High Vibe Book Recommendation and My #1 Go-To Tool for Healing


This week I am starting to share book recommendations based on books that are scientifically proven to be of higher consciousness and, therefore, helpful to you! This is my intention.

I also intend to curate books that interest a good portion of our audience and have some significant “high five” reviews on Amazon.

And today’s books I am recommending I have read more than a dozen times each. They are a permanent part of, what I would call, my “Spiritual library” and sit close by me for quick reference and reminders, especially for this podcast at Your Weekly Dose of Higher Consciousness.

These books are also #1 on my list of Top 7 Tools for Personal Transformation and self-healing.

The books I am highly recommending for significant self-healing and personal and spiritual transformation are:
Power vs Force-The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior (which, as of this recording, had over 4600-4.5 star reviews on Amazon) and

They are essentially very similar, except that Power vs Force calibrates at 850 on the Map of Consciousness® and The Map of Consciousness Explained calibrates at 535. They are both superpowers in consciousness, but The Map of Consciousness Explained is much easier to comprehend at 535 on the Map of Consciousness® for most people.

Book Recommendation of Map of Consciousness book Power vs. Force

The book Power vs Force requires more advanced scientific, intellectual, and advanced spiritual capacity and awareness to “get”. This level of consciousness at 850 is known as Spiritual Will, a level for advanced spiritual aspirants and students. It’s a new understanding. It’s also an appreciation for and intention to align with Ultimate Reality.
Based on consciousness research, roughly 77% of the planet is light years from this understanding of truth and power. 77% of the planet calibrates under 200 on the Map of Spiritual Progress.
I was drawn to the book Power vs Force as I was desperately seeking answers to how I attracted what I did in my life on numerous occasions, which were vast swings in consciousness and confrontations with shocking attractor fields.
I’ve discussed this in episode#7 of Your Weekly Dose of Higher Consciousness podcast, which I consider a “Foundational Basics” for understanding this podcast and where I’m coming from. So I’m not going to go too deep into consciousness calibrations and why these books are so significant in helping you self-heal and change your life right now, as I will go deeper into this when I share why it is my #1 on my Top 7 Tool for Transformation List.

Description of the book Power vs. Force from Amazon.com:

Power vs Force by Dr. David R. HawkinsImagine—what if you had access to a simple yes-or-no answer to any question you wished to ask? A demonstrably true answer. Any question . . . think about it.— from the Foreword

We think we live by forces we control, but in fact we are governed by power from unrevealed sources, power over which we have no control.— from the author’s Preface

The universe holds its breath as we choose, instant by instant, which pathway to follow; for the universe, the very essence of life itself, is highly conscious. Every act, thought, and choice adds to a permanent mosaic; our decisions ripple through the universe of consciousness to affect the lives of all.— from Power vs. Force

“[A] beautiful gift of writing . . . [You] spread joy, love, and compassion through what you write. The fruit of these three is peace, as you know . . .”— Mother Teresa

“. . . particularly timely . . . a significant contribution to understanding and dealing with the problems we face today.”— Lee Iacocca

“I especially appreciate [the] research and presentation on the attractor patterns of business . . .”— Sam Walton

“Overwhelming! A masterpiece! A lifetime work!”— Sheldon Deal, President, International College of Applied Kinesiology

Book Recommendation of The Map of Consciousness Explained by Dr. David R. Hawkins:

Description of the book from Amazon.com:

The Map of Consciousness Explained by Dr. David R. Hawkins An accessible exploration of best-selling author’s most famous work, The Map of Consciousness®, that helps readers experience healing and transcendence.

We are all born with a level of consciousness, an energetic frequency within the vast field of consciousness. And with The Map of Consciousness®, we can truly understand the total spectrum of human consciousness.

Using a unique muscle-testing method, Dr. David R. Hawkins conducted more than 250,000 calibrations during 20 years of research to define a range of values, attitudes, and emotions that correspond to levels of consciousness. This range of values-along with a logarithmic scale of 1 to 1,000-became the Map of Consciousness, which Dr. Hawkins first wrote about in his best-selling book, Power vs. Force.

With the Map, Dr. David R. Hawkins laid out the entire spectrum of consciousness, from the lower levels of Shame, Guilt, Apathy, Fear, Anger, and Pride; to Courage, Acceptance, and Reason; all the way up to the more expanded levels of Love, Ecstasy, Peace, and Enlightenment. These “higher” energy fields are a carrier wave of immense life energy.

An essential primer on the late Dr. David R. Hawkins’s teachings on human consciousness and their associated energy fields, The Map of Consciousness Explained offers readers an introduction and deeper understanding
of the Map, with visual charts and practical applications to help them heal, recover, and evolve to higher levels of consciousness and energy.

This book is a light unto the path of any individual who wants to become more effective in any area of life.

Obstacles in Life Are Rooted in Fear

So, I want to introduce you to the author first.

This is content I curated from his website at Vertaspub.com on his biography page:

Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. was a nationally renowned psychiatrist, physician, researcher, spiritual teacher and lecturer.

The uniqueness of his contribution to humanity comes from the advanced state of spiritual awareness known as ” Enlightenment,” “Self–Realization,”and “Unio Mystica.”

Rarely, if ever, has this spiritual state occurred in the life of an accomplished scientist and physician. Therefore, Dr. Hawkins was uniquely qualified to present a spiritual path that is scientifically compelling to modern society.

Founding Director of the Institute for Spiritual Research, Inc. (1983) and Founder of the Path of Devotional Nonduality (2003), Dr. Hawkins lectured widely at such places as Westminster Abbey; Oxford Forum; Universities of Notre Dame, Michigan, Argentina, Fordham and Harvard; University of California (SF) Medical School; Institute of Noetic Sciences; and Agape Spiritual Center (Los Angeles).

In addition, he was an advisor to Catholic, Protestant, and Buddhist monasteries. He has conferred with foreign governments on international diplomacy and has been instrumental in resolving long–standing conflicts that were major threats to world peace.

He was featured in recent documentary films, magazines, and radio interviews (e.g.,Oprah Radio and Institute of Noetic Sciences) for his work in the areas of health, healing, recovery, spirituality in modern life, consciousness research, and meditation.

Dr. Hawkins entered the field of medicine to alleviate human pain and distress, and his work as a physician was pioneering. As Medical Director of the North Nassau Mental Health Center (1956–1980) and Director of Research at Brunswick Hospital (1968–1979) on Long Island, his clinic was the largest practice in the United States, including a suite of twenty–five offices, two thousand out patients ,and several research laboratories.

In 1973, he co–authored the ground–breaking work, Orthomolecular Psychiatry with Nobel Laureate chemist Linus Pauling, initiating a new field within psychiatry.

His clinical breakthroughs brought appearances on The Today Show, The Barbara Walters Show and The Mcneil/Leher News Hour.

In the 1970s, he co–founded several psychiatric organizations, including the Editorial Board of the Journal of Schizophrenia and the Attitudinal Healing Center in New York.

Many awards followed, such as:

  • The Huxley Award for the “Inestimable Contribution to the Alleviation of Human Suffering,”
  • Physicians Recognition Award by the American Medical Association,
  • 50–Year Distinguished Life Fellow by the American Psychiatric Association,
  • the Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame, and a nomination for the prestigious
  • Templeton Prize that honors progress in Science and Religion.

In 1995, in a ceremony officiated by the H.H. Prince Valdemar of Schaumburg–Lippe at the San Anselmo Theological Seminary, he became a knight of the Sovereign Order of the Hospitaliers of St. John of Jerusalem (founded in 1077) in recognition of his contributions to humanity.

A trademark of Dr. Hawkins’s research is his pioneering, internationally–known and applied “Map of Consciousness ©,”presented in the ever–popular book Power vs. Force (1995), translated into over twenty–five languages. The “Map of Consciousness©” incorporates findings from quantum physics and nonlinear dynamics, thereby confirming the classical “stages” of spiritual evolution found in the world’s sacred literature as actual “attractor fields.”

Make your life a living prayer with Dr. David R. Hawkins


All calibrations are based on Dr. David R. Hawkins decades of research into consciousness, and the Map of Consciousness that came from this research, so as to put into context where true, constructive power really exists and where it doesn’t.

The Map of Consciousness is a logarithmic scale of 0-1,000, where 100 on the Map of Consciousness is 10 to the 100th power, 200 is 10 to the 200th power, etc. The higher you go up on the Map of Consciousness, the more quantum in nature the power level comes.

Any calibration below 200 holds no truth and no power and is destructive in nature.

TRUE POWER begins at 200 on the Map of Consciousness (10 to the 200th power) and it is the level of COURAGE. In order to turn around anything that’s negatively oriented in your life, you need to step into courage on the matter in order to do so.
