Aligning with Your Higher Self

Wisdom of Your Body


Your higher Self teaches wonderful lessons and provides clarity constantly through the wisdom of your body, so get to know what your body feels like when you ask Yes or No questions. During meditation, ask yourself questions like the following:
  • Am I terrified of the future?
  • Is it in my best interest to work for this company?
  • Is my heart feeling closed because I am afraid of intimacy with my husband/work associates/other?
  • Is it in my best interest to pursue this relationship/course of action?
  • Should I be doing something other than what I am doing with my life?
Each time you ask yourself a question, your body reacts in one of two ways: 1) it reacts kindly in accordance with alignment (YES) or 2) it warns you that something is not right (NO or more questions are necessary for clarification). With practice, you can discern your Truth this way.

When you are comfortable that you can discern your body’s Yes and No answers, it is time to address issues that are more complex. In your relaxed meditative state, put forth a troubling situation to your higher Self. Explain the situation at hand in detail; write it down if that feels better. Then ask Yes or No questions about the issue raised. If your body feels aligned after you ask a question, the answer is an emphatic YES. If your body feels misaligned, the answer may be NO or further questioning may be necessary. Those who are persistent and patient enough can do question and answer sessions like this until they facilitate an explosive emotional and energetic release. Once a lesson is learned, bodily discomfort and difficult feelings associated with it go away forever. Patience is required in this exercise.

Many are afraid to know their Truth—consciously or unconsciously—recognizing that the rug may be pulled out from under their lives if they learn it. The feeling is akin to the emotion in place prior to being fed into the jaws of some huge unknown creature with giant, knife-sharp fangs. Ask why you are afraid to know your Truth, and the answer will most likely surprise you. Please know that despite your misgivings, the unknown is a very powerful and necessary place; all creation comes forth from the unknown.

Some wonder whether there is danger in trusting the higher Self in all things, for they do not recognize what guides them and they do not trust themselves. Know that most have been taught that they are not trustworthy in one or more ways. Regardless of conditioning, however, your higher Self knows what needs accomplishing in your earthly realm, and it will not guide to that which is not possible within the confines of your current existence. If it feels right in your body, it is right for you, period, regardless of what anybody else thinks. Get to know your higher Self through your body. It will be the best investment you ever make.
