Higher Self vs. Lower Self
Tapping into your Higher self is the first step toward living more spiritually. Throughout life, your Higher self (the part of you that is calm, collected and connected to something bigger) is in constant competition with your Lower self (the anxious, ego-driven part of you that often resorts to worry and anxiety).
Taking a moment to connect to your Higher self will help you feel centered in your spirituality and will guide you through life’s challenges with ease and grace. But how do you know if your Higher self is really in charge?
One way is to ask yourself if you’re behaving like an eagle or a duck. When faced with a challenge, ducks feel powerless, act like victims and are quick and reactive, while eagles feel empowered, resourceful and capable of surmounting any obstacle. If you find yourself sinking into your Lower self, acknowledge what’s happening and make a decision to tap into your Higher self. Simply making the choice to connect to the strong, calm, and wise part of you is often all it takes to begin to live life as the best person you can be. The ability to live more spiritually will follow.
