Meeting Your Higher Self
As you sit here in your
human form, know that this body is just one aspect of
yourself. There is another part of you that is unseen by the
human eye. It is in reality your truest essence. This is
your higher self, that beautiful and
perfect part of you which has experienced all your lifetimes
and is intimately familiar with the home for which you
yearn. You have begun as a spark of creation, and have
human path to maturity, that you may grow increasingly
comfortable with your ability to be a creator and find your way home. Your
life is the classroom for this highest self, which
is already perfect in its essence, yet grows in wisdom
throughout your lifetime as you bring your body and soul
into divine union.
Relax and find a
comfortable position. Let the music soothe you and envelope
your senses as you read this meditation. If possible, get someone to take you through this
meditation until you have mastered it. However, it can still
be effective to read it to yourself here online if you
can filter out distractions. There are some gestures
which you may or may not choose to physically enact.
Let's begin a brief
journey to meet your higher self, and visit your home.
Direct your attention to
your breath. Notice the in-breath and the out. Take several,
slow deep cleansing breaths. In through your nose....out
through your mouth. Your abdomen should expand as you inhale
and contract with each exhale of your breath. Let your
shoulders melt downward. Share your breath with the
within. Look through your third eye. Allow the inside of your
forehead to be a movie screen, and watch the pictures that
your mind's eye visualize your house....The house that you
physically live in now. Go to your house and stand at the
front door. See yourself open the
door and walk through it. You are now inside your home. You are
safe from outside forces. Slowly make your way to your bedroom.
Enter the room. Once
inside the room go to your closet.
Step inside your
closet. Gently move the
clothing to one side. At the back of your closet a hidden door is
revealed. Only you can access this place. It leads to your
safe haven...your cathedral. This is the place where all
your secrets, dreams and mysteries are kept. Open the door to your
As you step through the
door you emerge from a forest, and find yourself on a lovely open
hillside. All around you are flowers in full bloom, in brilliant
shades of yellow, pink and violet.
You can hear birds singing, and the soft wings of butterflies flutter
you gently. The scent of freshness fills the air.
Far below you see a grove
of trees, a grassy park-like spot where beings are moving about.
Beyond the grove is a crystal blue river, glistening in the
sunshine. Across the river are lovely hills, turning into
mountains in the distance. You start down the hill.
The sun is warm on your back and the cool, fresh breeze
touches your face.
The figures are larger
now. Some present a solid form; others appear as light. Some
sit; others stand. They are in small groups. There is an air
of peace, and the quiet, comforting hum of voices. You do not know these
beings, yet you feel you’ve known them forever. You feel no
fear or hesitation as you approach. You are certain of your
welcome. One being catches your
gaze. It is the figure of your dreams, deeply beautiful in
the manner that most brings love and beauty to your heart.
As you focus your attention
on this being, you forget the others. For this moment there are only you two
in all the universe.
This being, male or
female, solid or light, walks toward you with arms
outstretched in welcome. Do not force its appearance. Let it
be however it is. You each walk very
slowly. There is all the time you need for this meeting. As you grow near, you
gaze deeply into each other’s eyes. You trust this being
completely, and feel only intense joy in its presence.
Stop. Breathe deeply. And
as you look
into each other’s eyes, time stands still.
You feel a deeper, more pure love than
you have ever known touch your heart. It is a love that is
familiar, remembered and yearned for, through all your human
lifetimes. It is an energy that envelopes you both.
Slowly you approach each
other and touch outstretched hands together. There is total
and complete love and trust in that touch. Know that this
being is yourself, your higher self. Know that it is more you than the human
body you inhabit. It is your essence...your soul. Touch hands, gaze into
the depths of each other’s eyes, and know the joy of this
reunion. Feel the deep peace that comes with your knowing of
You are whole, you are
perfect, you are unlimited.
Separating hands, your
highest self begins a song and dance.
Your highest self places one hand over your heart. You do
the same. With your free hand you cover that dear hand which
“May Light illuminate your heart, now
and forever more.”
You repeat this song, as
often as you like, gazing deeply into each other’s eyes.
May Light shine upon you. May peace abide with you.
illuminate your heart, now and forever more.
You are on the spiritual
plane now. Go with your higher self now, as one being.
Slowly merge. You
become the one being that you truly are. You will not need your body for awhile. Leave it
sitting safely there, resting in the sunshine. Just gently rest your
body on the grass, where it will safely await your return.
Your body is still connected to you, but is inanimate as you, the living fire, are in your
sanctuary. You have begun to notice
the other beings. They are all spirits like yourself.
Two circles are forming,
one inside the other. Join the one of your choice. Face the
being beside you in the other circle. You repeat the dance,
gazing deeply into each being’s eyes as you sing and dance
together. Move from one to the next, and on to the next. Go slowly, moving with
the group. Hear the beauty of the music. Let it fill you and
Feel the edges of your
being dissolve. There is no “self” or
“other” here. There is only oneness. You are whole, as are
all the beings that you meet. You have no need for
attention, no pain or emptiness. There is only love and
You move beyond yourself.
You are aware of yourself dancing and singing, and yet there
is no self. You are as fully each partner as yourself. You are all beings. You
are one. And, as the song
suggests, the Light fills your hearts, and
radiates through the valley. Continue to dance as long
as you like.
When you have had enough,
step back and watch.
It is the same whether
you dance or watch. You share the perceptions of the dancers
and the watchers. The total harmony of your being fills your
There is total joy and
peace. There is no separation from any living thing. There is only oneness,
with yourself, with all beings, and with God. Dance, watch, and feel
the Joy of your oneness.
The shadows grow longer.
The dance is ending. You draw apart, but
without regret. The love fills your heart. The memory of
this oneness will stay with you. Return to your human form
you left resting on the grass. It is time to join with your
beautiful human body,
You are back in human
form, and you now know that this is where you belong. You know that this is who
you truly are. You are perfect. You are limitless. You are
complete. Yet you are evolving and growing into something
You must leave this grove
now, but the parting is not sad. You may come back at any
time. You are always welcome here.
Your higher self follows
you to the path and presses into your hand a gift. This
treasured token is a reminder of the beauty, joy and love of
your higher self. And you now know that your higher self is
never gone, can never leave. You start to sense that you are
not sad at this parting, because you can actually invite
your higher self into your world anytime you wish. You are
warmed at the realization that this is why you are here and
that your higher self patiently awaits your invitation to be
as one on earth.
You feel the sun on your face as you walk
up the hill. Behind you, the beautiful music from the valley
accompanies you on your way. You breathe in the beauty of
mother earth and you realize that this is your home. As you
walk slowly you take in the fresh smell of grass, the lush
green of the forest, the crystal blue waters and you know
that you are all together now, one with the above and one
with the below. You see that your body and soul are the link
between these worlds.
There is no
hurry. Feel the deep peace and love that goes with you.
Bring your gift back with you into the physical world to
remind you that your higher Self is always
Whenever you are ready,
you may open your eyes. What was your gift?
