How to discern between messages coming from my ego vs. from my soul?

Updated: Aug 17, 2023

Every spiritual seeker frequently questions whether the messages, dreams, visions, seeming synchronicities, etc. they get are actually from their soul or spiritual guides or are simply the product of their mind and ego.

How to tell which messages come from his soul or from his mind is one of the biggest obstacles a spiritual seeker faces on his or her spiritual path. Religions and ancient spiritual traditions had a variety of responses to them, and in the paragraphs that follow, I'll share with you my own experience when I ran into the same problem.

Discern Messages from Ego vs. from your Soul

Factors that affect the message's source

There is no simple way to distinguish between the different message sources, but according to my spiritual and practice the following characteristics distinguish a truly advanced seeker from the typical spiritual novice who believes that the majority of the messages he feels or receives are coming from his soul or another higher power:

1. How much spiritual practice the spiritual seeker has

2. How many limiting beliefs he released from his subconscious mind until that point,

3. How adept he is at shifting his consciousness from his mind into his heart in order to connect with his soul.

4. If he is able to confirm and calibrate with genuine higher souls.

5. How sensitive he grew to energies via practice and leading to spiritual discernment.

6. How humble he is

If a spiritual seeker is advanced in all of the aforementioned areas, he or she will also likely have a soul with at least a 4.0 vibration (the level of awareness on the chakra scale) and a body with a vibration of at least 4.0, as opposed to the 3.5 vibration that the average person has for both their soul and body on the chakra scale.

The degree of awareness affects a person's capacity for spiritual discernment

Anyone will have a stronger ability to distinguish between body/ego feelings and messages from their soul if they have a higher vibration level (actually awareness/consciousness level) for both their soul and body. Therefore, a properly developed spiritual will be able to tell whether a message is coming from his ego or soul with an accuracy of over 70%.

Another thing I want to emphasize is that, as long as it doesn't get overinflated, having a modest amount of ego is acceptable and even required on this planet and level of 3D people. When someone claims that one should entirely let go of their ego, it is foolishness and indicates that they have little to no understanding of spirituality and the workings of energy in Creation. How else can a seeker maintain some personal space in order to be able to make decisions and advance if they lack the skills to be forceful, for example?

Method for determining the answer between your ego and your soul

There is no specific trick or hack that the armchair spiritual can use to distinguish between the two. There is theory and there is practice; we should not get lost in spiritual theories and ignore practice if we wish to truly develop on our spiritual Path.

You find below a tried and tested method I used successfully and with many other spirituals. The method involves a preparation phase and the main part. All of the preparation before asking the question is intended to open a safe and clean conduit between your mind and your soul, or even to your parent-soul or spiritual guides, who have much greater understanding than we do.

As a general rule of thumb, if you want to get the answer to certain life-changing concerns, I recommend the following method:


1. Begin with breathwork

2. Go into your heart

3. Do a short meditation to raise your body vibration and separate yourself from the lower frequency surrounding you.

4. Use other awareness growth strategies in your practice if you feel the need for them. They can include sacred music, sacred dancing, asanas, and so on.

Main part

3. With your eyes closed, ask your inquiry when you feel peaceful, at peace, and balanced inside. It must be a question to which you do not already have an answer, such as "Should I marry this person?" or "Should I accept this job offer?" and not something commonplace, such as "Should I go fix my car?"

4. The Answer that appears in less than 2-3 seconds is the one you were looking for. If it takes longer, it is possible that your mind had time to manufacture an answer based on your beliefs and offered it to you. Actually, in normal circumstances, the answer from your soul arrives at the instant you formulate the question in your mind!


Furthermore, to improve accuracy, I advise to undertake numerous calibration sessions before asking key questions, where I recommend inviting someone you trust to assist you so you have an external independent reference.

Remember, the higher spiritually evolved you are both as soul and body the more accurate the answers. Besides soul progress, improving body vibration will facilitate a lot the accuracy of the answers you seek.
