What Would It Be Like To Live As Your Higher Self? ©2015 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC
Life offers us so many opportunities to either expand or contract. Usually, if it's something fun or exciting, we have no problem expanding. If it's something challenging or unfamiliar, we often contract.
If you grew up in a dysfunctional family, or have been through painful situations, we'll contract even if it's fun or exciting.
Expansion is growing to meet the new experience. Expansion is rising up to the new vibration.
Contraction is resisting, getting smaller. Contraction doesn't actually protect us from pain, it increases it. It will create pain where none exists.
Expansion is opening fuller to our next level of growth. It releases pain or lets negativity flow through without sticking.
As Consciousness, we *are* Expansion. We experience no restriction, even squeezing into physical form. We still exist outside the body, so we can experience its density and ourselves at the same time.
Our bodies naturally experience contraction. We wince at pain. Growth is hard. Bodies view everything with restricted lenses and survival thinking.
Imagine what it would be like to live life in a space of expansion. What would it be like to live life *as* Consciousness? As your Higher Self?
What different choices would you make? How would life feel differently?
It doesn't take any time to shift your perspective. Change can happen instantaneously, simply by expanding your viewpoint.
Sometimes it helps to make a physical shift when doing this. If you feel stuck in the moment, step to the left or the right. Take a deep breath (expanding your lungs) can help, too.
You, as Consciousness, can see all possibilities in front of you. As Consciousness, you joyously embrace whatever comes at you. Even conflict or somber circumstances are considered amusing to Consciousness.
What steps forward can you make as Consciousness you might currently be shy of risking to take?
Maybe you've been spinning your wheels, or even racing around accomplishing nothing (fear based, survival activities). As Consciousness you'll find the wherewithal to stand still, ground, and receive instead.
Play with this. For the next week, whenever it occurs to you, experiment with living life *as* your Higher Self. See how differently you behave. Notice what's different, both inside you and outside you.
When one person acts as Consciousness, it creates space for others to do so as well. Changing yourself gives permission to others to change as well.
Try this for the next 7 days and see how your life transforms!
