Machu Picchu— Secrets of this Sacred Land

The most interesting fact about the Quechua people, the working class of the Inca empire, is that they never allowed negative thoughts to enter their minds. Because the Incas and Quechua people do not remember bad things...we have to guess what happened to the abandoned city on the mountain top of Machu Picchu. It is believed that Small Pox, not the Spaniards, decimated the village. 

The Spaniards conquered the rest of Peru, pilfering gold off their temples and digging up their village homes— to steal the gold buried under them. The Gold was planted under their homes by the Quechua people as a gift for "Mother Earth." 

The Quechua were great farmers and still today live happy peaceful lives—despite their history. Machu Picchu has remained Sacred and is worth a trip to visit this beautiful location nestled in the Mountains with the winding Urubamba River running like a snake below. It is truly breath-taking to stand on the highest peak "Wayna Picchu" and touch the rock perched out over the edge, which was once the "TEMPLE OF THE MOON."  
Behind Machu Picchu is Wayna Picchu. I had not heard of this mountain before arriving. It's about 60 dollars US per person for a 1-day pass to visit both sites, 50 dollars to visit just Machu Picchu.
We stayed in Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley at El Albergue Ollantytmbo Bed and Breakfast for three days before taking the Muchu Picchu train to the town of Aguas Calientes. The Machu Picchu Train ride was 40 scenic minutes, with coffee and snacks. We arrived at the train station in the mountain town of Aguas Calientes, what the locals call, Machu Picchu Village. Here we purchased our tickets, which are limited, for Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu. They have bank machines to change your money, which must be in Soles for the park tickets.  Wayna Picchu, (Quechua: "Young Peak") is also known as Huayna Picchu and is 1,600 feet above Machu Picchu. 
David and I spent two days at the sacred site of Machu Picchu. The first day we walked around Machu Picchu and the second day we had tickets to climb Wayna Picchu. This is an hour walk up to the top and an hour down, its like walking the steps of Mordor in Lord of the Rings—very auspicious and magical.
Huayna PicchuWayna Picchu
We stayed on the top of the mountain within the mountains of the sacred site of Machu Picchu, at the Sanctuary Lodge. It was our honeymoon night, which is why we spent the most we have ever spent in our life for one night. We had an hour massage and a view of Machu Picchu from our balcony window. The Sanctuary Lodge is right next to the entrance of Machu Picchu and after breakfast you can enter the park at 6 am— first to see the sunrise over the sacred site. 
When touring Machu Picchu, I would suggest staying in the town 30 minutes below the mountain—in the city of Aguas Calientes. In the morning you can take a bus 30 minutes up the mountain to the park. I saw an elegant hotel at the base of Machu Picchu Village right on the Urubamba River river, next to the bus stop. The name is the Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel it is a much better deal than the Sanctuary Lodge, however it is still expensive $275 per night. There are many inexpensive hostels in town as well so there are options to fit any travel budget. You can buy a bus ticket to the site, at 7:30 am and get there around 8:00 am.  Buses leave the village of Machu Picchu every 20 minutes and they provide a breath-taking 30 minutes of winding jungle views as you climb up the steep mountain to where Machu Picchu rests. You can also walk the Inca Trail for three days if you have more time than we did.
Machu Picchu stands untouched today and is now protected by the park service. You will need your pass port to enter Machu Picchu and you sign a guest book to enter and leave Wayna Picchu. The site is estimated to be 600 years old and built entirely by hand with no mortar.  Peru has had many earthquakes, which have flatten many cities, but not Machu Picchu. The hand carved blocks that were used to build the city are said to "dance" that is they bounce through the tremors and then fall back into place. From the looks of this place it must have taken thousands of people to build it and they only lived here for estimated 20 years, before abandoning it. 


In the sacred site of Machu Picchu they grew corn and other fruits and vegetables in terraces that look like giant steps. Their gardens must have been over flowing with vegatation based on the many ellabrate terraces spread all over the mountaintop and the moist mountain air that is always kissing the land. Corn is believed to be their main crop. They even made a purple corn drink, "Pisco sour" and amazing Tamales, which we really enjoyed!  I loved it here! The most precious moment was at 6 am the second morning when we entered the park on the day we were scheduled to climb Wayna Picchu.  It was sunrise as we walked into the scared site—having stayed on the peak over night at the Sanctuary Lodge. Birds sung to us. It was as if their tiny voices echoed among the large mountains, so perfect you felt as though Heaven were on Earth!
When you visit Machu Picchu— I recommend staying at the best hotel in the Sacred Valley, El Albergue Hotel— Ollantytmbo Bed and Breakfast. Natalie, who works the front desk after 2 PM EST can organize any activity you would like to try; riding horses, tours and purchasing tickets for Machu Picchu. I recommend using a guide to tour the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Natalie's husband, Paul, is a very knowledgeable guide. Paul's English is great and he is spiritually warm and grew up in the Sacred Valley! Paul can guide you up the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu,  take you to the Wisdom Temple in the Sacred Valley, to the famous Pisco Market in the Sacred Valley, on a dancing horse "Peruvian Paso" and even on a rafting trip down the Urubamba River!

Akashic Records of Machu Picchu, explain the disappearance of the natives in Machu Picchu as "mental advancement". They left earth after completing the lessons on creating "reality, which is said to be the final Earth's lesson, to become gods who create, and take responsibility for the whole. Some left for other dimensions and some went into the earth. "Interesting, I thought, and upon further investigating I was lead  to The World Sound Healing Conference in San Francisco to hear a lecture on The Quantum Harmonic Oscillator. The room went dark and three pyramids projected on a large screen.


"You can hear the sound of "nature" between the Pyramids of Giza," Dr. Susan Yale said, pausing, "it's a perfect F Sharp." No one moved. She spoke slowly, "If you knew there was a place in the world where you could hear God, would you go?" I always wanted to swim in the Nile. From my memoir, "From Hollywood to God" on Amazon and Kindle books.

Monk for Hire

Meet My Friend, Monk Jamyang Tempa
I met this beautiful young monk above holding the snowball a few months ago on Facebook. Yes, the world is changing. His name is Jamyang Tempa. 

I learned about such monks in Bhutan, while hiking through the Himalayas. Monks spend one year alone in isolation to master their minds. I went in and out of these caves and temples throughout Bhutan searching for God. One such cave was the Tanksang Monastery in Paro, Bhutan, known as the  Tiger's Nest. The Majestic Tiger's Nest sat on the edge of a cliff, hanging from the precipice. I'm a big fan of the Dharma discipline. My aim is to learn to control my own mind-- I hope without being alone in a cave for a year.  :)
I asked Monk Jamyang to pray for my son, Mike, as a favor for me. My son is transitioning into a new career and being his mother, I did what only a mother would do-- I hired a monk to pray for him. :) 

Jamyang prays for my son every day, and now my son's life looks even brighter!

Jamyang is holding my son in his etheric brain field, according to Dr. David R. Hawkins, MD. PhD, these higher fields of consciousness "unconditional love" have a great influence on healing.
My memoir, From Hollywood to God, is coming to Amazon in November 2012.  My book will touch on what the Mysterious of the Ages meant by "Self-Realized." I left my career, sold my home and went around the world to sit in holy sites-- said to raise our level of consciousness. At the end of my eight year sabbatical I finally had my first glimpse of what the monks and Jesus were really talking about--Nirvana.

While finishing my book I asked Jamyang to send me his life story. He did and it's beautiful, powerful and loving. But, before I share it with you-- I wanted to tell you about the Synchronicity that occurred while I was communicating with Jamyang.

Monks take a vow of poverty and give up all desires. But they live off donations. I asked if I could make a donation of 100 dollar to Jamyang and his Monastery. I went to Public's grocery store, where they have a money wire service. I wired the money to India in Jamyang's name. While at Publics I text Jamyang telling him he could pick up the money. My lucky number in life has always been the number four. I looked at my text message to confirm it was sent and noticed the time 4:44!  This was an omen for me, that this was a good idea. :)
Below are my prayer certificates sent to me from Jamyang.
 

They are called: Offering Incharge: Dzongsar Institute. Jamyang Tempa mailed them to me in Jacksonville, Florida from his temple in Mandi, India. The prayer certificates were a beautiful touch. 
I love them! From:  Dzongsar Khyentse Chokyilodro Institute. (For Advance Studies of Buddhist Philosophy & Research)  in Mandi H.P. India. 

Hi my dear friend Kelly! (sic)                                                                      
First of all, I would like to say so many thanks for your kind heartiness. 
Today, I am telling you my poor story as much as I can express through my broken English language. 
I was born in a very small village east of Tibet. But I do not know the exact time or date of my birth, because it was not the tradition to be born in a hospital. When a baby was born the parents never thought  the date of  birth was necessary. Our colony is situated on a hillside not far from the city.
We villagers rarely went into the city, because there was nothing for us to do there. Our village had a very poor school lacking in the resources, bbecause we were under the Chinese government's very strict rule. No one could dare to break the unacceptably low standards. But fortunately our  people had very kind minds and good manners towards each other. 

In my family, when I was kid my dear father left us and went to with my mother's younger sister. He never returned to us. After he was gone, our family struggled, there was my dear mother and brother and I. During that time my brother and I were very young so, my mother had to look after us even though she was suffering from the divorce and was busy working things out for our survival. She worked hard to feed my brother and I. Then one day my dear brother left my mom and me. He left with his girlfriend to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. My mom and I were left in my poor home. Every night, we recited the TARA Puja and accumulated Mantra for meeting again my brother. 

After almost five year, we met my brother again in Lhasa, after not having had any contact with him we finally saw him. In Lhasa, I did not get chance to study even though I was eligible, because my family could not spend  money on my school fee. They did not even have enough money for clothes or food, because they did not have a good job. 

One day, they heard an idea from my brother's old friend. The Idea was to send me to India, because at that time we Tibetan people had heard that India was just like heaven in reality. We had heard that everything was free and nothing had a cost so, I accepted their request.

Anyway eventually I crossed over the Himalaya Mountain with a group. In our group, there were 27 travelers including me at first day of journey. But two days later, three people could not walk continuously, that’s when they had to go back.  I was third smallest one in our group. We were not allowed to journey in daytime because every place was filled with Chinese Armies. But we managed to walk from 10 to 4 in very deep darkness in nighttime. Oh yeah there was strict discipline too to us .The rule was nobody could light a torch to see by, even though it was complicated to find the road clearly. At nightfall we had to creep because our path was along a steep hillside edge on a sharp cliff.   During the journey my right foot slipped inside an ice cracked; fortunately my left foot was still outside. In fact, it’s easy to die when it happens. Many Tibetan used to fall and die this way. It took almost one month to arrive in Kathmandu in Nepal. While on our way to Nepal, my stomach was not full, not even for one moment.  I used to cry every night because I missed my mom and brother. I was forced to keep moving, continuously, even falling asleep as I walked, while starving. There were nights I had to go and found myself sleep walking. Luckily we reached Nepal after long difficult journey. Two of the travelers in our group had froze bit from the snow. They had to cut part of their feet off, because of it was useless. 

When we got at Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, our guide disappeared from our eyes. Actually he is not allowed to take us from Tibet to Nepal so, if Nepalese police could catch him then he could be sentenced for lifetime.  I think therefore he ran away. At around 2 p .m. we were arrested by Nepalese police and they took all our belongings and put us in jail for one night without even a little meal. 

Next day, a Tibetan exile government's receptionist came and took us to their office. They took photos of each of us one by one with interview. After two days later, we were sent to India by a bus. At Delhi, in India there is an office of exile Tibetan government. They arranged and guided us on where they wanted us to go. But at that time the only idea I had in my mind was to join in a monastery because my dear mom and brother had advised me of this before I left Tibet. Likewise I did. The monastery is located at Dehra dun, Uttarkhand. In the monastery there were about three hundred monks. They came from different places such as Ladak and Spiti and Nepal and Tibet and Mustang and so forth. During the life in that monastery, I had lots and lots suffering from many separate direction and problems. At one point I was beaten by other older monks and at times not enough money to buy food, I had a  hungry ghost stomach and had home sickness. I remember the hot weather.   

I lost contact with my family for 13 years since I left to our land. I never heard if  they were alive or dead. Because that time there were no phones, or computers. It was very rare people for these in my village. Anyway in that monastery, I started to learn how to read and write. I made a mandala and a white couch and so forth. 

Five years later, I admitted to Dzongsar Institute and studied Buddhist philosophy and graduated and received first position of Acharya Degree. After graduation I was sent by our Institute management community to Upper mustang to teach Tibetan grammar and Buddhist philosophy so that I stayed in Upper mustang for half year and in Pokhra for all most one year.  

Some years ago, I began learning English language and teaching Buddhist teaching here in same Institute, Himachal in India. Last year, I got permission from Chinese Embassy at Delhi so; I went to Tibet to see again my families faces after almost 18 years later. 
The End my poor story.

Conclusion:
Here is the letter Jamyang Tempa sent me from India, with the prayer certificates for my son.
I am sharing this story with you for many reasons. I believe in prayer, and I believe we are here on earth for one another. I am here for Jamyang, and he is here for me. We are here to help each other.
Something Magical Happens when we pray or send thoughts out to each other. It is not that we are separate from God but rather we are within the arms of God, as the essence. But our brains create an illusion of a separate self.  We are human, fragile and needing love; this is why I wrote this blog. If you need prayers contact Jamyang. Remember to donate for his time--they live off us needing them, and we do need them. 

In Dr. David R. Hawkins book, Power vs. Force, he scientifically substantiates that the most Enlightenedthis small 15 percent of the world's population, counter balances the negativity of the remaining 85 percent of the world's people. 

Thank you Master Monk Jamyang!

Dr. David R. Hawkins Passed Away, September 19, 2012


Dr. David Hawkins, MD, PhD encompasses particle physics, nonlinear dynamics, chaos theory, and his own discoveries about the nature and accessibility of truth.

I worked in the Feature Film Industry for 12 years as a Visual Effects Artist on the greatest blockbusters of our time. Thanks to George Lucas! After finishing the last shot on the film Van Helsing, I went to a lecture given by Dr. David R. Hawkins on his book, Truth vs Falsehood. The Doc said, by just standing in Holy sites they could raise your level of consciousness. His magnetic charm and intoxicating laughter made me want whatever he had. I sold everything I owned, bought a backpack, and set out to stand in Holy sites around the world. My memoir From Hollywood to God is on Amazon books and Kindle.  (See photos below)

This blog is from Dr. Hawkins lecture on his Map of Consciousness
Understanding the Levels of Consciousness
Dr. David R. Hawkins developed a map of levels of human consciousness (also called the Scale of Consciousness) that uses a muscle-testing technique called Applied Kinesiology (AK) to document the nonlinear, spiritual realm. (The body does not lie.) The research was scientifically-validated and published in Dr. Hawkins’ doctorate dissertation titled Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis and Calibrations of the Level of Human Consciousness.  His book, Power vs. Force: The Anatomy of Consciousness (Veritas Publishing, 1995) explained how world leaders throughout history have "Lead" based on what level they were at on the Map of Consciousness. Lower levels like fear, lead the world into chaos.

Briefly, each level of consciousness (LOC) coincides with determinable human behaviors and perceptions about life. Each level represents a corresponding attractor field of varying strength that exists beyond our three-dimensional reality. There’s a critical point within each LOC from which its field gravitates (or entrains). The numbers on the scale represent logarithmic calibrations (measurable vibratory frequencies on a scale which increases to the tenth power) of the levels of human consciousness and its corresponding level of reality. The numbers themselves are arbitrary; the significance lies in the relationship of one number (or level) to another (e.g., Dr. Hawkins’ scale is from 1 to 1000).
The Great Barrier
Dr. Hawkins points out that the two greatest spiritual growth barriers seem to be at level 200 and 500. Two hundred, the level of courage, represents a profound shift from destructive and harmful behavior to life-promoting and integrous lifestyles; everything below 200 makes one go weak using kinesiology. Currently, approximately 78% of the world’s population is below this significant level. The destructive capacity of this majority drags down all of mankind without the counterbalancing effect of the 22% above 200. Because the scale of consciousness is logarithmic, each incremental point represents a giant leap in power. As such, one person calibrated at 600 counterbalances the negativity of 10 million people below 200.

The second great barrier is level 500—Love. Love in this context is a way of being in the world—not an emotionality as most of us perceive it. According to Dr. Hawkins, the reason the level of love is so difficult to achieve is because our ego is so rooted in the physical domain as opposed to the spiritual domain, which emerges at 500. The 400s represent the level of reason, guided by the linear, mechanistic world of form (our modern society that includes advancements in medicine, science, government, etc). Interestingly, the top echelon of intellectual genius, including Einstein, Freud, Newton, Aristotle, etc., all calibrated around 499. The 500s represent a very difficult hurdle as only four percent of the world’s population calibrates in the 500s. This level denotes a shift from the linear, provable domain (classic physics or Newtonian physics) to the nonlinear, formless, spiritual realm.

A person’s LOC remains rather steady through the lifetime. Emotions come and go like the passing wind, but a person’s calibratable LOC is governed by specific energy fields in the nonlinear domain which generally doesn’t waver. Over the course of a lifetime, the average person’s LOC will change approximately five points (this is not a statistical derivation, but an average discovered through Dr. Hawkins’ kinesiologic research). However, it is possible for an individual (such as a spiritual aspirant) to have their LOC jump (or drop) hundreds of points in a single lifetime. -ref: Power Vs. Force, by Dr. David Hawkins, scribed by Scott Jeffery

I was lucky to attend three of Dr. Hawkins lectures. During the one on his book, "Transcending the Levels of Consciousness" he explained that we are as happy as we allow ourselves to be. His Joy for life radiated into his audience. There is something about the beauty of 'truth' that is recognizable. My path is has been set in a large part by Hawkins books, and my own desire to fulfill my human potential. Hawkins stated that once given a glimpse of the state of Enlightenment, nothing on earth will ever quench your thirst again!

The following information is designed as a quick reference tool for Dr. Hawkins’ students who are familiar with the Map of Consciousness. To fully understand this Map of the Scale of Consciousness within the proper context, it’s important to read Dr. Hawkins’ book, Power vs. Force.

Enlightenment 700-1000

Peace 600

Joy 540

Love 500

Reason 400

Acceptance 350

Pride 175

Anger 150

Desire 125

Fear 100

Grief 75

Apathy 50

Guilt 30

(c) 1995 David R. Hawkins

These levels determine the reason why people behave the way they do.
These levels can be divided into positive energy-giving levels and negative energy-taking levels. The negative levels from the lowest to the highest are: shame, guilt, apathy, grief, fear, desire, anger, pride. The positive levels are: courage, neutrality, willingness, acceptance, reason, love, joy, peace, enlightenment.
He claims that, although there may be times when we function at different levels of consciousness, we in general operate at one particular level. This can be considered our core level. It is here where I would like to explain these different levels and hopefully inspire you to move beyond your current state.

Shame
According to Hawkins, this is one step above death. At this level, the primary emotion one feels is humiliation. It’s not surprising that this level, being so close to death, is where most thoughts of suicide are found. Those who suffer from sexual abuse are often found here, and without therapy they tend to remain here.

Guilt
Not too far from shame is the level of guilt. When one is stuck in this level, feelings of worthlessness and an inability to forgive oneself are common.

Apathy
The level of hopelessness and despair; this is the common consciousness found among those who are homeless or living in poverty. At this level, one has abdicated themselves to their current situation and feels numb to life around them.

Grief
Many of us have felt this at times of tragedy in our lives. However, having this as your primary level of consciousness, you live a life of constant regret and remorse. This is the level where you feel all your opportunities have passed you by. You ultimately feel you are a failure.

Fear
People living under dictatorship rule or those involved in an abusive relationship find themselves at this level. There is a sense of paranoia here, where you think everyone is out to get you. Suspicion and defensiveness are common.

Desire
Desire is a major motivator for much of our society. Although desire can be an impetus for change, the downside is that it leads to enslavement to ones appetites. This is the level of addiction to such things as sex, money, prestige, or power.

Anger
As one moves out of Apathy to Grief and then out of Fear, they begin to want. Desire which is not fulfilled leads to frustration which brings us to Anger. This anger can cause us to move out of this level or keep us here.

Pride
According to Hawkins, since the majority of people are below this point, this is the level that most people aspire to. It makes up a good deal of Hollywood. In comparison to Shame and Guilt, one begins to feel positive here. However, it’s a false positive. It’s dependent upon external conditions such as wealth, position or power. It is also the source of racism, nationalism, and religious fanaticism.

Courage
This is the level of empowerment. It is the first level where you are not taking life energy from those around you. Courage is where you see that you don’t need to be tossed to and fro by your external conditions. This empowerment leads you to the realization that you are a steward unto yourself, and that you alone are in charge of your own growth and success. This is what makes you inherently human: the realization that there is a gap between stimulus and response and that you have the potential to choose how to respond.

Neutrality
Neutrality is the level of flexibility. To be neutral, you are, for the most part, unattached to outcomes. At this level, you are satisfied with your current life situation and tend not to have a lot of motivation towards self improvement or excellence in your career. You realize the possibilities but don’t make the sacrifices required to reach a higher level.

Willingness
Those people around you that are perpetual optimists - this is their level of consciousness. Seeing life as one big possibility is the cornerstone of those operating here. No longer are you satisfied with complacency - you strive to do your best at whatever task you’ve undertaken. You begin to develop self-discipline and willpower and learn the importance of sticking to a task till the end.

Acceptance
If Courage is the realization that you are the source of your life’s experiences, then it is here where you become the creator of them. Combined with the skills learned in the Willingness phase, you begin to awaken your potential through action. Here’s where you begin to set and achieve goals and to actively push yourself beyond your previous limitations. Up to this point you’ve been generally reactive to what life throws at you. Here’s where you turn that around, take control, and become proactive.

Reason
The level of science, medicine, and a desire for knowledge. Your thirst for knowledge becomes insatiable. You don’t waste time in activities that do not provide educational value. You begin to categorize all of life and its experiences into proofs, postulates, and theories. The failure of this level is you cannot seem to separate the subjective from the objective, and because of that, you tend to miss the point. You fail to see the forest because you’re tunnel-visioned on the trees. Paradoxically, Reason can become a stumbling block for further progressions of consciousness.

Love
Only if, in the level of Reason you start to see yourself as a potential for the greater good of mankind, will you have enough power to enter here. Here is where you start applying what was learned in your reasoning and you let the heart take over rather than the mind - you live by intuition. This is the level of charity - a selfless love that has no desire except for the welfare of those around them. Gandhi and Mother Theresa are examples of people who were living at this level. Only 0.4 percent of the world will ever reach it.

Joy
This is the level of saints and advanced spiritual people. As love becomes more unconditional, there follows a constant accompaniment of true happiness. No personal tragedy or world event could ever shake someone living at this level of consciousness. They seem to inspire and lift all those who come in contact with them. Your life is now in complete harmony with the will of Divinity and the fruits of that harmony are expressed in your joy.

Peace
Peace is achieved after a life of complete surrender to the Creator. It is where you have transcended all and have entered that place that Hawkins calls illumination. Here, a stillness and silence of mind is achieved, allowing for constant revelation. Only 1 in 10 million (that’s .00001 percent) people will arrive at this level.

Enlightenment
This is the highest level of human consciousness where one has become like God. Many see this as Christ, Buddha, or Krishna. These are those who have influenced all of mankind.
Hawkins’ Power vs. Force and his associated map of consciousness has been a groundbreaking work for those interested in human-consciousness development. In this continuum we can clearly see where we as individuals function and where we can arrive. A view into what could be our potential is inspiring.
It’s interesting to note that according to Hawkins, everything that is around us can effect our level of consciousness: the music we listen to, the people with whom we associate, the books we read, the shows that we watch, etc. After reading this book, I began to see myself and those around me in a different light. I guess you could say I felt more compassion for others. We are all at different levels of consciousness and are functioning according to the light and knowledge that we’ve obtained. This has helped me to better understand what drives people and why they make specific choices.

How can you raise your own level of consciousness? I would suggest first to figure out where you presently are - awareness is always the first step. Learn from the Great Ones who are the source of the ‘wisdom literature’ of your tradition and try to live the principles taught in those books. As you raise your own level, you will discover a desire to help others and you’ll be a source of positive change for yourself and the world.

In the 1960s, Dr. John Goodheart developed Applied Kinesiology (AK) into a practical diagnostic technique used mainly by chiropractors and holistic health practitioners. Based on the principle that “your body doesn’t lie,” AK or muscle testing assists these practitioners in uncovering what is going on in the body as well as determining whether or not a specific remedy would be beneficial. By testing the instantaneous response of a particular muscle, AK practitioners are able to more clearly navigate the complexities of the human body: If a tested muscle stayed strong, a substance was good for the body, and if it went weak, it was not.

Psychiatrist Dr. John Diamond further expanded Dr. Goodheart’s work by discovering that different images, paintings, music, games and material affect the body. For example, he found that classical music makes people go strong, while rap music makes everyone go weak. Similarly, synthetic clothing makes you weak and natural fibers make you strong. The implications of Dr. Diamond’s work, called Behavioral Kinesiology (BK), were profound: Everything we interact with either strengthens or weakens our life energy.

Psychiatrist Dr. David R. Hawkins realized the universality of muscle testing response—“what is good for you is good for me.” To test the hypothesis, Dr. Hawkins put a thousand people in a room, each with a sealed envelope. Half the room was given organic vitamin C and the other half a packet of NutraSweet. None of the participants were aware of the content of their envelope. Each person was tested using muscle testing (as described in the next section). The result was that half of the room went weak while the other half stayed strong. The 500 hundred people who went weak were holding the envelope with NutraSweet and the 500 hundred who stayed strong had the organic vitamin C—Dr. Hawkins had uncovered physiologic testings usefulness as the ultimate truth detector.
By following a simple procedure and making a clearly defined statement, one’s muscles either stay strong or go weak. Statements can be asked about anyone or anything from past to present. You can calibrate the level of truth of a politician, a Fortune 500 CEO or your next-door neighbor. Want to determine the validity of a new scientific theory? Test it. You don’t need to know anything about the topic in order to test a statement. The answer you receive from the kinesiologic response transcends your own knowledge and beliefs; you are accessing the infinite intelligence of the collective field (or Collective Unconscious) that binds us together. Interestingly, physiologic testing calibrates at 600—the level of non-duality which means the technique itself transcends a complete intellectual (i.e. linear) understanding of the phenomenon. When one muscle-testing in the above fashion, one is accessing the timeless, spaceless, database of consciousness itself. -Scott Jeffery

Quotes by Dr. David R. Hawkins
Quotes, The Eye of the I:
We change the world not by what we say or do but as a consequence of what we have become. Thus, every spiritual aspirant serves the world. (Eye, 69)

To let go of the known for the unknown requires great commitment, willingness, and devotion to surrendering one’s faith to God. (Eye, 110)

There is no inner ‘thinker’ behind thoughts, no ‘doer’ behind actions, no ‘seeker’ of enlightenment. Seeking occurs on its own when the time is right, and it emerges as a focus of attention. All aspects and qualities of consciousness are self-actuating and energize each other under the general direction of the will. (Eye, 132)

It is the ultimate human paradox that man’s dependence on perception precludes his being able to know his own identity. (Eye, 220)

There is absolutely nothing in ordinary human experience to compare with the joy of the presence of the Love of God. No sacrifice is too great nor effort too much in order to realize that Presence. (Eye, 289)

The true destiny of man is to realize the truth of the divinity of one’s source and creator which is ever present within that which has been created and is the creator—the Self. (Eye, 87)

To understand the nature of God, it is necessary only to know the nature of love itself. To truly know love is to know and understand God; and to know God is to understand love. (Eye, 88)

In reality, everything occurs of its own, with no exterior cause. Every thing and every event is a manifestation of the totality of All That Is, just as it is at any given moment. Once seen in its totality, everything is perfect at all times and nothing needs an external cause to change it in any way. From the viewpoint of the ego’s positionality and limited scope, the world seems to need endless fixing and correction. This illusion collapses as a vanity.

In Reality, everything is automatically manifesting the inherent destiny of its essence; it doesn’t need any external help to do this. With humility, one can relinquish the ego’s self-appointed role as savior of the world and surrender it straight to God. The world that the ego pictures is a projection of its own illusions and arbitrary positionalities. No such world exists. (Eye, 107)

At some point, the illusion breaks down and the opening for the start of the spiritual quest commences. The quest turns from without to within and the search for answers begins. (Eye, 115)

Q: Where does one begin the search for spiritual truth self-realization called enlightenment?
A: It is simple. Begin with who and what you are. All truth is found within. Use verified teachings as a guide. (Eye, 175)

Like springtime, the promise of a new era in man’s understanding of God is emerging. Now the level of consciousness of mankind is high enough to be able to recognize the truth of a God of Love instead of worshipping the god of guilt and hate. (Eye, 76)

It is helpful to remember that neither Truth nor Enlightenment is something to be found, sought, acquired, gained, or possessed. That which is the Infinite Presence is always present and its realization occurs of itself when the obstacles to that realization are removed. It is therefore not necessary to study the truth but only to let go of that which is fallacious. Moving away the clouds does not cause the sun to shine but merely reveals that which was hidden all along. Spiritual work, therefore, is primarily a letting go of the presumably known for the unknown, with the promise of others who have done it that the effort is more than well rewarded at the end. (Eye, 117)

In turn, every advance that we make in our awareness benefits unseen multitudes and strengthens the next step for others to follow. Every act of kindness is noticed by the universe and is preserved forever. (Eye, 118)

The radiance of God is the light of awareness that reveals the divinity of all that exists. In the stillness of the Infinite Presence, the mind is silent as there is nothing that can be said; all speaks of itself with completeness and exactitude. With this realization one transcends the final duality of existence versus nonexistence because only existence is possible. The opposite of Truth does not exist because Reality excludes non-reality. In this realization resides the peace of God. (Eye, 118)

Nothing in the universe happens by chance or accident. The universe is a coherent concurrence and interaction of innumerable conditions attendant on the infinite number of energy patterns. In the state of Awareness, all this is obvious and can be clearly seen and known. Outside that level of awareness, it could be likened to innumerable, invisible magnetic fields which automatically coalesce or repel one’s position and which interact according to the positions and relative strengths and polarities. Everything influences everything else and is in perfect balance. (Eye, 170)

What the people in the world actually want is the recognition of who they really are on the highest level, to see that the same Self radiates forth within everyone, heals their feeling of separation, and brings about a feeling of peace. To bring peace and joy to others is the gift of the benevolence of the Presence. (Eye, 91)

Much relief is experienced when we realize that by adopting a spiritual life, righteous condemnation and the hate that ensures from it can be left to others. This pursuit of the spiritual ‘good’ benefits all mankind, and it could therefore be said to be the most praiseworthy vocation of all. (Eye, 67)

Spiritual progress is based on acceptance as a matter of free will and choice and thus everyone experiences only the world of their own choosing. The universe is totally free of victims and all eventualities are the unfolding of inner choice and decision. (Eye, 61)

The experience of the presence of God is available and within at all times, but awaits choice. That choice is made only by surrendering everything other than peace and love to God. In return, the divinity of the Self reveals Itself as ever present but not experienced because it has been ignored or forgotten, or one has chosen otherwise. (Eye, 48)

Spiritual truth, then, is universally true and without variation through time or place. It always brings peace, harmony, accord, love, compassion, and mercy. Truth can be identified by these qualities. All else is the invention of the ego. (Eye, 40)

Peace is literally a choice and a decision, although not a popular one in our society despite all the rhetoric about the term. The decision to overlook the seeming inequities of life instead of reacting to them is a choice. (Eye, 198)

When perception ceases, the world of wonder reveals itself. Consciousness is in all that exists. It recognizes itself manifesting as the Allness of Creation. (Eye, 228)

In reality, the love of God, like the sun, shines equally on all. (Eye, 235)

In the Reality of non-duality, there is neither privilege nor gain nor loss nor rank. Just like a cork in the sea, each spirit rises or falls in the sea of consciousness to its own level by virtue of its own choices, and not by any external force or favor. Some are attracted by the light and some seek the darkness, but it all occurs of its own nature by virtue of divine freedom and equality. (Eye, 262)

Q: What prayers are useful?
A: Ask to be the servant of the Lord, a vehicle of divine love, a channel of God’s will. Ask for direction and divine assistance and surrender all personal will through devotion. Dedicate one’s life to the service of God. Choose love and peace above all other options. Commit to the goal of unconditional love and compassion for all life in all its expression and surrender all judgment to God. (Eye, 201)

Quotes from I: Reality and Subjectivity: by David R. Hawkins
When one realizes that one is the universe, complete and at one with All That Is, forever without end, no further suffering is possible. (I, xxii)

The destiny of the spirit will be for better or worse, depending on the choices and decisions one makes. (I, 154)

Beliefs are the determinants of what one experiences. There are no external ‘causes.’ (I, 22)

Thus, if we take responsibility for being the author of our world, we come close to its source where we can correct it. (I, 22)

The soul is the author of its own fate by the exercise of its own choice and selection. (I, 24)

Truth has no opposites, such as falsity or ‘off-ness.’ Nothing is hidden from the field of consciousness.

The level of consciousness is determined by the choices made by the spiritual will and therefore is the consequence as well as the determinant of karma. Freedom to evolve requires a world which affords the greatest opportunity to ascend or descend the spiritual ladder. Viewed from that perspective, this is an ideal world and its society is constituted by a wide range of experiential options. (I, 80)

Exploration is innate to mankind, and its highest levels lead to spiritual inquiry. This brings up the questions of who am I, what am I, where did I come from, what is the origin and destiny of the self, and who and where is God. (I, 117)

The human mind is incapable of discerning truth from falsehood. (I, 117)

The spiritual aspirant, therefore, is wise to detach from all positionalities and opinions and be willing to surrender the ego’s temporary satisfactions for a higher goal. (I, 177)

All life ebbs and flows. Everyone is born, suffers afflictions, and dies. There are happiness and sadness, catastrophe and success, increase and decrease. The stock market rises and falls. Diseases and accidents come and go. The karmic dance of life unfolds in the karmic theatre of the universe.

All reactions to life are subjective. There is nothing happening that is awful, exciting, sad, good, or bad. It is pointless to hold a position that catastrophes shouldn’t ‘happen’ or that the innocent ‘didn’t deserve it’, or ‘isn’t it awful’, or ‘it must be somebody’s fault’. With a broad view, one can remain unperturbed by either the content or the context of life. That requires giving up judgments, expectations, or ‘sensitivities’ (I, 179)
My memoir  "From Hollywood to God"  is now on Amazon and Kindle books!

Sneak-A-Peek Below!
My first stop was to The World Sound Healing Conference in San Francisco. I wanted to understand the science of frequencies, especially if everything in the universe was vibrating to their own unique song! I waited in the large conference room to hear Dr. Susan Yale's lecture on the Harmonic Oscillator. The room went dark and three pyramids projected on a large movie screen.


"You can hear the sound of "nature" between the Pyramids of Giza," Dr. Yale said, pausing, "it's a perfect F Sharp." No one moved. She spoke slowly, "If you knew there was a place in the world where you could hear God, would you go?" I always wanted to swim in the Nile! ~ from my Memoir, (click link—"From Hollywood to God"  Kelly Granite Enck on Amazon books and Kindle.
