Enjoy my song, Forest Dance, while reading the post. The music helps ground the message.
This process of transformation from human to Divine human has taken its toll on us emotionally, mentally and physically. We may be feeling worn out and discouraged. Add to that the mundane, daily maintenance required of us just to be here in these bodies! Having to maintain our home, our car, the lawn, maybe you have a mate, children, a pet that requires attention. And, god forbid, a ‘job’.
All of that can literally extract the joy right out of us! We hear about the joy that awaits us, in the higher dimension, yet it feels elusive.
Yet, it’s joy and playfulness that will bring us into the new energy and reunite us with our soul self. It’s allowing ourselves to become that child again, where you believe everything is possible. Picasso said that it took him a lifetime to paint like a child. He had to go through the ‘serious’ training, embracing all the protocol, all the rules, before he decided to throw them all out!
And that is what we have been doing. We went through the conventional ways of learning and strove to fit into a left brain world, untill we finally said, enough! We sensed there was another way, a more joyful way, to create our reality.
Now, you can be playful even as you are creating a painting with dark colors, a brooding landscape. Remember as a child you pretended you were a pirate, a ‘bad guy?’. Wasn’t it fun? As a musician I have created some rather sad songs, that evoke tears. But its all from a place of honoring our feelings and expressing them.
But, more and more we prefer the lighter feelings. So the colors of our life canvas are becoming predominantly more pure and bright.
To be more playful requires us to be more in the moment. It may look abnormal to other people. It requires a kind of easiness and freedom. So much happening to us now is pushing us to be in the now moment. To be in our bodies. Why is that? Because that is where home is, at least for now. For our Soul to reside within us, we need to be home. Not somewhere else. Worry and anxiety are a mental energy that is focused on the past or the future. And our soul is not interested in worry or anxiety. Our Soul is whole and complete and just wants to savor life in a human body. Our Soul, like a child, wants to experience the sensual nature of life on the planet. Our Soul has the ability to create with ease. Our Soul knows how to heal our body, and how to create wealth, if that is what we desire. But our soul needs a physical vehicle that is present, that is grounded here, to do that. It needs a trusting human. A human who isn’t trying to do it all by themselves.
The lack of trust and anxiety may have its origin long ago, but it’s not necessary to try to figure it out. All that is necessary is to invite in our Soul, into our bodies and our life, just as it is, and then all that stuff just clears up. You begin to focus more and more on, how can I have FUN today?
YOU HAVE TO BE SELFISH
If you want to feel your soul, and to rekindle passion and health and abundance, you have to be selfish. (See my post, Get Selfish And Stay There). You have to show yourself that you are serious about your enlightenment, that is, serious enough to be playful. You have to demonstrate to yourself that you are loving you on a daily basis. That you deserve your hearts’ desires.
Take that walk in nature. Sit by a big tree. Feel its roots. Feel yourself as that tree. Strong, deeply rooted in the earth, able to withstand storms, wind, snow, rain, and always in the right season, yielding new leaves. You are now being nourished by the rain, soil, and sun of your Higher Self. You have been like the tree, going through your iterations.
Your leaves are about to sprout new leaves. They have been dormant for a while, as you were in the winter of your soul.
Give yourself treats. Don’t be stingy with yourself. This is not the time to be holding back. Give to yourself with the understanding that energy is LIMITLESS. This will be challenging for many lightworkers, who have been taught that Tis Better To Give Than To Receive.. They will feel guilty. Shouldn’t they be out there healing the sick and saving the Planet?
And for those striving for that, how’s that working out? We have learned that we are of more benefit to our fellow man if we are in our own joy and balance. It’s all about self-love now, and a love that runs deep. A love that accepts all of you, physically, mentally, emotionally, accepts your past, your actions or inactions it’s a love that also understands that you can’t love yourself easily from your human perspective. So you invite in your Soul to balance the human love with unconditional love. It’s not done from the mind. It’s a trust and a surrender, and it’s initiating a playfulness that you may think you left in your childhood.
That magic, that playfulness is what will activate the long-lost love of you for you.
Maybe get a children’s book with playful images and saturate yourself with that energy, of magic and mystery. Nature herself is a magical kingdom, and small children are seen talking to the fairies and those beings in the other realms.
Give yourself permission to sing, to dance, to draw or paint. Just for yourself. For the fun of it. You came here at this time to break free of all the old limitations of this world of form, of duality and polarity. You played in that old world for eons, and now you say, enough! Now you want to create with more ease and you want more joyful experiences.
And it begins with the everyday you, and you don’t have to wait. You can start just where you are at. Just allow that child-like innocence to come forth more and give that child within priority. That child holds the key to the magic and to your connection to your Soul.
