I can be a tad bit emotional at times.
My husband would definetly agree with this. I get that little voice in my head saying things aren’t good enough or that a situation isn’t going to work out the way I want it to. That little voice is my ego.
Your ego is any and all emotions that don’t serve you. I know some people who name their ego. He’s the dark voice that keeps them up at night telling them they aren’t deserving of the love and affection that they most definetly are.
I also know some people who would think they’re too good for certain situations. That ego is just as bad. The ego that looks down on people and acts like it’s better than certain situations.
“The ego is not master in its own house.” –Sigmund Freud
Can you remember a time when you were a child that you didn’t have those thoughts? It doesn’t matter how young you were. I’m fairly certain that we all can think back and be a little envious of our past selves innocence.
I used to be called wishy-washy. I bounce from task to task, sometimes stopping what I’m doing completely to focus on something else. Society has taught us that this is a bad thing. It’s that childlike energy that fuels your soul and not your ego.
Who cares what other people think? There’s no judgement on my part whatsoever. As I clearly stated above, I still struggle with that. Here’s the thing, everyone struggles with things relatively. That f-up that you focused on for a week was probably forgotten by everyone else shortly after. It was either forgotten or someone had an f-up of their own that they were focusing on.
The most important thing to remember is that they are not living your life. You are. You are the only person that you need to make happy and you need to let go of anything and anyone that does not serve you! Your relationship with yourself is your spiritual fuel.
“To end the misery that has afflicted the human condition for thousands of years, you have to start with yourself and take responsibility for your inner state at any given moment.” –Eckhart Tolle
How many times have you heard think before you speak? I know I’ve heard it more times than I can count! Applying it to myself was something that I didn’t consider until just recently! Think of what your saying to yourself.
It can be very physically draining to make this change at first. Changing the way you think is a very daunting task. You will realize that the more you do it the easier it becomes and the more energized your soul is.
“Becoming “awake” involves seeing our confusion more clearly.”
― Chögyam Trungpa,
awakening your soul
Your ego doesn’t want your soul to be awake. Your ego thinks that’s silly or you’re not good enough for that. There’s a huge sense of insecurity with going with the flow. Where’s the stability!
The stability is you. You are your own constant. Trust that you will always be there for yourself no matter what happens. Always work towards a goal and even if plans change or things happen you can rely on yourself especially if you let go of your ego! It doesn’t serve you!
My name is Ashley Rose (a.Rose). I grew up in a small town in Washington with a love for people, nature, animals and a passion for art. I have a strong connection to my spiritual side, but not any religion in particular. I also have a connection to nature (being a Taurus and an Earth sign that totally makes sense!) and truly believe getting lost in the woods can clear my mind better than anything else. ARosemanifested.com is really a testament to the power of positivity, how it can manifest things in your life, and how it has manifested in my life in particular.
