Definition: The part of you that holds all aspects of you; wise self; true self; the atman; beyond personal self; transcendent self.
The Higher Self is that part of our being that holds the whole of our being – all aspects of ourselves. It is an expanded felt sense of self, and goes beyond the personal: beyond ego, beyond references to time and space. Consequently, it holds a greater vision and sense of our inherent wholeness and how to move towards this wholeness. When we are connected to Higher Self we may feel deeply integrated and whole, and have a sense of guidance by a wise knowing part of self.
Higher Self is you – an expanded, connected divine aspect of you. You may feel more connected to it in moments of calm clarity, of creative flow or inspiration, or during times of joyfulness and deep loving connection. Some believe that the spiritual path is about learning to sustain connection to this part of ourselves.
If you have pulled this card it may be helpful to take some time and go within, connect to this expanded aspect of you and listen to what your wise self is saying. Listen to the subtle ways in which this wise knowing directs you. Perhaps you are already deeply connected and this is a confirmation that you are connected.
How do you know when you are connected to Higher Self? How do you feel when you are connected to this aspect of you? How do you feel when you are out of connection to your Higher Self? How do you reconnect with your Higher Self?

Every week I shuffle and draw a card to write about and represent the week ahead. My only rule is that if I draw one that I have already written about, I draw another. In this way I am using the spirit of the cards themselves.
