If you’re unfamiliar with the term “higher self,” it refers to the real you. Your higher self is you, in a state of total consciousness. Those who adhere to the concept of a higher self believe that the you who is living here on Earth is simply a projection of the consciousness of your higher self. Your higher self is a spiritual and more complete you, holding the key to your life plan.
When your higher self reaches out to comfort you or guide you, it’s important to listen. When your higher self attempts to send you a message, it may come as a gut feeling or a deep intuition, so trusting yourself and staying in tune with your body can help you keep an open mind.
Here are six things your higher self wants you to remember:
1. Make Time for Meditation
Whether you can free 5-10 minutes in the morning or 20 minutes before bed, find time to meditate. Make it a priority to tune into your inner world and find awareness. Be willing to accept whatever comes up during your meditation, as it may be the best connection to your higher self you can achieve.
2. You are Unique
Your strengths, weaknesses, quirks, achievements and flaws all make you who you are, and that person is more than enough. Remember that you are unique, and you should explore all of your talents, gifts and passions. Taking the path less traveled may not make you popular, but it will result in your happiness, which is much more important.
3. Don’t Forget to Have Fun
We all have responsibilities, but it’s important not to take everything so seriously. Nothing should ever get in the way of your happiness. Find what makes your soul happy and make it a priority. Explore, dream, discover!
4. Turn Negatives Into Positives
Negativity robs you of your joy. Regardless of the situation, search for the positive aspects. Don’t allow yourself to dwell in negativity. Even when it seems difficult, try to remain positive. If you aren’t happy with your situation, make the changes necessary to improve it!
5. Love Yourself, Always
Finding self-love and self-acceptance opens the door to finding joy in every aspect of your life. If you don’t learn to love yourself first, your relationships with others will suffer. Choosing to love yourself and find joy in who you are is a selfless act. Without self-love and self-acceptance, you will have no energy to change the world in a positive way.
6. Learn From Every Experience
Surrounding yourself with positive energy is one of the best ways to keep negative people out of your life, but sometimes, they find their way in. At some point, you’re going to get hurt, be disappointed and things won’t go your way. But holding a grudge or harboring negative feelings will only continue to bring you down. When life isn’t being so kind, try to remember that everything you go through is a learning experience. In some way, shape or form, your struggles will only make you stronger.
