How to know if messages are coming from your mind or your Soul?

This question is one of the main perplexities in spirituality for every spiritual ever…

Each spiritual walking the Path wonders quite often if what he/she gets by messages, dreams, visions, apparent synchronicities, etc., is real guidance coming from his soul or spiritual guides, or just coming from his mind and ego.

Factors that influence understanding the source of a message

There is no easy answer to discern between the two sources, and from my research the difference between the typical self-deluded spiritual thinking that the majority of what he feels or receives as messages is guidance from his soul or some other higher entity, and a truly advanced seeker is given by following factors:

1) how exercised in an advanced type of meditation is the seeker

2) how many limiting beliefs he released until then from his subconscious,

3) how good he is in shifting his awareness from his mind into his heart in order to connect with his soul

4) if he has access to true higher souls to check and calibrate with them

5) how sensitive to energies he became by exercise, so he attained spiritual discernment

6) how humble he is

If the spiritual seeker is advanced in all of the above he necessarily will also have a more advanced soul like in at least a 4.5 vibration (awareness level on chakra scale), and a body close to 4.0 vibe or more also on chakra scale, while average people are about 3.5 vibe both soul and body on chakra scale.

Vibration level influences the discernment ability of a person

A higher vibration level (awareness actually) both for soul and body will give anyone a higher discernment ability in telling which are body/ego feelings and which are messages from his soul. Therefore, a true advanced spiritual will be able to discern with over 70% accuracy if a message comes from his ego or soul.

Another point I want to stress: some small level of ego is ok, it’s actually necessary on this planet and level of 3D humanity, as long as it doesn’t inflate; one just needs to keep it under control. It’s nonsense when someone says one should completely erase his ego, it means he doesn’t understand just about anything about spirituality and energy mechanics in Creation. Without the ability of being assertive for instance, how else can a seeker keep some personal space so as to be able to make choices and progress?

Practice makes the difference

As you see, one needs quite some extent of correct spiritual practice as described above before starting to discern with some accuracy between the ego and soul messages. So there is no trick or hack to be applied by the armchair spiritual to differentiate between the two.

One thing is theory and another thing is practice, we should not get lost in spiritual theories and disregard practice, that is if we want to really progress on the Path...

As a general rule of thumb, if you want to find the answer to some life important question for you, I advise you to:

  1. Do first a meditation so to raise your body vibration some, and distance yourself from the lower vibrational environment around.

  2. If you use in your practice other awareness growth procedures do use them. They can be sacred music, sacred dance, asanas, etc.

  3. When you feel relaxed, at peace, and balanced inside, with eyes closed, ask your question. It must be a question you don't already know the answer, like "Should I marry this person?", "Should I accept this job offer?", etc, not something mundane like "Should I go and fix my car?"

  4. The answer that comes to you in less than 3-4 sec is the answer you were looking for. If it takes longer chances are your mind had time to concoct and answer based on your beliefs and gave it to you.

All the preparation before asking the question are actually aiming to open a secure and clean channel between your mind and your soul, or even to your parent-soul or spiritual guides, who have a much higher knowledge than us.

Moreover, to increase accuracy, one can do several sessions of calibration before asking important questions, where I advise asking somebody to help you, so have an external independent reference.
