How To Tell Your Intuition + Ego Apart

How To Tell Your Intuition + Ego Apart

This may be one of the top 5 things that people struggle with in their spirituality + connection to their Higher Self and Source. How do you tell your intuition and your ego apart?! How can you know what you are choosing is what is right for you? And how can you know for sure which voice in your head is that of wisdom, and which one is of ego. I can tell you that there are some very simple ways to detect which voice + thought pattern is which, but sometimes it is very hard to tell the two apart.

So how can you easier tell your inner voices apart? It’s easier than you may think! And still, sometimes it will be difficult to find your true soul answers, but I have a few tricks for those times too.

Which voice is kind?

Each of us has a quiet, calm, and kind whisper within us, and a loud, defensive, not so kind voice to balance that. Your intuition will be the voice speaking to you softly, with clear knowing and trust. This whisper may not know how things will happen, but it knows they will. Whereas the ego voice will question everything the quiet heartfelt whisper is telling you, and will find ways to make you doubt what that simple, trusting whisper will have to say.


Which voice knows that you are divine?

Often times, we will find that the whispering voice believes that you can do anything (because you can, duh.), and the louder defensive ego voice will promote, and sometimes scream at you, limiting belief patterns. The voice that is completely faithful in your capability, magic, and willingness to trust in what it has to say is your intuition. The voice that forces possible problems down your throat, and questions your capability and magic, and tries to guilt you into playing small, that is your ego.


Which voice is understanding?

The two voices within us usually have these two undertones or personality types, 1) judgemental AF or 2) universally understanding. When you learn to seperate your intuition from your ego and acknowledge what each voice sounds like, and how each one acts, you will find this to be true for yourself. Look for guidance from the voice that encompasses universal understanding. This relates to the self, too. Which voice understands what you want, or are trying to achieve, and which voice is judgemental and questions your own desires? That which is understanding is your higher self, and that is where your intuition lies.


Where does this voice speak from?

Our ego speaks from our headspace, it is logical, and it follows and feeds into its own thought patterns of negativity, doubt, self-sabotage, and fear. Our intuition speaks from our heart space, and only offers its wisdom for you if you’d like to trust in its guidance. Where are the thoughts you are hearing speaking from? There you can see which voice is intuition and which is ego. Feel into the thought, and feel where it speaks from. Your heartspace is where your higher self exists, your headspace is where our biology allows us to analyze. Follow your heartspace. Analyzing has a place and time, but when you are seeking your own intuitive guidance it has no place.


Which voice knows, and which voice questions?

The voice that knows is the voice that speaks your truth. When you hear your intuition, what is says is, “This is your path. No questions, this is where you need to go/what you need to do.” The voice that questions, what a cute little ego, is the voice that says, “But what about this, and this, and this and this and this?!! What about those, huh? This isn’t going to work.” *insert sarcasm here* That voice doesn’t sound threatened by the clarity and cool-as-a-cucumber vibe that the other voice offered you, right? The voice that is cool as a cucumber is the one that speaks your truth and is offering you your divine guidance + work.



The more you listen to that quiet whisper, the louder it will become and the easier it will be to see, feel, and hear. I’d love to know which tool was your favorite to recognize the difference between your ego + intuition, so please feel free to share with us in the comments below!

Your Intuition Is Your Soul Compass

Your Intuition Is Your Soul Compass

In many of my recent mentoring sessions (for which I have 4 intensive program spaces open, for more info click here) the intuition has been a big topic of growth for many people. Now, before you try to tell me, “Oh, but I’m not intuitive.” let me say, everyone has gifts, everyone has an intuition, and you must practice listening and being open if you’d like to experience or work with that part of yourself.

So why does the intuition come up in mentoring sessions so often? Life gets us distracted easily, and even though we hear those intuitive whispers, other things pull at our thoughts and distract us from our own clarity. That’s truly the biggest thing people find too, is that they had the clarity they were seeking, they just wouldn’t allow themselves to trust in it until I could validate it for them or reflect it back to them. So many women come to me with their problems and opportunities for growth and express their feelings of how unclear they are, and then continue to express to me exactly what they want. Exactly what direction they want to go in, or what would feel best to them.

Ahh, ladies (and guys, too) we must not dismiss those whispers. Because those whispers are soul answers that are divinely guided specifically for you along your journey. But you know that! Maybe you just need me to validate it for you or reflect it back to you?

Here is the deal, our intuition is our soul compass and when we do not follow it, trust it, and ground ourselves into it, that my friends is when and why we find ourselves feeling so lost and confused. “But what does intuition even feel (or sound) like?” you may ask… Your intuition sounds like the kindest whispering voice in your mind. When you listen to it and tune into it, it will grow louder. Your intuition feels like the truth. Take a deep inhale. Now exhale and allow yourself to sink into your heart.

Did you feel that? That is where your soul knowing resides, within all of the love that you are. Your intuition feels like that, too. Like what you’re experiencing is right, and serves the highest good of all. What your intuition is not is greedy, mean, or self-deprecating. That my dear, would be your ego-mind. Learning the difference between the two can rock your world, and break it open (in a very very good way). I invite you today to observe this for yourself — What does your heart and soul say? What does your ego say? What feels right and good? And what feels out of alignment and out of your truth?

Everyone has an intuition, and a soul knowing within, are you open to yours? Do you want to experience the divine unshakeable guidance that you already encompass? Listen to the quietest, kindest voice in your mind. Follow what feels right, even if it feels a little odd or scary. Listen to what your heart space has to say. Feel that clarity, allow yourself to trust in it, and to follow it with conviction. Your life will expand as your openness to your guidance expands.
