The superconsciousness is called the higher self, Christ consciousness or God consciousness. In ceremonial magic the term Holy Guardian Angel is used. The Holy Guardian Angel is above the personality and constantly flows into and through it. Our personality is a product of transformation. The better it is attuned to the Higher Self, the more the Higher Self is able to express itself in it.

Superconsciousness – Experiences gained in the individual incarnations support the process of developing to perfection. But until there, man feels separated from the divine. He feels attached to the earthly life and identifies with his personality, mind, feeling or body instead of regarding them as tools.

The Higher Self is in touch with the Lower Self (personality). But this contact is only incomplete because the intentional exchange with the lower self is missing. The real paths of magic lead to the union of the higher and lower self through the harmonization of self-consciousness and subconsciousness. In alchemy this union is called the chymical wedding. Once the parts of the personality are balanced and ennobled, the higher self may incarnate as a spirit point, allowing a conscious experience of contact. At that point the female and male aspects are under the guidance of the superconsciousness.

Establishing conscious contact with the higher self is part of the training system of the Hermetic Academy. Finally, the union with the higher self leads to death of the little “EGO”. Unlike the lower self, the higher self is immortal. The higher self outlasts earthly death. Magic is about the unification with the higher self, which binds us to cosmic life. In this case we have a conscious participation in real life and are guided by a higher hand. The higher self chooses the path of self-discipline and thereby expresses higher vitality and expansion of consciousness.
