Embracing the inner child nowadays may seem like a bugbear. This might be due to the negative influence of the insane society we live in. Its rules and paradigms thrown upon us make us definitely live in a box. Then, immersed in a false belief that we are free, we think and act like everyone else. This reserved way of manipulation leaves us blind from what truly matters to us.
Embracing The Inner Child Is Not A Burden
Being more specific about this topic, I dare say that since childhood we are led to believe in a grim reality. Hence, family members pass their self-limiting beliefs and distorted views on to us. Also, TV and radio programs broadcast news which generate alienation and standardized behavior. As it turns out, ignorance and lack of knowledge spread like wildfire from one generation to another. Life, in turn, becomes a synonym of pain, trauma and restrictions. And the problems are the same as usual: financial and emotional distress. Unfortunately, we end up growing up in survival mode. This feeling takes control of our subconscious minds to such an extent that it controls our behavior, making it dependent only upon the external world.
This is where the mistake lies. Fostering this condition causes an obstruction of access to the inner child.
For those who have no idea of what it is, the inner child is something that matches perfectly with our souls. Like a breath of fresh air, it makes our hearts beat faster and gives us inspiration for life.
Therefore, embracing the inner child means indulging our passion for what we love doing. This intense feeling is the fire that burns inside of us and makes us feel alive. It can be playing a sport, writing, singing, dancing, drawing, acting, painting, performing humanitarian service, teaching, or whatever. One thing we must remember is that the passion we have is of primary importance only and exclusively to us. Thus, we are 100% responsible to sustain it, no matter the circumstances. Moreover, the inner child doesn’t wait or ask for the right moment or opportunity. On the contrary, it requires action and due attention. Taking that into account, the only thing anyone needs is determination to follow their heart.
The Inner Child Has So Much To Say
Unquestionably, once we provide open space for the inner child, the Universe conspires in our favor. Life becomes lighter and the creative process manifests itself more easily. In this case, we make ourselves available for the flow of Universal energy. Indeed, it is like opening a portal to a new dimension which had never existed before in our lives. Also, it’s important to stress that having no confrontation with the external world helps us be in tune with ourselves. This way, we set resistance aside which allows us to be genuine, spontaneous, free and confident. These attributes play their role in supporting us as well as constructively channeling our energies so that we can become a source of fresh ideas. Only by nurturing our souls with what we love will we be able to bring true abundance into our lives.
The Linking Between Abundance And Our True Selves
When it comes to abundance, the first thing that comes to mind is money and material possessions. There is no denying the fact that these things give us a comfortable life. But, do you have an idea of what “true abundance” means? This term is much more complex than we can imagine. It refers to the ideal arrangement of our psychological, emotional, spiritual and material states. In other words, there must be a correlation between these states for us to feel complete, otherwise we will always fight against emptiness in certain moments in our lives. Embracing the inner child provides us with a sense of fulfillment. It perfectly aligns us with our purpose which results in joy, peace of mind, communicative and interpersonal skills, cognitive performance, ability to use the imagination and self-control. These characteristics empower us more and more, guiding us towards the best version of ourselves.
Initially, we can just take some time out to do what we love. It is as simple as that, just for fun.
Let’s focus first on the pleasurable experience. In doing that, we are letting positive vibes overflow and radiate. This is nothing but the revival of our true selves. It’s like alchemy, purely magical. In case you intend to make a living out of your inner child like me, hold your horses! It might take some time for your dream to manifest and consolidate, but all you have to do is keep on living it, day in day out. Enjoy it as much as you can without worrying about the results. After all, your dream is constantly under construction, which means that you’re supposed to live it every single second. So, why not taking good care of the inner child as if it were a baby? In order to make it grow, there must be patience, dedication, love and support.
Why do we imprison ourselves to the daily grind as if it were the only thing in life? To the best of my knowledge, most people prefer attaching themselves to a poor lifestyle for the rest of their lives to venturing into something that really sparks their interest. To be honest, then, what is left for us to do in the middle of this reality which tries to haunt us is live a double life. This alternative route is necessary if we deeply want to make our lives brilliant. At least, we are going to wake up early in the morning aware that there is a unique way of life which is worthy to be explored.
