Hello Child of Adventure

Yep it is that moment of the month again. Time for Adventure News.

This month we won’t be focusing on all the wonderful craziness that is the world out there. This month we will be having a look at the inner world. Specifically your inner world.

There is an aspect of you pricking up its ears right now as you read that. No not your negative ego. No not your intellect. Look enough of focusing on those narky, twisted, fearful parts of yourself. At some point there comes a time when you can, and should, actually just let those parts go. Let them go once and for all.

The aspect of yourself that is pricking up its ears and truly hoping that for the first time ever you are going to pay attention to it, is the Free Child.

Yep, the beautiful, creative, curious and giggling child. You know, the one you only allow out when no-one else is around. The one that loves to paint, write, eat a quadruple-double-decker-super-upsized-chocolate-smothered-ice-cream. The part that likes to talk to trees, birdies and flowers. The part that likes to take a bubble-bath with candles, incense and cool music.

Pablo Piccasso once said: “It took me 25 years to paint like an adult. But it has taken me my whole life to learn to paint like a child.”

Now some of you may be thinking: "oh I’m too old to be dealing with my inner child…" Hogwash! We are not talking here about running about like a feral four year old, although that might be good for you every once in a while. Remember the art of tapping into your happiness and power is deeply linked with your internal communication with the inner child.

Of all the wonderful aspects that make up you and your consciousness the free child is the one that knows what it is that truly makes you happy. Your free child is custodian of your happiness and your song, the song of your heart.

And to be absolutely up front with you, your happiness, right now, is just about the only thing that is important.

“I have no hostility to nature, but a child's love to it. I expand and live in the warm day like corn and melons.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The child is the custodian of your happiness and you are custodian of the child. The free child is not very interested in the way the illusion of the real world works. The free child is not interested in the survival aspects of this planet. What your free child is really interested in is unlocking your happiness, in the glorious, wonderful and joyous experience of life and living. The Free Child knows he / she is free.

So it is time to create and deepen your rapport with your Free Child. Give him or her the space to really express themselves. Put aside the time to allow the poetry to flow, allow yourself to go for a music lesson or a singing lesson. If you listen carefully you will realise the Free Child has been talking to you all along, talking to you through your dreams, hopes, aspirations and inspiration. The Free Child has always been there quietly, and sometimes not so quietly, attempting to tell you what it is that makes you happy. All that is required of you is to create the space where you can explore those things whatever they might be.

So in this months newsletter you will find poetry and works by people who are passionate about what they do. They are taking the time to listen to their Free Child. When we begin to listen to that voice within the magic crackles in the air, the creative juices flow and life becomes a wonderful dream. A wondrous journey, where smelling the rose is as important as getting to the destination.

You will also see that on the Meditate-on-it.com website we are launching two new meditations, specifically designed to assist you to re-connect and develop that relationship with your Free Child.

You will also find that we are launching a number of E-books to accompany the meditations. Each E-book is an extensive companion resource for people interested in entering the field of Magnetic Healing. So if your Free Child has always dreamed of assisting people to heal themselves then check out the E-books as well. These E-books are also powerful tools for your own Self-healing.

Oh and of course it is commerce’s wonderful month of Cupid. So why not take your Free Child out on a date. All on your own, just the two of you. Let him / her tell you where they want to go and what they want to do. Is it the art gallery? Is it to stay home and buy some hand paints? Is it to go and visit the science expo? Whatever it is let them tell you. If you listen inside yourself quietly enough they will tell you what they want to do.

“The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.”
Albert Einstein

A reminder again of our sister site WDHR. If you enjoy Adventure News then we are quite sure you will also enjoy the WDHR newsletter. There are also numerous E-books available on this site, so go and have a surf.

Enjoy the adventure

the Simple Life


Motorbikes

We received a great page this week for all you Biker Free Children out there. It is a fantastic page on biking and maintenance of your bike from Reyna Joubert. Reyna has spent a life time in the field of mentoring and has become one of our Simple Life Mentor. She has this to say of biking:

“Unlike most young men who desire their first car, as a biker woman I traded my second hand 1300cc Toyota car for a BMW 600cc motorbike at the age of 18 and my love affair with motorbikes and the biker lifestyle has not faded for the past 50 years.”

Music

For all those Musos out there go and have a look at our great Guitar PagesGuitar Pages with images that make sense. Our resident guitar teacher, Andrew Pittendrigh has presented a simple and clear set of pictures that turn guitar tabs into crystal clear reading. Personally I wish my first guitar teacher had as much dedication and clarity with regards to instruction when it came to reading music. Google Image search seems to share my sentiments. For the last two months running Andrew’s pages have been at the top of our most searched pages list. Bravo!!
