The Higher Self is who we truly are, and can be thought of as an aspect of the immortal “I” who is sublime and as the sum of all of all physical lives and experiences, past present and future, relative to the Earth concept of “time is infinitely wise. Being connected with everything in the Universe that “is”, at all levels of reality, as well as all previous physical lives, full access to this inner aspect of ourself is most sought after by those consciously on the path and by those pursuing other Spiritual disciplines. It is the Higher Self that progresses on to “greater” things, once all physical lives with their associated physical, Astral and Mental body experiences have been completed.
It should be noted from the outset that the term “Higher Self” should more correctly be “Inner Self”. However, as the original term has been so widely used and understood, we will continue with its use in this book. It is very important to keep in Mind however that the physical world and therefore our physical bodies are the outermost aspect of the Universe existing at the lowest rate of Energy vibration, and the highest density, and The Source, The First Cause, God is at the very centre of all creation, existing at the very highest Energy vibration, encompassing the highest vibration of Unconditional Love. We therefore, after the cycle of physical incarnation has been completed, continue the journey inwards towards The Source as on the Divine path to perfection.
While in physical, Astral or Mental incarnation, the Higher Self can for example provide intuition to assist in circumstances where understanding, answers, clarification or guidance are needed and cannot be obtained by any “lower” means, and provides the highest level of connectedness and influence within the Universe in all spheres, and is therefore most important in any matter requiring any sort of unrestricted Universal connection such as that ideally required for manifestation for example.
Not much more need be said about the Higher Self, but suffice it to say He/She/It is who we really are, and that in physical incarnation, achieving and maintaining contact with this aspect of Self is considered to be one of the very highest priorities as a source of inspiration, knowledge and guidance.
