According to Jung The ‘Divine Child’ The Child Archetype was one of a positive nature, he said ‘ the child is potential future ‘ and that the concept and process of working with the ‘child archetype’ is a symbol of the developing personality’
people often find happiness in outcomes, what they have, achieve, get, buy, or given. Even when people realise that this is actually not the place of happiness, they still on automatic pilot continue to buy, desire, want. It's a fundamental human conditioning.
A simple ode, to the unreal memories of the Inner Child And the search for awareness of the present moment. Just a way to consider.
The 'hurt, damaged, unsure' Inner Child is easily affected by even the smallest setback, which then gets turned into something major, something that gets built into bigger proportions
Underlying commitments or hidden commitments are ones we made to ourselves when we were very young, these are commitments that align with who we think we are. We are not aware of them because they hide from our conscious knowledge. When we get stuck in repeating patterns that we are simply unable to change, no matter how hard we try, this is the result of an underlying commitment
Betrayal can be experienced through a broken promise, being let down, feeling abandoned by others during times of need. Whatever the experience, we can feel deeply hurt, anxious, uncertain, confused, angry, resentful, and really disappointed.
Often people find that creative inspiration comes when they connect to their Inner Child, this is a poem that Sandra wrote after one of our workshops
Sometimes we have no idea, where our reactions and behaviours come from. They are automatic, we feel hurt, angry, raged, desperate, heartbroken and it can arise in a heartbeat. This is the energy of the Inner Child reacting to a past time. The first step is being aware.
People go to great lengths to create change in their lives. We can change our hairstyle, our clothes, shoes, with relative ease and often not understanding that this desire to change our outward appearance is a deeper desire.

Samskaras make up our conditioning and becomes who we think we are ... there are positive samskaras.. but what we find is that the deep conditioning that comes from our childhood experiences become so entrenched, so inaccessible, so binding, that they can literally destroy our physical experiences.
The future holds a particular hook for us and this unreal world remains elusive and is a major source of depression, discontent, aggression, and loneliness. Ayurveda provides tools called Sadhanas that help us to connect to the here and now.
This journey is one that tugs at the heart and soul, its a journey within that takes you to the deepest depths of the universe and along the way you find all manner of creatures that try to force you to turn around. Some Ayurveda scripts describe this journey as the one to samadhi

As we move into the winter season, according to Ayurveda this is the early winter and we can become aware of what's needed before the harsher winter months set in.
