Sometimes the quietest parts of us hold the keys to our deepest wisdom. These parts can feel like they had to give up at some stage of trying to be heard, instead dimming and downplaying their wisdom, as it was not valued in this 3D world. I have always felt a curiosity and care of this world and its people, which I can now feel is the natural essence of the Inner Child. Their soft, gentle innocence becomes subdued over time, covered over by the intensity of a world that programs them not to question anything.
My Inner Child would try to bring her thirst for learning to the world, which would get lost in the sea of debates and arguments of right and wrongs. The adults she looked to for knowledge were already too plugged into the program themselves. This left no space for a curious, creative, playful inquiry into life, which feels to my Inner Child a more exciting, organic way to connect and learn.
I feel this transition we are in right now is creating more space for us to spend time with and feel our Inner Child. We now have time to BE, and are being called to BE, more curious and creative with our time. Our logic and problem solving is not needed or serving us in the same way right now.
I feel this time giving the Inner Child opportunity to Rise up, no longer needing to Roar to be heard, as we have more quiet time to listen. I feel their sensitivity and simplicity being valued, feeling the gift that they are, and how soothing it is to parts of us to connect with them, feeling their gentleness and openness. How healing it is, taking time to look at the world through their eyes, seeing the awe in EVERYTHING around us, in Love and in Joy with the whole of existence.
As we sink into rest and reset, we have space to feel how other parts of us striving for success and purpose have been driven by the pain of the Inner Child. They have been driven from the lack of validation and genuine care they received in a 3D world that has not been considerate of their sensitivity and imagination, causing them to seek to be something or someone more than they already were. They were molded from a young age to live life in the striving-for-survival Matrix, where they are never enough and can never get enough.
I feel Yasmin, an aspect of my Inner Child, trying so hard to be heard and, when that didn’t work, she shutdown. She decided to listen instead, but as she disagreed with so much of what she heard, she numbed out. Trying anything she could find that was loud enough or toxic enough to quiet not only her pain, but the beating, aliveness and deep desire to create a new world that was echoing and calling in her heart.
I feel many of us being asked to feel, heal, and let go of the ways in which we numb out to not feel pain held by the Inner Child and other parts that have learnt these kinds of coping mechanisms. With daily life on lockdown, now is the perfect opportunity.
As we enter into curious, loving inquiry with these young parts, as they feel more relaxed and feel safe, they can lean in more. This helps us to STEP more fully into our king or queen essence, a simple, calm, confidence growing enabling us to respond in a new way to times of chaos in the world and in others. Instead of being reactive, we can stay grounded, taking self-responsibility for the things that support us to do so, enabling us to offer a stable presence in the world and with others.
Our ability and courage to speak up for what we believe in and share our visions of a New Earth, is no longer offered from a place of needing validation but from a genuine Love and care, for ourselves, our parts, and our kingdom. Remembering our Life’s service is to serve the rebirth of the inner and outer worlds.
We no longer need to be successful or powerful to be validated. We can lead by loving example of how TRUE power honors that which is in relationship with and including our sensitivity, our gentleness, our need for play and rest, and our innocence. The world many of us felt possible as children feels like it is coming more into being now, through these reboots we are going through. Feeling our parts and Inner Child is our service towards creating Balance, Peace, Love and Unity on our planet and is a way of supporting ourselves through these intense times on Earth.
This is why we came here and the reason why we have experienced so much of what we have. Life teaching us of pain so we can know Love; teaching us of suffering so we can know compassion; teaching us of loneliness so we can truly know togetherness; and teaching us of separation so that we can truly value innocence and simplicity as we are being returned to it.
