Defining the Higher Self is a little tricky. Different people refer to it in different ways. I like to think of my Higher Self as me in the future. Let’s break this down further. Read on or watch my Youtube video on the topic below!
When we talk about spiritual truths, the concept of linear time disintegrates. It doesn’t make any sense. So let’s establish a common understanding that time — linear time — does not exist. Everything is happening at the same time. Everything that will happen has already happened. The present is the only thing that we can be certain of: this Now moment.
I like to think of time as a circle. For instance, past lives are more like simultaneous lives. Visions and hopes I have about my future are more like things that can happen in a potential timeline.
So since time doesn’t exist, I and my Higher Self are the same.
My Higher Self has my highest good in mind when She (I use She to make it feel more personal to me, but my Higher Self has no gender) speaks to me through intuition. I also refer to this guidance as my inner voice or soul whispers/nudges.
She knows the outcome of every decision, but it’s tricky because She has to respect my free will.
As a being incarnate here on the earth, we all have free will. That’s one of the rules that we agreed to when we came here. So we can’t have extra- or interdimensional beings just telling us, “Do ABC so that you can get XYZ.”
If you think of life as a game, it’s not fun to get the cheat codes to beat all the levels. It’s interesting to add a little ~*spice*~in the form of trials and tribulations (yes, yes, easier said than done).
She is trying to ascend to the next level. She is trying to return to God, to Source, to All That Is, but She needs me to come along for the ride.
It’s like She’s pulling me along the soul evolution journey, gently nudging me, “No, come this way.” But again, that pesky concept of free will comes up. She can’t just give me the roadmap. So I have discovered different ways for me to communicate with Her.
Knowing that She exists has really changed my life. Just knowing that there’s a being further down the soul evolutionary path — me, essentially — gives me a sense of peace and calm that somebody is looking out for me. So when I daydream or get downloads — random spurts of information — throughout the day, I know that’s Her communicating with me.
It really is a skill to discern when my ego is speaking vs. when my Higher Self is speaking.
To me, my ego is more frazzled and frenzied, and speaks to me from fear i.e. “YOU GOTTA DO THIS THIS AND THIS OR ELSE XYZ WILL HAPPEN!!! NO WAIT YOU GOTTA DO THIS OR ELSE ABC WILL HAPPEN!!! WAIT NO —” You feel that frenetic energy? Doesn’t feel good, does it?
My Higher Self via my intuition, on the other hand, speaks from a much calmer place. It’s like She’s sitting somewhere on Her throne à la the High Priestess or the Empress in tarot and calmly offers: “You want this free game or nah?”
You have the choice to accept the help of your Higher Self. Or not. Because at the end of the day, you’re going to make it. Your soul is going to make it along its evolutionary journey. No matter how long it takes, no matter how many incarnations on this Earth or other planets or the galaxies it takes, your soul will make it.
And your Higher Self will be waiting to greet you with open arms.
