Get to Know Your Ego and Set Yourself Free
Self-awareness is the key to freedom in life.
The ego is the voice inside your head that makes you question yourself and your abilities every time you step into or towards something new or big in your life.
Something that would improve your life somehow, that’s when it immediately steps in and starts to bombard you with all kinds of lies about how you can’t or shouldn’t do something.
It’s an expert at this and will do it in such a way that you don’t even know what’s happening.
You just somehow always manage to talk yourself out of things, not knowing that it’s actually not even you who are doing it.
It’s the ego and it goes something like this:
You get a nudge to do something and you feel excitement mixed with a little bit of fear (the positive kind) where you go ‘eek! I’m really gonna do this!’ but then your ego comes in and says ‘no, you ain’t doin’ any such thing! Sit you ass down!’ and then you go ‘ok’.
And then of course nothing else happens and your ego is satisfied again, as it always is in the status quo.
The result is then that you continue to stay on the same old spot that you’ve been on for ages.
IF you listen to the voice of the ego that is!
You can choose to not listen to it, and this is where self-awareness comes in.
You need to know that the voice inside your head is not the real you.
The real you always wants to take you higher, while the ego always wants things to stay as they are.
There’s of course a lot more to the ego than what I can describe in this short post!
Below is a link to some of my articles and other resources about it.
When you begin to see it for what it is you’ll be able to break free from it.
One way to do this is to start paying very close attention to the different voices in your head and what they are saying to you, especially every time you want to do something new or big.
Detect it within yourself (how it’s speaking to you), get to know it (see how it operates in your life), and then finally see through it (question everything it says) and this will help you set the inner hostage (your soul) free.
