Thoughts on: “Levels of Energy” by Frederick E. Dodson

DISCLAIMER: This book contains pseudoscience and mentions of aliens and demonic entities. 😀

I love when I get my hands on a book like this that gives me a new lens through which to see the world.

The premise here is that there are clearly definable levels of energy, each corresponding with different actions, situations, environments, states of mind etc.

The different energy levels (EL) makes up a scale of the progression of consciousness. The better part of the book is dedicated to explaining the scale in detail.

A very simplified version of the energy scale:

0-100: Hellish

100-199: Low & Animalistic Emotions

200-299: Function & physicality

300s : Success & productivity

400s: Intellectual

500: Joy & Love

600-1000: Peace & Bliss

Your energy level (EL) has a baseline but might fluctuate due to certain event and actions. A weekend on the couch in front of the TV with accompanying snacks might temporarily bring someone in the 400:s down into the 200:s for example.

This doesn’t mean watching TV is “bad”. For someone with lower ELs, watching TV is a way to increase their state. TV is great at creating desire, which is a step up in EL from the shame, apathy and guilt of those below 100.

Throughout my life I have been through a lot of the different states Dodson talks about in this book and it’s interesting to see how well my experience fits with his description of the ELs, and also how his description of how one ascends to next level (or descends).

📝 Assuming mask identities can drain a lot of energy. The best thing you can do to improve your state is to stop caring what other think about you.

📝 Relax fully and work fully. Most people think about work when they are relaxing and about relaxing when working.

📝 You experience the world, not as it is, but as you are.

📝 Resistance draws towards us what we resist.

⭐️ TAKEAWAY: To communicate effectively it’s important to know what kind of energies you are dealing with. Each levels demands a different approach.


The most interesting and challenging books I’ve read this year. It’s super weird, but I think you can handle it! 😀👌🏻
