An Egoic Explosion an Ego Pathology. Egoic explosion is a temporary or permanent collapse of the Bodily Ego, usually occurring as the result of a temporarily enhanced Connection to Consciousness. Ego Explosion occurs when the "oxygen" of consciousness fills the "room" of the Physical Unit in a quality or quantity for which the Bodily Ego is not prepared.
Ego explosion occurs when an unprepared individual makes (intentional or unintentional) contact with The Fabric of Consciousness. When a Connection is made, the fire of Consciousness lights up the room. If sparks from that fire contact the combustible detritus of toxic life experiences (i.e. ideology, fear, misconception, guilt, and shame), an ego explosion can result. The ego explosion can be minor and leave you slightly frazzled, or it can be massive and leave your bodily ego totally destroyed (e.g. schizophrenia).
Damage to the bodily ego arising from toxic life experiences increases the likelihood of experiencing ego explosion.
Ego explosions may be traumatic and require professional spiritual assistance.
Egoic explosion may result in one or more of the following:
- Confusion, disorientation, acute emotional/psychological trauma which may lead to Post Traumatic Consciousness Disorder
- Egoic Bloating = Pathological "expansion" of Bodily Ego (e.g. inflated ego/spiritual arrogance)
- Egoic Deflation - Deflation and diminishment of Bodily Ego (e.g. damage/destruction of self-esteem/self-worth)
- Egoic Collapse - Distortion and or dissolution (i.e. Schizophrenia) of Bodily Ego
