CONNECTING WITH YOUR HIGHER SELF
Entering your higher self can be defined as a way of becoming a more evolved version of yourself, where you evaluate yourself and your spirituality. Think of it as shedding your skin, removing all negative energies to reveal a renewed version of yourself. It also has an element of living in the moment and reaching a place of joy and inner peace where you become balanced and calm in your response to life. Reaching a state of higher self can be achieved through opening your third eye, which we explain how to do below. In order to be your true and authentic self, you must first take the steps to become your higher self.
SO WHAT IS THE THIRD EYE?
The third eye is your 6th Chakra and no it is not a physical eye (although that would be pretty cool). It is a pathway to open and explore your spiritual mind. It is situated between your eyebrows and above the bridge of your nose and is called the pineal gland. When a state of enlightenment is reached the pineal gland (or third eye) is unblocked, allowing feelings of confusion, jealousy and stubbornness to fade away. The third eye allows you to connect with your higher self as it connects you into a state of clairvoyance and spiritual awakening, meaning you can become your authentic self. This is also how you connect with your higher energies, guiding you to a place of joy and happiness.
HERE ARE SOME OF OUR TIPS TO OPENING YOR THIRD EYE:
- Physically touch your third eye, it will connect the mind and soul with the physical body.
- Positive visualisation connects your desires with your reality. By visualising a state of higher self it will develop into becoming your higher self.
- Periods of silence and controlled breathing during the day can increase your equilibrium and allow for mental clarity.
- Meditation is a key factor in opening your third eye and reaching your higher self. We recommend crystal meditation with a citrine crystal but other meditations such as clairvoyant and aura meditations work well too!
- Exercise and practise yoga. Exercise acts as a way to increase endorphins which is a hormone that makes us feel happy and euphoric.
- Educating yourself and reading. You may be looking to learn more about yourself, or others, or both. It is important to take time to educate yourself on the environment around you.
- Reflective journaling is another way to become more aware of your feelings and goals moving forward.
- Finally bathing and essential oils, they are amazing for your chakras and self-love. Here is the LLIO bath and body guide to reaching your higher self.

Bathing with essential oils is crucial in reaching your higher self as essential oils stimulate the pineal gland. The LLIO Higher Self Bath and Body Oil is a blend of citrus essential oils with lemon, bergamot, sweet orange and black spruce enriched with apricot and luxurious rosehip as the base of the product. This oil is perfect for those who are looking to reach their higher self whilst nourishing and soothing the body. It is also infused with citrine, the stone of joy and abundance.
The LLIO Higher Self Crystoil is infused with Citrine a stone of glowing energy. It brings you vibes of clarity, creativity and positivity. It will re-energise your self-esteem and aid future manifestations. The stone is linked to the solar plexus chakra (also known as the third chakra) - the centre for a strong sense of self-worth and personal control. The yellow stone is supercharged to help develop these areas. It alleviates anger and mood swings, while encouraging happiness and reducing destructive tendencies.
Journalist Twiggy Jalloh’s article for British Vogue titled ‘8 Fresh Aromatherapy Oils to Help You Bring The Outside In’ featured the Higher Self Crystoil. In her article she states that ‘aromatherapy is one of the best tools at our disposals when is comes to sustaining a sense of inner peace and comfort in trying times' and we could not agree more. 2020 has been a turbulent year for all of us, finding our higher self to help us navigate stress and anxieties enables us to still reach our goals.
