[Book Review] Levels of Energy ~ Frederick E. Dodson

It's been a while since I last posted a book review. So there you go!

I've been reading Levels of Energy by Fredtrick Dodson ever since I finished my Spring final exams. It's been on my reading map for 2014 but I changed my priorities and started with it this summer and left the other books aside. Did I mention that I gifted myself a Kindle Paperwhite? It's the happiest thing that has happened to me in months. I'm so happy and content with my choice. It's keeping me a good company in between classes, in my shuttle rides and during waiting times here and there.

So anyway, the book review! The author of this book talks about levels of energy and consciousness human possess as they go on their life journey. And how each level attracts certain events, emotions and people. He made it very easy to comprehend by linking one emotional state like anger, pride, etc. to each level.

He came up with his own energy scale in which he was immensely inspired by stuff like the ancient tamas-rajas-sattva-moksha model of Hinduism and other similar-in-concept energy and consciousness scales by Abraham-Hicks and Hawkins.

I personally found reading the first levels (up to 200) quite disturbing and emotionally challenging. But then I was massively relieved by reading the higher levels.

As a Muslim in belief, it was interesting to see how he thought mosques have a high energy "the good energy" according to his scale.

Do I recommend the book? Yes, if you are ready. It helps you get a better understanding of self and others. Other people (other reviewers) reported that they witnessed a change in their energy level right after reading the book. I haven't seen a change yet, but it gave me an insight in how to and I probably didn't do much work in that sense yet. I'm a work in progress though.

A friend I was talking to about the book (while reading it) thought the whole energy fields and us affecting and being effected by them is a complete non-sense. Well, to me arguing this is more like arguing that water is H2O if you know what I mean. :)

So that was about it in a nutshell (according to me). I hope you enjoyed the review and again go ahead and read it if you are ready!
Until the next review, bye!
