 Because power is effortless, it goes unseen and unsuspected.  Force is experienced through the senses; power can be recognised only through inner awareness.


Imagine you had access to a simple yes or no answer to any question you wished to ask.   ANY QUESTION, EVER! And you would always get the correct answer.  David Hawkins, MD, PhD, has researched literally thousands and thousands of people, using muscle testing derived from behavioural kinaesiology, to verify this statement.  His research is based in complex scientific fields including advanced behavioural kinaesiology, advanced theoretical physics and mathematics, non-linear-dynamics; chaos theory and its mathematics; neurobiology; turbulence theory; and philosophical considerations of epistemology and ontology.  The results of his research sit poised to change the nature of human reality, if we choose to apply it.


Man [sic] 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.

One of the main premises of his research states “the human mind is like a computer terminal connected to a huge database.  The database is human consciousness itself, of which our own cognizance is merely an individual expression, but with its roots in the common consciousness of all mankind [sic].  This database is the realm of genius; because to be human is to participate in the database, everyone, by virtue of his birth, has access to genius.  The unlimited information contained in the database has now been shown to be readily available to anyone in a few seconds, at any time in any place.  This is indeed an astonishing discovery, bearing the power to change lives, both individually and collectively, to a degree never yet anticipated” (p34-35).

Hawkins research methodology used muscle testing from behavioural kinaesiology to provide 100% accuracy revealing Yes/No, True/False answers and calibration of vibrational levels to thousands of different questions and things.  Everything calibrates at certain levels from weak to strong – books, food, water, people, everything.  The table below reflects common emotions and their vibrational energy level, along with the cultural correlations of that level of consciousness.

Power comes from insight and higher levels consciousness.  Force comes from fear and resistance and lower levels of consciousness.  Our level of consciousness or energy level reflects our world view – power and perception go hand in hand.  Energy levels up to 200 are negative – there is blame and no responsibility or power.  Force is used to achieve results.  Above 200 is the level of power and choice.  At levels of 500 and above only love, non-judgement, kindness and forgiveness exist as a lifestyle, with no exceptions.  Hawkins states that 85% of human race calibrates below critical level of 200, but for the first time in history that is changing.

The power of a few at very high levels counterbalances the weaknesses of the masses

1 person @ 300 = 90,000 at <200

1 person @ 500 = 750,000 at <200

1 person @ 700 = 70 million at <200

When we vibrate at 200 and above we help raise the consciousness of the planet by influencing the M-fields that connect everything. M-fields are morphogenic fields, first described by Rupert Sheldrake.  They are invisible organising patterns that influence thought patterns and images, replicating beliefs and actions across time and space.

All choices reinforce the formation of powerful M-fields influencing others whether we wish to or not.  Every action or decision we make that supports life supports ALL life, including our own.  The ripple effect we create returns to us.   This is why it is vital that we choose magnanimously and consciously what we think and how we act.  Every choice contributes vibrationally to the M-fields and thus the world at large.

The mind makes choices based on processing millions of bits of data.  This processing is far beyond conscious comprehension and time and is based on what Hawkins calls attractors.  Attractor fields are calibrated energy reflecting Levels of Consciousness.  These Attractor Fields serve as organising energies for widespread patterns of behaviour, and define the content, value and meaning we give to things.


Negative Attractor Fields
  • Shame, blame, anxiety, hate
  • Life draining
  • Sickness producing
  • Force  – Below 200

Positive Attractor Fields

  • Affirmation, trust, optimism, love
  • Life enhancing
  • Power
  • Wellness producing – Creative
  • Above 200


There are no causes within the observable world. The observable world is a world of effects.

We can’t pose a question unless the answer already exists.

This book provides a foolproof way to attain accurate information instantly, make decisions quickly and in our best interest and develop our consciousness within a world of possibility and probability.  The more conscious we are the greater our choices become to contribute positively to the awakening of humankind and a more prosperous and positive world.

It is a truly inspiring book which I highly recommend to any person wishing to grow and actualise their fullest potential.

A beautiful gift of writing… You spread joy, love and compassion

 through what you write.  The fruit these three is peace, as you know…”

 Mother Teresa
