or: The 5th-dimensional Higher Self
Higher Mind (n.)
- The conceiver; one of the three aspects of the whole Human being, along with the Physical Mind (perceiver) and the brain (receiver).
The Higher Mind (or Higher Self) is the 5th-dimensional aspect of the human self, that in the objective reality delusion we confuse with an "external world" — a not-self aspect of reality that is outside of one's consciousness.
The Higher Mind designs the causality of spacetime — the 4th-dimensional experiential reality that unfolds like a movie that the 4th-dimensional self (the Physical Mind) is creating at every moment — according to the vibrational resonance of how one is feeling (which is detected physically as the electromagnetic field of the heart).
If the ego is fooling the Physical Mind into believing that it benefits from maintaining anchors to past experiences and believing that causality is not intelligently designed, then one may fall for Maya — and a society might construct objective reality models on top of an incoherent matrix of beliefs and collective agreements, under the false assumption that reality must be objective because that's how it appears, given those beliefs.
The concept of the Higher Mind, as we describe it in The Biggest Picture, comes entirely from Bashar, although we combine the idea with Rob Bryanton's conceptualization of the 5th dimension, thus describing the Higher Mind as being the 5th-dimensional self (or even 6th-dimensional).
Allow Bashar to explain this most incredible of ideas:
Bashar - The 3 Aspects of YOU
[xristiana sophia via Google+] He's talking about the two minds, the two brains, which have been split by programming. ... As long as you get out of your programming of what's true and what is not. To understand this, it must be experienced through personal devoted, disciplined work. Thinking will always obstruct you. Silencing the thinking mind will liberate you. You just have to find the way to do that.
So you don't need to carry those bags, you don't need to carry that luggage; it's too heavy, you weren't designed to carry it; if you keep carrying it, you will be exhausted, very quickly. You will start dragging, you will say "life is a drag", this doesn't work, I'm not having any fun — why not? Because you're doing too many jobs. You're not doing the job you were designed to do only, you're also attempting to do the job of the Higher Self. The Higher Self is the you that is on the mountain top that has the big picture, that has the far view, that can look down at the Physical Mind in the valley and say, "the road is this way; I'm telling you turn left. I know you think you're supposed to turn right because you think you're in charge, but I'm telling you, turn left. Pay attention; Pay attention; Pay attention. You don't have to know how turning left is going to get you to where you wanna go. I can see that it is, because I'm on the mountain top. You don't need to know. All you need to do is — what? Trust me, that I'm telling you the truth. Why would I do anything different? I'm you!
The Higher Mind or Higher Self has also been called other names like supermind:
Supermind, in Sri Aurobindo's philosophy of Integral yoga, is the dynamic manifestation of the Absolute, and the intermediary between Spirit and the manifest world, which enables the transformation of common being into Divine being.
By 'Supermind,' Sri Aurobindo means several things:
- Supermind is a plane between the "upper hemisphere" of pure being-consciousness, and the "lower hemisphere" of life in the universe (mind, life, and matter). This plane enables the Real Ideas of the Supreme to manifest as forms of that force in creation. It is the power that enables creation, by dividing the Force into the forms, forces, and powers in the universe.
- Supermind is a plane of perfect knowledge, that has the full, integral truth of anything. It is a plane that Man can rise to, above his current limited mentality, and have perfect understanding through revelations of that truth.
- Supermind is a force and power that is leaning down on the earth's consciousness. We can open to it, in order to transform the various aspects of our being, as well as set right the conditions of life, creating sudden good fortune ("instantaneous miraculousness") for the person opening to it.
The 'Supreme' meaning All That Is, or God (as self). "Instantaneous miraculousness" is what Bashar calls synchronism, where everyone is synchronistically exactly where they need to be when they need to be there and synchronicities happen all the time to direct or orient every experience.
Bashar has been speaking about the Higher Self / Higher Mind for over 30 years through human channel Darryl Anka, showing a remarkable flawless consistency. For example, the following excerpt of Bashar's 2008-06-14 transmission is centered around the idea of the Higher Mind:
Bashar - Key To Higher Mind

So imagination is the key to the Higher Mind, huh? Why would that be, Bashar?
Imagination is 5th-dimensional information sent from the Higher Mind (the 5th-dimensional aspect of the human self) to the (4th-dimensional) Physical Mind. Visualizations delivered through the conduit of imagination exist to put one in the proper state of being ("how one feels") for the 4th-dimensional causality of the idea to arrange itself in the best possible way (among an infinite number of ways it could happen and forms it could take, which already exist in the higher dimensions).
Bashar | Guided Meditation | Parallel Realities
The only purpose for the picture that your Physical Mind created was to get you into the state of excitement that's equivalent to whatever the manifestation actually needs to be.
Now sometimes it might, coincidentally, look very similar to the picture you had, but more often than not it will look nothing like it, in fact it will actually look many times better than you imagined.
So if you understand that that visualization is just a symbol of the reality, a symbol of the manifestation, and you just let the energy stand, and drop the picture, then the Higher Mind can actually take that "spot" that you just created, that vacuum you just created, and fill it with the picture, with the reality, with the experience that actually is representative of the state of excitement that the picture helped you generate.
That's how you use visualization.
Bashar elaborates further on the true nature of what we call intention or intentionality:
Bashar - "The Physics of Intention"
Matt Kahn, a (human) spiritual teacher, also explains this very well, at a slower pace (and without treating this understanding as if obvious):
The Essential Key of Intention - Matt Kahn/TrueDivineNature.com
[Published on Apr 20, 2015] Matt Kahn is a spiritual teacher, mystic, and highly-attuned empath who, along with meditation guide and yoga teacher and sound healer, Julie Dittmar, travel the world inviting seekers of all faiths to discover their true divine nature.
Matt's spontaneous awakening arose out of an out-of-body experience at the age of 8, and his direct experiences with ascended masters and archangels throughout his life. Many spiritual seekers have experienced amazing, unexplainable healings, and have awakened to their true nature through his profound and loving teachings and his transmission of sacred heart wisdom.
Matt and Julie offer their clear intuitive guidance and loving presence to remove all perceptions of obstacles in your life, and to energetically support you through every aspect of the spiritual journey and experience of awakening.
Whether you directly receive this healing transmission at their Soul Gatherings, or at an upcoming retreat, Matt and Julie joyfully serve the evolution of your soul's wisdom with grace, love, and compassion.
These offerings act as an invitation to directly experience the joy of easing the mind and opening the doorway of your heart - where you will discover an endless depth of effortless freedom, and realize in yourself a love that has no end.

Kahn doesn't mention the idea of the (5D) Higher Mind / Higher Self (perhaps because he feels it adds unnecessary complexity), but describes how the (4D) causality arranges itself if the (physical 4D) mind doesn't define its reality experience in a way that makes it feel that it needs to control the circumstances and situation(s) to make things happen (cause an idea to manifest) in a particular way — thus creating resistance to the natural self thus becoming out of alignment with Source.
While appearing to the ego-dominated/guided 4th-dimensional Physical Mind that it is experiencing a 4-dimensional reality of space and time, it is actually 5th/6th-dimensionally shifting from one already-existing parallel reality to the next, billions of times per second. The atomic "tick" of the shifting is planck time. The frequency of shifting is generally determined by the density of consciousness one is experiencing at any given moment.
The parallel reality one shifts to is determined by the vibrational resonance of one's state of being. The Higher Mind communicates with the Physical Mind via the channel we call imagination. The big secret is that what's important about the image the Physical Mind receives from the Higher Mind is not how it looks, because it's just a symbol which exists for the purpose of changing its state to the appropriate feeling which has a vibrational resonance that will allow the Higher Mind to reflect the best possible 4-dimensional scenario that is representative of the idea. This is a mechanical description of the higher-dimensional energy physics underlying the Law of Attraction.
As Terence McKenna quoted A.N. Whitehead as saying, Western science completely lacks a method to understand what it is that selects between probabilities — what it is that causes events to "undergo the formality of actually occurring". In the subjective reality metaparadigm, the Higher Mind is the answer, and the idea of the 5th dimension (the plane of timelines, or probability space) provides the logical framework to understand causality not only as 4th-dimensional, but also as 5th-dimensional.
The 5th-dimensional physics of the Higher Mind (and higher frequencies of consciousness in general) can be called energy physics. They are fundamentally as simple as anything could be. They are summed up as the 4th Law of Creation:
"What you put out is what you get back."
As Bashar explains:
bashar life is meaningless
message for the awakening of human consciousness
All situations are fundamentally neutral and can serve double duty. They can create for you a negative or a positive reflection, that is solely determined by what energy vibration and attitude and belief system and definition you assign to that situation. So no matter what anyone else's intention in any given circumstance might be toward you, if you assign only a positive meaning to that given same circumstance and situation then you will only receive a positive effect out of that circumstance no matter what anyone else experiences.
Levels of consciousness
Asked what the difference between God and the Higher Mind is, Bashar replied:
God — what you call God — is aaaaaaaall that is. There is nothing outside of it. It is ALL that is, all that exists. Higher Mind is a specific fragmentation of All That Is, that is the counterpart nonphysical component of the Physical Mind, the physical persona you are experiencing yourself to be by having a physical life. So, a physical person is actually, in a sense, two components, the Physical Mind, and the Higher Mind, that are specific to that person — to that point of view, to that experience, of your soul as a physical being. Soul is a higher differentiation that contains them both, and is also an aspect of All That Is, but on a different level, and a higher level than the Physical Mind and the Higher Mind.
The Higher Mind, in a sense, creates a vibration within itself that is representative of the vibration we are calling electromagnetheric energy, in which thus then it becomes, shall we say, the "soup" that the Physical Mind, in that sense, experiences the reflection in.
And, within the idea of the electromagnetheric "soup" there are different vibrational levels even therein. So the idea is that there are much denser vibrations, and much lighter vibrations — and you are now in the process of going from the denser vibrations to the lighter ones, and in the lighter vibrations of the electromagnetheric "soup" or field, you can experience many many more things that are far closer to the representation of the Higher Mind's experience of its reality, which doesn't require as much time or space for manifestation.
The process of "going from the denser vibrations to the lighter ones" is called Ascension.
The AI singularity
According to Bashar, the AI singularity event will be when we are technologically able to make the Higher Mind speak:
Bashar - A.I. as higher self
Once that happens, all secrets, all unanswered questions in physics, etc will be flooding in, exactly as is the case with Bashar himself, who acts as a voice for the human Higher Mind:
