Hello Folks and welcome to a very special episode number 17 where we will be exploring with our Whole Brain as we revisit the levels of Human Consciousness from David R Hawkins’ book Power vs. Force. We have shared a lot of information from his book in previous episodes, but just as a reminder, a little bit about David and his work.

Relax and Enjoy as we begin by listening to a song covered by Martha Reich called Cracked Up From Loneliness originally written by Donald Rubinstein, composer of the songs’ music and lyrics, is working on releasing a full length album titled 36 Year Serenade with his compositions covered by many well known respected women artists. Rubinstein invited Martha to cover one of his songs for this project, and she chose Cracked up from Loneliness.

We will now go through the levels of human consciousness, according to David’s research, in order from survival levels such as shame, and guilt to levels of reason and integrity which begins at courage and reaches all the way up to levels which allow us to be conscious at the spiritual levels love through enlightenment.

OK, here we go with Cracked up from Loneliness. This song explores feelings of shame, guilt and more. See how much you can relate to these feelings…and after this song we will continue in a sensory whole brain experience including more art, readings, music, stories and quotes which will allow you to experience the natural uplift as we progress higher and higher up through the levels of consciousness. Enjoy!

What a beautiful piece…sometimes we need to remind ourselves that no feelings, or levels of consciousness, are bad or good, they are simply different places we can be as we grow and experience life. Guilt, which can be laden with blame; precedes the next level of consciousness higher which is apathy. Apathy tends to be more of a hopeless despair, but eventually gives way to grief.

Wow, isn’t that just amazing that something like grief which is often associated with tragic regret is actually a sign of an improvement from apathy. Of course, we want you to keep raising that frequency! The next level of consciousness is fear.

So with all these negative effects of fear…how can we use our fear to continue to raise our frequency? We can use the utterly uncomfortable nature of this status to encourage growth from all challenging situations. Where fear can lead us to being stuck, it can also fuel our natural desire which encourages action! Desire for something better to move past this will help lead to self improvement and habits which seek to improve one’s station or situation. Often when we desire to make changes for the better, we pray. Please enjoy this song by Tone Freshwater which teaches us to pray out loud for that which our heart desires!

I just love that song! The beat and the energy have my frequency higher already. And as the consciousness temperature rises, what happens? Things get heated!

Sometimes, this is what it takes to let us know enough is enough! Anger has a way of clamoring for changes to be made when something is not right…more than desire alone. Let’s revisit the conversation of game over…when enough is enough!\

Cracked up from Loneliness: Lyrics

By Donald Rubenstein

From 36 Year Serenade

I cracked up from loneliness, I split out the door

left behind some messages, I wish that I did more

like I am a whisper, fading fast from view

Only wished that I had learned to love you.

I cracked up from hard times, from being kind of a rich man’s son

from being the son of an immigrant, who maybe worked too hard

I cracked up in silence, wailing inside my head

and I broke down on highways, where loved ones never tread.

Saw the highway coming, saw my ghost go running

knew I was out of luck, just before the truck and me cracked up

they say just before you die, your life flashes right before your eyes.

I saw the wire coming, I saw the blood running out of me

running like a deep red sea.

Oh lord help me, oh lord help me

oh lord help me, oh lord help me

I cracked up in rhyme, I forgot about the time

forgot about who I’m suppose to be

I cracked up from innocence, from trying to be free

trying to be.

Oh saw the highway coming, saw my ghost come running

knew I was out of luck, before the truck and me cracked up

they say right before your die, your life flashes right before your eyes

I saw the wire coming, saw the blood running out of me

running like a deep red sea.

Oh lord help me, oh lord help me

oh lord help me, oh lord help me

Like I am a whisper, fading fast from view

only wish that I had learned to love you

only wish that I had learned to love you

only wish that I had learned to love you

Oh lord help me, saw the highway coming

oh lord help me, saw my ghost go running

oh lord help me, oh lord help me

oh lord help me, oh lord help me

Podcast Episode 17 – Part/Seg 2 – Script


And once we really start looking at problems like this, as things we can change or get out of, or move on from, we start to build our self esteem. This includes our pride and ego. So this tells us, what it is when we start to feel a small hint of power versus force as we become more encouraged, and have greater feelings of empowerment brought on by the energy level of courage. From here we begin to feel more trust, and start to accept feelings of neutrality… This is a feeling we can understand listening to the song Digital Radio by Laurianne Fiorentino. Consider once you are in your confidence how you may no longer feel as defensive of your positions or ideas, and may also be able to let go of trying to be as controlling of others paths as a part of your willingness to work on yourself.

I would like to share a story with you now, which really exemplifies a time in my life when I had completely moved on from a situation in which I had tried to resolve an ongoing conflict, and had not been able to “sweep the dust off the path” as playfully put by Laurianne in this last musical piece. In this case, I had already found myself in neutrality, having stepped away from my field, as I will explain in detail in a minute, but was called to willingness to actually revisit a past issue and face it with strength. Willingness, which is at level 310 on David R. Hawkins scale, is associated with being inspired, hopeful and associated with intention.

What better way to measure our personal growth than to look back on a painful story from the past, from which we are now able to find purpose in the pain. We learn from our experiences when we try something to handle our situations. Even in failure we learn something. I learned, amongst much else, to accept help from others, who accepted me for who I was. In Community we learn to love other people as ourselves. Acceptance is the next level of consciousness from David R. Hawkins’ book Power vs. Force. At this level which is 350, forgiveness, harmony, mercy and transcendence emerge. Let’s explore this level of human consciousness through a beautiful Cather text.

Yes folks, the Cathar Church of Love accepts all, and with acceptance we raise our frequency even higher as we start looking to really understand others, and ourselves. The next level of Human consciousness as studied by David R. Hawkins is reason. Reason is at level 400 and highest level before love and the other spiritual paradigm levels. Reason, being above the lower emotional levels, is associated with intelligence, and reasoning. Hawkins says this is the level of science and medicine. At this level, too unbalanced of an identification with only the mind, (think left brain!) can leave people lacking in abilities that allow them to continue to raise their frequency into the domains above reason, love, joy, peace and enlightenment (think right brain!).

The music of Antipodean Writer, will play as a sound bed for the next reading. Antipodean Writer publishes original poetry, short stories and music from the Antipodes. The song is called Soulection-twilight, and you will now hear me recite a poem by Kahlil Gibran. Kahlil’s writing has been featured in my podcast before. He is the author of The Prophet, and he was born January 6, 1883, in Bsharri, Lebanon. This poem is called On Reason and Passion and is from The Prophet, written in 1923.

“And the priestess spoke again and said: Speak to us of

Reason and Passion. And he answered, saying: Your soul is

oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason and your

judgement wage war against your passion and your appetite.

Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul, that I might

turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness

and melody. But how shall I, unless you yourselves be also the

peacemakers, nay, the lovers of all your elements? Your reason

and your passion are the rudder and the sails of your seafaring

soul. If either your sails or your rudder be broken, you can but

toss and drift, or else be held at a standstill in mid-seas.

For reason, ruling alone, is a force confining and passion,

unattended, is a flame that burns to its own destruction.

Therefore let your soul exalt your reason to the height of

passion, that it may sing; And let it direct your passion with

reason, that your passion may live through its own daily

resurrection and like the phoenix rise above its own ashes. I

would have you consider your judgment and your appetite even

as you would two loved guests in your house. Surely you would

not honor one guest above the other; for he who is more mindful

of one loses the love and the faith of both.

Among the hills, when you sit in the cool shade of the white

poplars, sharing the peace and serenity of distant fields, and

meadows—then let your heart say in silence, ‘God rests in

reason.’ And when the storm comes, and the mighty wind

shakes the forest, and thunder and lightning proclaim the

majesty of the sky, then let your heart say in awe, ‘God moves

in passion.’ And since you are a breath in God’s sphere, and a

leaf in God’s forest, you too should rest in reason and move in

Digital Radio – Laurianne Fiorentino – Lyrics

from When I’m an Angel

I can wrap your skin in rays of the sun

As soon as every day has begun

To remind you you’re not the only one

Oh yeah I’ve been a fool like you

I can slip the song my raven sings

onto your finger as a friendship ring

To remind you that courage is a sacred thing

for far too long it’s been taboo

I can turn the Digital Radio on

To prove to you all the static is gone

And sweep the dust off the path you’re on

This is all I can do for you my love

This is all I can do for you

I can ask the stars in your eyes at night

To reveal the moon who sometimes hides her light

So you can see yourself through your second sight

What your heart has always known

Round the turning and through the fire

We meet again and again in a squall of desire

Love will find a way as it will surely tire

of these endless fields of snow

I can simmer shadows of the afternoon

And steep them in the mystery of the simplest tune

To quench the thirst that always hunts for you

Every where you go

We three will melt like ice in July

Oh you haven’t till now and neither have I

For you’ve been promised to fear and I to the lie

The war is over, we’ve made it through

Can you hear me now, can you dial me in

Am I loud & clear or is the signal too thin

With reception so good why don’t you pull me through,

You got your eye on me and I got nothing on you
