Ego Work Case Study

“And I swear, the thing that’s allowing me to stand in the middle of all this intense deadline-oriented fire, is my work with Cindy.

Because my old persona would have been freaking out, and getting sick, and not being able to sleep because of the intensity of it all…”

Listen to the wisdom of Danae on the idea of separation, the difference between mere mental knowledge (acquired and shelved from other spiritual teachings) and the direct experience of knowing, which never leaves, and what life is like after doing the inner ego work…

“And I swear, the thing that’s allowing me to stand in the middle of all this intense deadline-oriented fire, is my work with Cindy.

Because my old persona would have been freaking out, and getting sick, and not being able to sleep because of the intensity of it all…

For the most part it’s put me in equanimity. “Yeah, there’s a lot going on.”

“She imparted to me the tools that became sense-oriented, like aside from Coming To Your Senses, the experience of what she imparted to me, the living experience of it, has stayed with me. And it’s just dynamically shifted where I’m living life from.

D: “That’s a practice. It’s definitely a practice for me to stay oriented that way. But I feel like she did a great job of getting me in that zone, and I seem to continue to just want to live there. Because it’s safe. To me it feels safer because it’s real.

K: Can you say a little more about that….

D: Right. I mean you just said it so brilliantly, and I feel like the idea of separation causes the feeling of separation. And that is where I was prior to working with Cindy.

Now the idea of separation is a fleeting thought that goes rolling by that doesn’t take.

It’s a non-thing. It’s just a word that goes fleeting by, and has no place to stick anymore. So that my living, personally and professionally, is–that’s where words fail–I want to say, ‘inclusive,’ but there isn’t anyone or anything outside the experience of myself, so inclusive points toward separation.

I feel nested in my skin, and therefore safe.

And I don’t believe ‘I’ exist ‘in’ my skin, it’s just a way to describe the experience. Yeah.”

“My being willing to give myself permission to step out–as an author, a new website, you know keynote speaker, stepping out on a world stage more, because I’m focusing on that–that my ability to that is because the work with Cindy is continuing to come along with me.

Like sometimes you go to a workshop, or you work with a teacher and then it was nice for the moment and then you forget about it. You don’t digest it and integrate it. Doesn’t become part of you. It’s mental knowledge, and then it stays in the past.

But the work with Cindy is, it’s an embodiment of the truth of that which I am, and therefore it comes with me, I come with me, that knowledge, that direct experiencing comes with me wherever I go.

So you know, simply said, it’s like the work with Cindy is the gift that just keeps on giving.

Right?

…So it’s like nothing is being done to me, nothing is happening outside of me, no one is going to come get me.

K: It’s a whole different world.

D: Yeah, it’s a whole new world…”

“So I was a real supporter of all that. Teaching people to channel. And now it’s like, ‘none of that is real.’ Okay…

…It brings me back to Pre-Cindy–the metaphysical gymnastics and the mystical and the new age; Post-Cindy–the simplicity of ‘what feels like love?’

What feels like love to you, right now in this moment? Instead of spinning out mentally, and getting on your case, and analyzing what’s going on, or thinking you have to channel guides, right now in this moment, as love, what does love say to you right here, right now?

Instead of your anguish, or your anxiety, or your questions. Or wanting ‘me’ to ‘channel’ for you, if love was here, what would love say.

And, they have answers! It’s like creating a different space, so all the gymnastics are left out of it, and it’s pure and simple.

…and people are having amazing experiences. Their lives are changing before my eyes.

And that happened before Cindy too, but the flavor of it is very normal, very natural. It’s a different orientation. A flavor.

There’s more of a naturalness to it.

…And I’m in a different place, so I’m sitting in a field of energy that is–I mean, I don’t have to say anything.

Right?

I just show up and I’m just there, in this state of presence, here. And that creates an invitation unspoken. Because people feel it.

Everywhere I go now, people are responding to me, ‘you’re so, you’re just so genuine and authentic and grounded and crystal clear and I can just sit by you and listen to you for hours’ and I’m getting that feedback consistently. And I’m not doing anything.

I’m not doing anything and I’m not trying to be anything for anybody else, I’m just rested within myself, enjoying the moment.”


Here’s Danae on Facebook profile. Here’s details on the Edging Out the Ego program with Cindy.

 

“Ego is a thought of being a separate, enduring entity. No thought is a sentient entity. No thought endures. It is just a broken record.” ~ Cindy Teevens
