Many times in life, the ego asserts itself with punishing words and self blame that is unfair, and unfounded. It is important to develop an internal dialogue that brings the ego back into balance, and fosters an inner warrior-ship that defends the innocence we all carry. Innocence, as I recently communicated to a client, is not the same as naivete.
Innocence is the ability to see the absolute light and love within the self, another, or a situation, and our faith that anything can be tranformed. It is with Innocence that we often leap forward to tell someone or share with someone in relationship(can be friendship) all of the potential and gifts we believe they carry. It is with Innocence that we find the courage to have faith in ourselves, to attempt a new class, new career, move, or trip. When we watch a child discover the magic of the world, to talk to the animals and unseen fairies as friends, to speak of the dreams they have, we are reminded of the innate Innocence that they carry and we ourselves carry.
Foster this beautiful attribute within yourself. Make a list of the dreams you have that are based on this purity of heart, and repeat, as many times as it take, “I deserve to trust and believe in my worthiness to foster this beautiful vision within my self”.
I often see those around me, stepping forward to act in honour of their own belief in others light, particularly in relationship. Sometimes this light is not as consciously honoured in the partner or individual they want to beam themselves at. This does not mean that they were wrong in believing the other was deserving of this light, recognition, or faith. Sometimes it means that the other is not as aware of their own light, and are not capable at this time of reflecting it back to you. You have given them a gift in sharing yourself and your faith in this way. Foster this gift by allowing them to continue on their path, in hopes that they may find the means of honouring themselves in a similar way one day. Foster your inner innocence by moving forward in search of relationships that are as equally nourishing of the self, as you are willing to be of another.
We are all born Innocent, sometimes circumstance and experience dampens this brilliant light within, but no matter what, it is still within you. The angels reach around you in a gentle hug, to foster and reignite the spark. See the world this way for a day, see the light within all others, and remember, you are shining, every moment of every day, the angels acknowledge this, it is time to acknowledge it yourself.
