At what point did being different become a bad thing?
At what point did we start to believe there was no magic in the world, that unicorns and mermaids don’t exist?
At what point did we start judging people for interests different than our own? Or worse yet, judging and persecuting ourselves for having interests beyond the norm… Like crystals? Or dream catchers? Or even fortune tellers?
At what point did we start to believe witches were scary? And angels weren’t real?
At what point did “free spirit” turn in to “too weird”?
There is a point when all of this happens – when we are asked to stop being an intuitive, curious and carefree child and we start to turn away from our true selves. We start judging ourselves, and carry judgment for others. Inevitably we push away so many things that we are designed to love – designed to bring us to our higher purpose.
But why? Why is being authentically ourselves so difficult to do once we hit a certain age? Fear.
I’ve noticed that the things that have stayed in my mind, the things I’ve pushed down so hard from a young age, are the things that I’m most reluctant to now, BUT they are also the things I am getting the most healing from. Like crystal shops, the new age section in the bookstore, Reiki…
I had been so drawn to these things from a very young age. I pushed them away because they were too “out there” for me. In the last few months its as if my body started screaming for them, and when I caved (and pushed aside any fears) I used these things to heal, and I continue to do so.
So think about it? What (where/who) is something you’ve been feeling pulled towards lately that you are reluctant to pursue? Is there any connection from your childhood? And why haven’t you just done it yet??
Follow what you are drawn to, despite judgment, despite fear. Maintain a curious, intuitive and carefree attitude. It could change your life ❤️✌️
