Raising your vibration will enable you to connect further with your higher self. The higher self is our higher consciousness or god’s consciousness it is our true self.
Your higher self gives you guidance whenever you ask for it, by sending messages to you through one or more of your six human senses. Which include seeing, hearing, smelling, feeling/touching, tasting and knowing. The more we use and trust our senses the stronger, accurate and more frequent the messages become. You can also use your intuition to guide you in all of your decisions in life regarding career, money and relationships.
Here are five simple things you can start doing now to raise your vibration to connect with your higher self:
Not forgiving yourself or others will block your connection to your higher self. Undealt with past hurts or personal mistakes will create negative feelings and thoughts that could stay within your sub-conscious and affect your emotions and thoughts in the present moment. If you are still attached with your past situations, it is hard for you to face the reality and your present situation. So, make sure that you choose to forgive and move on. You have to take actions to ensure that past emotions and thoughts will never affect your present moods and activities.
I use Hoʻoponopono it is an ancient Hawaiian Huna practice of forgiveness and cleansing. “Allows one to develop a working relationship with the divinity within and learn to ask that in each moment our errors in thought, word, deed or action be cleansed. The process is about freedom, complete freedom from the past.”– Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len
Ho’oponopono means, “to make right,” or “to rectify an error.” According to the ancient Hawaiians, error arises from thoughts that are tainted by painful memories from the past. Ho’oponopono offers a way to release the energy of these painful thoughts, or errors, which cause imbalance and disease. These are two self-forgiveness methods I have tried that work:

Simply repeat the four phrases together. To re-program the subconscious of the past negative thoughts and painful memories.
Please forgive me.
I love you.
Self-Forgiveness Exercise by Serge Kahili King

2. As you inhale, say your own name mentally.

you might say something like, “Shirley, I forgive you for
what you did at the party last night.”

Be grateful for your current experiences or people that have enriched your life. When you are aware of what you have received. Give thanks to the universe, higher self or guides for what they have given you. The more you express gratitude the more you will receive that for which you are grateful. The ways are have shown gratitude is by saying:
“Thank you, higher self for your guidance, healing, support and love.”
“Thank you, universe for bringing people into my life that gives me joy and love”
When I wake up one morning, my higher self, told me “I am perfect, love and accept yourself as you are.” I thought about the message and I realised that they were certain parts of myself I did not accept. What I did was I took a hard look at myself and wrote down the aspects of myself that I did not fully accepted and I said to myself “I accept myself for who I am.” I felt at peace and a lot lighter within myself.
I also recommend to write down all the positive things you have done and have accomplished, it does not have to be huge, it could be making someone laugh, helping someone with their shopping, etc. Go look in the mirror, place your hand on your heart chakra and say out loud all those positive things you have written. Start to visualize and think about the difference you have made in their lives and how grateful they felt towards you. Feel their loving energy pouring into your heart, clearing away all wounds, replacing with love.
Meditate everyday from 15-45 minutes a day is the fastest way to raise your vibrations. Once your mind is calm it is easier to connect to your higher self or guides, whether you feel the connection or not, your higher self or guides are there.

5.Mantra or Prayers

The powerful prayers and mantras that worked for me:
The Lord’s Prayer
who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily
And forgive us our
As we forgive those who
trespass against us.
Lead us not into
And deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom
and the power and the
Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
