Dear Ego

(this prayer is inspired by Matt Kahn)

I know there are things you want. I know you have opinions and beliefs. I know you want to be in charge. I know you always have safety in mind. I know you remember everything that has happened. I know you feel hurt and pain and never want to feel those emotions again. I know you believe what is right and wrong. I know you want your way.

I appreciate your help in taking care of me and everything I want in life. I am grateful for your alertness and the wisdom you have gleaned from every experience. I know you feel frustrated at times when I don’t cooperate with your wishes. I know you are scared. I am grateful for your strength and perseverance. I am grateful for your will.

Let me introduce myself. I am the spirit that inhabits the same vessel with you. I am a partner that uses imagination to dream beyond the walls of safety. I am connected with Soul, the great I Am, the silent partner in this human life that is the forever engine. The great I am is the keeper of the blueprint. Your job in this vessel has helped navigate us through human time. You are outstanding in your accomplishments and your courage is admired.

Times are changing. Evolution is happening and integration is called for. Changes feel threatening. That is what is expected. As ego, you have built your walls on conditioned existence. A great change is taking place that requires full management of your skills. It is time to integrate your mastery. Integration allows us to go beyond the limiting walls of an old paradigm and discover so much more. Integration means giving up control. Integration is cooperation. Together there is so much more to see and it requires you to let go and soar beyond your fear.

It feels like death. It smells like the end. It is neither. It is a “cosmic reset” of all aspects of your nature and it is at hand. Integration is predestined and can’t be controlled. There is no turning back or hunkering down to ignore the inevitable. It is in the blueprint and it is at hand.

This evolution is happening across the globe. All humans are transforming through this evolutionary process. These changes vary depending on human will, levels of fear, and forces of resistance. The atmosphere of humanity is breathing a new air.

As the breaking down of an old paradigm continues, I will not abandon you. The theories of cause and effect do not apply. Reward and punishment are part of the old paradigm. Integration does not make sense to the human mind grasping for logic and reason. As spirit, I see beyond these limiting walls and I ask you stay steadfast and present as we maneuver through the chaos and fear together. We hold wisdom in our being. We are in this together.

Life will be different, better on every level than you can ever imagine. It requires you letting go of control first. How else will you ever know the truth?

Allow this prayer to ease your grip on life. Allow this prayer to blend with your beliefs and take up space in your locked walls. Allow this prayer to soften your rules.

My love holds you. I honor you. I appreciate you. Thank you for joining me on this journey. Thank you for letting go. One step at a time. One day at a time. One breath at a time.

Our Inner Wisdom Voices by Don Iannone

Find your inner wisdom voice– There lies your personal truth. Listen past your fears– They drown out what is true for you. Look beyond your anger– Which often is buried under your fear. Set aside your desires and wants, and
