ego IS DESPERATE
Spirit IS CONFIDENT
Thinking about that bill you can’t pay makes your pulse quicken. Pondering the relationship you feel trapped in or the car that won’t start causes your mind to race. It just takes one thought to start the chain effect, and before you know it you’ve imagined disastrous scenarios and convinced yourself of their inevitability.
After you’ve tumbled down the rabbit hole of desperation, the inclination is to search for the “way out.”
You want so badly to believe that if you repeat a statement like, “I have everything I need” over and over that the very thing you need will magically appear.
The problem is you’re still acting desperate, even though you’ve changed direction somewhat, and that means that ego is still playing out. Besides, how can you not feel hypocritical when you affirm that you have all you need in the midst of needing something? “Where?” ego screams. “I don’t see any money—or a better relationship or a new car.”
The key is allowing ego to remind you of who you really are instead of giving it permission to convince you of who you are not.
The quickest way to do that is to access the confidence of Spirit that says, “You do have everything you need, but right now it might not be in the form you want.”
You might not have a pile of money—or the perfect relationship or a new car—in front of you in this moment, but when you operate from the place of Spirit’s confidence, you soon become aware of the steps that will move you in that direction.
Accessing that confidence opens you to generosity, a connection that is the next step on your path toward experiencing what you need. Don’t mistake “having” for “experiencing.” You do already have everything you need and the confidence that Spirit supplies moves you toward experiencing it when you choose to align with who you really are.
