Oh yes ego – you would love it if I never changed, never ventured out into “scary” new territory, and just played it safe till I died.
But I’m not wired that way. Not even close.
My life has been one of jumping into new situations and countries and levels of consciousness.
Very recently I signed up for and began studying Soul Realignment Level 3. My teacher Andrrea Hess calls it the super geeky ninja level Akashic Record reading level!
It’s been 4 years since I completed Soul Realignment Level 2, mind you, I did complete the Soul Manifesting Blueprint and Reading the Future in the Akashic Records programs since then too…
But back to the main point – it’s been 4 years since I did Level 2! I never felt like I even wanted to do Level 3 at all ever, lol.
And then…. I guess I finally reached the point where I yearned for more in depth knowledge. I wanted to go deeper. How does the Soul Blueprint exactly work? What other Master Guides are available to me? What deeper levels of Soul work can I offer my clients?
The curiosity and desire was there!
This is a key important piece – if you have the desire and you can tell it comes from a Soul inspired place, that is gold. That means you’re meant for it.
However, when I started working through the Level 3 lessons, that’s when my ego started freaking the ef out.
This happened when I did Level 1 and when I did Level 2, so now I’m onto it. And even though these ego tantrums do distract me and make it hard to push on, just the knowing helps a lot.
Piece 1 is the enthusiastic desire for the change or learning, then piece 2 is the ego freaking out.
So my questions for you are:
- Do you currently know or can you identify your ego’s “defense” / distraction tactics?
- What can you do to ease your ego through the transition so you can keep moving forward?
For me, my ego goes into hyper skeptic and critic mode. It finds a way to criticize everything about the new content I’m learning and then slaps on a thick layer of doubt about its validity.
My ego would love it if I threw all the lessons in the trash and never looked at them again.
A brilliant life coach I worked with years ago taught me that a way to deal with ego tantrums is to placate it. Tell your ego that it will be ok. You’re just going to try this out and see what happens.
This is piece 3 on the path of growth into new territory – getting your ego on board for the ride.
There’s no need to get healing work done for blocks, force your way forward, or spin off into trying to fix or deal with the fears.
Gentleness is the best tactic.
Tell your ego that you’ve done this before. You’ve made leaps in learning and big changes and yes they were new and scary but now they’re normal. Just like this present newness will in turn become normal too.
Cheers to big growth!
