Experiencing your life by seeing and living as a child is refreshing. Doing so affords one greater freedom. For example, if you can, just imagine that you have been invited to a party and that you have never been to one before. You wouldn’t know what to expect and you’d be excited, open to all the new things that you’d see and the people you will meet. It would be an occasion to feel and sense for yourself, not one influenced or tainted by another’s past experiences.
Over the years we become conditioned to what is to be expected of us and that things should be done a certain way. It has become so important for us to behave in a particular manner that if we deviate from the “norm” it can be perceived as affronting another’s personal beliefs. They might react with embarrassment, anger or even feel betrayed and hurt. They mightn’t realize that by marching to our own beat that we are indeed following the prodding from an Omnipotent Intelligence that lives within us all.
Isn’t it fun watching the antics of children when they try something new, observing them as they discover life on their own terms. So why and when does it change to having to do things in the same way they have been done for generations? Why are we so afraid to be different? I do understand that sometimes it is for our own protection but I think we hold on too much to the fears our predecessors have passed down to us throughout the ages. It is so heartening to see a child that doesn’t react with fear but with curiosity, instinctively following their inner guidance flowing within them.
As you listen to your own intuitive guidance life becomes invigorating and new. We open ourselves up to discovering the joys we are meant to experience.
