The term Higher Self has been used by many scholars, yogis, teachers and psychologists in their lectures and teachings. However, Higher Self is not a term that is widely known to all people. Therefore, we first must define what Higher Self is, what it represents, and what its main purpose is.
What Is Higher Self?
Higher Self cannot be specifically defined because there is no universal definition for it. Its personification is different from one person to another. As all people are different in many ways, so is the way in which they connect with their Higher Self. For example, your Higher Self may come in a form of an energy you experience throughout your body, a very bright light you see or feel, or in a form of a man or a woman. You may even sense a presence of something in your mind, feel a certain sensation, or hear a sound. People are amazingly unique individuals and their Higher Selves reflect their true uniqueness.
Connecting To Higher Self
Remember that Higher Self is within you and is integral part of you. It is a collection of all your characteristics. When you get in touch with your Higher Self, then you will awaken your inner spirit. Your spirit takes you on a journey to your wholeness, boosts your growth as a person and leads you to fulfilling your life potential.
Connecting with your Higher Self is not something that can be done instantly. It requires strong commitment, discipline, long practice and self-awareness. Many things must come into sync before you connect with your inner self.
So what is the best way to start working on yourself to connect with Higher Self? Yoga and deep meditation can certainly help you in that. Yoga and meditation is all about making connection with yourself and your inner spirit. Inside all of us there is a spirit that waits to be uncovered. Seeking Higher Self is searching for balance between your mind, body and soul. Spiritual practices like meditation are very important when searching for your true potential and connecting with your inner spirit.
Higher Self and Living Happy Life
Another thing to remember is to always find happiness in the small things you discover when you make connection with your inner self. Most important thing is the journey not the destination. When you start practicing to find balance in your life, you will awake things you did not know you possess. You will likely discover some good or bad characteristics, but good thing is that you can work on them along the way to perfect them.
Many people search for their Higher Self their entire lives and never managed to find it. Do not get bothered too much if you are not succeeding at first. As mentioned, patience and discipline are very important. Practice them every day, meditate whenever you can, perfect your qualities and find balance between everything you do in life. That is the shortest way to enlightenment.
