There has been a great deal written on the subject of the ego,
in the religious, secular and spiritual communities. Many of these
writings seem to view the ego as a negative influence and aspect of oneself,
when nothing could be further from the truth. The ego, as with all of
your personal characteristics and qualities, is simply another divine tool
that you designed to assist you in having this three dimensional life
experience. The ego is not something to be ‘battled’ - as so many
people seem to think. The ego is a part of who you are, and, like any
tool - the results it achieves - is based solely upon how the tool is used.
Before you incarnated to have the experience of being who you
are right now, you took great care to design the primary personality
characteristics, qualities and tools that you anticipated you would need, to
have the best chance at fulfilling the intent of your life blue-print for this
incarnation. One of those divine tools was your ego.
You knew that especially in the beginning of your life
experience, when you were living unconsciously or sleep-walking, that the
world in which you were choosing to enter, was a fear-based society.
This society would surround you with many negative messages, signals and
influences - all telling you in different ways...to be afraid. That you
could not succeed. There was no way to win.
Cue the magnificence that is your ego. :)
Your ego is the aspect of you that has helped you get through
the day, in spite of the numerous fear-driven blockades set up on this world
by the Illuminatti. For example, when you got that new job, you know the
one - the job that you ‘hoped’ you could do...but truth be
told...weren’t really certain you could do...it was your ego that got you up
in the morning. As you lay in bed on that first day and thought “Oh
no, maybe I shouldn’t have taken this job, I don’t know if I can do
this..” - your ego jumped in and replied “Of course you can, just
get up, get ready, go to work...you can do this...you’ll figure
it out...they wouldn’t have hired you if you weren’t the right
As so it has been, every day and night as you moved through
this fear-based world, your ego has been a driving force and support and
motivator behind many, many of your successes. It is a most wonderful
aspect of who you are, and it is to be cherished and appreciated for all that
it has given you. What most of you have been experiencing, that you view
as some sort of internal ‘battle’ - is the unique experience you have when
you awaken to your spirit.
When we wake up and start to live consciously, that is - we
realize that we are not physical beings - but spiritual beings having the
physical experience...we usually make a very abrupt shift internally to
connect and strengthen that connection to our spirit. This is a good
thing. :) But in this process, several things occur at once that
can be very confusing.
For starters, one of the major shifts that occurs is that we
begin to view the world, other people and the Universe - as a loving and
compassionate place. That’s a pretty big difference, since prior to
awakening, most of us viewed this world and Universe as a somewhat cold and
difficult place to live in. So, we discover our Self, our spirit - and
all the wonderful new things that go with our new perception of reality.
As we alter our feelings, thoughts and behavior to reflect this new reality we
have discovered, we realize that the only aspect of our Self that can be ‘in
charge’ now...is our spirit. This is, of course, as we originally
intended, but had forgotten within the 3D amnesia process. Once
rediscovered, all of our attention turns to spirit.
Up until now, your ego has been primarily in charge of you and
your life. It has been in charge and responsible for ‘making things
happen’ - because you put it in charge. It has been
the ‘boss’. No one knows you better than your ego does. And
the world in which it has been moving through, as per your perception...has
been a very fearful place. So what does it know and understand the best?
Fear. It knows everything that scares you, everything that makes you
feel insecure or unsure of yourself. Up until now however, it’s job
has been to help you ignore that fear and move ahead. It doesn’t know
the world or the Universe as a kind and loving place, that aspect of you has
had no (or very little) feedback or life experience to support that theory.
Of course it doesn’t understand what you’re doing now, and of course that
aspect of yourself is going to initially react in the only manner that it
knows how to - in fear. Thus, begins that misperception of the internal
‘battle’. Since the ego is now afraid, what tool or method do you
think it will use to try to regain that control and importance that it held
with you for so long? Fear of course. That is what it knows best,
since that is the primary place of being that you have been living in.
So it appears to ‘sneak up’ on you, to create fear within you when
you’re ‘not looking’ - to try to draw you back into old behavior
patterns and perceptions - thereby regaining it’s status and value to
It’s afraid because he/she is not only being utterly ignored,
it is now being told that it is valueless, and in many cases - almost evil.
A thing to be denied and shunned. This you do to an entire aspect of
yourself. Everywhere you turn you hear...“The ego is bad, put it
away in a box and never let it out - it will lead you to fear and
destruction”. What a horrendous thing to do with a divine tool, that
if you are honest with yourself, is one of the main reasons you are still
here. Your ego helped you navigate through this fear-filled world and
you’re still standing today. It is this aspect of yourself that
encouraged you to try, when all others told you not to bother because you
would fail. When the kids at school teased you and said and did
mean-spirited things to you, your ego moved to the front and told you that
they were wrong. To ignore them, you had great value and you mattered
and to keep trying no matter what anyone else said. And what do we do in
return for all those years of service and protection? We suddenly turn
around and label it evil, destructive and become ashamed of it. How
would you react to being treated that way? Would it hurt? Would it
scare you? Of course it would, and of course it does. By
responding to our ego in this way, we are consciously and intentionally
choosing to cause harm to a very important and very valuable aspect of our
What our ego really needs, is to be taught how to play on the
‘new team’ - the ‘love-team’. Until we awakened, the only team
it knew - was the ‘fear-team’. That was how we viewed and responded
to our life/world. It needs to be re-educated, embraced, loved and
taught about this incredible new world and Universe we have discovered.
That takes time and patience. Most importantly, it takes love,
understanding, support and compassion. Think and speak to your ego as a
‘she’ or ‘he’ (depending upon your gender) - almost like another being
within yourself. Reassure her/him that you appreciate and value all that
it has done for you these many years. Tell it how important it is to who
you are and who you will become, and that you know how strange this new
experience feels to it. You understand how frightening it is to no
longer ‘be in charge’ or to be ‘the boss’, and ask him/her to trust
you in this, until it can see the results that you can create by taking this
new approach to life. Reassure her/him that it matters, it is very
valuable (just as valuable as any other aspect of who you are) and cherished,
and that it will never be forgotten. Explain to it that in order to
really enjoy life as you (including your ego aspect) desired, all the aspects
of who you are must work together and allow the spirit to guide you.
Remember, your ego is a divine tool. If encouraged, it
will remember the original plan you created before you incarnated. It
will remember it’s original intent to support you in
succeeding to have the experience you developed in your current life
blue-print. It was only through the natural confusion that we experience
within the 3D amnesia process, that this original purpose was forgotten and
‘twisted’ around (with the ego leading instead of supporting the spirit).
There is no battle to be waged with our ego. It is not
something to be shunned or fought with. By doing so, we are hurting our
Self. If the ego could not support our highest and most divine intent in
this life, we would never have created it and incorporated it into who we are
in the first place. As in all things, the best gauge for deciding how to
react to challenging situations like this, is to ask yourself one question:
What would love do?
