The term “Higher Self” will have a very unique meaning to each individual.
Some view the Higher Self as a divine, omnipotent, metaphysical entity—while others believe the Higher Self is a “connection” to an omnipotent God or Goddess/Source/Higher Power (depending on a person’s spiritual beliefs).
My personal impression is that the Higher Self, whether mortal or metaphysical, can be reached through the Body, Mind, Spirit connection. When we align our beliefs, thoughts, words, and actions with our values and Conscience, we begin to integrate with our Higher Selves.
It represents an internal state—not defined by external success, status or wealth. Yet those who are working toward their highest potential will often attract success and abundance.
Our values, spiritual beliefs, and deepest priorities will help to define what it means to reach our Higher Selves.
