Let Your Inner Child Out to Play
I had a delightful experience about 6 years ago, while sitting
in my garden. The energy of spring this year inspired me to share my
journaling from that day. I hope it inspires you to embrace the
endless beauty of being in the present moment!
Heady smells in my garden
– jasmine, honeysuckle, gardenia, and olive tree. I breathe in the
scent. At first, it tickles my nose. Then it starts me on a journey
– a journey within myself.
The baby bird chirps for its food.
The bees buzz among the honeysuckle. Wind chimes lightly ring from
the faint afternoon breeze. Everything is as it should be - except
I think, “Where do I fit in? Where is my place in
this mosaic called life?”
I hear, “Your place is to be still.
To let go. To accept all as it is.”
I ask, “Why is this so
I receive in my heart, “It feels hard because you
have yet to truly let go.”
The phrase “Let go, let go now,”
continually swirls in my head. It is followed by a clear call to be
in the moment. I respond by letting go, sinking into a deep inner
place where a butterfly lands on my minds eye, then turns into a
bird. The entire moment turns yellow, and I sense the wee people and
fairies in my garden. My heart fills with love, and my energy lifts
to one of lightness and fancy.
I hear, “We are the energy of
fancy, can you not see? We are the playful whisper in your ear and
heart.” With that I allow myself to further release, lighten, and
let go. As I do, I hear, “Come here. The fairies in your garden will
lighten you up. Let your inner child out to play. Enjoy.”
let my inner child out to play and I enjoyed every minute of it!
What an exquisite moment! When
I let go and allowed myself to have the fancy of a child, everything
seemed to be beaming with sunshine and full of happiness. I still
smile thinking of it.
It is easy to turn serious by not
relaxing or not knowing how to let go. Our adult belief is that it’s
impossible to allow ourselves to play, that we have too much that
needs to be done to allow any time for it. Even when we do allow
ourselves to ’play’ it is seldom with the pure unabashed lightness
and fancy of a child.
When you honor yourself by letting go
and enjoying the moment, God and your angels will take care of
things. Everything still gets done somehow, someway.
can compare with the results from inviting more joyous moments into
your life. These moments are what your spirit needs to soar, your
body needs to stay healthy, and your mind needs to renew. This is
exactly what you are longing for.
Make time for
play. The fairies and wee people will join you, as they
are always full of mirth and laughter. Let your inner child out to
enjoy these delightful moments. Let this become part of your life,
