I was recently guided to offer support for people to reconnect with their higher self. Let's break down what that means, why do people need to reconnect, what it does for us, and how we can do it.
What is Your Higher Self?
Everyone has a higher self, even if people choose to believe in this or not. Your higher self is wise, loving, beautiful, and perfect. Kimberly Thalken of Love First simply and eloquently describes what exactly your higher self is:
"Your higher-self is an aspect of your soul. It’s the purest aspect of your soul and YOU because it is not influenced by your experiences over lifetimes (karma)…"
No matter what you experience on this earth, during this lifetime, or in other lifetimes, your higher self is always pure, truthful, and unaffected. People desire a strong connection with their higher self to make navigating this human experience easier and more pleasant. The higher self is an abundant source of love and wisdom that is often untapped. It is not cheating at life to connect with your higher self, in fact, it is expected.
Why Do We Disconnect from Our Higher Selves?
We are never fully disconnected with our higher selves; it is our awareness this connection even exists that becomes weak. Many things can cause us to disconnect from our higher selves. Some of us coming into this lifetime may have been disconnected in a previous lifetime and are carrying that forward with us. The biggest culprit of this disconnect is programming and beliefs.
Some societies lead us to believe concepts of spirituality and universal connection are fantasy and nonsense. Society also detours a universal connection through societal norms that life looks like this: be born, go to school, get a job, get married, have kids, and die. Tremendous value has been placed on the strength of our education and the size of our salaries, above and beyond our divine gifts and connection with universal energy.
Another deterrent is entertainment, media, and advertisements. While some of this is high vibrating and nurtures our minds, bodies, and spirits, much of it is a waste and a distraction to our life’s purpose.
Don’t feel bad if any of that applies to you- it almost literally applies to us all! There is nothing wrong with being entertained or having typical priorities. You can have those things and have a spiritual connection at the same time. You really can have it all. This is just to help you be mindful of how our universal awareness can be weakened.
Who Should Connect with Their Higher Self?
While some people do come into their earthly experience fully connected to their higher self, most do not. It is often through challenges and life lessons that humans unknowingly yearn for that connection do they begin to find it.
Higher self connections aren’t reserved for purely enlightened ones, they are available to all. We don’t have to wait for times of struggle or difficulty to tap into our higher selves, but it is often through times we feel led to do so.
When you are connected with your higher self you
Have a stronger intuition.
Have better discernment between what you need and what you don’t.
Understand which options and choices are best for you.
Feel balanced and spiritually grounded.
Embrace your authenticity.
Shine your light as you came here to do.
You will be able to trust your instincts better because you will be able to feel how the energy of people, places, things, opportunities, and choices will interact with your own energy. You will also understand when your intuition is communicating with you.
I used to think (and hope) messages from my intuition would show up as big neon signs and completely obvious. That might be the case for you, but not for me. My intuitive knowledge just pops in, creeps in really, like it has always been there.
Discernment between Needs
Do you need to take on that project to add extra stress to your life? Do you need to hang on to those mementos from the past? Do you need this kind of relationship? You will have better discernment between what is serving you and what is not so you can know when it’s time to let go.
I always had difficulty letting go of objects, hanging on to things I never used. I’ve learned I don’t need to hang on to some things because of sentimental value, I can choose a few select things to keep instead. Besides, hanging on to things we have no use for is simply clutter and takes up valuable space for something else we need or desire instead.
Understand What’s Best for You
From simple question like should I eat that for lunch to bigger decisions like should I take that job, you know which options will be best for you, even if it means a temporarily difficult road up ahead.
I used to practically need a focus group every time I made a decision, big or small. While I still value the opinions of others, I’ve become much more independent in my decision-making.
Feel Balanced and Spiritually Grounded
So many people are operating from the perspective of waiting for the other shoe to drop. Some don’t know whether they’re coming or going. It’s chaotic! Connecting with your higher self undoubtedly increases your feelings of balance and being grounded. It doesn’t mean you aren’t busy or disorganized, but balance and grounding provide you stability, clarity, and flexibility. Through balance and grounding, you also experience more even emotions versus extreme emotions. Yes, you can still feel anger, guilt, or frustration, but those feelings pass more easily and safely because your grounded nature allows you to do so.
Embrace Your Authenticity
You know who you are. You understand your gifts. You can unapologetically be you. It can be scary to let people see the real you, which typically stems for fear of rejection. But when you are connected with your higher self, you understand that it is your authenticity that draws the people you need in your life to you.
I do want to note that being authentic doesn’t mean baring all your secrets or challenges or airing your dirty laundry for all to see. You can still be authentic and selective of what you share at the same time. Some things just are not everybody else’s business.
Shine Your Light
What amazing things did you come here to do? You came here with a divine gift, will you share it? When you are connected with your higher self, you will be guided to carry out your divine work here on earth.
I was 31 years old when I discovered my divine gift. It was through terrible struggles and circumstances that led to my discovery. Those things are in the past and I have worked to heal that part of my life, but also can see that had I not gone through that, I would have never learned what I was supposed to be doing here. For that, I choose to graciously shine my light by supporting others through energy healing.
