Humans are multifaceted creatures. When we are born, our souls incarnate into a new body during a specific time and place. As our lives progress, we develop an ego which is molded & shaped by our experiences.
The ego is not bad – it the brain’s safety mechanism that makes rational decisions to keep us alive. Our ego creates our basic survival skills that protect us from harm.
However, because our world is superficial, our egos can get distracted by 3D programming, seeking money & glory to feel fulfilled. While these things help us thrive on the physical plane, too much focus on them can make us neglect our own divine power.
Reconnecting with our higher self opens pathways to the spiritual plane & gets us closer to enlightenment. The goal of all spiritual practice is to embody our higher self in our physical bodies.
Our higher self knows our true soul’s purpose. When we make spirituality a consistent practice, it becomes easier to switch the main driver of our life from our ego to our higher self, where our perspectives shift so we can make decisions from a higher perspective.
The ego is not bad, & we can’t completely detach ourselves from it. It is part of our human brain. However, learning how to balance our ego with our higher self can allow us to move through life more harmoniously & with less resistance.
Many spiritually curious folks find the concept of the higher self a bit abstract – “so how do I find my higher self?” Listen to hypnosis tracks. Try a sound bath. Meditate in child’s pose during yoga. These are all forms of meditation, which slow down the incoming stream of conscious thoughts. When our conscious mind is calm, we make room for epiphanies & revelations that are transmitted to us from our higher self through intuition.
Although this may sound frightening, always know that your higher self *is* you. The part of you who fears it is your ego, aka your “lower self.” Your higher self will never steer you wrong. It knows you better than you think you do, because your higher self is a divine being. Your ego is only human.
So do not be afraid of your higher self. Connect with them. They have a lot to tell you.
