The ego is a topic that I am very passionate about, becoming aware of the ego has changed my life and helped to level up year after year.
When I was younger, I had a very active, mean and loud ego voice. I refer to it as the mean girl at school because to me this brings the perfect visual to mind. I dealt with my fair share of mean girls at school and I felt like my ego voice was an extension of that!
The ego voice has various names, Buddhists call it the monkey mind, other people call it the inner critic. What ever you chose to call it, it is that voice that belittles you, stops you achieving your dreams, keeps you small, makes you feel stupid, stops you moving forward with your life. Do you know the voice I mean? For me, it normally sounded something like this; "why did you say that, you're so stupid" or "I wouldn't even bother applying for that course, you'll never get in" or "they don't like you because your so wierd and awkward" to name just a few ego voice statements that were on repeat for me.
Over the years, as my spiritual awakening picked up the pace and my awareness of myself grew, my awareness of the ego voice also grew.
Awareness alone has the power to dilute the ego, meditation also helps to quieten it or your can use NLP techniques to literally turn down the volume. Combine any techniques that work for you and you will be well on your way to up-levelling your beautiful life.
The ego voice is the negative, fearful voice whereas your soul voice is your ultimate cheerleader, always cheering you on and guiding you with love. The ego voice will be much louder than your soul voice though, so it takes some quiet time to tune into your soul voice. You soul voice doesn't doubt you for a second, it knows the greatness you are capable of and stand beside you the whole way. Basically the ego voice is negative and the soul voice is positive and loving.
Are you ready to move beyond the limitations of you ego and your comfort zone into the limitless possibilities of the universe?
I recently had a blog post published on Sivana East - Awareness of the Ego. It is a topic that I could talk about for hours about! Head over to their website and check it out.
