What is your higher self? You’ve probably heard people talk about it or read articles or blog posts that use the term, but what does it really mean?

Your higher self is the divine part of you that, through your intuition, guides you through opportunities. When you’re going through a difficult situation, it isn’t an easy path. You may feel upset about where you are or what’s happening. That is when your higher self is the most helpful – and yet, that’s often the time when your higher self is hardest to connect with.

When you focus on what’s not working, it’s hard to hear your higher self. The worry and negativity drown out the messages your higher self is trying to send you.

Where is the higher self?

A common question I get is, “Where is the higher self?” It can be helpful for people to visualize their higher self if they have an understanding of its location! Your seven chakras continue upward and when you call your higher self it “sits” on your eighth chakra. If you call your higher self, you’ll get a part of it – it is so big, there isn’t room for all of it! But part is all you need. It travels and puts everything in place for you.

What can you do?

Strengthening your connection with your higher self is simple! Look in your daily routine. In each moment, are you looking at what’s not working? Or are you looking for opportunities to change and bring positive energy to your life? Focus on amusement and the joy it brings will make you vibrate in your higher self!
The more you call your higher self, the more connected you will feel to it. Like intuition, time and practice are all that’s needed.

Notice how you are being – every single moment of your day. Start a journal! Pay attention to the situations that are making you upset? What is making you happy? The first step is to be aware!
Do something about it! Once you know how you are feeling, shift your energy.

Notice how you are being with others. What are the seeds you’re planting with the people you know? Not everyone stays with you forever. Sometimes people come for a short time, you learn from them, and then they move on.

What would the bigger version of me do in this situation? How do you want to move through the situation? The higher understanding can see things from afar. When we are in the middle of it, it is harder to detach ourselves from the situation.


A final note for you to consider is drama. If you are living with a lot of drama, it is harder for you to hear your higher self. You’re too focused on the drama and you can’t see what is right here! When you are so focused on the problems, you are blind to the solution. Assess your environment following the steps above and open yourself up to your higher self!
