What Is The Field of Consciousness, and How It Can Help You
The field of Consciousness has many names in different literature but refers to the same concept: The All, the Universal Mind, the One Mind, the Collective Unconscious, the Field of Consciousness.
Everything in this universe is made up of energy and radiates a specific frequency that remains permanently in what is called the Field of Consciousness, a web of energy that connects everything in the universe.
We are all part of this energy exchange; our energy is constantly interacting with the field.
All events, thoughts, feelings, and attitudes are recorded forever.
This universal field is full of information that can be retrieved and repeatedly called upon at any time, in the present or in the future.
This is because our consciousness is not stored in our brain; instead, our brain is a receiver that picks up the signal of our consciousness from the field. It is through this field that we are connected to all life.
In 1908, a book called The Kybalion was published by the Yogi Publication Society, written by a person or persons under the pseudonym of “Three Initiates.”
It contains the essence of the verbal teaching traditions of Hermetic Principles which describe the underlying laws of the universe.
This book contains 7 Sacred Principles of Manifestation. The first sacred principle, called Mentalism, explains that the universe is composed of an all-encompassing Divine Mind, its thoughts, and thought-forms.
This Divine Mind includes all individual minds: thoughts, emotions, feelings, and cognition. Our highest self is an extension of that Mind.
Mentalism contains the idea that “All Is Mind.”
Larry Dossey, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters, explains that the concept of the One Mind is ancient, and it remains an honored belief in many wisdom traditions.
He writes, “The esoteric sides of all the major religions recognize that our individual consciousness is subsumed and nourished by an infinite, absolute, divine, or cosmic source, and is ultimately one with it.”
Dossey describes our mind as immortal and eternal, not confined to our brain or body but extending infinitely outside of it.
We can see the power of the field at work in the classic example of a mother who “just knows” her child is in danger, or between siblings who feel each other’s pain. Numerous studies have tested this phenomenon in which people often exchange thoughts and emotions at a distance.
The link is proven very strong in cases where hurt is involved, like a calling from one to another.
We are all connected in this field, and you have probably been aware of it, or felt it. Have you ever felt you were being watched, only to turn around and see that somebody was staring at you?
Nature is also in constant telepathic communication through the field.
For example, some studies show how pets will go to wait at the door when their owner (who is away from home) shows intent to go home.
It can also be observed that large groups of animals, herds, and flocks frequently behave in highly coordinated ways, implying a shared, overlapping mind.
Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D., a British biologist, researcher, and author, has studied this phenomenon extensively.
He proposes that memory is inherent in nature and that natural systems, such as termite colonies or fish schools, inherit a collective memory from all previous things of their kind. He explains that animal telepathy is a consequence of the way animal groups are organized by what he calls Morphic Fields.
Sheldrake explains how detectives are sometimes trained not to stare too often or intently at the back of people they are following, so as not to provoke the individual to turn around, and that celebrity photographers report similar experiences.
Celebrities being secretly photographed up to half a mile away often turn around and look down the lens of the camera.
Hunters and wildlife photographers report similar experiences: animals seem to know when they are being stalked, turning toward the telescopic sight of the camera.
In The Sense of Being Stared At, Sheldrake suggests that through our attention we create fields of perception that stretch out around us, connecting us to what we are looking at.
Through these fields, the observer and the observed are interconnected. Mental fields that extend beyond the brain may also help explain telepathy.
Sheldrake’s experiments and findings in the subject are described at length in his books.

Implications of the Field in our daily lives – How it can help you
Because we are part of this Universal Mind, we can’t always control the thoughts that enter our head.
You might have started a conversation on a topic when somebody exclaimed they were thinking the same thing. When somebody has a thought, it circulates, and it is not long before somebody else in close proximity has the same thought.
That’s why we should be conscious of what we think and what we say; we can choose to send out positive or negative vibrations through the way we think and feel.
This really sums up what the Law of Attraction is about. If we think positive thoughts and have positive feelings, we are sending out positive vibrations, which in turn will attract experiences (and thoughts) of matching vibrations. Like attracts like.
We have complete control over what thoughts stay in our head so every time we change our thoughts we can change our experience, the more positive the better.
Have you ever gone into a room full of people and felt the tension?
It is likely that you were picking up many conflicting and angry thoughts. That is why it feels so good to be around uplifting, positive people, and so bad to be around negative people; the negativity literally gets in our heads and we feel it in our bodies. It is also physically detrimental for the negative person to perpetuate this behavior for long periods of time.
Connecting with the field is important because in the field resides all the synchronistic events and all the answers to the questions we have.
You can connect to the field of consciousness in 3 ways:
- By listening to your intuition while meditating, walking in nature, doing some creating endeavors such as painting or cooking, and being in silence.
- Using kinesiology (as discussed later in this post). You can get accurate answers very quickly if you do it right.
- Asking your guides and angels to help you. I have written an entire post that will show you how you can ask help to the universe.
Our higher self knows what we came to accomplish on Earth and who we need to meet in order to achieve it.
When we put a request out, for example, a question about an issue, our higher self will tap into the field and through our intuition and emotions (with an image, a thought, or a gut feeling to go somewhere or do something), it will provide the answer.
The dreams we have are all definitely possible for us to achieve this lifetime; we would not have them if we could not make them a reality.
We will only be able to retrieve information from the field that reflects our level of consciousness and intent. If we mean well and our intent is pure, we will get information that vibrates at that level.
If we mean to hurt or harm another, we will only receive muddled up, sick thoughts, because those will be the thoughts that vibrate at low levels of hate.
This is why some psychics are very good and some are not.
All readings done, either through intuition, oracle or tarot cards, or through any other type of psychic phenomena such as channeling, are only as good as the psychic’s consciousness and intent.
Genuine psychics who intend to help you (and with your permission) will be able to tap and retrieve the information you need. Psychics who just want to get your money, or show off “their gifts,” will not get accurate information.
If you want to visit a psychic your intuition will guide you to choose effectively.
You always know when something or someone doesn’t feel right.
The Law of Attraction and the Law of Karma regulate this exchange of information.
Calibrating the Field of Consciousness
To become more conscious is the greatest gift anyone can give to the
world; moreover, in a ripple effect, the gift comes back to its source.
DAVID R. HAWKINS, IN POWER VERSUS FORCE
Sir David R. Hawkins, MD., Ph.D., is a nationally renowned psychiatrist, physician, researcher, spiritual teacher, author, and lecturer. His research findings have been published widely in medical, scientific, and psychoanalytic journals.
Dr. Hawkins has found a way to calibrate the field using kinesiology, or muscle testing.
In his book, Power Versus Force: The Hidden Determinants in Human Behavior, he explains that all events in the universe are recorded in a Field of Consciousness beyond time, locality, and the recall of memory.
This record is then retrievable forever by a simple physiological phenomenon called muscle testing. He is then able to determine the truth or falsehood of any statement.
The muscle testing response is a simple “yes” or “no” to a specific stimulus.
It is usually done by a person holding out an extended arm, and the tester pressing down on it, using light pressure. Usually, the test person holds something to be tested in the hand of the other arm; for example, an envelope with a statement inside.
The tester tries to press the arm down, and says to the person, “Resist.”
If the item to be tested is beneficial to the person (or true), the arm will remain strong with the recognition of truth; the person is able to resist the pressure.
If it is not beneficial, has an adverse effect, or doesn’t have existence within the field, the arm will go weak; the arm of the person is unable to resist the pressure (in this case, the envelope might contain a false statement).
Through kinesiology calibrations taken over 20 years, Hawkins analyzed the whole spectrum of human consciousness, on a scale from one to 1,000, and created a profile of human experience which he calls the Map of Consciousness.
Levels under 200 are considered to be “false”: destructive, draining, depleting of energy, and temporary.
Levels over 200 are considered to be “true”: self-sustaining, constructive, energizing, and invincible.
The energy calibration of various states of awareness (from one to 1000), can be found at the Consciousness Calibration Research Technique Blog (CCTR Blog)
At the low end of the scale are qualities such as guilt (30), fear (100), racism (110), revenge (150), and actions like bullfighting (35) or hunting wild animals (30). At higher levels over 200 are tolerance (245), cooperation (480), and Zen Buddhism (890).
With muscle testing, we should be able to tell the truth from falsehood about anything anywhere in time or space.
The test itself proves to be independent of personal opinion or belief, and it doesn’t matter if the person being tested is a child or an adult.
The response was also the same whether a statement was vocalized or made silently. The results were predictable, repeatable, and universal. The higher the level of consciousness of the team, the more accurate the results were.
It is important to note that both the intention of the tester and the one being tested have to calibrate over 200 to obtain accurate responses.
Hawkins claims that this technique provides people the means by which to calibrate levels of truth and determine whether they are being misled in any situation.
The implications of this simple procedure extend into law, criminal justice, psychotherapy, politics, medicine, and beyond.
You can try this technique at home with a friend or partner to get the answers you need. And of course, you can also use your intuition.
You can also self-test following these techniques (Kinesiology is one of 9 ways you can ask the universe for help, as explained in this post: 9 Awesome Ways to Ask Assistance from the Universe)
1) Self-test with your fingers
Place your left hand palm up (if you are left handed use your right hand). Connect the tip of your thumb with the tip of your little finger.
Now ask yourself a question (start with an easy yes/no question you know the answer to). After asking you press your fingers (tip to tip). Now, with the same amount of pressure try to pull them apart with your other hand. (With the other hand you have also connected your fingers, this time your thumb and your index)
It is probably easier to see it in video: the following one is great, by Making Willow 4U
2) Self-test with your body
You can bring a product or an envelope with a statement close to your heart, close your eyes, and ask your body to sway forward if the answer is yes, or backwards if the answer is no.
