Your Higher Self As Your Guide
Merry Meet :))) We've done a lot of work with spirit animals, deities and guides. One of the most important guides that you will ever work with is you. Yes, you read that right. ;) Your higher self. I see so many people going through hard times and looking to others to lift them up. One of the most important lessons I think one can learn is to listen to your higher self.
As humans we are quite quick to blame someone, anyone for the situations in which we are in. I am a firm believer that we create the world that is around us. Therefore if we want to change things, we need to look first to ourself. It's one thing to say we want things different, it's another to make the decision to change them. Your higher self is your spirit, your soul, your heart, your truth. Your higher self is the you that is unaffected by all the crap that is getting thrown at you in the mundane. Your higher self is full of love for things such as greed, jealousy and pain don't exist on the other side. Most importantly, your higher self is on your side! When we learn to quiet down the mundane chatter that our conscious loves to keep on overdrive we are able to hear our higher self.
Your higher self is with you all the time. They are there to help you with all your decisions and everything that you experience in life. Unfortunately a lot of us choose to ignore our higher selves completely. There's a few reasons for this. One is that we may be so buried in natural shields from pain that we have completely lost connection. Another is that we think we are undeserving. As soon as I say that most of you will probably say that you feel you are deserving. But if you are experiencing hard issues in life, if you really dig deep down, there may be a part of you that feels like you don't deserve the best. This is the part you need to find and heal. This is the part that you need to shut off instead of your higher self.
I actually was getting frustrated when I started meditating and was taking classes to learn to work with spirit guides. I kept seeing a woman who looked much like me. She was dressed in all white. Everyone else was seeing Grandma, and Aunt Emma, and Shaman, and.... you get the idea. But noooo, here I am seeing me. Ehmmmm... So I question my instructor and all she tells me is that it's perfect. Awesome! What in the world does that mean! It happened again in a different class, with a different teacher, and she told me the same thing. I had it exactly right. It wasn't until quite some time later that I finally understood the concept. For me I understood the soul, the subconscious is where you are free, etc. But visually it is actually easier to picture your higher self as a separate entity. Well for some of you it may be! It took me awhile to get comfy with it. On the other side we are capable of being in many places at one. Time and places don't exist like they do here. That's the best way I can think of to describe it. So I ask you to be open minded to this concept. Now will your higher self look exactly as you do right now? No, Yes? They could, or they could not. They will look like whatever you/they think you want them to so that it's easier for you.
When you start working with your higher self things will start happening. Now am I saying to forget your other guides, deities etc? Noooooo. lol :)))) But realize that your higher self is there as well, and you may want to start there with what you want. A lot of what you do in magick is informing your subconscious of your desires, ie your higher self. So check in with him/her once in awhile! Just talk, you can talk in your mind, out loud, start writing letters, whatever is easiest for you, just start doing it. Together you can and will change your life.
Love and Blessings,
