Consciousness Calibration


In 2014 I picked up a book called Power vs Force by Dr David Hawkins. It changed the course of my life. 

Hawkins suggested that there was a ‘scale’ that could be calibrated from 1-1000 to determine the ‘power’ or truth of a specific idea or object. These calibrations could be found by ‘muscle testing’. 


The History Of Muscle Testing

In the 1960’s Dr. George Goodheart developed ‘Applied Kinesiology‘. Otherwise known as ‘muscle testing’, Applied Kinesiology determined whether a remedy was beneficial for the human body. If the muscle tested held firm, the substance could be considered ‘good’ for the body. The substance could be considered ‘bad’ if the tested muscle went weak.

Dr. John Diamond took this work further in the 1980s. He found that images, philosophies, music, art etc., could also affect one’s physiology. Dr. Diamond’s work presented a theory that human life force is affected by everything that interacts with it, whether positive or negative.


Dr. David Hawkins

Dr. David Hawkins built on Goodheart and Diamond’s work by discovering that the muscle test is a non-local response from the field of consciousness (or the zero point field if we use scientific language).

Hawkins proposed that kinesiological muscle testing could be used to discern truth from falsehood and determine degrees of truth via one’s power or energy level. 

This discovery led Hawkins to calibrate people, theories, philosophies, books, statements, spiritual scripture, organisations, sports… (you name it) over decades of research. 

If you are new to the work of Dr David Hawkins, consider reading an overview of the Map of Consciousness. It will assist in making sense of the calibrations.

Consciousness Calibrations

Consciousness Calibrations –

Dr David Hawkins used muscle testing to calibrate the degree of truth in people, places, philosophies, spiritual practices etc.

The levels typically calibrate from 0-1000 (although some go higher in higher domains), with 0 being the lowest level of consciousness, and 1000 being the highest that can be contained by the human nervous system.

Examples of various topics and the consciousness calibration levels are below.
