Ego Alchemy – Journey from the lead of Ego to the Gold of Soul
A handbook of spiritual psychology based on real life experiences.
This book shows (not tells) how to train the self-limiting ego and why it’s the best present you can give yourself.
If you apply many of the tips and tools (consistently and sincerely) it will make you more secure, confident, and lighter in your body. From this your whole health improves, you heal faster and age slower.
Sounds too good to be true? It is not. It’s based on the author’s own experience over 15 years of studying, practising and applying spiritual tools – now told through frank personal recounts, real life dialogues, timeless wisdoms, and short easy mind exercises that look simple but do work.
This is practical spiritual psychology. You don’t need to have faith or believe, but can prove for yourself by trying it out. Through your own direct experience you can validate it in your everyday life. In this book you discover:
• The real difference between soul and ego.
• How ego is the same in all of us and robs us of our uniqueness.
• How Soul is not simply a vague and abstract concept.
• How to train and mentor your ego so it complies with your ‘big picture’ goals.
• How to tap into your soul (higher self) and why it’s priceless.
• If you intend to explore spiritual truths, how to be discerning.
With curiosity and passion, I (the author) leverage my conscientious nature, a journalism degree, and a technical writing background to ‘look under the hood’ of the human psyche with the fresh perspective of an outsider looking in – without the filters of an industry expert. It’s a blueprint for fearless living and personal alchemy – spiritual wisdom tested and proven in action.
