Your Higher Self knows how to experience Heaven on Earth
How to Connect with your Higher Self
Your Higher Self is the spirit part of you that is said to ‘reside’ in the Ether (the non-physical realm). It’s your Divine spark. This part of you helps you to keep on track with your Life’s purpose and in touch with your passion and joy.
Is my Higher Self the same as my Soul?
Yes, it’s the part of you that has access to all the wisdom amassed over the course of the many lifetimes you’ve lived, past, present and future. Some people like to make a distinction between Higher Self, Spirit and Soul. I’m not sure how useful these distinctions are unless you’re God and you need to get technical about it.
What does my Higher Self do?
Your Higher Self is like a pure background consciousness that offers forth its wisdom and directions about where to go now. Sometimes these directions can take a while to come through into your mind consciousness. But, there are ways to access the wisdom of your Higher Self directly by bypassing the mind.
Your Higher Self is not ‘out there’ in the Ether. I want to put forward the idea that your Higher Self is you, your consciousness, in your body.
It’s you who set the course of your life and the things you came here to learn about before you even got here. It’s you whispering guidance to you about your highest path and purpose. It’s you who has your feelings in response to your thoughts, which create your reality. It’s you who set that up as a mechanism by which you could use those as spiritual feedback about where you’re headed in your life.
Am I ever separate from my Higher Self? I don’t feel connected to my Spirit.
Have you ever had that exciting feeling which tells you that you’re here to do great things? Have you ever had a humbling feeling that you’re someone really special, with a special perspective to bring? Those are background input from your Higher Self. We mostly drown out such input with our thoughts and our fears and when we listen to our fear, we feel disconnected from our spirit.
If we have a Higher Self, do we also have a lower self?
Yes. We have three selves. The Higher self, the lower self and the every-day self, which is you every day walking and talking. The lower self is your subconscious mine. Its level of awareness is like that of a 4-6 year old. Often people contact their lower self, mistaking it for their Higher self. If you use pendulums and/or dowsing, you are most likely contacting your lower self (or low-level astral beings). Your Higher self speaks to you directly—it does not need tools to work through.
Pendulums and dowsing can be helpful diagnostic tools. However, they are not good for connecting with your Higher Self.
How can I be more connected to my Higher Self?
Connecting to your Higher Self means living your Spirit. It involves four things.
1. Empowerment – remembering that you are a child of the Universe, with the power to create your world
You came here to be incarnated in the physical and to keep a connection to your Spirit intact. You want to keep a connection to your Higher Self because that’s the part of you which knows where to go and, what to take on the journey and what to do to get there. Many souls who are incarnated here already do not have that connection anymore. They’ve lost it because they see themselves as separate from God or from the Divine energy that is the Creator of all things. People often treat themselves as if they’re at the mercy of an outside force that controls the course of our lives. This is the common way to be and behave.
Living your Spirit means remembering that you are God energy or Source energy in a physical body and the Creator of your world. The power inside you to create your world is the same power that creates worlds. It’s your life purpose to utilize it to create the world you want. Source creates through you, not outside of you. Often we go about manifesting the wrong way. We must trust that we create our experience and we can create the experience of Heaven on Earth.
2. Intuition – talking to yourself
You don’t need to contact your Higher Self as an entity outside of you – it is you! And you don’t need to hire a psychic in order to contact your Higher Self (although you can if you’re particularly alienated and don’t know where you’re headed or what you want). The wisdom is inside of you, if you will access it.
Listen to your desires
Above all, pay attention to your desires. Your truest, heartfelt desires are feedback from your Higher Self about what you want to do now.
Living from your Higher Self means not sacrificing or ignoring those desires. It also means listening to those desires on a daily basis.
I manage my day by asking myself ‘what do I really want to do now?’ You might think that asking myself that means that the stuff I don’t want to do never gets done but it’s not the case. I actually regularly become inspired to overcome the challenges and the difficult tasks also, when the time is right, or I manifest someone to help me. I take my desires as feedback about the direction I want to go in. And when I remember to do it, it allows me to live in an inspired way.
Meditate and quiet your mind
The quickest way to practice accessing your Higher self is with meditation. It quiets the mind and the chatter which tells you who you are and what you can and can’t do and be and takes you straight to the quiet and calm which is your Higher Self. Start meditating by just focusing on your breath.
3. Healing – Clearing the clutter which stands between you and your truest self.
Most people don’t know they want healing – they just know that they feel bad. So what can you do if you mostly feel bad? What if you don’t know what to do to heal that? You can just put out the intention to be as aligned as possible with your Higher Self. Putting out that intention will put you on a healing journey back towards who you are.
If you have the energy to be proactive, make it your work to clear away anything which is not aligned with who you really are. Your Higher Self is pure joy. You know what is not aligned with your Higher Self by how good it feels. If you feel good, then it’s aligned with your Higher Self. If you feel bad, then it’s not aligned.
The clutter I’m referring to includes unhelpful beliefs such as ‘I’m not good enough’, being with people who do not make you feel your best, any past associations or events which cause you to feel bad, any feeling which does not feel good to you is out of alignment with your Higher Self. It helps to find its source and purge the belief or attitude that causes it.

4. Connecting first with your lower self.
Perhaps this sounds like a contradiction, but to connect with your higher self, you must first connect with your lower self, which is basically a 4-6 year child. Jesus said, “Unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
Mother Earth can assist you in connecting with your Higher self. First, do a grounding exercise by imagining your-self with a line that starts at the bottom of your feet that travels down to the center of the earth.
Next, connect with your lower self. Recall something about yourself at age 4-6. Perhaps remember playing outside, as a 6-year-old. Imagine trees, birds, deer, cats, dogs, butterflies, lady bugs. Ask these power animals to help you as well. Imagine a sunny day and you are playing innocently outside—riding a bike, playing hopscotch, playing with a ball, blowing bubbles, etc.
After you connect with Mother Earth and your lower self, ask to be connected with your Higher self. Start “talking” to your Higher self. State “As a child of God, I call forth my Higher self.” Let your Higher-self know what is going on and what guidance or direction you want.
Expect to receive guidance from your Higher self in the form of colors, sounds, feelings, numbers, animals and sacred geometry, especially if you are familiar with decoding their meanings. Allow ways your Higher self can communicate with you by studying symbolic messages. You will also begin to receive guidance about what to do next and all the right people will begin to show up in your life.
Ask your Higher self, “What Can I do to experience Heaven on Earth?” Get excited and trust that something magical will happen, all you have to do is allow it.
