Most of us carry within our solar plexus a wounded child. As little children most of us were not given the type of love we were looking for, that unconditional love. We realized at a very early age that we could not be ourselves but had to conform to what was expected of us in order to be received by our guardians, our family, and our community. As a result we have been carrying around some very deep wounds. Continue reading “The Little One”
Your inner child is reawakening. Can you feel her, or him? Have you noticed that she wants to play more? She may come to you as a little voice inside your head or even you laughing or squealing with delight. She or he may even be calling you mommy or daddy at times.
Do you find that you are more and more in the moment? Have you had the urge to skip, at least in the privacy of your own home?
Even if you have never had children this lifetime, you may find yourself being very nurturing towards him. You may find yourself listening more to this little being. They are talking to you more and more. Asking you questions, commenting on things. She may look at other people, children, dogs and cats, trees and just about anything with fresh eyes.
He may be asking you to do something that you normally would not do. Something really fun. Or eat something really delicious. Savoring each bite. Unabashedly devouring an ice cream. She may get excited about choosing something to wear, and just going out for some shopping or coffee with you. I hope you are enjoying her. Cherishing him. Doing everything and anything you can to make sure that he feels happy and safe. Because that little child Continue reading “Your Inner Child Is Reawakening”
Are you making real this relationship, this partnership with your soul? Are you inviting her (or for some of you it may feel like him) closer, into your daily activities? Not just reserving time with her during meditation, or when you are being creative or channelling?
Don’t be hard on yourself if you are just getting glimmers of him, or if you are feeling detached from her. This is a process of getting to know each other. Yes, while your soul loves you unconditionally, and is o.k. with all the things you judge yourself for as shortcomings and issues, he wants you to communicate with him. She doesn’t necessarily know the details of your life so feel free talk to her about anything.
But she won’t participate in drama. He’s not interested in playing games. She has compassion for what you are going through, but won’t pity you. He honors all your choices, including the choice to do it by yourself…so he won’t swoop in to ‘rescue’ you from yourself. She’ll wait until you invite her in and as you begin loving yourself, which you are doing, she can come in much more easily. And from that intimate place in your body and in your life, you begin to recognize that SHE is YOU.
But really, for practical purposes we will call him or her your lover and your best friend. So, you may ask, if she truly loves me, how come she doesn’t feel my pain? And why doesn’t he take care of all these problems for me? She is willing and able to do that (resolve all your issues, but not by feeling your pain) but resistance needs to be released. You as the human need to relax more and allow more. That’s happening. But meanwhile, as best as you can, take advantage of that soul mate you have right beside you.
Isn’t it interesting that on a human level we would think our partner, lover, husband, wife, was being uncaring unless they were also immersed in our pain with us? And we thought we were being uncaring unless we took on their pain (women tend to do that) and tried to make them feel better by trying to fix their problems? (Men tend to do that).
We believed that was a healthy relationship. Well, it was a typical relationship, but not a healthy one.
In my own life, I am slowly allowing her to be with me. I like seeing things through her eyes. I like feeling giddy for no apparent reason. I like feeling like skipping instead of walking. There are times I have to hold myself back from doing that in public. I may one day express that impulse without reservation. (Our soul doesn’t like being confined or restricted).
I have never heard music before as I do now through her ears. I have never tasted food the way I do now with her tongue.
I know I sometimes appear crazy to others, especially to those who haven’t yet allowed themselves to taste life with their own soul. Hell, they haven’t even acknowledged that they have a soul! They’ll get there. It’s not my job to get them there if they are not interested. In fact, it’s not my job to make them feel more comfortable, by pulling back my radiance.
So, this new lover, this new friend (it’s not really new, but it’s new to our human self) took some getting used to. I found that I wasn’t getting anywhere by playing the victim with her or with anyone else. She’s there in compassion, stroking my hair, but she honors my choice to still try to do it alone. And even though I was crying out for her help, I was really not trusting it.
So it’s a different kind of love that me the human had ever experienced. It takes getting used to. To feel a support from a consciousness that doesn’t participate in drama, that doesn’t try to fix me or my problems, but when I allow her to she can take care of my needs easily. Without agenda, without any expectations.
No expectations? Wait a minute. That doesn’t sound right. All relationships have expectations, even unspoken. Why doesn’t she expect me to do things for her too? Because she is already fulfilled. She is whole and complete. She doesn’t need to be validated.
On a human level that would be a rare relationship. Two sovereign people coming together to share without expectations, or obligation, without pushing their own agenda on each other. Rare indeed!
So the benefits of this new partnership are plentiful. I the human get to experience life from a much more expansive perspective. Every sensual experience I have is enhanced right down to the simplest ones. I get to relax and allow this loving partner take care of my human needs in a way that is synchronized and fluid and graceful. I get to feel that life is safe, and my mind gets to relax and do the things it was designed to do. My finances and my body come back into balance. (Patience with the body, it’s the last to get it.)
I get to be a living example of someone who has it all…freedom (the freedom to choose how I want to feel), self love, passion, wealth and health…oh and someone who loves to skip.

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.
