If you haven’t had the chance to check out of any material by David Hawkins on consciousness and kinesiology experiments, I strongly recommend them. I have had the pleasure to recently be exposed to some of his lectures and they are amazing and really give you a different perspective on life, death, and our daily activities.

Below is a chart of Power vs Force: the hidden determinants of human behaviour, and is there any wonder that fear and pride (ego) have such a disastrous effect on our trading, when they resonate at such a low level on this chart. One has to do everything possible to stay out of these lower vibrational states for the sake of our trading and our well being.

Meditation, clean eating, and having a clear, well defined trading plan go a long way to keeping your ego in check and leaving fear out of the trading equation. While it’s nearly impossible to eliminate these lower states, the job is to minimize them as much as possible. The good thing is once you start to see some success from your trading plan it almost immediately snowballs into a cycle that starts to eliminate fear. Confidence begets more confidence and then the trick to remain humble and not over-confidence begins.

Just remember that nothing is permanent and everything is in a constant state of change. That trading slump you’re in at this point in time will give way to a couple of wins that you can then string together into a couple more. That great week you had this week will only continue getting better if you continually work at being better.

Everything is connected in life…whether your talking about your trading or what you expose yourself to on a day to day basis.

Powerful patterns are associated with health, weak patterns are associated with sickness. Every thought, emotion, word & action has one pattern or the other. Every moment of our day we are either moving towards health or sickness. ~David Hawkins

Fear: (100)
From the viewpoint of this level, the world looks hazardous, full of traps and threats. Once Fear is ones focus, the endless worrisome events of the world feed it. Fear becomes obsessive and may take any form. Fear limits growth of the personality and leads to inhibition. Because it takes energy to rise above Fear, the oppressed are unable to reach a higher level unaided.

Pride: (175)
In contrast to the lower energy fields, people feel positive as they reach this level. However Pride feels good only in contrast to the lower levels. Pride is defensive and vulnerable because it’s dependent upon external conditions, without which is can suddenly revert to a lower level. Pride is fueled by the inflated ego which is always vulnerable to attack. Hence the downside of Pride is arrogance and denial. These characteristics block growth.
