Fear, suspicion, and doubt are the primary weapons of the ego. The ego uses these tools as a means for separation, which is it's means for survival. If you were to integrate yourself into Oneness, there would be no more ego. It knows this and thus utilizes your own emotional wounds and limiting beliefs to keep certain people, places, and events at bay.
Instead of looking at the world through fearful, suspicious eyes, try creating one day this week from a heart centered place of love and trust. You needn't throw yourself blindly to the wind trusting every single person whom approaches you, however you can allow yourself to release fear and doubt-that you may be able to actually let yourself to interact with certain people.
When you are approaching people on the sidewalk or at the coffee shop, the ego will already be helping you to size them up. By the time they are within a foot of you the ego has already helped you to estimate their net-worth, their physical appeal, and/or even whether they are a good person or not. The ego loves this way of life because it is full of value judgments which assure it's continued survival.
An idea, if you will. Try utilizing emotional release techniques to release and allow your way past the ego. If there is a person or situation in your life that causes you immediate anger, jealousy, fear, suspicion, doubt, envy, or whatever the case may be-it is also a gateway to heal that part of yourself. If you have the courage to attempt to release these feelings you will see that they were only illusions to begin with. They are your own past, continuously creating and recreating itself over and over again. It's like living inside of an invisible prison with invisible bars, that you do not even know that you are trapped inside of.
1)Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and relax.
2)Now, ask yourself if you could allow yourself to feel as strongly as you possibly can, the feelings that you have about this person?
3)Allow yourself to sit and be with this for a moment, then answer 'yes' or 'no'.
4)Next, ask yourself if you could let this go? Just for a moment, could you just let it go? Be emotionally honest with yourself, 'yes' or 'no' is fine, does not matter.
5)Now ask yourself, would you be willing to let this go?
6)Now ask yourself, when would you let this go?
7)This entire process usually only takes 2-3 minutes. You may repeat it as many times as needed or until the emotion has been released.
Don't be surprised if you allow yourself to experience new people, places, and events after you do these exercises…maybe even after only one time! Just like peeling the layers of the onion, do not be fooled, this is a journey and there are always more layers to peel.
