This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from an individual who wishes to remain anonymous.
David, I've heard you mention the role the ego plays in stopping you from manifesting. How do I identify if my ego is trying to stop me?
Hi 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.
And your ego can be very tricky!
Let me give you an example…
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 for something, 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 take action to achieve your desire. Some reasons your ego will use are:
- it's not the right time
- you don't want to travel
- you don't have enough money
- you don't deserve it
- people will laugh at you
- you will fail and everyone will find out
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.
Spirit does not speak to you through fear. Period.
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”. To simplify it, you can't want something without it already being present.
And your ego doesn't want you to take action toward your desire because in taking action you grow.
