Clear the Mind of Ego

The ego is a self-destructive force. It’s that little voice in your head that is criticizing the world around you on rapid fire. Most people are so used to it that they don’t realize that it’s not really them. Think of the ego as your inner child wanting to get its way; you must learn to speak to it accordingly to tame it. Once you can clear your mind and detach from your ego, you will see the world in a new light. This is one of the most difficult processes but is equally as rewarding once achieved.

In The Power of Intention, Author Doctor Wayne W. Dyer offers Seven Steps for Overcoming Ego’s Hold on You:

  1. Stop being offended
  2. Let go of your need to win
  3. Let go of your need to be right
  4. Let go of your need to be superior
  5. Let go of your need to have more
  6. Let go of identifying yourself on the basis of your achievements
  7. Let go of your reputation

Once you can clear your mind of this negativity, you clear space for positivity. Letting go of the ego is a catalyst to manifesting your dream reality. When you are too caught up with your placement in humanity, comparing yourself to others, over thinking, worrying, you deprive yourself of happiness and in doing so deprive the world of the beauty you can create. Neville Goddard, author of The Power of Awareness, uses the analogy of a vine to help understand how removing negative thoughts, or branches, creates the space for a more noble life to flourish:

“By vine is meant your imagination which in its uncontrolled state, expends its energy in useless or destructive thoughts and feelings. But you, just as the vine is pruned by cutting away its useless branches and roots, prune your imagination by withdrawing your attention from all unlovely and destructive ideas and concentrating on the ideal you wish to attain. The happier more noble life you will experience will be the result of wisely pruning your own imagination.”
