Designated Miracle Maker™. Part 9: The Miracle Maker tunes out the incessant chatter of the ego

Becoming a Designated Miracle Maker™ is as easy as remembering and living the affirmation, God and I are One™. If you understand and practice the steps in this series of posts, you might just be a miracle maker.

Choose God over the ego

The miracle maker “chooses” to tune out the incessant and mindless chatter of the ego. Better yet, she “knows” how to tune it out. This state of knowing naturally flows from being able to “recognize” the difference between the babbling of the ego and the holy word of God. This may sound easy, but never underestimate the power of the ego to get its booming voice heard.

By now, we understand the ego is highly skilled at voicing its opinion that the body is separate from God and other bodies. Fortunately, the miracle maker is skilled at shifting her attention from the ego’s voice to the voice of God. The process of shifting attention involves three key steps: (1) Know when the ego is speaking; (2) Tune out the ego when you hear it; and (3) Tune exclusively into the voice of God.

Step 1: Know when the ego is speaking

Knowing when the ego is speaking is easy if you understand the ego’s language. Simply stated–The ego speaks what God does not. This definition sounds strange at first, but it makes perfect sense. God speaks one, universal language founded on love. From love flows peace, joy, and spiritual intimacy with everyone and everything. The ego speaks the opposite of love.

God speaks to us through the loving, peaceful, and joyous feelings we experience. These complex and varying feelings make up God’s primary language. Words are far too limited for God to rely on exclusively when speaking to us. Both words and feelings are forms of vibration. Yet, the vibratory force of feelings are significantly more powerful than words.

As mentioned, it is easy to know when God is speaking versus the ego. Examine how you feel after every thought you have. Does the thought bring you peace? Then, you are hearing the voice of God. Does the thought arouse fear (regardless of whether you call it fear, anger, angst, defensiveness, withdrawal, etc.)? Then you are listening to the ego.

It is certainly possible for God to use words when speaking to us. For example, we have all experienced a time when a question popped into our mind, and in the next moment the answer is delivered through something we read or the lyric of song we hear. But, when it comes to meaningless words, nobody speaks them like the ego can. Words, in and of themselves, are limited symbols. Since the ego only knows limitation, words are quite natural to the ego.

Step 2: Tune out the ego

We first must acknowledge that for as long as we shall live, the ego will incessantly chirp in our ears. Rather than trying to plug our ears to the ego’s raucous voice, it is easier to acknowledge and then ignore it. For example, assume that you encounter a person who you feel is causing you some concern. As you process what you see and decide how to respond, a voice will speak to you (perhaps in the form of a thought or idea that pops into your head).

One possibility is the voice, thought, or idea encourages you to see the person in a light of love and forgiveness. Accordingly, you feel the warmth of the person’s presence rather than the coldness of his behavior. The feeling of forgiveness is, most certainly, the voice of God. If, on the other hand, you experience unloving thoughts and then act in an unloving way, you are responding to the ego.

Tuning out the ego does not mean you accept or condone what the other person is doing. This is especially true if the behavior is physically, verbally, or emotionally hurtful. If this occurs, appropriate action can be taken. But, we do it with a sense of love and forgiveness in our hearts. The way we chose to feel when dealing with this person tells us the voice to which we are listening.

Step 3: Tune into the voice of God

We always have a choice when it comes to the feelings we experience. Tuning into the voice of God also means that we can actually decide our reactions long before the need arises. We accomplish this by turning our thoughts and behaviors over to God on a daily basis. By affirming that God and I are One™, and placing lives in the hands of a higher power, we automatically know that we will respond appropriately and with love in our hearts.

No matter how adept you are in hearing God’s voice, remember that the ego will continue to rudely barge in on the conversation. This does not mean that you have to allow any negative feelings or emotions to take over. If they do, however, simply nudge your attention back to love, peace, and joy, and God’s voice will once again reign supreme.

If you can hear the difference between the ego’s voice and the voice of God, you might just be a Designated Miracle Maker™.
