I decided to write a short blog of my thoughts on the voice of ego/fear vs. the voice of intuition/soul. It will be short because... it’s really very simple.
Ego/fear DOES NOT want you to be happy. Intuition/soul DOES.
It's a pretty clear message. We all need to listen MORE to our intuition/soul, and not to the negative voice of ego/fear which I call the voice of ‘doom’. I know it can be scary sometimes to trust your intuition/soul. Holy moly, what happens if it’s wrong! Well, from experience, I know if you learn to trust your intuition/soul, you can’t go wrong. It will never lead you up the garden path. Your ego will though!
The voice of ego/fear wants you to be unhappy; it thrives on you being depressed, negative, frightened, etc. It doesn’t want your light to shine, it wants to dull your light. Your ego/fear does not have your best interest at heart. Now, don’t get me wrong, we all need our ego, but a healthy balanced one. We also need to hear the voice of fear so it can alert us of impending dangers, or negative situations. However, when both are out of balance - so are we! Whenever I hear the voice of doom telling me I can’t; or I’m not good enough; fears of ‘what if scenario’s, start to freak me out, I tell it to ‘nick off’. I visualise myself pushing the voice down into the ground and stomping on it. It took a few attempts but eventually the loud ego/fear voice got quieter, and it’s now so much easier to hear the gentle, positive voice of my intuition/soul giving me the courage, confidence and strength to believe in myself, and to continue on my soul’s journey even if, at times, it doesn’t seem to make sense to me! Oh, of course the voice of doom won’t quieten without a fight - believe me! It still raises its ugly voice every so often - sometimes daily, and if it catches me at a vulnerable moment I will believe what I am hearing. It can throw me into a spin for a moment or two, but…you can’t keep an optimist negative for too long!
Practise does makes perfect, so learn to control the voice of doom. Just remember - it doesn’t want you to be happy. It doesn’t want your light to shine. Terrible thought isn’t it!
I know life can be challenging at times, and it’s not always easy. BUT it can be easier. Our thoughts really do create our reality so try to focus more on what you desire, and not on what you fear. Living in fear is not living. Choose to listen more to your intuition/soul – the voice of love. You will never be happier. Trust me.:)
I came across a great line about fear the other week which I thought said it all.
“Let me tell you about ego/fear…it’s the most boring thing about you.”
