Intuition and Ego

Category:  Ask Deepak

Question:

How do you tell the difference between what your intuition is telling you vs. what your ego is telling you? Sometimes I wonder whether what I think is my 'gut feel' is really the ego in disguise... Thanks so much


Response:

Messages from the ego are driven by self-interest. When intuition is pure, it is not motivated by self-preservation or fear. That means that unselfish intuition feels different in your body – it feels open, light and relaxed, not constricted.

Love,
Deepak

It`s really comforting to know that great support is at my fingertips.I recently wrote a book of 10 poems and just wanted your honest opinion; it`s my first book.I can send it to you If you like.Also, I am a recent medical graduate and will be sitting my usmle is a couple weeks.I am at the cross roads of trying to decide which way to go in my post graduate training.I am convinced mind body medicine is the answer and best for my patients.I`m an International Medical Graduate and would like to receive your guidance on my postgraduate options for pursuing this pathwhere .

  • Good answer; BUT - what if you have the gift of foresight, and it is tied to your Ego? Then, that gut-feeling could be your Ego, forewarning you of an obstacle/puzzle/challenge on your Path, ahead of you. Namaste!

  • The ego can hide itself. "I always share, I always help others without expecting anything back in return. I seem to be the most unselfish person in the world." Is "unselfish" the right criteria? Get into a state of no-mind and intuition will guide you.

  • When it is my intuition, I have no doubts, I just seem to "know". I`ve found my ego will leave me uncertain, questioning and I will feel almost nauseous.

    Mammamia63 // 2013-02-13 12:07:12 // //
  • I had no idea. I should have known the difference between intuition and ego because I`ve heard you so often on Oprah. Have also heard Oprah talk about ego and intuition over and over. I might have been a little bit afraid of the word "ego" because it`s not a complimentary term. It`s like you think you`re Mr. Big Stuff all the time. As you said it`s selfish.

  • Of the times I have ignored 'my' intuition there has been glitches that have engendered the ruing of is a gift. I have been accused of "putting hexes on people" because I have seen the outcome of the wrong choices and have tried to give some the heads up before they trip up. When you get a spiritual prompt but cannot explain it to others you have faith to guide you. When you see a child born minus a brain who is shoved aside post delivery as doomed but lives and grows, even smiled. His life was not long but what a life and so many of us learned so much. I believe all of life is mind over matter. Trying to define each of the components of life is an exercise in futility because we have not achieved a collective state of higher consciousness to have proper insight. But we will get there..eventually!

    Joanna van der Drift // 2013-02-09 02:52:22 // //
  • Ego, like many words, has such a strong and misleading connotation attached to it by many. The ego is a gift and a tool of existence. Without a sense of self, where would one be? The ego can be overactive- claiming all benefit as its own and rejecting all detriment as outside influence. Or it can be efficiently active, realizing that all benefit and detriment are due to the universe, and that one IS the universe. Who does the supreme consciousness speak to, granting intuition, if not to the ego? If one identifies with the universe as the self, then self-interest is interest for all life.

  • Intuition in my body feels like an earth quake. Then what ever is supposed to happen happens and the feeling is gone. If I wait for the feeling to pass, then I feel that I avoided what ever it was that happened.

    Karen Butler // 2013-02-08 12:29:53 // //
  • Thats why you should really know yourself in and out. My intuition helps me protect me from harm, thats why I am really gratefull and take this things as a BLESSING.

  • Maybe the cosmic universe knows what this man is talking about because I sure don't. All I know is people are selfish & egotistical. The Bible tells us that to combat our complete love of self, we should love God and "love our neighbors as ourselves" -- put others first. Then ego will not rule.

  • Intuition is a deep knowing without any bais; any bias would be ego. If you're just objective and your intuition is telling you something then trust it.

    Steve Wein // 2013-02-08 10:51:43 // //
  • If you have tender hearted affection for someone and you're driven to express it, that is your "self-interest", but not the ego self; it's your truest, deepest, self. It is my souls desire to express love. I'm quick to notice the ego and be free of it.

  • If i hypothetically agree that ego is based on self interest while intuition is free from it, then just 1 question sir. How much does your intuition tells you to charge for your services/books for spirituality/holistic healing , when your ego wants you to get the maximum profit??? I m your fan of your enterprenial qualities and the ability to make others believe you.

  • Also Deepak, intuition comes in between the thoughts it is when the thought can not be traced back to anything, Like if you are doing a chore and thinking of the dirt in the carpet and here comes a thought to check the stove, just walk by the stove. That would be an intuition.

  • Baghavad Gita and Yogananda explained all this very clearly : the battle between King EGO and King SOUL

    Vashanarana Sonia van Overbeek // 2013-02-08 07:02:38 // //
  • At the level of appearances on this material plane, the human drama takes place. Here too, the soul's agenda is making itself known, not through Will but through Grace. The Ego/Will, driven by fear, is primed for flight or fight. In perpetual scarcity, it is only as good as its last performance, its reputation always on the line. Believing that existence is limited, the Ego knows it is ultimately doomed and going to die. It faces the firing squad on every breath, fearing it could be the last. The patient Soul however, knows eternity, and therefore knows this moment is but a drop in it. The Soul is not concerned with matters of appearance or control for it knows the truth of its purpose and it's ultimate destination. Unlike the Ego, the Soul is not at all concerned about how to get from here to there. To the Soul, there is only certainty of the outcome, as its agenda is to heal the illusion of separation and bring us back to a unified state of wholeness.

  • INTERNAL ONLY CHANGE AMENDING THE OUTSIDE. Saying that you will be happy joyous, healthy and prosperous when things change is the same as saying it will smile when her reflection in the mirror first start getting exultant, healthy and wealthy. When CHANGE your thoughts with INCLUSIONS vibrating with joy, health and abundance in ALL intimate image, you CHANGE your experience and being ATTRACTED by ATTRACTING ALL that is exultant, healthy and wealthy. There is only real power within you because God is in his INTERIOR 24 hours a day providing amorphous magnetic energy which gives you WAY ATTRACTIVE thinking about contentment health and wealth, you want to FIT EVERY scene in mental and physical.

  • If I have a feeling or nead or fear about it, it is the mind who is talking. If i am emthy inside, and have no feeling about it at all, it is my intuisjon. All thrue information ends with feelings or a tought. This is why allmost every human, will se only max 0,1%-1% of the message in it, what ever it is.

  • What if its to do with a decision concerning your own wellbeing or how a person is towards you? How can that not have a self preference because it puts yourself in the equation because the intuition is about how something is towards you yourself?

  • well actually Deep, since humanity has defined ego and unselfish intuition (unfortunately), there is no pure motivation and programming people to believe that is kinda like masterbating. No guy, this pitri dish is sullied by human faults, which are based on so many definitions, which constrain people to obey the past and seemingly it is worthless, every act, unless it was a world movement to elliminate the pretend game and just do the rational thing. Feed the world, equalize living standards, and liven up the world instead of sucking the tit of delusion. Also we must discuss who we are and who we want to become, er at least the rational people and those willing to follow the plans. Government is dead as is most religion, it aint moving forward and it has no evolution in it. Everything can be learned from but is it not better for people to have a real environment rather than what we have today? It is only good until yu have knowledge so kids are in heaven or should be and adults are wherever, yes very much to discuss amoung people who give a crap who are all on the spiritual side. Both negative and positive like the atom are there to listen to and understand.

  • Long ago I noticed ego inforfation was repetative and fast, like a gerbell wheel. Intuition on the other hand was a soft whisper with an image. It comes once and does not cycle over and over.

  • "... it feels open, light and relaxed, not constricted." To my way of thinking, my ego thrives on comfort, convenience, certainty, and control. Thus, I experience that intuitions include an element that challenges these.
