The Lowdown on Higher Self Intuitive Information
There are ways to tell if you are getting intuitive information from your higher self. Specific characteristics observed right away that indicate you are receiving soul-level intuitive information before seeing any tangible results.
Intuitive information from your higher self always has accepting and loving or benevolent qualities. If you are getting condemning information, such as harsh judgments and guilt, you are most likely receiving this information from your ego or an unhelpful spirit. Either way, shut down this communication as soon as you become aware of it and look again. Keep looking till you find a loving, expansive feeling. This loving feeling is wholly inclusive and leaves none of you left out or feeling unworthy.
Another characteristic of intuitive information from your higher self is that it will often come in very quietly – like a whisper. You may have heard phrases like "whispers of the soul" or "the still inner voice." This often is very true when your higher self is talking. However, some of us may have had an experience, usually during a physical crisis, where we hear a loud and clear voice to act and act now. Outside of this type of intuitive experience, I have noticed that intuitive guidance from my higher self will come in softly.
Intuitive guidance from the higher self is also patient, consistent, and relentless. What I mean by it being relentless is the information still comes in on a soft, peaceful channel, but the message remains consistent until you get it. Relentless information doesn't mean you will get incessant judgmental chattering that drones on about the same thing over and over; this is your most likely your mind talking to you. Your soul and God are consistent if it's for your highest good, and will not change their minds or give up on you. You will get the same guidance over and over until you get it, even if it takes a lifetime. God has all the time in the world and wants you to get it right. Not for him, but for you and your growth and fulfillment.
Lastly, intuitive information from your Creator and higher self will have a quality of peace. Our higher self is gentle. Even if we receive seemingly undesirable intuitive information from our soul and Creator, the information will still ride to us on a wave of peace. There always peace available to us when we are connecting to our Source. You can tell how connected you are by the level of internal peace you can maintain even under the most tragic circumstances. This peace is God's grace, and it's always available to experience through our intuitive function.
