What is truth and how to tell the truth vs falsehood. In this episode, I discuss levels of consciousness and understanding the objective levels of truth. How can you tell the difference between what is truth and what is not? That’s what Dr. David R. Hawkins calls chapter 3 in his book Truth VS Falsehood: Truth as Enigma – The Challenge and the Struggle.



How to Tell the Truth About Anything & What the Heck is Truth Anyways?

What is Truth_ How to Tell Truth from falsehood from the Teachings of Dr. David R. Hawkins This week’s episode of Your Weekly Dose of Higher Consciousness asks the question: “What is Truth?” and “how to tell the truth from falsehood?” In this episode, I read some passages from Dr. David R. Hawkins’ book Truth vs Falsehood found in Chapter 3 Truth as Enigma: The Challenge and the Struggle. I also discuss where to discover significant levels of truth in consciousness and ways to align with higher consciousness.

So, what is the truth?

Well, let’s start with the understanding that consciousness is vast. So vast it’s beyond the linear mind to comprehend and grasp. And prior to the consciousness research done throughout the lifetime of Dr. David R. Hawkins, there were no verifiable means for how, to tell the truth.

Humanity had to rely on the mind and the ability to discern truth from falsehood.

Unfortunately, most of humanity and the planet throughout history calibrated below 200 on the Map of Consciousness®. 200 is the critical level of consciousness that is required to enter into the field of positive aspect-oriented, constructive, and supportive consciousness. There is no ability to tell what is the truth vs what is not the truth on a consistent, reliable basis.

Lower levels of consciousness are impersonal attractor-fields for which “there is not enough *gas in the tank” (or energy) to recognize or even care to recognize how, to tell the truth.

The upside is that 50% of the United States and most evolved countries calibrate above 200. So the ability to tell the truth and discern truth vs falsehood is present in some and helps to offset the negativity of the lower levels so that we as a planet can evolve into higher levels of truth.

So what’s interesting is that as you go up the Map of Consciousness® there are greater truths to be understood and embodied. It’s significant to not only understand where higher consciousness truly resides, but embody the energy field of those “impersonal attractor fields” of consciousness.

I observe myself, as I am a student of consciousness and am willing to accept that I am the creator of my own experience, and notice when I shift into the embodiment of an energy field that I care to shift into. It’s quite interesting when you “feel” the difference”. It’s quite an interesting study in consciousness when you observe yourself “feel” the difference as well.

Every level of higher consciousness “embodies” certain truths, that are understandable to the individual at that level of consciousness. (Click here for the episode about the higher levels of consciousness)

As an example, the levels of consciousness in the 200’s are the embodiment of the level of consciousness of courage. Ways of being in the 200s include “Can do” attitudes, and a sense of our own inner power, strength, and self-worth.

As opposed to the level of consciousness of peace in the 600s (which is rare on this planet). According to Dr. Hawkins’s book Letting Go the Pathway to Surrender the 600s is the gateway to enlightenment and “…the hallmark of this level is desirelessness. There is no need to want for anything as everything in our life manifests spontaneously and automatically, without conscious will or effort.”

This level embodies a very high level of consciousness and truth.

So what is truth?

It depends on your level of consciousness and your ability to perceive.

What lens are you looking through to discern the truth?

Is it the lens of:

Each one of these higher levels of consciousness is able to discern what is the truth (to an extent) and cares about how, to tell the truth versus needing to be right about something and willing to be open to a greater understanding.

When your perception is distorted by lower consciousness you can’t discern how, to tell the truth, because you are too caught up in lower levels of consciousness and impersonal attractor fields, that by their nature (no judgment here), distort the truth.

Lower levels of consciousness that distort the truth and bring you down include these feelings and energy fields:

  • righteous pride & demanding scorn (175 ↓),
  • vengeful anger and hatred (150 ↓),
  • disappointing enslavement ( 125 ↓),
  • frightening punitive fear (100 ↓),
  • grief, despondency, and regret ( 75 ↓),
  • hopeless apathetic despair ( 50 ↓),
  • destructive guilt and blame (30↓), and
  • shameful humiliation (20 ↓)

So you gotta’ get honest with yourself!

Are you feeling any of the lower levels of consciousness while trying to discern the truth about anything?

If so, the truth you seek is distorted. And when the truth is distorted, it feeds the lower levels of consciousness or the “Juice” of wanting to be right, angry, vengeful, apathetic, whatever.

If you care about how, to tell the truth about anything, you have to let go of the lower levels of consciousness within you. You also have to be willing to accept that the lower levels of consciousness, however, justified they may seem to you, distort the truth of anything.

*Is There Enough Gas in the Tank?

You can't get to where you want to go without gas in the tank.

Gas Tank Running on Empty

I love the analogy of “gas in the tank” to help you better understand levels of consciousness. If you are operating below 200 on the Map of Consciousness®, which are the lower levels of consciousness, there’s “not enough gas in the tank” to get you where you want to go on any topic if your intention is to head in a positive, constructively manifesting direction.

How to Tell the Truth Versus Falsehood

What is Truth and how can you tell the differenceSo how was the Map of Consciousness derived and how can you tell the truth versus falsehood?

Well, I did an entire episode on how to do muscle testing, also known as applied kinesiology. You can watch this episode here:

Foundational Basics #5: How to Muscle Test for Levels of Consciousness – Consciousness Science

Many people want to know how to muscle test for themselves to get the answers they may be seeking. Maybe you would find this beneficial as well!?!

Dr. David R. Hawkins has videos on YouTube you can refer to here for:

How to Muscle Test: Video 1: The Kinesiologic Technique https://youtu.be/I-4RKKSY_8Y

Video 2: Demonstrating How to Muscle Test with a Child https://youtu.be/56moeNklsSE

In this episode, I discuss how to muscle test for consciousness calibrations and the prerequisites necessary to get accurate responses.

We as a civilization have been blessed with the findings of the research into consciousness.

Hopefully, someday soon, more than 2% of the world will care about the truth. Per consciousness calibrations, only 2% of the world cares about the truth or how, to tell the truth.

In the meantime, students of the teachings of Dr. David R. Hawkins* will continue to share his teachings. In fact, Facebook groups and websites have started up that discuss consciousness calibrations. and share how, to tell the truth. I personally subscribe to ConsciousnessCalibrations.com, as the founder calibrates current issues that impact the world.

I find it super helpful to validate how I feel about certain topics. I notice significant energy sinks as an example, and consciousness calibrations point to the drop in consciousness I felt.

Just sayin’!

It’s good practice to follow your intuition on something especially if it’s an intuitive feeling as opposed to thinking about something.

*Dr. Hawkins is no longer with us. He passed in 2012.

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.
