Think of yourself as an “energy-processing system.” While this might sound technical, each of us is in fact processing everything—from the air we breathe to the food we eat, the thoughts we think, the sounds we hear, the words we speak, the images we see, and the emotions we feel—which all create energy within our body.
According to Dr. David Hawkins, the brilliant author of Power vs. Force, by using the science of kinesiology, scientists are able to determine the speed that at which each level of consciousness vibrates. That is, when we have thoughts that are happy and positive, our energetic frequency vibrates very quickly (we are light, bright and powerful), while when we have negative thoughts, our energy essentially downshifts. Emotions of love and joy are vibrant, while shame and guilt are dark and heavy. When we speak words that are kind and thoughtful, we raise our resonance by leaps and bounds, while hurtful and cruel ones lower our energy to a dark place. We can literally become exhausted by our own thoughts and words.
Energetic frequency is never static—we’re always in a state of flux, depending upon our mood, our surroundings, the foods we eat, how we move our bodies, and probably the most important factor, the thoughts we think. It’s important to know that energy can never be lost, only transferred.
“We’re all born with a 1,000 watt bulb inside of us, so to speak, that brilliantly shines through every pore in our body. When we love and treat ourselves and all others with respect, dignity, compassion, and kindness, our light radiantly shines for the whole world to see. But when we stop loving, we stop shining—we barely give off any light at all. And remember, we attract people who shine with the same ‘wattage’ as we do! So if you want to have great people in your life, be a great person!”
Those who live with this awe-inspiring resonance of a daily basis have engaged in the deliberate choice of aligning their energy to the highest levels of universal frequency—Source Energy, God, or whatever you call it. As Gary Zukav says in his incredible book The Seat of the Soul, “When you shift the level of your consciousness, you shift the frequency of your light.” In other words, the more consciously awake you are, the brighter you shine and the more radiant you look and feel.
For many years, the word consciousness was used only in the physical realm, as nothing more than the function of the brain, such as “He hit his head and lost consciousness.” But these days we know that it’s actually something profoundly deeper: When an idea suddenly makes perfect sense, we say, “It was like a light came on,” which perfectly defines the word enlightenment.
Awareness, or consciousness, is like an awakening where you are suddenly acutely aware that you already have all the answers within you (for example, that you were created in the likeness of perfection), so you intuitively embrace your reflection with contentedness and ease. This is when fear and attachment are suddenly rendered obsolete and when everyone, and everything, in the world becomes exquisitely beautiful. It’s when time stands still.
However, shifting our internal resonance to the highest levels is not a mind-made choice; instead, these shifts happen by stilling the racing mind and allowing the beauty of your soul to light the way. Sustaining the shift is the secret to maintaining the centered, seemingly miraculous, breathtaking beauty.
Jesus Christ, the Buddha and several realized beings lived with the highest levels of human consciousness, transcending beauty into an effortless and enlightened state. This is the spiritual quest for all of us.
