Some of you may have seen the buzz lately on socials about EGO work, trauma and emotional triggers. It really is important work and something all of us should take seriously but with compassion and patience. The key to this work is awareness.
We all have an ego and the purpose of that ego is to protect us. It is there to protect our inner child and make sure we survive. Many of us don’t realise the extent and depth of our ego, how it can rule our life if we let it. This is why befriending the ego is helping you step onto the path of enlightenment.
Our triggers are there to help us grow. They are attached to painful memories from our past that need to be healed. This is a lifelong journey. Truth bomb… there is no quick fix. One of my spiritual teachers Dr. Wayne Dyer says that EGO stands for ‘Edging God Out’. Ultimately this means edging the light out, the divine energy, the Tao, the Universe, however you see or believe. What we call it does not matter. It is always working and is divinely created. We disconnect to what we are made of, this divine energy that created us all.
One of the main aspects of my work is making sure my clients connect to nature and their higher self. This is because nature is a part of us as much as we are a part of it. And our higher self is the part of us that knows what we need to feel aligned.
We are all connected by the same energy, it runs through each of us. We all have our own path to take and along that path we will face the whispers and echoes of our Ego and its opinion. It will keep you in your comfort zone and away from any risk or danger. It will criticise your decisions, choices and your mistakes. But if we connect to our higher self and raise our consciousness daily we can quieten the Ego’s voice. Yes we have to listen to our triggers, work through each of them to help us grow and heal.
How do we do this? A commitment to raising our consciousness, doing the work. Taking a daily practice and working through the pain and the wins. I like to be in nature. I find many answers here. We all come from unconditional love, love is the highest frequency of them all. Raising our consciousness is where we start to become more aware of this divine creator and what we are here to do.
The Tao teaches us that all the answers we seek are within nature. I include nature as part of my daily ritual. To be outside where we can be in touch with the elements and the energy that connects us. Being around the trees has to be one of the most profound energies I have felt, they have their own communication system through their roots. After being attuned to Reiki I started to feel Mother Earth’s heartbeat through nature. The more I connected to the energy around me the more I could surrender to the Divine and trust my path.
Nature blooms in the spring and sheds in the fall. We too share this same cycle as nature does each year. It helps us to stay grounded and gives us clarity in our life. It is where we find the answers. Step outside today, connect to the elements, sit by a tree and feel its presence. It has its own frequency and can assist you to elevate your vibration and your intentions. Yes, our Ego may creep in and whisper things like ‘hugging a tree is weird, people will think you are strange, go back home and put the TV on etc’. The ego wants us to stay comfortable and within our walls. Stepping outside these walls will free your soul and help you connect to your purpose and awareness.
Why not become attuned to Reiki?
Become a healer. Empowering others to heal themselves, is the greatest gift of all. Start to feel the heartbeat of nature beneath your feet and through your very own hands, it will help you find the answers you seek.
I would love to be your Reiki Master.
