Connecting With Your Higher (intuitive) Self
When you want to listen to a particular radio station, you tune your radio to that station, tuning in to a particular frequency. Same when you want to watch a particular show on TV. It is the frequency you tune into that determines what you hear and what you see.
Our brains operate in very much the same way, except that we have only two stations we can tune into – the ego station and the higher-self (Intuition) station.
The ego station is the station that originates in the programmed mind, which contains all our limiting beliefs that create our fears. The ego station is our wounded self, our false self – the protected self we learned to be as we were growing up and needed to find ways to have control over getting love, avoiding pain, and feeling safe. Our ego wounded self is a closed circuit – it operates on old information that we acquired as we were growing up, information that is no longer relevant or even true. It is not open to new information. It is not open to truth.
The higher-self (intuitive) station is the station that taps into the unlimited information from the universe – information that is beyond the programmed mind. The higher-self station taps into the Source of truth that is always here to guide us in our highest good.
How do you tune your frequency to your higher-self station?
We have all been given a “dial” that either tunes us to the low frequency of our ego station, or to the high frequency of our higher-self station. This dial is our INTENT.
We have only two intents to choose from:
- The intent to get love and avoid pain with some form of controlling behaviour.
- The intent to learn about loving ourselves and others.
The intent to have control over getting love and avoiding pain lowers our frequency and keeps us stuck in our limited mind – our ego mind. When we choose this intent/frequency, we are stuck thinking the thoughts – the lies – and taking the unloving actions that create fear, anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, stress, anger, jealousy, resentment, and so on. The ego frequency is the frequency of being a victim. We choose this frequency when we choose the intent to have control over getting love and avoiding pain, rather than trusting, allowing and living in the present moment.
At any moment, we can change our minds and choose the intent to learn and listen to our ‘Higher self’. We can choose to learn about our ego mind rather than stay stuck in it. The moment we choose the intent to learn then we open ourselves up to what is possible, to new opportunities. This is like moving out of the limitations of our personal computer files and accessing and the whole Internet – only better. While some of the information on the Internet is true and some is not, all of the information we receive from the higher-self (Intuitive) station is true for you and not conditioned by old beliefs or prejudices.
The only thing that stops us from choosing the higher-self station is our addiction to control. The ego mind wants control over our feelings, over others’ feelings and actions, and over the outcome of things, it wants certainty. When your desire for control is greater than your desire to be loving to yourself and others, and greater than your desire to live in truth, you will remain stuck in the ego station. Life is a changing dynamic experiment with very little certainty other than you are born and will die.
The ego station tells us that we can have control over things that we actually have no control over – like others and outcomes. Our feelings are an inner guidance system, letting us know when we are on track or off track in our thinking and behaviour, so suppressing them with addictions, bad habits, etc. only lead to more pain.
You will discover great joy when you choose the intent to learn, rather than the intent to be certain and right. When we learn to let go of the outcome or events and live by following that ‘intuitive’ guide, we all have within us, them life works, it’s easier, better and more fun.
You will know that ‘Intuitive/Higher self’ within you, its the little nudge you get when you know something doesn’t feel right. You might not be able to explain it, or event know what it is, but you will feel it. My advice is, ignore it at you pearl.
Be kind to yourself and as always get in touch if you are struggling.
