Nurturing Your Inner Child: A Journey Of Healing & Wholeness (Part 2) – Positive Reflection Of The Week
Healing Through Playfulness
Now that we’ve introduced the idea of your inner child’s energy, let’s explore how playfulness can be a powerful tool for healing.
When we tap into our inner child’s energy and embrace playfulness, we open ourselves up to a whole new realm of healing possibilities. Playfulness has the remarkable ability to dissolve stress, break down barriers, and create a sense of joy and freedom within us. It allows us to let go of our adult responsibilities and obligations, even if just for a moment, and fully immerse ourselves in the present moment.
The Healing Power of Play
Remember how, as a child, you could lose yourself in play without a care in the world? Play is a natural healer, and it’s something your inner child craves. Engaging in playful activities—whether it’s dancing, painting, playing an instrument, or simply running in the park—can help you reconnect with that joyful, carefree energy. When we engage in play, our minds are able to relax and let go of stress and worries. This allows us to tap into our creativity and experience a sense of freedom and spontaneity that can be incredibly rejuvenating for our overall well-being.
How Playfulness Heals
Playfulness allows you to release pent-up tension and stress. It promotes the flow of positive energy, loosening the grip of old wounds and fears. When you play, you enter a state of mindfulness and presence, which is a potent form of energy healing in itself. In this state, your mind is fully engaged in the present moment, leaving no room for worries or anxieties. The act of play also stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals, which further enhances your overall well-being. By embracing playfulness, you are giving yourself permission to let go and fully immerse yourself in the joy of the moment, ultimately promoting healing and rejuvenation.
Try It: Reconnect with Play
Take a moment to think about activities that used to make you feel joyful as a child. Commit to doing one of those activities this week. Whether it’s swinging on a swing set, building a sandcastle, or colouring in a colouring book, allow your inner child’s energy to guide you. Engaging in these playful activities can help you tap into a sense of nostalgia and bring back the carefree spirit you had as a child. This simple act of reconnecting with play can provide a much-needed break from the stresses of adult life and bring about a renewed sense of happiness and fulfilment.
