Higher Consciousness: What it is & Why we All Need It.

The term “Higher Consciousness” has been thrown around a lot recently.

With the influx of spiritual teachers and coaches, this term became mainstream—and for good reason. With so much going on in the world, I think all of us are looking for meaning in our lives.

I personally have been thinking about this concept a lot lately, and my husband asked me what I thought it meant, and it’s like the floodgates opened! I realized that after years of trying to attain a certain level of spirituality, the way to tap into Higher Consciousness is actually quite simple.

I have studied self-development for years and read every available book on the topic. But it wasn’t clicking for me. I was trying to follow certain rules or force myself into spirituality because I wanted to be perfect at it. Who else is a recovering perfectionist?

It wasn’t until my life got turned upside down that I understood what spirituality actually meant and what attaining Higher Consciousness could look like in my own life. I realized it was so simple that I could throw away all the supposed “rules” I was placing on myself. When he asked me what it meant, the words flowed so easily and effortlessly.

And now I want to pass this message on to you. I know that so many of us suffer from loneliness, depression, anxiety, and so on. But the real reason humans are here is to enjoy life through exploration and love. Even if you can tap into this feeling of Higher Consciousness for a brief moment, you’ll realize just how impactful it is on your mental health.

Let’s first discuss what Higher Consciousness is not:

>> Believing that you are better than people.

>> Using spirituality for your own Ego or self-image.

>> Thinking you need to go live in a monastery for the rest of your life.

>> Buying into the idea that you need to have a perfect daily routine to be spiritual.

>> Reading too many self-help books but not actually implementing the lessons.

>> Having to be from a certain religion to believe in it.

The beauty of Higher Consciousness is that any human on this planet can reach it. If you desire to tap into this higher energy and feel more fulfilled in life, you absolutely can.

Here’s what Higher Consciousness means:

>> Knowing that material things don’t bring genuine happiness.

>> Being grateful for life every single day.

>> Pursuing the people, events, and hobbies that bring you love and fulfillment.

>> Acknowledging that there may be tough moments in life, but the good ones always follow.

>> Seeing love in all the people and nature you interact with.

>> Believing in yourself and your purpose in life.

When you’re tapped into this Higher Consciousness, life just feels sweeter. It’s like you’re experiencing life on volume 10. The trivial day-to-day happenings don’t affect you as much. However scary the news is, you will still do everything in your power to live a life you love.

Of course, life will still throw curve balls at you and things may not go your way. No human on this planet can escape the unexpected. But when you’re tapped into this higher energy, you fully trust that life will work itself out. That the good times will come back around and that there are lessons to be learned in the tough seasons.

Now you’re probably wondering, “This all sounds great, but how do I actually achieve it?”

Well, there are endless possibilities. The way to achieve it is just doing the things that make you feel more alive and more aligned with this state.

But here are some ideas to get you started.

Ways to tap into Higher Consciousness:

>> Follow your passions and the things that excite you.

>> Start noticing the coincidences in your life and know that nothing is by chance.

>> Stop placing worth in your salary, cars, house, and other material things.

>> Deepen your relationships with the people in your life whom you care about.

>> Don’t get caught up in the daily drama with other people or events.

>> Stop caring what other people think of you; their opinions won’t matter in a year from now.

When you get into a Higher Consciousness and notice just how amazing life truly is, your relationships will improve significantly. You will be happier and not fazed by small inconveniences.

But most importantly, your relationship to Self will grow stronger every day. You will be confident in your life’s purpose, and you’ll make the most of the limited time you have here on Earth.

Are you ready to attain a Higher Consciousness?
