When we speak of looking at the world through the eyes of a child this is meant not with the naivety and vulnerability of a child, but with open minded curiosity, creativity and natural intuitiveness. It is about channelling your life experiences through a filter of self acceptance and awareness, not so that you are tainted and jaded by your experiences, but so that you are empowered by them.
Once you change the way you look at the world the world changes the way it responds to you. Everything is vibrational frequency and the energy we send out returns to us on the frequency we are operating from. It is like tuning a radio, if you are searching on the wrong frequency you will never find the station you are looking for.
When we consciously choose to work with our inner child aspect, it helps to restore this creativeness, the childlike curiosity and enthusiasm that you now need to channel into your adult life. As we become world weary from one bad experience after another, destructive relationships, stressful working conditions, we tend to view life in a more cynical manner through the filters of these negative experiences, expecting more of the same.
We feel that things will always be the same that we will always be the same, but that is not the case. We truly hold our future in the very next decision we choose to make, beginning with small ones and as our confidence grows then we become bolder until we have the courage to really reach out and grasp the future we want. To begin with we need to get in touch with our wise inner child and work at soul level to get us back on track to our true spiritual path for this optimum health and wellbeing.
We can do this by remembering what was important to us back as a child, our hopes and dreams, our plans for the future. Now I am never going to be physically able to do some of the things I wanted to do as a child, and some I wouldn’t want to do now! But there are other ways of becoming involved and enjoying aspects of it.
As a child we are encouraged to try new things all the time, something we don’t do as much as an adult. So be brave and try a class in something you have always fancied knowing more about, even begin by reading a book about it. Do something that feeds your soul and brings joy into your life. You may not be able to change your whole life overnight but you can change a small part of it a little at a time.
If your childhood was anything like mine I was rarely indoors, something else we neglect as an adult in this technology filled world. So in your free time put your tablet and phone down for a while and get out and meet people face to face, spend some time in nature. The internet is a wonderful tool for learning more about the world and chatting to people you wouldn’t usually have the opportunity to, but it can also become a prison of your own making.
There is no greater teacher than a young child, so spend quality time with your own children, your nieces, nephews, grandchildren and those of your friends. Then you really will view the world through the eyes of a child.
