It’s amazing to see a kid’s full capacity to connect with his real deep necessities in no matter of time. Children are so clear and bright in spirit because their connection with themselves is so easy and accessible.
To give an example, children connected with an imaginary friend as their play buddies for emotional support and companionship very often or always. That imaginary friend will be available when it is more needed to give him/her unconditional love, anytime. This friend will exist until the kid wants him to stay or basically until forgotten. However, it might last forever as an inner voice or spiritual guide later as an adult.
All of us could have a deep connection with our inner child (or inner voice) anytime and anywhere. This inner connection can bring us back to feel alive, joyful, playful, creative, and open for different kinds of adventures. The only thing needed is to be willing to accept that we have grown physically but our spirit and soul is still fun and joyful, ready to enjoy everyday as a magical experience; just like a kid.
If everyday we start our days connecting with our inner child or spiritual guide, we would be able to feel our days more smoothly, productive and joyful. And the best way to do it, as I always suggest, is through meditation. A couple of minutes of our morning and night could change our whole day perspective.
How great it would be to live seeing life through a kid's eyes with magical colors, textures, adventures, games, and experiences full of sparkle of love. I invite you to feel your heartbeat every morning and go deeper within its tissues to find the child that is deep inside. Invite him/her to come with you today to play with you, to laugh, to sneak through the day finding magical treasures and places. I’m sure you both will have so much fun loving each other with the only pure love, the unconditional love that can overcome everything. At the end of your day, make sure to close your eyes again to connect with your heartbeat and put gently your inner child to rest to recharge his/her energy for another day tomorrow.
With consistency, kindness, compassion and love this practice could take you to understand that your days don't have to be so hard. Instead, your days and your life could be enjoyable in every single sense; playful, fun and productive.
That the light in me, recognizes the light in you,
