I’ve just had the privilege of being one of the first to view and comment on a new website of a dear friend of mine, Geraldine Sherborne, who channels ‘Higher Self’ guidance and messages for people, helping them to find their true purpose. I love Geraldine, and her soul work, and as Essene members over the two decades I look forward to seeing her each year, knowing that when we do meet there is always a strong bond of friendship that goes way beyond this life time. Geraldine has been channelling beautiful messages from the heart of our planet, Gaia, and from Angels, Masters from other worlds, and Archangels for many years. She does this by connecting through meditation to her Higher Self, and receives guidance from the cosmic energies accessible to those who enter the field.

We all have a Higher Self, even those of us who haven’t yet woken up and become conscious of it. It was once explained to me, many years ago, that the soul was split into two aspects but with only one half coming to incarnate on Earth. This is the part of us which, as human beings with a physical body, is heavier in density and has a lower vibrational energy. It contains our personality, our ego, and our emotional and mental bodies. Our Higher Self is in constant contact with Divine energy and Light, and is able to maintain a frequency of high vibrational energy so high that we don’t always – or automatically – connect with it.  That is what we are doing when we learn to tune in to our silence. This is what we are doing when we go within. Perhaps it is what we hear whenever we need guidance and wisdom. Aha,  I hear you ponder, so, could this be what we are really referring to when we think of our ‘guardian angels’? Is this what we are doing when we pray to God, or speak with the angels, and receive answers?

Fair comment. Here’s some food for thought as we explore the concept more deeply …

IF our soul splits at incarnation with the intention of giving guidance throughout our lifetime so that we may indeed fulfil our purpose, then why can’t we all re-connect at will? Well perhaps we can, and do, and perhaps we just don’t realise this is what we are doing in meditation.

And, if indeed we have divided our soul leaving part of us behind in the heavenly realms of Light, could this be the sense of yearning and ‘trying to find our self’, that so many of us feel throughout our lifetime and what psychologists describe as a sense of  separation? For two thousand years we have been taught to believe this sense of lack, or yearning, is due to the ‘Fall of Man’. Possibly. But for those men (perhaps with a blinkered sense of understanding) writing the rules in the beginning of strict religious teachings there needed to be explanations.  What better way to control the masses at that time than to teach them to believe it was because humanity (or Adam and Eve to be precise) had angered their jealous and vengeful Creator. He would, after all,  leave them to fend for themselves until they found their way back to the Light through suffering and repentance. I struggle with that one myself, so the idea of my soul separating with one part remaining behind in the Divine Light to guide me satisfies better.

There is, in essence, great wisdom and understanding in all of us. Many just don’t have the confidence to believe that,  nor do they have the tools to access it. That’s where we often seek guidance from others. sometimes we go to a clairvoyant, sometimes we seek spiritual development so that we can learn how to do it for ourself. If you are feeling a little wise council might serve you I can recommend my lovely friend Geraldine. she doesn’t offer to talk to your angels, but to your Higher Self, yet her definition of Higher Self is:

​”Your Higher Self is the eternal deep part of you that is connected to the higher planes of existence. It is your ever present friend whose guidance is always loving, compassionate and uplifting”. 

I and Geraldine and many others access our Higher Self on a regular basis. I believe it is this  source of wisdom that inspires and guides as a muse for music, creativity, teaching and in my case writing and public speaking. In healers it is the Higher Self which connects to the beneficent Light and soothing balm of the universal Divine healing energies available to all of us when we open our hearts. To believers of different faiths it could be connected with the Holy Spirit, perhaps to a direct connection with God (in fact could it be the Higher Self in connection to Source answering the questions we ask in our prayers for instance ?). Or, yes indeed there are those who might argue that this is the guidance of our Guardian Angels. And actually who’s to say that this is not one and the same?

So many theories spark interest in our origins, our spirituality and our soul – but which ones are true, and whom may we trust? The answer is always to sit quietly and breathe deeply, to relax and ponder your question as you sense the answer coming into mind. From a guardian angel?  or you, …. your Higher Self?
