I have been manifesting things for a long time now and the way it works with me is that when I want something, I ask the universe and then I become ready to receive it. I look out for signs and clues, pick up on them, follow them and then receive what I wished for.
But recently I was trying another method. It is not entirely manifestation though. I ask a question to my higher self during meditation and patently wait for an answer.
As I am able to completely quieten my ego and I know that it is not my mind that making up answers, I started getting answers from somewhere unexpected.
Whenever I ask some question, I wait for a couple of minutes and then I hear answers or suggestions from pieces of conversations I had in the past with my friends and family, especially with my mother.
Or I would get answers in my mother's voice; very quick remarks or just pieces of conversations.
BTW, my mother is alive and well, so the voice in not reaching me from the other side
Is this my higher self talking to me in such ways? Doesn't it have to have one voice? I am confused...
