Level of human consciousness

(From the book of Power vs. Force)

You are reading this article related to an increased current level of your state of consciousness. Hence, you are in the level of courage because people with low vibration and level of consciousness lose their interest in personal growth.
“Hawkins defines this as a logarithmic scale, so there are far fewer people at the higher levels than at the lower ones. An increase from one level to another will result in an enormous change in your life”.



20- Shame
People usually have suicidal thoughts which it’s a step above death. This level is related to self-directed hatred and a significant amount of self-sabotage.



30- Guilt 
This level is right above shame but with less intense suicidal thoughts. People think of themselves as a sinner and have difficulty forgiving themselves.


50- Apathy
Apathy is the level of victimization and hopelessness. Many homeless belong to this level.

75- Grief
Grief is the level of persistent sadness and sorrow. It is also related to the loss or death of a loved one. This depressive state is still considered to be higher than apathy because the person is starting to run away from numbness.


100- Fear
This is the state of survival that weakens the immune system when people perceive the world as an unsafe and dangerous place or even reach a state of paranoia. At this level, people need help to go above this level, or they will be stuck here for a long time, where they might attract an abusive relationship into their reality.



125- Desire
This level should not be confused with a desire to achieve goals. This is the addiction level, where people have a perpetual state of craving and lust. This level is related to all kinds of addiction (work, sports, money, sex, drugs, and alcohol).



150- Anger
Anger is the level of frustration and resentment when the desires and needs are not met at a lower level. This level also can motivate people to be on a higher level to change their state of frustration. You can notice some form of dysfunctional
a relationship where an angry person is coupled with a fearful person.



175- Pride
Pride is the first level of “feeling good,” but it is a false feeling. Because this feeling is dependent on external sources such as jobs and money, people on this level are vulnerable. This is a critical level because when it comes to group consciousness, it
can lead to nationalism, racism, and religious wars. Religious radicalism is fixed on this level where people see their religious beliefs as the one and only right.



200- Courage
Courage is the level where people perceive their lives as challenging and exciting instead of tiring and overwhelming. This is the level of real strength. People on this level are interested in personal growth and development, such as building personal, educational, and working skills. In addition, they start to have a great look at
their future and learn from the past pitfalls.



250- Neutrality 
“live and let live.” represents this level where people are more flexible, relaxed, and unattached. Whatever happens, you go with the flow and have nothing to prove to others. People here tend to feel safe and get along well with other people.
Most entrepreneurs or self-employed people are on this level. However, this level is the comfort zone, where A very comfortable place where people are taking care of your needs, but they don’t push themselves too hard.



310- Willingness
This level is when people feel safe and comfortable, and they can begin to utilize their energy. They are interested in doing their best rather than doing good enough. This level is associated with the development of willpower and self-discipline. People who reach this level are the “troopers” of society; they get things done well and don’t complain much. This is the state of consciousness of responsibility with being organized and self-disciplined.



350- Acceptance
Acceptance is the awakened state of different possibilities of living, where the functional shift occurs. At the previous level, people become competent, and on this current level of acceptance, people are wired to use their abilities to the optimum
level. People here accept fully accept the responsibilities of their roles in the world. At this level, people start recognizing the importance of change. Hence they will change their jobs or diet when they know that the old ones don’t resonate with them anymore.



400- Reason
The reasoning is the level of transcending the low emotional levels and having more mental clarity and rationality. Hawkins refers to this level as the level of medicine and science. When people reach this level, they can utilize their reasoning and cognitive ability to their optimum level. They have their discipline and proactivity beyond their natural abilities. They have reached the point of clear- knowing of their true abilities and know-how to use them. People on this high level make a meaningful contribution to the world. This is the level of Einstein and Freud.



500- Love
This is the level of unconditional love and not the emotion of love. At this level, people reach a deep understanding of the connectedness with All That Is- with all that exists. People get that level when they see the biggest picture of unity consciousness. They make a conscious choice to serve according to an in-depth knowledge of the life mission; at this level of love, people use all their abilities and talents to serve their hearts related to a greater sense of conscience. Living according to the true purpose is the core of this level. Motives at this level are pure and uncontaminated by the ego's desires. This is the level of lifetime service to humanity. Think Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Dr. Albert Schweitzer. At this level, the individual starts to be guided by a force greater than oneself. It’s a feeling of letting go. Connecting with intuition becomes tremendously strong. Hawkins stated that this level is reached only by 1 in 250 people during their entire lifetimes.



540- Joy
According to Eckhart Tolle, joy is a state of pervasive and unwavering happiness. This very high level is a level of saints and progressive spiritual teachers. “Just being around people at this level makes you feel incredible”. At this level, life is fully
guided by synchronicity and intuition. There’s no more need to set goals and make detailed plans — the expansion of your consciousness allows us to operate at a much higher level. A near-death experience can temporarily bump to this level”.



600- Peace
A complete transcendence. Hawkins claims ‘’this level is reached only by one person in 10 million’’.



1000- Enlightenment

Enlightenment is the highest level of human consciousness. It occurs when a person integrates with divinity. This state of consciousness is very rare; however, thinking about this state can elevate your consciousness. Contemplating this model is worthy of reflection. “Not only people but also objects, events, and whole societies can be ranked at these levels. Within your own life, you’ll see that some parts of your life are at different levels than others, but you should be
able to identify your current overall level. You might be at the level of neutrality overall but still, be addicted to smoking (level of desire). The lower levels you find within yourself will serve as a drag that holds the rest of you back. But you’ll also find higher levels in your life”.


Right now, think about the strongest effects in your life. What does affect your level of consciousness?
Look at this hierarchy with an open mind and see if it leads you to new insights that may help you take the next leap in your own life. Look carefully at all levels and observe if it gives you a new perspective that will help
you to your next quantum jump and effective change.



Understanding Your Level of Consciousness: What does it
Mean and How to Raise It?

(the Hawkins Scale consciousness) is not intended to define you and place you in a stagnant state. it is simply a highly precise and useful method to understand state conscious awareness.  Moreover, a higher level of consciousness is not
necessarily ‘better’ than a lower level. Everyone has their own different ways of experiences and life choices where they offer them lessons and lots of learning opportunities based on their current level of consciousness. All people have been at
low levels of consciousness at certain points of life as it is required for accomplishing the higher state of conscious awareness.  The lower levels contain core lessons or hard lessons that people must learn at some point in order to reach a
certain level of the human experience with all its highs, lows, and encounters. All of these experiences provide the basis for high consciousness. Reaching the highest enlightened consciousness required passing by or experiencing the lower
levels such as grief and desire levels.



The Great Barrier 
“Dr. Hawkins points out that the two greatest spiritual growth barriers seem to be at level 200 and 500. Two hundred, the level of courage, represents a profound shift from destructive and harmful behavior to life-promoting and healthy lifestyles; everything below 200 makes one go weak using kinesiology. Currently, approximately 78% of the world’s population is below this significant level. The destructive capacity of this majority drags down all of mankind without the counterbalancing effect of the 22% above 200. Because the scale of consciousness is logarithmic, each incremental point represents a giant leap in power. As such, one person calibrated at 600 counterbalances the negativity of 10 million people below 200”. 

The second great barrier is level 500 —Love. “Love in this context is a way of being in the world—not an emotionality as most of us perceive it. According to Dr. Hawkins, the reason the level of love is so difficult to achieve it because the ego is so rooted in the physical domain as opposed to the spiritual domain, which emerges at 500. The 400s represent the level of reason, guided by the linear, mechanistic world of form (our modern society that includes advancements in medicine, science, government, etc). Interestingly, the top echelon of intellectual genius, including Einstein, Freud, Newton, Aristotle, etc., all calibrated around 499. The 500s represent a very difficult hurdle as only four percent of the world’s population calibrates in the 500s. This level denotes a shift from the linear, provable domain (classic physics or Newtonian physics) to the nonlinear, formless, spiritual realm”.
