Death of the Ego in Jungian terms, really just means the loss of how we subjectively perceive ourselves to be. A loss of identity of sorts but not a loss of who we are. To explain further, it’s a loss of those constructs we tend to use to define who we are when in fact we are really so much more than what we think. According to transpersonal psychology, the ego is a part of us that makes us unique, gives us our personality, our issues, our likes and dislikes, a way of interpreting our experiences through maybe not the clearest of lenses.
For instance, before my awakening I had moved around a lot in the U.S. for my graduate training and for work. This meant having to introduce myself more times than I’d have liked. If someone asked me then to describe myself I would have said something like “Hi, I’m Sameena, I’m from Canada, I’m a psychologist, an athlete, I like music and sports and cooking and blah blah blah.” I’m already asleep.
Not that these things aren’t important, and they are all true to a degree, but there is so much more to me than these constructs. I found this out while I was sick, while I experienced the excruciating Dark Night (years) of the soul, and many Ego Deaths all at once. I didn’t do it on purpose, not consciously anyway. By being so physically ill for years I realized I was no longer a psychologist as I was too sick to work, I was no longer an athlete because my body barely moved, and I definitely was not a cook because I was too tired to create something in the kitchen. I wasn’t a daughter because I felt more like a burden, and I wasn’t a girlfriend as I left my long-term relationship. I wasn’t a friend because I let most of my old friendships go. OK, I was still a big music connoisseur but who isn’t? Actually I know one lady who doesn’t like music but needless to say we aren’t friends.
Anyway, my point is that when we experience an Ego Death (or many), we can use this opportunity to find out who we truly are. Who are you without the labels, without the shoulds, without the programming and conditioning since childhood?
I found out that I am a sensitive and intuitive being and although sometimes I don’t want to be, it is a part of who I am. I learned that I have so much love inside of me that any moment I feel like I could burst into a million hearts. I learned that I am way smarter than I originally thought, because I now understand that we are all connected. I learned about the Universal Laws and the Higher Perspective. Three graduate degrees and that was never in the curriculum.
I learned that I am very forgiving, and have the capacity to love unconditionally. I learned to face my shadows and accept them as parts of me instead of denying them and hiding behind ego constructs. I learned that my outer world reflects my inner world and that this is constantly changing because I am constantly working on myself and shifting.
I learned that people are mirrors of what needs to be healed, and what has already been healed. I learned that others tend to drain my energy and I’m not going to socialize if I don’t want to. I learned that I am not an athlete, but I love playing sports. I pop into the kitchen and can whip something up, but I’m not a cook.
Ego Death is a beautiful thing. It allows us to explore who we really are instead of fitting into little boxes. We get the opportunity to reconnect with our own soul. We explore our likes and dislikes, our uniqueness, but we don’t attach to labels as our identity.
Death of the Ego gives us a more truthful perspective about ourselves and about others. I now understand the difference when I am operating from Ego versus operating from the Heart, and can sense this in others as well, while understanding that our Ego never really dies while we are alive. We just aren’t what we thought we were, and when we realize this we change our perspective on everything. We free ourselves from chains we’ve placed or allowed others to place on us, and life is much more beautiful when we live from a place of authenticity.

TheEgo is the central figure of our personal history, based upon the past and looking into the future. It is a dissatisfied, possessive small ego that often makes our life a misery. It is for certain that this small ego–or, more precisely, what we believe is our Self, our Ego–coiled up tightly in the back of our mind, is responsible for a tremendous amount of senseless and unnecessary suffering and destruction in the history of mankind.
Here are 24 Keys to transcend the Ego
Key 1.The Ego is not bad, it is simply unconscious.
Key 2. The Ego is responsible for the integrity of the personality, for our inner well-being.
Key 3. The Ego only pursues its own dreams and ambitions, and so it very often embitters our life.
Key 3. The components of the Ego are thoughts, emotions, memories (with which the person identifies as “my story”), fixed unconscious roles and collective identifications (nationality, religion, etc.). Most people completely identify with these components of the Ego, and for them no self “outside” of this exists.
Key 4. The identification of the Ego with things (object, the person’s own body, way of thinking) creates the link of the individual to various things. The Ego experiences his/her existence through the possession of various objects.
Key 5. The satisfaction provided by the sense of possession is, short, so the Ego usually carries on the pursuit for new objects. There is a powerful motivation behind this activity of the Ego, a psychological demand to obtain more, the unconscious sense of “not yet enough,” and this feeling surfaces in a want for more.
Key 6. The content of the Ego will then be the thing with which the individual identified him/herself (my house, my car, my child, my intelligence, my opinion, etc.). The contents of the Ego (with which the individual identifies) are shaped by the environment and upbringing of the person, that is, the culture in which the person becomes an adult.
Key 7. The thoughts such as “it’s mine,” “I want it,” “I need it,” “it is not enough,” belong to the structure of the Ego. The content of the Ego changes with time; it is replaced with new contents. No content is, however, able to lastingly satisfy the Ego as long as the structure of the Ego remains in its place.
Key 8. The Ego keeps looking for something different, something that promises a greater satisfaction, making the sense of self of the individual more complete.
Key 9. The Ego wants to possess more and more, wants to become more and more powerful. More knowledge, more faith, more material wealth. The Ego wants to devour more and wants to do it more anxiously. That is how the Ego becomes a tyrant and dominates our life to an increasing extent.
Key 10. The Ego is shaped by the past, determining its structure and contents. The structure of the Ego is an unconscious factor, which forces the individual to reinforce his/her identity by joining an external object.
Key 11. The Ego is but a mental production, a system of beliefs.
Key 12. The Ego strives to protect, sustain and expand itself. The Ego functions in survival mode. The statement that the Ego functions in a survival mode means that it continually struggles to remain “psychologically alive,” so it regards other Egos as rivals or even enemies.
Key 13. One of the most important strategies of the Ego to sustain and reinforce itself is the experience of “I am right.” This is the identification of an idea, position, evaluation. Nothing gives the Ego more power than experiencing that “I am right.” It is the desire of the Ego to be right, and thus overcome the other, ensuring its own superiority.
Key 14. One of the favorite self-reinforcing strategies of the Ego is complaining. Complaining implies the sense that “I am right.” When another Ego refuses to accept that “I am right,” it is an offense to the complaining Ego, which. in turn, further reinforces its self-awareness.
Key 15. The Ego intends to elevate the forms (including its own form) to eternity, which is impossible. This intention of the Ego will be the source of all sufferings, because its world of forms and shapes shall collapse like a sandcastle after a while, until death snatches away the last of the forms: its body from it.
Key 16. Our entire culture and civilization rest upon the selfish and possessive Ego and, as the Ego created the institutions of society, these institutions are also the expressions of the Ego.
Key 17. In most people identifies with that socially conditioned Ego. At a number of people this identification is so powerful that they are unaware that their life is governed by a socially conditioned Mind.
Key 18. The Ego must fall, as it is against the evolutionary development of the Consciousness.
Key 19. If an individual is able to notice and observe the functions of the Ego, he or she will be able to transcend it.
Key 20. We must reach beyond our Ego-dominated mind programs, because if we fail to do that, we will eventually destroy ourselves and a large part of the world.
Key 21. One of the ways of transcending the Ego is not reacting wholeheartedly to the ever-changing caleidoscope of thoughts and emotions, but concentrating on the alert Consciousness in the background instead.
Key 22. The Ego calls itself real and the only existing ”Self,” though it is nothing more than a conceptual product, the continually changing content of the space of Consciousness
Key 23. In the space of Consciousness, in the state of pure consciousness the person recognizes and clearly experiences that Ego is a fraud.
Key 24. The Truth is that we are the embodiment of Life, we are born into this world as a result of a miracle, and later we are lost amidst the multitude of teachings and dogmas.
Posted by newsununity, 10/28/2016 The ego has many voices but not one of them is founded in True Love and Compassion. That is not to say that the ego is out to ‘get you’ or deliberately misguide you. The ego tries its best to keep you safe and protected within the walls of human consciousness […]
Your ego shall be transformed into a new state of being. Your ego is not going to disappear, it shall simply take a backseat to your thought processes, and you shall begin to see the world through a different set of eyes.
You shall begin to feel the changes in those around you, you shall notice that their frequency has indeed changed. For as their ego dominance is equalized and comforted with the new energies of the coming times, they shall relinquish the power of their egos, and allow their higher selves to take hold of that which they are.
And so, your vehicles shall then be operated from the view stand point of your higher selves rather than ego. From this vantage point, you shall all be able to view the lives that you have created, evaluate the direction in which you are moving, and adjust your frequency thereby aligning you with a new path of your choosing.
You shall be able to review your lives without attachment to the material, without attachment to that which you are. For you shall temporality forget that which you believe you are, and be allowed to view your lives as if you were viewing it from the heavenly abodes of your higher selves. As if you were experiencing what is called in your known world as the “near death experience” without being in any pain nor suffering. For the meditative state into which you all shall enter, a hibernation state if you will, shall allow your physical human mind to operate with a different set of accords, thereby literally lifting your soul out of your body for recognition and rectification purposes of your being.
For you shall be greeted by your guides, and they shall assist you in viewing your life and making various adjustments to the past that you have experienced. And when this moment shall occur you shall be allowed and assisted in etherically returning to the points of the pain and releasing the old patterns of thinking. This shall and will occur spontaneously, randomly as you become aware of your guides, as you become aware of the space around you, as you truly allow this connection to occur.
And when such connection occurs and you travel back in time to the aspects of yourself whom you have indeed created for your selves, these aspects shall then be allowed to be let go of. And as such, after saying your goodbyes, your egos shall then be put into a state of hibernation, whereby they shall only be activated upon the approval of your higher selves. For the new age that you are have all moved into shall not allow the ego too be in the driving seat and shall monitor your thoughts and actions carefully adjusting your energy flow as you go about your day.
You shall begin noticing various mood swings, in your psyche, whereby you will be prompted to replace “the thoughts of the past with the thoughts to the NOW. You shall find yourselves being a bit confused with the feelings and information you shall receive.
Nevertheless it is all a process of integrating the new foundation of newly formed principles. For all that we are discussing with you has indeed been ordained by your higher selves, and as such your vessels are simply being aligned with that which has already occurred. For your higher selves have indeed requested these changes and hence you are experiencing and shall experience them as we speak.
Know that this is a natural sate of progression from the fully material and solid world into a more liquid and fluent world of your being. For you shall begin noticing physical changes within your bodies, as your structure becomes more liquid and etheric, as you move further still through the corridor of ascension.
For the ascension shall continue to be in effect and shall finally bring you to the point of not return. The point from which you shall not be able to return to the solidity of the world you once knew. Hence many of you shall experience the loss and emptiness as you say your goodbyes to the three dimensional experience, once and for all.
All of this shall be welcomed by your vehicles in stages, as it is simply not possible at this moment in time to completely transform your vehicles into a new state of being overnight.
And so as you shall continue to operate on both frequencies, constantly being moved from one end of the spectrum to another. Let it be known that you shall all bare witness to the internal and external changes, and let it be known that you have been prepared very well to withstand the necessary conditions and changes that shall occur within and without.
For all is going according to the divine blueprint that has indeed been preordained and set forth by all those who are reading these messages. And so, we ask that you pay careful attention to the urges of your vehicles, pay careful attention to the psyche of your being. Pay careful attention to the guidance that you are receiving. For your lives shall never be the same. For your path shall not be the same, for your duties to act as beacons of light shall increase ever so much. For you shall indeed be drawn to a new set of realities, thinking patterns, and ways of being.
Know that we are standing by you ready to assist you in all that you are. Know that we love an you unconditionally. Know that we are walking with you hand in hand, and foot in foot. Know that you can call upon us whenever you wish. Know that it is so. For it is.
That is all that we have for you now. We love you. We are with you. Goodbye for now.
Personal Note: Every 10,700 years or so, our solar system passes through at 2100 year-wide belt of highly charged ion particles know as the photon belt. This belt is the “Holy Spirit” of GOD force of the universe stepped down from the Center of Creation.
Soul’s passage through this belt happens twice during an approximate 26,000 year cycle – the time that it takes to go around its greater sun (Alcyon in the Pleaides). This huge vertical and doughnut-shaped belt presently appears from earth to slice through the astrological ages of Leo & Aquarius. Since we are moving inot the Age of Aquarius, we are also moving into the photon belt.
What I am being told is that our solar system has already entered this belt, and on 22nd of September our planet, our actual planet is going to start moving into this belt. Which is going to affect us greatly. As Christ Consciousness is really going to start playing out in this field, in our world, as has been predicted many eons ago. And once again as we’re being told through the channelings, through the channeling that you have just read and many other channelings worldwide, what is happening is this energy will transform the planet and all life on it, into higher dimension of vibratory states.
So, we’re given a great opportunity to cleanse our palate if you will, to let go of everything that no longer serves us, so that when we do enter into this photon belt, where we are going to stay for many years, for at least 2,000 years, so that we can finally enjoy this moment in time. Of course everything is not going to change overnight, as we are being told constantly over and over again, it’s going to take time.
And right now we are living in the most exciting times, as we’re literally being changed from the solid state of our three dimensional existence into a more liquid state and crystalline state of being. Once again this is a great time to let go of everything and to truly connect with your divine self. I hope that you will take this opportunity. I hope that you will enjoy this transition.
As turbulent as it may be, it’s very important to remember that we are all being supported grately. You’re being supported by your guides, usually every person on earth has at least one guide attached to them, who is always there with you, and many times you will have other guide that are coming in to support you in specific moments throughout your life, not to mention your spirit guides, the ascended master, arch angels, our galactic family that are constantly watching over us, and most importantly your higher self. So listen to your intuition. Clean everything out and welcome this new energy. Stay grounded. Stay in the Now. I love you!
