A Ladder of Emotions
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.— Power vs. Force by David R. Hawkins, M.D. Ph.D
The Empowerment Coaching style is based on the Map of Consciousness as explained by David R. Hawkins, M.D. Ph.D, author of Power vs Force. In his book, Dr. Hawkins explains how we are all born with a level of consciousness, an energetic frequency within the vast field of consciousness. Using this Map of Consciousness, we can truly understand the total spectrum of human consciousness and our emotions.
We are complicated emotional beings. Dr. Hawkins explains that wherever we fall emotionally on the Map of Consciousness, that is our starting point. The healing process is very linear and we cannot skip an emotion if we hope for long-term healing.
In other words, if we are experiencing shame, a learned emotion and not a natural one (see my article on Shame), we cannot jump to Courage without first addressing Guilt, Apathy, Grief, Fear, Desire, Anger and Pride.
Courage is the stage at which we can begin to change or transform our lives, but that cannot happen until we deal with the emotion(s) that are holding us back. Bypassing these emotional blocks is a sure path to failure and soon we’ll end up back where we began.
As we proceed up the ladder of emotions, our energy frequency picks up and feeds the next level. When an individual feels Shame, their energy level is very low (20) whereas Enlightenment registers at 700 to 1000—a level very few, if any, have ever attained or sustained for any length of time.
