Transforming Through Ego Loss


As we progress in the ascension process, one of the major hurdles is ego loss.  Particularly those who are awakened, we go through a period of ego inflation due to our heightened intuitive abilities and accelerated healing abilities.  Therefore, we must overcome this ego inflation or we become stuck in this stage called Spiritual Bypass.  In this phase, we neglect to address our ego due to our ego inflation when ego becomes more powerful.

Once we recognized ego’s control and power over us, we can begin to address ego’s insidious control of us. We observe our ego through our thoughts and behaviors.  How do we know when it is our ego or our higher self?

Ego – negative thoughts, need to always be right, need to control outcome, controlling others, judging, critical, put others down to feel better, need for attention or approval, attachment, codependency, destructive or abusive behaviors, inappropriate boundaries, need to validate self worth, hurting others for self gain, addictions, or compulsive behaviors.

Higher Self – positive thoughts, helping others, loving self, loving others unconditionally, feeling compassion, thoughts of kindness, selfless acts, feeling of self worth, high self esteem, connection to the Divine, feeling oneness with others, gratitude, acceptance, surrender, or living without expectations of outcome.

Once we have identified ego’s thoughts, watch these thoughts objectively like a third-party bystander.  Watch for our emotions rising within, since they will generally be anger, resentment, jealousy, envy, feeling slighted, or feeling negative about ourselves.  Do not react to these emotions, and allow them to pass. If you begin to react, tell yourself that you do not need to react to ego, and comfort yourself with a statement to counter this thought.  For example, your thought is that “someone doesn’t like me,” so your counter thought may be, “they do like me, but they are having a bad day.”  I have repeated this exercise dozens of times each day, in order to subdue my ego.

The more you do this exercise, the less the ego will act out. Remember that when our painbodies are active that is when others trigger our emotional pains or wounds, ego also will be more active.  In these circumstances, we just need to be more aware and may need to repeat this exercise more often.  Hope this helps!  Blessings and light to you, Brooke (Copyright 2013 Burrowing Owl Press/Brooke Chang with All Rights Reserved)

  1. Thanks for sharing this great info! I am well aware of the importance of following this guideline, but still often have difficulty in putting ego aside and letting God’s power do its thing. Do you have any suggestions that can help?


  2. Thank you! My biggest problems are focus and application. I am well aware of the need to put ego aside and live in the Spirit. In fact, I write about it often. For me it’s finding a way to apply everything I;ve learned and to focus on Spirit during very busy days. It’s not enough for me to pray/meditate for 15 minutes and move on. I’m trying to learn ways to constantly be “aware” throughout the ENTIRE day : )


    1. I wish I have an easy answer. It is just constant awareness and vigilance even during our busy days until it becomes second nature. I must confess that I am exhausted most days from my practice, and it even wakes me at night, so I haven’t been sleeping well either. I don’t think there is a magic bullet or pill here. Good luck with your practice! Namaste, Brooke


      1. Thanks, Brooke. It’s like you say…constant awareness and vigilance until it becomes second nature. Sounds like I’m at the right path : )
