Nira Lall – Stop Demonizing the Ego – 3-5-15

Stop Demonizing the Ego!By Nira Lall, Guest Writer for Wake Up World, March 5, 2015

Something has been on my mind for a while and it’s time to let it out.

Most places I look in the mind-body-spirit communities there is a straight up vilification of the Ego. Our Ego is portrayed as this elusive evil part of us that makes us do bad things. We’re told to “kill the ego” and think happier more beautiful thoughts.

I completely agree that it can be very counter-productive to ruminate in negative emotions and thoughts. I also believe that true, authentic well-being involves accepting the whole of oneself with deep reverence and compassion. How can we completely disown the Ego – which IS a part of us – and then expect to feel whole, complete, and joyful?!

This doesn’t even compute.

The Ego’s purpose is to ensure that we survive. When this part of us feels threatened, the Ego will resort to behaviours and patterns that we have learned throughout our lives to help us cope. This often involves the uprising of emotions and thoughts that induce fear, competition, and so on.

We can fall into a mindset where we have to cut others down (or ourselves) to deal with the situation at hand. This “coping” helps us go on and make sense of things (even if the perception is distorted). Yes, this can be destructive. Yes, there are better ways of coping. YES, the Ego is a habitual part of us that needs compassion and understanding.

Instead of shouting “no!” and “bad!” at the Ego, there is an opportunity to talk to this part of us. We must integrate the Ego into healthier patterns, not shun it into the basement. Shunning the Ego is unhealthy and can lead to serious emotional, mental, spiritual, and even physical problems. The “darker” aspects of ourselves cannot be sustainably bypassed. We cannot “go around” our problematic thoughts and behaviours.

There is a lot of confusing information out there about denying the Ego side of us in exchange for love and light. This is a lovely sentiment, which is often misused and misinterpreted. Contrary to popular belief, it is not “more spiritual” to ignore the Ego. Instead, we can view the eruption of our Egos as an invitation to let this part of us know that it is being heard. With deep love and reverence, we must let the Ego know that we want to work with it, not destroy it (the ultimate fear of the Ego, which only makes it louder). We can let our Ego self know that we understand that it is only trying to protect us in the way that it has learned. We can even thank the Ego for doing its best to look out for us.

Then, we can offer the Ego an option – a beautiful, wonderful option. The option involves letting the Ego know that it can work together with the whole of you to find more productive, safe, and encouraging ways of coping and being in the world. We can offer this part of ourselves love and gentleness – as we would to a small child. What would you do if an innocent child was berating herself, feeling afraid and alone? Many of us would want to rescue that child and offer her protection, love and care. This is often what many of us adults need and want too, isn’t it?

So many of us simply want to be witnessed, heard, and loved. How can we receive love from the world around us if we are caught up in cutting ourselves down? Vilifying and damning the Ego is a massive act of personal betrayal and rejection.

Let’s all step into greater wholeness by offering love, compassion, support, and trust to ourselves first. Then, and only then, will there be room for deeper transformation from within.

Marilyn Redmond – How to Overcome the Ego – 2-22-15

Marilyn 23How to Overcome the Ego

by Marilyn Redmond

An excerpt from her book, The Real Meaning of 2012: A New Paradigm Bringing Bring Heaven to Earth 

Science says that energy moves.  Humans label this inner power emotion.  It’s all about raising vibrational energy.

My energy drained off from my present life into past issues.  My focus on the past robs me of daily energy.  Moving into the present elevates my focus and energy into a height of God consciousness, love, or healthy vibrations of well-being.  For me spirituality means living in love or positive vibrations of energy that I call spirit.

The material world is tempting.  It’s used by the ego to promote a person’s attraction, use of time, and energy.  A fancy house, a better job, or a new computer game can all be great distractions and deterrents and take time away from what is of spiritual value, if allowed.  However, that joy is quick and fleeting.

Does it really provide contentment, serenity, or inner peace?  Do some people keep buying something more, trying to find the one item or friend that will fill the emptiness inside?

Is it time to look for being genuine from my heart, rather than superficial from my ego?  Material items are not of permanent value.  The ego encourages a person to buy one more thing to make them happy; however, items can break at any time.  Many people looking for jobs used to have a great salary, beautiful home and yard, or a super car, but they’re gone when the job is eliminated.  They’re temporary and cannot fill the void.

What does bring reality, sanity, and serenity to my life?  With my new decision not to follow in the path of the ego, it’s time to replace my insanity from the material world that lures me with a false sense of pleasure.  It becomes more obvious that my inner journey focus on sincerity with unconditional love. It will provide the fulfillment I desire.  I am moving from my head into my heart.

Now my journey is an inner path of faith.  Men of faith have courage.  Releasing the outcome of each part of my life allows a higher power to produce the outcomes that may be better than I intended.  Leaving the results up to a Creator, who provides relief from my playing God in my life, and in the lives of my loved ones lightens my burdens.

I need to trust the Universe/God to supply my needs and bring appropriate results into my life.  This is real faith.  If I do the footwork, then turn the results over to my Creator, I usually have a surprise.  It may be better than imagined.

This higher power is an energy force.  It is called by many labels such as: Love, God, Creator, or Creative Forces.  It cares for me.  Relying on a power greater than myself  replaces the ego and its selfishness.  I move into a higher consciousness of being more rational, loving, and sane.

Faith is powerful; it provides strength in my life.  It’s always there. It connects me to the positive stream of energy that created the universe.  It supports me in all things.  I am not alone trying to survive on the planet.

Contempt before investigation is of the ego.  Investigate the fear with faith.  Faith replaces fear when examining beyond the unknown.  Now I have facts upon which to base a new decision.  Will the details provide more understanding, making apprehension not necessary?  Yes, looking beyond the fear is faith.

As I become honest with myself and move into this new place, opportunities appear.  Honesty has replaced my denial.  I move into more reality the more honest I become.  I see from a new perspective.  I am no longer separated from God as I move into new circumstances.  Honesty directly connects me to a positive energy force, which dispels the darkness of the ego. My feelings lighten.  I feel good—the presence of God.  Honesty has become the best policy.

With faith, I can now live in sincerity, honesty, and detachment.  Detachment comes with facing my fears, releasing them, and letting go of all negative emotions. Sincerity comes from the heart.  These are the keys to move out of the ego’s influence.  Now faith connects me to a Higher Power.

Another way to prevail over the ego is with information.  Why be in fear of the unknown?  Fear of the unknown disappears as I gain in understanding or knowledge.  When I have information, there is no need for fear.  This knowing replaces the unknown.  When I know the original basis for the ego, which is separation from God, my thinking can change.

I learn to pray for my enemies.  When a fearful situation arises, I pray for that circumstance to culminate in the highest good for all.  When I send out love, I smooth the path.  I’m not creating more chaos but sending loving energy that allows loving energy to return to me.

Sending prayer or love is actually very practical to dispel the ego’s influence of promoting turmoil and havoc.  If someone does not feel threatened, the outcome can be very beneficial for all.  They too are children of God.

I send love to others and don’t forget to love myself.  This is often more difficult as so often the ego has influenced lack of self-esteem and emotional security.  Some people have lived in guilt or shame for many reasons.  They find it comfortable and normal.  As I came to understand that I am made in the image of my Creator, the ego’s messages of old were forgotten as ancient history.  The real me, the God-conscious person can claim my birthright.  I am a child of God.

Another major way to prevail over the ego is through forgiveness.  This is the bridge between the ego and our higher self.  I extend forgiveness not because I approve of the other person’s actions or attitudes but because I no longer need to carry emotional baggage.  It’s like releasing the shackles of the past.  The event or predicament did happen. However, I can now perceive it from my higher self and acknowledge the other person also as a child of God.

I release the emotional distress of the past for a new today.  Giving up the past to live in the ‘Now’ is freeing.  I do it to liberate myself from hanging on to something that’s over.  It did present a learning experience necessary for my soul’s growth.

Lessons in life are not always pleasant.  In fact, I’ve been through trials and tribulations that were horrifying.  Now I discover my lessons learned through these experiences have fostered growth.  This raises my energy into a higher consciousness.  This is what life is really about.

Others played out their part in my lessons.  I asked them to help me, before I was born into this life, with the experiences I needed to heal my soul.  They volunteered to be in my play.

They offered the opportunity for me to learn love, forgiveness, compassion, and gratitude.  Taking responsibility for the karma I created is a major step in being accountable and balanced.  In addition, sending love to those problems or people I harmed in my past needs to be done.

I need to change this low energy of the ego to a higher vibration for me to move into a higher consciousness.  With ascension on the doorstep, forgiving past predicaments becomes essential to raising my energy.

The people who volunteered to play a part in my life did me a favor by providing the happening so my energy can shift to a higher plane.  There can be no negative energy in the Fifth Dimension.  Now I can move on and not be stuck in this old karma, bitterness, or new resentments.

It’s also necessary to stop blaming or judging others for my problems.  This is a common occurrence from the ego.  When I point a finger at someone else, there are several fingers pointing back at me.  The only person I am being inconsiderate of is me, when I do not take responsibility for my life.  What I send out will come back to me.

Clearing out my past negative emotions, actions, and communications, I’m able to return to the oneness with my Creator.  Taking responsibility for my life, and every part that I needed for my soul’s growth, is essential.  Only when I respond in love to all situations that occur instead of reacting in revenge, hatred, or resentment towards others or internalizing guilt and shame, can I become a master of my emotions.

Now I realize that no one else can save me.  I save myself from my ego.  There’s no devil, Satan, or hell.  I have found that I am the cause and effect in my own life.  What I caused comes back to be loved.  When it comes sometimes so painfully, it’s easy to run away physically or emotionally.  I ran from the consequences which led away from truth and love.  I must face reality.

When I attack someone else, the other person will defend himself or herself and retaliate.  When I’m in a difficult situation, sending love will change the dynamics and peace can be restored.  No one can attack love.  There is no threat from love.

It is ego’s lie that I’ll be punished if I reveal my true self to God.    The truth is that in surrendering to God, I have the love of God to protect me from any harm.  It’s the safest place to be.

The scariest thing in life is to be totally available to God’s love.  The ego shut me down from love when I felt danger.  The body closes off all light from God as a way to protect me from harm.  When I was a child in abusive and/or dangerous environments, it protected me.  However, as an adult, the ego continues to keep me from opening to my loving essence.  Until the past is healed, I cannot be open to experience God’s love.

Nanice Ellis – Release the Ego – Transform the World – 1-20-15

There is enough for everyone. Our magnificent earth provides an abundance of food, energy, natural medicine, and building supplies that could easily meet the needs of everyone on this planet. Mother Earth does not charge money for any of these things, but our artificial economic system creates lack, scarcity and a slave civilization.

We are killing our world and ourselves with poison food, toxic water, and polluted air, not to mention depression, anxiety, poverty and a host of other socio-economic issues – all caused or related to the global economic system.

It appears very easy to blame corrupt world leaders, governments, corporations and a host of other problematic sources — but the system continues because we agree to it. Perhaps, our agreement is complacent, but nonetheless, our lack of non-agreement perpetuates the dysfunction.

So the question is, “What is it about each of us that makes us comply and go along – enabling the corrupt and moral-less?”

This article is about healing the inner wound that keeps us individually and collectively hooked into that system, because until that healing occurs the system will not change.

From an awakened state we would never adhere to living conditions that hurt ourselves, our planet or others because it is out of integrity with who we really are. The Real Self cannot be manipulated or hypnotized in any way, but the ego-self can be – easily and effectively.

The ego-self can be controlled in such a way that we are trapped in a prison of our own doing – all the while blaming it on someone or something else, but shifting blame and responsibility only furthers our disempowerment, allowing us to continue down the spiral.

So, how does the ego-self perpetuate the destructive economic system?

The negative aspects of the ego operate through beliefs in separation, competition, scarcity, unworthiness, fear of loss, victimhood and powerlessness, which are all related to survival.

Anyone or anything that activates these survival based beliefs can easily manipulate us – provoking lower vibration beliefs causes fear-based reactions that keep us imprisoned in negative patterns. For example, if you have an active belief that there is not enough to go around, you become very competitive to get your piece of the pie. If you did not believe in scarcity or competition, you would not make the same choices in your life or teach your children to make those choices.

In order to keep the system running you must also believe that your survival is solely dependent upon the system, including your home, food, health, and general well-being. In order to maintain this negative belief, you must completely forget that the source of your good is infinite and abundant – and does not cost any money.

Corporations, world leaders and governments are the Middle Man. They take what is given from the Source of All Good and they cleverly monetize it and control it – so that we look toward them as our false-gods, and we give all our power away.

If you look to the Middle Man for the source of your good and for your survival, you allow the Middle Man to control you and manipulate you. The Middle Man does this by feeding the negative beliefs of our ego-selves, via means of media, education, propaganda and a host of other artificial sources.

For example, the news reinforces separation, competition, scarcity powerlessness and victimhood. Forget about the actual stories and simply notice the beliefs that are being fed – over and over again. In fact, almost everywhere you look you get the same message.

You cannot control an awake society so the Middle Man must do whatever it takes to keep us asleep by activating our already ingrained disempowering beliefs. A fear-based society is an easy society to control.

The wicked well runs deep – because once a belief is accepted by the ego, we seek proof of that belief – and the universe unconditionally brings to us whatever it is that we believe, thereby strengthening disempowering beliefs. But, the opposite is also true.

Here is where our power to transform the world lies.

If we stop allowing these false beliefs to be fed to us by the Middle Man and we consciously choose to release these beliefs, according to universal law, the fabric of reality will change.

In other words, our beliefs create reality so in order to heal our world we must release beliefs that create a negative fear-based reality and claim beliefs that support a reality based on love, kindness and abundance.

Some might say, how can I release negative beliefs when they are true? But what makes them true is your belief in them, and by shifting your beliefs, reality shifts. Your beliefs must change before reality changes.

We free ourselves by releasing disempowering beliefs, and embracing beliefs that are aligned with our highest good. Our ability to create a different reality through our beliefs is infinitely more powerful than any artificial power that operates in the world.

The Middle Man can only manipulate us through the means of fear-based beliefs.

If we do not believe that we are powerless, and we are not afraid to be powerless, the ego-self loses its hold and the Middle Man has nothing to manipulate.

If you do not believe that you can be a victim, you will not give your power and freedom to a government to protect you.
If you do not believe that you are unworthy, you will not need a social system that asks you to prove your worth.
If you do not believe that you have to fit in so that you can survive, you would speak up, stand out, and be true to yourself.
If you do not believe in competition, you will support others in their success.
If you do not believe in separation, we would all come together and heal the cancer in our global body.

The Middle Man needs us to believe that we are powerless, unworthy, needy, potential victims in order to keep us compliant, but every single one of those beliefs is a lie.

The ego is an illusion – therefore any and all ego-based beliefs are illusions by default.

This is your invitation to see how your personal beliefs support the very system that keeps you enslaved.
If you want to know how you can change the world – the answer is to Free Your Ego; to free your ego of the false beliefs that keep you imprisoned.

What can one person do?

Each of us is a piece in the grand puzzle of reality. It is not your job to heal the whole puzzle, but it is your responsibility to heal your own piece of the puzzle. You heal the planet by healing yourself of false beliefs, such as victimhood, powerless, loss and unworthiness. You heal false beliefs by turning your attention away from them and turning your attention to a higher truth.

All healing is a release of false belief.

For most of us, this process of healing is not done overnight. It requires time, intention and commitment, but it has never been so easy to heal or release dis-empowering beliefs, because so many of us are now doing it.

When you release these beliefs, the Middle Man has no rein to control you or hook you into participating in the old dysfunctional paradigm. As you claim your worth and your power to consciously create, you naturally make different choices that move toward love and connection, and as a result, reality begins to change in ways that support the thriving of the whole.

This is what it means to be the change you wish to see in the world and why one person can make a difference. It is time to consciously align your beliefs with the purity and goodness of your heart.

Wisdom With Wes – Ego Absence – 11-6-14

Snapshot_20140731_2Ego absence is much easier said than done, but we’ll want to embrace it if we want to help change anything about this planet.

Even though I (and plenty of others) believe we’re being assisted by various higher-dimensional souls who want to help us spiritually evolve, we’re the ones who are responsible for our individual and collective evolution and it all starts with the decision not to feed the ego any longer.

The more we feed the ego, the more we’ll enable our planet’s broken condition to continue. If we want to change the world, we’ll have to embrace the difficult and monumental task of transcending the ego and its constant wants/desires and open our hearts to the harmony and bliss that result.

Not only we, but the people around is will notice a potent change in our attitude and the way we live our lives in general. With egoless-ness and an open, brimming heart, changing this planet will be a breeze.

Do you choose to feed the ego or the heart today?

Stay aware!
