In my previous post, I gave a few definitions of consciousness and stated that our access to the Heart (also know as Spirit, Soul, Higher Self, Love, Truth, Essence, or God) is determined by the level of our individual consciousness. The higher the level of our consciousness – the freer the access to the Heart.
How can we assess the level of our individual consciousness?
In my opinion, the most comprehensive modern research on consciousness has been done by a psychiatrist, scientist, and mystic Dr. David Hawkins and his colleagues at the Institute of Consciousness in Sedona, Arizona. Hawkins used an interesting procedure known as kinesiology for calibrating levels of consciousness of different individuals as well as a wide variety of life phenomena. More precisely, Hawkins discovered a way of calibrating the levels of the Truth reflected in and by various phenomena. Based on the results of his research, Hawkins developed a Map of Consciousness, in which he outlined various levels of consciousness together with experiences associated with these levels.
