You. Magic.
Wizards, witches and alchemists... angels, dragons and elves... hobbits, orks, and flying carpets... pixie dust and magic genies in golden lamps…

When did you leave the wonderland? When did you decide that certificates and degrees replace your magic spells, that you can’t wear mismatched socks anymore, that glitter and pirate flags belong to a dress up party? When did the child in you stop and the adult in you take over? What day was it when you looked in the mirror and you thought of yourself as a grown up?

I bet you can’t answer this with accuracy. There is no timestamp. Not a defined moment. No clear boundary. That is because there is no such thing. YOU are still YOU. Every day, your inner child is walking around with you in your adult, professional, mature body.

You may still keep your favourite childhood toy, your talisman, lucky stone and your magic bracelet from that carefree time stashed away in your messy drawer. Your keepsakes box serves as a treasure chest, as a subconscious reminder of your free spirit. You may use your inside voice around other adults or create a persona to fit into the society you are born in.

But...after dark, when you are by yourself or around your friends, your loved ones, the people you trust, you let your inner child out for some playtime. You drop the guard, you ditch the mask, you unveil depth and your real self. You laugh louder, you smile broader, you care less, you play more, you ARE YOU.

Still. Magic. You.

"Yes and no. It depends” … followed by a random stream of consciousness. This is the answer I give most often when asked for my advice or opinion on something. The more I learn, the more I recognize that there is never only one true answer. The more I spend time with people going deep inside the depths of their beautiful minds, the more I humbly acknowledge the galaxies of thoughts, emotions, primed conditioning and changes of mind that we all share.

What was true for you this morning, is not true for you in the afternoon. You grow. You meet people. You hear their stories, you understand their reasons for doing things their way. You explore, you adapt, you feel and you react.

The more we are surrounded by people/media/groups who try to tell us that THIS IS THE RIGHT/ONLY/CORRECT WAY to do something, the more our inner wisdom feels rejected and disrespected. Your heart’s intelligence clashes with the one in your brain. Your gut acts up, your inner sage rebels in sight of the rigidity of politics, rules, “we have always done it this way”

And it doesn’t stop at the spiritual/ mental/ cerebral level. Stiffness in your brain equals stiffness in various parts of your body … strongly held opinions turn into physical lumps and knots... fixed beliefs manifest themselves as cancer … there is tension in your neck, grinding teeth in your sleep, biting nails, feeling your jaw hurting as you wake up in the morning. Tension headaches got their name for a reason, as do comfort food and love handles.

Thinking and feeling are twins. Be a wise parent, look after both the same way. Watch yourself, see them play and fight inside and make them reconnect again and again. You are made out of water and energy, both aren’t static things. Both are moving, flowing, travelling, buzzing, rushing or trickling inside you as currents.

There is no hard yes or no to any question, there is no “always” or “never”, there is only flow inside of you, and that flow changes all the time.
