“Higher Self is a song that talks about your transition from the lowest version of yourself to your best version and mastering your higher self. Inspired by a period of time in my life where I felt vulnerable, and lost, trying to follow what everyone else wanted me to do. Finally realizing that we’re all unique and have our own purpose and trademark in life. Getting out of my comfort and tapping into my spiritual higher self for guidance and forgetting about all the negativity & obstacles around me that were trying to pull me down in life.” – Ester Anaya
