This morning was week 2 of my renewed coaching sessions with Jacque Alderete! It was another wonderful session again, and I focused on being present and connecting to spirit and my spiritual purpose.
What’s becoming pretty clear to me is that most of who “I am” has been “ego.” Just today I heard myself thinking: “Oh! There’s the ego again! . . . There again! . . . Again!” The ego is all about identification, too. Once you “identify” it, this means separating it — “you” — from other things. So, the ego survives and thrives by separation, disconnection, and competition.
However, there is certainly a value to ego. If we are here to learn and grow in this schoolroom of Earth, it’s helpful to be able to measure. As a part of a collective, details can become hazy. Once we have some separation, we are better able to measure, to analyze, to set goals and dreams and to improve ourselves. We just must watch that we don’t let the ego get out of control . . . and it can happen quite easily!
Measurement can lead down the path of judgement. Suddenly we are questioning if we are ok, if we are “enough.” We turn this on others as well, deciding if they “measure up.” The truth is that all of creation can be seen as a gift. Every moment is an opportunity for learning. Every creation is “enough.”
Today I had a breakthrough with Jacque in finding my self beyond the ego. This “self” is deeply rooted in love, is the image of my chest opening up and a glowing red haze-like energy flowing out and loving on all who will receive it. It’s powerful and beautiful — and after today — not so scary. 🙂
Much love, many blessings. ❤
