Our approach to therapy and the development of the ReSource Yourself© Method has everything to do with the work of the American psychiatrist, spiritual teacher and researcher Dr. David R. Hawkins.
Having experienced high states of consciousness, Dr. Hawkins tried to describe these states in words, and started to investigate the nature of consciousness. He contributed immensely to the spiritual growth of many people, and his works are applicable – amongst others – in the fields of healing, health and well-being.
The Map of Consciousness
The foundation of his work is the Map of Consciousness, which describes human experience by referring to different levels of consciousness that correspond with certain emotions, mental perspectives and a physical level of energy.
The lower levels, 0 to 200, are the negative emotions that we experience, and that are often self-destructive and low in energy. The higher levels, 200 to 1000, are the positive emotions that we experience, such as acceptance, love, and peace. Hawkins distinguishes levels of truth vs. levels of falsehood, referring to the positive states above 200, which are seen as life-supporting energies, as “truth”, and to the negative states below 200, which are seen as life-destroying, as “falsehood”.

You can find more details about Dr. Hawkins and his concept in our blog.
In ReSource Yourself©, we apply the Map of Consciousness in many ways:
- To find subconscious blockages and mental programs (It is the backbone of our tool, the Release Technique),
- When identifying the best issues to work with,
- When making sense of your situation and challenges for you as our client,
- For quality control of our therapy, by using applied kinesiology.
Hawkins’ Research & Publications
Apart from the Map of Consciousness, Dr. Hawkins has written various books including those listed below:
Power vs. Force (1995)
Stairway to Enlightenment – Transcending the Levels of Consciousness (2006)
Healing and Recovery (2009)
Letting go (2013)
We highly recommend his book titled “Healing and Recovery” (published in May, 2009), as it served as the inspiration for our tools and therapy.
