Affirmations For Living, 07/02/2013
Do we need ego if we are expanding spiritually ? where does it fit in, or does it? We can sometimes face obstacles as we traverse our spiritual path - our ego, if not balanced can really block us. Telling us everything from "you're not worthy" to "there is nothing wrong with you". But, if you are to have true mastership of God-self then yes ego must be balanced. Today my guest are a husband and wife team Rev. Dr. Linda Martin and Dr. Nick Martin authors of "Ego and Spirituality: The Consciousness of Egospiritualism" share their message that we must transform and heal our ego - not dissolve, disown, or defeat it - in order to merge our humanity and divinity.
Rev. Dr. Linda M. Martin is a metaphysician, certified as a reiki master teacher, spiritual healer, color & sound practitioner, registered spiritual counselor, and spiritual medium. She founded The Dove of Light Healing Ministry in Belle Vernon, PA, where she offers individual healing and counseling sessions in person or by phone as well as spiritual workshops.
