Awakening to the possibility that within me is the blueprint to healing whatever ails me revolutionized my approach. Now how to access that vast resource. I must say that was my initial interest in the inner child.
If that is the door way to accessing more knowledge than all the libraries in the world combined, how do I get there.
There are many people who have lots of exercises on healing the inner child, there is SITH Ho'oponopono, and there are many spiritual exercises that create repetitive exercises (like chanting, meditation, Ghandi spun wool) that build trust and inner communion. For me it is key to become more awake to that is what I am pursuing.
When a block appears to remind myself that may be a call to build inner trust.
The last trip to Mexico still remains almost mystical. To be hit over the head with my inner child was not on board with my healing if I continued with bulldozing my way to get through this. The self sabotage I experienced just getting on the plane was was in my face.
I love this example about chanting. Fill the mind with repetitive words, engage it until you can hear "SPIRIT" which is heard by the inner child. Artists do the same thing. There are moments available where our mental body has surrendered to our creativity where we lose concept of space and time. That can be true of dancing, sports, cooking, beading, at of any kind, etc. Did you know if you are out in nature all self talk ends after 20 minutes?
Practicing our art long enough, with repetition, allows the trust to build until the mental body surrenders to the inner child and allows it to take over. That is where we can experience our bliss.
Sadly we are not taught the mechanism of surrender.
For me surrender was life threatening as a child. With all the trauma entangled in that process, I sometimes have an automatic response of a panic attack to the at of surrender. When I can consciously be present to that is how I am hot wired, I can rewrite that conversation or begin to. This trip to Mexico filled me with several examples of how safe and easy it can be if I commune wit my inner team.
I am struck with the importance of engaging in some fun visualizations where I unite my inner child, mental mind and call in my High Self (which holds the blueprint to my way out or up). Doing this as I begin every day is allowing me to move through some of my greatest challenges with a sense of empowerment and possibility.
I know I have drawn in my life experiences to bring me to these awareness-es so I can give this round all that I have, and to do a good job for myself and Creator. To experience a place to rest in these troubling times of our own creation. Easy sailing to heal our inner divide, to heal our world and our planet.
For me I long and yearn to free myself from this intense inner struggle for survival and live my spirit driven life.
