Self-awareness will save you from having the ego running your life
There is a voice in most people’s heads that makes them feel they are not enough.
The not-enoughness is something nearly everybody has and that’s the voice of the ego which is preventing people from really living their life fully.
It’s like a constant victim mentality-voice that makes you believe that life is happening to you, and it goes so deep that we’re not even aware of it until we have cultivated enough self-awareness.
We developed the ego voice when we were small kids by what our parents (and other adults in our life) told us about life (=their limiting beliefs), society and its rules (which in most cases is the complete opposite of what living in the flow of Life is), so no wonder the world looks like it does.
I mean, I only follow the good stuff (I haven’t watched the news for over a decade or so), but you know what I mean. We all know that the world is not what it could be.
There’s a voice in most people’s head that is convincing them that life is about making money and surviving. We learn this from early age, but in reality it’s not true.
In Reality we’re here to thrive!
Yes, imagine that. We are meant to live in abundance while sharing our gifts and talents with the world.
That’s our real purpose in life, and we all have something to give that no other person can give in the way that we can (so there is no competition either).
But we were conditioned as children to believe that that’s not true and that the inner voice of intuition that tells us what we really want to do with our lives should be ignored.
In Reality it’s the ego voice that is telling us all the lies and is preventing us from living our authentic life and from being our true self fully.
The ego voice also always makes you live with a sense of lack, and while it may not always be in the foreground, it’s always in the background, silently running its program in your mind and makes you feel a sense of dissatisfaction or struggle (to get “over there” where you can finally become happy and free.)
It takes us away from the present moment as it makes us feel that we’re not complete, or that we don’t have enough (whatever it may be), but it’s in the present moment that life really is.
That person who feels all those things and takes you away from the Now (where peace always is) is not you, it’s not the real you.
It’s the conditioned self, the small, limited self that has been built up from all the voices you’ve heard throughout your life from the world, telling you who you are and what life is about.
Don’t believe the limiting voices in your head!
The voices that tells you (now inside your head) whenever you want to do something that it’s not for you.
It starts to talk to you saying things like “don’t be silly”, “you’re crazy, you can’t do that” etc. (and all kinds of other versions of “who do you think you are”).
In other words; words and sentences that most of us have heard in our lives, and now that voice is in your head too, talking non-stop to you about how you can’t do things.
Most people believe that voice so they don’t do the things they want to do (which are things that Life wants to do through you, that you’re actually meant to do), so they just submissively (and unconsciously) agree with ego voice and go back to living life through their small self instead.
The ego voice always makes people feel they’re not good enough as I mentioned before (and this can go very deep, so it’s mostly unconscious), it’s what most people struggle with (both consciously and unconsciously), and it also makes people afraid of being judged or criticized.
Even the most seemingly ‘confident’ person can actually come from a place of fear, such as bullies for example. Bullies are all coming from fear, which is the ego itself.
The ego voice is constantly telling you to not take any risks (or chances) and that you should be really careful and keep within the boundaries of the known, but that voice is just the voice of a crazy society that has nothing to do with who you really are!
It’s just a programming, and you can change that, you can see through it and free yourself from it.
The ego voice does not reflect even the slightest of what you can and can’t do, should or shouldn’t do.
That’s all coming from a place of past conditioning that has lead to a sense of inferiority and insecurity, which is all about believing in the voice of the ego in your head and thinking it actually is you.
But there’s another kind of voice there too if you really listen closely.
It’s a guidance that can’t get through for as long as you listen to the other voices that are loud and seemingly more powerful.
There’s a still, small voice there too, and That voice is your real voice, the true voice that we are meant to listen to and live through.
It’s the voice that guides you to do something that would bring you joy, freedom, peace and happiness and that always wants the best for you.
We are meant to follow our highest calling, the calling of the heart, our intuition.
It would never in a million years tell you that you suck, that you can’t do something or that you’re not good enough!
The voice that tells you these things is the crazy voice!
And that’s the voice that the majority of the world lives by.
Can you imagine what would happen if we all loved ourselves in the same way that Life/Universe/Divine/God (whatever word you use) loves us/itself?
Life always wants us to expand, to go higher in life, it never wants you to shrink, make you more stressed and unhappy or feel that you can’t do something.
The voice of the ego is not your real voice, it is not you.
It’s the voice of society, and society exist on a mediocre level and the Real You is anything but mediocre!
How the world is presenting itself to you and what you have learned about how life works and what you can do, is a lie, it’s an illusion.
And society wants you to stay small, but it’s only for as long as you identify with the voices in your head that makes you feel ‘less than’ that you’re bound to live a restricted, unfulfilling life.
When you dare to tune into what your gut and intuition is telling you to do instead, and follow through on the guidance, you will break free into a whole other dimension of life that you didn’t even know existed.
So my invitation to you today is that if you in any way (any way!) feel dissatisfied or unfulfilled in your life, that you start identifying the different voices in your head that are preventing you from being who you really are and living the life you’re really meant to live.

Or, you can always book a private session with me and I’ll help you see where the ego is preventing you from living full out.
That’s one of my specialties and I can detect it pretty much right away. 😊
When you have seen through the illusion of your own ego, you know and see everybody’s ego, and I know it both in and out and all the ways it operates in people’s minds and in the collective consciousness.
