See the World Through the Eyes of a Child The Massive Healing Value of Your Imagination

Ayse Hogan

Did you forget to remember how miraculous it was seeing the world through the eyes of a child?  Do you remember that you could be anyone, be anything, be anywhere and be at any time?  It was easy as just wanting it and poof there you were.

Before drifting deeper into this, I would like to share something so important, you may or may not even know this, and if you do, perhaps you forgot, and this is an AHA moment for you.   Our imagination is powerful because, our subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between what is real and what is imagined.  Period. It doesn’t know if something really happened or if we imagined that it happened. 

So why do we care about this?  Because our subconscious mind is our supercomputer and it runs pretty much everything in our mind, body and energy systems.  For example, you know when you play a “what if” scenario in your head and you start to imagine some worse case scenarios?  Suddenly you start feeling the feelings that you playing in your imagination, and you begin to feel emotions and it completely changes your state of being?  OK, that is because the subconscious mind believes this to be really happening and is behaving accordingly, creating neural pathways, flushing your system with the chemicals required for this scenario etc. 

The other thing our subconscious doesn’t consider is time, it does not know the difference between past, present and future, everything is NOW.  This means, if you keep playing negative past scenarios in your mind, you are virtually retraumatizing yourself, over and over because your subconscious believes that this is happening to you NOW.  That is frightening and if it doesn’t scare the bejeezus out of you, it should!

So back to why you should see the world through the eyes of a child. Children are very present, very NOW oriented and they see the amazingness in the world.  Remember the first time you saw a bird or witnessed this with a child, or snow, or flowers or rainbows or grass?  You saw it with a freshness, with wonder, with awe, with the eyes of a child.  Everything was unspoiled, appreciated, and simple.  Wouldn’t it be nice to see the world with that naivety again?  Seeing a sunset or a sunrise for the first time was thrilling, and what if you could look at them every time as unique and beautiful and new.  Seeing the world again as you once did would be a beautiful miracle.  It would change your state of being, your energy, the feelings in your body and the way you think about things.  Wouldn’t it be nice if it were as simple as being present, playful and noticing the miracles that are going on around you every day? 

Here is a “What If” Scenario for you!  What if you could look at every cloud, feel every breeze, become aware of your breath, notice the colours in the world, the details in the flowers and the trees and all the beauty that we forget to sense to its fullest because we have become so wrapped in our lives, our “to do” lists, our tragedies, and our fears.  Children understand the value of this, and we have forgotten to remember this as adults.

What if right now you shifted your thoughts and understood that happiness or unhappiness are due to the thoughts we have, the words we use and the limiting beliefs we have in place.  You have the power to shift your thoughts, to see the positive aspects of everything, even the challenges and obstacles, to be more aware and to change situations that you have control over.  You have the power to do this without frustration or being bothered.  You have the freedom to sense the world like a child again!

From this day on, choose to live more fully, moment by moment.  It takes practice, like anything.  When a baby learns to walk, just think of how many times the child falls, and keeps getting back up until he or she is running wildly and freely.

The life we live is a combination of choices we make in every moment.  Its time to get off auto-pilot and choose differently and freely.  It is time to get back into the driver’s seat and imagine your life to be all the wonderful things you want it to be and notice how that changes your state of being and all the happy chemicals being flushed your system. 

Many of my clients first words to me are, “oh that is so easy to say but I have responsibilities”.  My answer is, your first priority and responsibility is to yourself, and all the others in your life come after you.  We have been conditioned to do things backwards in this world for decades and centuries.  Consider this, when you are happy and enjoy your life, how much better can you be for all the others in your life?  How much more joy will you find in each day? IMAGINE THAT!
