Dear people, I am the voice of the Earth.
I greet you all in this place of connection and simplicity. Join with me: the ground beneath your feet, the trees and the grass, the rocks and all nature around you. It is around you like an energy you absorb and that nourishes your cells. It is a place where the original Earth energy is allowed to be; where there is room for me.
There are many energies in human society which run counter to the original Earth energy. Those which run counter arise from the thought processes and attempts at taming life on Earth. Those mental energies have become so commonplace for all of you that it has become almost as a second nature. Only as a small child did you have that direct connection with what was most natural.
I ask you to now remind yourself of that direct, natural connection with your body, and not with your head. Descend with your attention deep into your body, away from your head, and go down to your heart and your abdomen. Imagine your attention as a soft white feather that slowly touches all parts of your body: your heart, your arms and hands, your abdomen, your legs and feet.
Stored in your body is a reminder of simplicity and purity. The body remembers; it stores old wounds and traumas in the memory of its cells, but it also stores the primal memory of wholeness, spontaneity, and naturalness.
I ask you to now connect with this primal memory. See a child before you, the child that you once were, or just the appearance of a child who is happy and carefree and in harmony with nature. When you feel happy and carefree, you are not constantly considering whether what you do and what you feel is good, or what the ultimate effects will be, or what may happen or can go wrong. The mental power in you constantly interferes with and constrains the spontaneity that is also there and that wants to come forth from the primal source to your embodied soul.
There is a spontaneous flow in each one of you. Your body carries that flow in every cell and it contains my energy that is the energy of nature. The energy of your soul and that of nature come together in the cells of your body. But they are covered over by layers of learned ways of thinking which are fuelled by fear.
Imagine that your body cells were originally full of creative light that is connected to both the Earth and to your soul. The two energies of Heaven and Earth have no trouble finding each other; they are attracted to each other and belong together. It is humans who have created an artificial split there.
These two energies may appear to you to be higher and lower, but in your original nature that separation does not exist. They dance together, the energy of your soul and the energy of the Earth. Try to feel that joining once again in your body. Feel the fluidity of the light that is alive in all your cells and is full of the information from an energy that can help you find your way.
The child, who I just asked you to call up in your imagination, is the Messenger of the united energies of the light of Heaven and that of Earth. Now ask this child if it has a message for you. Let that message come to you in a way that suits the child. The message does not have to be in words. It is not a mental energy that the child in you wants to send. The child’s energy is very alive and tells you where you have become trapped in old habits and thoughts.
Let this child with its energy then go to a place in your body that most needs that energy, the spot where your energy has become blocked by being temporarily overcome by fear. Fear causes the mental processes to take over, which are then going to try to manage and control the mechanisms of life in order to protect you and to survive.
That reaction, however, never feeds the inner child; it does not nourish the flow of life that you essentially are. It leads to complaints in your physical body or to discontent and pain in your emotional body.
Recognize the veil you have put over your self: the veil of fear, excessive thinking, distrust, maybe a lack of faith. See if you can observe that veil in your body: any gray or dark spots which grip your energy so it cannot flow freely. Look at that dark place and become aware of who you really are.
You are not your inner child, although your inner child lives within you. You are the awareness that supports the child and that makes choices, while the child within you is the feeling part. It is that part of your life that flows and desires self-realization and that needs you – your I, the creator within you, the consciousness within you – in order for it to really come to full expression.
The child in you is like a delicate and beautiful flower who needs you to cherish it and to care for it; it needs you to understand it. You are the caregiver and the keeper for your inner child. Life gives you this child – your spontaneity, your desires, your creativity – and you are the creator who has a choice. You can let your inner child remain veiled and be oppressed by the fears from society which overwhelm you when you are born. But you also have the power to break through those fears and the excessive thinking.
Take hold of your deep power of consciousness. Consciousness is not about thinking, but is the willingness to be present completely and to not look away from your pain, away from your inner child, and to see both the gifts and the pain that are in the child. I ask you to see your child clearly, and doing that partly dissolves the veil that surrounds you. Seeing this child revives it and awakens it; the child then feels it is allowed to be.
Feel very clearly the message of this child and feel your own protective power. You are able to distinguish between fear and love, between choking repression and real freedom and spontaneity. Allow in your own childlikeness, your own spontaneity and innocence, and everything that derives from it.
But doing this can call up anxiety in you, because you have not yet learned to trust this process. You have been told that you need to look toward the future, that you have to anticipate what can go wrong, that you cannot just go ahead and be yourself, that there are dangers threatening.
However, there is greater danger in this way of thinking. It suppresses your original creativity and makes you fear for yourself by causing a split within yourself, which is the biggest danger for people because that split can cause destructive behavior. It creates real chaos because there is no longer unity within people, there is no center.
Thinking can never help you to be centered. Your true center is in your abdomen where you are connected to me, the Earth. Feel the Earth energy that flows there. Let yourself go, and dare to trust. Life is good and wants to bring you home to yourself – trust life.
Thank you so much for your presence and your attention.
