We Set Boundaries
There are some boundaries that are entirely healthy. For example, when you decide what kind of relationships you’re willing to have, you’re setting healthy boundaries.
More specifically, when you don’t pick up the phone to hear a friend’s negative rant at 3am, you set a boundary to preserve your well-being.
However, there are other sorts of boundaries that keep us trapped in low consciousness. These refer to boundaries in thinking for the most part.
In particular, when we’re in low consciousness we think we begin and end with our bodies (or, perhaps, with our bodies and souls).
In contrast, when we make the shift to high consciousness, we’re aware that everything in the universe is made of the same universe.
It’s no longer clear where we end and other people, the sky, and the earth begin. For example, consider water as a metaphor. When a drop of water rains down from the sky and adds to a river, we can’t identify it once it joins that river.
To be in higher consciousness, we need to realize that universal energy is like this. In other words, it’s impossible for us to be separate from other energy in the universe.
When we internalize this, we feel differently about ourselves. We no longer feel alone or isolated, and we also come into our own power.
Our knowledge of ourselves as part of a wider collection of energy makes it easier to see how we can exert influence over other parts of the universe.
The idea of manifestation suddenly seems easier and more straightforward, as the things we want to attract are already part of ourselves in an important sense. Now, let’s consider the limitations we impose on our minds, and look at how to stop limiting beliefs.
Our Minds Are Limitless
People say “Nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it”, but many struggle to really accept this. All of us have limiting beliefs that suggest we are not able to get the things we want or be the kind of people to want to be.
We get stuck in lower consciousness when we entertain these negative beliefs and allow them to box us in. We don’t try to achieve all we could, and we live our lives in a narrow way.
Once you realize and embrace the idea that everything and everyone is made of the same energy, it’s easier to see how our minds are limitless.
After all, your mind is made of the same thing as the mind of the person you most admire, and the parts of nature you find most beautiful. The key to staying in this mindset is to call out your limiting beliefs when they come into your mind. Expose them, and challenge them with positivity.
Is A Shift In Consciousness Possible?
Of course, you might still be skeptical about whether you can make this move from lower to higher consciousness. One of the most important things to keep in mind here is that no one is suggesting you become anything other than who and what you are.
Instead, the suggestion is that you can wake up to your full potential.
In other words, you can wake up to who you really are, and to the abilities that have been dormant until now.
Let’s look at some easy ways you can start to elevate your consciousness today, and how you can make a longer-term life goal of elevating your consciousness.
Easy Ways To Elevate Your Consciousness
If you’re looking for quick and easy ways to raise your consciousness, the good news is that there are plenty of little changes that make an impact.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Meditate for 10-15 minutes every day, even if you simply do the more straightforward breathing exercises.
- Listen to music that moves you.
- Practice genuine forgiveness, letting go of grievances. Put yourself in the other person’s shoes, and understand why they acted as they did.
- Every week, go somewhere beautiful and take in nature.
- Create a quiet space for contemplation, where you can meditate, journal, or just relax.
- Commit to doing a small act of kindness each day.
- Keep a gratitude journal in which each day you write down three moments you felt more connected to the world around you.
- Practice yoga or dance and become increasingly aware of the movements of your body.
Make A Personal Realization To Achieve Highest Consciousness
A longer commitment to attaining and maintaining higher consciousness amounts to a commitment to self-realization.
To become steadily more self-aware about your thoughts, your actions, and your needs. You should keep a daily journal in which you’re completely honest about what you experienced and thought.
In addition, as noted above, a commitment to meditation helps to keep you connected to your body and to what you’re feeling moment by moment. Together, these two habits need only take 30 minutes per day – an entirely sustainable change to your life.
Of course, this kind of self-realization requires engaging with challenges in the early days.
You will have old, outdated ideas about who you are and who you should be.
Reaching higher consciousness requires examining those old ideas and replacing them with ones that are accurate.
Often, this means looking at where your self-conception came from.
This can be painful, especially when it requires going back to early childhood relationships and first loves. However, the upshot is that you emerge a more self-aware, empowered person who is no longer scared to engage with their full potential.
And, crucially, this version of yourself will be better than ever before at manifesting their dreams.
