posticon Your Higher Self by John Cali

Posted on   by

One of the responses to last week’s newsletter article, “Depression,” asked how Spirit and I define the term “higher self.”

Here are some excerpts from our reader’s response, and her question.

Hi John:

Thanks for today’s newsletter. I enjoyed it as always.

I’ve got a question for you. How do you define your “higher self?” I’ve heard it defined as your God self, but do you communicate with yours? Is it something you should be in touch with every day?

Our recent newsletter articles, including “Should Healing Be Easy?” from last week, have brought feedback from both ends of the spectrum. Some folks resonate with the messages while others are turned off. I suspect this week’s article will be another of those.

I recently read a short article by Andrew Weil, M.D. on depression. Dr. Weil said “Depression is rampant. The World Health Organization estimates that major depressive disorders will become the second largest cause of disability worldwide by 2020, exceeded only by heart disease.”

The feedback ranged from “unsettling” and “maybe you are after feedback from conflict” to “Thanks to Spirit for never wavering.”

Many of us, especially when we were young, had a hero or heroine in our lives.

John Cali

Sometimes, we had more than one. These were people we looked up to, people we wanted to model ourselves after.

At various times in my younger years, my heroes ranged from cowboys to politicians (believe it or not!) to religious figures, and so on.

Who have been some of your heroes and heroines? I think the answer to that question can teach us a lot about ourselves.… Read more
