Have you experienced your higher self?
Although it may sound like a lofty concept, technically speaking, we experience our "higher self" when we access the part of our brain called the neocortex. This is the seat of imagination, empathy and impartial judgement.
More broadly, it is the part of our consciousness we access when we see life from a more universal, less biased point of view. We often experience this state of consciousness late at night or early in the morning, when there are no threats or demands upon us; our minds are quiet and our bodies comfortable. We go beyond our primal, survival-based thinking and experience a deeper sense of connection with the universe.
Have you experienced this state of consciousness before?
