Power vs Force
Power vs Force is a book that explains the ability to distinguish truth or falsehood of any statement using kinesiologyDr. David R. Hawkins is a nationally renowned psychiatrist, physician, researcher and lecturer, as his listing in Who's Who in America amply attests. He has been a guest of MacNeil/Lehrer, Barbara Walters and The Today Show. His previous book, Orthomolecular Psychiatry, co-authored with Nobelist Linus Pauling, sold out completely. By the end of 1995, word-of mouth sales of POWER vs. FORCE were increasing by ten per cent a week.
POWER vs. FORCE is the culmination of twenty years' research. In it, David Hawkins conclusively proves the ability of kinesiological testing to distinguish truth or falsehood in any statement—an astonishing idea in itself, with far reaching implications for every aspect of human life. He goes on to demonstrate the application of his method (explained clearly for the layman) in commerce, art, sport, etc. Then he explains its spiritual application, as a path to enlightenment
Beyond this, Dr. Hawkins demonstrates kinesiological calibration as a tool for assessing value and motive, revealing the hidden determinants of human behavior—and establishing a Map of Consciousness that illuminates the spiritual ladder we must follow as a race and as individuals.
The volume concludes with compendious notes and bibliography, and, finally, a fascinating narrative of the author's own journey from atheism to spiritual enlightenment.From the Author of Power vs Force:
All human endeavor has the common goal of understanding or influencing human experience. To this end, man has developed numerous descriptive and analytical disciplines: Morality, Philosophy, Psychology, and so on....Regardless what branch of inquiry one starts from - philosophy, political theory, theology - all avenues of investigation eventually converge at a common meeting point: the quest for an organized understanding of the nature of pure consciousness... To explain that which is simple can be difficult indeed. Much of this book is devoted to the process of making the simple obvious. If we can understand even one simple thing in depth, we will have greatly expanded our capacity for comprehending the nature of the universe and life itself.
David R. Hawkins, M.D. Ph.D.

Truth vs. Falsehood: How to Tell the Difference
Kinesiology was developed in the 60’s by Chiropractors in the United States of America. Since then it has developed into a natural therapy in its own right, in fact Kinesiology is now the world’s fastest growing natural therapy. Kinesiology uses muscle monitoring to assess and correct imbalances in the body’s different structures.
In the model of Kinesiology there is a connection between the physical structures such as the muscles, bones, hormones, neurology, etc and the energetic structures such as the aura, chakras, meridians, etc. Muscle monitoring gives the practitioner the ability to assess the stress levels in the physical and energetic structures. After the source of the stress has been identified, muscle monitoring allows the practitioner to find what would be the most appropriate correction technique to correct the imbalance. This eliminates the need for guess work, thereby making the corrections very efficient.
The correction techniques used are typically acupressure, reflexology, emotional stress diffusion, sound healing (tuning forks), colour healing, flower essences, chakra balancing, etc. Other correction techniques can be employed according to the practitioners training. This makes kinesiology a very complimentary modality for other alternative therapies. For example Kinesiology has successfully integrated into the practises of Naturopaths, Homeopaths, Herbalists, and Traditional Chinese Practitioners among others.
Kinesiology is non-invasive, the client can keep all their issues in their head, thereby respecting the clients need for privacy.
A handbook of Dowsing
Dowsing has a long, illustrious and checkered history. Because it accesses the realm of intuition, however, it is often sneered at in these rational times. But in fact, most people are using their 'dowsing response' constantly - they just call it something else, like 'a hunch', a 'gut feeling', a 'sixth sense', 'first impression' and so on. A dowsing response is simply a kind of self-registering biofeedback.
Dowsers' brain waves
It is interesting to note that experiments done with the brain waves of dowsers show up some surprising results. It was established that meditators' brain waves clustered in the lower range, ordinary attention clustered in the middle to upper range, while the practised dowser had brain waves evenly covering pretty much the entire range! This suggests that a dowser's perceptions (when dowsing at least) are operating over a wide band, that such a person is habitually super-attentive, though not just at a mental level. It's rather like a singer with a range of a few octaves rather than just one or two.
Surveys have shown that 35% of people can naturally dowse for water. With the right preparation and exercises, everybody can dowse. It's just built-in to your sensory apparatus, particularly in the brow, the pituitary gland and the adrenal glands, in the form of millions of microscopic magnetite crystals within the cells in those areas. Certain animals have similar equipment, and can navigate unerringly using earth energy currents, or respond accurately to the energies of places. The mechanism used is possibly very low intensity coherent electromagnetic fields moving through the 'energy body', which is a subtle body all living beings have closely allied to the level of acupuncture meridians (or part of what some call the etheric body).
The Energy Body takes in a huge amount of information continuously on many levels, environmental and otherwise. Then the mind (which has been called the static that overlays the energy body), depending on its state of stillness, either allows through some of those perceptions or filters them out.
When the mind allows these perceptions through (by being quiet) we can more easily access our 'dowsing response'. It means that we can access a deeper and different knowledge than the usually superficial rational mental knowledge, valuable though this is in its place. This is what allows us to tune in to other people's energy fields, as well as the fields of places - we might get a sense of well-being in a positive place, and perhaps an uneasy feeling in a place affected by geopathic stress.
In fact, your energy body, while it is yours and has a degree of differentiation from the world around it, is yet also continuous with the energy bodies of other people, animals, plants and the earth itself. This potentially allows you the ability to connect to remote people and places, depending on a number of factors, such as the clarity of your energy body, the amount of practice you’ve done on this level, your ability to quiet the mind, and so on.
Instruments or not?
Dowsing instruments are used simply to amplify certain signals that occur in our energy bodies and the resultant imperceptible signals in our physical bodies. L-rods and pendulums are the most common of these tools, but there are thousands of different tools that have been devised over the centuries. Indeed you can dowse with practically anything.
Other methods of biofeedback
These instruments can be gradually phased out as you develop a sensitivity for the changes in your own body as a result of different energy configurations. For example, among my responses are a rising feeling for 'yes', a sinking feeling for 'no', slight nausea in the belly on noxious sites, spirallic sensations in various places, and so on. I know someone who gets an itch on his cheek when something feels right.
Another popular method of accessing the knowledge of your energy body is the 'sticky fingers' method. Simply rub thumb and finger lightly against each other - most people get a 'yes' as a smooth feeling in the rubbing, while a 'no' occurs when the two fingers seem to stick a little, as if friction were suddenly occurring.
Muscle-testing, or kinesiology, is no more than accessing the energy body of a person and finding a dowsing response of a kind. The tester tests a muscle by pushing down on it against the resistance of the client. When the muscle tests weak, this suggests a 'no' - i.e., the substance or the thought being held at the time has a weakening effect on the client. The opposite holds for the strong response.
And there are other methods. For the moment we'll stick to the L-rods, but please develop any or all of the methods suggested here, and find your best entry into your own wisdom.
Here are some hints for dowsing (and any other time, for that matter!):
1. Exercises to develop your sensitivity
Do these on a regular basis and whenever you're about to have a dowsing session.
