Your Higher Self
One can attain salvation by comprehending the true self. - Deepak Chopra
Your Higher Self is the highest aspect of you that can be attained and held in the physical body. It is the part of you that knows, sees, and understands at the highest level possible, while the physical part of you continues to move around in the third dimension (Earth). Anchoring the wisdom of the Higher Self into your physicality is very much a part of our human spiritual evolution and purpose.
Your Higher Self is who you truly are – an absolute manifestation of your soul consciousness – while yourself on Earth is simply a projection of your Higher Self. Your Higher Self remembers all of your past lives, all of your past soul contracts as well as your current one, and is basically a more complete version of your self on Earth.
Your Higher Self has the job to keep you on track to accomplish whatever you agreed to do when you were born. The Higher Self can steer you in the right direction and work with your chosen guides to help you follow your life path, and when you take a wrong turn, they are there to help put you back on your path of awareness and soul alignment.
Your Soul, on the other hand, had an enormous role in deciding upon and designing what you experience in this lifetime. Your Soul wanted to experience a certain set of experiences so it put in place a plan and process where it could - through you.
In the process of these wonderful experiences your Soul created for you, you always have free will. And so you go about choosing and creating many other components of this life-game that are in addition to what the Soul’s desires have been.
This amazing time of Shift is adding to how you experience both your Higher Self and your Soul. As you begin to remember yourself and return to higher levels of consciousness, aspects of you and the Higher Self are going to merge very rapidly. As you begin to experience yourself as the merged Higher Self, greater levels of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding that the Higher Self IS who you are.
Simultaneously, your Soul plays an enormous role in all that is. Your Soul plays much more in the non-physical realm of consciousness which is enormously larger than the physical. It’s as if the concept and reality of physical is a grain of sand on a beach. Everything else is non-physical. But we humans only know what we know, so obviously physicality is the whole universe.
As you complete the agreements you made with your Soul, the veils between you and the Soul become thinner and transparent. Soon you and your Soul are one and the creation process becomes vast and beyond third dimensional limitations.
As you intentionally awaken and merge with your Higher Self and Soul during this Shift, you are doing something that has never been done before. Massive attention focused upon personal evolution to become fully aware of the consciousness of the Soul as it plays out in the physical. You also begin to build a bridge back to the heart of Creator. This bridge is referred to in various texts as the “Monad.” The Monad is the bridging element of the Soul that has conscious awareness in the non-physical.
You are in the process, as you go through these evolutionary steps, of becoming one with the Higher Self, as well as becoming one with the physicalness of the Soul. You also are beginning to access the Monad and the non-physical universe; the Mother/Father Creator.
This is a new adventure, new territory. You are big and significant. You are important.
How can I be more connected to my Higher Self?
Connecting to your Higher Self means living your Spirit. Here are a few ways to connect or align with your Higher Self:
You came here to be incarnated in the physical and to keep a connection to your Spirit intact. You want to keep a connection to your Higher Self because that’s the part of you which knows where to go and, what to take on the journey and what to do to get there.
Living your Spirit means remembering that you are God energy or Source energy in a physical body and the Creator of your world. The power inside you to create your world is the same power that creates worlds. You can utilize that power to create the world you want.
You don’t need to contact your Higher self as an entity outside of you – it is you! And you don’t need to get an intuitive reading in order to contact your Higher Self (although you can if you’re particularly alienated and don’t know where you’re headed or what you want). The wisdom is inside of you, if you will access it.
Listen to your desires. Above all, pay attention to your desires. Your truest, heartfelt desires are feedback from your Higher Self about what you want to do now.
Living from your Higher Self means not sacrificing or ignoring those desires. It also means listening to those desires on a daily basis.
(I manage my day by asking myself ‘what do I really want to do now?’. You might think that asking myself means that the stuff I don’t want to do never gets done but, it’s not the case. I regularly become inspired to overcome the challenges and the difficult tasks also, when the time is right, or I bring in someone to help me. I take my desires as feedback about the direction I want to go. And, when I remember to do it, it allows me to live in an inspired state of be-ing).
Meditate and quiet your mind.
The quickest way to practice accessing your truest self is meditation. It quietens the mind and the chatter which tells you who you are and what you can and can’t do and be and takes you straight to the quiet and calm which is your Higher Self. Start meditating by just focusing on your breath.
Most people who need healing don’t necessarily know what they need – they just know that they feel bad. So what can you do if you mostly feel bad? What if you don’t know what to do to heal that? You can just put out the intention to be as aligned as possible with your Higher Self. Or, you may just temporarily be out of Soul Alignment. There are times when we all lose our way and veer off our path, we need to re-align our internal compass and get back to our soul journey.
Putting out that intention will put you on a healing journey back towards who you are. If you have the energy to be proactive, make it your work to clear away anything which is not aligned with who you really are.
The clutter I’m referring to includes unhelpful beliefs such as ‘I’m not good enough’, any past associations or events which cause you to feel bad, and any traumas.
If you are still feeling out of alignment, please find a qualified, healing therapist to assist with your transformational journey.
