This understanding of the True Self comes from Betsy Bergstrom — that the True Self holds the blueprint of who we could be if everything had gone perfectly in our lives. It is the part of us that is connected to the divine, to the field of universal intelligence. Connecting with the True Self, you can familiarize yourself with the blueprint and become recharged by filling up with soul power. For people who are sensitive, it can be overwhelming to go through this world with so much energy being thrown our way. While the tendency is to contract and become small, the real protection is in becoming big, in the sense described at the end of the meditation.

Notice how your true self communicates with a feeling? with sounds? with words? Invite your true self to come a little closer and then closer still and then finally let it become part of you come back to terra firma letting the mist of terra firma wash over you notice how your true self can expand and become very very big and then it bring back closer to your body letting it coalesce
