3 Signs You’re Becoming One With Your Higher Self

You no longer sweat the small stuff

Kimberly Fosu

 

 

Because it's just small stuff.

There is bigger, deeper, much higher stuff to sweat.

 

1. You Accept Yourself

There’s a divine plan for your life, whether you can believe it or not.

You were created on purpose, and then you were given a purpose.

You were going to forget everything you knew and then your work would be to rediscover and remember what was forgotten.

 

On a spiritual path, there are many battles you’ll face and sometimes it’s a battle against yourself that disconnects you from yourself.

When you’re disconnected from something, you can’t love it as it is. You can’t accept it for what it is.

 

Once you remember you’re spiritual in nature and start reconnecting with all the parts of you that you ignored and the things you’d forgotten, you reconnect with your higher self who can help you find your way back home.

 

When you can remember and see it all, then you can accept it all.

 

You know you’re becoming one with your higher self when you start accepting certain things. Your ‘self’ is very much included.

You accept all of who you are and the purpose you’ve been given. You have faith and believe in yourself to be able to fulfill your given purpose.

 

You also accept that there are some things in life that you just can’t understand, no matter how much you seek. You learn that things are revealed when it’s time to be.

This state of acceptance is a much higher vibration.

On the scale of consciousness, you climb up and you can now accept everything and every one just the way they are.

 

You accept the highs and the lows.

You accept that you’re different and, therefore, will be misunderstood and judged.

You accept the ups and the downs and everything in between.

You accept your dark side and you embrace your flaws. You make friends with the dark things in your shadow so they don’t scare you anymore.

You know everything that has happened is preparing you for the work you’re doing or about to start doing.

 

Some days, even when you’re not able to do everything; you know you have limitations and you can accept that, and rest assured knowing that things will work out.

You know that everything is planned and will therefore fall into place and you don’t have to force anything.

 

You let things flow and when it’s time; it falls into its right place.

 

When you’re merging with your higher self, you can accept yourself without a need to change to please others or to fit in.

You don’t care that you don’t fit it anymore.

In fact, when you become one with your higher self, you can see clearly that you were never meant to fit in.

You’ll be okay standing out of the crowd and watching over them.

You accept everything about your life the way it is because you know that everything will soon come together and make perfect sense, even if it seems crazy right now.

 

On the scale of consciousness, you reach acceptance, and you can accept everything and everyone just the way they are.

 

 

 

3 Ways Your Soul Communicates With You

Your soul never gives up on you, even when you’re stubborn

Kimberly Fosu

School teaches us all about the immense power of the mind, but it never teaches the soul and the role it plays.

We’re not taught about the soul’s pool of infinite wisdom.

We’re not told that we have a soul which holds all the answers to life’s toughest questions.

We don’t learn that it’s our souls that reincarnate over and over again and therefore hold the agreement we made before coming here.

We don’t know that our soul has already chosen its experiences, successes, failures, and life lessons.

We mostly rely on the mind and soul guidance is not a normal everyday thing for most of us, but the soul is just as important as the mind if not more important.

Without the soul, there is no mind.

 

The soul knew that life on earth wouldn’t be easy and so it gives us clues and guidance to help us on our physical journey.

As easy as it would be for all of us, the soul does not speak in human language.

 

The mind can sometimes yell at us in communication because it’s fearful.

It doesn’t know anything, but the soul knows everything.

The soul is quiet.

It never yells at us no matter what.

Its communication is subtle.

It doesn’t scream because it knew we’d get it wrong where we got it wrong.

 

The soul already knows everything that will happen, whereas the mind only knows what has happened, so by relying on the mind alone, we miss the big picture.

We miss important signs, messages, and any sacred form of communication.

This doesn’t mean the mind plays no part in receiving and relaying messages to us. The mind’s job is to be open.

 

With that said, here are three ways the soul tries to communicate with us:

1. Music & Movies

This world would have no meaning without beautiful soul music.

The soul knows the importance of music, so it sends us messages through the songs we love so much.

Our souls know we thrive off of music and therefore make it an easy and fun way to send us important messages.

 

Music, because of its deep connections with the human brain, is meaningful and impactful.

 

Have you ever had such a terrible day you turn on the radio and the music is just what you needed to feel better?

Have you felt stuck trying to make a decision and the lyrics of the song are exactly what you needed to hear?

Our souls use the words of a song to relay messages to us because music has a way to our hearts.

It even drives our actions and emotions.

Movies work the same way.

Many of us cry when a movie touches our hearts.

 

Have you ever watched a movie where someone gives advice or tells something to someone and it’s as if they are speaking to you?

The soul can sometimes use the words of a movie to communicate with us.

Some messages in a song or movie can touch your heart and cause a shift in you.

And sometimes you can’t stop thinking about what you’ve just seen. When that happens, it could be your soul trying to tell you something in words you can understand.

Our souls know we thrive off of music & movies and therefore make it an easy and fun way to send us important messages.

 

2. Numbers & Synchronicity

Numbers are the most common way the soul communicates.

How many times have you looked at the clock and seen 11:11, 9:11, 12:12 right when you were thinking of something very important?

Regardless of the meaning, you assign these numbers, they function to wake you up.

It’s no surprise that many people see repeated numbers right before a major life change or spiritual awakening. Numbers aren’t just mere coincidences. They are the language of the universe.

 

The soul also communicates with us through synchronicity.

Synchronicity is a series of events that happen in a way that seems out of the ordinary. They are the “What are the odds?” moments.

They happen when our inner and outer worlds align.

 

For example, you turn on the radio and the lyrics to the song playing are the same thoughts you were just thinking or the words you just read on a billboard.

Or you pray to God to show you a sign and something crosses your path and you know it in your soul it’s the sign you asked for.

Or you think about your crush hoping they’d reach out to you and a few minutes later, they do!

What are the odds?

The thing with numbers and synchronicities is that you must take note of what it is you were thinking before and when you saw the number of synchronicity. That’s where the message is.

Numbers and synchronicities aren’t just mere coincidences. They are the language of the universe.

 

3. People & Animals

People are messengers and a vehicle for soul communication.

Everybody you encounter has something to teach you.

 

You might come across someone who says the exact thing you need to hear.

Or a total stranger who says something in a random conversation that inspires you to look at life a little differently.

You have to pay attention to the things that resonate deep within your soul. The soul also communicates with us through what someone says in a podcast, radio, or even an article.

 

Animals are also very important messengers.

We come across spirit animals every day, but we may not see them as such.

Animals cannot speak, but sometimes their presence will leave an impact on you long after they’re gone.

The meaning you assign to different animals is highly personal to you.

 

To get the message your soul is trying to communicate to you, you have to take note of when the animal crossed your path and how it was behaving around you.

Was it calm or agitated?

What was the first thing that came to your mind the moment you saw the animal?

Did you feel as if everything was okay, or did you feel uneasy?

That’s where you’ll find your message.

Each animal has its symbolic meaning, and the meaning of the animal can be found in many places online.

You have to pay attention to the things that resonate deep within your soul.

 

Also: Intuition & Dreams

We all know what intuition is, but most of us don’t always listen to it. Our intuition is a powerful information source.

It’s our wise companion.

 

Intuition is the unexplainable sensation that tells you to do or not do something.

That’s your soul trying to guide you to or away from something.

Your intuition will never make you feel scared.

 

It won’t be loud, aggressive, or threatening. Your intuition is calm and subtle, no matter what the situation.

If the feeling makes you feel afraid, you can disregard it as false intuition. Real intuition empowers you to take action. It never makes you afraid.

Dreams are also a common way for the soul to communicate with you.

At the end of a long day, it’s how the soul tries to tell us important things after we’ve spent all day ignoring all modes of soul communication.

When the thinking mind falls asleep, the soul comes to the forefront and leaves us messages.

 

Dreams are symbolically making them difficult to interpret, but intuition can help us figure it out. The scenario, the place, and the people in your dream all hold significant meaning.

Dreams are a way to explore the hidden realms of the unconscious mind.

They can serve as a doorway to new insight and information and reflect our true inner feelings.

They can also show us the things in the shadows that need to be healed.

We all dream and know the power of intuition but we don’t always pay attention to their messages.

 

Final Thoughts

Your soul is always communicating with you, but it’s up to you to figure out the meaning of the message.

You are the only one with the power to know what your soul is trying to tell you.

 

The soul will often use several of these ways to convey its message, especially when we keep missing the signs.

The soul never gives upon us.

 

When we’re sent a message one way and we just can’t seem to get it, the soul tries again, using another mode of communication.

It’ll keep trying until we eventually get the message and find the meaning behind it.

 

 

The 6 Self-Discovery Tools That

Will Help You Reconnect With

Your True Self

Photo by visualsofdana on Unsplash

You’re not alone if you feel like you’re just rambling your way through life, with no real sense of purpose or direction.

 

Unfortunately, our society often requires us to ignore our deepest needs, so that we can adapt and become the acceptable, conventional, reliable version of ourselves.

It makes us forget who we really are so that we become who we’re supposed to be.

 

The good news is, there’s an alternative path.

That path demands a great deal of courage and resilience, but it gives us the freedom we desire in return. I’ve chosen that path and I couldn’t have made a better choice.

 

If we’re brave enough to reconnect with our inner purpose, the Universe will reward us with an infinite amount of energy and inspiration to pursue our dreams.

It will make us cross paths with the tools, books, teachers and circumstances we need in order to grow.

 

One of my life teachers has been Dr. Lindsay Gibson, whose books have helped me immensely and whose wisdom is worth sharing.

In Who You Were Meant To Be, she describes 6 tools of self-discovery that can help us reconnect with our true selves and rediscover our purpose.

 

Let’s dive in.

 

1. The Tool of Energy Shifts

We’re so used to living on autopilot that we’ve stopped paying attention to our energy levels and how they communicate with us.

Feeling tired, drained, or bored when doing something is not an accident — it’s a sign that the activity doesn’t bring you joy and enthusiasm.

On the other hand, when you get involved in a topic or idea that stimulates you, you feel a clear increase in your energy.

 

Think about it. When you really, really want to do something — when you’re bursting with excitement — you can’t even sleep.

At least that’s what happens to me when a thousand creative ideas pop into my mind, or when I know I’ll be boarding an airplane to Bali at 6 in the morning.

So, ask yourself, what gives me infinite energy?

 

2. The Tool of Envy

This one is obvious, but unfortunately, we don’t take advantage of it.

Envy is a feeling we get when we recognize something that could be ours but for some reason, it’s not. It’s what we feel when we see someone enjoying the kind of life we wish we had.

  • Who makes you envious?
  • Which qualities and possessions make you feel like wow, I wish I was that lucky?

Here’s the thing: we build our own luck.

If we manage to use envy the right way, instead of feeling jealous or resentful, we’ll feel hopeful because the people we are envious of are actually mirroring back at us our own abilities and possibilities.

I realized that I’d always get envious of people who could work from anywhere in the world without worrying about being tied to one particular place for most of their time.

This feeling helped me recognize that I was tired of trying to adapt myself to fit in a system I was not meant for.

 

3. The Tool of Appeal

Maybe you’re not necessarily envious of someone, but you definitely feel attracted or admired by what they’re doing.

Being around people who feed your inspiration helps you acknowledge the vision you had for yourself before societal norms and family expectations were a thing.

 

Dr. Gibson explains it this way:

“Appeal is the attracting pull that desirable people and things exert upon us.

In a store, some items appeal to us, while others are passed over without a second glance.

In a room full of people, we sneak peek at a certain person because there’s something about him or her that we find appealing.

This subtle experience is a reliable guide, nudging you toward something or someone who reminds you of what you need.”

 

4. The Tool of Recognition

If you catch yourself constantly making comments about a particular subject or skill, specifically comments like I could do that or that could have been done in a different way, it means you’re recognizing your skills — even if it’s not a conscious process.

  • What gets you compliments?
  • Which skills, traits, and values do you love the most about yourself? (it can be empathy, communication, leadership, self-awareness, efficiency, critical thinking, spirituality…)

5. The Tool of Physical Response

We’ve already talked about how a heightened sense of energy is a clear sign of your purpose, but what about your body feel?

What about tingles, or feelings of warmth and physical lightness?

Our body has an amazing ability to let us know what’s meant for us and what’s not.

When you’re moving away from the right direction, you inevitably feel irritability, depression, headaches or nausea.

These are signs you’re not following your intuition.

 

I’d always get cranky and frustrated for not having the time and the freedom to be with myself and listen to my own thoughts, especially in the mornings.

As an introvert, I deeply treasure my alone time — in fact, I need it.

Otherwise, my energy levels will drastically drop.

 

Seeing everyone around me constantly in a hurry made me think there was clearly something wrong with me, so I’ve spent years trying to fit in.

Now I know I should have learned to trust my body and my gut feelings sooner.

 

6. The Tool of Mental Response

Just as our bodies respond to what we like, so do our thoughts.

According to Dr. Gibson,

“If you are considering an interesting career that fits you well, you will probably experience hope, optimism, and a sense of possibility.

Uplifting fantasies will pop into your mind about how it would be to live that way.

These pleasant and stimulating mental responses occur when you’re on the right track, moving toward your true purpose in life.”

 

The Universe works in mysterious ways, and it will always force us to loot at whatever problems we’re ignoring.

 

If you’re connected to your true, authentic self, these tools seem pretty obvious.

You’ve learned to listen to your intuition and follow its guidance.

 

The problem is, most of us are not trained to connect with our inner world, let alone trust it. Instead, we’re programmed to follow the rules, stay in our comfort zone and do what’s expected of us without ever questioning if we’re moving in the best direction.

 

These tools validated my intuition and made me realize that I am finally, for the first time in my life, doing what’s best for me.

I hope you use them as catalysts for the transformation you’ve been longing for.

 

 

THE PATH

Finding Inner Peace

 

Image credit: The Hill Path by Alfred Sisley (1876)

Welcome to The PATH — a weekly reflection with three insights into daily life.

 

This week’s reflection searches for ancient insights on finding peace. To do so, we reflect on — anxiety, the second arrow, and letting go.

 

1. Anxiety

Are you anxious?

Believe it or not, you’re not inherently anxious.

You’re intrinsically whole, good, and kind as is.

“When we rest in meditation, we discover that underneath the stories we tell ourselves about our anxiety is anxiety itself,” writes Lodro Rinzler (author of Take Back Your Mind).

 

In my interview with Rinzler on In Search of Wisdom, he explained,

 

Anxiety has both a cognitive element and a physiological response (in the form of stress), which means we experience anxiety in both our minds and our body.

One way to think about the distinction between stress and anxiety is that stress is a response to a threat while anxiety manifests even when there is no clear and present danger.

 

According to Rinzler, we can notice when anxiety arises and not go down the rabbit hole.

“When fearful or anxiety-producing thoughts come up in meditation, you have a choice: you can chase after them, or you can try something new.

You can try to let go of the stories you tell yourself and be with the emotion underneath.”

 

2. The Second Arrow

There’s a traditional analogy in Buddhism: a man is walking in the forest when he is shot with an arrow out of nowhere.

Now, instead of pulling it out and tending to his healing process, he begins to spin out, thinking, “Who shot me?

 

Why am I always the one being shot?”

This mental spiraling is known as the second arrow, explains Rinzler.

The first arrow was suffering inflicted upon us as part of life.

But the second arrow is the suffering we inflict on ourselves.

 

Similarly, the philosopher Epictetus taught, “People are not disturbed by things themselves, but by the views, they take of those things.”

Your condition is the result of your own opinions and interpretations.

 

Epictetus put it this way,

People who are ignorant of philosophy blame others for their own misfortunes.

Those who are beginning to learn philosophy blame themselves.

Those who have mastered philosophy blame no one.

 

3. Letting Go

One of the reasons the lessons above are challenging is our tendency to add over subtract. According to Leidy Klotz, the author of Subtract, “Left to our own devices, our first instinct when trying to improve something is to add.”

 

In my interview with Klotz, he explained,

It might be evolutionarily advantageous for us to think of adding first, but knowing that we do it, we can take steps to make sure that we consider subtraction as a way to solve problems. Fundamentally research shows we’re overlooking this whole category of opportunities to make not just the world better, but our days, and our ideas.

 

The wisdom of letting go reveals itself across many great thinkers throughout history.

For example, Pablo Picasso defined art as the “elimination of the unnecessary.”

Likewise, the French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry observed: “Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

Who Was Jesus, the Man?

A Channeled Message from the Archangels

Jodie Helm

I wrote an article a while back about leaving Christianity but holding onto Jesus, and honestly, I’ve never felt closer to Him.

I’ve asked the Archangels about Heaven, prayer, High Guides, and God, among other things, but I haven’t asked them to talk in-depth about Jesus.

I did not ask them about religious topics like crucifixion, divine conception, or resurrection.

Instead, I asked them about Jesus and His time on Earth. Following is their response.

 

Question: I would like to write about Jesus and His time on Earth, and I need your help.

Answer:

There are many things we could say about Jesus, but the one word that describes Him most completely is Love.

As a soul studying the Earth and its people, Jesus felt great sadness at all the conflict so prevalent on Earth.

 

The petty vindictiveness, the common mistreatment of people, and the lack of simple kindness extended toward others greatly disturbed Him.

He planned a lifetime with the Creator and the Angels in hopes of setting a proper example of human behavior that would have a lasting impact on humanity.

We are all beings of light, children of the same Creator.

One of the things that made Jesus unique is the pure Love he felt for all living things.

It was always and remains unconditional and everlasting, above and beyond nearly every being.

 

The other major difference setting Him apart from souls and humans was that He retained His universal knowledge, soul consciousness, and direct connection with the Creator and Angels the entire time He spent on Earth in a human body.

The mission He assigned Himself did not allow time for Him to discover meaning and learn everything He needed to accomplish His purpose on Earth.

Some people become enlightened while they are human.

Jesus was born enlightened.

 

Many will think this was an advantage, and in some ways, it was, for the gifts that most people do not realize they have, such as channeling, healing, and the abilities connected to the elements were always present and accessible to Jesus.

However, coming to Earth with this knowledge and these gifts set Him apart from others from the moment He came to Earth until the moment He died.

While this was part of His plan, it was a necessity, rather than a desire.

He required it, but He did not necessarily like it, because His life purpose was to become close to people and earn their trust, so He could teach them.

 

When one is so obviously different from everyone around them, this is very difficult to achieve.

People often fear what they don’t understand, then and now.

Rarely do they trust those who are as different from the norm as was Jesus?

Those who found trust and faith through Him were the ones who were able to overcome their fears and insecurities.

 

It was never Jesus’s goal to be worshipped, and it is still not something He desires.

He was a humble teacher at the root of His humanity.

His overreaching goal was to set an example of loving-kindness for others to hopefully be followed. In this, He was both successful and unsuccessful.

 

Even now, thousands of years after His time on Earth, Jesus is well-known and remembered by millions.

His life on Earth is an example of a concept being good in theory, yet often unsuccessful in practice in many ways.

We will explain.

While Jesus came to Earth with unrestricted knowledge and abilities, He was surrounded by people who had no conception, much less understanding of these things.

To be close to Him was to feel His great capacity for love, potentially changing lives forever.

The miracles He performed added to the awe and reputation He gained in a very short time. However, even with all His gifts and the element of Love, it was very difficult to overcome humanity’s shortcomings.

 

Many considered Him a person to be feared.

Some even considered Him a trickster, abnormal, or even evil.

There were actually quite a few who suggested He was the creation of evil, come to intrigue, and mislead people into falling away from their faith.

Those in power, both religious and governmental, were both fearful and angry toward Him and felt highly threatened by Him.

This eventually led to His death, which He expected and to which He agreed.

 

While He gained many followers who loved Him, He also gained as many enemies who hated Him.

As well-known as many of His teachings and miracles remain today, they are largely incomplete and often misunderstood.

Anyone who thinks Jesus hated, judged, or condemned others is grossly mistaken.

He preached Love for everyone, regardless of origin, religion, past behavior, race, or social status.

He did not judge or condemn anyone; in fact, he went out of His way to show Love, kindness, and acceptance for those considered outcasts in His time. He loved, healed, and forgave all.+

 

He only wanted His example to be followed and revered, rather than His person.

He wanted to bring people together and help them overcome their differences in hopes of promoting unity and the belief in the value of every person and showing kindness toward everyone.

Again, He was somewhat successful in His endeavors, but He has also been used to promote the opposite of what He lived.

 

Jesus values and loves every person on Earth equally.

While some understand and appreciate His message and example more than others, He has no favorites with regard to religion, race, sexual orientation, political practices, gender, culture, or anything else that sets people apart in others’ eyes. He does not wish to be a god. He wishes to be a friend, a brother, a teacher, a confidant.

 

Jesus was never concerned with material wealth and lived a simple life.

He never owned His own property, and He largely depended on the kindness and generosity of others.

Why then would He come to Earth to give or restore Earthly power to others?

He sacrificed Himself in order to promote Love and kindness toward everyone.

What more can anyone give?

What more can anyone request?

 

Jesus is one of several Ascended Masters in the highest realms.

 

His great mastery was the Love He held for all of humanity and the willingness to live and die setting that example.

Even after all of His suffering on Earth, His Love prevails.

He does not and will not judge or condemn others for any reason.

He has endless Love, compassion, forgiveness, and hope for humanity.

He continues to work tirelessly for the sake of mankind.

 

Final Thoughts

You’ll notice neither the Archangels nor I directly refer to Biblical references.

Lots of people do that to suit their own purposes.

Please don’t quote the Bible to me in anger or outrage if you don’t resonate with this message.

I don’t believe in the Bible literally, I don’t believe in Hell or the devil, and I’m not afraid of judgment or condemnation from Jesus or God.

I love them, and they love me.

Simple.

They love you, too, whoever you are and whatever you do.
