Hi Erin. Many thanks for the link. I've read through it and it's starting to make sense. I'm going to go through it more carefully and meditate on it. I was mistaken in thinking that the Higher Self was a separate entity; I just need to tune in more deeply into my own consciousness. The idea of the Higher Self being another person to speak to is just a visual aid to help one focus. I was taking it too literally. Thanks again.
