THE EGO MIND

WHAT IS THE EGO MIND? By Sara Rose




Some people might think of the ego as a type of personality. Saying that a person is egotistic, selfish, or think highly of themselves. But, that’s not what I’m talking about when I say "The Ego Mind". The ego has had many names throughout human history. The famous Buda called the ego mind, "the separate self". The Dalai Lama referred to the ego as the "dark side" of ourselves. Eckhart Tolle calls it the "pain body". There are many names for the ego, but they all mean the same thing. The ego mind is the part of you that is constantly thinking. It is the thoughts that will tell you that you’re not good enough, that you are not strong enough, that you will fail at what you’re trying to accomplish. It is the part of the mind that never stops thinking, worrying, judging others and yourself, fearing the future, and dwells on the past. The ego mind is the thoughts that create fear, pain, regret, shame, grief, and many other negative thoughts. The thoughts become emotions, and the emotions become an action, sending out that very type of energy you had created in your own mind. Now that we understand what the ego mind is, let’s get into how we can determine if it is our ego speaking, or not. The Buda called it the separate self because it’s almost as if there are two of you inside your head. I suppose in a sense there is. The ego mind is the one thinking all the time, but who is the one observing those constant thoughts? Well, that is you, the real you. That is the essence of your very own soul, your energy source. The ego is the subconscious mind, made up from years of conditioning. The way you were raised, moments recorded back in school, good or bad. Everything you have seen, heard, and soaked into your mind since you were a baby until adult. The ego is the character you have become in your own play. The labels that you, and everyone around you have put on you. Doctor, lawyer, hairdresser, chef, mother, father, student, farmer, and the list goes on. But these are merely labels, and the ego mind LOVES to play its part in the grand play of life! It loves drama, that’s the ego’s favorite subject. It loves to judge others, and will do it to you as well, just to get a reaction from you. It also loves to stick its nose where it doesn’t belong. Mostly when a situation is none of our business. Because let’s face it, if a person or situation doesn’t benefit your higher self, or the soul, then why engage? Even if the person is talking about you, it’s still none of your business. It doesn’t matter. It only matters what YOU think, what YOU feel inside. But that pesky ego likes to make you THINK that you need to get involved. This is how we can determine if the ego mind is stepping in, because it is all about the drama, whether it’s good or bad drama, it doesn’t care. It’s a nosy little pest that never shuts up! Lol This might sound awful, and sadly we cannot rid the self of ego,  but there are ways to clam the ego mind. As horrible as the ego mind may sound, we do have to live with it. Without it, we wouldn’t have logical everyday thinking skills. However, there are ways to calm the ego, and change your thinking to something a little more positive than the dramatic character. #1. Meditate. Meditation is a great way to get the constant thinking mind to quiet down. When we practice meditation, we are connecting with the higher self (the soul) And when we connect with that energy, the ego has no choice but to move to the side. #2 Affirmations. Repeating positive affirmations. Write them down so you can read them as many times as you need. Make a vision board with all the positive things you love about yourself. Subliminal messages are great because they trick the ego mind in a sense. There are many positive subliminal affirmations you can listen to right on YouTube for free. These work well for some people because subliminal messages bypass the ego thinking mind. They are usually made up of tones, sounds, and frequencies mush like meditation music, with the subliminal messages hidden inside. Your ego thinking mind can’t hear them, but they are still making a huge impact deep inside your mind. Studies have shown how subliminal messages work on humans, going back to the 1940’s when the government conducted an experiment to see how well subliminal would alter the human mind. And it worked! This is where the concept of commercials come into play. What the mind sees, the mind wants. And if there are hidden messages inside the advertisement, then society would be more susceptible, or trainable, causing the average person to run out to buy whatever it was that they had seen on the television. The ego mind plays a huge part in this, wanting to get involved in whatever negativity or mind control that was being played out in simple advertisements. Now, if that worked so well on the television consuming audience, then what do you think positive affirmations could do for someone who is willing to change their own thought process and patterns from years of conditioning? Well, I will tell you! I have personally been using subliminal messages for two years now, and the difference in the way I think on a daily basis is incredible! While I sleep, I listen to the sound of rain, ocean waves, white noise, and many more sounds. Behind these sounds are positive affirmations such as: I clearly hear and understand my intuition. I’m strongly connected to my own intuitive voice. I’m highly intuitive and divinely guided. I draw strength and confidence from my inner knowing… And so on. The ones I just listed are geared to the third eye chakra, but you could choose the messages you personally want to listen to.

#3 A vision board or poster with your favorite affirmations. Here are a few I have hanging on my wall:

7 RULES OF LIFE:

1.      LET IT GO ~ Never ruin a good day by thinking about a bad yesterday.

2.      BE YOURSELF ~ What others think of you is none of your business.

3.      GIVE IT TIME ~ Time heals everything.

4.      DON’T COMPARE ~ You have no idea what their journey is all about.

5.      STOP THINKING TOO MUCH ~ The answers come to you when you least expect it.

6.      IT”S ON YOU ~ No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

7.      SMILE ~ You don’t own all the problems of the world.


I hope some of these ideas will help you calm your ego mind. Changing you thought patters can open up a whole different perspective of the reality around you, and the people in it!

Ego energy  

By Sara Rose


I’m sure everyone has heard the quote: “You get what you give” This is so very true when it comes to our own energy and how we release it into the universe. For instance, if you are in constant ego mind, thinking negative thoughts, speaking negatively, or using negative actions, than it will be negative energy you will receive back. “What goes around, comes around” One who practices high vibrational thoughts (positive) will get that back in return. Low vibrational thoughts and actions are one of the main causes in the negative news we see on the TV from all around the world. Now, imagine what our world would be like if all 8 billion people were thinking positive thoughts! Our universe runs and works on energy, and it will pick up what’s being put out there. If one singular person changed the energy being transmitted into the world, the entire consciousness is raised slightly!
