This page provides our Top Ten Insights on what defines a well developed human being:

The insights are underpinned by the authors belief that the word ‘development’ needs context and perspective. According to the proven scientific research of Dr David Hawkins, mankind’s ‘level of consciousness’ varies between 1 and 1000. Further research has evidenced that 85% of the worlds population calibrate at a level below 200 (this level is weak and manifests itself through the ego using force to interact with others). 15% of the world’s population calibrate above the level of 200 (this level is strong and manifests itself through ‘the unified whole’ to interact with others). Development is concerned with transcendence from the lower levels to the higher levels (from below 200 to above 200).

Insight Number 1:

Your psyche (consisting of your conscious and sub-conscious) and your psychophysiology (the way your mind and body interact) must exhibit feelings of safety, trust and love. This ‘state of being’ impacts on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual harmony.

physical mental emotional spiritual

It is essential that a human being feels safe and that they feel they can trust themselves (and those closest to them), and that they can feel the love that is within them (and preferably feel the love from others). When a human being has this ‘state of being’, and only when they have it, will they activate their ‘parasympathetic nervous system’ (PNS). The PNS releases positive and creative hormones and regulates the ‘sympathetic nervous system’ (SNS), so you can physically react to situations in a more positive manner rather than ONE THAT INDUCES STRESS – you can transcend from a lower level of consciousness to a higher level. This ‘state of being; this positive development, impacts on physical appearance and performance; it impacts on rest and sleep and recovery and your natural circadian and ultradian rhythms; it impacts on the release of all your hormones and determines how you feel; it impacts on your motivation and self-respect; it impacts on your understanding of what is going on in your life and how you react  / overreact to life; it impacts on your purpose in life – it is the most important aspect of your life and you should do everything within your power (and the control of others) to ensure that ‘safety, trust and love’ are felt in your total being.

Insight Number 2:

The opportunity to pursue a desire with creativity without any expectation imposed or felt – this is being at a ‘level of consciousness’ above 200! As a baby, infant, child, teenager and even as an adult, we often ‘modify our being’  to accommodate expectations of those that provide us with the safety, trust, love and security we need. This is likely to be a parent or care provider, a teacher or an employer or a close friend or family member. As our journey in life goes on then these expectations may also come from ‘those who we look up to’ or ‘inspire us’ or they may include those we ‘have a relationship with’  or those that ‘impose a negative force over us’. We may also modify our expectations based on our own beliefs and our own expectations! When an individual has little self-belief; when someone has a belief system that has been imposed on them or indoctrinated into them; then it becomes part of their sub-conscious, and they revert to behaving and accommodating these beliefs without consciously being aware of it. This means we don’t always know that what we are doing is not of our own creative being – we just do it.

As we get older and ‘get on with a life that has been created for us’ then at some point, some people realise that what they are doing, or perhaps the way they are ‘obliged’ to do it (the way they have to do things to accommodate the system) is not what they want – because it does not feel right. If you have felt this way, or know someone that does, then read on . . .

You can change the system – you can be who and what you feel you should be!!

By having purpose (not so much in what you are doing) but in how you live can change everything in your life for the better.

What does this mean?

By having purpose in how you live is a key factor in what defines a well developed human being. Once you feel safe, feel trust, security and love then, and only then, can you activate the force that is within you to be the greatest version of yourself. You can behave on a conscious level that vibrates at a higher frequency. These frequencies start with courage.

Courage is what allows you to think for yourself and be positive and care about yourself and others. Courage means you do not have to conform to the weaker frequencies of others, perhaps those you have known all your life and perhaps those that surround you. You do not even have to ‘run away from them or hide’ you can simply be the new you.

The new you?!

The courageous you is the starting point for the you that will leave behind the feelings and behaviours of the past and embark on higher frequencies of the now and the future. These are shown below  (and include calibrations / testings by Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D; Don Beck – Spiral Dynamics and Marcus Pearson – the founder of VFP):

Levels-and-zones-of consciousness-and-emotions

When a human being is allowed to pursue a desire with creativity without any expectation imposed or felt then they are being their true self. To be your true self allows you to be creative and it allows you to experience ‘for yourself’ how you feel about what you have done without any concerns about what anyone else feels. You can then consider other opinions from a position of completeness rather than from expectant change.

Perhaps one of the most important considerations anyone should consider when embarking on a creative journey is the quality of any information you use or apply. Genuine creative thought is possibly the greatest choice. It may result in you later ‘validating’ what you have done from similar work done by someone else. When you really think on a creative basis it is very rewarding and you will fully understand and feel all that you are doing,

Thinking for yourself and acting on it is very liberating and can be applied to exercise and fitness as well as art, music and technology etc. As a starting point you could exercise and undertake exercise / fitness at the best time of day in line with your circaian and ultradian rhythms (full details in VFP#1). You could eat at the right time to suit your exercise  / fitness timings and you could  / should think about this all on your own – because nobody else is you!!

When you have the courage to do what is right for you then you may progress to further insights and benefit even more.

Insight Number 3:

The next insight is all about balance, in as much as a little bit of harm in the short term is good for you in the long term. Or put another way  – a lower dose stimulation of stress for the body and mind, will create a higher dose of inhibition against identical and similar stress.

EG: A little dose of corona virus may be a little uncomfortable for a short while; however, it is likely to create anti-bodies within your system that will inhibit you getting it again and getting a more harmful dose – thus preventing long term stress.

The key factor of this insight is to recognise that this balance is actually an in-balance in favour of what is good for you.

Balance in Life

VFP provides insights that allow you to make choices that you feel are the best balance.

The insights are detailed and can be found within each members category.

Insight Number 4:

It is essential to nurture positive close personal emotions / relationships with as many people as possible, via ‘eye contact, facial expression, voice, physical activity and like minded thoughts’ – so that coherent resonance abounds, AND so that ‘misattunements’ may be dealt with in a positive and caring manner. This will help activate the ‘parasympathetic nervous system’ (PNS) of both yourself and of the people you are with. Once the PNS is activated then more positive and creative emotions can be used for communication. Activation of the PNS also helps regulate the ‘sympathetic nervous system’ (SNS), and on a practical basis such progression facilitates positive states arousal and performance rather than negative and stressful states of activity.

To do something with someone else that has an underlying positive consciousness / emotion for everyone concerned (please refer to the infographics above) will bring greater rewards than doing something with an underlying negative consciousness / emotion. When you live in a positive conscious state with positive emotions then life is done with ease and you experience less disease. On a social and community basis such positive interaction will lead to higher harmonic resonance.

But there is more . . .

Interpersonal communication however, is not limited to that which our 5 senses experience. We also have energy fields that extend beyond our body (up to 30ft). These energy fields allow us to feel and interact with others without our ‘known senses’. VFP provides you with the insight that you can learn how to use additional senses that you perhaps don’t use much at the moment. These additional senses also activate the PNS as well as the PNS of the people around you.

Using The Quick Coherence Practice is one way to tune in to these other senses. When you practice Quick Coherence you will feel this extra sense for yourself. You will feel what it is like to connect with your inner spirit AND the inner spirit of those close to you.

Insight Number 5:

Love is quite simply that lovely feeling you experience when ‘what you do and what you feel’ are tuned in together. When people feel great it is when they tune in together. People may tune in on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level – and all of these individually will allow the positive emotions to be felt. When someone tunes in totally on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level then the tuning feeling will be magnified.

“To love and be loved is one of the greatest aspects of life – seek it, be it and give it”.

Marcus Pearson (Founder VFP)

You can tune in with someone whilst simply talking with them or whilst going for a walk with them. This tuning will be felt within you.

Love is a higher emotion, however it is just like all other emotions and is not a straight line – it is a spiral of vibrating frequencies – love can easily be mistaken for desire, and may also become guilt. Love may also spiral up to become joy, peace and enlightenment.

Emotional Tuning

How you do what you do is what determines your overall harmonic resonance (HR).
HR represents all the vibrating frequencies from your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being. By following the insights from VFP you can raise your vibrational frequency and be who you want to be.

Insight Number 6:

Once you have gained higher emotional intelligence (HEI) and raised your level of consciousness – what then? This next insight provides the answer –

Live with purpose and yet remain open minded by living in the present moment rather than the past or the future.

When you are experiencing a period of ‘higher waves’ in your life (this varies with everyone), then you are more likely to live more in the moment because what you feel within you and around you is at ease. This more easily allows you to live within this moment and you naturally spend less time thinking about the past or the future – you simply enjoy the now. This hopefully explains the ‘living in the now’ aspect’, however, the insight that VFP seeks to impart is that HEI (higher emotional intelligence) may only be achieved if what you are doing and how you do it have true and pure purpose. This is not meant to intrude or conflict with any positive feelings you may have, it is simply the truth that HEI comes from a “combination’ of being in the now with purpose”!

The Optimal Continuum Ratio

When you are experiencing a period of ‘lower waves’ in your life then you are more likely to live more in the past or future that in the moment because what you feel within you and around you is NOT at ease. you naturally spend less time thinking about the NEGATIVE CURRENT MOMENT and spend more time thinking about more positive times in the past or dreaming  / hoping about a more positive future – it is only the NOW that is going to influence the future – furthermore, the now actually exists and the future may not. So by making the now what you want then the future will become the now and life will be at ease again rather than be a life of disease.

“Give purpose to your now and this insight will sort out the future. Be at ease with your current situation and all else will tune in to your positivity”.

Insight Number 7:

This next insight totally relies on you being at a Higher Level of Intelligence because it requires you to nurture the insight from Number 6 in others.

Once you are at ease with your situation, then this means you have given positive purpose to the situation and thius will reactivate your PNS which will help you remain creative and positive. It will also let you access your sympathetic nervous system from a positive emotional state rather than a stressed state – and this will allow you to become focused and work hard without becoming tired and further stressed.

In a normal world you also share this situation with others such as family and friends – this insight is that you should nurture your combined situation into an agreed and mutual purpose. This is so POWERFUL it will sky rocket your level of consciousness and further raise your level of Emotional Intelligence – furthermore, it will raise the Emotional Intelligence of those who you are nurturing.

Once again the Quick Cohesion Practice will help you nurture this.

This is how to undertake the Quick Coherence Practice:


Insight Number 8:

Find an activity (yes something active for your physical body) that you can undertake by yourself and with a person close to you (it doesn’t matter if it is the same activity – just do it at the same time together).

Make this an activity that gives you pleasure. It may be a physical activity. It may be an activity that takes you to places that give you pleasure – but make sure the journey and mode of transport also give you pleasure (quite often the journey is more important that getting there).

Do this activity every day. Arrange your life so that this activity can be scheduled to fit in with your natural circadian and ultradian rhythms. So this insight is about scheduling positive activity and positive recovery into your life – click here for details.

Find out more about what hormones make you feel happy and nurture them with what you eat and drink and do.


Insight Number 9:

Consider The Optimal Continuum Ratio.

Insight Number 10:

Enjoy yourself every day!

Don’t wait until tomorrow or until week-end – don’t hesitate to enjoy any moment of any day to be happy.

When you laugh or smile either outwardly or inwardly then this positive energy is felt by everyone around you. It will make them feel good and it will make them want to be around you more. I will make your life better. Tell jokes and watch funny films or videos or music with friends and your loved ones.

Incorporate enjoyment into your purpose in life; incorporate enjoyment into your schedule and daily rhythms. Try to enjoy yourself with your close family and friends and everyone you have contact with.

That’s it – this is the end of the preparation phase:

The first full phase of 3 weeks is all about establishing an “attitude and being” that will support your natural circadian / ultradian rhythms and hormones. These patterns will be important for long term success and will make the whole undertaking enjoyable and one you want to share with others. DO NOT SKIP THIS STAGE – EVEN IF YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE.

During the second 3 week phase you will focus on a detailed and purposeful training routine – so if you have successfully completed the preparation phase – sign up here.

Some of the negative effects of Covid-19 include:

  • Struggling to deal with loss and / or feeling isolated or lonely..
  • Joint pain, loss of energy and weakness.
  • Feeling unsafe and not knowing why.
  • Confusion and frustration with not understanding what is going on.
  • A lack of trust with people, situations and places.
  • The lack of stucture and order and not knowing what to do with your time.
  • Brain fog - not being able to concentrate or think clearly.
  • Struggling to have longer conversations and discussions about positive and creative opportunities - and too much negative talk.
  • Couples and families stuggle interacting together due to a lack of personal and joint purpose in life.

The severe isolation measures imposed by governments have been traumatic to the psyche of people; to the extent, many have the fear of getting tests done and or divulging the results to authorities for fear of loss of income or further isolation. Others live every moment on the edge of media releases and feel totally reliant on vaccinations and guidance and rules on how to live.


Society has created a situation where many people have an overdependence on other people for guidance and regulations on how they live. This can be clearly seen with those people who have retired or are suddenly not working and do not know what to do with their time. For many people walking the dog, watching some form of day time TV and cooking, represent the limits of their activity. Their social interaction and discussions are based around such activity or in discussing the limitaions imposed on them and everyone else -

"very few people do something that is both creative and of benefit for themsleves and others; furthermore, they do not discuss the creative process for making this happen - they have lost (or never developed) this self-relience and love of life - they are lost within an 'auto-pilot' existence" -


When individals within a relationship or within a family, educational, work or team environment, lack any purpose in life or don't have any creative ideas to stimulate their emotions or thoughts, then they are more dependent on external forces to influence their behaviour. The majority of outside forces are negative, therfore most of the time people will be negative. Covid-19 is not the cause of this negativity - it highlights the hidden problems faced by most people and society.

This post provides a short practical instruction on how to conduct a quick coherence / QUICK CALMING/POSITIVITY PRACTICE:

The optimal times for doing this practice are:

  • first thing in the morning whilst still in bed (before getting up)
  • First thing when you get to work or school etc.
  • every 90 mins once you are active and the day has begun
  • when you get back in bed to settle for a sleep.

It is perfect when combined with other people (especially smaller groups) just before a meeting/lesson/meal.  It may even be used by a family group or a group of friends or work/school/college friends - perhaps in conjunction with an agreed 'positive statement/affirmation'.

Whilst it helps to reduce stress; with the 'the more advanced breathing progression' it is most beneficial in promoting a feeling of wellbeing and positivity; and in activating your parasympathetic nervous system (your feel good system). Once activated this may lead to positive stimulation that facilitates exceptional mental and physical performance, or, if you are relaxing, it will lower your heart rate, lower your brain frequency and promote better rest and natural sleep patterns. When a calm and positive state is maintained for longer and longer periods (with monitoring and practice) then it leads to 'flow' and extends the 'optimal arousal zone'.

Quick Coherence only takes 1 - 2 minutes (it is best done with your eyes closed):

Welcome - By following this short process you will feel calm, positive and energised. The process will work even better when you smile during the process and continue smiling after it has finished - let us begin - you may keep your eyes open or close them - do whatever helps you focus . . .

  • Focus your attention on your heart just to the left of centre in your chest. If it helps, place the fingers of your right hand over the heart so you can physically feel your heart beat - then relax.
  • As you breathe in, visualise the air going into your heart. As you visualise breathing in, count to between 4 and 7 and with each count visualise your heart expanding your belly. Continue doing this until you find your own natural timing. Once you have established your natural breathing in cycle move to step 3.
  • As you breath out and feel your belly go down, visualise either:
    • a special place that makes you feel good; or
    • visualise what you are doing that makes you feel so good;
    • and /or visualise a person or group of people that makes your love come out.
    • as you become more familiar with this, and as it becomes easier to do - focus on giving appreciation or gratitude to someone and allow your love to come out.
  • More advanced breathing progression - once you have become familiar with all of the above - then as you continue with the heart felt focus - PROLONG the breathing out stage, so it is between 3 and 5 seconds longer than your breathing in stage. Then continue this staggered breathing cycle for between 1 and 3 mins. This will physiologically activate your parasympathetic nervous system and stimulate creative and happy hormones.

Adopt quick coherence as a pattern of positive performance:

The quick coherence practice, including the more advanced breathing progression, may also be used in the build up to a high performance related activity - especially as a precursor for being in the flow zone. This is perfect for activities such as climbing or skill related performance or even high intense muscular activities such as arm wrestling, powerlifting, strongman event and surprisingly combat sports - because the more you can perceive stress as a positive opportunity, the greater you will maximise your optimal flow zone perform to your maximum potential. When stress is perceived as being negative, it increases anxiety, increases muscle tension, reduces reaction times and speed and reduces power. Negative stress leads to a quicker loss of energy and reduces mental clarity and sharpness.

Smile and be positive.

Group / team coherence:

Imagine the benefits to a team if you all acknowledged gratitude for one another prior to starting a more physical warm up or at the end of a warm just before you went out to compete. This would minimise stress and allow you to perform at even higher levels of intensity for much longer.  

When Phil Jackson began coaching the Chicago Bulls - and later the Los Angeles Lakers - he says he used the Zen philosophy of mindfulness to help build both teams.


Coherence practice is used by the NHS in Derbyshire:

Quick coherence may be used to overcome feelings of anxiety, stress and help calm you or someone else down when they are feeling their behaviour is becoming more challenging to others.


More scientific research on this is available at -

Monitoring and measuring coherence can be done using new technology and with the correct insights.

Elimination is the lowest level of consciousness and calibrates <20:

The strategy for getting yourself or someone else out of this stage is provided below:

The VFP strategy for achieving higher/more positive 'natural patterns / cycles of being' is to re-tune your mental and emotional energy fields, so they do the 'right things' on an automatic basis (using your autonomic nervous system), rather than a cognitive basis (having to think and feel if what you are doing is working).

This approach is more significant when dealing with those at the lowest levels of consciousness. Such individuals 

  • You must have natural cycles of imbalance in your life. These should be positive in maximising you as a physical being. Look at every situation as an opportunity!
  • You should maximise the functioning and capabilities of your physical body/mind.
  • You should maximise your individual creativity and find purpose in all that you do.
  • You should be your best and give yourself for the benefit of all.

When you do this you will find love will allowed to flow from you and you will attract it!

You can’t tune into Love when you have negative forces influencing you - 'love is felt through tuning in to the truth'.

Love is not felt when someone is holding you back and not caring for you as best they can.

You cannot hold other people responsible for their imperfections in respect of your relationship. You need to break negative cycles with people - this does not mean you have to stop being with them, or loving or caring for them; but it does mean you must take responsibility yourself for following more positive natural cycles. If you are not capable of allowing love to come out of yourself for your TRUE SPIRITUAL BEING then your imperfect physical being will dominate your life. You must learn to let love come out by turning negative thoughts and emotions into opportunities to help yourself and others.

You must stop feeling sorry for yourself and you must stop using others as an excuse.

You are not an 'imprisoned physical being' - you may feel like one, and may be treated like one - but you have the opportunity to change this.

When your mind thinks with moving pictures rather than thinks with words (self-talk), then the results/benefits are significantly better.

Mental imagery is a more intuitive process than an intellectual one. It allows you to influence and take control of your unconscious and subconscious; whereas self-talk and worded affirmations focus your influence within your conscious mind.

For most people the language of imagery is commonly experienced during REM sleep at night or whilst daydreaming. However, becoming aware of images whilst waking simply requires us to give it more focus than we currently do. Most people self-talk rather than self image!

Scientific research confirms the benefits of imagery for improving health:

Doctors prescribe pharmaceuticals that control the mind through the body; eg. tranquilizers, antidepressants and anaesthetics. In much the same way, we can use the mind to control the body - and imagery is far more effective at doing this than self talk. There are at least two major scientific journals devoted to imagery research; one from Marquette University (The Journal of Mental Imagery) and one from Yale University (Imagination, Cognition and Personality).

Mental imagery may be used as a process for reacting to experiences (negative or positive), however, it is more powerful when used as a way of 'creating new experiences'. After successive repetitions/cycles (21 days being a natural cycle time that changes behaviour) then the physical body attunes with the mind to make the mental imagery reality - THIS IS A PROVEN BENEFIT!

Within the VFP Digital Tuning Chart we have created audio links that explains how to use imagery to help create your own good health (this is an ongoing development).


HRV (Heart Rate Variability):

In terms of 'measuring SPIRITUAL BEING REALISATION' or 'SPIRITUAL COHERENCE' - it may be measured on a physical basis by HRV (Heart Rate Variability). However, what you have to realise is that SPIRITUAL COHERENCE extends beyond your physical being and HRV is therefore limited in its potential to measure the higher levels of consciousness. It would be reasonable to estimate that below the level of 200 HRV is low and not smooth. Peak HRV will start and continue at a level of approx 250. Above this level HRV will peak but it will not indicate your level of consciousness - this can be better estimated using the VFP Digital Tuning Chart.

The similarity between SPIRITUAL COHERENCE and HRV, is that HRV maintains 'high activity, smooth sine wave cycles' regardless of the heart rate or brain wave frequency (excitatory or inhibitory) - and SPIRITUAL COHERENCE maintains 'natural/balanced cycles of smooth waves - that can be excitatory or inhibitory' - so they are very similar to measure!

When SPIRITUAL COHERENCE occurs, on a physical basis, the heart and brain waves become more synchronised / tuned in to one another on an autonomic basis. The important aspect to measure is not whether the heart or brain frequencies are high or low - but that the 'HRV is high and smooth', thus showing a willingness and readiness for either positive/excitatory or negative/inhibitory states. Good coherence indicates a wide range of optimal flow zone frequencies (an ability to perceive stress as a positive challenge, rather than something negative to overcome).

Coherence and a good HRV are indicators of:

  • Positive relationships.
  • Creative initiatives between positive people.
  • Problem solving and group decision making.
  • Bonding and mutual support.

Quick coherence practice is only part of the VFP Tuning Protocol; By following the VFP retuning protocol you will reduce and prevent the negative effects of stress, fatigue and exhaustion, sleep disruption, anxiety and burnout - you will feel calm, positive and energised.

VFP uses the Inner Balance App in conjunction with the Bluetooth sensor from Heart Math to measure HRV. By recording your HRV before any interventions/therapy sessions, during the sessions and after the sessions we can better evaluate the impact of our VFP Protocol.
