The Ego has gotten a bad Rap!

By Ulrike Selleck.  In case you missed it:

The ego has gotten a really bad rap lately.

People say it all the time: “He has a big ego, her ego was in it, what an ego…”, meaning what a bad, full of themselves person he or she is.

The ego has been blamed for all the misery and all the suffering.

However, I’m here to tell you:

Guess what: the ego is your friend!

Your ego is the first Divine spark at the basis of you.

Your ego comes straight out of the transcendence.

It’s the reason you exist. It’s the reason Divine manifested in the first place to play in all Its many forms!

Your ego is the first impulse at the finest feeling level. Finer than the intellect, the mind, the body and the senses.

It’s like the blueprint for you and your life.

When Divine, God, you, – all the same -, designed who you want to be in this life, that is called the ego.

It’s you, it’s your individuality. It’s what makes you unique.

There’s nothing wrong with you. There’s nothing wrong with the ego.

Yes, in the past when we were less enlightened, we had experiences that made us fearful or stressed, angry, happy or sad, arrogant, or insecure.

Those responses to events or actions made us have feelings and reactions. If strong enough, those got recorded and stored in our bodies as tightness and stress.

All these impressions have gone into our energetic makeup. Then they were translated into our body.

Those imprints, called stress, are no longer serving you. They are no longer in your Highest good.

They dissolve naturally over time, or you can meditate to give your body deep rest, which will dissolve them. In addition there are actions you can take that result in good karma, make you happy, give you energy, and help speed you along.

So you want to welcome your ego! You want to be your pure ego, pure Divine ego, pure individuality.

Then Divine shines through you, in the most immediate way.

Next time you hear someone refer to stress as ego, you know now: it’s the stresses, the old imprints that make people react in a stressed way. It’s those we want to dissolve. Not your ego!

Your ego is the first manifestation of Divine in human form.

Align with that, and enjoy your life. Follow that, and you have your mission, your blueprint, and your straightest way from and to Divine.

Isn’t it nice? Turns out, your ego is really your friend!
