Okay.. onto Week Two!

Let's do a very quick review of Ego and Spirit. Both dwell within all of us. Spirit is our real self. It is the part of us which is love, compassion, gratitude, happiness, kindness...all the good stuff!! Ego is not our true self.. but is often the loudest, most consistent "voice" in our minds. Ego fuels anger, frustration, jealousy, envy, grudge holding, unworthiness, low self-esteem... it's the "voice" in our head that tells us that we are not enough, that harshly judges those around us. It is the part that wants to be right at any cost, it is the part which needs to be better than others.. or the part that ridicules us for our weight, appearance, job, lack of job.. I mean.. Ego is a nasty little critter.

I want you to NAME that voice. I know this sounds just a bit odd.. but we are working to separate Ego and Spirit. HAVE FUN HERE.. VISUALIZE AND IMAGINE!
This week.. after it's named, I want you to address it by name.. and have it STOP speaking to you in that way.

I also want you to create a list of at least FIVE positive affirmations... I am statements are the most powerful.. and then when you stop the Ego, recite your affirmations.

So true I am glad that you pointed out the difference between Ego and Spirit! Thankfully my Ego has been quieted more and more as the years pass, as I have become more humble. But I definitely have a name for mine!

My Ego's name is Eve.

*I am beautiful inside and out!
*I am strong in spirit and true to those I love!
*I am healthy and working on getting even healthier!
*I am loving and passionate about life and the people/things I care about!
*I am eternally humble and thankful for all that life has given me, a wonderful husband, a crazy family, a good job, the ability to learn and heal from mistakes, and more!

Ugh, 4th time trying to post this...

I have so much trouble naming anything, let alone a part of myself. I will have to think on that one for a bit.

* I am strong and confident
* I am open and receptive
* I am loving and compassionate
* I am positive and optimistic
* I am motivated and encouraged

By the way, I love your new siggy!

Is it inappropriate to have sort of a bad name for one's ego? I refer to mine as a "female dog"

Well. You will eventually want to have a good relationship with your ego. Might be harder if you call it that. And, words have power... Do you really want to call a part if yourself an unflattering name? Believe me, I understand the desire to call it that....

But I do not see that word in such a negative light. Words only have the power you give them. And I do not see my ego as part of me, as the things it says are things other people have told me that I can't do or can't be or how ugly I am or worthless or unloveable. I am none of those things so my ego is nothing more to me than a database of the opinions of others.

Of course you can do as you like but words do carry vibrational energy and many say that the subconscious absorbs the words we say as a reflection of self no matter whom they are directed toward. ��

I named the voice BITTER!

I am worthy of praise.
I am worthy of time.
I am worthy of love.
I am worth the truth.
I am worthy of a second look.
