When you want to bring change into your life, how can you tell if it’s motivated by your higher self or your physical self?
Discerning between the two can be a challenge, but over time, you can start to tell the difference emotionally and energetically.
The first thing to become conscious of is why you are creating the change i.e. what is your intention?
Are you doing it to seek approval, power and financial gain? Or, are you doing it because it’s going to allow you to expand and grow and express more of your true self?
Egos thrive in competition and tend to see everything in black and white.
When your ego is running the show, you will have a hard time relinquishing any control to others. You will also tend to try and dominate situations and others.
When you are working in tandem with your Soul, you feel empowered and you can cope with uncertainty while things unfold and reveal themselves. You will develop a new trust in life and yourself. You will begin to notice the role that synchronicity plays in your life.
Egos are invested in what other people think and so they create out of fear and insecurity. Fear is a very low vibration. When you create using fear, you will be in effort and force things. It won’t be much fun and it will feel like hard work!
Connecting with your spiritual energy will allow you to create in unique ways so you can express yourself and your ideas. The Soul creates out of love, joy, inspiration and enthusiasm. When you are confronted with a challenge or an obstacle, you will intuitively find a solution and know that in the end everything will work out.
Your ego will lead you to believe that you and you alone are responsible for your creativity, that you personally need to make everything happen and that the answers you are looking for are outside of you.
When you are aligned to your spirit, you begin to operate on an entirely different level of reality. When you are in flow, you transcend the physical world to access pure creativity and inspiration. There is an organic flow to what you do and a sense of timelessness!
When you think about what you want to create, how does it make you feel? You should continually ask yourself!
Why am I doing this? Is it for recognition, pride, to feel secure or is it because it makes me happy, connected and motivated by helping others?
Pay attention to how it feels in your body. Does it feel like you have a knot in your stomach, tightness or a headache, or does it feel light and expansive?
Start to check in with yourself so you can learn to distinguish the difference between the two voices.
