How to Know if You’re Lying to Yourself

Part 2

Your body knows when you’re lying, even if your mind does not…

Your egomind runs a slick carnival of lies. It’s hard to know which of your thoughts are true and which are white lies created by your ego to prevent you from reaching clarity.

Why does the ego do this?

The ego is like an embattled, scarred, and bitter warrior. Every time you gain clarity on your purpose/your mission/your truth; you need the ego that much less. This forces the ego to fight for dominance… To stay alive, the ego responds to your newfound clarity with a relentlessly aggressive barrage of believable lies.

This is why it often feels like two steps forward, one step back when you’re starting to hone in on who you are, your life purpose, and how to live your mission.

The only force preventing you from making leaping advances on your dreams is your own fear; one of your ego’s favorite weapons of war.

It becomes very difficult to know whether your intuition or your fear is guiding you.

Intuition is always truth, fear is usually a lie.

In the first part of this series, I wrote about how analyzing behaviors like procrastination can help you discern if you’re lying to yourself. Dig through your layers of justifications and you’ll likely hit upon an underlying truth that’s obscured by excuses.

    This is fantastic and so helpful for me! I have been fighting and trying to ignore my truth for a long time, but with bits of insight I am finally letting it come through. Reading this now has helped me to break through some of the last hangups regarding my separation, and I am finally allowing myself to speak the truth to myself. Loudly and clearly with strength and a smile on my face, instead of cowering behind the lies of victim each time the truth peeks out! Thank You
