Most people who come to us for healing learn how to free themselves from ego defences in a relatively short period of time and change their lives. That’s it. You see, when we are lost in ego, we’re lost in deed. It is like an invisible enemy. We cant see it, we seldom feel it and even start to think it is who we are over time. The ego is the side of ourselves that was created to keep us alive and safe. It was there to harden our edges and get us through the bullying and teasing at school. Ego was there to help you when people critisized you, or when you came tenth in a race, while your friends all stood on podiums. But later on in life these ego defences have to go. They have stopped working when depression and anxiety kick in and destroy your odds at a serene and successful life. Ego is overcome with someone who also resides within you – your Sacred Self!
No one has ever seen the face of ego. It is like a ghost that we accept as a controlling influence in our lives. I look upon the ego as nothing more than an idea that each of us has about ourselves. The ego is only an illusion, but a very influential one. Letting the ego-illusion become your identity can prevent you from knowing your true self. Ego, the false idea of believing that you are what you have or what you do, is a backwards way of assessing and living life.
You originated from an invisible spiritual energy field of pure well-being. Your desire is to be balanced in that spirit in your thoughts and behaviours—now, in this life, in this moment, in your bodily form. You want that harmony and sense that it’s available without having to leave your body, or in other words, die. So, in that interpretation, you’re seeking a balance that allows you to die while you’re alive. You’ll return to spirit, the non-form, upon your death, but you have the option of choosing to live in true enlightened balance, or God-realization… now, in this physical state. Your Source doesn’t create from toxicity. It doesn’t fill your veins or your stomach or any part of you with poison or excess. It creates from well-being, balance, and effort-less perfection. This is your spiritual heritage. And love can correct the blunders that distance you from your spiritual self. — Love.

RESEARCH SHOWS EXTRAORDINARY LONG TERM BENEFITS
The truth is that as you increase your ability to embody your Higher Self, you’ll naturally become less identified with the ego. You’ll feel more centered and peaceful, but not because you tried to bully your ego out of existence. You transcend your ego identification by looking at it, understanding it, and loving it. In other words, a healthy relationship to your ego is one in which you don’t have an aggressive agenda.
If you’re wary of approaching your ego in a compassionate way, consider that not doing so might actually present a greater risk. An unhealed relationship to our egos means that we are in an eternal state of internal conflict—a tug of war between our highest Self and the parts of us that are trying to protect us. The less inclined we are to drop the rope, the more strain we feel from the tugging.
Research from 5000 studies and 50 000 reports from Yale, Harvard and Stanford show extraordinary benefits of mindful practice that gets us out of survival mind and emotional memory in the body to a new place of higher thinking, feeling and functioning. Harvard Medical School Phd’s recently announced “extraordinary, long-term benefits” Virgina medical school found that anxiety, mild depression, chromic pain, asthma, ADHD, and high-functioning autism, that can be treated with mind-based interventions.
