What is the ego you may ask? The ego is your inner judgemental mean girl, your souls worst enemy and what we need to learn is that we are not our ‘’ego’’. You are not the car you drive, the job you have, the material items you own, the income you earn – these things do not define who you are.
Do you find yourself saying…
Ill be happy once I have that job
Ill be happy once I lose weight
Ill be happy once I have that expensive bag or shoes
Ill be happy once I go on that holiday
Ill be happy once I have ….
Do you find yourself…
Thinking negative thoughts about yourself and others
Judging people that you really don’t know
Maybe you compare yourself to others and wonder why you don’t have what they have?
You need to stop right now…take a deep breath…and drop that shitty ego. Listening to your ego is you not living your true authentic self. You are your soul, your inner spirit. You are the things that make you happy, the things that set your soul on fire. You need to start living your truth, your true divine authentic self. All the ego does is create unwanted negative energy. Sometimes it can consume you and run your life. When you catch yourself with negative thoughts or talk just stop right away and take a big deep slow breath and remember that it’s just your ‘’ego’’ talking and put that mean girl away.
‘’Is that you, or your ego?''
So how does one overcome their ego? Through positive self talk, when you come from a place of love rather than a place of fear or judgement, by quoting daily affirmations, by doing things that ignite a spark in your life, things that feed your soul and leave you feeling completely blissed out and high on life! Meditating daily is extremely important to me and will change your life (My next post will be about meditation) this is something that you should definitely incorporate into your routine, it grounds you, creates inner peace, and of course quiets the ego.
Make decisions by using your intuition and listen to your heart, become more in tune with your body, mind and spirit and you will know what you actually want and desire rather than what your ‘’ego’’ wants.
Practice gratitude daily…this one is so important - be grateful for the things you already have and focus on what’s going well for you. I might write a list down on a piece of paper or on my phone and just say to myself the things that I’m grateful for. It can even be the simplest things like ‘’today the sun is shining’’ or ‘’I went on a walk today that made me feel so good’’. Start shifting your focus away from what the ego wants and appreciate what you already have or what you can already do that makes happy.
