What if there was one person who knew you in every lifetime you ever lived? They knew your purpose, your flaws and your deepest passions. And, they have been your best friend since the beginning of your soul. Well, there is such a person, your higher self! Your higher self is part of your soul and has been with you through the good and bad, every lesson and heart ache and joyous occasion you have ever experienced. One of the most powerful tools that you can develop at any stage in your spiritual path is to create a relationship with your higher self. Your higher self is your highest level of connection with the divine source and resides in your Etheric Body. Imagine your higher self as a direct link to universal information specifically related to you, your purpose and life path. It is your total soul consciousness. It knows everything about you from every lifetime you have ever lived and ever will including information on soul contracts and life plans. It is a constant part of your life that you can choose to incorporate into your everyday.
Each of us has a higher self, and we all have the ability to work with them, get knowledge and life answers from them. Our highest self has nothing but pure unconditional love for us, which means that nothing but love can exist within that relationship. So, when you are working with that element of yourself, it is important to know that you can trust the guidance and information that is given to you. Where there is pure love, there can be no fear. Therefore, there is no EGO involved when it comes to the workings of the highest self. All the information you receive is coming directly from a pure divine source.
Before connecting with your higher self, you should also be open to the fact that your highest self is neither male nor female, but a source that may present themselves to you as either male or female regardless of what gender you are in this lifetime. This means that a female in this lifetime can have a higher self that comes through as male and vice versa. Every human being has male and female energy that resides in our soul. For example, a male that is balanced with his male and female energy will have 60% male energy and 40% female energy roughly, and a female will have 60% female and 40% male energy. Our highest self resonates with all lifetime energies. So, if you are female in this lifetime and your higher self comes through as a male on a soul level you may find that your soul purpose and path has areas that you may need to work on that require more male energy traits. If you are a male in this lifetime and your higher self presents itself as a female, you may find your soul purpose is related to more female energy traits. Here are some traits of male and female energies that may help you relate better to your higher self form.
Earth, water elements
Air, fire elements
There are a few ways that you can learn how to connect and get to know your higher self, here is a list of some good options for beginning contact with them.
- Meditation/ Guided Meditation: This is my personal favorite method for connecting and working with your higher self. Meditation can be the most powerful and effective form to receive the information that is most important for you to hear at the time from your higher self. You will find that if you have some experience in meditation even as a beginner you will be able to do some journeying in your meditation work to meet with your higher self. If it is your first time ever contacting your higher self, you may find that a guided meditation specific for contacting your higher self may be a good way to start. Guided mediation is good because it walks you through the process and creates a safe positive environment for you to feel comfortable with contacting your higher self, allowing for an easier time contacting your higher self in the future. At Elysian Life Design, we do offer a guided meditation service that allows you to connect with your higher self. In your first “connecting to the divine session” you will be walked through an amazing one on one experience with your higher self and be able to find out key factors of your life path and purpose, or how to take the next steps in your life. You will also be given insight on how to work with your higher self on your own any time you want. For more information about this service please go to: http://www.elysianld.com/services.html.

For more questions, or to schedule an appointment, please contact us via: http://www.elysianld.com/contact-us.html
- Journaling: This is a good method for keeping track of conversations that you may have with your higher self, as well as providing the opportunity to keep track of questions you may want to ask your higher self in future conversations. While writing in your journal you may also get insight from your higher self if you are advanced in contacting your higher self. This method will enable you to, go back and review any information your higher self may have given you that you may find helpful for other areas of your life path.
- Mindfulness: Being mindful is a conscious decision to be aware of yourself and your actions in the very moment that you are doing them. When you are mindful, you are creating a positive environment for a pure connection with your higher self. By being in the present moment you can allow the noise of your mind to become quiet and review choices you are making and how they affect you on all levels.
- Dreams: Just as we can receive visitations from past loved ones in dreams, we can receive visitations from our higher self. Setting the intention before you go to sleep to connect and receive information from your higher self will allow the communication to flow in your dreams. When trying to have conversations with your higher self in your dreams, you may want to set specific intentions for your communication in the dream. For example, perhaps you are having a hard time finding out what your life purpose is, or looking to change careers; those are good areas to tell your higher self you need guidance in for that particular dream.
- Spending time with yourself: Set time aside weekly to do a higher self check in, and what a better way than spending time with yourself. It can be 5 minutes, 30 minutes an hour or in between. But, during this time review the areas you are working on with your higher self. How are you integrating any information your higher self is giving you in to your life? How are the methods you are using working for you? How are you incorporating your higher self more in to your everyday, and where do you need adjustments? These are all questions that you can ask yourself during this time, plus any additional questions you see fit for your relationship with your higher self. By having weekly time, you will be able to track your progress and become more aware of all the layers of your soul, mental, physical and spiritual.
Your highest self will often present itself from other religions, races, light forms or ancient civilizations. Growing up I always related to various ancient civilizations that I thought for sure would have been represented when I meet my higher self. I was wrong! The first time I met my higher self was in a soul retrieval session. I was doing some journey work and came across a door that led me into one of the most beautiful rooms I had even seen. It was my inner temple that was filled with shades of reds, golds, purples, blues and so much more. Then, once I became open, my higher self made herself known. On a soul level, my spirit relates to Hinduism and appeared to me with her presence as such. I would never have expected my higher self to be of the Hindu persuasion. But, as I learned more about that culture and my life path, I realized that it makes sense for my soul to resonate with Hinduism.
The best part about learning how to connect with your higher self is that each time you do, you will develop a deeper and deeper relationship. After a few times of using the method of your choice, you will be able to connect to your higher self within a moment. You will be able to visually and mentally go to your sanctuary where the two of you can talk and you can receive the inner wisdom you need. There are no rules on how many time you can contact your higher self, or what you can and cannot include your higher self in. Ideally you will want to connect with your higher self every day
Your higher self wants to connect with you and help guide you. So, now is the time to start forming that connection with the purest divine form of yourself and bring your level of Universal and Self understanding to the ultimate level.
