When you reach a place inwardly where you seemingly feel as if you have been ‘taken over" and “possessed" by the voice in your head, you've identified with the egoic mind and thoughts in your head taking ownership of them.
This is very dangerous because the origin of the many thoughts we have can come from numerous places:
1. past experiences;
2. previous conditioning;
3. people's opinions;
4. past interactions;
5. responses to dormant inner imagery;
6. God's Spirit; and most dangerously
Therefore giving yourself over completely to the many thoughts circulating or passing through your mind can be very harmful and detrimental to your well-being. In the worst case scenario demons prey upon the hurts and wounds within us, while further accusing and demeaning us after having gotten us to identify with their destructive words.
Eckhart Tolle in his insightful book A New Earth says, “When you feel the pain-body, don't fall into the error of thinking there is something wrong with you. Making yourself into a problem" (p. 184).
Combining my worldwide spiritual experience dealing with the demonic and some insights taken from Tolle, I recommend these 7 steps for self-mastery to sustain ongoing personal freedom.
1. Know who you are and who you are not. Remember you are not your thoughts and emotions. You are created in the image of your Creator, being within formless and made in the likeness of the divine. Therefore don't confine or narrowly define yourself based on your doing, the roles you perform, or minuscule opinions of others. Simply be and dwell happily.
2. Inwardly accept what is going on around you for a moment before trying to deal with and change it. By doing so you will become more intuitive and aware of what is truly occurring both within you and externally around you.
3. Feel the inner vibrations and emotions. Perhaps you feel peace or calm. Other times you may sense agitation, irritation, anger, frustration, hostility, rage, disappointment, hurt, regret, guilt, shame, and a host of other emotions. Freely allow yourself to feel these within while not identifying with them, thereby creating some space between your feelings and you.
4. Be present to your inner state and natural surroundings. Choose not to focus or fixate on the past or future. Often in the past there is pain, regret, and remorse. In the future frequently there is fear of the unknown and anxiety. Be content to dwell happily in the present and give yourself fully to the moment. There empowerment, resourcefulness, and happiness is truly found. It is here you can freely be and mightily abound.
5. Avoid identifying with your thoughts and emotions. Let them flow freely without excessively internalizing them. Though they be internal within the hidden realm where no eye can see, you don't need to dwell upon them excessively. Neither should you panic and identify with them inwardly whereby you construct a false identity. Simply separate yourself from your thoughts and emotions.
Sometimes a trigger may awaken past pain you have experienced throughout your life. The trigger can come in the form of a word spoken or image revisited. Instead of hastily reacting, be still within, patiently possessing your soul, wherein you are whole. Freely evaluate and examine the image or words spoken without identifying and taking ownership of them.
6. Being still allow the true nature of God to emerge and speak to you as to your true personhood and authenticity. As you are still truth will accurately speak and eliminate the lies whereby a false sense of self is destructively erected. As you peacefully inwardly come to grips with your true self apart from the pain, inner confidence and assurance arises. Freedom from the struggle to secure and project your identity emerges, wherewith you are free to be rather than to prove and assert your identity.
Being is living. As you happily dwell in who you are as a being, the human and natural essence within will magnificently show itself swallowing up all other minuscule words and imagery that may seek to temporarily pop up and obscure the fullness of who you are.
7. Be still and connect with your Creator. As you identity with the Creator of heaven and earth, the vast beauty and glory of creation arises wherein you can appreciate your own uniqueness. As you maintain an inner posture of stillness, the vastness of God and who you are in Him emerges. Recognizing you too were formed by God in your mother's womb and your life has been sustained thus far, gives a great sense of peace and happiness.
Continue to live, move, and happily have your being in God your Creator.
