Did you know that consciousness creates your reality?
YEP. Why? That's simple.
Consciousness is energy. It's your beliefs, emotions, and thoughts, resulting in how you show up in this world. It's how you make choices and decide whether to take action. And get results.
Let's say, for example, you want to buy a dream home.
You could think: "Yes, I afford it or at least find ways of making it a reality." And you'd have uplifting emotions, right? And then you'd take action like going online to check the available homes, for a real estate agent, or your money plan options.
Step-by-step, you'd move in the direction of your dream home.
It's the belief "Yes, I can" that moves you forward and towards your result.
On the other hand, if you'd think: "A dream home? No way. That's not in my cards!" You'd create disempowering emotion and would probably stop right there. No action and then sadly no result.
This logic applies to anything in life.
Thoughts and emotions become actions, and that leads to your result.
It's so simple.
Now, what would you say if I'd tell you, you can level up your consciousness and by that magically level up your entire life?
Getting results much quicker, much easier? Because on top of the equation thought & emotions = actions = results, you'd be more in alignment with your Universal guidance, make better, because more aligned choices and are in much better health and flow?
Well, you guessed it;). You absolutely can.
Dr. David Hawkins has given us a very helpful tool to understand the correlations between consciousness (again thoughts and emotions), our overall well-being, and the ability to shape our outer world:
The Map of Consciousness®.
By becoming aware of the consciousness you are mostly in, you can decide to level it up and take action upon this decision.
We're no victim to our circumstances. When we know, we have the chance to change it.
So let's begin by giving you a short heads up where this Map comes from, and then a deep dive into the Map step by step.
2. How did The Map of Consciousness of Dr. David Hawkins come about?
Dr. Hawkins (1927 - 2012) was a psychiatrist and best-selling author. He was convinced that spirituality could help heal people and thus this planet.
During 20 years of research, Dr. Hawkins used muscle testing and conducted more than 250,000 calibrations to define a range of values, attitudes, and emotions that correspond to levels of consciousness. This range of values--along with a logarithmic scale of 1 to 1,000--became the Map of Consciousness, which Dr. Hawkins first wrote about in his New York Times bestseller, Power vs. Force.
3. Now: The Map
As we now know, The Map of Consciousness® is an essential framework on human consciousness and associated energy fields. Now I'll walk you through the map (from lowest to highest) and what you can do right away to reflect is ask yourself: Where am I currently mostly at? Of course, emotions are dynamic, so we're not happy-clappy or super angry all day long. So where are you MOSTLY vibrating at? Write it down without judgement.
The Out Of The Zone 1
- Or how I call it the "Under The Blanket Stage"
At the very bottom of the scale is the consciousness of shame (at 20), guilt (at 30), apathy (at 50), grief (at 75), and fear (at 100).
It's when you really can't create much, feeling stuck in negative emotions and turning in cycles. When I work with clients who are mostly in that state or get there quickly, it's evident to show them how to create positive energy, so they get motivation and energy to get out of bed at all.
Out of the Zone 2
- Or how I call it the "Treadmill Stage"
Moving up, we have the consciousness of desire (at 125), anger (150), and pride (175).
Now, there is some movement, sometimes even hyperactivity, but without much purpose. I have been in that state primarily until my transformation and on a treadmill. I lived to outside expectations and status and was in a high-performance job that allowed me to run away from myself. But what made me feel exhausted most of the time.
Both out of the Zone stages are, according to Dr. Hawkins, linked to poor health. It's where you mostly identify with your body and your outside circumstances, opinions, and priming
- or how I call it the "Action Stage"
Now, finally, there is positivity in the mix, which means more productivity, happiness, and good health. You take action, face your traumas and let go of the illusion of being trapped. You take self-responsibility for your life and create it.
The consciousness we're talking about is courage (at 200), trust (at 250), optimism (at 310), and forgiveness (at 350).
To me, it's when you start to awaken to your power and authentic purpose. And when you realize how much you can actually influence in your world. Not feeling like a victim to circumstances any longer but a creator of life.
This stage is exciting because so much development takes place. You start to listen to your intuition more and more and feel the richness of being alive.
And then it just gets better...
- Or how I call it the "Eagle Stage"
This stage is reached when you vibrate mostly at 400, which is the consciousness of understanding.
Understanding of yourself and others. Not being overly identified with the ego anymore but able to see the world from very different angles and viewpoints. Without getting triggered or reactive. And creating meaningful relationships with others.
- Or how I call it the "Magician Stage"
It's when you vibrate at love (500) or above: gratitude (519), joy (540), and peace (600). Or enlightenment being the absolute highest at 1000.
Now bliss and ultimate flow enter your life. Being in great health and vitality, connected to yourself, others, the world, and the universe at large.
In this stage, oh my gosh, so many synchronicities are happening. And it feels as if you don't put any effort into anything anymore. It's just playing and serving and living.
