Your Higher Self is simply the Divine aspect of you, which is in fact always a part of you, but which most of us forget about during our busy lives. When you are connected with your higher self, decisions become more clear, we feel more emotionally at peace, grounded, and empowered.
I'm going to share with you one means of connecting with your Higher Self using a guided visualization which you can do in a matter of minutes. This is a method which should become a habit before it fully clicks, though you can certainly have good experiences immediately. The more you practice, the stronger your experience will be.
HOW TO CONNECT:
Now, enter a visualization which you'll create just for yourself. Let the current scene fade away and start creating a garden. . Create a bench within the garden. Sit upon the bench and spend several minutes there in your own space of your Creation.
From here you can ask your Higher Self to communicate to you. You can continue to envision it as a beam of light over your head, or you can also picture an actual person. If you can't see a person, imagine what you'd like your Higher Self to look like. Your Higher Self will then assume and animate this form. You can get comfortable with your Higher Self in this place.
When your Higher Self communicates sometimes it will use words. Other times it send rays of light, and or it will also sometimes simply send information your mind doesn't yet hear, but which will be planted like seeds in your subconscious, and will become apparent later on. Simply receive. Express thanks.
When you are finished, once again, visually connect to your crown, and then to your feet. Take a deep breath. End with a closing gesture of your choice (use the same one always - open and close can be different but keep it the same each time). Then tap both feet on the ground. This signals to your physical body you're finished.
The more you spend time in your space, the steadier it will become. Be clear, the intention of this space is to connect with your Higher Self. If an unexpected or uncomfortable vision arises, simply re-state your purpose for creating the space: to visit with your Higher Self. The space you've created responds to your intention, and practice helps solidify the space for you.
Record any interesting experiences or information that arises during your meditation so that you remember it.
