Levels of Consciousness can be measured in several different ways. Here we will discuss how it’s done, and how it works.
Applied Kinesiology, also known as “muscle testing” or “biomechanics”, is a well known and well documented method of diagnosing anything from illness to food intolerances. It was chiropractor, George J. Goodheart, who first invented Applied Kinesiology (AK) back in 1964 when he realized that beneficial stimuli increased the strength of certain indicator muscles, while harmful stimulation caused the same muscles to suddenly weaken. The method has since spread all over the world, and is used by medical doctors, as well as “alternative” practitioners.
Dr. John Diamond took the research to a new level when he started to test the muscle response to both intellectual and emotional stimuli. He tested everything from music to speeches and images, and got consistent universal results indicating that certain intellectual and/or emotional stimuli made the indicator muscle go weak or strong. His findings are described in detail in his classic book The Body Doesn’t Lie.
Dr. David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. (1927 – 2012) was the first to use Applied Kinesiology to measure levels of consciousness. As a high level teacher he saw the potential that muscle testing brought into the realm of spiritual growth and development of consciousness. He used muscle testing to calibrate the first original scale of consciousness, and he published many books and did many lectures on the subjects of consciousness calibration and development. Hawkins also performed hundreds of calibrations on camera where he demonstrated how to calibrate people, books, movies, food items and more according to his scale from 1 to 1000.
How Does Applied Kinesiology aka Muscle Testing Work?
Just like hypnosis can bypass the conscious mind, and get answers and information directly from the the subconscious, so the method of Muscle Testing is a way of bypassing logic/reasoning and get the answers directly from the body’s connection to Source Intelligence. Muscle testing is simply using the body’s innate connectedness to the Source Intelligence to give you a “yes or no” signal about something that your conscious mind does not know.
In practice, it’s most common to perform muscle testing in pairs. The subject being used as an instrument will stand up with his/her arm stretched out to the side. The tester will make an affirmative statement like “Person X calibrates higher than LOC 200” and press the subject’s arm down at the wrist. The subject is instructed beforehand to resist the push, and if the arm goes weak it indicates a “no” response, while a strong arm indicates a “yes” response”.
Other methods of Consciousness Calibration
While muscle testing is a great way to calibrate, the downside is that it takes two people to do it. Fortunately, there are alternative ways that are just as accurate that you can do on your own:
Dowsing can be done by pendulum or dowsing rods, and it works based on the same principle as regular Muscle Testing. By practice and attunement you allow the “yes or no” response to come through via the movement of the pendulum or the crossing or no-crossing of the dowsing rods as indicated by the picture.
Intuition is not as accurate as muscle testing or dowsing, but for high level teachers and people with a lot of experience in calibrating it can be used to roughly estimate a person’s Level of Consciousness.
Accuracy – Can anyone do it?
Muscle testing or dowsing is something anyone can play with, but just like with anything else, it takes practice and experience to truly master it. It makes sense that accuracy increases proportionally with the performer’s own Level of Consciousness. Ideally, you should be at least in the 500’s to be able to get truly accurate results.
That being said, a high Level of Consciousness alone is not quite enough to ensure accurate results. You also need to have the ability to “put yourself aside”, and be totally neutral to the results you get. This allows the signals from the Higher Mind (or Source Intelligence) to work through you without interference.
In addition, your own personal experience and understanding of the Scale of Consciousness will determine what results you get. Having lived through as many of the levels as possible is always a good thing for understanding. Also, having tuned into and calibrated many different people on different levels will help your accuracy.
To calibrate a person’s Level of Consciousness you only need to know enough so that the Higher Mind can pinpoint that exact person in time/space. As long as you have enough info to do that (like a picture, name or email address, for example), you are good to go. Calibrating yourself is also possible, but remaining neutral to the results becomes more challenging the more you have “invested” into the results.
