David Hawkins Promotes a State of Awareness in Readers of His Personal Development Books

David Hawkins is a spiritual teacher and author of personal development books on the subject of enlightenment.

He is a psychiatrist and believes in muscle testing to discern truth of a situation (applied kinesiology). He has also developed a method of calibrating the level of spirituality of a person or thing. His most well known work is "Power vs. Force."

Background of David Hawkins

David Hawkins was born in 1927. He remembers having a sudden awareness of his existence at age three. He had other transformative events during his childhood that led him on a spiritual path.
For example, when he was 12 he was caught in a blizzard, and when trapped in a snow bank, he became oblivious of his physical body and connected with his illuminated Presence. As a result of this experience he lost his fear of death and worked as a minesweeper without fear during WWII. After the war, Hawkins entered medical school and specialized in psychiatry.

When he was 38 years old, David Hawkins contracted a fatal illness that responded poorly to treatment. As he was dying, he called for help from God and felt the illuminated Presence once again. This time it took over his body and Hawkins attained an expanded state of awareness. Because of his perceptions and understandings of reality, he became a very successful psychiatrist and built one of the largest practices in New York. He was introduced to kinesiology, and incorporated it as an integral part of his practice.

When David Hawkins was 48 years old, he left New York and spent the next seven years in reclusive meditation. During that time, he developed a deepened sense of the Presence. He became frustrated at the pain and suffering his patients brought on themselves because of their egos and wished he could heal people on a larger scale rather than one by one.

When he was 68, David Hawkins published his first book, "Power vs. Force."
