Adam & the Higher Self

Please repost with this link at the top:  Reposted from The Awakening Website

The Ego and the Id is a prominent paper that was written in 1923 by Dr. Sigmund Freud as an analytical study of the human psyche. It is of fundamental importance in the development of psycho-analytic theory. In his paper, Freud wrote about what he called the ego, the id, and the super-ego.[i]

If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from Heaven. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I Corinthians 15:44-47 and John 4:16-17

From a spiritual perspective, it is your ego that was created as a survival mechanism when you descended in consciousness during the Fall of Man. But your super-ego, your Spirit, is still merged with God. So, as you awaken to this understanding, it is your Spirit who is carrying out God’s Divine plan for you.

Often referred to as your ‘higher self’, your Spirit carries with it the spiritual gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, claircognizance and intuition. Stored in a quantum state in your DNA, it is the multi-dmensional part of you that never left the Garden. And your sub-conscious mind is the gateway to it.

The man who enters by the Gate is the shepherd of his sheep. The watchman opens the Gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. John 10:2-3

As an information processor, the conscious mind can only process forty bits of information per second. But the sub-conscious mind is one million times more powerful. It is the sub-conscious mind that stores the past, but lives in the present. It is this mind that continuously replays in the present the events that have taken place in the past.

The ego is the one who rants, blames, defends, judges, justifies, whines, doesn’t forgive, never forgets, expects the worst and trusts no one. Dr. Sonia Choquette

The higher self has an entry point into your human energy field.  This point is about an arm’s distance above your head.  You can engage your higher self by ‘sending’ the feeling of gratitude, from your heart to that entry point.

But the first step in connecting with your higher self is to quiet the ego – the lower self who lives in your sub-conscious. If we clear from our sub-conscious any energies that we no longer need, we can connect to our higher self and reunite with our Spirit.

In Zen, a duality between Higher Self and Lower Self is not made because – if you believe in the Higher Self, this is a simple trick of the Lower Self. Alan Watts

    Alan is great. Reading a book of him right now. It’s important to understand we can’t find ourselves by looking through a binoculars, because we are binoculars itself. We will be searching forever 🙂

    Hello, interesting topic! But actually what Freud Called ID, Ego and SuperEgo is que equivalent of Flesh, World and the Devil. Or better put by the Bible: “For all that {is} in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” (1 John 2:16)

    The ID, is the lust of the flesh, with all its instincts (sexual, preservation, etc); The Ego is the Devil, which is the Ego, or the Pride of Life; And the SuperEgo is the lust of the Eyes, or whatever the world is offering and what we do to be part and accepted in it.

    Calling the SuperEgo, the Spirit is wrong, either in the psychoanalysis point of view as well as in the spiritual view.

    The Spirit is beyond apprehension. Its is hidden until the Ego and all lusts of life are surrendered to the feet of the Lord. That is, the Christ in us, who gave his life and abide in us. Every time we surrender to the lusts of life, we put our Christ to death. Thats why our sins killed Christ since the foundation of the world (Rev 13:8). Because what Adam lost (his death and fall) was the life of Christ in him, being left to itself (Ego) as his own god, doing his own self-will. Thats why we should deny ourselves and take our own cross in order to follow Christ (Mathew 16:24), because only when our Ego is put to death, Christ can become our life again.

    Thank God for Christ, our salvation!
    Bless you
