“I’m all grown up mom, you don’t need to tell me what to do”, you exclaimed when you were 10 years old. “I want to be a child again, when I had no problems back then”, you sobbed when you lost your job. Did you ever grow up in the end? Did you get yourself lost in the process? Many times people do rush since they things cos the idea of being present on another period of time seems amazing. It’s like wanting to be a parent only by thinking that kids are super cute. Growing up always brings responsibilities and this is what you didn’t keep in mind. Life is not easy but it can be easier if you are conscious of the changes. You can’t expect to be all grown up without facing the changes and the responsibilities. This right away points to your root chakra , to all your fears and how all these years you’ve been able to cope with.
Physical growth comes along with the years but spiritual and personality growth doesn’t follow this paradigm. You could be 80 years old but with attitude of a 10 year old kid or vice versa. Work on the reality you create on a daily basis and be present. Don’t try to rush life for any reason. The more you push forward, the more you pack issues and you try to run with them on your back. In the end you will break down, you will realize that you have to face more problems than you ever expected. Root chakra meditation would be beneficial to the point that you will be able to feel grounded and ready for the life’s challenges. Don’t be grown up cos someone told you so. Don’t be grown up cos you want to escape a situation. Be grown up cos you are mature enough to be responsible for your own self!
Do you remember when you were a kid and most of the times you were smiling, laughing and being carefree? Do you remember how many times your parents told you when you starting growing up more that it’s time to get life seriously? Do you remember when something silly happened in the class, you giggled and then you got kicked out cos you shouldn’t do it? So many things to remember as you realize that your smiles used to be real. They came straight from your soul as all your body felt the happiness with a simple smile. You came to a point nowadays that you realized that many times you smile cos you have to. You don’t really mean it but it will solve many issues or even prevent a fight. Many nights you watch fun movies that make you cheer up and laugh. When the movie is done, the feeling of loneliness is harder. As the days go by, the daily routine sucks you up on black hole full of stress. You need that genuine smile back. You also need to realize how your body works when the smile comes straight from your soul.
When you have a genuine, a real moment of happiness then it will be reflected right away to your chakras as an expression to your soul. A full body experience that will give you an instant pleasure that can’t be compared to anything else. When you come to a point that you laugh cos someone said a joke and you feel like laughing cos either everyone else did or you don’t want the person feel bad, then here you have rationalizing laughter. This comes straight from your head chakra, your third eye as you need to find a reason to laugh. The more you are on a stressful environment or lifestyle, the more you will observe that the times you laugh will be less and less spontaneous and genuine. If you are wondering what you need to do to fix it, the answer is energy work. This can be accomplished through self expression and mindset of freedom. You may want to laugh on the silliest things, you may want to go on a playground when no one is around, just remember all the things you did as a kid and made you happy. Smile again, feel and be happy!
