As we collectively begin our shift into the energy of “spring,” we begin to notice the shift of the “winter” that has expressed through us. As the energy of our beloved planet gains strength and expression, our beloved bodies are often the first to notice. 2011 is a powerful year calling all who are ready to Divine Service in Action!
The ability to witness the difference between Egoic Reality and Soul Consciousness
The ego reality is born out of words that are easily, and often, manipulated… words are championed by the ego to support its agenda. One of the most challenging aspects of ego reality is development of the spiritualized ego. While this is a challenging moment in the evolution of the soul in form, it is also necessary. Every being will walk through their spiritualized ego on the way to full Ascension Awareness, OR they will empower their ego reality through the spiritualized ego creating a sense of grandiosity or “spiritual specialness.” (This expression is the second level of the pyramid of spiritual awakening… Spiritual Activism.)
It is only natural that ALL of the bodies are reacting. Have you noticed the intensity of the actions around you? This includes your physical, spiritual and of course, the emotional bodies. Have mercy on yourself! As you gift yourself with loving compassion, it is the moment to fully embrace and ascend through that beloved sly pirate: the Ego!
This universal aspect of consciousness has grown without boundary over the millennia creating cultures and societies that are defined by their me-focus. Deep within the wellspring of most earth-bound experiences, the “ego-trap” is often discovered. (This is the first “level” on the pyramid of spiritual awakening, Density Consciousness.)
It is here where many begin their journey. In the recognition of growing beyond a “me” focus, the greater mysteries are sought out and explored. Many spiritual traditions offer practices to assist the explorer in dismantling the ego’s grip.
Once this journey begins, the first a-ha moment arises:
Grandiosity, or “spiritual specialness,” is difficult to unravel once it is in place. The spiritualized ego finds plenty of fuel to keep it active through attachments that feed the ego directly. It is a virtual feast for disincarnate beings and trapped energies that are planet bound.
Commonly, this is the journey of one who is truly a great being of light and love! The challenge is to walk through this illusion and discover from within, the grip that is holding the ego in a last dance of power. Humans seem to require some form of ‘fall’ to find true surrender. For one who is in the egoic entrapment of a spiritualized ego, they will flirt with this fall several times before their re-birth and freedom from illusion!
These energies are smart, sly and misunderstood, so how can you know? Here are five “symptoms” that show the spiritualized ego is in control.
1. Denial of Emotional Wounding:
Refusing to acknowledge projected emotional energy. Denial expresses as a gravitation toward lofty ideals, or organizing focus on sources outside of Self. Often times this expresses in the “sense of greater good,” i.e., one religion feeling superior to another.
2. Denial of Personal Responsibility:
Reality is co-created — when we are not getting what we want, an empowered action is to look inward to recognize how our own unmet emotional needs drive our perceptions and judgments. For one in the grip of spiritualized ego, the cause of pain is from “others.” Someone/something external to the Self is misbehaving!
3. Need to Manipulate Opinion or Distort Facts:
The willingness to share incomplete information or to take information out of context to support a personal agenda. Feeling ‘right’ in doing so. Seeking allies by focusing others to base their actions on “headlines” versus thoughtful examination. (For example: mainstream news media focuses on ‘headline’ tidbits that support specific views versus a sincere effort to explore differences in opinion)
4. Preoccupation with Right/Wrong:
The ego loves to blame… the sly pirate does this subtly, pointing to the principles of right or wrong to justify projected energy. The soul does not judge, it allows space for all evolution. Harmony occurs naturally when agendas are relaxed and the organic balance process occurs. The spiritualized ego enjoys control and justifies itself through charisma or seeming alignments with a higher principle.
5. Grandiosity and Pontification:
Preaching — offering unsolicited advice, calling for attention from others, a sense of carrying the ‘final word’ on matters, relying on a ‘higher authority’ and denying the validity of other perspectives. Grandiosity is a natural expression of a spiritualized ego that resides in the 6th or 7th chakras. Often accompanied by a sense of ‘my information is inspired’ (thus reinforcing spiritual specialness).
Sincere spiritual surrender (prayer, meditation, fasting, etc.) often results in mystical communion. How that inspiration is lived, understood and communicated can be interfered with by the ego. The ego believes it must control, provide safety and be acknowledged. How it usurps the authentic soul expression is based upon unfinished emotional healing.
The journey of wholeness is a universal human path that begins as we resolve the energies of separation and fear. To be healthy, all humans are faced with the need to love themselves and evolve; it is a universal part of the human condition and the awakening of Self-Ascension.
The soul’s energy is Joy. Love, deep peace and the recognition that all is well, is the foundation of ascended Love. It takes spiritual tenacity to champion the emergence of the soul into our co-created reality and now is your time. It is a glorious moment on the planet, and your Soul-Consciousness is the greatest guide along the way!
