The Akashic Records are records of your soul’s energy and hold the key to who you really are. But sometimes, what your soul is saying is overshadowed by another internal energy, the Ego.
The Ego can be the toughest cat to wrangle. If you’re not careful it will reveal its incredibly sharp claws and take no prisoners. Going down the slippery slope of letting your ego be in control can be easy to identify, but the ability to stop it in its tracks is the tough part.
What is the Ego?
Have you ever heard that little voice inside that you don’t quite recognize? The one that feeds into your inner mean girl, but when you listen and operate from that place, you’re left feeling icky and unrecognizable. The ego is that part of us that seeks approval. The one that will stop at nothing, trampling things in the way to get what we (think we) want. It’s the part of us that’s constantly seeking approval outside of ourselves, which puts us in a place of lack.
How to identify when the Ego takes over
Take a look at the way you operate in a social setting. Do you often feel you are better than others, looking down on them or feeling pity? On the flip side, do you often feel like others are looking at you in this way?
The Ego (aka “Edging God Out”) shows up when we are feeling confident an,d also when we feel low. The Ego can be both the angel and the devil on your shoulder.
Basically, the Ego is the first voice we hear in our heads when we’ve messed up and when we’re on fire. The Ego reacts to what’s going on in front of us, whether through fear, arrogance, pity or the like. Those I’m not good enough or I’m better than anyone else thoughts are the Ego’s best work.
The difficulty presents itself when we start listening to the Ego as truth and can no longer hear our soul guiding us.
What is Soul guidance?
You know that feeling you have when you’re doing something you enjoy, where you’re so engrossed that you look at the clock and think, “Whaaa, how has 4 hours gone by?!” ? Some people call it a “flow state”, others call it your “soul’s truth”. Whatever terminology you choose, there’s no denying that this childlike state of bliss occurs when we awaken the genius within, leaving us feeling fulfilled, but not riding a high (which is a game the Ego plays).
How to listen to your Soul
Because the soul operates from an internal knowing, a state of higher good, there is almost no time to have the Ego running stories in your head about not being good enough, or being better than everyone else. When you can truly operate from your soul’s truth, things start to flow with ease. You no longer have to fight against your nature, as you’re simply showing up and listening to what’s in your heart. You’re honoring your guidance.
Each of us is born with our own truth. Our own genius. A reason we are put on this planet. Cutting out all the noise and allowing the soul to take the driver’s seat gives us a chance to slow down, look inward and trust ourselves.
Ways to tap into your Soul’s guidance
If losing yourself in a flow state is a distant memory, don’t worry, there are ways to tap in again and reignite your soul’s calling. Below are a few that many of my clients find very helpful.
The simplest, cheapest way to tap back into yourself, without involving anyone else. You can literally meditate anywhere, anytime. If you need to take a few minutes to reground, meditation is accessible to you, so long as you have an understanding of your needs to reach a state of silence within your own mind. This can take some practice if you’re new, but like any muscle, meditation strengthens the more you practice.

There is no right or wrong way to get your thoughts down on paper. It often helps by starting to free write – jotting down whatever is on your mind, just to get it out. Once the top of mind worries of the day are gone, settle in and try asking yourself a few questions that you’d like answered, again, just writing what comes to you, without agenda.
Acknowledging how you are showing up and what place you’re operating from is the first step to identifying your Ego’s presence and shifting your perspective so you can finally listen to the call within your heart. This is your true guide and will allow you to be yourself, finally banishing the ego back into the cage, where it belongs.
