Ego Blueprint Part 2: Origin
Like any story, it helps to relate to the characters involved. Today you’re going to pick up your ego blueprint and deepen your understanding of it by creating a biography, a character study. Each part was born in a moment in time; today we’re going to explore those moments.
With your character profile of each internal part emerging, reflect back to your earliest memory of the presence of this voice. Ideally, your memories are prior to the age of 13. So if you can only think about something that happened after that age, spend another few minutes reflecting whether there was an earlier time you felt this way. Each part of you was literally born in a moment. Something happened and so you reacted by making a judgment about yourself and/or the world, thereby creating each particular ego part, such as mine:
Now you fill in the last two rows with the story: one sentence about what happened, what you decided, at what age:
Congratulations! You now have more self-awareness than most humans that have ever lived! You have created a new understanding of yourself, one that puts you in the driver’s seat. The world didn’t just happen to you. You didn’t just turn out the way you did without cause. You are who you are because of the decisions you made about events in your life, even if those decisions occurred unconsciously or in childhood. And this is the key to your power. Claiming responsibility for what is so in your life and the decisions you made, gives you the power to change what is. Without taking responsibility, you can’t change anything.
This is huge! Claim it! Great work! Tomorrow, we’re going to dive in more deeply to understand the impact each part has in your life and then you'll be able to claim even more power to create.
