“When you contact the Higher Self; the source of power within, you tap into a reservoir of infinite power.” – Deepak Chopra
All of us are born with a Higher Self, a part of us that is separate from the body and ego. Our Higher Self is rooted in love, and its an energy that has always been, and always will be, part of the universe.
When we tap into this part of ourselves, we can intuitively receive the guidance, wisdom, and answers we are seeking.
Here are 5 ways you can connect with and receive guidance from your Higher Self:
Meditation is an ancient practice that has been used for thousands of years as a way to quiet the mind, become aware of the present moment, and realign with the Higher Self.
It brings about clarity, awareness, and focus thereby allowing you to let go of any mental blocks, and reconnect with yourself.
If you don’t know where to begin, here’s a step-by-step guide for beginners.
Use meditation to connect with your Higher Self by setting an intention before each meditation session. For example, ask for clarity on a specific issue, or ask a question.
The guidance or answer may come in the form of an image, feeling, thought, idea or knowing.
2.) Free Write
When it comes to connecting with your Higher Self, freewriting allows you to relinquish control, open up and let thoughts, feelings, ideas, and answers to flow without interruption.
To get started, go somewhere quiet and spend 10 or more minutes writing whatever thoughts and ideas come to you. Don’t worry about grammar or formatting as you do this, you can always go back later and make adjustments. The key is to immerse with your internal self and record the messages it has for you.
Then once you finish, read through what you wrote and see what messages are being relayed to you.
3.) Go Within
If you lost your car keys inside of your car, you wouldn’t look for them outside of your car, would you?
This might seem like a silly analogy, but when it comes to our Higher Selves, it’s what most of us do. We look for truth, purpose, clarity, and fulfillment externally.
But, you can’t find your Higher Self by looking and seeking outside of your essence — you have to go within which will allow you to get in touch with your true divinity.
You might be asking yourself, “How do I go within?” And the answer is far less complex than many people think — you go within simply by bringing your focus into your inner world rather than the outer world.
Sitting in silence, closing your eyes, meditating, becoming aware of the moment and your thoughts, listening to your breathing, etc. These are all ways you can go within to connect with your Higher Self.
4.) Spend Time in Nature
In today’s world, it’s easy to disconnect from nature and become so ingrained in the day-to-day grind that you forget the essence of who you are, and why you’re here.
>Part of being a spiritual being incarnated into a human body means you are meant to experience the natural world, alongside the countless other species that inhabit this plant.
One of the best ways to “remember” this part of yourself is to spend time immersing yourself in the natural world.
When you’re out in the natural world, use your senses to become aware of what you’re experiencing. Listen. See. Feel. Taste. Touch. Not just with your physical senses, but also with your intuitive senses.
5.) Use Gratitude
Quantum physics tells us like energy attracts like energy, and because all of us and everything in this world is made up of energy, that means everything is in a constant state of attraction — including us.
By giving thanks for everything you have, including this moment right here, you’ll attract more things in your life to be thankful for and will also raise your vibration.
Start each day by saying “thank you” and enjoy the newfound happiness and joy you experience as you go throughout each day. Doing this will allow you to connect with your Higher Self — which vibrates at the highest possible frequency — and receive the guidance you’re seeking.
All of the answers you’re seeking can be found within, and you can access them anytime by getting in touch with your Higher Self. Use these 5 suggestions to stay connected, and to receive the guidance and clarity you’re seeking.
