This year has been intense, no doubt. It’s been challenging, charged, and exhausting. So let’s move right along and talk about play magic, shall we?
Playful energy allows us to move beyond dualities, to the point where we are not separate from what we desire. Play moves us out of our ideas and thoughts of the divine and into our hearts, where we can experience the divine directly.
Playfulness is the energy that comes when we get so caught up in taking ourselves seriously that we forget the profound simple pleasures like sunlight on her face or the taste of a ripe mango. Play magic is the delicious moment when we remember that we don’t have to take everything, especially ourselves, so seriously. We don’t have to be perfect or know the right yoga poses or chant for hours on end. What is divine is inherent in us; it’s remembered, not learned.
This month, get into the habit of asking yourself: How can I add more playfulness to my life right now?
If you’ve been searching for clarity or deeper transformations, consider this:answers arrive from disengaging the energy that created the problem or question to begin with. We so often hold tight to what we desire with a grip that actually inhibits it from arriving. And we often take the soul by the collar and demand to know an answer right now. But when a desire is an imperative, there is an inability to be playful, imaginative, and childlike with how and when that desire will arrive. The secret to desire is holding it lightly.
The secret that play offers is that we already have everything we desire. So we can trust that what the soul craves is and always has been ours. This is the levity that sparks a shift, a change, an expansion…This is the moment that we remember we are not separate from what we desire or from the divine. It is the reminder that we don’t have to suffer our way to what we want most. The path to what we desire and to becoming the soul we need to be in order to receive it can be paved with joy, divine play, and with the sacred process of lightening up all along the way.
Consider this your divine invitation to play, lovely. So…how can you incorporate playfulness into your life this month?
