Being Aware of Being Aware

 Recently, someone asked me if ‘being aware of being aware’ is the only spiritual practice we need to focus on?

Yes, at a particular stage, it pretty much all comes down to this. The path becomes pretty simple and basic. It becomes a practice of ‘nonattachment’ from our desires. When we become aware of an attachment, we adjust to becoming nonattached. We pay attention when we need to change in some way to keep our self clean from any thought-forms which might snag or imprison us.

There might be times when an emotional issue or past wound will come to the surface, and we will be called to self examine or heal another layer from the past. After the issues are seen and worked on, we continue to be in awareness until there is something else to address. As we go, the emotional issues and wounds become less and less, and we become more joyful and free from incumbrances.

Because we have become freer, we might be given more knowledge into the workings of the universe. If so, we should humbly, take in the information, and work with it to expand our understanding while we stay in awareness. And at some point, staying in awareness will become second nature or who we are, and we won’t need to practice, to practice it anymore.

Seeing the Higher Dimensions

Recently someone asked me, “Why can’t we see the higher dimensions, but we can see the lower dimensions?”

I can only answer this from a spiritual perspective. At the moment, the teaching field of this Earth school is taking place primarily in the third dimension, so the vision of what our physical eyes can see is limited. Seeing the higher dimensions beyond this requires a different kind of vision than just our physical, third-dimensional eyes. Some of us can easily see the higher dimensions, while in this 3-D body because we have evolved our consciousness into the higher dimensions. The higher dimensions are more subtle and can often be overlooked and not seen at all by those who have yet to develop or have their third eye or 6th chakra completely open.

The 6th chakra is tied to the 6th dimension. The Earth consists of 13 dimensions. For us to see beyond what the physical, third-dimensional eyes can see, we need to see with the eyes of our spirit and soul or higher self. We need to use our connection to our higher self, residing in the higher dimensions to see. We naturally expand our vision by developing a conscious relationship with who we are in the higher dimensions. As beings, we will only ever able to see up to the level where our higher self resides.

Once we begin to awaken beyond the third-dimension, the part of us who has incarnated into the physical plane can be used to push the boundaries to help our higher self expand beyond their current dimensional awareness. This is why incarnation into the human body is so valuable. To have a human, with this potential, is powerful because we become our own pioneer and tool for new growth, and expansion to happen in the higher dimensions. This kind of growth is a push-pull event, whereby all the selves (soul, higher self and physical self), work as a team to grow our being.

Is it Mind or Higher Self Speaking?

Higher Self by Sheilan

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.

What Happens to Ego-Mind?

I was recently asked, “What happens to the ego-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.

The Pendulum Is A Great Tool

Léon Foucault: Rotation Of Earth Interactive Doodle by Google

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.

Who Am I As a Higher Being?

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.

Endless Levels to Enlightenment

I was recently asked “If there are endless levels to ‘Enlightenment’ what should we be calling the simple realization and acceptance that ‘All is Self’?”

In the past, I have read many enlightened being’s teachings and found altogether they grandly illustrate the varying levels of awakening or enlightenment. Why are there infinite levels of enlightenment? It is because creation exists in infinite dimensions within dimensions, within infinite universes. There is no end!

Our understanding of reality is tied to the dimension our consciousness exists in on the other side. We as humans can only be conscious/awake or enlightened to the dimension which our higher self (spirit self) has evolved into while in the higher dimensions. The chakras of our bodies are tied to all the earth’s dimensions.

The earth is a school of limited dimensions. While here on earth, one’s consciousness or awakening cannot exceed the 13th dimension. Not everyone will graduate from this Earth School in her highest dimensions. When some beings leave here they will go on to other planetary systems (schools) which have higher vibrations than what is available to the Earth.

For others to understand the whole of this answer, their being would need to have evolved into a dimensional understanding which is allowing of this knowledge. It is not the human self which evolves really, but rather, the higher self, spirit-self in the higher dimensions. Having this understanding is another level of enlightenment.

The level of enlightenment which has the understanding that “All is Self” would be the primary understanding of an awakened or enlightened being. One must understand, there are also levels of understanding within this primary understanding of Self. This is yet again, another example of infinite levels of enlightenment or understanding. There will never be a “one-shoe-fits-all” regarding consciousness. And admittedly, some enlightened experiences make it seem like there is the final understanding, until of course, another new level is realized.

While in this human body, we will never be able to identify or name the levels of consciousness, because levels of consciousness are relative. It is impossible to have a standard definition. The confusion around the topic helps with the learning and growing of our being at this 3rd-dimensional level.

I often use the word awakened and levels of awakening instead of the word enlightenment, as it seems to fit and it takes away the authority of the notion of enlightenment from old traditional, teachings, which many have outgrown. Sometimes I use words together like awakening/enlightenment to cover my basis when writing on the topic.  In the end we are using limited words of the third dimension to explain something which is indeed happening beyond the realm of the intellects understanding.
