Recently, I was asked by someone, “how will I know if it is my mind or my higher self speaking or telling me to do something?
This requires us to dig deep and investigate, study, and practice observation of our self for a long time. Then, over time, we begin to tune into the frequency of our higher self more quickly, and we just sort of know we are dialed in. This is why meditation has become so popular because it helps us to become quiet and more aware of our higher self and our ego. Higher self’s guidance is a little more subtle than our intellect/mind. It is our intuition and gut feelings, whereas the ego’s vibration is more dense and irritating, judgmental, and attached.
It can be tricky and confusing if we are already listening to our higher self, but we doubt what the guidance is, or when we hear the voice of the ego louder because we have an attachment to what we want the outcome to be. Often, we are attached without realizing we are biased in some way, to the issue.
When I have uncertainty around something, I consciously practice non-attachment so that when I ask higher self my questions around what to do, I can feel, hear, know the answer with greater clarity. We can ask our questions as many times as we need and in many different ways until we are sure we have received the intended answer.
When we practice listening and following the voice of our higher self, we support the awakened awareness of our higher self becoming louder within our being.
I wasrecently asked, “What happens to theego-mind when one transforms into their higher self?”
As we grow to become more of our higher self, our ego-mind becomes diminished. It is still present. However, our higher self overshadows it, while it exists in the background of our being. The ego-mind is no longer who and what we identify as or who we answer to. We now take all of our guidance and cues from our higher self.
When we invite our higher self into our being, we have made a declaration to our being, at some level, that this life belongs to the higher self. We have the recognition that our life is an instrument for our higher self to use… it is the higher self’s life. When we reinforce this sincere choice over and over, the power the ego has in our life is gone. This takes place over time, within stages of awareness, as we come into a broader understanding of Reality and who and what we are.
I was recently asked the question: “I just got a spiritual pendulum, do you have any tips on how I can improve my spirituality?”
The pendulum can be an excellent tool. Don’t listen to the naysayers. If you work and practice with it, it can help you to deepen your relationship with your higher self and can teach you to become more intuitive or psychic. It can also help you with your health. You must be clear and precise with your questions, and who you are asking otherwise you will get wishy-washy results. If you don’t name who you are asking, any unenlightened, out-of-body being can answer. This is not good. Realizing this is what made a big difference for me in getting accurate answers years ago.
If you want to deepen your relationship with your higher self, ask your higher self your questions, and practice listening for the answers as your pendulum is being moved. Your higher self can pretty much answer anything you would want to know. If you want to know about your health, diet, and body, ask your body for the answers. Your body is smart and can guide you on how to take better care of it… like what foods it wants to eat to stay healthy.
When asking questions, in order to get precise information, we must be neutural and nonattached to the answers. If we are biased so will be the answer. Our questions must be precise. This goes for all guidance tools one might be use.
I recommend finding pendulum charts online or in a book or makeing your own. Books can give you many good ideas about how you can use your pendulum. Just know that it takes a little time and effort for this tool of communication to be developed into something useful. However, once you have it, you will be a fan for life.
I was recently asked “How do I know my type of soul or how advanced my soul is? How do I find out who I am as a higher being?”
These are good things to wonder about. It might take us a long time to find the answers to this information depending on how connected we are to our higher self and how much understanding we have about reality. Our higher self holds the answers to these questions. Other people who channel beings from the other side can give us insights into our being, but sometimes this information is tainted because they themselves, or who they channel, might not be evolved enough to get the information without distortions of their consciousness.
Part of why this information is meaningful is because the process of getting it for our self can be enriching and can broaden our understanding of reality and how creation works. Sometimes the answers won’t come until we have more understanding of such things… they feed each other. It is a bit of puzzle that we need to put together piece by piece for ourselves. And there is nothing more empowering than having clear communication with our higher self. To be able to live our life with such a connection to Self and to get clear guidance is such a joy.
How I began was, I started connecting with my higher self in meditation and then through journaling and asking questions. I made it clear I was not interested in channeling anyone else but my higher self. It is easy to channel other beings but harder to communicate with one’s higher self. Channeled information from others can sometimes help us to know about our Self. However, I often found the channelings from other beings to be somewhat hit and miss and often came with many distortions. Later on my path, I knew I wanted only the help and information from my own being. I practiced for years and years until now I can ask questions and hear and feel the answers or I can write what I hear if something more lengthy is being conveyed. I am in constant communication with my higher self throughout the day.
Higher self is our intuition and also sends us messages through our feelings and dreams. If I were pondering the answers to something in particular my higher self would often speak to me while I was in the shower. This is probably because I was more open to hearing… going for a walk in nature would have a similar effect. In order to understand where our being is in the order of things, one needs to understand both the order of things and about their own being… these things go hand in hand.
I was recently asked: “If we are higher beings in a temporary incarnation, why is it necessary to incarnate to learn lessons instead of learning them in our higher form?”
All 13 of the dimensions of the earth are part of this earth school. We always have the opportunity to learn and grow. There are some beings in service to this school, as some of the angelics, who have very few incarnations. On the other side, part of the focus is to be of service to others in all the various ways and to help those who have incarnated with their lessons. In order to be really good at helping those who have incarnated, we need to incarnate, so that we have a better understanding of what it is like to be limited by our physicality and by time and to deal with such things as emotions and karma. In the higher dimensions, we also take classes and study various subjects, but at some point, we need to put all our higher dimensional learning to the test by incarnating into physicality.
So we incarnate to test ourselves… we need the denser, 3-D to grow because it is more intense and faster than just growing on the other side in the higher dimensions. The lessons available at this level are more varied, dramatic and extreme. We can explore and experience lessons in physicality which isn’t available in the higher dimensions. Because of the 3-D body’s emotions, we can feel everything more deeply. We can explore all kinds of themes and story lines. We can change our gender and make use of the karmic system, which isn’t available in the higher dimensions.
A handful of higher dimensional beings at the school, are from previous universes and are not required to incarnate into the 3-D unless they want to. They may choose to incarnate and play the role of a major teacher in one of the themes and then follow up and guide their teachings from the other side. The majority of the beings at this school are from this current universe and are required to incarnate to get a full rounded education in order to graduate and leave the school. There are other schools in the universe that are based in the higher dimensions and much less intense than earth.
Unconsciousness means a being is asleep or unaware of who and what they are beyond their limited consciousness of the third, fourth and fifth dimensions. It means the spirit being or higher self of a human has yet to either evolve into the higher dimensions or the human part of themselves has yet to awaken to the dimensions of who they are on the other side.
And an unconscious being does not yet have the understanding of what existence is. Someone who is unconscious usually believes or identifies with who they are as an ego rather than who they are as a spirit being in the higher dimensions. Instead of being guided by their intuition from their higher self they are pulled around by their egos. Just like there are degrees to being enlightened there are degrees of being unconscious. Both reflect the spectrum of light all beings exist in but are at opposite ends.
Earth is a school designed to bring more awareness to the unconscious parts of our being. When our consciousness is awake, we are aware we exist in dimensions beyond the physical body. We understand we are one energy, connected by our souls and everything we see is part of this same energy. We understand this life is but a dream and there are infinite more lives to be lived by us on this planet and other planets and we know the journey of becoming conscious is a never-ending journey through the cosmos.
I have experienced many stages of awakening all throughout my adult life.
My first awakening happened in my early twenties, in 1974, after sincerely telling the universe I wanted to know more. This started me on my spiritual path. I progressed on my path pretty normally up until the last 20 years when life became very intense and hard. The deepest shifts in my spiritual awakenings were during this time precipitated from illnesses, hardships, and tragedies. These were the methods my soul/Higher self chose for me to go through to ascend and to strip away my ego. It is absolutely true what doesn’t kill us will make us stronger.
The very short version of my awakening story is: I have a virus in my body which made it difficult for me to work normally to earn a living because I don’t have enough energy. This forced me into surrendering into a new lifestyle that gave me more time to ponder reality then what most people are able to do. And because of the virus and not being able to work, there was a lengthy period in my life when I was close to becoming homeless. And during this time of devastating hardship, my longtime soul mate suddenly became ill and died. After his death and over the months that followed, I completely let go of everything in the material world I had been holding on to.
This was all happening during the first stage of the crisis in the Middle East when so many beings were going through intense hardships. This made what i was going through seem like peanuts. This gave me an important perspective and I became grateful for the smallest things in my life. Also during this time, I pushed the envelope to develop a deep relationship with my higher self and to ask really deep questions about reality. It was an ultra-intense time for me to study and gain higher Knowledge. I had a deep thirst to know the things others would say “there is no way to know such things while in the human form”. No one had the undistorted information which I wanted to know, so it was up to me to find out for myself and so I did. This raised my vibration even more.
Since my ascension and awakening into the highest of dimensions, I have been given a secure place to live and a small inheritance and live a simple peaceful life. I am very grateful indeed.
