Everyone is born a psychic. We have heard this said time and time again. So what happens along the way? Everything! From our parents looking at us strangely, to the society telling us that psychics are working for the devil, to us feeling high and mighty because we recognise a gift that others seem not to be having.
All these things add up to our gifts shutting down. The biggest culprit however, becomes the ego. Don’t get me wrong, the ego has it’s place. In it’s purest form, it is supposed to protect you. Keep you safe. When it grows out of control, it then takes the form of pride and malice. It is that voice that tells you not to associate with certain people because they are beneath you! Same voice that tells you ‘look how special you are. You cannot be seriously engaging with people without abilities’. This is completely different from our angels and guides, lovingly showing us the way to go. Your higher self will not approach anything with pride. Angels do not give directives. This goes against Free Will, which humans have been blessed with. They can only gently show you the consequences of following the path you are on, and nudge you onto a different path. This can only happen, however, if you are willing to listen.
So how do we control, or what I am calling ‘Quieten’ the ego? Acknowledge that the ego is part of you. There to serve you. Talk to your angels, spirit guides, higher self, God, or whoever you consider your guiding light. Tell them that you want to recognise when the ego comes to play. Once you recognise the ego, it is not your job to shut it out. Recognise what it is saying, depending on the circumstance. See if it is valid. Ask for advice from high and conciously tell your ego that you understand it is trying to protect you, but there is a better way.
This way, the ego will not one day riot on you, which can sometimes become very devastating (read substance and self abuse). On certain occassion, let the ego come out to play. Brag about an achievement (that’s your ego). With time and a lot of work on your part, you will start recognising which part of you is communicating. The Ego, the logic mind, your angels and archangles, spirits and guides or higher self.
