Common Sense For The Soul

Chapter I (i) Inner Child, Intuition, IdentifyINNER CHILD: We all have an "inner child" that has nothing to do with how old we actually are. We all carry at least some painful baggage in our emotional backpacks; a fair portion comes directly from the treatment we received (or didn't receive) as a young, impressionable child. It can take us half of our lives to overcome it. Some never do; they cling so tightly to the "victim" or "poor me" mode, and cling to feeling pretty sorry for themselves; other times, the pain is swept "under the rug" or we "stuff" it; eventually there comes to be a short circuit between our heart, our brain and our ability to love ourselves and others. We all deal with pain in our own way. The problem with sweeping or stuffing, is that scar tissue builds up, and we act out, in many ways; addictions of all kinds; self destructive, self condemning or self sabotaging behavior & thoughts; perhaps also self hate. We just didn't get enough love in our childhood to give us the start we needed. What can change that? Commitment and conscious effort daily to stay focused on SELF LOVE, positive thoughts and goals. Childhood is rough enough, from the taunting some get from other children; if there wasn't a stable, loving home to come home to, the pain is worse and can fester for years to come; if there is emotional, physical or sexual abuse inflicted on children in the home, it can leave mental scars that require professional treatment. The bottom line to healing is love (self love) and forgiveness; If those caretakers or other children knew better, they would have done better; if we put ourselves in their shoes, going over their life experiences, for all we know we would have reacted to others in the same way; does that excuse their bad behavior? No...however, it is a fact that child abuse and family violence is a vicious cycle that is passed down from generation to generation until someone says: 'NO MORE". Awareness is half the battle won; we still have to win the war. Once we realize (brain gets connected to the heart) that we were hurt and we WANT to heal, we can recover, and find that joyful space in our heart that says, I CHOOSE to be whole. Choosing is the first step. If we are lucky enough to heal childhood trauma BEFORE age 28, our soul is not wounded; if we cannot heal it, our pain is a wound our soul will get many other opportunities to heal. In cases of severe abuse, it is usually between the ages of 43 and 45 that we have the mental maturity to be able to look at, forgive and heal the abuse and finally go about the business of our true purpose here on planet earth. Life can begin at 40, but if we do not heal during that period, our life will continue to give painful opportunities to wake up and heal; Unfortunate are those souls who leave this earth in their 70's or 80's as bitter, unhappy people, who never experienced or allowed themselves to see the beauty in this world; and who never knew more than a fleeting bit of happiness. For some, the pain is so great, they leave at a much earlier age (by their own hand) as bitter and unhappy as those who live much longer. INTUITION: The *feeling* we have that we *know* what is going to come about; i.e., Psychic Ability. EVERYONE has psychic ability; just varying degrees. One has to *trust* that their *gut* is giving them accurate information. We are all familiar with the term "women's intuition"... well kiddo, that is psychic ability! It is telling or warning you to pay attention to something; Learn to trust it, our *guts* often know things before the experience presents itself. It is real and not a figment of your imagination. IDENTIFY: Identify what can harm you and steer clear of it. Write your own "code of ethics" and live by it. When something has to be changed, we can change our minds, set goals and get to work.
