What (and where) is Higher Consciousness?

Until recently, the hardest part of running Zenquility has been concisely describing exactly what we do for our customers. If I was running a restaurant, it would be easy. “I make food for you to eat.” Bass player in an all chick-band (aka my other dream job)? You’d know right away that I make music. But since this business has evolved beyond just a massage therapy and energy healing practice, it’s hard to put into words just what we do here.

Then, inspiration struck me at a seminar a few weeks ago. Out of a clear blue sky, Spirit whispered in my ear “Center for Higher Consciousness.” Boom! Mic drop! These are the precise words I needed to describe what we can do for customers. But higher consciousness isn’t necessarily part of everyone’s vernacular, so let me tell you what I think it means and how you can achieve it.

Higher consciousness has been called many things – collective consciousness, Christ consciousness, Buddha consciousness, superconsciousness and God-consciousness, among others. We think of those names in conjunction with spiritual evolution and growth. Those words have a central commonality. I think of higher consciousness from two perspectives: the relative and the absolute.


It’s always possible to take a step higher in your consciousness from the point you occupy right now. In other words, it’s always possible to feel a little better than you currently feel. Whatever you know, you can know more. Whatever abundance you allow into your life, there’s more that’s right there in front of you waiting to come into your life. You’re just not able to see it from your current level of awareness or consciousness.


Many of us are being called to a common destination of shared higher consciousness. That’s why we feel compelled to seek abundance, explore spiritual laws, become more intuitive and so forth. Will we all reach the same level? Honestly, there’s no real way to measure or predict. Higher consciousness looks different for everyone, when it comes to how we interact with the planet, with each other and with God/Spirit/The Divine. While we may not be able to precisely measure, we are still on this journey together, and that’s why places like Zenquility are being created — to share the experience of achieving higher consciousness. And while current events see us becoming more and more divided, places like this help us come together and be reminded that there are others reaching out for a better way of living.

How Can You Reach Higher Consciousness?

You can begin by pursuing greater understanding of the world around you — both physical and metaphysical. In order to pursue this insight, you have to be open to new ideas that might directly conflict with beliefs you’ve held for your whole life. Next, you can allow yourself to release old emotional patterns and constantly reach for a better feeling place. As Abraham Hicks wisely puts it, the higher your emotional state, the higher your level of consciousness. Most of all, allow yourself to be guided by internal nudges and external signs, trusting that the whole Universe desires for you whatever you desire for yourself — including higher consciousness — because there is no separation between you and the rest of the Universe.

Some practices you can try include:

  • Meditating
  • Practicing mindfulness
  • Developing intuition
  • Communing with nature
  • Studying the teachings of spiritual masters

As a Center for Higher Consciousness, Zenquility offers a safe place for you to explore your sense of spiritualty and sense of self. The peace that we seek to bring to this room is the same peace we offer when you return to the outside world. Come join us at an event to see what we’re building right here in Haymarket. We look forward to taking this evolutionary journey with you!
