What is Truth? How do we go about “finding truth?” Many of us have thrown out claims of what we believe to be true and what we see as false. Claiming “truth” and “falsities” are both powerful claims no matter where they come from. Is there a way or a process in which we can sift through the minutia of the details in order to make more well informed decisions?
It is my belief that if we ponder our life questions – be that through meditation, prayer, or deep contemplation; the answers and evidence of what we seek will be placed in front of our eyes. What I mean by this is not getting it from gossip or what others tell us, but rather a deep “knowing” that comes through a lot of reflection and deep desire to see truth. Truth will find us if we are deeply wanting and desiring it. However, we must first be “calibrated” at the proper level of consciousness or in the right mindset.
In the book, Power vs Force, by Dr. David R. Hawkins, the tactics and means by which we can see through the webs of misdirection and deceit are explained. He describes some real life tests that we can use to see the truth in our lives. We simply have to be in the right state of mind. For example, someone living within the “grief” or “fear” levels of consciousness will always receive statements of confirmation within that level of consciousness they are residing within (like attracts like). But if we are living within levels of “love” and “peace,” we can implement a process by which truth will always find us. As Dr. Hawkins calls out in his book Power vs Force, “Sheep’s clothing need no longer hide the wolf.”
In “Power vs Force, the levels of consciousness are explained. When we move ourselves up the ladder with self-exploration and achieve higher levels, we are more ready and able to see truth. With lower modes of consciousness, we become victims of falsities and corruption
The energy field of consciousness that permeates in us and within the universe, contains all frequencies of thought. Everyone whom has ever walked the earth has put out thoughts into existence. Whether it was in writing or speeches, all of recorded history can detail a level of either higher or lower conscious thought that is married to it.
Entire books and pieces of art have a level of vibration attached to them through the consciousness that generated them. Within Dr. Hawkins’s book, we can see how certain aspects of creativity through time have graded out on the scale of consciousness. The Bible, writings from Shakespeare, Hitler’s Mein Kampf, even his own book, Power vs. Force, is graded. What we begin to see by using this practice is the state of mind though which existed from those whom created it. Were they in levels of lower consciousness or levels of higher consciousness? Were their attempts aimed at driving fear and control or empowerment and enlightenment?
We can begin to learn how to make personal decisions in our lives with the best possible outcomes. We can study pieces of work and not only wonder what their creators where intending, but receive inputs and outputs on truth for what their intentions were. How does it work? How do we begin to weed out all the possibilities and work towards knowable outcomes instead of simply educated guesses about particular events or writing?
The method is referred to as the “muscle test.” Because our bodies respond to energy, the consciousness of our minds has the ability show us through our muscles “positive” and “negative” outcomes. It works like a computer program with inputs being given as a “0” for “yes” or a “1” for “no.” We can generate any statement we want in our minds and test the validity by using this process. However, how we specify the statement to be tested is of paramount importance.
For example, asking whether or a decision is a “good one,” can be misread. What constitutes “good” Good for whom? When and under what amount of time? What the universe believes to be good for us can be highly subjective in that moment of time since time is not necessarily linear and expands beyond just that one exact moment. The specificity of the question matters. Stating, “opportunity XYZ presents the most positive outcome for me in this moment,” would be a much better example of specific and relevant feedback. We do not want to ask questions, but rather give statements to be judged positive “Yes” or negative “No.”
The various methods are described in the book. The most popular being the use of two people and one pushing down on another’s outstretched arm to see if it stays firm “positive” or the muscles give way and the arm falls “negative.” However, there are tests that can be done by yourself. One method is by taking your middle finger and holding it to your thumb to form a circle. Then with the opposing hand taking your index finger and attempting to pull the circle apart. You can tell the positive outcome if the circle easily holds and see a negative outcome if the circle easily breaks. You must apply the same gentle pulling motion each time while reaffirming your statement you want to test in your mind.
Feel free to try this for yourself and formulate your own conclusion. Upon doing this for some time I can say that I have seen it work more than I have not and I have tried to implemented it in my life for “fact checking” or trying to determine higher levels of positive intent. The key is to try and stay objective and use the same process each time. You will easily be able to tell if the circle breaks just ever so subtly or stays firm. That is all it seems to take to show the outcome of positive versus negative consciousness from my own personal experiences.
It is important to understand that for the best accuracy of this process, that the person or people conducting is calibrated over 200 on the above scale. Even at 200, there is said to be a 30% chance of error. Staying impartial to the response is also key so that any self-serving personal interest not affect results. Basically, try and be of clear mind and without any self-serving intent before conducting these tests or results will be flawed. With enough practice however, I believe this method can become an effective process to try and add into our own personal lives.
The answers we get back about life, or anything else, generally are a just the reflection of ourselves and our own awareness levels or current levels of consciousness. When we align within the common good, it means doing what is Right or what is of higher consciousness. That is also how we generate real positive change in the world. We first start with ourselves and ensuring that what we put out into the universe is of high levels of empowerment and consciousness.
Lastly, realize that there is a path we can help ourselves see and walk – a purpose for each of us. Put out the intention for guidance with the right positive, higher consciousness intentions, and then turn over your life to the greater good and watch your life go in the direction necessary.
With this practice in your daily arsenal you can work to:
1. Accept what is only true
2. Work for the common good
3. Match your needs and wants with what is in your control
4. Embrace what life has in store for us and be thankful for the experiences you gain
The book Power vs. Force was certainly a positive impact for me on my own personal journey of Truth Seeking, so I am hoping that sharing this post leads to others having some eye opening personal experiences of their own.
