Does anyone believe that there are Levels of Consciousness?

And that they are measurable from 1 to 1000, and that these are determining factors in our lives and of those around us. The lower you are the more negativity emanates form you, the higher you are the more positivity emanates from you.
Levels of Consciousness:
Shame: (20)
Guilt: (30)
Apathy: (50)
Grief: (75)
Fear: (100)
Desire: (125)
Anger (150)
Pride: (175)
Courage: (200)
—this is a critical level of transition—
At the 200 level, power first appears. Courage is the zone of exploration,accomplishment, fortitude, and determination. At the lower levels the world is seen as hopeless, sad, frightening, or frustrating, but at the level of Courage, life is seen to be exciting, challenging, and stimulating.
At this critical level of Courage is where you start to gives as much positivity into the world to counterbalance any negativity you give out.
Neutrality: (250)
Willingness: (310)
Acceptance: (350)
Reason: (400)
—this is higher level of distinction, but often times can be a block to the higher levels above it—
This is the level of Nobel Prize winners, great statesmen, and Supreme Court justices, as well as others of high mental capacity that affect society in a positive way. Reason does not of itself provide a guide to truth. Reason itself, paradoxically, is the major block to reaching higher levels of consciousness. Transcending this level is relatively uncommon in our society.
Love: (500)
—this is another critical level of transition—
Love as depicted in the mass media is not what this level is about. It is Love that is unconditional, unchanging, and permanent. It doesn’t fluctuate — its source isn’t dependent on external factors. Loving is a state of being. This is the level of true happiness. Only 0.4% of the world’s population ever reaches this level of evolution of
Joy: (540)
Peace: (600)
Enlightenment: (700 — 1,000)
This is the level of the Great Ones of history who originated the spiritual patterns that countless people have followed throughout the ages. This is the M-level of powerful inspiration; these beings set in place attractor energy fields that influence all of mankind. At this level there is no longer the experience of an individual personal self separate from others; rather, there is an identification of Self with Consciousness and Divinity.
As it stands most of the world, about 80% resonates at the negative levels of below 200. But fortunately those of higher consciousness can counter balance the many of lower consciousness.
Also these are NOT levels of emotion. The predominant emotion are the result of the level the person is at, which reflects their actions and how they see the world. And that their overall behavior is determined by their level of consciousness.
‘Power vs Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior’ by Dr. David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D, Knighted by the order of Malta of St John the Hospitaliers. Whose book was praised by the likes of Mother Teresa, and Lee Iacoca, among others.
Who for years ran one of the most successful psychological clinics in NY, with over 1000 patients at a time, with a very good success rate.

Yes a person can emanate wisdom or warmth at any given point. But there is an overall level that determines intent and actions as a whole. Extreme example: take a serial killer the may exhibit warmth or affection at times, but there is an underlying level of consciousness that is very sadistic and makes them want to kill some. On the opposite end someone who opperates at a high level of consciousness may dip and do something stupid every once in a while but their overall intent and actions are geared to benefit humanity.
Doc Prof Emma K,
You are born with at a certain level which can fluctuate based on what you are exposed to. And yes you have to work with yourself to reach certain levels, but most people don’t know, or don’t bother to do this. The main transformation comes from working with yourself.
Phoenix Quill,
I kinda agree with you. However your concept of unconditional love seems to be the concept of unconditional love that is the hippie type new age, pacifistic stuff it is mistaken to be. With real unconditional love comes wisdom.

I’m not here to convince you. If you don’t believe it then you don’t. Besides its not as simplistic as you think it all has to do with underlying attractor patterns which is to complex to explain here.
Besides Dr. Hawkins is a renowned psychiatrist whose work on consciousness is renowned by very successful and influencial people. I have to take their points of view over yours any day.


  1. I do, certainly…. but, not at all in the way that you describe.
    I would say that everything is conscious to an extent. Rocks, bacteria, humans, etc. Humans tend to be much more conscious than all other species and things that we know of, but nevertheless human “consciousness” is the same–just more complex.

  2. Well, there’s the Glasgow Coma Scale, and there’s the likes of wakefulness, hypnosis, samadhi, paradoxical sleep, Ganzfeld and dreamless sleep, but the idea of ascribing actual numbers to states of consciousness strikes me as inappropriate and bizarre. How would you measure them? With an E-meter?
    Where are you getting this from? It sounds insane. I don’t know your source, but i would seriously suggest you ignore it. You’re trying to quantify the unquantifiable.

  3. I really don’t think it’s as black and white as all that. You could define pride, love, and courage a number of different ways, and you would probably get a different definition depending on who you ask. No matter what the conscious is doing there is always plenty of grey area. It might be focused on one definite aspect of something, but there’s always something else that’s working simultaneously against that will lead to the next inclination at a later time.

  4. Uh… well, I was *going* to come in and say, yes, I *know* there are different levels (or perhaps I should say states or natures) of consciousness, because I’ve personally experienced more of them than most people ever will.
    Then I read your question.

  5. That is really interesting actually and yeah I do believe there are different levels of conciousness. Do you go through these levels as you grow old…? and would you probably need to work with yourself to reach a certain level?
    shouldnt this question be in phychology rather than religion?
    very interesting though

  6. Anyone who simplifies people into level of conciousness & presumes to limit any one individual’s potential & “goodness emanating” is operating at a very low level of conciousness (joke intended).
    This just sounds like caste system. Which Hinduism in it’s many forms can have great wisdoms, but this wasn’t a great thing in it.
    At any given moment the same person can range from emanating great wisdom & warmth on one topic & to being a complete creep on another (Ghandi being an example). So I wouldn’t even say these are stages a person can evolve through.
    Maybe instead assign actions or beliefs, or ways of being to that scale & say people can act within different ranges of it at any given moment.
    I absolutely disagree with you. A serial killer is acting out of what’s been done to them, not some inherent element of themselves. On good actions, a good person can think they are good but be acting out of their own view & be quite mistaken in how they treat others. (Checking histories of harmful people, none had decent meaningless childhoods (quite horrible ones), or they have a disallusing health issue.)
    This scale is too simplistic, missing major elements of humanness & the world. And it still is has at it’s core, a classic sense of elitism inherent to a person, which by it’s very existence in a process eliminates the “greatness, morality” of the idea (by removing all humans as to be viewed as equal).
    Why post an idea when you are looking for agreement only? Why not tell others – thanks for the interesting inputs – whether or not you agree with them?
    Furthermore bringing this back to religion, in Judaism a person who is not exposed & doesn’t know much but reaches past themselves to lift up, is holier than the person who had it easy. So a serial killer to puts off the urges or turns themselves in, is taking a bigger step than the good person who gives to charity. (I can’t think of the specific Talmudic quote that would reflect this, but it exists.)

  7. Yes,
    I believe there is a point of enlightenment where you realize all emotions evolved to serve our biological well being
    and a lower state where you buy into all kinds of psychobabble bullshit regarding ‘negative emotions’ and ‘cleansing auras’ and the notion that unconditional love could ever be a good idea.
    Some even descend to the point of voting for Socialists based on charisma.
    The difference between Ignorance & Enlightenment is that Ignorance has a cure.
