My favorite thing about this time of year is that there truly is magic in the air! This is the season of perpetual hope, manifesting miracles, where anything is possible and dreams do come true. So how do we up our holiday spirit and open up the doors to abundance and prosperity?
The most powerful step in manifesting miracles is getting in touch with your Inner Child. Do you remember wanting something so badly when you were a kid, that you swore you willed it to fruition? Maybe you got your picture taken with the REAL Santa – you just knew it! Or maybe you simply said your prayers before bed, and your requests were heard. Those were the days of wishing upon a star, or picking up a lucky penny and throwing it in a wishing well.
These simple acts, whether we knew it or not, were rituals themselves. These small acts, along with the power of belief, made anything and everything possible and helped you manifest your miracle. That sense of child-like wonder is the stuff miracles are made of. The problem is that as we grow up in this 3D existence, adult life can end up seeming like a series of disappointments.
Before we become jaded and forget who we really are deep down, we all believed that if we truly wanted something bad enough, it could happen. If you’re struggling to see life with this type of optimism, I challenge each of you to find that girl or boy that’s still inside there somewhere, and channel that innocence and playfulness into your current life.
So, how exactly do we do this?
Start by asking yourself what you would’ve done at age 5, 10 or 15 even. Think about the childhood pleasures that once brought you some good, clean fun.
Maybe you want to sit down and color, or maybe you decide to go for a bike ride. Skip rocks, swing on swings or pack a picnic and go on an adventure. Think about the ways your younger self used to escape when playtime was encouraged on the reg. Maybe you once had fun holiday traditions that sort of slipped through the cracks over the years, and became a thing of the past. And maybe it’s time to change that!
Go ahead and make a list of all the things you loved when you were growing up, no matter how big or how small.
Once you’ve made that list, (and checked in twice – bad joke guys) – it’s time to start checking things off! Let’s consider this your Inner Child Bucket List. Maybe for shits and gigs you add on some things that you always wanted to do or see as a kid, but never got around to. Let your intuition guide you to the depths of your imagination, and to a time and place where you slayed dragons, found Prince Charming or sailed the Seven Seas.
Visualization is a powerful meditation tool, and at the end of the day is the stuff our Inner Child lives for. It is also your secret weapon for manifesting, so fly to Neverland, go down the rabbit hole to Wonderland, or land that house on the Wicked Witch. The ability to even just daydream for a little while can burst the Heart Chakra wide open and uplevel your manifesting.
Self-care and self-love can be a tough pill to swallow, but we all need to be better at nurturing ourselves. Start planting your seeds of intention for the New Year (manifesting) now, and embrace what’s ahead with a sense of adventure and excitement. Your Inner Child has been waiting for you, and can’t wait to see you again!
Meet your Inner Child with open arms, and stand back and watch in awe as some miraculous changes come your way and the miracles you manifest! Now is a time to believe in miracles. Make a wish and know deep down that you’ve always had the power inside of you to manifest your heart’s desire.
Your Inner Child is asking you to come out and play. So what are you going to say? Happiest of holidays from The Mystic Mages!
