Do you ever feel that you are only living up to part of your potential? That there is a calling to something bigger out there for you that you can’t currently comprehend?
This is the calling of your highest path and glimpses of it are always given to those who are ready to seek it.
Your highest path is the ultimate path for you, it is the path that you naturally walk when you are living from your authentic, true, higher self.
Your higher self is essentially the most authentic version of You and arises when you act from the deepest part of your soul consciousness.
Your soul consciousness is an innate knowledge and wisdom about your life and your life’s journey and tapping into it allows you to understand that you are connected to and are part of the Universe.
“You are the Universe expressing itself as human for a little while”- Eckhart Tolle
When you connect to this place, you automatically begin walking your highest path, the path that will allow you to experience life at its highest expression for your soul, in order to expand your level of consciousness.
In order to find your highest path here are 5 top suggestions you can take:
1. Live Your Truth
What is your deepest truth and what does it really mean to live it?
Nestled deep within us all is our authentic truth, and when we live from that place we instantly connect with our highest selves and our highest path.
Being authentic is about standing up for what you truly feel and desire without fearing judgement, fearing that you won’t be liked or fearing what other people will think or say. It is about honouring your soul and respecting yourself on the deepest, most compassionate level.
Part of being authentic and living your truth is also about owning up to and taking responsibility for your deepest desires, wants and needs without feeling the need to lie, manipulate or fall into the trap of the ego.
Your authentic self is truly about accessing the deeper parts of you (your soul) and then living from that place.
2. Follow Your Passions and Talents
We all have talents and we all have passions and following our highest path requires us to bring both of these ingredients together to create our very own secret sauce.
All of us are born with or acquire natural talents in this life whether it’s teaching, baking a cake, working out complex equations or singing.
These talents are your blessings in this life and following them is going to allow you to serve not only yourself but also others.
Alongside your talents are also your passions; the things you feel called to do and have a strong affinity for. By following your passions you instantly connect to the vibration of creativity and abundance which helps stimulate the flow of your life.
Sometimes our talents are not our passions and our passions are not our talents, but know that your mission is to bring the two together in order to create the perfect balance.
3. Commit to Taking Risks
We all get caught up in the trap of taking life far too seriously and viewing opportunities that come our way as huge ‘risks’ that need to be approached with caution.
While it is sometimes necessary to practice caution to protect ourselves and others, some of us move through life feeling so afraid of making the ‘wrong’ decision that it stops us from making any decision at all.
Know that life will never bring you anything you can’t handle and that sometimes, taking a risk may not be as much of a ‘risk’ as you are chalking it up to be in your head.
Life is all one big experience anyway and sometimes that means taking risks in order to reap the rewards.
Just know that whatever path you choose that you should always commit to it, for hesitating can often lead to disaster. Much like when you are driving, a hesitant driver can be a dangerous driver and the same is true for life!
Commit to your decisions, take responsibility for them and know that whatever ‘risks’ life brings your way that you will move through them as long as you commit to them.
4. Don’t Be Afraid to Say No
Have you ever had an opportunity come your way that sounded too good to refuse but something just felt off about it?
Many have a fear of missing out and sometimes this can pressure us to make a decision that we perhaps wouldn’t have made otherwise.
Things may sound wonderful on paper and may be exactly what you thought you were looking for, but if something feels off, if something doesn’t sit quite right with you, then don’t be afraid to say No.
Trust that whatever is meant for you will always find you. Whatever is meant to come your way will always come your way, and if it comes in a form that you are not ready or willing to accept, you don’t have to feel pressured to follow through.
This also comes back to living your authentic self and not allowing other people to sway your decisions or influence your choices.
We don’t live in a vacuum, life is always presenting many opportunities so don’t feel that you have to say yes to every single one, everything will come around again if it needs to.
5. Trust your Intuition
Trusting your intuition is key to tapping into your highest path because it is the way in which our highest self or our soul communicates with us.
Anyone who has ever had an intuitive hunch will know that there is no rational way or words to describe it. It is simply a ‘feeling’ or an inner knowing that seems to be constantly guiding us if we are open and willing to hear it.
Know that the more you trust your intuition, the stronger it will become and the better you will be at listening and identifying it.
When it comes to walking your highest path it is impossible to make a wrong move. Every experience in your life is ultimately leading you to your highest path, making it all part of your destined journey.
There are however, clues and signs that you are walking your highest path such as synchronicity and a general overall feeling of being in the flow of life.
Walking your highest path allows you to move through the world with ease and grace. It doesn’t mean that you will never have struggles, but it does allow you to have an ultimate knowing that you are on the path made exclusively for you, and at the end of the day, that feels good.
