The Higher Self and the journey is takes to connect with this sacred part of you is a process that continues as you developmentally transform your body and mind until you naturally align into complete Higher Self attainment.
Higher Self connection depends on many variables such as the amount of densities, blockages and restrictions one has accumulated over a life time both at the level of the the physical body , but the emotional and mental pathways also.
How long it takes is also influenced by the unique karmic lessons that one has to untangle in this current life and of course one’s willingness to take responsibility for their journey such as making sure to not only follow instructions given, but to engage in the practices regularly.
The ‘Higher Self’ connection 100% makes living your most divine purpose a lot clearer, easier and thus more efficient, for that is your ‘Higher Self’s’ goal.
Living a life in full connection with your ‘Higher Self’ does not mean that you will never experience suffering again, but how you experience and respond to suffering does change.
Over time, through a dedicated practice, you will experience less suffering which brings many benefits!
