21 day clean, purge, balance
12 April 2020 Day 17 (Balance 3) – Play
Welcome to Day 17 (Balance 3) – Reclaiming the openness and wonder of playing in the world.
Play is a vital element of recreating ourselves on a daily basis. Watch young children playing and you’ll see the free spirited openness, wonder, innocence, and delight they approach the world with. Adopting the characteristics as an adult can counter the years of restriction and limitations we have adopted through our life lessons in fitting in with peers, business, and so on.
Today find something that allows you to feel childlike characteristics for instance: flexible, open, joyful, spontaneous, creative, fearless, agenda less, take the road less travelled, taking risks (physical and emotional), remembering your inner child, self-investigating, and just being. Choose one thing that helps you remember and be childlike (ask your inner girl or boy what she or he would like to do) and do it today and choose something to do every day that reminds you and reconnects you to this part of yourself. Perhaps it is eating your favorite food (ice cream, popcorn), jumping rope, climbing a tree, dancing, walking in nature, gardening, coloring a picture, people watching, or whatever. Dr. Rivene likes to ask her inner little girl and saw a room filled with helium balloons with dangling strings that she feels caress her as she walks through the room.
Whatever you decide approach it with courage, from joy, wonder, no agenda or concern, no limits, no restrictions, and revel in the joy of just being – loving yourself and loving the experience. Resting in the place of yourself that just is, always present, without striving, comparing or directing that loves you just as you are in the moment. Play in the freedom of your garden of delight a little each day. God or Source has created the Universe as our playground to investigate and to self-investigate which allows us to become who we mean to be. Through play we try on our roles in happiness and bring them from imagined play to fruition in ourselves and the world.
Take Away (Balance 3): Adopting the characteristic of child-like play as an adult keeps your mind and body flexible, young and spontaneous. It renews mind/body and reverses the aging process.
Practice this for 21 days to see the effects first hand. Continue the practices from previous days for the entire program to fully experience the benefits.
Enjoy your Balance,
