What is an Inner Being or Core Self?
The Inner Being is the life force of humans – a consciousness that has no physical form. It is our core spiritual nature, our inner self which is infinite. You might refer to this part of you as your Higher Self, or Soul Essence.
You might have already developed a personal relationship with your Inner Being in the form of a trusted spirit guide. Or you might perceive it as an angelic energy. Inner Beings often show themselves in a form that they know will resonate and be trusted by their human incarnations – that’s us.
I learned a great deal about the Inner Being or Core Self from speaking to Robert Hughes, who died in World War I. He spoke through his medium in full trance from 2012 to 2014 (see more below).
The Inner Being knows us better than we know ourselves. It is neither male nor female and is the culmination of the experiences of all the incarnations it has had. Our Inner Being loves every aspect of us – in joy and in sadness, in everything we have experienced. Our experiences are a big part of its learning and development. And everything we have ever experienced or thought will forever be part of our Inner Core Self.
The consciousness that is our Inner Being has a fast vibration in wave-form, not physical particle form. Therefore it is not able to manifest directly in this earth environment. It wants to have experience on the earth to grow and learn. So it projects a small part of itself into this environment in physical form into a human body. All life on earth needs physical form, that’s why the Inner Being manifests a flow of its energy into our physical body for the duration of our life.
Where does the Inner Being’s energy come from?
One simplified analogy is to show the layers of consciousness like a set of Russian dolls – the physical human is the smallest solid doll and the non-physical continuum of its source energy is represented by the hollow dolls. The human’s Inner Being is at the 1st layer of hollow doll – non-physical energy. And the first layer Inner Being has its own Inner Being which exists at a higher vibrational layer. We can call this layer 2 for ease of understanding (the next bigger hollow doll). And that layer 2 Inner Being has its own layer 3 Inner Being and so it goes on through the layers of higher consciousness.
The layers are not intended to suggest any kind of hierarchy. This is just a way to denote the speed of vibration of a consciousness at a point in time. The more experience a consciousness has, the faster its vibration. But an Inner Being with vast experience and a fast vibration could still choose to keep a lot of its energy at Level 1, for example, if it wants to have lots of physical manifestations on earth.
The layers are like the cogs in a clock. Some spin fast, some slow, but all must spin for the clock to work. So Inner Beings are no more important than humans. We influence our physical environment (Earth), they influence the non-physical environment. The non-physical part of our being exists in waveform, the physical part – us – exists as particle form.
Do we have free will?
Experienced Inner Beings can sustain many humans at once. So your Inner Being will flow its life force energy into other humans in other places on Earth. Though you are unlikely to ever meet one, it serves no purpose. They usually choose to manifest across a wide range of geographical and social/economic conditions to have the best probability of a wide variety of experiences. Probability, because the actual experiences are driven by human choices, not the Inner Beings. Your Inner Being has chosen to manifest into a particular place and time, but your life plan is not written; you determine your life as you live it. It’s the human manifestation that does all the choosing in this physical world. The Inner Being can only try to influence its human part by flowing emotions to guide it, if the human is spiritually and emotionally open enough to perceive the intuitive guidance.
The life purpose of a human has two aspects. Firstly to use our free will and judgement to deliberately attract what we choose in each moment. So we experience life fully, with all of its joys, frustrations and fears. All experiences, both achievements and failures, enrich the Inner Being. And consequently enrich the Inner Being’s Inner Being at the next level, and its Inner Being etc. Therefore all our experiences contribute to the ongoing evolution of consciousness. Consciousness is, and will always be, evolving – “ever becoming, never done”. The second part of our role is to influence our physical environment (Earth) and the beings (humans/animals) which share it with us.
How do humans fit into the Collective Consciousness?
Each physical human knows itself as a unique consciousness. But in each moment of our lives, full awareness of our consciousness flows back to the ONE SOURCE via the chain of Inner Beings. There is only ONE ENERGY. All individual consciousnesses are all projected energy from this single source. Consciousness is a ‘system’ of billions of linked parts (you and I, our Inner Beings, their Inner Beings and so on). Each has its own experiences, but all experiences flow to drive the growth and development of the whole. So every incarnation is a partnership between the human part and the vaster, non-physical self. The non-physical self exists as a continuum of layers of consciousness of different vibrational levels.
Only the Inner Being can flow energy to its human part. It’s not possible for another consciousness to flow to them. In clairvoyance, it’s the Inner Beings who pass messages to the Inner Being of the medium. The medium’s own Inner Being then flows the message to the medium to be passed on.

How do you get to know your Inner Being?
The best way to amplify your connection to your Inner Being is to sit with it each day in quiet meditation. Let it show you its truth. You won’t find the truth in any book or any one religion. It can’t be written in any one book because it’s ‘ever-becoming’ – always evolving. You can learn to know your Inner Self as that wiser, more experienced part of you. Start to become aware of that inner voice, your ‘gut feeling’, and listen to what it’s telling you. It’s your own in-built inner guidance system. It feels more like the gentle voice of your heart rather than the shouty voice of your head.
Many people never get to know their Inner Being as they never meditate. This form of connection is important to grow your ‘conduit’ to your Inner Being, your soul essence, from your side. The best way to meditate is to simply connect to your soul essence (no music or images). However, if you aren’t used to meditating, you might need to use a guided visualisation to help you in the beginning (there are many on Youtube or Apps such as Calm.com). The best time to meditate is before sleep. When you go asleep with conscious connection to your Inner Being, it leaves your conscious mind in a state where it is easier for your Inner Self to work with you through the night.

The Inner Being can flow more of its energy into you when you are happy. Being happy raises your own vibration so you are able to receive more of the flow. The easiest and quickest way to do that is to find something to laugh at! Read more in Change Your Negatives to Positives.
What happens if we don’t have a good connection with our Core Self?
Prolonged negative thinking and low mood can cause the connection to the Inner Being to become pinched off. So the flow of energy is not fast enough. Then the Inner Self can’t get through enough life force energy to sustain the physical body properly for optimum health. Therefore, over time, illnesses can develop. Learn how to Free yourself from negative thinking.
Also, when we don’t take regular exercise, stagnant energy builds up in our energetic pathways. So our bodies are less able to receive a faster flow of the energy from the soul essence. Taking more exercise speeds up our metabolism so we are better able to receive the full flow of life force energy. Read more about What creates Illness.
A very effective way to expand your connection to your Inner Self is to have the Tonal Alignment. This is a two-part spiritual activation which firstly helps to clear your body’s energetic pathways of the ‘sludge’ that has built up from difficult life experiences, low mood and lack of exercise. Secondly it enables your Inner Self to flow energy into you more effectively, to speed up your vibration and raise your awareness.
