Contact your higher power. Don’t be shy. Make the call. Calling in our higher power works. It doesn’t matter if we’re coming from our usual 3D egoic perspective or we’re flying in our higher 5D dimensions. (See my blog series on Moving from 3D to 5D Dimensions of Reality.) The fact is, we can all make the call. We all have the power to contact our higher selves. It’s just a matter of tuning in to the right frequency. So, let’s take a look at what a few spiritual teachers say about connecting with our higher selves.
Thomas Hubl explains:
Tuning into your higher self is like turning to the correct radio channel. You need to find the correct frequency wave. You may want to listen to 101.3 FM, but if your energy is at 99.6 FM, you’ll just get frustrated because your personal energy system is not wired to your higher frequency. You’re not plugged into the right kind of power outlet, the one that energizes life.
When I was a student of Thomas, he talked about how to go about finding the higher connection:
Developing an inner environment of stillness, coherence, presence, and timelessness is key. You need to learn to listen to the whisper.…You need to develop your inner body competence so your instrument will be attuned.…You need your own silence time to deepen your quality of listening, to listen to your own whisper, your own space and energy, which is movement. For many people, in the beginning, space is a kind of not doing, not filled with meaning. But spaciousness is a truly important inner aspect.…If there is a gap between energy streams it means you need to change what you are doing because prior decisions, karmic circumstances, and how you view life creates how your life looks today.
The Circle of Light agrees. They explain that we are actually “masters of consciousness.” We are creating our own world according to our own perceptions. The Circle says:
Clean out old concepts, beliefs, and material.…Get in touch with your love of self, your true self…the vibrational frequencies that you are putting out resonate on that level and draw that kind of loving experience into your life.…Get yourself into a good place. Do the visualizations, imagine, see what you desire. Feel into it. Work with your brain chemistry. Work with shifting what is emanating from your being with creative thoughts and designs. Feel the emotional energy.…One action from an inspired place is far more powerful than a hundred actions from a fear-based place…then wait and take the action that is inspired.…You will know when you are supposed to act because you are allowing your higher power to emerge.
Dr. Sue Morter echoes the perspective that we are our own “life’s creator, consciously manifesting what we believe….We are integrated, multidimensional beings made of pure energy…the degree to which we know this truth about ourselves, is the degree to which we live either in pain or bliss.” Dr. Sue gives us both hope and a method to change our life through a grounded chakra-body-breath perspective. In her book Energy Codes she says:
Everything is energy….When we start to identify as an energy being, we start to see everything differently….Energy is malleable and changeable, which means we can change how we live….Instead of operating as if life is happening to us, we can learn to transcend our primitive brain….We don’t have to keep getting stuck operating as a fear-based, problem solving, surviving presence that is just trying to make do and get by….We can rise up to our higher brain and become our truest selves…We can learn to operate from a place of creativity and genius….We are designed to be much more. We are designed to be pure intelligent energy—blazing and alive. Most people don’t know about the connection, how it works, how we can learn to experience life in an exalted, specific, and orderly way.
The Energy Code practices are laid out to show us how we can attain and live from our higher power. These practices teach us how to build our electromagnetic and neurological circuits so we can cut a pathway through our energetic areas which have developed gaps or are blocked. Dr. Sue explains that:
When we do the work to re-train our nervous systems, we start to be stimulated in a more balanced and natural fashion…we start to shift from sensing that ‘something is wrong, something is not right’ to deeply knowing that all is well….We are OK…Life is here to support us.…We can actually live as this reality, reliably and consistently throughout our daily waking, walking lives.
Pretty neat, huh? So, why not wire up. Let’s go ahead and learn what we need to do in our own unique way. After all, from the deepest, highest, quantum frequency, the higher power is here for us.
Dawson Church also gives us hope and yet another method to connect in his course 21 Days to Higher Power. He says:
In some of the retreats I’ve taught, we’ve measured people’s brain waves before and after the retreat. In just seven days, they acquire the same brain-wave patterns as adepts who’ve spent 10,000 hours in meditation. That’s the advantage of a science-based approach. It’s really all up to you. You can ignore your HP and focus on other things. You have the option of choosing ignorance, drama, misery, stress, negative thinking, pessimism, depression, anxiety, and all the other items on the menu of normal human thinking or you can connect with your HP.
Even though you don’t know what vibration levels are or to which one you might ascend, your Higher Power does. Simply ask, ‘Higher Power, lift my consciousness to the highest possible vibrational level.’ When you’re in elevated states, this request enables your Higher Power to bring you to even higher states of consciousness. When you’re struggling with negative emotion, you may not be able to achieve an elevated state, but this request at least opens the possibility of being lifted above where you are. This request signals your Higher Power that you are willing to move as high up the vibrational ladder as you possibly can. That’s why it’s the perfect petition for every stage of the path.
Well, this feels like a good place to wrap up this exploration of connecting with our higher power. We’ve just scratched the surface. There are so many teachers and methods and practices. We’ve only looked at four. I guess what’s best is to keep our hearts and minds open and follow the guidance that resonates with us. The connection to our higher power is important. Oh, wait a moment, I just got a download. This connection is who we are! Nothing is more important. A connection to our higher power is a connection not only to ourselves, but to humanity, and to the One Field that we are. So, let’s do it. Let’s do the work. Let’s find our way to connect consciously in an on-going way.
Oh, I just got another download. I’m going to do the Heart Protocol exercise Heart Series #8 and ask the heart questions for us all. Here goes…
My heart, my heart, what do you want us to know right now?
Answer that came for us: You are loved. You add to the world.
My heart, my heart, what do you need from us right now?
Answer that came for us: Dedication, commitment, trust, and love.
My heart, my heart, what do you wish for humanity now?
Answer that came for us: Yes, dear ones, we wish you to have the intention to wake up. Listen. Watch. Be diligent. Focus on the light inside of you. We will meet you there. This light is for you to be free, to see, to play, and Be. You are a child of Life, of God, of Beingness—whatever you chose to call it. Go ahead. Just Be. No analysis, no judgement required. Just you, naked as the Light of Life. Take the risk. Continue to move towards being who you really are. Ask for us. We are here. We bless you and your race. You are courageous.
Poem by Rumi on the theme of leaving the window open
“The Guest House“
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
