Healing the Inner Child

blondgirlI took my inner child for a walk this past Sunday. She is about 5 years old with golden locks of hair and sad eyes.
She wanted to cry. Not just some tears or a random tantrum. It was a deep visceral sobbing. It wasn’t a long “poor me” crying session either.
It was a release from sadness in every cell in my body.
It felt like in that one cry, I cried for my mother, my grandmothers and all children who felt neglected.
I have done lots of inner child work before, I teach it almost daily to my clients, never did I have this communion with my little girl before.
I asked her the usual inner child questions ‘What would you like to say?” and “what would you like to hear?’.
I think there is an Universal Inner Child within us. He or she wants to be seen, heard, and valued.
I practiced slow deep breathing with her in a seated position and I just allowed her to hang out with me all day.
It isn’t so easy to do inner child work, that is why most people avoid it all their lives. It feels raw, extremely vulnerable, often times confusing and emotionally draining.
But the rewards are many. Inner child healing creates integration as a functioning adult, emotional maturity and a greater awareness when acting or reacting from a child’s perspective.
As we give our inner child what she perhaps never had, like deep listening, we will naturally create others being present, kind and loving towards us.
What does your inner child like to have or do today?

Beyond Forgiveness

newimagePerhaps you could use to give or receive some forgiveness in your life right now? Have you ever felt the need to forgive someone and you didn’t know how?

Have you ever wanted someone to forgive you for something and you felt powerless?
What is this ‘thing’ that keeps us in the loop of guilt, blame, regret, and anger?
Forgiveness is a big part of the Breathwork/Rebirthing process and the last couple of years I have been meditating a lot on this topic.
I’ve found that Access Bars has created more space in my world where I can start to have more space for other people’s world and not be so invested in “right” or “wrong”.
I am not talking about letting other people be abusive. One needs to be aware and strong enough to say “no’ and “goodbye” to abuse. I am talking about things that has happened in the past and little things that happens frequently that ends up taking a lot of our energy and distracting us from actually creating what works for us.
Everything has accelerated. The speed of time in our daily lives has become nearly impossible to catch up with.
How about if we could forgive at the speed of light!
If we had no emotional charge in our bodies would we be drawn to guilt?
If we had no magnetic pull towards what is destructive would we hurt other or feel hurt?
If we knew all the times, beyond this life time, where we were unkind, would we make others wrong?
If we were aware of the grander picture and lived from Oneness would we need forgiveness?
I am dreaming of a world beyond right or wrong, beyond good or bad, beyond duality.
I am dreaming of a world where Forgiveness is Obsolete.
Is it possible to have that in this reality?
I wonder…
Join us for a group Breathwork session as we explore, question, and stretch our minds about the concept of Forgiveness creating more space for peace. March 11th at 7;30pm.
I do Skype sessions on Skype as well!!
 
How does it get even better?

What I pray for! A Poem

What I pray for! A Poem

What I pray for…
For the greater Vision…
the release from judgment.
For complete memory of God…
the release from separation.
I pray for readiness.
For the embodiment of humbleness…
the release of the Ego.
For listening to Mother’s Song…
the release from uncosnciousness.
For – Giving…
the release from wanting.
For Miracles…
the release from projection.
For the awakening of the Serpent…
the release from madness.
I pray for Truth.
