Heal with play !

“The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter and the spirit heals with joy.”

It wasn’t until it started raining cats and dogs and it went completely dark outside that I realized my son had escaped my attention completely. Suddenly I was aware of the silence inside… No answer when I called him. I looked around in every room, he was nowhere to be found ! Strange, a few minutes ago he was still absorbed in his play…

But then I turned my head and looked outside. There he was in our garden, jumping joyfully up and down on his trampoline completely naked in the pouring rain !

The overprotecting mom in me immediately thought of getting him out of the rain as quickly as possible, but instead of spoiling the fun for him, I decided to observe him for a while.

I have to admit : his energy was contagious ! The whole spectacle made me smile from top to toe aswell.

It made me realize how freely, innocently and joyfully children move through life. It made me realize how often we, adults put an end to this spontaneity.

To what extent are we killers of dreams and are we guilty of destroying the creativity and curiosity of our children ? How many times do we tell them to stop imagining…

How long have you been hiding your own inner child ? How long have you neglected it, avoided it or refused to talk to it ?

What are your excuses for not bringing back some joy in your life ? It’s too late…I’m too old for this…what will the neighbours say ? I’m not supposed to do this, I’m a grown up now…Let’s be serious…

It is programming and conditionning from our childhood that determines so much of how we operate in life and unfortunately we unconsciously project our own restrictions on our children later in life. Because the child within you has been repressed, you will repress your children.

We haven’t healed our own inner child yet and still carry around our own childhood wounds and hurts. All this past pain has consumed our innocence and our ability to look at life with childlike wonder.

Look how easily children connect when they are playing. Look how easily we forget time when we are playing…Playfulness is in our nature ! Joy can nurture us back to life !

Be your naked self…

Are you contemplating your life right now ? Asking yourself several questions, wondering what course you have to take, overthinking a certain issue in your life…?

Have you been looking everywhere but still haven’t found the answer… ? You feel you are trapped in a vicious cycle…with no control over it whatsoever…

Do you feel lost ? You try to cope with life but you got completely stuck. You tried  different directions, all to no avail…

Do you ask yourself : “Will I ever get out of this ? Will I ever experience happiness ?”

Let us find out who you really are and strip off :

All the so called good advice that leaves you insecure and even more indecisive about what to do or what you really want. “Shall I listen to what they say or shall I have it my way ?”

That uncomfortable feeling the critics give you when they try to break you down, when they say it can’t be done.

The doom scenarios that are popping up in your head. “Maybe I should forget about all this”. “What if it’s too good to be true ?” “What if I really don’t amount that much….?” All these doubts and worries are bringing your moral probably back to ground zero.

The belittling you experienced as a child and the ugly comments you had to listen to when you told people your childhood dreams…

The feeling of being all alone…No one believes in you…even your family and your friends aren’t supportive. You feel you are the black sheep of the family…

You became a champion in giving into your fears, your sadness, your bad luck…!

Know that what others think of you doesn’t matter, only how you react to it matters !

Reacting to all these opinions with a negative emotion is accepting them for real, is agreeing with their opinion and that’s how you keep pushing away or resisting your own happiness !

What you feel to be real will eventually materialize in your world. Not the opinion of others….your opinion matters, your feelings matter, where you focus on matters !

Who are you to tell me something isn’t possible for me ? Only I can do that ! Only I can claim what I will become, only I have that power !

Your imaginary force is yours and yours only. The feelings of your heart are yours and yours only. Don’t give your power away to all this negativity ! Don’t give others the key to your happiness, success, or even your health !  Making you worry, doubt, fear while you yourself are master of your destiny !

Let all these heavy feelings such as resentment, guilt, hate, shame, jealousy,….go ! These feelings are just too heavy for your heart. These are the ones killing your passion !

These feelings are all reactions to an illusion, none of this is real !

When you lift up the burden from your heart, your soul will start speaking to you !

Rejoicing ! Finally you go back to source !

And then passion will pop up again ! Joy will pop up again !

Love will pop out of your heart again !

A little horsepower

“In the beginning was the word and the word was love and love was imagination. When love takes us through the sun-dappled garden of our imagination, no stalking horses can perturb the rainbow in our mind or fade out its bright colors reflecting in the blue sky of our memory.”

It was all a dream…

 

It was all a dream

An idea fueled with passion

and so many things

to feel excited about.

Too good to be true,

but too good to forget

a madman’s fantasy,

a far fetched reality.

But once shut down

the senses to this world

and silenced the riot in the body,

Once taken back the hijacked mind

that stole your desires away.

What you wanted to be without.

You saw within.

You became the creator.

And It was all imagination.

“I pursue this dream and carry on. I don’t dwell too much on the outside, I just focus on the inside.”

Conor McGregor

“Ideas only act if they are felt, if they awaken inner movement. Inner movement is conditionned by self motivation. Outer movement is conditionned by compulsion.”

Conor McGregor inspired me to write this little piece after he recently posted this beautiful video of his son’s christening party on Facebook. While many of you were focussing on his wealth and richness, all I saw was genuine happiness and a beautiful hashtag #itwasalladream.
