An Authentic Life

Today's Quote: "Thoroughly unprepared we take the step into the afternoon of life; worse still, we take this step with the false assumption that our truths and ideals will serve us as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the programme of life's morning; for what was great in the morning will be little at evening, and what in the morning was true will at evening become a lie" ~ From The Stages Of Life by Carl Jung

Today's Question: How can you step away from ego?

How I apply:

The ego is a tricky devil. We live this way in the early years of our lives and some people live it on and on. It ultimately becomes inauthentic and unfulfilling. Our ego says we should have possessions and pure driven ambition and that we will be nothing without accolades or achievements. This is the morning of life with which Jung refers.

There may come a time when we peer cautiously into a different space inside of us and hear the whisperings of something new, a longing for something more authentic and true to who we are, what our soul knows. Listening to our soul can be scary. Many of my clients are afraid of what they might find there. Yet this is the only way we can become more in line with who we are, what we value and how we show up in the world.

I continue to struggle with this myself. More and more though I am letting the ego quiet down and my soul to find it's clear voice inside. It is more loving, more nurturing, more peaceful and giving. It wishes to hold me in its arms yet allows me to be free to make errors along the way.
I wish this for you too. The energy of the world is changing, people aren't tolerating what they used to. You only have to watch or read the news stories to see this. Global shifts in consciousness are upon us. Now is the time of the soul...♡


  1. It is sometimes very hard to step away from the ego.
    And sometime when I step away it follows me. ;-D
    Have a great weekend.

  2. It is one of the hardest things for us to do Marie. It can take a lifetime :)
