Foundational Basics #4: What is Consciousness? Consciousness Explained by Liz Gracia
S1 E5

In this “foundational basics” episode I am using the metaphor of energy to help answer the question, “What is Consciousness?”.

I liken consciousness and the power that it is to electricity.

I use a light bulb as an example. How much energy does it take to light a light bulb for a month?

On the Map of Consciousness®, I liken it to the level of consciousness of 200, where you are just stepping into some power. Below 200 the bulb won’t work.

Now suppose you need more energy to say…run a refrigerator for a month. Isn’t it fair to say it’s going to take way more power to run a refridgerator for a month than a lightbulb?

So let’s say the energy to run a refrigerator is more like 310 on Map of Consciousness®…and so on.

The Map of Consciousness®, however, is VAST! In fact, to move up 1 point on the map over a lifetime can be life-changing.

Consciousness is also the presence of Divinity, Truth, and Infinite Power. If you want to manifest or create something significant in your life, you need more power to do it.

More power = aligning with higher levels of consciousness.

In order to align with higher levels of consciousness, you need to remove the inner blocks to higher consciousness.

You can remove the inner blocks to all that you would want to experience in life by learning how to let go of lower levels of consciousness…in other words….“Letting go and letting God”.

So my intention is to just keep the answer to “What is Consciousness?” as simple and metaphorical as possible just to get your feet wet and help you feel like you are “getting it”!

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.
