The Dr. David R. Hawkins Study Group will be meeting Thursday evenings 7:30 PM at my home in Southampton Bucks County PA to study the teachings of Dr. David R. Hawkins.
Dr. Hawkins (1927-2012) transitioned back to Spirit in September 2012. We'll miss his radiant presence, but he did leave us an enormous legacy of books, DVDs, and CDs that we will use in our study group meetings. David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., is a well-known American psychiatrist, researcher, and spiritual who lived in Sedona, Arizona. He is perhaps best known for his Scale of Consciousness, which he devised through applied kinesiology and which can be used to map the level of consciousness of any person, place or thing - past or present. According to Dr. Hawkins, everyone and everything can be calibrated on a scale from 1 to 1000. Jesus and Buddha calibrate at 1000, while Hitler calibrates at 40. Dr. Hawkins tells us that 75 percent of humanity still calibrates below 200 on the Scale. The average person’s calibration changes no more than five points or so in a lifetime. However, spiritual seekers can experience a jump of hundreds of points in a single lifetime.
Dr. Hawkins explains that the ego works constantly to maintain the illusion of physical “reality” and our fear blocks us from discovering the truth about what we really are. We have always believed that this fear-based illusion we live in is real. For that reason, institutions like the church, government, and mass media have been able to easily manipulate and control us throughout our dark and deceitful history. But Dr. Hawkins assures us that we can survive the human crisis we find ourselves in. We can rediscover our true “Self.” He says that once we let go of our false belief that we are physical bodies, then we can begin to discover the truth. A profound sense of peace and feeling of “coming home” accompanies this discovery.
Long ago during the "fall of man," we forgot what we really are. It’s time to remember. We pop in and out of different levels of consciousness at various times. However, each of us has a predominant state that is “normal” for us. Rising from one level to another can radically change our lives in every way. Because of your interest in all things spiritual -- including Dr. Hawkins’ teachings -- your level of consciousness is rising. As your LOC rises, your own life begins to change in astounding ways, and you start to radiate a healing effect on the rest of the world. More and more people are beginning to awaken spiritually. This portends a global shift in consciousness for humanity as a whole. As Dr. Hawkins says, the single most important thing you can do in this lifetime is work to raise your level of consciousness.
You can get to know Dr. Hawkins' teachings by reading his eight books, watching his DVDs, and, of course, by participating in our Hawkins study group.
