The job of the ego is to protect you. One of the ways it does this be using the power of language. The minute you identify with something, your ego attaches to it and holds on for dear life. If we attach ourselves to beliefs or points of view which are harmful or damaging, ten we run the risk that we won’t part with these beliefs.
Instead, practice daily positive mantras. This helps to keep the mind and ego calm and relaxed. For example:
” I am enough” ” I have enough” ” I am loved” ” I love myself” ” I am Safe” ” I belong”.

You are one mind, one body, one holistic system. Your body exists in the present moment, providing you with stability and sanity.
Think with your heart
To think with your heart, try this excersice. Write down on a piece of paper or in your journal, how you feel about a problem that you may be facing. Close your eyes. Breathe slowly in and slowly out until you feel calm and relaxed. Now ask yourself the question. You will feel the answer reveal itself to you, from the heart.
Your conscious mind
Your conscious mind makes sense of the present moment by relying on memories and experience. This makes it hard to create a new future if you don’t have access to new information that you need. On the other hand, your heart and your gut instinct guide you to the best decision, as they support your best self. They do not doubt.
