you can think of your higher self as the self that exists outside of just your conscious thought. its your spirit and its connection to the greater spiritual energetic consciousness that connects all things in the universe.
your higher self is that part of your spirit that has the ability to tap into the divine consciousness, psychic abilities, and higher magicks.
many people also associate this with your crown chakra, but also to the other chakras ‘above the head’ referred to as our soul star, spirit, universal, galactic, and divine/source chakras.
these chakras, starting with the soul star, are part of us, yet also located ‘outside’ of our physical body, if you can picture that. each one of them provides a higher level of spiritual connectedness and spiritual energy force to which we can tap into.
you may already be accessing these if you are doing a lot of work communicating with spirits and spirit guides, or psychically accessing the spirit.
before attempting to access these higher chakras, its important that your lower chakras are cleared of imbalance, psychic debris, unresolved feelings of anger, hurt, trauma (physical and emotional), and limiting self-thoughts and behaviors.
you cannot open and access higher chakras with lower chakras that are blocked or imbalanced, so it is important to work on those first, before building and raising your spiritual energy and vibrations to work with the higher chakras.
but lets say you feel like you’re there and ready for next steps. here are some crystals that are especially powerful for working with the higher chakras of your spiritual self:
blue apatite is said to have deep cleansing properties of the aura and the psychic body. its especially useful for developing or tapping into the psychic and paranormal realms.
this is a really great all around crystal for opening the crown chakra, which you can kind of think of as the gateway to the higher chakras.
this is a really high vibe crystal that works to activate and align all chakras starting with the third eye and up. typically white kyanite is the best option, but other colors such as indigo may also be very powerful for higher chakras.
you are probably saturated with reason why clear quartz is awesome, so here’s another one. clear quartz vibes really well with the soul star chakra, just about your crown chakra, as well as all of your other lower as well as higher ones.
another crystal with white light or high vibes which works excellent to activate and open the higher self chakras, selenite is also powerful with the crown chakra.
this crystal is excellent at clearing energetic pathways throughout the body, to prepare for opening higher chakras.
labradorite crystals work well with the third eye and crown chakras, and facilitate a connection between our physical and spiritual selves, but also our spiritual selves and the astral plane.
so, from all of the above, you’ve got quite a few options if you’re ready to take that next step into spiritual ascension. its important to know that some of these higher chakras can open gateways into the spiritual realm that may allow in entities you don’t want, so please always seek professional guidance when attempting to communicate with those higher levels of spirit and consciousness.
