It’s part of you that knows who you really are. It’s the part of you that is connected to the energy of all things, and it is this connection gives your life meaning. Your higher self is a part of your personality that exists beyond time and space. It has always been there and will always be. It’s not something that you have to do or achieve; it’s simply who you are at your core.
Your higher self knows everything about you. It knows what makes you happy, what makes you sad, what makes you angry, and what makes you feel joy. Your higher self knows all of this because it has been with you since birth and will continue after death — if you choose to let it. Try the five tips below to connect with your higher self and tap into its energy.
One of the best ways to connect with your higher self is through meditation. When you meditate, you can quiet your mind to hear your inner voice more clearly and easily access your unconscious mind — which is where your higher self exists. Moreover, meditation offers other benefits, such as stress relief, improved focus, and the ability to be kinder to yourself and others.
If you’re new to meditation, remember there is no “perfect” way to do it, nor can you get it wrong. Here are some ways to get started with meditation practice:
- Sit on the floor or in a chair with your back straight and eyes closed, keeping your spine long and straight. If sitting is uncomfortable, you can support yourself against a wall, lay down on the floor, or find any comfortable position that you can hold for a few minutes or more. Some people prefer to use a meditation cushion to maintain a comfortable seat.
- Take deep breaths through your nose and out through your mouth while focusing on your breath going in and out of your body. When thoughts come up during this time — which they will — acknowledge them without judgment before returning focus to your breath going in and out of your body until it feels like enough time has passed.
- You can also try different breathing techniques to increase your focus and ability to tap into your higher self. For example, 4-7-8 breathing uses a four-second inhale, seven-second hold, and eight-second exhale, producing a calming effect and promoting restful sleep.
- Learn to incorporate moments of stillness throughout your day. Your higher self-thrives in quiet and solitude. To connect with it, spend some time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. This doesn’t mean you have to go into a cave for weeks at a time; simply taking a few minutes in your day is enough.
- While meditating, visualize yourself connecting with your higher self and receiving guidance from it. Doing so creates a safe environment for this connection to occur in real life.
If you feel stuck or are having trouble figuring out what to do in your life, one of the best ways to reconnect with your higher self is to walk outside. This can be especially helpful if you feel like you’re in a rut or have lost sight of your goals.
When we walk outside in nature, we feel more connected to our higher self and tap into its energy, which allows us to see things from a new perspective. When we get out of our heads and into our bodies, we often feel more relaxed and less stressed out about our problems.
Going for a walk is also a great way to clear your mind to see things more clearly when making decisions about your life path or career direction. Removing the clutter from your mind makes it much easier for answers to come through loud and clear.
Journaling can be a powerful tool for connecting with our spiritual selves. It helps us develop an inner voice and allows us to explore our emotions, dreams, hopes, and fears. It also provides an opportunity to write down things we are grateful for.
When you write in your journal, you create space for essential insights to come through. You may find yourself writing about things you have never spoken about before or speaking about them differently than you would if you were talking out loud with someone else. When you put pen to paper, there is no interruption or judgment from anyone else. Your writing exercises are private and confidential — they belong only to you.
Negativity can be contagious. Even if you don’t realize it, negativity can seep into your life through other people — especially those closest to you. If someone in your inner circle is constantly feeling down or complaining about their lives, negative thoughts will also begin to creep into your mind. On the flipside, surrounding yourself with positive people is one of the easiest ways to maintain a positive outlook on life and avoid inviting negativity into your life.
Negative people will bring you down if you let them, so avoid them. If there is someone in your life who is constantly getting you down with their negative energy, then it’s time to end that toxic relationship. By surrounding yourself with positive people who encourage you to be the best version of yourself, you’ll feel more motivated to reach your goals and dreams without feeling alone in this journey called life.
This is a simple concept that can be difficult to master. It takes practice to learn how to manage yourself around negative people or situations. You won’t always be able to avoid the negativity in your life. But you can manage your reaction and choose the correct response.
While silence allows us to hear our thoughts more clearly, music can also help us tap into our higher selves by bringing us joy through sound vibrations that emanate from within. Indeed, music can be a powerful tool for healing, relaxation, inspiration, and motivation.
Music is said to be a universal language, and it can be a potent tool for healing. When you listen to music, it creates a vibration in your body. This vibration can help you tap into your intuition and connect with your higher self. The right kind of music can help you feel more positive, relaxed, and inspired. It can also help you work through issues troubling you or connect with your inner voice.
When working with this technique, it’s important to choose music that resonates with you on an emotional level — not just any old song will do. If you’re not sure what type of music will get you started, try going with something soothing like classical or instrumental music. You can also try nature sounds like ocean waves crashing on a shore or birds chirping in the morning sun.
It’s important to note that you don’t need to be religious or spiritual to connect with your higher self. Some people believe our higher self is God, while others think it’s more of the energy surrounding us. Regardless of the belief system, connecting with it can make a big difference in your life. When you connect with your higher self, it’s like plugging into the power source of the universe and tapping into its energy.
When you feel this feeling, life becomes more manageable. You don’t have to worry about what other people think of you because you’re happy with yourself. You know who you are and where you are going. You know that there is something bigger than yourself that works for the good of all beings. And when you experience that connection with your higher self, it’s easy to see that things happen for your benefit and not against it.
