How to connect to your Higher Self
Many people have started going through a mass spiritual awakening. Starting to question all they've been taught, the way they have been orchestrating their lives, and a total unravelling of self.
Collectively we have forgotten our true power and our connection to the universe. The Higher Self is a more evolved version of yourself, the truest form of our being. By shedding old energies and tapping into the unlimited power of the human spirit, we can welcome in our Higher Selves with open arms.
Even in these chaotic times, you have a choice -no matter what your circumstances. Even if your thoughts and feelings have been hijacked by the tumultuous state of the world, you can feel better, live as your best self, and bring more of what you desire into your life.
We all have the innate capacity to live at a higher vibration, attuned to our intuition and the healing energy that is all around us, including our soul’s eternal energy and our natural connection to the guides and helpers in other realms.
Life gets more fun and inspiring once we start connecting to our higher self. You’ll start to notice yourself become more creative and focused on particular goals. You will become more open-minded, and reconsider things you once thought you could never have done; starting up a business, writing a book, traveling, building your own home and so forth.
Here are Some Ways to Connect to your Higher Self
What am I good at, and how can my skills and talents benefit the lives of others? You may find that you are discontent with your life situation. Most people are, and not everybody will have the opportunity or courage to live the life of their dreams. But everybody has a chance to try, and NOBODY has an excuse not to follow that little voice inside of them that is pulling them towards what they truly desire.
Take a moment to ask yourself these questions:
- What am I good at, and how can my skills/talents benefit the lives of others?
- What am I passionate about?
- What REALLY interests me?
If you notice the answer to these questions yet don’t follow up with them, your Higher Self will attempt to snap you out of it in several different ways.
Finding Your Tribe
Connecting with your Higher Self means attracting relationships into your life that reflect this, and dropping those that no longer serve your best interests. If people start to fall out of your life, don’t feel guilty or sad – this just means you’ve increased your vibration and must leave behind those that drag you down. Everyone walks their own path, and just because they no longer resonate with you does not make them a bad person, it just means they too need to find others who share their vibration.
Members of your tribe come in many ways, such as starting something new that you are drawn to and visiting places you would not normally looking for synchronicities and signs -- this is your soul guiding you.
You may notice that there are some coincidences that are happening in your life that just can't be attributed to chance. Looking at the clock and seeing numbers repeat over and over is a very common synchronicity people experience as they begin to get in touch with the deeper aspects of themselves. This is a sign that you are on the right track:
- Maybe your friend calls you right after you were thinking about them
- You get a new job opportunity right when you were thinking about quitting your job
- You overhear a conversation in passing that answers a question you were wondering about
- You take a different route to work or an event and later find out there was a reason
You begin to see signs everywhere and notice how the world is always speaking to you via nature, music, incidents, signs and symbols. The more that we notice these synchronicities, the more they occur in our field of awareness. You may also notice that these signs begin to show up in a faster amount of time between one event and another.
Spend time in Nature
Get outside and observe, connect and feel:
- Look at the tree tops, notice how the breeze or wind moves them and see if you can spot any birds
- Look at the clouds and notice the wind direction, the colours of the clouds and the lights and darks
- Touch something in natural, like a smooth stone or a plant, noticing its texture, colour and temperature.
One of the best ways to get in touch with your heart centre and find inner peace is through yoga. Practicing yoga regularly allows you to maintain a clearer mental state in order to continue your personal development in your everyday life.
Yoga isn’t guaranteed to result in a spiritual awakening however it can be used as a tool to connect you with your spiritual self. It doesn't have to be hard core, instead try restorative yoga like Yin, which activates the para sympathetic nervous system and has a calming effect on our body and mind. If yoga isn't for you why not try Tai Chi, dance or some sort of exercise class -- whatever floats your boat!
If you want to create a soothing soundscape try listening to our nature sounds of wind, water, rain or birds. Listening to nature sounds like these help to shift the brain from the stressed-out fight-or-flight status to calm parasympathetic mode. This will help to decrease your heart rate and blood pressure and lead to better sleep.
Meditate and Quieten Your Mind
Take a moment to mediate with us:
Close your eyes, take three deep breaths inhaling all the way up to the crown of your head, connecting with all that is and exhale right down through your body to your root chakra and Mother Earth.
Then take your awareness into your heart chakra and ask your higher self any questions that you need an answer to and wait for a response. Noticing any feelings or sensations in the body or just be still and listen for what your inner guidance needs you to know. Allow space and expansion and TRUST. When you feel you have received what you need to know, again take three deep breaths and gently open your eyes.
After you have done the mediation and as you go about your day take time to notice any signs, symbols or conversations that you may overhear and lead you to an answer to your question. It may be a pathway or an intuition or inclination to visit a certain place or engage in an activity you are drawn to or you may feel called to turn right instead of left, and watch the beauty that comes from it.
There are a million possibilities. Trust your intuition to knows what it is for your best and highest good. I invite you to listen to your Higher Self in your Heart and follow your intuition and TRUST that it will take you where you need to be and go.
