An important part of connecting to and strengthening your intuition is learning to differentiate between your fear-driven Ego and love-inspired Soul.
This is also an essential part of developing your discernment – your ability to know what is your truth, separate and beyond the many layers of influence constantly pushing against you.
Your Ego and Soul
Your Ego is formed around your child-self who carries many limiting beliefs and stories, and often tries to keep you safe by having you play small and not take risks.
Your Soul is the eternal part of you that knows, unquestioningly, that you are loved and safe and here to play the big game of life.
When you have travelled on the self-awareness journey for a little while, and come to understand your child-self through compassion and kindness, you will be able to integrate and heal all aspect of yourself.
The more integrated you are, the less divide between your Ego and Soul, and the more centred and empowered you are as a whole being.
Use the table below as a starting point to review with the messages you are receiving, and sense if they are coming from your Ego or Soul… but remember that the nuances of your personal experience is where your truth lives, so pay attention to how YOUR feel and create a more specific guideline for yourself based on that.
|asks you to give your power to others||asks you to stand in your own power|
|your social mask||your true essence, connected to Source|
|needs the approval of others to feel worthy||doesn’t take others’ opinions personally|
|uses labels to separate you from others||recognises the divinity in others, the connections between all|
|trapped in time, concerned about the past or future; regret, shame, anxiety, fear||always IN THE PRESENT, in the NOW|
|pushes, has hyped-energy, often running in fight/flight/freeze mode||doesn’t rush you, gently guides you with opportunities, gut-feelings|
