A balanced ego is a beautiful asset. We hear so much about putting your ego behind you. Stepping on your ego and trying to get rid of your ego. I say no, we need our ego. We where given it for a purpose so let embrace it and put it where it belongs.
The ego has its place for our own personal development. Just like everything else we need a balance. If you have to much ego, then people are turned off. On the other hand, if you have to little, people will not take what you say serous or trust what your saying. We need to speak our truth with confidence in order to be heard.
Ego in the Solar Plexus
Where can we find the ego in our body? To some degree there is ego in every chakra, but the ego is seated in the solar plexus. This is your confidence centre, the “I am”. Your personal power center. If the solar plexus is not functioning properly or is blocked, this will affect your ego. You will have problems speaking your truth. You might feel like you are below everyone else and they are looking down on you. There will be a lack of confidence.
On the other had if your solar plexus has been to stimulated, then you might be dominating everyone and being load. You will be pushing your truth on others because you feel you are fight and there is no other opinion that is better then yours. People will shy away from you and not take what you say serious.
In either case when the solar plexus is out of balance there will be digestion problems. Heart burn, ulcers, liver and pancreas problems, you may also find an imbalance in energy levels being anxious.
The Spiritual Ego
There is another term that has came up called the “spiritual ego”. It is viewed as a negative thing. This usually refers to having a over inflated spiritual view about themselves. This kind of person does not like associating with other people that do not have the same level of knowledge of ability as they do. However, with these types of people usually their abilities tend to weaken as the focus is taken off the real purpose of the gifts.
If you are going to someone for a healing or a reading who are you naturally be drawn? Probably the person that knows they can deliver their gift to you. There is a certain power that one can draw upon when they know they are connected to the divine or universal energy. I have been giving Akashic Record Readings for a number of years now. I can tell you its not easy always to find that balance. But I know in some way the person I am reading is going to grow spiritually. So, I am confident that they will receive a benefit from the reading. On the other hand, I also know that I can not promise the moon because the universe will surly put me back into perspective.
Ego in relationship with the Akashic Records
I want to also look at the ego from the perspective of the Akashic Records. Everything that we take on is for a purpose, it served us for our higher good. At every moment we are doing our very best, because if we could do better we would. And from the realm of the Akashia we are not going to be condemned or loved any less for doing or taking on something that we feel is negative. As humans everything we take on is for a purpose and if we had a better idea we would have done it. So, lets give each other a little slack and not judge each other so harshly.
People that have a over energized ego along with people that have a lack of ego are really both one in the same. They took on that pattern because in some way it protected them. Maybe it was if the where very quiet and did exactly as they where told they did not get beat physically or emotionally. Or if they where outspoken and egotistic then they where put in a position of power and their families where protected. This could have happened in this life time, or maybe it was in a past lifetime and is being manifested in this lifetime. Also, such patterns can be passed down through ancestral lines.
A Balanced Ego
No matter how the ego is developed, it is being used for learning lessons. To help bring us closer to the divine truth that no matter what or who we are. We have the same divine love and light in all of us no matter what, and nothing is going to change that. We need our ego to be strong and steady. Don’t let anyone tell you that step on your ego or hide it. Be mindful of it, balance is the key. Pay attention to how people are responding to you. Life is wonderful when you have your ego in balance to walk it in the light of truth.
Questions to ask in your Akashic Records or you Intuition
- How is ego helping me in this lifetime? Is my ego protecting me from something or someone, or protecting my loved one’s?
- If I am having a problem balancing my ego, is this issue steaming from this life time. Maybe a incident that happen pre-birth or in my childhood. Or is it a past life or maybe a ancestral pattern.
- Why was it a good idea to take on this issue with ego? How did it support me or protected me when I adopted it?
- Can I love myself just the way that I am?
- Is there something that I can do right now to maintain a balanced ego? If it does not feel like you can do their suggestion, ask for them to brake it down a little for you.
