I am so Grateful for Guidance from my Higher Self

I am so grateful.

I am so grateful that I have practiced communicating with, and opening to the guidance of my Higher Self on a regular, consistent basis.

I am so grateful that I can hear, see, smell, receive, feel, touch, surrender to, and interpret this ongoing communication that flows to me unceasingly from my Higher Self.


If January was about sitting back (read more), then February was about bounding forward!  Things came together all of a sudden in February for my husband and I to take action on a home renovation project that has been on the vision board for years and years.

And, my Higher Self is here with me every step of the way.

 “Throw this away?  Get this shredded?”  A very certain “yes” or “no” is present.

 “Whom should I give this to?” A feeling about a specific person or organization shows up, and I’ve noticed it is appreciatively accepted.

 “Where is such and such?”  I can see clearly the box where it’s been packed, or the location in my house or car where the lost object is hiding.

These seem sort of trivial things when I write them here, but what I know is that my life flows easier, decisions seem clearer, and stress and worry are almost non-existent as I lean into this treasured skill that perhaps I had come to take for granted.

What it means is that I am actually living in each present moment these days.

I stay in the present moment even as I purge and release my hold on the past, and even as we create plans for this project’s future.  My foundation of trust in my Higher Self is being beautifully illuminated for me to see and appreciate.  What I am recognizing here is an outward manifestation of the inward embodiment of my Essence, fully allowing myself as a Spiritual Being to be doing

HA! This is what it looks like to “incarnate” as your Spirit.  It looks like every day life on the outside.  Yet there is this beautiful harmonic chord of peace, vibrancy, excitement, joy, happiness, curiosity, freedom, and more, on the inside.  How sweet is that?

I am so grateful. 

Ideas for Opening to the Guidance of Your Higher Self:

  • Sink your awareness into your heart space, close your eyes and take several deep breaths.  Ask any question you want to of your Higher Self and wait expectantly for an answer to “bubble up” from deep inside.  Build your foundation of trust by beginning with little, non-consequential questions such as “What is the optimal dish for me to order?” or “Which email is best for me to read first?”  Play with the results by looking for the fun synchronicities that show up when you follow this guidance, even on little things.
  • Are you interested in exploring the path of embodying your Essence?  I am looking for beta testers for my e-course, The Spiritual Explorer’s Path, that will be ready for feedback in about 4 – 6 weeks.  At the completion of this e-course you will feel your Spiritual (Higher) Self fully integrated into your physical, moment-to-moment existence.  In exchange for your thoughtful insights about this product, you can receive it for FREE by completing the form below.

The Simplest ? Accesses Immediate Guidance

How do you know if you are in connection with your Higher Self? The simplest, most direct path is to ask yourself, “What am I feeling?”  And simply put, if you are feeling good, excited, enlivened, appreciative, passionate, happy, peaceful, or any other emotion that feels yummy, you are in alignment/connection with your Higher Self.

To notice what is happening in your emotional energy body is a simple way to begin to recognize communication with your Higher Self. Feeling good indicates you’re in alignment with your divine guidance system and headed in the direction of your highest good.  Feeling ornery, frustrated, angry, jealous, bitter, resentful, or any other emotion that doesn’t feel “good” means the guidance from your Higher Self indicates you’ve veered off your path.

Esther Hicks, who channels “Abraham” (a collection of non-physical beings), explains the importance of using this inner guidance system that is so present in every NOW moment.

The past several months I’ve been paying close attention to my emotional energy body to observe its guidance around whether I am engaged with life from my authentic self, or if I have fallen back into a core illusion of powerlessness.  Prior to the Feminine Power course I took in the Fall, I was clueless that I ever felt “powerless,” yet there in the behavior list were many recognizable traits. Some of these traits I had “worked on” for years, but apparently not at the root cause.

Then right on cue the book, Spiritual Partnership by Gary Zukav, synchronistically came into my hands.  The focus of this book is learning to recognize emotions that stem from powerlessness, and those that indicate authentic power.  Emotions of anger, fear, jealousy, feeling inferior or superior to others, entitled, vengeful, resentful, or needing to please are all associated with powerlessness.  Feeling content, appreciative, caring, loving, non-judgmental, joyful, and other good feelings are associated with authentic power.  (Sound familiar?)

And one more synchronous piece dropped into place.  Using an exercise from the New Knowledge for the New Age (studied in the Consciousness Playground), I experienced myself while in deep meditation as my “first born cell” taking on the game (the illusion) of powerlessness as a means of hiding my divine self from my human self.   Wowie Zowie! Interestingly, the emotion that surfaced was deep grief, not for the losses that powerlessness wrought, but because I would no longer be able to play that game and not recognize it as a game.  It was the grief of believing something so strongly (like believing in Santa Claus!), then discovering the illusion and wanting desperately to turn back the clock and “not know” again.  Our core illusory games are so seductive because they are so comfortable and familiar.

In the awakening journey, one can’t go backwards, only forwards.  And so I move forward by letting go of the biggest game I’ve every played using my emotional energy body as a direct line to my Higher Self who is guiding me through the complex playing field I have created.

What is the illusory game you are playing to hide your divine spirit from your human self? You can begin to deconstruct your illusion and reconstruct deep recognition of your core self with your emotional guidance system and one simple question, “What am I feeling?

Want to play with your emotional energy body?

  • Set your watch to chime on the hour and when it does, ask yourself, “What am I feeling?”
  • Observe as many emotions flowing through you as you can notice while considering a specific situation.
  • What emotions support you in feeling your authentic power?  What emotions are indicative of your illusory game?  Can you recognize when each is present?
  • You have a choice as to which emotions you pay attention to.  Make your choices moment to moment.

Imagination is Your Simple Access to Higher Guidance

“If I only knew then what I know now” is often used looking back with regret at past choices.  But, what would show up in our lives if we did the opposite and brought forward the innocence and energy of our youth, and coupled that with the wisdom of our current maturity and beliefs?

Recently I played with just that sort of reversal and imagined, “If I could feel the way I felt then, knowing what I know now, what would be interesting to me?”  I asked this question of myself in response to a grand new experiment happening in the Consciousness Playground where we are beta testing the “youthening quantum information packets” delivered energetically by Wendy Down.  I wanted to gain clarity on my underlying intentions for participating in this experiment.

Easy to think that it would be nice to look younger!  However, to get beyond this conditioned response and see what my Higher Self had to say about the matter I tapped into my mental energy body.  One of the best ways to circumvent the “thinking” mind, which is our lower vibrating mental energy body, and move into its higher vibrating expression is to use imagination. An easy tool to shift into deeper communication is to simply imagine the best possible outcome. When you use your imagination, you typically soften the resistance of your thinking mind, which then allows your Higher Guidance to flow in with ideas, images, colors, new stories, and feelings that create the foundation for manifesting your future experience.  If you are inspired by your imagination, then that’s your Higher Self.  If you feel fearful (worst case scenario thinking), then you are engaged with your egoic mind.

Here’s what showed up for me when I played with imagining what “youthening” would bring me:

Do you want to play in the quantum field of moving beyond the thoughts and beliefs that “everybody” agrees with? You’ll find plenty of other co-pioneers in the Consciousness Playground that enjoy pushing the boundaries of both our individual and culturally conditioned beliefs.  And the best part is that we do this in ways that feel natural and easy, using our own daily lives as our lab.

How You Can Tap Into Your Mental Energy Body for Communication:

  1. Begin with an easy topic, one that you would like some guidance around, but it doesn’t have a big emotional hook in it.
  2. Take a few moments to move yourself to an inner focus by breathing deeply into your low abdomen and back.
  3. Now, let your imagination run wild around the “best possible outcome” for your situation.
  4. Several stories might pop up.  Wait for the one that gives you a little zing, one that feels really good.
  5. Now, build on those good feelings by including as many “best possible” specifics as you can.  Who is with you?  Where are you?  What does the environment feel like?  What emotions are present?  What are you doing?
  6. Keep your thoughts moving toward those that inspire you.
  7. When you’re ready, open your eyes and make some notes about your experience.
  8. What action steps do you now feel inspired to take, if any, that move you in the direction of this outcome?

Body Template is Easy Access to Higher Guidance

Did you experiment with using any of your energy bodies to receive guidance from your Higher Self?  Check out my last post for these four powerful portals if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

I believe that Higher Guidance is constantly in flow to us at all times and it’s a simple thing to receive.  The biggest barrier I’ve seen in my clients, and probably for myself in the past, is an expectation that their Higher Guidance should look a certain way.  Usually the expectation is to hear a voice.  What I now know is that Higher Guidance comes in many forms and to have an expectation about what it might look like is to limit yourself severely from receiving the font of guidance that is constantly streaming to you in all sorts of ways.

Here is a short video about how I used my physical energy body as a resource for guidance.  Maybe you’ll be surprised by how I played with receiving this guidance.

Want to learn more ways to tap into your Higher Guidance? What I demonstrate in the video is but one of the many simple tools I share in Play 4 Guidance.  My workshop is full of playful and simple, yet very powerful, exercises to receive clear, concrete and action-oriented information.  While you build your multisensory skill set, you learn to recognize a wide range of guidance, all of it completely individualized because it is coming from your Higher Self.  Won’t you join me?

Post a comment about your experience with this tool and receive The 4 Cornerstones for Channeling Your Higher Self e-book.

Here’s how you can experiment with your physical body template:

  • Move your body in some simple way such as lifting your arm or taking a step forward.  Now do it again, but this time don’t move your physical form, just let yourself notice moving your etheric form.  Fun, eh?  Practice this until it feels natural to notice both your physical form and your etheric form in movement.
  • Want to improve something about your movement style?  Say, you want improve your coordination or reduce some physical pain that occurs with movement.  Ask that your etheric body guide you in the movement.  See if you can let go of your need to control your body with your mind, and relax into an allowing state that “pulls” you in a direction that feels more in sync with your desires.  Observe the shifts that happen for you when you “let go.”
