Physical Reaction

Physical Reaction

I was inspired to write this post today b/c of what happened in a class of mine last night.
It was in the evening and everyone was tired and serious.
I was talking about joyful living and asked everyone to get up and follow the instructions of an audio I was going to play.
And then I played Taylor Swift’s Shake it Off for a minute or two and encouraged everyone to dance.
Reluctantly everyone did. But what brought me the most joy was seeing a smile on everyone’s face afterwards.
Only two minutes of release and what a result!
Think about that.



How often do you allow your inner child to emerge?

Full of joy, full of innocence

Free-spirited and playful.

Dear One, do you remember back to the time of your childhood when your world was a giant playground? Few worries, creative in your games, you made new discoveries about the world every day.

How often do you do that now as an adult? Have you forgotten how to play, to laugh, to smile?

How often have you been told as you grew older to act like an adult or to be serious, or to stop daydreaming? But as you heeded those words, did you lose something in the process? Did you lose the ability to dream, to be creative, to focus on the most common occurrences with utter fascination?

Remember that you are still a child within and that inner child is asking to come out and play once again. Yes, you have more responsibilities, we understand, as an adult. But you also have more freedom to make choices without someone saying, No you cannot do that. The only one holding you back now is yourself. And what have you missed by being so rigid in your life? Where is your spontaneity?

Can you create more balance in your life by allowing yourself the freedom to just be as a child for part of your day? Are those items on your task list so important that they take priority over joyful living? Can you simplify your life so that you have fewer responsibilities?

Are there things you always wanted to do, places you have wanted to visit or activities you used to do before you became too busy and too responsible? We are not saying to give up all responsibilities, for many are necessary in your daily life. But can you reconsider your priorities so that once again you are able to see the world through the eyes of a child?

You have heard many times of people who have changed their life patterns after suffering a serious illness or accident. By being immobilized for a short time they have understood the sacredness of every moment of their lives. For them, it took these life changes to encourage their awakening.

We ask you to review your life now at this time and begin to make small changes for more balance, more joy, more spontaneity in your daily life. Change that response from cannot, do not, will not, to why not.

Yes, your life here upon this plane is to be an experiential one. But that also includes joyful, playful, wondrous experiences along with the situations that allow for personal growth. Can you honor that inner child, honor your playful self by demolishing the prison walls that have encased you for so long?

Start now. Begin today.

Skip, dance, jump for joy.

Do what it is that brings a smile to your face.

Be present in the moment.

One step at a time

And soon you will see your life begin to change.

Less worry, less stress, more joy.

And oh, what a wondrous change that will be!
