Are you connected to the Divine?
Updated: Nov 8, 2021
You are born a spiritual being connected to the divine.
But due to your life experiences, you find yourself listening to your ego. Your ego is the stories you have made up to make logical sense of your circumstances. Those stories could include being unlovable, because your mother does not have the time to be with you, although it is not true, as she does, but needs to work.
This story along with others including those that say you are not worthy, you don’t belong, or you are not good enough form part of your subconscious programmes. Just like computer programmes once those stories, which control your thoughts and subsequently your behaviours are in place they will remain fixed until you delete them or change the location, which changes the story.
However your connection to the divine is outside of you, it is your intuition or higher self, therefore you are able to ask of and receive from the collective power of the universe. Giving you access to amazing support and guidance, which is not restrained by your personal life experiences.
Are you hearing your intuition or ego?
How do you know what you are hearing is your intuition or higher self and not your ego?
Well your ego is the negative aspect of you, because it is trying to protect you, therefore you will hear it repeating the same stories, which are filled with doubt, fear, judgement or loathing.
Whereas your intuition or higher self will guide you with love empowering you to take action, not hold you back.
It takes practice to know if you are listening to your ego or your higher self. But with awareness of your normal thoughts and behaviours you will be able to distinguish between the two. Often you will feel or hear something, rather than thinking, as thinking is your ego’s way of communicating with you.
Learn to recognise you intuition or higher self, by the feelings you have in your body, that gut reaction, where your stomach tightens perhaps, or your heart feels as if there are butterflies flapping their wings in it.
Another way is to ‘hear’ words in your inner ear that you don’t know where they come from, I have been known to have a ‘light bulb’ moment in answer to something I had been trying to work out, that light bulb is the ‘why didn’t I think of that’ moment. It just comes to you!
You will find that you hear or sense more when you are meditating or just as you fall to sleep or as you wake up. Often you connect o your higher self when you are in the shower, as you are relaxed. If your ego starts speaking, acknowledge what you are hearing and send it love, and if you can laugh at it, negative thoughts cannot survive in a light, loving, and humorous environment.
Over time you will find as you keep practice listening to your higher self, you are able to negate your ego’s attempt to control you, allowing you to lead a happier, more fulfilled life.
Remember you are a spiritual being and therefore use your divine connection to guide and support you on your journey through life.
