Channeling Positive Energy By Reconnecting With Your Inner Child
Nov 27, 2012 14:43
Remember what it was like to be a kid and feel so carefree? Those years might be gone now that you're an adult in the real world, but that doesn't mean you can't reconnect with your "inner child" self.
Reclaim your inner child's life force. Every grown up has an inner child. Both are distinct energetic aspects of our life force. For full vigor, each must be accounted for. Your inner child may need urging, but it wants to be embraced. (Having kids often naturally spurs this reconnecting process in parents who otherwise might never get there.) For starters, bring out your baby or childhood photos. Really look at them. The photos can rematerialize shelved energy. Next, with photo in hand, promise to honor that child's needs. For example, I promised mine: "You'll never have to smile for a camera again unless you want to" -- an expectation I despised when growing up. Recall ordeals you had to endure; vow no repeats. Also, begin to recognize when your inner child is in jeopardy. The tip offs? Perhaps you're laughing less, feeling overtired or overworked. Find activities your inner child loves. Explore what your inner child genuinely finds fun or funny. First, recall activities from your youth that made you smile. Miniature golf. Bugs Bunny. Elmer Fudd. The fast-forward chipmunk voice you get from inhaling a helium balloon. Memories can get rusty laughter synapses cranking. Second, see what sorts of fun your inner child responds to now. Peruse the newspaper's leisure section, ask friends what's funny, check out genres of comedy from standup to radio. Seek out people who laugh. We absorb funniness by osmosis. Hearty laughers spread those positive vibes to us. What counts most, though, is the energy behind the laugh, not just sound or facial expression. Take the Dalai Lama's infectious giggle, which comes from a place of love and wonder -- its healing energy goes straight to our hearts. The other extreme are people who have grins on their faces but whose laughter often stems from malice or psychic pain. So confusing. They're laughing, yet you're being slimed with negative vibes. There's no joy coming your way. Don't be fooled; trust your energetic assessment.
