The ego is usually programmed to want things from the place of the wound and is usually built as a coping mechanism. When unchecked, it’s desires come from trauma, and your soul always desires to heal the split, and become whole again.
Yet at the same time the ego will repress, reject, deny and disown whatever parts of you that made it “not okay” or not safe to be who you truly are.
So you stop being who you truly are, and start being a split part of yourself, always unknowingly searching to fill the void from parts of yourself that were once abused, disowned or rejected.
Whatever feelings, experiences, truths and desires that were deemed “unsafe” to exist, have been buried and forgotten inside yourself.
The thing is, the Universe works through oneness, so the wounds keep coming up until we integrate the wisdom, the bigger truth and GIFT as we unite with our shadow.
That’s why these disowned fragments of ourselves are the traumas that keep coming back to haunt us, unknowingly sabotaging the things our soul really wants, until we unify them.
