When we are young, until age seven, we live in the realm of our IMAGINATION, absorbing the world and all it has to offer. Our subconscious does not distinguish between right and wrong, good or bad, it just takes it all in. Takes in all the delights, joys, celebrations, judgements, limitations, pains and fears of our environment.
This is the package we grow up with and it determines how we see the world. We enter with such awe and wonder, unprepared and ill-equipped for the knocks and disappointments that repeatedly impact our sense of what’s possible and our view becomes narrower and narrower. We are then at risk of developing our own set of disappointments on top of everybody else’s, becoming disillusioned and bitter at the world and its people, including ourselves. We are often hardest on ourselves for believing we have failed and turn our anger inward, causing a massive drain on our fortitude, severely impacting our adrenals and the more we deplete our inner reserves, the more we DEPRESS the natural inner buoyancy for life. Once we have reduced the reserves to a critical level we can become chronically depressed and the body remembers this state of being, returning to it whenever there is recognition of the conditions that set up the decline in the first place. As adults it is ESSENTIAL that we recognise that WE are no longer children who had life HAPPEN TO US. We are adults that have experienced life in ALL its guises and as a result have the CAPACITY and RESOURCES to make different decisions. We can TAKE CHARGE, simply by setting up an INTENTION, we set about a CHANGE in the messages being delivered to our cells from the brain and new life and balance becomes POSSIBLE. We need support and consistency at these times, while we TIP THE SCALES the other way and reintroduce delight, joy and celebration to our lives. The body will respond, the cells will seek more of what it is getting and a renewed sense of BALANCE and EMPOWERMENT comes to life. We come FULL CIRCLE!
