Daily rituals are key for getting in touch with your greater potential. Prayer, vision work, shamanic journeys — all are wonderful means to discover the wisdom and healing that your higher self has to offer.
My understanding of the higher self equates it with the quantum waveform, our full potential across all possibilities and across all possible universes, expressed as a single infinite spirit. It is a singularity of sorts. This being exists the same way light can be both particle and wave. We are the particle, and the higher self is the wave.
Since I also believe that the imagination is a direct sense of potential – a sense like sight and sound – our imagination is a real vehicle for discovering our higher selves. We can connect with our higher selves simply by envisioning them, and no vision is actually wrong.
With a little discipline in learning meditation or trance-like states of altered consciousness, you can even converse with your higher self to gain wisdom and insight.
This is not quite as esoteric as it sounds! I do employ rattles and occasionally drums to aid in achieving a shamanic state of consciousness, but it is very much like entering a waking dream, and you definitely don’t have to be a shaman to do it. It’s another way of listening and seeing. Done with an open heart, you will find that the insight you receive does not feel like it comes from you — you will know you’re not just making it all up, but that it has deep value.
I have been helping others reach out to their higher selves and when I envision these beings, they are so beautiful they take my breath away and give me hope for humanity. We all have such unbelievable potential.
If you would like help connecting, I do offer readings, healings, and work to connect people with their guides and higher selves here: Shamanic Readings, Healings and Soul Retrievals.
