I would like to share something regarding the ego, that happened during the Paul Selig Workshop, in Annapolis.
While we were waiting to go in to the class on the first evening, I became aware of a lot of fear, and it was all around me. When something like this happens to me, it usually means that someone close by is afraid. But this time, it was unusually strong.
When Paul began channeling, I realized that it was my ego self that was scared to death as to what was about to unfold. There was something, either in the tone of Paul’s voice as he began channeling, or the voice of the Guide, that impacted the ego and it seemed like it was going into shock. It scrunched down very low to the floor, and just stared at Paul, stunned into silent awe. It reminded me of one of those “bad” dogs on the Dog Whisperer, when they just stare at him because they have never experienced anything like it before.
The ego became very sad and upset, and asked me “Well, what now? Do I have to leave? Where will I go?” I then had a moment of pure love and empathy for the ego. Up until that point, I had believed that we had to defeat the ego, and push it out of our lives.
After the workshop was over, I asked my Spirit friends to help me find a way for the ego to stay. The next day they showed me an amazing revelation. Not only could the ego stay, but my Holy Self had now accepted the ego and would assist it in becoming holy as well. Then, my Divine Self, gently bent down and helped the ego up. By this time, the ego had scrunched himself down and was cowering in the right side of my body. He was terrified and quite despondent from the channeling the night before.
My Divine Self then caressed the ego’s back and suddenly wings appeared. It was so beautiful.
Throughout the weekend, I continued to received further information about the ego. The ego told me that he has long been misunderstood. He said his job was to defend me in the illusion against mean people, and generally anything that has offended me, and that I never acknowledged, or thanked him for that. He has been taking all of this shit for me, and trying in the best way he knows, to keep me comfortable and safe for the entirety of the illusion. He is getting the shit kicked out of him because I blame and fear him for everything. He said, yes, he has lashed out many times, but it was not to hurt me. He just wanted to show me how much crap he deals with, and it was really rude of me to ignore him all this time.
I now call him the Self, instead of the small, or ego self. This has played out in an amazing way the past few weeks. One day while at work, I was not in Holy or Divine Self mind. Not in a bad way, but I had just slipped out of it that day. All day at work, I was happy and patient and, for the first time, I was happy and patient while in ego self mode! To me, that means he is evolving at a very rapid pace, and soon he will also be divine.
Since I have been working with this for a few years, I know how difficult it is going back and forth with this. I now know that the ego part of you is waiting for and craving your acceptance, much like a puppy who has never experienced love before. I now gratefully acknowledge the ego for everything he has done for me, and love and welcome him on this journey.
After I wrote this, my ego self, who I will now call my Self, asked me to read it out loud to him. When I finished, he asked me to read it again, and then yet again. He was now beaming with pride and told me it was the proudest moment of his life. Looking at this story was like looking at his own college diploma, or something on that level of importance.
I will update this story as more unfolds.

When you are talking to Sparkle, miracles happen. Her erudite and profound way of getting to the bottom of what it is we are believing is second to none. I've watched as Sparkle listens to someone and finds a way of getting exactly to where that person needs to see from, just by being her wonderful and intuitive self. Her name fits her perfectly, this sparkling ray of light has blessed so many with her humorous musings, which hide profound trusts, all wrapped up in a giggle or three. Sparkle is simply love on legs. Time spent in the company of this gorgeous soul can only bring more joy into anyone's life.

The thing that differentiates you (Sally) from others, is that you do not go out to people with an agenda, but with unconditional love. I still cannot describe the state I was in when you visited Switzerland. I felt as if I were in a state of flow and blissful happiness. I want to learn from you how one can live like this every day.
