Overcoming Fears and Struggle of Ego – Surrendering To Spirit

Until you surrender to your spirit and allow it to take over your life, what you’ve learnt won’t make any difference. You will remain trapped in the world revolution, struggling to stay a step ahead of the fears. Every time you surrender to spirit, the outcome is so positive, so surprising, and so much better than your ego could have ever created on its own that before you know it, it becomes obvious that aligning with your spirit is the only sane way to live. Any effort you make-every struggle you face and overcome-will always pay off. through spirit.

To generally feel the power of spirit, you must make it a central part of your life-something to which you connect to automatically without cause or hesitation.

An altar is meant to be a visual reminder to you to go within through prayer, meditation, contemplation, song, or in true issue listening. An altar creates in you an intention to detach from the outer world of ego-oriented power and shoot internally to an elevated dimension of love in your heart.

Sitting at your altar trains your conscious and subconscious mind to change familiar ego patterns (which have habitually controlled you) opening you up to a more loving, authentic frequency of spirit.

Altars also serve as energetic portals, or openings, to spirit.  When you enter this sacred energy, the veil between the worlds disappear, and the heavens open up to allow miracles to happen in your life.

At first, your connection to spirit may be so subtle that you hardly notice the changes through your senses, but with repeated visits, your perception of this vibrational pattern becomes stronger, linking you to a feeling of serene peace and joy.

Where to place your altar

Set up your altar in a room that’s not used every day, such as the spare room or dining room or simply clear a small area in any room.

What to place on your altar.

Use whatever energetically resonates with you that touches your heart. Use images or things that really speak to you, such as a picture of a spiritual figure, like mother Mary, Jesus, or an ascendant master teacher. Include photos of the people you love, such as your family and friends and your pets or stop to use fresh cut flowers, fresh herbs and spices, or a bowl of clean water changed daily. You could use crystals, especially quartz, bird feathers, bells, chimes and anything else that resonates with your heart.

Approaching your altar

Approach the altar as if you are entering a doorway into a sacred space in which you will shift out of automatic consciousness and into the subtle realm where your divine spirit will meet its source. Simple ways of doing this may be lighting a candle or a stick of incense, or ringing a small bell.

Visualise yourself floating in the centre of an energetic cube in space. See yourself surrounded by the energy in all six directions: North, South, East, West, above, and below.


Once you’re sitting at your altar, turn your body to the East. Ask your imagination to feel its spirit.

The vibration of the East energises your spirit with new ideas, inspiration, creating insight, innovation, and opportunities for a fresh start. Appeal to the spirit of the East if you feel that you need a burst of any creativity or an infusion of new experiences. Ask for exciting opportunities or experiences if you’re at a dead end or a point in time when you feel uninspired.


Next, turn and face the spirit of the West.

Its desire is to serve you by pulling away energies, activities, or experiences that no longer serve you or have value in your life. What in your life needs to be finished or completed? In what ways do you need to move on and become more present in your life? The West energy is used to remove all blocks so that you can continue to expand your full authentic expression in the natural flow of life.


Turn your body to face the spirit of the north.

The energy of the North spurs you into action and helps get you moving in the direction of your authentic self. The energy of the North guides you forward in life and reveals your next step to your next creation. This is the spirit of your dreams, your desires, and your intentions. Invoke the North spirit whenever you feel that you’ve lost your way. Call upon it when you doubt yourself or feel out of touch with your passion. North will ignite your inner fire and keep you moving forward.


The South spirit embodies an inner-knowing and calls upon you to remember who you are.

It guides you away from the immediate uncertain circumstances and leads you into the peaceful place where thought ceases, feelings quiet, and the ancient wisdom speaks. South is the spirit of truth. Call upon the South energy when you’ve lost your connection with your true self and no longer feel your path under your feet. Seek its power when peace is what you need.


Turn your attention to the space above you to the heavens.

The heavens provide companionship, assistance, healing, support, direction, confirmation, and assurance. Make contact with the heavens when you don’t know how to chart your course, or how to stay on the path, or to rise to new dimensions. Ask the spirit above to lead the way and keep you true to yourself.


Turn to the spirit of the Earth to the great mother,

Gaia, the divine being that provides a solid foundation to your feet. Tune in to the full awareness of her gifts to share with you in every way through nature all around you.

Reaching the heart space

Standing in front of your altar, now bring your full attention to the very centre of your heart. This is the point where all six spirits commune. In the heart space you cease to be contained by time or space, by your history or family, or by past or present circumstances. All this fades away as mere experience, but not your true self.

With each breath in, envisage a way around and around just as if you were a stream of water running down the drain. Stop, sit quietly in that space for a few minutes, remembering to relax, feel, and listen.

    I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how

  30. I tend not to drop a leave a response, but after reading through some of the remarks on this page Overcoming Fears and Struggyle of Ego – Surrendering To Spirit.
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you
    if you do not mind. Coul it be only me or does itt look like a
    few of the remarks appear like they arre left by brain dead individuals?
    😛 And, if you are posting at other online sites, I’d like too keep up
    with you. Would you make a list of all of all your
    shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    • Thank you for your comments – my purpose is to reach out to anyone who is willing to understand that there is another way to life, other than that which society has taught us. If someone, somewhere can gain a little something from my website – then that is one life I have touched. As for the quality of their comments – However they express themselves is perfect as that is where they are on their journey. I really appreciate every one of them.

      The only thing that surprises me is that most people who kindly leave comments seem to be attracted to this one post on “Overcoming Fears and Struggle of Ego” – as I get ALL responses no matter which post they respond to – and I’ll respond back to them as well.

      I sure do have other online profiles – if you just google https://www.facebook.com/PermanentLifeChanges, or https://plus.google.com/u/0/+PermanentlifechangesCoaching/posts – you’ll get my posts as well.

      Currently I’m not posting as much as I’m in the process of collating ALL of my COACHING EXPERIENCE and KNOWLEDGE into a product called http://www.RelationshipRescueMadeEasy.com which is taking up most of my time – but it is ready for launch now.

      Love Sue

  31. Howdy I am so grateful I found your website, I really found you by mistake,
    while I was browsing on Askjeeve for something else, Nonetheless I
    am here now and would just like to say many thanks for a tremendous post and a all
    round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I
    don’t have time to read it all at the minute but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I
    will be back to read a lot more, Please do keep up the fantastic work.

    • Wow – you’re awesome – thank you for reminding me that I’m still touching lives out there as sometimes even I get fearful……and yes, I know all of the techniques and knowledge but I’m also human too. In fact, as I write this, I’m going through a massive life challenge that I never, ever thought I would have to go through – the challenge of losing everything I love – in otherwords, my ego’s attachments, and yeah, it’s scary, really scary, really really scary. It would be easier just to curl up under a duna and wish my life away….but despite the chills down my spine, the nausea, the lump in my throat…..and just like so many past experiences – I know without a doubt – that the moment I feel like I’m about to die, I’ll give up (ie the struggle of trying to keep all of the piece’s together (which is ego)) and I’ll surrender to whatever Higher Power there is….as all that would be left to do is TRUST. Trust that it will all work out, trust that there is something else better after this awful challenge Huh, it’s funny why we can’t just hand it over from the start, but that is not how we are programmed. No matter how much we know we need to do, the ego will fight to the end as it’s designed to protect us from harm. The only way I know that is a sustainable way of getting through these traumatic periods in life is through daily meditation and prayer……as helps you to gain clarity about the higher order of things and keeps you connected to your Higher Self – in otherwords, the level where miracles occur.
      So thank you for the opportunity to respond to your comment. Blessings Sue XX

  32. Hey! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow
    you if that would be ok. I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to
    new posts.

  33. Marco Spinola says:

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
