Higher Self Communication
You may read hundreds of books and listen to many people but the heartfelt thoughts and truly inspiring ideas are the product of your mind communication with the higher self. Some call it intuition, other a gut feeling, it’s guidance from within.
Your Higher Self is the real you. Is you that is unlimited and eternal. It’s the part of you that excites you with inspiration, guides you with intuition, and teaches you through insight.
The feelings you have about yourself are referred to as self-esteem. They can be positive feelings (high self-esteem) or negative feelings (low self-esteem). Such feelings are the product of our inner dialog and are determined by many factors, like how well we view our own performance and appearance, and how satisfied we are with our relationships with other people.
The ability to balance the cognitive and the affective features of the self helps to create realistic views of yourself and to translate these into more efficient and effective behaviors. To keep such balance you want to be able to accept your negative aspects and to work to overcome them.
We are here in this physical state, and part of that includes a feeling of separation from everything else. In reality, there is no separation. The physical you can’t be separated from the energetic consciousness-you.
So, where does the energy of you Begin and End?
Higher consciousness is a term that is often used to describe an important mental state that is rather hard to reach. It’s a term often used by spiritual gurus, sages and monks, and it’s not always easy to define due to the intrinsic nature of human beings wired around primary instincts.
That’s why higher consciousness is generally defined as “the part of the human mind that is capable of transcending animal instincts”, or lower consciousness.
Indeed, much of our lives are spent in lower consciousness, paying more attention to our external surroundings to survive. It’s a by-product of living in the modern age.
Moreover, we tend to stick to the idea that higher consciousness isn’t a scientific but rather a religious concept.
The question: Is it possible to access the higher consciousness?
With conscious attention, we can learn to access the higher consciousness, or the spiritual self, with greater frequency, becoming more focused on serving others than service to oneself.
2 Ways To Connect With Your Higher Self
First and foremost, your Higher Self speaks with you in your dream state – the realm of your subconscious.
It’s important to understand that every single character in your dream represents yourself – this or that aspect of your own subconscious that you probably disown.
For example, when you dream about the person who was present in your life at some point, that’s how your Higher Self tells you that there are some events that happened in your life at that time that you haven’t’ learned from. And now you repeat those patterns.
Meditation is one of the most powerful ways to connect with your Higher Self-consciously.
Your higher consciousness isn’t’ separate from you. It’s always present. It’s the higher aspect of your consciousness that is characterized by high vibrational frequency.
When you experience love and when you truly forgive, that’s when you live from your Higher Self consciousness.
So the meditation is designed to help you connect with your higher self aims first of all on raising your vibrational frequency.
You can ask questions and write or type your first, immediate gut-reaction answers. Then go back and re-read them with an awareness of your physical and emotional response.
You’ll see right away if your answer came from the ego or the higher s
- Self-esteem refers to the positive (high self-esteem) or negative (low self-esteem) feelings that we have about ourselves.
- Self-esteem is determined both by our own achievements and accomplishments and by how we think others are judging us.
- Self-esteem can be measured using both direct and indirect measures, and both approaches find that people tend to view themselves positively.
- Self-esteem shows important variations across different cultural, gender, and age groups.
- Because it is so important to have high self-esteem, we may seek out, process, and remember information in a way that allows us to see ourselves even more positively.
- High self-esteem is correlated with but does not cause, a variety of positive outcomes.
