Dr. David Hawkins Calibrated List

579010_539611959388067_514996432_nWhere does one begin the search for spiritual truth self-realization called enlightenment?


Dr. David Hawkins’ List Below has been calibrated above 500, which is unconditional love.

I find this list important, as I do not want to be duped (smile) on my spiritual path by any book or teacher not yet teaching from the conscious level of (500+ which is unconditional non-duality love.) Dr. Hawkins

Hawkins’ Consciousness Scale ranges from 0-1000, (1000 is the Highest Level of pure/consciousness humanly possible.)

“The great avatars that set the ultimate paradigm of reality and standard of conduct for all of humanity for thousands of years. Of those, the Lords Krishna, Buddha, Zoroaster, and Jesus Christ all calibrate at 1,000. All the names for Divinity calibrate as Infinity. The revered great sages and their teachings calibrate in the 700 (extremely rare), such Huang Po and Ramana Maharshi.”


After being a student of Dr.  Hawkins for a while now,  I can share with you that I have forever been changed by his love. Although I’m not yet Enlightened I’m certainly on the path and nothing would take me off it, as I have discovered God’s Love is my LIFE.

According to Hawkins we, as humans, live at vastly different “levels” of consciousness. All these levels, along with the “truth level” of ANY true/false style inquiry, can be tested for truth and numerically “calibrated” through muscle testing, on a logarithmic scale of 1-1000. According to Hawkins, any person, concept, thought or object that calibrates at 200 (The level of Integrity) or above is positive (“power”); anything below 200 is negative (“force”). So far, so good. Hawkins’ “map of the levels of human consciousness” is highly consistent with most spiritual teachings, running the range from Shame (lowest) to Enlightenment (highest). Hawkins’ descriptions of the levels are accurate; his personal growth coverage , positive energy and similar concepts are spiritually sound.

(This is further discussed in

Dr. David Hawkins book, Power vs. Force)

Below is Dr. David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. ‘List’ of calibrated Spiritual Teachers/Teachings/Places/Books and Mantras that are over the conscious level of 500 UNCONDITIONAL LOVE:

[500] –

Love 47913_352650044824686_33639089_n

This level is categorized by love that is very close to being unconditional, unchanging, and permanent. It does not fluctuate nor does it depend on external factors. Love is a state of being. It is a forgiving, nurturing, and a supportive way of relating to the world. It is not intellectual and does not come from the human mind. Love radiates from the heart Chakra. It has the capacity to life others and accomplishes great feats because of its purity of motive. At this level of consciousness, the capacity to discern essence becomes predominant. The core of an issue becomes the center of focus. As reason is bypassed, there arises the capacity for instantaneous recognition of the totality of a problem. Reason only deals with particulars, whereas Love deals with entireties. This ability, often called intuition, is the capacity for instantaneous understanding without resorting to sequential symbol processing. There is a major paradigm shift in those things, which seemed real, which now seem unreal and vice versa. This level opens to door to benevolence, mercy, and Forgiveness through understanding and nonjudgmental. Only 4% of the entire population of the earth attains this level. Because of the dominating power of light over darkness, one individual at this level counterbalances 750,000 people below the 200 levels. This is the level at which spirituality starts, since below this, individuals are still caught up in the linear world. Also the level of a songbird’s song, cat’s purr, and a dog’s wagging tail.

[505] –

The level of valor. Also the level of Dante.

[510] –

The current level of Catholicism. Also the level of the Ganges River, which demonstrates the power of spiritual intention, the power of prayer. It calibrates there despite having sewage from 100 metropolitan areas, all kinds of filth, even bodies.

[520] –

This level interestingly sees much country music, which may be due to the lyrics often speaking about the problems of the heart, emotionally speaking.

[535] –

The energy level of Christmas, which is probably due to the common practice of giving gifts to others and having festive celebrations with good tidings.

[540] –

monks_roller_coaster1294x300Joy – At this level, love truly becomes unconditional. It becomes experienced as inner joy. This is not the sudden feeling of joy because of a turn of events. Rather, it is a constant accompaniment in everything the individual does in every moment of his or her life. Joy comes from each moment of existence. This is also the level of healing and spiritually based self-help groups. What has been known as ‘miracles’ occurs when someone is at this level of consciousness. Only 0.4% of the global population is at this level. This is also the level of truth of Christian practice in the 6th century AD. This is the level at which the third eye opens, physically known as the Pineal Gland. Devotional acts calibrate at 540, because of the power of their intention. Includes folding hands in prayer, kneeling to pray, genuflection, praying at the Wailing Wall, turning a prayer wheel, etc.

[540+] –

From this level upward, it is the domain of saints, advanced spiritual students, and healers. A capacity for enormous patience and the persistence of a positive attitude in the face of prolonged adversity is characteristic of this level. The hallmark of this state is Compassion.

[540] –

The calibration of the music of George Harrison, on an overall basis. Also the level of Socrates.george_harrison-2090-1

[540-600] –

This level of consciousness is reached after a person has a Near Death Experience, which are spiritually transformative and allowed individuals to quickly get to this level. At this level, the world seems illuminated by the beauty and perfection of creation. Everything happens effortlessly, by synchronicity, and the world and everything in it is seen to be an expression of love and divinity. A Presence is felt whose power facilitates phenomena outside conventional expectations of reality, and often termed ‘miraculous’ by the ordinary observer. The spiritual teachers in this level are the ones who have the most contact with significant numbers of people. At this level, joy leads many to become spiritual and inspirational teachers, healers, great artists, or even architects who create the great cathedrals that involve sacred geometry, great inspirational music, and the production of beauty in all its forms. Many major persuasions of Christianity including Roman Catholicism, Anglicanism, Christian Science, and many small denominations such as the Quakers calibrate on this level.

[560] –

Carl Jung was at this level. Sigmund Freud was below the level of 500 because of his denial of man’s spirituality, whereas Jung affirmed the spiritual nature of human beings. jung

[575] –

The level consciousness of ecstasy.


A Course in Miracles (Workbook year of 365 days of lessons.)

According to David Hawkins, ACIM calibrates around 600+, making it very factual, and quite enlightening. Here is what Hawkins says about the Bible:


The Old Testament calibrates at only 190. However, Genesis is at 660, Psalms is 650, Proverbs is 350. If these are excluded then the remaining Old Testament calibrates at only 125. The New Testament calibrates at 640. However if Revelations were removed (calibrates at only 70) then the New Testament would calibrate at 790.

The current bible calibrates at 475 as a whole. To make it authentically “Holy” as the title implies, it would have to exclude all of the books of the Old Testament (except Genesis, Psalms and Proverbs) and Revelations. If that were done, then the bible would be truly “Holy” and calibrate at over 740. Importantly, the Lamsa version of the bible (Translated from Aramaic, Jesus’ language) is more accurate than the King James Version (translated from Greek). It calibrates 20 points higher. If the Lamsa bible excluded the old testament (except Genesis, Psalms, Proverbs) and revelations it would calibrate at 810. If Revelations were removed from the Lamsa version of the New Testament, it would calibrate at a whopping 880.

Society calibrates at 204 I think he said, with great minds on earth calibrating around 499-510 ranges.

So at least according to Hawkins, ACIM is very important and highly relevant work. Hawkins own books calibrate from 850-999.5 ranges them, with 1000 being maximum for humanity – that is what Jesus was when he was walking the earth. Hawkins further says that in his calibration studies, students of ACIM at lesson 75 become “Immune” to negative stimuli. He says that this seems to be the critical point in the studies, but that they must be followed from 1-75 before it all really clicks for people.

[600] –

Peace images-1

– This level is associated with the experience designated by such terms as transcendence, Self-Realization, and Christ consciousness. It is extremely rare. Only 1 in 10,000,000 attain this at any given time. It is quite common that individuals at this level remove themselves from society, as the state of bliss that ensues precludes ordinary activity. Some become spiritual teachers; others work anonymously for the betterment of mankind. A few also become great geniuses in their respective fields and make major contributions to society. These individuals are saintly and may eventually be officially designated as such, although at this level, formal religion is commonly transcended and replaced by pure spirituality, from which religions originated. Bliss intervenes at this level and worldly activities stop, sometimes permanently. This level is also noted for the crossing over from the perceptual world of duality, to the perceptual world of Nonduality. Beyond this level, previous lives are easily remembered as well as the circumstances and significance of each life. One individual at this level counterbalances 10,000,000 below the level of 200. Perception at this level is reported as sometimes occurring in seemingly slow motion, suspended in time and space. Nothing is stationary and all is alive and radiant. Although this world is the same one that is seen by others, it has become continuously fluid, evolving in an exquisitely coordinated evolutionary dance in which significance and source are overwhelming. There is an infinite silence in the mind, which has stopped conceptualizing. Enlightenment is reached at levels 600 and higher. A Tibetan abbot once said that Peace is of the greatest importance in our world today. In the absence of peace, we lose what we have gained. In the presence of peace, all things are possible: love, compassion, and forgiveness. Peace is the source of all things. This is also the level of kinesiology.


The level of the Kabbalah and Aurobindo. It is a set of esoteric teachings meant to explain the relationship between an eternal/mysterious Creator and the mortal/finite universe.

[610] –

The level of

Lao Tzu and his teachings.

[630] –

The calibration of the phrase Om Namaha Shivaya.456_om 1

[640] –

The King James Version of the New Testament.

[650] –

The Book of Psalms.

Also the level of ‘I AM’ awareness and Awareness of the ‘I’ as being or is-ness. Also the level of “Shanti Shanti Shanti”. The Lord’s Prayer also calibrates on this level.

[660] –

The perception of the Self as simply Existence.

[700-1000] –

Self-Realization and Enlightenment – An individual at this level counterbalances the negativity of 70,000,000 individuals below the level of 200. This is also the level of Sages. The Self is seen as God Manifest.

The Declaration of Independence resonates at this level.

The Koran

also resonates at this level, as it was written before the fall of Mohamed after he ‘took up the sword’.

[700s] –

The Aura emanating from individuals calibrating at this level has an attraction and an effect on visitors. They like to be near the presence of these individuals because they feel incredible inner peace. Serenity replaces fear and anxiety in those who are around individuals on this level. A typical statement given by a person on this level would be something like “There is no world to save; reality is just an illusion.” A statement such as this is not understandable to most at lower levels.

[700] –

The level of the phrase Om Mane Padme Hum Om-Mani-Padme-Hum

[705] –

The level of the

Rig Veda

[700+] –

There are 22 sages on this planet who calibrate at this level or higher, according to Dr. Hawkins. Of those, 20 of them are at 800 or more, of whom there are 10 at or over 900, and one sage at 990.

[740] –

The mantra Om, as opposed to Aum, which is a serious alternation and is why it calibrates at the extremely low-level of 65. This is also the level of the New Testament, if the Book of Revelations is included. This is also the level of Mohamed at the time he wrote the Koran, before dropping to 130 after he ‘took up the sword’ at age 38. ‘I’ is seen as a total statement As the Ultimate Reality. images

[750] –

Manifestation calibrates at this level. What appears to be change is the emergence of potentiality out of essence into manifestation. This is also the level of the

Lamsa translation of the New Testament from Aramaic.

[760] –

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi mahatma-gandhi

[780] –

The Heart Sutra and the Lotus Sutra.

[795] –

Bodhidharma as well as the Zen teachings.

[800] –

Teacher of Enlightenment.

[800s] –

There is not much that is known about this level range. However, it is seen that salvation of all of humanity is a main priority and concern.

[810] –

The level of Ramayana

[840] –

The Self is seen as Beyond Existence or Nonexistence.

[850] –

The higher Self as Logos. This is also the level of Hinduism currently. Also the level of Void, Oneness, Nothingness, Reality as Consciousness, and Reality as Awareness.

[855] –

The level of Allness

[890] –

Hinayana Buddhism (lesser vehicle) and Zen Buddhism.

[800s and 900s] –

Salvation of humanity as a whole is of primary concern. Spiritual reality, essences, and understandings are of importance. Form and its details are irrelevant except as a necessary style for communication. Physical discomfort starts to increase quite visibly in these levels of consciousness.

[900] –

Buddhism was this level in the 6th century AD. The teachings of this particular religion have deteriorated less than any other religion.

[910] –

The Bhagavad-Gita bg-12-001-wallpaper_big2

[930] –

the level of the esoteric teachings of

Jesus Christ as of the 2nd century AD, some of which survived in the Gnostic texts.

“After my departure there will arise the ignorant and the crafty, and many things will they ascribe unto Me that I never spake, and many things which I did speak will they withhold, but the day will come when the clouds shall be rolled away, and the Sun of Righteousness shall shine forth with healing in his wings.”

~Jesus, The Essene Gospel of Peace.

[960] –

Mahayana Buddhism (greater vehicle). Also the level of

Huang Po (his book “Dharma of Mind Transmission”

is at the level of the void 850, and was written before Po transcended to 960).

[965] –

The Buddha’s Law of Dependent Origination or Interdependent Co-Creation.

[965] –

Transcending the Levels of Consciousness, by David R. Hawkins

[970] –

The Upanishads

The Upanishads -are Hindu scriptures that constitute the core teachings of Vedanta. The Upanishads have exerted an important influence on the Hindu philosophy and were collectively considered one of the 100 Most Influential Books Ever Written by the British poet Martin Seymour-Smith.

[985] –

This is the level of an Avatar.

[990] –

There is only one living sage at this level, according to Dr. Hawkins.

[999] –

The statement “There is no cause of anything” calibrates at this level.

[1000] –

This is the maximum energy level that can be tolerated by the human body and nervous system. It is the extremely rare level of avatars from ages past. No human has ever existed with a consciousness calibration higher than 1000. The archetypes Christ, Buddha, and Krishna are at this level. This state is also the existence of Buddhahood, Christ Consciousness, At-Oneness with the Source Manifest and Unmanifest.

Beyond the human realm of consciousness possibility:

[1000+] –

Buddhahood, Brahman, Christ, Krishna, The ‘I’ of Ultimate Reality.

Infinity – 309340_467540333292439_1347720927_n

The Source of reality manifest as divinity. The supreme creation Source of consciousness eternal. The Source of all that is.

Interesting Facts

Concerning consciousness calibration, there are some very interesting facts.

* Powerful patterns are associated with health; weak patterns are associated with sickness. Every thought, emotion, word & action has one pattern or the other. Every moment of our day we are either moving towards health or sickness.

* Everything calibrates at certain levels from weak to high including books, food, water, clothes, people, animals, buildings, cars, movies, sports, music etc.

* A good amount of the music today calibrates at levels below 200. Hence it leads to behavior associated with lower energy levels of consciousness.

* Most movies will weaken people who watch them by bringing their energy levels down below the 200 level of consciousness.

* 85% of the human race calibrates below the critical level of 200.

* The power of the few individuals at the top counterbalances the weakness of the masses.

o 1 individual at level 300 counterbalances 90,000 individuals below level 200

o 1 individual at level 400 counterbalances 400,000 individuals below level 200

o 1 individual at level 500 counterbalances 750,000 individuals below level 200

o 1 individual at level 600 counterbalances 10 million individuals below level 200

o 1 individual at level 700 counterbalances 70 million individuals below level 200

o 12 individuals at level 700 equal one Avatar (eg. Buddha, Jesus, Krishna) at level 1,000

* Any meaningful human satisfaction cannot even commence until the level of 250 where some degree of self-confidence begins to emerge.

* When one’s consciousness falls below 200 at any given moment you start to lose power and thus grow weaker and more prone to be manipulated by one’s surroundings.

* Parts of one’s life will calibrate at a higher level of consciousness while other parts will calibrate a lower levels. It’s the overall average that determines one’s consciousness.

94 thoughts on “Dr. David Hawkins Calibrated List

  1. Meher Baba 240? Nostradomas 220? I thought they were among the initial calibrators!

    Don’t worry, be happy.
    Meher Baba loves us all.
    Illusions are many
    But underneath it all
    There is one reality
    That you and I are one-Jai Baba


  2. Prophet Muhammed (Peace and blessings upon him) never “wrote” the Noble Koran before “taking up the sword”. There were many battles fought while the revelation of the Noble Koran was yet incomplete. The prophet starting receiving revelation at the age of 40. The Koran was revealed over 23 years and the prophet passed on at the age of 63. There was no such thing that the Koran was revealed before prophet Muhammed took up the sword.

    I don’t mean bad by this post 😉

    This is a very informative article. Thank you for sharing. Be blessed!

    • The Prophet Muhammed dictated the Koran circa 610 AD, at age 35 (not at 40, as alleged by some historians), his level of consciousness was above 700 at this time. At age 38, his consciousness level fell very dramatically to far below 200, down to 130. He took up not the spiritual sword of truth but the physical sword of militarism. The Koran was revealed to Muhammed and defiled by him as well. He constantly revised the Koran for personal gain throughout his life. (Praise be to Allah!) The prophet Muhammeds’ revisions of the Koran dropped it from (940- 700). Allah offers mercy to all ‘the sons of Abraham’ not just mercy to Islam and those who pray on Arabic. To behead Infidels wherever you see them is contradictory to the message the Koran was intended to portray.


      • Calvin: Would you please cite references as to the Koran being dictated by Mohammad at the age of 35 instead of 40? Most Muslim sources (incl. Wikipedia) say he dictated the Koran during 23 years from age 40 until his death at 63. So how could it be that the Koran then is still calibrating at 700 while Mohammad himself fell below 200?


  3. Some of the listed calibrations you have posted are of major err.
    Dr. Hawkins calibrations:
    Apocrypha- 400
    Zohar- 905
    Lao Tsu- 610 (you have 2 calibrations of Lao Tsu (610:correct, 575:incorrect)
    Torah- 550
    Kabbalah- 605
    Dead Sea Scrolls- 260
    Book of Mormon- 405 (Joseph Smith was at ‘510’)
    I will save the trouble of rewriting all his correct calibrations and refer those who are seeking ‘The Docs’ true calibrations to his books, “Truth vs Falsehood” or “Reality, Spirituality, and Modern Man”. He has various calibrations in all of his writings and re lists calibrations throughout his writings.

    My uncle and I own all of the Docs writings between the two of us and I have read and studied them all thoroughly. I am always reading one of his books, watching or listening to one of his seminars and studying his material. I have also been following his teachings and incorporating his knowledge and advice in daily for numerous years. It is likely for one to get ‘slight’ variations in ‘personal’ calibrations due to a multiplicity of factors but incorrect calibrations varying by the hundreds are ‘false’. The calibrations you have listed as calibrated by Dr. Hawkins are not all listed correctly on your page. Your page also contradicts a few calibrations ( you have listed Lao Tsu as both 610 and 575). The scale of consciousness is exponential and therefore calibrating the Dead Sea Scrolls as ‘650’ when it calibrates at only ‘260’, is a major err.

    • Calvin,

      Thank you so much for your comments. It is a pleasure to meet you, and I can see you are dedicated to the work and teaching of Doc, as am I. Dr. Hawkins himself said that calibrations can differ according to the time of the calibrations, and the exact phrasing of the calibration in question. His lectures, books, interviews and articles contain different calibrations. Doc explains the level of truth of something is different for us at different times. The LOC of the mass consciousness is rapidly increasing and I believe if Doc calibrated it today, it would be much higher than previously calibrated.

      Here are a few of my sources quoted above:

      I think the point here is to use them only as a guide. While reading The Zohar I saw particles of light dancing off of the words; when I saw where it calibrated, it confirmed my feelings. Our inner light is where the truth can be found.

      All the best,


      • Nancy,
        Seeing as the scale of consciousness is arbitrary I agree that it is a map, and as you have most likely heard “the map is not the territory”. I will also note that your above sources are not personal lists calibrated by Dr. David R. Hawkins, M.D. Ph.D. You can easily verify this yourself with the consciousness calibration technique. His lectures, interviews and articles do not vary to the extremity some of the calibrations you lists above. Listing the Dead Sea Scrolls at 650 when they are 260 is very misleading. Whatever reference you used for that calibration is blatantly incorrect and false. Any teaching that calibrates below 600 will not lead one to enlightenment and in the words of the Doc, ” any teaching below 600 even 599 is a misteaching”.
        I believe your intention means well. I also know that some of the calibrations you have in your list match Dr. Hawkins calibrations but many of them are off and some even blatantly false. To put “Muscle tested by Dr.Hawkins” leads one to believe you would have factually obtained them from lists authored by him. Non of your sources are personal lists compiled by Dr. Hawkins. You can verify this by emailing veritas publishing at http://www.veritaspub.com. Your page will go up in calibration once you remove ‘Muscle tested by Dr. Hawkins’. You could also list it as “some of these are calibrations matching those of Dr. Hawkins”.
        Glory to God on the Highest!
        The LOC of mankind is not rapidly increasing and has not shot up since!(perception/Reality)
        Glory to God on the Highest! Praise be to the Divine Incarnation of Jesus the Christ (God incarnate)!


      • Calvin,

        Thank you for your passion and dedication to keeping the teachings of Dr. Hawkins integrous. The calibration I listed for the Dead Sea Scrolls at 650 as well as others was taken from Doc’s June 28, 2003 Sedona Seminar. If you obtain and listen to the tapes, you can hear Dr. Hawkins state these calibrations in his own voice.

        I will modify my posting accordingly.

        Gloria in Excelsis Deo!

  4. I was surprised and disappointed to see the using “Om” instead of the word god was a negative testing….How can this be? With our religions putting so much fear and ego into our world, many have turned away and are using different labels for the divine energy of the collective field of life force energy. Thoughts?


    • Thanks for your comment Kristen. I believe Doc was refering to the “man-made” variation “aum.” Om remains pure and of high vibrations as the sound of the universe. Gloria in excelsis Deo!


      • Thank you, Nancy.
        I’m looking for the calibration level for the emotion of Gratitude, but I don’t see it?


  5. Very cool! I was kind shocked with the assessment of his book though, Transcending the Levels of Consciousness comes in at 965! I guess it just seems extraordinarily high amongst its company (revered great sages and their teachings only calibrate in at 700). Do many older holy books & a book like Hawkins’ have a large gap due to the larger knowing & understanding of consciousness today?


  6. Nancy: Thank you so much for this! Can you tell me the approximate date that he calibrated the number of people on the planet at 700 or more? As I recall it was around 20 according to your article. This is wonderful news!

    Blessings to you,
    Nancy H.


  7. Hi Nancy,

    Thank you for preparing this for us. I would like to understand if someone repeats the mantra ‘OM’ as a routine without thinking about its significance, will it still increase their levels of consciousness?

    Best regards,


  8. Fascinated with these calibrations and certainly can associate with many of the listed calibrations. Curious to know how I can get calibrated (or possibly calibrate myself) and other matters in my life?


  9. I feel there was a error on the calibration of yogananda. He was a self realized master. I believe they listed self realized and enlightened person at 700-1000. He was listed at 540 😦 way off!!!!!)


    • Yogananda and I knew each other from pasts and after his death he contacted me and I found him manipulative so from my experience with him he will give it at least one more go-around and I wish him the best and hope that I meet him again in his new form. His book was a big event for me.


      • Something to consider. The Dali Lama has said you see your own faults in others, Hmmm? Maybe Yoganandaji was mirroring you and what you saw was your own ego.
        Many divine dispellers of darkness accept the lower vibrations of thier chelas to expediate the chelas growth and Yogananda has hundreds of thousands of devotees.
        This might be why his calibration is as it is.
        Yoganandaji also had a difficult time staying in this dimension. He would go into Samadhi for days. His students would chant Om in his ear in order to bring him back to this dimension. Many times the students found it very difficult to bring him back.
        What is a good man but a
        bad man’s teacher. What is a bad man but a good man’s job.


  10. Being a Hare Krishna, it is wonderful to see that Dr Hawkins discovered how powerful Krishna is, being the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Thanks Nancy for sharing this information. We’re in the golden age, where everyone and everything can be harmonious 🙂

    • Tito is definitely below 200. I met him personally before his death. I also met a fella in Canada who claimed he was reincarnation of Tito (??) sure was in the force band, which is below 200.


  12. we are currently making our way with the writings of Dennis H. Stephens, who was also Lao tszu (spelling?). His writing, “The Resolution of the Mind” we calibrated it at 695. It promises to take one to Nirvana (vanishment of the mind) if one follows the processes he wrote out for us. I believe that sections of it calibrate higher than 695 and could go up to 900. You can check it out at http://www.tromhelp.com/. Everything is freely given.

    P.S. yes, sometimes when I read the Bible I noticed that the words would light up for me.


    • Nirvana can only be found when we embark on our journey to find Truth. This path is not easy and it cannot be found in texts or from listening to others speak or try to teach. If we seek knowledge we must understand its meanings and then we must experience its very nature of what we intended on learning. We are beings that are stuck in an endless cycle of existence because we cannot identify with our true spiritual purpose. As we continue experiencing and overcoming those very things that tie us to this existence we begin to realize the oneness and interconnectedness of everything.

      When you incarnated you intended to teach yourself lessons that would open new paths that would unveil new mysteries that can only open your mind and lead you to find more knowledge (“gnosis”). As you spiritually grow, you are able to help others find their paths and you peel away the layers of the ego that limit our ability to reach Christ Consciousness. There are no gurus and no teachers, because everyone’s path is different to each others. They serve only as guides to open your mind to new understandings that can help you embark on your journey to awakening. No one can teach you how to reach Enlightenment until you have detached yourself from the illusion and understood that through being selfless, compassionate and kind, you may find unconditional love.

      We are so much greater than what we seek, and we should only use information as tools to help us move in the right direction. Question everything (including what I’ve written) because Truth can only be found from within.

      “A humble student of my own creation.”


  13. What has worked for me all my life is to ask the right question and the final right question I asked was what is the best path to Nirvana (for me). The answer came in the form of “The Resolution of the Mind, a Games Manual” by Dennis H. Stephens.


  14. I’m a little surprised that Reiki and Hatha Yoga muscle tested as low as they did. I’m wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this. Namaste’ Jodie

  16. Dear Nancy,

    Thank you for this very thorough list of calibrations from Dr. Hawkins.

    I have recently discovered that the International College of Applied Kinesiology, its current and past two presidents, and Dr. John Diamond (who inspired Hawkins), as well as other practitioners, all do not accept Dr. Hawkins’ muscle test for truth.

    According to the International College of Applied Kinesiology, “The use of a manual muscle test is not an acknowledged nor accepted test for `truth’ by the ICAK nor is it Applied Kinesiology.”

    I found this in the book “Secrets of David R. Hawkins: Hawkins Applied Kinesiology” by Arjuna Aletheia, and related information in “Doctor of Truth” and “Power vs. Truth” by Scott Jeffrey.

    I don’t believe the muscle testing works.

    I love your website! You say, “Any path to enlightenment takes us further away, because it’s already here.” I totally agree with you. Keep up the great work!!!

    Thank you.

    Many blessings.


    • Applied kinesiology assumes the response comes from the body. They beloved it was a local response. What Dr. Hawkins discovered is that the response comes from consciousness. Scientists will never accept this. Science by definition is based on the scientific process and that demands the ability to measure consistent results.
      The kinesiology used by Dr. Hawkins and which I firmly believe in can not be used by people under 200 and it therefore, can not be verified by all.
      Like Jesús said, “Blessed are those who believe without seeing or touching.”

  18. Thank you for this amazing summary! I’m working on a thesis for my Masters in Ayurvedic Nutrition. My topic is using nutrients to reduce stress and I was wondering if you have information about which foods have the highest calibrations. I would love to include you, and Dr. Hawkins in my research. Again, thank you and many blessings.


  19. Latest calibration levels:
    • Ayahuasca: 538
    • LSD: 551
    • Magic Mushrooms: 565
    • San Pedro: 580
    • Iboga TA (Total Alkaloid Extract): 580
    • Iboga Root Bark: 455


  20. I don’t think anyone is even at a steady point.

    I bet some people could transcend this all together..

    And I also bet Jesus isn’t quite one of those people.

    And i bet he’s not constant and he could go to all different points. His managing to not be confined by time (as much as others anyways) would put him around .. who knows.

    I think his message would be to not pay much if any attention to these sort of lists decided by people. It’s not a practice that works so why bother.


  21. Hi! Beautiful work. Just wanted to tell you there is a typo in your blog and I’m curious what you meant to say. Right now within the Love paragraph (500) it says “It has the capacity to life others”. What did you mean?


  22. Lao Tzu at 610?? But How??
    You just have to read the Tao Te Ching to understand that he was at an extremely high level. Above the 900 mark in my opininon.


  23. Oneness with God

    We are all in the oneness of God even though we don’t fully understand or know this. We are like drops of water in the ocean and the ocean is God. As our consciousness goes up we become more aware of God. At 600 and above we take on the Christ Consciousness, then we can look in the mirror and say “I and my Father are one”.

    Until then we just can’t fully see this. This is because human consciousness has only evolved so far at this point and hasn’t advanced enough yet to see that oneness fully. So when we talk about our neighbor we are also talking about our self. When we criticize our neighbor we are criticizing God and ourselves. So the adage is to eliminate all judgment, criticism, and condemnation from our life permanently. The quickest way to get to 500 is simply to be kind, caring, considerate, and compassionate with everyone in every case. The oneness underlying all life will slowly seep into your consciousness as you go toward God and higher consciousness. So I invite you to step onto the path to God and higher consciousness today………………Blessings. Robert

  25. I (the tester of below list calibrates 446). I have been tested by someone who calibrates in 500’s. I also calibrated myself (from total detached, curious, non-biased perspective), and got identical of 446 as tested by being in 500s.

    I’m stating this so you first know this isn’t coming from someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.

    I treat all tests with total respect and child-like curiosity. I first ask divine for permission, and get into a relaxed state of mind that allows a very clear channel of truth to flow through me… in order to increase accuracy with muscle testing. Furthermore, I have lot of experience (both intuitive and intellectual) of kinesiology, Chi energy and meridians. So all tests are coming from non-attached, grounded, centered and “simply-being-a-clear-conduit-and-observer” frame of being.

    Furthermore, DO NOT treat any of these as anything but a useful pointer. Something in 600’s shouldn’t be discarded anymore then something in 400’s. It all points to “self”.

    If you’d like a personal “Level of Consciusness” reading, email me at: amazingsuccess2000@yahoo.com.au

    I have (from my observation, not saying this from “proud ego”) seemingly extremely accurate connection to “absolute truth” (truth that is ineffable) though my body of self-muscle testing. And have used truth/false for big life decision including business, finding lost keys, homeopathy, if going to “that” meeting will serve my highest and greatest good, and many other things that one simply wouldn’t know any other way. And by this, I have permission to offer my gift to others by reading things.

    Disclaimer: I don’t care if my results are not in your agreement. I don’t care if results are not in my agreement. This is completely moving myself out of the way, and simply allowing body to tell the truth.

  26. Hello! I am glad that so many people are interested in elevating their consciousness. Among the many teachings and teachers calibrated by all of the people present here, there are two names missing that I would be very much interested in: Osho (for example the book „The Mustard Seed”) and Jiddhu Krishnamurti (let’s say „The First and Last Freedom”). Can you help me with this?


  27. Hi – have been a student of Dr Hawkins for 5 years. Recently came across marshal vian summers and his revelations. Could you retest him and his writings?

    Best regards,
