Ego and Personality are interconnected, the clue is in the word ‘personal’. What is personal is ego, what is personal is of the personality.
When we experience soul integration, we begin to embrace our soul as our sense of self instead of the ego/personality. The more the integration evolves within us, the more our sense of self changes.
What are the differences between being our personality/ego and being our soul? Here are four ways to tell the difference:
- EGO comes from a sense of separateness. As our personality/ego, we view ourselves as a separate entity within the world, we are therefore subject to the views of others and find it difficult to move into a state of sovereignty with ourselves.
SOUL is never separate and always perceives self from a state of oneness with all. Soul is beyond personality, soul constantly exists beyond space and time, soul is energy and therefore perceives itself as energy, the same energy that everything is made of. Soul is never anything other than a pure expression of the divine source, therefore soul is always sovereign. From the stance of being integrated with our soul, we are always in our sovereignty, always embodying supreme liberation and our personal power.
- EGO personalises. Our personality/ego takes things personally, something most of us do many times a day, in little ways or big ways. Because of that sense of separation, ego perceives that the words and actions of others are personal, therefore, we are subject to taking offence. When we personalise, we respond in one of two ways, either we put ourselves down or we big ourselves up. Either way, we are covering for a low sense of self-worth. Personalising is all about low self-worth.
SOUL never personalises because of soul’s constant awareness that it is interconnected to all that is. If a person says something cutting, whether intentional or not, soul observes but takes no offence. What is there to be offended about? Soul doesn’t have a self-worth problem, it simply isn’t relevant because soul is complete and fulfilled and is never seeking the acceptance or admiration of any other. Soul’s self-belief is beyond question because soul is its own source of love, acceptance and approval. Soul is sovereign in all areas.
- EGO experiences hurt feelings. A sense of separateness and tendency to personalise leads to hurt feelings. Ego/personality is wont to experience hurt feelings commonly due to identifying as a separate, vulnerable being. Why would we be hurt if we didn’t believe what was being said? Or fear there is some truth there? Why would we value the opinion of someone who could hurt us? Ego is not confident in its own self-worth. Ego cares about what others think of us because we haven’t embraced our authentic self yet.
SOUL does not feel hurt in any situation because soul knows that nothing is personal, since nothing is separate. Even in the face of the greatest offence, soul is unflappable and does not perceive an attack. Soul is only ever authentic and therefore would never accept and believe the voice of another over and above their own inner true voice. Soul only ever hears the inner true voice inside. When we are soul, we are sovereign, we are true to ourselves without question.
- EGO defends itself. Ego/personality spends most of its time trying to defend the persona. Persona is the construct of self we create to protect ourselves, it is not our authentic self. Ego believes this is necessary to protect us from harm and from realising all the traumas and wounds of the past that could hurt us if we accepted them. Ego, therefore, does everything it can to deflect, deny, blame, avoid and otherwise defend. Defence is all about lack of trust in ourselves, about coming from a place of separateness. It’s all about caring more about what others think than owning our truth.
SOUL has nothing to defend. Soul is only ever authentic at all times, soul is the self’s truth. Soul just is.
When we undergo soul integration, we are inviting our soul into our body space to fulfil the role that our ego/personality is struggling to achieve. Our soul is much better equipped for the job and brings so many rich gifts, skills and tools with it. Our soul is all that we are and ever have been, throughout every incarnation. As we integrate more and more with our soul, we lose those experiences that are coming from ego/personality and become a being that is living in the physical upon the Earth as a soul, a being of light and love who transcends the limitations of the ego and embodies the authentic truth of our being.
The Soul Integration workshop is about to be launched here soon. This is energy work that goes deep and downloads all you need to embrace and embody your soul in every aspect of your life. You will claim the full spectrum of your soul, all the skills, talents and abilities that your soul holds for you. You will uncover your soul destiny and connect with your soul family. You are walking a pathway upon the Earth and it’s sometimes a struggle to move through that pathway. By connecting with your soul, you are empowered, all that you are is empowered, to manifest and exist fully, absolutely and completely upon the Earth. Time to be your best self.
