Higher Self Now
By William Buhlman
Being a long time fan of William Buhlman’s work in the field of Out of Body Experiences, we got in touch to find out about his latest book Higher Self Now!: Accelerating Your Spiritual Evolution; where he explores the subject of developing higher states of consciousness both in and out of the body.
William Buhlman, author of Adventures Beyond the Body: How to Experience Out-of-Body Travel, The Secret of the Soul: Using Out-of-Body Experiences to Understand Our True Nature, and Adventures in the Afterlife. He conducts a six-day intensive OBE workshop at The Monroe Institute in Faber, Virginia. His new book, Higher Self Now! details how to create the ideal mindset and preparation for an enlightened spiritual transition from the physical to the non-physical.

Nonphysical Energy Dimension
Most of us are taught from birth that if we live a good life and have faith in a religious doctrine we will automatically go to a heavenly paradise. Regrettably, this is a false assumption. At death a great majority of humanity will enter a nonphysical energy dimension existing just out of phase with the physical world. People are met by loved ones, reunited in a pleasant, physical-like environment. The many ills, pains, and harshness of the physical world are a thing of the past. There are no wars, starvation, or death in this new reality. On the surface, the new environment appears perfect and pristine when compared to our past physical existence.
As such, most people remain unaware that countless other realities are available, locations that are far more magnificent and thought-responsive. The physical-like environments that most assume are the ultimate heaven are actually the epidermis of the continuum of dimensions that make up the multidimensional universe. By our own actions we have essentially settled for and accepted the energy reflections of Earth instead of the glorious realities of the higher-vibrational dimensions that are our true spiritual home. With enhanced knowledge we can expand our ability to enter and navigate the countless thought-responsive dimensions of the afterlife. Armed with self- knowledge, we become empowered and can fulfil our destiny as an evolved soul.
Becoming Aware of our Energy
The energy dynamics of the afterlife are completely different than the laws of physics in the physical world. Each thought and emotion is a specific energy frequency. Due to the subtle energetic nature inherent in nonphysical environments, focused thoughts and emotions will mold our reality in the afterlife. Because our state of consciousness determines our afterlife reality, it becomes critical for us to focus on our mindset and our spiritual readiness before our transition. See Chapter 3, Becoming Aware of our Energy Attachments. Our state of consciousness and beliefs directly influences our subtle nonphysical body and the environment we will experience after death. In fact, for over a hundred years metaphysical teachers have referred to the astral body as the emotional body.
Our thoughts can be viewed as personal energy projections that possess the creative power to shape our life. When we recognize this universal truth we can begin to take full responsibility for our individual thought projections. Any low-vibrational energy we hold, such as fear or hatred, can and will negatively influence our current life and our afterlife existence as well. As an awakening soul it is our task to recognize, confront, and remove the restrictive energies to which we cling. This is a central aspect of our growth because at death we carry our complete state of consciousness with us. There is a Twenty One Day Transformation Challenge in Chapter 4 that will help you to identify and address anything that could be blocking you from reaching your highest level of evolution.
There is no escaping our own mental baggage. We create the chains that bind us to the denser energy environments of the universe and we alone are responsible for the afterlife we experience.
