TAYLOR HARTMAN: The Awakening Workshop
return to homepage


Taylor Hartman and his work is a great resource for;

Deciphering and understanding Personality Types,
and how they relate to one another.

Taylor Hartman is one of our favorite authors on the subject of personality types because his work appears to be pretty accurate and easy to interpret compared to the vast amount of information and differing opinions on the subject matter. His book titled The Color Code was the first book that my wife and I studied together when our awakening process first began and it had a huge impact on us!

Understanding personality types is one of the easiest ways to start becoming self-realized or self-aware. Through self-awareness, that is brought on by increasing consciousness, our lives have literally changed forever as we now primarily perceive and experience life without the influence and deception of the ego. This transformational spiritual journey began by understanding human behavior that Taylor Hartman jump started by pointing out the simplistic superficial differences that our personality types have and how they affect our lives.

In addition to our personality types, the individual will take on either an
Adult or Child Role that adds another dimension to the role they play in this production we call "Life". These attributes and traits make us more unique thereby giving us a broader view and experience of the human condition while providing balance between all of us.

The use and our description of Adult-Child Roles came about when Deniece and I discovered we couldn't explain the differences we continued to see between people within the same personality type. Some who study Human Behavior think Adult-Child Roles are simply an attribute that individuals can take on in a relationship or that we learn them during our childhood development along with cultural conditioning which can happen. However, I believe we are born with either the adult or child trait just like we are born with our own personality type. We put on these Roles like a shirt before incarnation and they remain with us throughout the rest of our lives coloring the way we operate in this world.

Taylor Hartman accurately portrays and describes the four main personality types in a simple to understand format and description. Then he color codes those types as Reds, Blues, Whites, and Yellows for easy reference.

In Taylor Hartman's book, he has you take a personality quiz to help determine what type your are, then he describes the four types in detail. If you read the book before taking the test, you will most likely get an inaccurate result because you will be influenced by the ego's desire to take on appealing attributes of the other personality types.
Ask yourself this question before studying human behavior, "Do I want to know the truth?". Asking this question will help keep you honest. Keep in mind this is not a "witch hunt", there are no wrong answers here. You are simply trying to discover the truth. No one is better or more important than another.

As you first begin the Awakening Process learning about Personalities is a very safe place to start because ultimately our personality types don't have much to do with our level of Consciousness, they merely color the way in which operate through life. However that being said, understanding the differences in our personalities is fundamental in understanding how we relate to each other and why each of us tends to value different things. Taylor Hartman does an excellent job in describing these unique traits.

Learning about the different personality types can be quite fun if done with another who is close to you such as a spouse or partner or even a close friend or partner. In addition, working with another helps both of you to be more accurate in deciphering personalities. Of course one must beware that the individual you are working with may start to be seen in a different light that can either be relationship strengthening or it may lead you to move on from the relationship. Taylor Hartman's book can help you understand how we all interact with each other.

Try to explore truth for truth's sake alone. In other words, try not to harshly judge others for their differences. We each have a different style about us and a different path to follow, depending on what we are here to learn and experience and only God and yourself know what that path is.

Our lives have a healthy balance when we incorporate the best qualities of all four personality types within us. Taylor Hartman describes this as being "charactered". Deniece and I describe this as being fully conscious or awakened.

Consciousness is our ultimate goal and the only thing that really matters in this life so along with learning about human behavior and personality types from Taylor Hartman it is important to understand that human behavior is only a small aspect of who we are. In fact, human behavior is not who we really are at all. Human behavior is merely a reflection of our level of consciousness and our understanding of our spiritual selves.

David R Hawkins is a leading authority on the subject matter of consciousness. Since consciousness is merely another term for awakened or enlightened this means his work is a fantastic resource for anyone who is interested in the pursuit of Universal Truth.

Through his work, he has created a scale of consciousness, which is a wonderful tool to measure and compare the consciousness level of anything on the planet.

His work in calibrating the levels of consciousness is done with the use of Kinesiology which bypasses the Mind and the Ego thereby giving results that are authentic, accurate and unbiased.

The results of his calibrations can be quite startling, yet if you are open minded and serious about seeing truth in all its forms, these calibrations can be quite enlightening.

The use of Kinesiology demonstrates how deceptive the ego can be. However, the truly exciting news is how simple using kinesiology (or muscle testing) is, to determine truth from falsehood.

We began our study of David Hawkins by reading his highly intellectual book
"Power vs. Force". I can honestly say that what lies within the cover of that book, truly changed my life. In this book he introduces the "Map of Consciousness" or "Scale of Consciousness". The profound importance of this "scale" becomes self evident once the chart is recognized and understood.

David R Hawkins has written many books covering various topics from
Kundalini energy to Alcoholics Anonymous, to areas of study such as
"A Course in Miracles", and much more. To help digest all of his material there are study groups that focus primarily on his work, but we recommend studying these three (Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, and David R Hawkins), and starting with Taylor Hartman as an introduction to self awareness.

Self awareness is pivotal in increasing your level of consciousness and Taylor Hartman's work will help you on your awakening journey by educating you in a non-judgemental, fact finding format.
