How do we diminish the Ego?

Today I have a funny story to tell ...  Tonight I am attending the Seder dinner at the Kabbalah Centre in London. It is part of Pesach, Hebrew for Passover, and the point of the week is to take the air out from under our Ego's wings. The Kabbalistic definition of the Ego is slightly different to the one used in Energy Healing. Think back to those kiddie cartoons where a little angel and a little devil sit on the character's shoulders. The voice of your Higher Self is the Angel. The voice of the Ego is the little devil and it is there to test our resolve. It gives us a choice. When we listen to the angel our soul shines brighter. When we listen to the little devil we get a dose of instant gratification and then a slump.


Many of the techniques we've learned in the Kabbalah Centre are about using awareness and behavioural psychology to give the little devil the boot. Having that awareness gives us a choice. It is up to us which one we act on. Listening to the Light (the little angel) makes it stronger. Listening to the Ego does the same. This next week is supposed to give us an opportunity tilt the scales in favor of the Light, not the Ego. This is why I am giving up wheat, bread and all things that rise this week - they are said to feed the Ego. The food we can eat this week is supposed raise our vibration. I have never tried this before and it is an experiment for me. Pesach is said to help us break free of that Ego voice. I will give it a try.   =)

As part of the run up to tonight, we were meant to meditate on specific Astrological signs for the past 12 days. Each day corresponds to an astrological sign and we meditate on the positives of that sign. I only decided to sign up for the Pesach dinner last Wednesday so in theory I got the prep work a little bit late. As luck would have it, Madonna (the rock star) had been posting those meditations on her Facebook Page all along. I had actually seen them on her page and had been going back everyday to see what came next. LOL. So even though I didn't know it at the time, I completed most of the prep work for tonight's dinner. What a coincidence! 

This is one of the meditations on Madonna's FB Page. I am an Aquarius and sometimes find it hard not to be unique lol:





ps ... For some reason having Homer Simpson and these Hebrew letters on the same post looks funny to me. Image Sources: 20th Century Fox (Simpsons) and Madonna's Facebook Page (Hebrew).
