Is there a Higher Self??

So today, we take leave of the sub-personalities briefly. In psycho synthesis,  there are ways in which you could make the sub-personalities useful to you and develop those that could be supportive of you. Styles of sub-personalities are dependent on the events of your childhood and the environment you grew up in.

I know you're in touch with Personal Self, the one that observes and wills. Dr. Pettitt calls it the director. It is the centre of conscious Choice and Will. The Personal Self has been studied and written about in many disciplines.
What about the Higher Self? Not nearly as much. The Higher Self is the source of love, wisdom and inner strength and Pettitt likens it to the Composer. Do you hear your Higher Self? Yes - through symbols, inspiration, some dreams and through energies.

So in the Forgiveness Process, the Personal Self is looking up in your mind's eye, to your Higher Self in request.Even if you don't belief in the concept of your Higher Self, just try what I will relay to you in the next post. Before that the homework for now, is to write on a fullscap paper, all the negative beliefs you have about 1. Yourself, 2. parents & relatives, 3. women, 4. men, 5. family, 6. money, 7.sex, 8. wealth, 9. world, 10. anything else not mentioned here.

See you in a couple of days. Happy investigating!

Dr. Pettitt's choice of the word Composer for the higher self really resonates with me. I'm going to picture the image of a beautiful concerto composed just for me. Now all I want to do is learn to read the musical notes, play like a virtuoso, and ultimately bring to life the beautiful music that's been written for me.

I'm looking forward to your next post.

I'm glad, Well-quest. Higher Self is the composer while the Personal Self is the conductor and if the Musicians,ie the sub-personalities would harmonize by following the conductor, then the composition will be spectacular, awesome, etc...

Thank you for sharing this information. I agree that your personality depends on the place you grew up. I think self-actualization is the higher self.
