Our higher self is our best guide on our spiritual journey. Our higher self will guide us in our best interest. Unlike teachers, gurus, and even others on their spiritual journeys, there is no ego to detract from the guidance for self gain, self promotion, possession, superiority, or recognition. Many have come to me for advice, and I always encourage independence, self reliance, and self love by relying on our higher selves for true guidance. I am merely here to inspire and encourage, but cannot serve as others true guides.
Our higher self already has all the answers to our questions. We only need to listen to the answers. You can practice meditation where you can access your higher self, and here is an exercise to help you get started:
1) Sit quietly in a peaceful room with your cell phones, computers, and all electronic equipment turned off. Take long deep breaths, by inhaling and exhaling completely. Begin to focus on your breathing and envision an image in your mind. I use blue skies and clouds as my image.
2) As your thoughts enter your mind, release these thoughts as if watching clouds pass by in the sky. With each thought that enters, picture each thought as a cloud and just observe it passing in the sky.
3) When your mind has no more thoughts entering which may take several minutes to do, ask yourself a question that you want to know the answer.
4) Listen for the answer. You will know it’s the higher self speaking when it is not the answer you may expect. For example, you may ask, “should I take this new job even if it requires moving alone to a new city where I know no one?” The answer you may hear may be “yes,” even if you fear being alone without a support system. Begin practicing this until you can access your higher self instantly during your day without doing the above steps.
Once you can access your higher self at will, your life will become easier to navigate without relying on others to tell you what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. Your higher self is a powerful tool that few of us know how to access or use regularly in our daily lives. Good luck! Blessings and light to you.
