What Is Your Higher Self? (How To Connect to Your Higher Self)

In the realm of spirituality, the concept of the Higher Self is a topic of great interest. But what is your Higher Self, what can it tell you, and why does it matter? In this article, we will explore the characteristics of the Higher Self, the benefits of connecting with it, and practical methods to strengthen this profound connection, fostering self-discovery and spiritual alignment.

What Is Your Higher Self?

There is a lot of talk about the Higher Self in spiritual communities. It’s a common buzzword. And for those unsure of what the Higher Self is, it’s kind of hard to ask because the heftier egos that reside within many spiritual communities may make us feel deflated or ignorant on such an important topic. First, you are your soul. Our soul encompasses our Higher Self.  It is an aspect of who we are, and we are multidimensional beings that are extraordinarily dynamic.

In a nutshell, our Higher Self is the wise, light, and love-driven aspect of ourselves that can guide and assist us while we are living this mortal life. The Higher Self is also the rational and logical aspect of us that can give us guidance without being clouded by our emotions or knee-jerk reactions to difficult situations.

Characteristics of the Higher Self

Some characteristics of our Higher Self include a sense of calm and compassion. Our Higher Self knows and understands we are living a mortal life for the experiences our soul needs. Our Higher Self also has a sense of kindness and patience with us. It doesn’t overreact to our decisions, and our Higher Self is there to help keep us on track as best as possible. Our Higher Self is in harmony with us and the Universe.

What Are the Benefits of Connecting to Your Higher Self?

There are many benefits to connecting with your Higher Self, such as the ability to overcome negative self-talk and negative patterns in life. When we can focus and connect with our Higher Self, we find clarity, balance, and abundance as we move forward in our mortal lives.

One of the most important aspects is that by connecting to our Higher Self, it helps us to lead our life with wisdom and discernment, which helps us grow on our spiritual path.

When we are well connected to our Higher Self, we will feel less anxiety, fewer negative and harmful thoughts, and it will connect us directly to GodSource energy.

Self-Discovery and Personal Growth

We need to learn to pay attention. It’s that simple. But in our modern times, we are constantly inundated with all sorts of distractions, and our time seems more limited than ever. I urge everyone to take some quiet time for themselves to get centered and aligned. It can be hard to carve out those pockets of time, but just remember even five minutes is helpful.

Spiritual Guidance and Alignment

When we connect with our Higher Self, we are open to receiving Divine guidance that puts our soul into alignment with the universe. We may be better able to see and sense the world around us with enhanced wisdom, make better choices, and we may find our relationships are smoother.

How to Connect with Your Higher Self

The ability to connect to your Higher Self is a spiritual practice, meaning we need to practice and learn. The ability to connect with our Higher Self on a deeper level requires us to learn to trust and develop spiritual intuition.

Our intuition is our most profound psychic ability.

Contrary to popular belief, it’s not seeing dead people. When we focus on our intuition, it means we are directly connecting to the Higher Self. Our intuition is what keeps us safe on many levels.

Many of us have had to relearn how to develop our intuition from when we were children. This is part of the spiritual challenges many of us face, how to enhance our intuitive abilities. 

It’s crucial to know that when we connect to our Higher Self, we never need tools of divination, such as cards. The reason is this is a form of spiritual bypassing that often creates avenues for dark entities to pose or superimpose over your Higher Self and lead you in a less-than-desirable direction.

Know that you have the power within you and trust yourself in this process. It’s important that you own your soul and you do not hand off your power to any form of divination tool.

Meditation and Mindfulness

The ability to slow down our thoughts allows us to listen to that inner voice, the one that carries with it the wisdom that guides us. Many times, the thought of doing meditation seems overwhelming. We have heard about people who spend hours on end sitting in a lotus position on top of a mountain in deep meditation.

The reality is all we need are a few moments of quiet and solitude. Maybe it’s in your car on a lunch break. Or maybe, upon waking in the morning, instead of hustling out of bed to start the day, give yourself the gift of 10 minutes to simply focus and be mindful of being in those moments.

Plan out how you want your day to go. It doesn’t have to take long. Mindfulness is simply allowing yourself to be in the moment.

These are both spiritual practices, meaning we get to practice over and over. After all, there is no learning in perfection. 

Journaling and Self-Reflection

Any form of journaling, whether it is contemplative, asking questions, or seeking information is helpful as it is a form of self-reflection. This helps us to create a stronger connection to our Higher Self. Date your journaling experiences so that you can go back and reread what you have written, and chances are you will be pleasantly surprised with the information you have been writing.

Take some time and look back at your life; what went well, and what were some of your struggles? What did you learn in those moments? This is what our Higher Self desires for us- soul growth.

Intuitive Practices and Energy Work 

There are many types of intuitive practices that we can employ to help us develop our intuition. Look at these practices as a type of game. Get three note cards and write one word on each one. Mix them up and start to work on feeling the energy of the words on those cards and pick up the card with the word you are thinking about.

This is also a form of energy work as you are feeling the energy elicited by those words.

Another practice is to lie down and spend time sensing your body. Wiggle your toes and work your way up your body. 

This puts you in tune with your body, which houses your soul, deepening your connections. 

Why Strengthening Your Connection with Your Higher Self Is Crucial

When we strengthen our connections to the Higher Self, we strengthen our connections to the Divine, to GodSource energies. 

Connecting With Your Higher Self Is a Powerful Form of Self-Care

The most powerful form of self-care is the ability to connect with our Higher Self. As we do this, it unites our soul, making it stronger, and your soul is worth you investing in your Higher Self.

Ultimately, understanding and connecting with your Higher Self can lead to personal growth and a deeper spiritual journey. Hopefully, this article has provided you with some answers to the question of what is your higher self & why does it matter?
