The ego, as well as our thoughts and emotions have their use and cannot be cutout or be removed – only their dominance over our perception can be altered. Although it often seems as if the ego functions like the 'anti-consciousness' it still has its purpose in securing our physical existence. From an energetic perspective, our lower chakra energies symbolize our human-ness - our weak spots, our passion but also our reactivity and emotional attachments. Therefore there is no point in wasting energy on judging ourselves for our 'lower' emotions. All that really matters is that we learn who to discern our perception, so that we can differentiate and integrate all emotions, feelings and sensations.
For many of us this differentiation is new. We regard having emotions as 'lower' and not spiritual, spiraling in our unsolvable conflict between body, mind and spirit. Read how active consciousness work can help us to catch up with all these subtle and not so subtle issues with reconciling our 'human-ness' with our higher vibrational spiritual goals.
