ASOKA SELVARAJAH: “Ten Steps To Contacting Your Higher Self”

The Higher Self is that part of you that connects you directly to the spiritual realms. It is eternal, infinitely wise and transcends our everyday consciousness. It is in touch with the Divine because it is part of it. Attaining knowledge of the Higher Self, and its depths of inner wisdom, is the goal of the spiritual question in all its many guises.

Each of us is connected with the Divine. The Higher Self within us far transcends the understanding of our conscious minds. This is the power that all the great geniuses and teachers of history have accessed. It is also the place of magic and miracle in our lives. Here are the steps to contact it:

1. Belief & Expectation

The first step is to BELIEVE that you have a Higher Self to establish communication with! Then EXPECT every day that this communication will improve as you focus diligently on inner growth. Without these two essential prerequisites, it is hard to achieve anything at all in life, even on the physical level. For inner growth, these two qualities are essential. So set a GOAL to achieve contact with the Higher Self, review that goal daily, and maintain your purpose with determination until success is yours.

2. Transform Your World View

We are brought up with a primarily materialistic world view that neglects the role of Spirit. To establish close contact with spiritual realms, we need to have our entire being — conscious and subconscious — congruent with our goal. In any major activity/goal, you have to establish the rules of the game and the way it is played. Contacting your Higher Self is the same. Therefore, seek out writings and teachers that expand your understanding of the universe as fundamentally being a realm of Consciousness and Mind.

3. Solitude

Make regular time for yourself where you can be totally alone. A quiet place is preferable. Just sit quietly with no expectations. Do NOTHING. This may feel very uncomfortable and strange in the beginning. Persist. You give time and space for the inner voice to make itself heard. It will do so either during that quiet time, or else during the events of the day. A synchronistic event will occur; someone will tell you exactly what you need to hear; you will get a sudden flash of insight. All the great geniuses of history have found times of regular solitude and silence for themselves. You should too.

4. Meditation

In meditation, you work to discipline your mind and silence the internal chatter that constantly fill it. You create a pure vessel for the Higher Self to fill. Following your breath is an excellent meditation discipline, as is concentrating upon a candle flame. Or visualize a golden ball of light in your Solar Plexus that fills your whole body with energy and healing. There are many practices that you can study and use.

5. Journal

Record your feelings, emotions, dreams and insights every day in a journal. This will help you to come into closer contact with your inner intuitive depths. You can ask the Higher Self questions here, and then later on record whatever insights/answers you receive. If you do this regularly with belief and expectation, you WILL receive the answers you need.

6. Inner Dialogue

Conduct a regular inner dialogue with your Higher Self. For the next 40 days, decide to keep in contact throughout the day. Say to your Higher Self, “I know you are there and I want to get to know you and pay attention to you. Please begin to speak to me and guide my life” Don’t worry if this dialogue is entirely one-way to begin with. Remember that you have been out of touch for decades. It takes a while to clear the cobwebs! Persist with this inner dialogue as if talking to a friend — chatting, asking questions, sharing your hopes — and begin to listen for answers. They will come.

7. Life Lessons

Look upon life as a Mystery School. Believe that the whole of your life — events, situations and people — has been structured PRECISELY in order to teach you exactly what you need to know right now. Approach life as if the whole of creation is conspiring to do you good! Whenever something happens in your life, for good or ill, ask yourself what the lesson is for you. Even unpleasant people/situations have been deliberately placed there as a challenge to help you grow. As you begin to view life as a drama in which you play the starring role, the role of the Higher Self will become increasingly evident in your life. Record your findings in your journal.

8. Dreams

Expect your Higher Self to speak to you in dreams. Before going to sleep, do some stretching and bending to relax your body completely. Ask your Higher Self a question and expect an answer. When you wake up, recall whatever you can of your dream and write it down in your journal. If you are not used to remembering dreams, this will take time and persistence. However, with patience, you will begin to recall your dreams AND receive answers from your Higher Self.

9. Mindfulness

Focus upon living more and more in the present, on the NOW. When you are eating, be aware that you are eating. When you walk, know that you are walking. The only real moment is now — the past is gone forever and the future has yet to be. Therefore, work to clear your mind of concerns, illusions and extrapolations. Clear the mental clutter from the mind and create space for the Higher Self to fill.

10. Patience!

Remember, you may have spent your entire life out of touch with Source. Therefore, it takes time to learn how to re-establish contact. Anything worth doing takes time and practice. Be vigilant and practice these steps every day and you will receive the answers you need. Remember: The Higher Self WANTS to be in contact. In fact, to even speak of it as someone apart from you is contradictory. The Higher Self IS you! The real you. So get in touch with YOU!

SOUL TRAVEL RULES: “The Bond Between You And Your Divine Self”

Few of us appreciate the divine bond we share within ourselves, the connection between our beings at various physical and spiritual levels.

These are the myriad shades of the self that we possess and the awareness of being thinking, rational beings.

We should reflect the pride of being human in our actions and expressions. We must shun the saying that “we’re only human”; because our humanity is not our weakness and definitely not a flaw.

It is our strength and it is what makes the Divine light shine in us. The fine-tuned frequencies of Love throb in our hearts each day.

It is time to make that gift prominent. It is time to be one with the god that is all around and within you, not like a million miles away. As the mystic and spiritual guru Ramakrishna Paramhansa said,

“God is everywhere but He is most manifest in man.”

With this new recognition of awareness, it is time to be free and uninhibited; to live life to the fullest, to love freely and deeply, to feel intensely. That is what it means to be human.

To express the Divine in you. Once you feel the expanding of your energies, the Universe will feel as fluid as water in your cupped hands. Tender and responsive.

This partnership with your Self is to be acknowledged and respected. It is to be asserted.

You will be excited and delighted once it is done and then you will live as spontaneously as if you are the flowing water, bubbling and chattering down a mountain stream.

That is when your Self is manifest; when you believe. When you believe it has already happened.

This limitless expression is just waiting to happen, waiting for you to let it in and breathe it out.

MICHELLE WALLING: “19 Things That Can Help With A Spontaneous Awakening”

More and more people are having spontaneous spiritual awakenings than ever!  Many are experiencing paranormal or metaphysical experiences that are surprising and are seeking answers about these things.

Many people are awakening to a sudden realization that they are not just a human being or their physical body, but they are spiritual beings having a physical experience on planet Earth.  As we receive waves of love and light energy to the planet, we are receiving a vibrational boost which serves to awaken and cleanse all that is no longer serving this reality.

A spiritual awakening is a life changing event that is prompted by your higher self. Your life may change drastically in order to align you with your highest and best path.  You may lose some friends as well gain new friends. Sudden realizations about relationships in your life can bring about tumultuous emotions.  You may be prompted to change jobs or to move. Be assured that your life will never be the same and that you are in for a glorious peek behind the veil that some people in your life will not understand.

Here are some more spontaneous experiences that have been reported with a sudden awakening:

  • Uncomfortable physical “ascension” symptoms
  • OBE’s (Out of body experiences)
    Huge downloads of information. May see geometric shapes, numbers, colors, light.
  • Extraterrestrial contact or spirit guide contact

As you make your way through these experiences, here are 20 things that can help you shift through a sudden or drastic awakening.

1.  Stay calm and reduce your fears through information and healing. No, you are not going crazy.

2.  Learn to use discernment. Trust your instinct or “gut feelings”.

3.  Forgive yourself and others for everything you think is “wrong”.

4.  Be responsible for how you treat others and for how you are creating your reality.

5.  Assess your diet and lifestyle. Alcohol and drugs cause aura cracks. Research GMO food and chemical additives. Drink plenty of pure, fluoride free water.

6.  Ground with the planet, take frequent baths, breathe deeply and consciously, and meditate. Create your own style of meditation.

7.  Don’t think you have to figure everything out at once. Allow things to unfold rather than trying to control your awakening.

8.  Communicate with like-minded individuals. Contact someone who has an experienced an awakening to discuss the most pressing questions you have. Social media is an awesome tool.

9.  Research spiritual awakening online to find information that will help you (while using discernment and taking only what resonates). Follow the breadcrumbs by being led to certain articles or videos.

10.  Connect with your higher self/guides to ask for help in certain areas that may seem overwhelming.

11.  Make notes about what you experience, including your dreams.

12.  Research alternative healing methods such as crystals, Reiki, acupuncture, EFT, etc.

13.  Move the body- walk, swim, yoga, tai chi, etc.

14.  Move your awareness from your head to your heart. Don’t get caught up in overthinking.

15.  Allow rest and self care. Spend time alone if you need to.

16.  Watch for synchronicities and number repetitions. These let you know you are on the right path.

17.  Allow emotions to flow through you/do not block or suppress.

18. Become the conscious observer of your life and get out of victim mode.

19.  Remove toxic relationships and situations from your life.

(20).  Continue to raise your vibration.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Meeting Your Higher Self And Asking For Help”

Have you met your Higher Self?  Have you even tried to reconnect with it?

Yes, we have reached a point of time where all of us are somehow aware about the concept of Higher Self but not all of us have met our Higher Self or had a conversation with it.

So, your Higher Self is what you really are which is obviously so much more than your corporeal form.  Your Higher Self knows so much about you that even you aren’t aware about.  Thus, it is obvious that conversations with your Higher Self are going to be far more productive than you can imagine.  These conversations can actually make you so much more than what you think you will become because these conversations will fill you with positivity and happiness.

You have to remember that you are always connected to your Higher Self.  Yes, you can talk to it anytime you want because the bond you share with it is of unity; it’s basically a part of you.  So, we feel that we are separated from our Higher Self but that is not the truth.  Separation of such a kind can never ever exist.  All that you have to accept is that you have far more energy than your physical being and thus you will experience far more than just what you experience physically.

So why should you listen to your Higher Self?

Because it is always, always there to help you.  Whenever you feel that your intuition is telling you something, the truth is that your Higher Self is trying to talk to you. Listen to it, keenly.

How Does the Higher Self Communicate?

It does through your intuition or through the random signs and symbols that you may see here and there.  Don’t dismiss these just like that. They have a meaning that you must try to comprehend.

All you have to do now is to take your Higher Self on a date…

To go on a date with your Higher Self, imagine yourself to be in a peaceful place; someplace where you are happy and comfortable.  Now, try and feel the presence of your Higher Self.  Once you feel it, talk to your Higher Self.  Ask anything, don’t worry the Higher Self won’t judge you or bother you.

Once you have asked the questions, wait for the answers.  The Higher Self might use various methods like images and feelings and words; just pay attention to the answers.

Sometimes, you may have to distinguish between your Ego and your Higher Self. In order to do that, you have to see yourself when the answers come.  If you feel any anxiety or stress, then you are talking to your ego because the ego is attached to the feeling of pain.  Ego creates a feeling of negativity through creating and appropriating some sort of identity.  The Higher Self doesn’t do this.  There is no identity in the Higher Self situation.  It is just boundless and abundant, overflowing energy.

You can also try to ask more yes/ no questions because such questions go beyond the functioning of the mind and are answered by the Higher Self.

You can also try and use Journaling.  When we journal, we can distinguish between the noise of the mind and the things that the Higher Self says.

So, it is time to sit and chat with your Higher Self.  You will probably end up finding something about yourself that you never knew existed.
