Each of us is connected with the Divine. The Higher Self within us far transcends the understanding of our conscious minds. This is the power that all the great geniuses and teachers of history have accessed. It is also the place of magic and miracle in our lives. Here are the seven key steps to contact it:

1. Belief & Expectation: Transform Your World View!

The first step is to believe that you have a Higher Self to establish communication with! Then expect every day that this communication will improve as you focus diligently on inner growth. Without these two essential pre-requisites, it is hard to achieve anything at all in life, even on the physical level. For inner growth, these two qualities are essential. So set a goal to achieve contact with the Higher Self, review that goal daily, and maintain your purpose with determination until success is yours.

We are brought up with a primarily materialistic world view that neglects the role of Spirit. To establish close contact with spiritual realms, we need to have our entire being – conscious and subconscious – congruent with our goal. In any major activity/goal, you have to establish the rules of the game and the way it is played. Contacting your Higher Self is the same. Therefore, seek out writings and teachers that expand your understanding of the universe as fundamentally being a realm of Consciousness and Mind.

2. Solitude & Meditation

Make regular time for yourself where you can be totally alone. A quiet place is preferable. Just sit quietly with no expectations. Do nothing. This may feel very uncomfortable and strange in the beginning. Persist. You give time and space for the inner voice to make itself heard. It will do so either during that quiet time, or else during the events of the day. A synchronistic event will occur; someone will tell you exactly what you need to hear; you will get a sudden flash of insight. All the great geniuses of history have found times of regular solitude and silence for themselves. You should too.

In meditation, you work to discipline your mind and silence the internal chatter that constantly fill it. You create a pure vessel for the Higher Self to fill. Following your breath is an excellent meditation discipline, as is concentrating upon a candle flame. Or visualize a golden ball of light in your Solar Plexus that fills your whole body with energy and healing. There are many practices that you can study and use.

3. Journal

Record your feelings, emotions, dreams and insights every day in a journal. This will help you to come into closer contact with your inner intuitive depths. You can ask the Higher Self questions here, and then later on record whatever insights/..answers you receive. If you do this regularly with belief and expectation, you WILL receive the answers you need.

4. Inner Dialogue

Conduct a regular inner dialogue with your Higher Self. For the next 40 days, decide to keep in contact throughout the day. Say to your Higher Self, “I know you are there and I want to get to know you and pay attention to you. Please begin to speak to me and guide my life.” Don’t worry if this dialogue is entirely one-way to begin with. Remember that you have been out of touch for decades. It takes a while to clear the cobwebs! Persist with this inner dialogue as if talking to a friend – chatting, asking questions, sharing your hopes – and begin to listen for answers. They will come.

5. Life Lessons

Look upon life as a Mystery School. Believe that the whole of your life – events, situations and people – has been structured PRECISELY in order to teach you exactly what you need to know right now. Approach life as if the whole of creation is conspiring to do you good! Whenever something happens in your life, for good or ill, ask yourself what the lesson is for you. Even unpleasant people/..situations have been deliberately placed there as a challenge to help you grow. As you begin to view life as a drama in which you are play the starring role, the role of the Higher Self will become increasingly evident in your life. Record your findings in your journal.

6. Dreams

Expect your Higher Self to speak to you in dreams. Before going to sleep, do some stretching and bending to relax your body completely. Ask your Higher Self a question and expect an answer. When you wake up, recall whatever you can of your dream and write it down in your journal. If you are not used to remembering dreams, this will take time and persistence. However, with patience, you will begin to recall your dreams AND receive answers from your Higher Self.

7. Mindfulness

Focus upon living more and more in the present, on the NOW. When you are eating, be aware that you are eating. When you walk, know that you are walking. The only real moment is now – the past is gone forever and the future has yet to be. Therefore, work to clear your mind of concerns, illusions and extrapolations… Clear the mental clutter from the mind and create space for the Higher Self to fill.

Patience Is The Catalyst To Progress!

Remember, you may have spent your entire life out of touch with Source. Therefore, it takes time to learn how to re-establish contact. Anything worth doing takes time and practice. Be vigilant and practice these seven steps every day, and you will receive the answers you need. Remember: The Higher Self WANTS to be in contact. In fact, to even speak of it as someone apart from you is contradictory.

The Higher Self IS you! The real you.

So get in touch with YOU!

  1. Wonderful post!!!! Life is a meditation, every step one makes one is meditation. Where the challenge comes in is, the meditation on the right knowledge, the right facts, a right or good schemata. Each of us is at a different evolutionary stage. One’s numerology of one’s name, the letter of one’s name (a 9-year process and stage), one is undergoing at one’s particular age (added to the numbers of the previous letters and 9-year stages of one’s name), is one’s evolutionary steps through challenges and mastery. Understanding the astrological aspects in one’s individual chart (relocation chart, marital chart, employment chart), one will see where various changes impact one’s life, the nation’s and the world’s stages. Buddhists, Hindus, and every major religion has its basis in astrology, but Christianity and its churches have hidden this. Those who have studied Western Scriptures and astrology will make the connection with their inner eye. The Hindu Vedas are based on astrology and the gods and goddesses are the astrological aspects which flow through each of us. Therefore, in order to reach even higher states of seeing and being, one has to have good solid information about one’s inner being, through one’s astrological charts.” In all of your getting get knowledge, get understanding, get wisdom”. “Ask, Seek, and Knock and the doors will be opened”. You have to know where to ask, where to seek, and the door upon which to knock. The oldest religions in the world show the pattern. Western astrology, numerology, and positive words have as much power as foreign “sacred words”, understand this, and utilize these tools. It is a process, it takes time, but if you are going to meditate beyond what you want to receive in material terms, you’ve got to address each area of your life, understand why it is the way it is according to your personal astrology and numerology tools, thus is the foundation upon which one transcends and ascends. Life is a meditation, but each of us must know the right things to meditate upon, the right knowledge. Yes, thee is synchronicity, and yes, things unfold in a miraculous manner, but how much more meaningful when you have a greater understanding of how and why and where.
