We all entered this human life with a core innocence.
An innocence free from guilt, shame, and malice. A purity of light and lightness.
Inevitably our child self explores life and this innocence gets muddied.
A sense of loss of it can be deeply felt.
Our life experiences inform our personality, beliefs and character.
No doubt there were events, situations and challenges throughout your life that may have caused you to turn sour, cynical and bitter as a result.
Anger and fear begin to block your flow of vitality and life force.
Yet, all your life experiences and your wisdom can help you reawaken your state of innocence.
3 essential keys are needed to unlock your childlike purity, love and grace:
Using all these keys with the acts of:
A. OWNERSHIP of your life as it is NOW.
Stop living in the painful past, or romanticizing what once was. You are here now and can do many things to release the emotional pain being held in your body and psyche.
What thoughts, reactions and choices can you change to let go of the shame, and guilt you carry?
Share your shame story to a trusted friend, so the secrecy that binds it to you can fall away and you can feel your own self acceptance. Fully accept and love all parts of you. Affirm this everyday!
Apologize if it's needed. Release the guilt.
Also, watch your habit of creating guilt thoughts when no one has even mentioned anything to you about their expectations, or wishes.....that's your Ego brining up the past and your programming.
Say, NO to your ego, and change the thought to on of permission and FACT based in reality, at this moment!
You are not guilty for having different ideas, preferences or dreams. That is your unique self being felt and expressed.
B. FORGIVENESS of yourself and others.
It frees YOUR HEART and drops the EGO.
Do a forgiveness letter. Choose a 21 day, 33 day or 108 day ritual of offering forgiveness in your prayers and in your deeds to specific people.
Take the time and energy to heal the shame, guilt and anger veiling your true essence of innocence.
As you do you will begin to see the world through fresh eyes and all it's beauty, magic, mystery and potential will be vivid in your reality.
Affirm: I am ready and willing to release what I am holding that is blocking my divine innocence to shine.
Much loving healing energy to you all on the New Moon!
New beginning and fresh starts can be yours, if you CHOOSE, COMMIT to your own healing and have FAITH.
