What Can I Do to Progress Spiritually?

What Can I Do to Progress Spiritually?

In the process of Ascension (raising one’s vibration), there is a moment where each individual comes face-to-face with the aspects that have been hiding within their deep subconscious memories.

It is not easy to confront these aspects and to look at them honestly, for they originate in past life experiences, and those can be challenging to assess in an impartial manner. When you are living your life now, you have blinders on when it comes to how you view yourself from a past life perspective. We all tend to judge things in an all-or-nothing classification, without taking the time to genuinely look at all pieces of our emotions and behaviors.

I am often asked the question, “What can I do to progress spiritually?” My answer is, “Work at understanding yourself on a deeper level.” For, the answer to that question is ongoing, because as you identify and release one past life, another one is there to examine and release, layer upon layer. And, even when you get to the very core of the energy, there is still the Ego part of you to contend with. This is the part connected to every living being, a part that while once was an asset, now has become like a friend who keeps giving you bad (although well-intended) advice.

Learn to understand your own Ego, what messages does it say to you over-and-over again in your head? Does it put specific expectations on you or what you can do in life? Does it bring emotions into your communications and interactions? Does it keep you trapped in fear? Does it worry about the day-to-day process of life? Because the Ego is attached to the planet, it is best to learn to about all of its tactics and messages.

The Ego comes from a place of meaning well, but it is basing its conclusions on not repeating the hurts from your past lives. By learning how to keep your own Ego in check, you can arrive at a place where you have mastered how to neutralize its force. This is an ongoing task, because as long as you are living on Earth, the Ego will be present. It will change and evolve, but it will be present as long as you are experiencing the incarnation process.  The Ego is a part of the Earthly existence, no different to your physical body. It is the reason why you have chosen to learn in the Earth School versus another plane of learning elsewhere.

The Ego dwells in the extremes; extreme reactions, extreme emotions, extreme highs and lows. It is the Ego that will use terms like “Always” and “Never.” Saying things such as, “I never get help,” or “You always do this to me.” The Ego is not only prideful and self-important, but also fearful and self-defeating. The Ego takes a piece of information, event, occurrence, or situation and gives it an emotional context. The Ego has to convince others of its viewpoint, and sometimes even will try to convince you. Whenever you have to qualify your answer to someone else or to yourself, it is the Ego that is compelled to do so. You neutralize the Ego by learning about the tactics your individual Ego displays.

The more that you learn about your own Ego, the more control you have to keep it from interfering in your life, and the easier it is to move into your Higher Self. That is the ultimate goal of the incarnation process, to overcome the strength of the Ego in such a way that you are able to transform the energy from all previous lifetimes, able to gain completion of what you came to Earth to learn.

There is always something new to learn about yourself, always a new piece of information to discover. The moment you decide you are finished with your learning, is the moment the Ego can exert its influence over you even more. Use the energy of the Now to dive deeper into the recesses of your Ego. When you are honest with this Ego exploration process, you can propel yourself forward into your Soul Mission with greater momentum than you could have ever anticipated.

When you are ready to learn more about the Past Life Patterns you hold (and how to transform them), take the Past Life Quiz.
