What is Higher Consciousness?
How do you achieve your Higher Consciousness?
Most of us are in a perpetual state of spiritual sleep, where we are unable to perceive reality and are stuck upon physical experience.
When you experience Higher Consciousness, there is a new awareness and a new awakening.
State of Higher Consciousness
When you hear of the Higher Consciousness, Buddha or Jesus might come to mind. It is a high level of spiritual awareness that transcends our current reality.
It is what is known as the Super-consciousness and Higher Self and is the highest state of your being.
When you get a glimpse of your Higher Consciousness…
You will be awake.
You will know who you truly are.
And You will know the meaning of existence.
This is the beginning of the awakening in our own eternal and infinite nature.
And every one of us has a deeper awareness that lies inside.
Scientific Research on Higher Consciousness
A scientific experiment by Dr. H. Henrik Ehrsson of University College London shows that by mismatching the subject’s touch and vision, the subject’s sense of consciousness can have experiences outside their own body.
Ehrsson stroked each participant’s chest with a stick while the subject is looking behind the participants.
The subject reported having felt drifted outside their own bodies and perceived it from the participant.
When Ehersson took a hammer and swing it at the direction of the participant’s body, although the participant didn’t felt anything, the subject flinched.
Under certain conditions, our sense of consciousness can move outside the body.
Frederic W. H. Myers, founder of the Society for Psychical Research, also saw that ordinary consciousness is limited and that the Higher Consciousness is capable of existing outside of the body.
What does this mean? To this we can conclude:
- Consciousness is not exclusive to the physical body
- Higher consciousness is a a separate entity, independent of the body which we can call “Higher Self.”
- We are Multi-layered in Consciousness/Self
Because “Self” and “Consciousness” are One and the Same.
How to Achieve Higher Consciousness
To achieve Higher Consciousness, you must temporarily let go of your mind and body.
This meaning thinking, reasoning, analyzing, sensing and feeling from the 5 original senses.
Our conscious mind will be quiet while our subconscious mind becomes dominant.
This is necessary because the faculty of Higher Consciousness operates differently than we are used to.
It doesn’t use the same sense of perception.
This does not mean that you are throwing out discernment.
You should master Self-awareness and reasoning.
But the level of awareness from your Higher Consciousness is much more powerful, faster, and intuitive.
Here you must prefer experience over intellectual knowledge.
Because like the nature of Love and Beauty, you can only experience its truth through reality.
Through the use of our subconscious mind, or soul, we alter our states of consciousness to achieve Higher Consciousness.
Achieving Higher Consciousness is Spiritual Awakening.
Although it is not easy, you can awaken through meditation, hypnosis, and spiritual practices such as mindfulness, raising vibrations, developing intuition, prayers, self-control, love, art, peace and nature.
The path is to first master your thoughts, emotions and animal urges. This does not mean to have no desire or passion, it means that you have self-control and never allow desire to be stronger than You.
Then you align yourself with your Higher Consciousness, your eternal and infinite self.
When you awaken to your true nature, you embody the principles of your Higher Consciousness…the love, patience, goodness, humility and transcending awareness.
If you are serious about achieving Higher Consciousness, it can be done.
How to begin experiencing Higher Consciousness: Enter the Void.
The void is the state of mind that is connected to everything but is also nothing.
It is in this state of nothingness that we shall find everything.
What do I mean by nothing?
Science agrees that our body is made up of trillions of molecules, each consisting of atoms and at one point believed that atoms were the building block of life.
But what they found was that there is more!
As they dig deeper and deeper, inside atoms contains sub-atomic particles in the quantum field.
The quantum field has vibrations and beneath each vibration lies one thing – nothing, empty space.
But how can this be? How are we still existing when everything is nothing?
But it is this mystery that this nothingness can create life and makes us move.
How to Enter the Void – Void Meditation
Although the void is a temporary state, achieving Higher Consciousness is a permanent state.
By getting to the state of nothingness, we are slowly implementing the Higher Consciousness inside our current state of consciousness one by one.
- Go into meditation
- Have the intent to “Enter the Void”
- Sit there and feel the presence of your Higher Consciousness
Higher Consciousness is Within You
When we expand our consciousness to new heights, we move toward the direction to bettering mankind and regain ourselves the capability to see the true reality – the true light.
You will rise in awareness, vibration and wisdom even from a glimpse of reality as it is.
By Higher Consciousness you shall awaken much like a lotus, blossoming from the vast surface of the water, ever so gracefully.
