I've written several posts about how to lead from a place of love, how to connect with spirit and how to distinguish the difference between the voice of your spirit (true self, soul) and your ego voice. Today my ego was having a fit with me by making me feel sorry for myself and needy. I knew it was my ego voice because ego is needy, while spirit is not.
As soon as I grasped that my ego was having a party at my expense, I try to take some time to meditate and reconnect with my spirit. This practice helps me to remember that happiness, joy and love are generated from within me. Then it dawned on me that no matter where I go and who comes into and goes out of my life, my spirit will always be with me. I will eternally have the ability to connect with spirit to choose positive thinking and loving actions.
Because spirit is constantly with me, I have an endless supply of love, joy, happiness, compassion, kindness, hope, and sympathy in my heart. All I have to do is consciously focus on my heart and repeat some affirmations in the mirror, and before a minute has passed, I'm feeling better and more connected with my true self.
We are human and our egos get to us sometime making us feel desperate or pitiful and needy. Bad things happen in our lives, and we often have to face difficult choices. The negative feelings serve you only as a trigger that you need to realign your thinking. Maybe you need a nap or some food. We aren't all happy all the time, but we can surround ourselves with positive things, focus on choosing to be happy and apply the law of attraction to draw happiness and joy into our lives by consciously making the effort to be happy and joyful ourselves.
I find great comfort in knowing I have an ally with me at all times to turn to for comfort and an attitude adjustment. I hope you find peace and support in your constant friend, your spirit, because you can!
