“There comes a time when the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge but can never prove how it got there.” ~ Albert Einstein
If you’ve ever experienced a piece of writing, music, art, etc., “speaking to your soul”, you’ll know exactly how it feels to have something move you in a way that the mind can’t logically explain.
Whether it be the feeling of chills when you hear a particular song, or even an instant warm feeling that overtakes you when you listen to a spiritual talk, there is undoubtedly a way that our body shows us that it “resonates” with something even if we have no idea why.
There is a quote that says, “you’ll know the truth by the way it feels,” and this is a perfect way to explain how our heart points us in the direction of our soul’s highest growth, by giving us the feeling of positive and good emotions when we come across something that contains universal knowledge that can only be understood by a consciousness much higher than what our human brain operates from.
If we know that we exist in a time in which we are experiencing the earth shifting into a higher consciousness and humans as a species are evolving on a spiritual level, it is no surprise that our higher selves often send us signs and clues to assist in helping us to achieve these more awakened states of consciousness.
Simply put, we are trying to wake ourselves up. Often we may hear someone say something or we may even hear our own voice ask something that sends us into an aha moment or gives us a broader perspective on an issue we’ve been trying to work on.
The questions below are meant to do just that. While you ask yourselves these questions don’t worry if your mind can’t come up with a logical answer, just feel the sensation in your body after you ponder them. If nothing else, they will allow you to ponder something you may have never considered, which will open your energy field up to receiving guidance or wisdom from your higher self.
Five questions that will help awaken your higher consciousness:
1) What if there is no ultimate “truth”?
Which means, all this effort trying to convince others of your personal truth or to fight with people telling them their perspective is not the “truth” really only causes us more frustration.
People can only see the truth as they know it, and we cannot force people to see from a different or higher level of consciousness. The more higher wisdom we attain we see that being our truth is really the only way to help assist in the shift of consciousness on this planet.
Some people may be attracted and want to know more, and some may call us crazy, but fighting with people over a truth they are clinging desperately to, often proves to be pointless.
2) How do I know I’m not the most powerful being in the universe?
“Awakening to your true nature is like a gentle hurricane. You have no idea where it started or how it found you. You just wake up one day in the burning heart of a paradox, and realize that you are not a mere guardian or administrator of your life, but your own co-founder, CEO, and chief executive creator. Nobody, nothing owns you anymore.” ~ Andrea Balt
When we begin to align with the power that is inside of us, and that has always been there, we begin to see that nothing can overtake us or overpower us unless we have on some level agreed to it.
While it may seem as though things are happening to us, and we are a victim of circumstances, when we are more rooted in our own power, we can see that life is not only happening through us, but for us. People and situations are being brought into our external reality to assist in our emotional growth, spiritual evolution and emotional healing.
3) What is the part of me that requires no effort to “be”?
At our lowest common denominator we see the part of us that is already awake, a part of us that perceives, yet cannot be perceived. The awakening process is actually showing us that we are already awake, we just didn’t realize it.
This part of us is the most simple and effortless part of our being because it needs to be nothing, it strives for nothing because it is actually already perfect.
4) What if I stopped judging anything as “wrong”?
“Everyone is a manifestation of the divine, regardless of their state of consciousness or form they’ve chosen to manifest their light. You are your higher self.” ~ Mynzah
A huge part of our suffering in life stems from the belief that there is something happening that shouldn’t be. The more we place our judgments on aspects of ourselves (such as natural emotions, thoughts, or our behaviors), we actually create a space for the ego to be empowered and flourish.
But if we believe that everything stems from the same source, (and you may call this “God”, “the universe”, or “source”) we come to see that all things that are judged are only being judged because of our own belief systems.
There’s a reason all spiritual texts speak of unconditional love and accepting ourselves as we are. This reason is because no emotion or behavior is inherently wrong.
It is only our ego that judges it as so. When we begin to accept ourselves the way we are without judgment, we will find that unsavory behaviors will fall away naturally. Negative and painful emotions will drop off on their own because when they are not being judged, and only being loved, they have no power over us. It will begin to root us into a higher vibration, based in love, which actually allows our life to move along with more ease.
5) After I am gone from here, what will still matter to me?
This question may provoke us to look inside and ask ourselves if there are trivial things that we may be worrying and stressing about that won’t even matter ultimately. And dare I say, almost everything falls into this category. Are dead souls still stressing about that late payment to the electric company? Are they still wondering why so and so didn’t text us back? Probably not.
Of course in order to participate in this realm we will have to pay bills and maintain healthy friendship’s but if we find that we are unbalanced in matters such as these (worrying too much about something that we may not have the power to change in that moment or at all even), it may be time to reevaluate how seriously we may be taking all this.
By following our joy we will find that perceived problems that we thought were the end of the world really weren’t and things have a way of working themselves out if we allow help in from our higher consciousness.
