What is the Higher Self?

QUESTION: Masters what is Higher Self? Which dimension is it on? Is it possible for 3D human to embody it? What is the difference and relationship of Higher Self and Oversoul? How does communication and advice from your Higher Self differ from Spirit Guides? ~Irina, USA

ANSWER: There are many human definitions for the term “higher self.” To us, it signifies the awakened portion of your soul that is not continuously within the consciousness of your soul’s human experience. “Oversoul” has been characterized as the totality of the soul in whatever state, in whatever dimension, however accessed by the consciousness of the human or the awareness of the nonphysical.

In point of fact, both terms mean that part of Source which was broken off and individualized.

As you can see from the definitions, the higher self is rarely, if ever, present in the physical third dimension. Since the oversoul is everything, a portion of it is wherever a piece of your soul exists in any dimension, physical or nonphysical.

When you are consciously accessing information from your soul, in whatever form, you are consulting yourself in another state of being. It is as though you have taken copious notes about a particular incident and are reviewing those long-forgotten facts.  You are the one who created or gathered the information in the first place. You have the ability to replay some events and to see what the results of your decisions were then and if they are applicable in this situation.

Spirit guides are different souls who have never been a part of you. They are like friends, instructors, and helpmates who are there to offer assistance. They will never tell you what to do because that would interfere with your freedom of choice, but they will help you see the choices you have.
