Communicating with Your Higher Self

Tuning into and listening to that all-knowing part of yourself

By

We can all learn to have a very real and physical communication with our Higher Selves. The process is not as difficult as one would think, it just takes a little bit of practice and patience. When we develop a two-way communication with our Higher Selves, we can learn to follow this guidance so that we can live to our fullest potential.

Are You Listening?

We’ve all experience hunches, or gut feelings that seemingly come from out of the blue, telling us something that doesn’t always appear to be logical. We’ve all experienced moments when we choose to follow that guidance, even if it didn’t make any sense, only to find out, there was a reason why we were guided in that direction. This is our Higher Self talking. These knowings that we receive aren’t coming from nowhere, they are coming directly from the part of ourselves that is in Spirit who can see the full picture even when we cannot. If we could learn to tap into that knowing part, we would be able to bypass many difficult lessons and the flow of our life would be much freer and fluid than otherwise possible.

I’ll share with you a personal experience of what I’m talking about. My partner and I were looking for a new place to live. We began the process in the usual way; looking through newspapers, online listings, etc. We spent a lot of time and energy making phone calls, driving to potential new homes, talking to potential landlords, all to no real avail. Nothing that we saw would really suit our needs and wants. After several weeks of frustration, we made a conscious choice to be divinely guided.

One day, I suggested that we should just start driving around the area where we wanted to live, and if one of us got an intuitive hit to turn down a particular street then we would follow that.

Within a few hours or less we had found four apartments that would have suited what we were looking for. Finally, I had a hunch to turn right. After driving a block or two, we finally came across two duplexes that had For Rent signs out in front. We wrote down the phone numbers for both, but the second one felt like it was “the one.” We were looking for a place that had a “healing vibe” to it because we are both practitioners of energy work. Even from the outside, this house had this energy, and we were excited. We knew from that moment, that this was the place.

About an hour later the landlord called us back. We went to check the place out and it was perfect! We knew from the moment we walked in, that this was the place we were looking for. We gave our new landlords a deposit, signed the lease, and went on our merry way. Three weeks later we took possession and started creating our healing space, and have been happy with our new home ever since.

Following Divine Guidance

When we first were looking for a new home, we just did the typical things that people do when looking for a place to live, and it didn’t work. We spent weeks of looking and getting frustrated by the process. As soon as we consciously decided to follow divine guidance, we found a place in literally a few hours. To top it off, we not only found our new home quickly, but it was a very enjoyable experience in the process as well and completely stress-free.

This is what can be accomplished when you partner with your Divine self and trust that it will guide you to where you need to be. The benefits of developing a conscious communication with your Higher Self is not only useful, but absolutely necessary if we are to even come close to becoming the glorious being that we are all meant to embody. This is the goal of every soul incarnate and nothing less.

Once we accomplish this we can begin to live as we were meant to: As spiritual beings, having a human experience. We can then live our fullest and grandest expressions of ourselves anytime we choose and learn to manifest our reality simply by choosing our experiences. We can develop our true gifts and find fulfillment beyond our imagination. The only way to achieve this is to get to know and accept ourselves for what we truly are. This takes time, patience and diligence. It is not something that is just handed to us. We must make the choice and do the work and heal the parts of ourselves that believe us to be limited and small. This is not always an easy process, but is the most rewarding one that any of us could have, and it is the reason we are all here. This is what enlightenment means.
