If you could, would you go back to being a child again? Whether you would or not, there are a few things you might have forgotten about being a child that actually are key to transforming your life as the grown up you are today. So what are they?
1/ You believed in magic and you saw it everywhere. Kids are naturals when it comes to thinking magically. I like to tell the story of one of my earliest Cosmic Orders which was for a Chopper bike. I got hold of a dandelion and blew its seeds away with all my might as I wished I had one, and I believed heart and soul that it would work. And then one literally appeared at the end of my bed. It was a present from my mum but I’d never said I wanted one. As we grow up, we’re taught that magic doesn’t exist. When it comes to being a deliberate creator working with the Law of Attraction or Cosmic Ordering, we are at our most powerful when we absolutely believe that magic can happen with all our heart and soul and let that light the fires of our intent.
2/ You knew that you could do anything. A friend’s daughter wants to be a lady farmer ballerina and mountain climber when she grows up. Somewhere between that and choosing our subjects at sixth form, we can lose touch with knowing that the world is a huge, amazing place and that there are thousands of incredible ways to earn a living, many of which didn’t even exist 10 years ago! Knowing that you can do anything goes far beyond just what career path you follow, though. It’s about not putting any limits around anything that you might dream for yourself. It’s about not listening to that inner voice that says it can’t be done or you can’t do it. That’s the kind of magical spell of negativity you want to steer well clear of!
3/ You didn’t expect to have all the answers – but you did love learning. You weren’t self conscious about not knowing what you didn’t know and you played through learning knowing that there was always something amazing to discover around the next corner. Don’t let yourself fall into the trap of thinking that you’ve seen everything or know it all, and the universe can amaze you!
4/ You didn’t give up. When you learned to walk, you heaved yourself up to standing and fell into a heap many times, but it didn’t stop you trying. When you were learning to read, you ran your fingers hesitantly along familiar words and paused at new ones, but you didn’t leave it there. When you first wrapped your fingers around a pen or crayon you watched as scribbles spread across the page when you meant to draw a tiger and you didn’t care that you couldn’t control what came out and instead got lost in the marvel of making marks on the page. Kids arrive programmed to keep trying and it’s not until much later on that we acquire fears of failure that can hold us back from realising the incredible potential that we all have.
5/ You were blown away by the small stuff. One of my friends distinctly remembers being absolutely captivated and unable to tear herself away from staring mesmerised at dew sparkling on a spider’s web in the early morning sunlight and thinking it was the most stunning thing she had ever seen. That feeling of awe and appreciation sets out a vibration across the whole universe that draws in even greater abundance. Remember to appreciate the small stuff and the huge things follow.
