Your Ego is NOT your Amigo.
We often think of Ego as a person that’s self-centered, overly confident, arrogant, and maybe a bit narcissistic. The funny thing is, most people that act this way are really very insecure and are projecting.
Ego also comes from a place of judgment and jealousy. If you find yourself saying things like, “I’m not good enough,” “Look what she’s wearing today,” or “Why is she successful and not me?,” then you, my friend, are letting Ego drive.
Get off the Ego bus and let Spirit drive today.
I learned a trick from the book Miracles Now by Gabrielle Bernstein. Wear a rubber band around your wrist (a simple hair tie will do) and every time you say something negative to someone else (or yourself), snap the band on your wrist. Then say something positive: “I am enough,” “I love and appreciate me just as I am today,” or “She is so pretty…yay her for rockin’ that body!”
The more mindful we are of our Ego, the better our relationships with others and ourselves will be.
