Imagine that you are a character in your favorite life simulation game or role playing game like “Sims” or “Kim Kardashian Hollywood.” Your Higher Self is you, and you are the character in the game. When you come to the realization that you and everyone you know are characters in a highly elaborate game, you wonder who the “player” is. It is your Higher Self.
Your Higher Self has a name. When I found out what mine was I laughed. I will never tell anyone because it’s really embarrassing. When I asked my Higher Self why she had that name she told, but me, “Because I’m that old!” Indeed all of our higher selves are eons old; actually they are eternal. They die in the game and come right back. They play on other worlds and in other universes, but there’s something about Gaia that makes them always want to come back to her. She’s a really hard level to beat!
Before you came here, you chose your life purpose, your avatar, and took training classes. You even took a survey of your past lifetimes here on earth and determined to resolve some of your past challenges in this lifetime. You knew what all of the consequences of your actions would be. You knew that you would forget everything about your true self and so the goal would be to remember. Then when you were born you forgot everything. Hey even if this isn’t true, it’s fun to think about.
So one day, after a chain of synchronistic events, you realized that you could speak to your Higher Self. You realized that all of those seeming coincidences were actually your Higher Self talking to you, and now you want to talk back. Wouldn’t it freak you out if one day your “Sim” looked directly at you from your computer screen and started talking to you? If that happened to me, it would freak me out! But that’s what we’re doing when we speak to the “player.” You can ask your Higher Self whatever you want. My favorite question is, “What are you doing? What are you doing? WHAT ARE YOU DOING???” I am a very impatient Aries and when my Higher Self does something I don’t understand, it makes me nervous and I’ll definitely snap at her, and have to apologize later.
One day I realized that I could talk to someone else’s Higher Self too. Often times when you’re speaking to someone, you’re actually speaking to their body guard and representative, the Ego. Talking directly to someone’s Higher Self allows you to bypass the Ego and find out what’s really going on. I talk to Maurice’s Higher Self all the time. Sometimes it’s hard for really smart people to articulate their true feelings. When I talk to his Higher Self I see his Ego’s perspective, his Light Body’s perspective, and his Shadow’s perspective all at once. If this doesn’t help you understand the person you love better, I don’t know what will.
Sometimes a person’s Higher Self will bypass their defenses and speak directly through them, but this is rare and often referred to as a “channeling.” Most people communicate back and forth telepathically.
Call me crazy, but this is why I prefer to communicate with certain people through text messaging only, because they’re so much nicer through text than they are on the phone. I think it’s because their Higher Selves are speaking through the text message, and their Egos are speaking on the phone. I know it sounds silly but it explains things a bit.
