Have you ever experienced the higher levels of consciousness and do you know how to maintain the level you have already reached?
At the end of the day, life is not about giving or taking, it is about evolving in harmony with the energy-informational field and sharing your knowledge with others. It seems that today it is more important than ever to experience what higher consciousness is all about. Here are seven keys to reaching higher levels of consciousness and synchronizing your subtle bodies without abandoning life in society.
1. Your Body
Even though many spiritual practices do not give a proper attention to the physical form, our human body is very important. We have to make sure it gets the food and care it needs. It doesn’t mean that you should become vegetarian or vegan in order to attain higher levels of consciousness. It means that you should be true to yourself and listen to what your body is expecting from you.
There are some who live with synchronized bodies of higher consciousness while making a conscious choice to enjoy a steak once in a while. There are also those who have restrained themselves from eating meat but failed to raise their consciousness. If you are following your own unique Nature and taking good care of your physical form without bringing it to absolute, then you are on the right track.
2. Your Senses
The next key is developing your senses. When you evolve your five senses, you get a chance to get hold of the sixth one. As you probably already know, the world around you is just a vibration of energy on a certain frequency. When you enhance your ability to sense what is really happening, you begin to interact with the energy field much more effectively and see the big picture.
There are even people (synthesists) who may see sounds, taste words or feel a sensation on their skin when they smell certain scents. In esoteric literature, your senses are related to your ether body on the higher levels of consciousness.
3. Emotional Intelligence
The next step is EQ. Most people are familiar with intelligence quotient (IQ) but not many people now about emotional intelligence (or emotional quotient – EQ).
Emotionally intelligent people are empathic to others as well as themselves. They can differentiate and prioritize their own emotions in order to think and act accordingly. The energy of emotions is an essential power that fuels your intentions and is a foundation of the Astral plane.
The fourth key is your worldview, your ability to use common sense and logic. When your worldview allows you to accept the truth of others and be in the constant process of learning you begin to evolve and awaken your consciousness.
If you want to be successful in the XXI century, your worldview needs to take into account and accept the benefits of meditation, existence of chakras (see “Physics Behind the 7 Chakra System and Where Chakra Energy Comes From”), human aura and other related concepts. When this knowledge is correctly applied in practice, it can help you ecologically interact with the energy-informational field.
5. The Law of Cause and Effect
You have probably heard about karma or the law of cause and effect. A correct understanding of this law is the next key to reaching higher levels of consciousness. Most people think that they should do to others as they want others do to them. However, defining karma this way can be tricky.
Leo Tolstoy once said: “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” In other words, in order to earn good karma for yourself, you might want to consider being to others as you want them be to you.
The sixth key is the core of values that you hold dear. It is the foundation of who you really are. It is about the language you speak, the place you were born, the teachers you have had, the importance of family in your life, your own definition of love as well as other significant values in life.
When one of your top priorities is taking the higher moral ground and considering the interest of everyone involved, you are raising your consciousness.
7. The Mission of Your Higher Self
The final key is the mission of your Higher Self or Spirit. It is your inner knowing of your purpose that is very hard to describe in words. Even though it might take a whole life to realize what it really is, there are certain tools that can help you on the way (see “How Knowing Your Cosmic Address Can Help to Realize Your Potential“).
Just always remember a quote from Dalai Lama: “The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”
One thing is for sure, there is no race to the higher levels of consciousness. In a sense, you are always represented on the levels of consciousness through you subtle bodies in one way or another. The key is to consciously take charge of your life and live it under the guidance from your higher self. Otherwise, someone else will be using the resources of your subtle bodies.
