This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Donna.
David, I have decided that my first sign of success is the ability to manifest the funds needed to see you at a live event. You have been so motivational. Anyway, I do understand the subconscious and the conscious mind and the part they play. I also understand The Law of Attraction and spiritual nature. However, I struggle with the part the EGO plays and where it fits in with the big picture. HELP!
Hi Donna and thanks for your question.
Your ego’s sole job is to keep you exactly where you are. Your ego perceives any growth or change as a threat to your survival, and it will immediately begin to bring up fears to control your decision making.
Let me give you an example, and let’s use your sentence about a manifesting the funds needed to see me at a live event.
The truth states that if you have a desire, the way to fulfill that desire is already present. Therefore, if you feel a deep desire to attend a live event, that desire is coming from Spirit. It’s a message being sent to you to help foster your growth and keep you on the path to increased consciousness.
The next thing that happens is your ego recognizes this desire as a threat, and immediately gives you many reasons why you shouldn’t go to the event. Reasons like:
• You don’t have enough money;
• It’s not the right time;
• You don’t want to travel, etc.
Because your ego is strong, you believe these excuses, and you stifle your own growth. You believe the lies your ego is telling you.
So let’s go back to the truth.
I’m sure you’ve heard me teach about manifestation. But let me just remind you that manifestation simply means “becoming aware of what already exists”.
And you also know the steps in manifestation.
Step 1 is MAKE A DECISION.
Until you make a “committed”, “accept-no-other-option” DECISION, nothing will happen or change for you. You can’t manifest the money for something without first making the decision that you are following through No Matter What! This is where most people trip up. They want the money BEFORE they make a decision. That’s not how Spirit works.
Step 2 is EXPECTATION.
You must make your decision and then expect your desire to manifest. You must expect it and be grateful for it as if it’s already here.
Step 3 is TAKE ACTION.
Your desire is not going to fall in your lap. This step is where your ego really kicks in. It will make you afraid to make those necessary sales calls. It will tell you that you’re not good enough. It will bring up any number of fears to keep you exactly where you are.
Something key to understand about your ego is that the truth will liberate you and your ego will keep you a prisoner.
Let me complete this lesson with a powerful quote that I love by Eleanor Roosevelt:
“You must do the things you think you cannot do.”
In other words …
Show your ego who’s boss, and give yourself a new experience which will set you free!
