Anything you do or not do isn’t labeled as good or bad. You didn’t do anything wrong according to your higher consciousness. You may assume our guidance is like a scolding parent, but it’s not.
I have had some amazing healings and experiences lately but not all of them were easy. I recognize that any direction I head is perfect.
I use the term Higher Conscious more than Higher Self, but both terms are OK. There is no right or wrong! lol
But energetically, I see the higher-self connected to the body and part of the 8th chakra. I see the higher consciousness as the wise collective energy of all my incarnations and experiences. Many lightworkers and starseeds easily connect and bring in more of their higher-self, which helps them have more access to their higher consciousness.
At this time, we are guided to bring in more of our higher consciousness and follow that guidance. And even if you don’t follow your guidance, it is all perfect. Guidance is a subtle energy and it’s OK not to be sure.
