How to Connect to your Higher Self.

High Self Concept

The Higher Self is generally regarded as a form of being only to be recognized in a union with a divine source. In recent years the New Age faith has encouraged the idea of the Higher Self in contemporary culture, though the notion of the Higher Self has been interpreted throughout numerous historical spiritual faiths. Some denominations believe that the higher self is a part of an individual’s metaphysical identity, while others teach that the higher self is essentially our tie to the heavens. Similar to the notion of the soul, the higher self can be defined by many different sects; while also being a topic of interest in the scientific and philosophical fields.

Religious Views

Christian: In the Christian Interpretation, the Bible teaches that all beings contain a fragment of the Holy Spirit that ties them to the higher self, or God. The Holy Spirit is widely discussed by the church, but the idea of the individual higher consciousness is not taught as frequently. The church preaches that the soul is what connects us to God and that we must honor and keep our souls pure by following the morals and ethics of the bible.

Hinduism: In Hinduism, the higher self is one and the same with the Jiva or individual self. With this perspective, the Hindu faith generally teaches that the higher self, or Atman is not an object possessed by an individual, rather the self is the subject which perceives. In his book, The Higher Self, Deepak Chopra utilizes the views of the Hindi denomination to support his claims concerning the divine force that is acquired with the awareness of the self. HInduism teaches that through the examination of self-knowledge, or “atma jnana,” one can attain salvation by comprehending the true self.

New Age: Most New Age literature defines the Higher self as an extension of the self to a more advanced and incorporeal realm. This Higher Self is essentially an extension of the worldly self. With this perspective, New Age text teaches that in exercising your relationship with the higher self, you will gain the ability to manifest your desired future before you. In other words, the self creates its own reality when in union with the Higher Self.

Higher Self Meditation and Channeling

In numerous reports concerning the Higher Self, the practice of meditation or channeling to contact the Higher Self is highly encouraged. Most of this ideology agrees with the concept that with mindful awareness of the higher self – peace, salvation, or enlightenment may be procured. This is due to the idea that the Higher Self contains an advanced amount of insight into man’s most taxing questions; such as the purpose of existence or death, etc. Evidence of this insight is found within the book, Open to Channel: How To Connect With Your Guide, where dual authors: Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer report a collective and educational account of the practice and benefits of existing in alignment with the Higher Self. This piece cites views from numerous practicers of meditation and channeling who claim a consistent result of new acquired peace and intuition. Essentially the idea behind this practice is that through spiritual exposure, a person can make a conscious connection with their higher self or other higher beings. In this state, the meditator is free to tap into this higher intelligence in order to develop a more enlightened perspective on world matters.

Your higher self is that inner wise voice, your gut instinct. Its when you hear your Mother telling you to stop doing something. The voice in you that tells you to do the right thing.

Meditation quiets the mind and makes it easier for you to hear your higher self. It is the voice of reason. Make a effort to become intuned with this inner voice. Make a effort to connect with it daily. Make a practice to really listen to your higher self.

  1. Your gut instinct is part of your lower self (which is to ensure survival on the physical plane)..

    The way to connect to your higher self is more that of following your heart (rather than gut or mind)


    • The lower Chakras are not bad, they help us stay grounded as we grow spiritually. They need to be healthy and balanced for the Kundalini to rise above them. But I feel just listening to your heart is like looking at the world in rosy glasses and sometimes those glasses have blinders on them. That is why I feel its important to balance it with your intuition and mindful thinking. Because your higher self should always have your best interest, if you start realizing what your higher self is being harmful in its advice, you might need to reconsider the source. As our Kundalini advances, your psychic abilities may increase and you may also tap into other entities as well.

  2. blessings…interesting site..i enjoyed it…i must comment however that kundalini awakeening is a dnagerous journey for westerners and one should only embark on it after years of work on is not a piece of candy and one cannot find all these answers you mention here..kundalini…etc..this is serious business and a westerner has little knowledge of these things..although you seem quite educated and have had one r two experiences…i warn against getting too carried away as you may be setting yourself up for a hard experience in the future from your inner self and kundalini for feeling so empowered after such little experience in this regard…i wish you the best and this is purely my humble opinion based on years of work in this field..aho..namastum…william
