. In this post, we'll explain why we're starting backward.
Dr. David. R. Hawkins is a Ph.D. in Psychiatry and a lifetime member of the American Psychiatric Association. During his 50 years of research work, he conducted research with many Nobel Prize winners. He also received a knighthood from the Queen of Denmark. He has published quite a few very interesting books (about which a few words later). In any case, we are dealing with a very reliable and respected person. And I'm writing about it because the method he developed seems weird.
Based on his 29-year research, Hawkins proved that man can naturally distinguish truth from falsehood (or, more accurately, it should be said: from untruth).
What is Kinesiology?
The reaction of our muscles is a sure test. An incredibly simple test is to press down on an outstretched arm and test its response to a statement or picture. If the statement is true, if the image is positive - the subject's arm will not fall under pressure. It will be strong. If the opposite is true, your arm will respond with muscle weakness and lower.
When Dr. Hawkins first encountered "kinesiology" he was a successful man. As he tells about himself, at that time, at the age of 38, he experienced a spiritual transformation and experienced the miraculous healing of a serious illness. From then on, he devoted himself mainly to the study and development of "kinesiology".
Consciousness level scale
He has developed a scale that allows you to calibrate the level of consciousness of an individual, group of people, a philosophical system, idea, political movement, company, any geographic area, and even all of humanity in any historical period.
Everything is based on the principle that man is part of a larger whole. That it is the same energy that manifests itself in different forms. The energy is unlimited, both in space and time. Consequently, it does not matter when we ask the question and with respect to what "object" or time. The universe (through us) will always respond. "I am in the universe and the universe in me."
The most important thing is to assume that our bodies can't lie or cheat. There are no beliefs or fears that our psyche serves us. So there are no barriers in our body that separate us from the pure knowledge of God, Higher Power, Universe, or Energy (choose the name that suits you best).
The scale that Hawkins developed is between 1 and 1000. 1 is the lowest level of consciousness. 1000 is the level of God. The scale is logarithmic (and therefore not linear, not proportional). According to Hawkins, the 200 is a breakthrough. This is where Integrity, Honesty begin. Below is suffering, fear, and aggression. Level 350 is Acceptance. 500 is Love. The range 700-1000 is the area of the Enlightenment. Perhaps in the following episodes, I will write more about the understanding of these particular concepts in relation to this scale, because it is very important.
Today, however, I will mention that according to Hawkins, humanity as a whole exceeded the level of 200 at the end of the 20th century! And here is an amazing curiosity - according to him, it happened at the moment when Poland dismantled the socialist system. Way to go!
As a result of exceeding the level of 200 (which is also generally the level of intellect), the Anglo-Saxon world began to turn towards spirituality. And this can be clearly seen. The number of books, courses, and trends related to personal development that have appeared in the West since the end of the last century is staggering. The entire New Age movement is the best example of this.
Finally, a short quote from Hawkins' book “Power vs Force”:
Man thinks he lives by virtue of the forces he can control, but in fact, he’s governed by power from unrevealed sources, power over which he has no control. Because power is effortless, it goes unseen and unsuspected. Force is experienced through the senses; power can be recognized only through inner awareness.
I recommend this book to all "deep seekers" 🙂
Different meanings of the term "kinesiology"
I owe you an explanation as to why we started backward at the beginning 🙂
The term "kinesiology" in its original form is associated with the academic world.
“Kinesiology is a common name for college and university academic departments that include many specialized areas of study in which the causes and consequences of physical activity are examined from different perspectives. Many colleges and universities around the world have schools of kinesiology. These institutions are 4 – 7 year courses leading to BS, MA and Ph.D. degrees. A kinesiologist is a person who has completed one of these programs graduating with one of these degrees.”
But since another scientist, Dr. Goodheart, for the first time in history, in the early 1960s, began researching the response of human muscles to a "non-physical" accumulator, the term "kinesiology" has spread to this very area. According to various sources, there are currently around 80 different forms of therapy related to human muscle response that use the term “kinesiology”.
