One of the hardest things to get in touch with and trust, is ironically the easiest also. Our higher self/true self/soul (depending on what feels right for you) is always guiding us, beckoning us to take the high road and turn our life around. Yet from a young age our soul whispers had to step aside for our personality to take centre stage. But the truth is our higher self has never left us, has never stopped guiding us, and as we consciously attune to its guidance, our faith and trust in our true self strengthens and illusions that we believed about ourselves start to fall away.
That’s because our higher self/true self/soul is the true essence of who we are. It’s the real us hidden underneath all the preconceptions of who we think we are. It’s a difficult concept for our personality to accept, but with some dedication to re-train your personality to remember and trust the truth of who you really are it’s amazing how simple it actually is to start to consciously connect with your soul.
So what are some of the benefits of conscious soul guidance?
- Your self-esteem improves.
- You start to trust yourself instead of listening to other people’s definition of what’s right for you.
- Anxiety and worry start to ease.
- You start to realise the false beliefs that you’ve taken on from society and family conditioning.
- Your life starts to make sense.
- You start to honour your feelings, realizing that they are telling you important truths about you.
- Your well-being starts to become important to you.
- You experience unconditional love.
- Your life has more meaning, purpose and and aliveness not found before.
- You dare to start to dream again.
The above is some of what tuning into my higher self/true self/soul has meant for me. Some will be the same for you too. If you are ready to make a conscious connection with your soul I recommend starting with a really simple exercise:
What you will need:
- 20 minutes of you time.
- Paper and pen or better still a pad specially dedicated you, your soul/higher self.
- The door closed and your phone switched off.
- The intention that the time is for you, your soul/higher self/true self.
Once you have read through the following instructions get comfortable, close your eyes and be excited to see what happens.
Sit in a comfortable position holding a pen between your thumb and forefinger of both hands – so that one had holds the top of the pen and the other the bottom in a horizontal direction.
Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Consciously breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Do this about 5 times and then breath into your throat, then your heart and then your stomach and imagine you are connecting to your soul/higher self as you do this. You will feel a slight shift in your energy as you do this – like your body is starting to relax properly. Now visualize the pen inbetween your hands and set your intention that your soul will work through your hand to communicate with you. Now with your eyes still closed ask your soul/higher self what message it has for you for your highest good. Without thinking open your eyes and write the first thing that comes through.
Setting your intention and consciously attempting to communicate with your soul/higher self is the greatest gift you can give to yourself. Enjoy!
