No technique, no healer, no group and no guru will ever be as powerful of a force in your healing as connecting to your True Self.
It is of the utmost importance that we train ourselves to stop repetitive ego programs from running and relax ourselves into the thoughts that come from our Higher/True/Inner Self. Those thoughts aren’t small and scared like ego thoughts. They are expansive and in Love with Source and Universal / Natural Law.
The most direct path to healing is to engage one’s True Self, embrace it fully and work diligently every day to embody that Real Self while undoing the subconscious and ego programming that blocks out awareness of the Self.
Accept Your Self
The Higher Self can be thought of as pure awareness that is not limited by conditioning or illusions. It is your ultimate guide, and should be your only guide through life. Understanding and aligning with this aspect of your Self is the most important part of the healing and clearing process.
Many people are angry at their Higher Selves for “allowing” them to be badly harmed in this lifetime, and I understand that. However, the Higher Self can’t stop bullets, and it can’t stop abusers with a desire to harm others from doing so.
This realm is truly a battleground, and we knew the risks coming into this world. We knew we would be wounded, guaranteed. We also knew that we could heal through reconnecting with our True Self. The enemies of freedom know this as well, so they do everything they can to block us from accessing the Higher Self.
Often times, the closer you get to a breakthrough, the more they attack, because they are afraid of the power and potential that you truly possess.
A Real Breakthrough
Healing and accessing your True Power is not usually easy to do, and it does not happen all at once. Yet at the same time, a breakthrough is literally a breath away. It is as subtle as laying down the ego and embracing your Higher Self. That is the basic foundation for all healing, and it must be done in order for deep healing to occur.
It is not about doing a technique, but about letting go of what you are NOT and accessing what you TRULY are. It is not complicated, but it also is not easy, and it often requires attempting to do it again and again, in spite of all past failed attempts.
The number one key to “hearing” (more like feeling) your Higher Self is to quiet the ego. The more you can keep the ego minimized and silent, the more you are able to feel and think via your Higher Self.
The ego is a construct of the left brain, and it tends to be extremely loud and disruptive. It does not care about your happiness whatsoever, it only wants to be in charge of your mind. It will constantly replay noise and programming from your past in order to maintain that control.
What is even more ironic is when the ego tries to contact the Higher Self with something like this:
“Ok Higher Self, I want to get some answers from you. Here are my questions. I want you to answer them all right now please. Hello? Are you hearing me? I want answers, please. Go ahead and send me those answers right now, please. I’m waiting. Go ahead. Start now. I really need these answers. Go ahead and deliver them right now. I can’t stand to be this way and have all of these problems. I need answers so that I can heal, so why aren’t you giving them to me? Hurry up, dammit!”
and on and on and on…
Obviously, no answers will be heard in that way because the ego is making too much noise, and then triggering feelings of upset that no answers were given. I have seen this countless times in many people.
So minimizing and taming the ego is really one of the most important aspects in any ongoing spiritual practice. Notice that it is about taming the ego, NOT destroying it or rendering it totally mute. The ego is a tool for navigating 3d, and like any tool it must be used wisely.
Comprehending the Higher Self
Your Higher Self is who you truly are beyond the identity of any single lifetime. It is a vast consciousness that has a very “high” perspective on everything in this level of experience. It comes into one’s awareness through the right brain and through the heart, which is why the (left brain) ego construct needs to be silent in order to perceive the Higher Self.
The types of thoughts that come from the Higher Self engage both hemispheres of the brain simultaneously. These thoughts put one’s life and circumstances into perspective, giving one a more holistic understanding of reality.
One important thing to keep in mind is that your Higher Self gives one answer at a time, and not in the way that the ego wants it. The ego wants ALL the answers up front along with a flow chart, syllabus and FAQ provided all at once. It doesn’t work like that.
The Higher Self can only give us a little bit of information at a time until we build up the “bandwidth capacity” to be able to receive its frequency in larger doses. An analogy would be how an adult communicates to a 3 year old, but in this instance the Higher Self is 16 Billion years old and the ego is like a teenager that thinks it knows everything, yet still has questions while demanding that the answers comes in the way that it wants.
So the Higher Self will give one answer (with vast implications) that we then incorporate into our awareness. Later it will give another piece of information that we incorporate, and so on. In this manner we are able to put together a larger framework of understanding over time.
As your awareness of your True Self grows, it is able to reside more and more within your physical and energy bodies where it belongs. This is only possible through silencing and taming the ego so that it can be easily set aside when you want to act and think through the greater awareness of your Higher Self.
As we reincorporate the Higher Self back into the body over time, especially into the Heart center, it returns to its true place as our Divine Inner Self.
