Soul Connection: From the Eyes of A Child

by Moriah Marston & The Tibetan


Are you entangled in adulthood? Do daily demands of maturity override your innate childlike sparkle? Do you believe that the inner child is less important than the adult self? Are you afraid that an unrestrained inner child could dismantle your life?

The Tibetan encourages us to embrace and acknowledge the magical child as the link into the new consciousness. The magical child is the part of us that is pure, spontaneous, playful, fresh, excited, full of wonder, curious, trusting of the mystery and wise. Our psychic doors are wide open in early childhood. We see through the veils, hear the song of the Universe, connect with beloveds in spirit and remember past lives. Gradually supersensory doors shut. The magical child is obscured under family/community conditioning, demands to be mature/responsible and lack of support for the mystical perspective that validates the "imaginary realm" disregarded by adults. This is compounded by an inevitable shattering of innocence — a crisis or long-term wearing away of extraordinary sensation — that plunges us onto the solemn ground of "reality." Sadly the magical child is buried, sometimes forgotten for an entire lifetime.

The adult runs the show and only "indulges" the inner child on holidays, vacations, at movies/parties and in fleeting moments when no one is looking. Attachment to being credible, responsible, respected compels us to send the child self to his/her internal room — ignored and discounted. But then we get cranky for no reason and feel drab, staid, humorless.

Who decided that the inner child takes the back seat to the adult? Aren’t they equally important to our wholeness? To diminish the inner child as insignificant stultifies the central core where the magical child resides. Energy is blocked, unable to stream through the magical child, which creates a disturbing imbalance in the psyche. A vague lackluster bestirs a yearning for something more in life as we forget that the magical child even exists.

The magical child expresses our natural state of being. Society bridles the inner child’s wildness and conditions us to fear our unsophisticated, ingenuous, spontaneous, unconstrained essential individuality. Afraid of losing control and being rejected, we become tightly wrapped — keeping the magical child’s play at bay — determined not to be a fool. Like a shy animal who dwells in the woods, the dismissed magical child waits to be welcomed out.

It’s time to acknowledge, reclaim, embody, celebrate the magical child and trust this great Keeper of Wonder. He/she transforms life from a black and white movie into dazzling technicolor. A happily expressed magical child issues cascades of creative pizzazz that infuse each moment with glittering gleaming potential. Then every day is special regardless of our duties and obligations.

Many of us have explored inner terrain in therapy and become acquainted with the wounded child. We’ve probably spent hours connecting with and sending love to that hurt child — profound work crucial for transformation. However sometimes this self-examination creates a relationship with the inner child based on pain, wounds, trauma — especially moments of shattered innocence — to release frozen emotions.

While this loving attention is healing, we often reference only the hurts and forget to access the pre-wounded magical toddler who is eclipsed by the wounded child. We assume that when the inner child stops hurting, our delving is finished. But it has only just begun! Then it’s time to call out the magical child waiting in the wings.

Otherwise, the only venue for the magical child’s expression is through the wounded child. This rejection/denial of the magical child exacerbates inflamed childhood injuries. If we expect only the wounded child to surface, our preconceptions may ironically keep recycling these hurts because we lack a reference point for the magical child who hid behind the wounded child to safeguard the magic. We may fear looking at life through the eyes of a child — terrified of reliving the wounded child’s nightmares. It’s easier to retreat into adulthood and attempt to leave childhood far behind.

Only conscious of the wounded child, we might believe that the magical child never existed or was destroyed by childhood torments. But nothing can extinguish this divine spark of being so present and eager to connect. We need to create a relationship between both "kids" so that the magical child can teach the wounded child trust and openness. Our adult self can parent the wounded child. But it’s the magical child who can re-infuse the wounded child with a natural wellspring of wonder. Then the wounded child is no longer isolated and joyless.

How do we evoke this marvelous being? I’m always delighted when my magical child pops up at the most unexpected times, filling the moment with happiness, wonder and MAGIC! Unable to demand that she surface, I enthusiastically tell her how special it is when she arrives. I coax her out by releasing preconceived notions, remembering to breathe, relaxing, opening to nature, trusting myself, following joy, laughing out loud at my no-nonsense seriousness, chucking the need for formality-based credibility, being tender and sweet with myself, ditching my mission-heavy sense of obligation, playing more than working and living life as a cosmic game.

The popularity of Harry Potter and similar books/movies indicate the openness of the collective consciousness to the magical child. We’re beginning to trust that he/she really exists within. Ironically, far from being an obstacle to adulthood, we’re not fully grown-up until this extraordinary cherub is linked into our heart-soul and cherished for his/her exquisite wisdom —unburdened by ponderous reflection — a happy Knower of the Mysterious Magical Realm. Then adulthood isn’t simply contrived maturity based on a dulling sense of responsibility, predictability, doggedness. Rather it’s a wide platform of dominion that includes the keys to the car — freedom to be in charge of our lives while inspired and excited as the magical child shares the front seat, interpreting and drawing outside the lines of the Map of our Path, and supplying the pizzazz to skip along the yellow brick road of life eager to see what’s around the next corner of the Mystery.

The Tibetan’s magical child dances aglow with jovial spirited delight and mirth. He teaches:

"The magical child is the Eternal Child who fills the soul with quintessential innocence, freshness, purity, openness and a resounding YES to all that is. This child gambols on the Tree of Life, unafraid to go out on a limb, calling the Universe to come out to play. The Divine Youngster’s genius animates a dazzling creativity proudly displayed to Source for loving attention. He/she floods the soul with bottomless happiness and knows that all is well in the Universe. This Cosmic Youth trusts the Divine Plan’s orchestration of the self’s individual Path and opens fully in each moment to receive the boundless gifts showering the soul.

"The magical child is the Gateway to the new consciousness. The new paradigm represents such a dramatic collective shift into JOY — a golden age — that it requires the vision of the magical child to actually register the augmented shimmering quality of energy currently impacting humankind. Otherwise people, entrenched in usual expectations of ‘normal’ reality, are blind to what is unfolding. Because the veils are thinning, the Masters can appear in full manifestation. But humankind’s brain is programmed to perceive only minuscule bits of Light and is unable to distinguish interdimensional form. However the magical child, existing in multidimensionality, grasps all aspects of manifested Light.

"The Wizardry Youth automatically receives the supersensory gifts — clairvoyance, telepathy, clairaudience — of the new consciousness that unveil and clarify the larger reality of the Magical Realm. This dimension issues the Great Forces of Being. Therefore, the magical child is the connecting link to the Masters, Angelic Force and extraterrestrial family. He/she eagerly serves to make real and tangible the loving hookup between students and the Masters. Once this bridge is experienced at a fully conscious level, the student reaps tremendous benefits from deep communion with the Masters.

"The magical child, with eyes wide open, serves humankind by recognizing/invoking the dimension of the soul and bringing an everlasting youth that lightens heavy loads carried through all incarnations. The Divine Child’s essence of spontaneity wholeheartedly embraces the improvisational becoming process of Source Itself. The outcome is a tremendous creative channel overflowing with possibilities. The magical child’s endless curiosity, coupled with a brightness that creates an overlay of exquisite vividness and freshness, leaves no stone unturned in the quest for greater realms of magic.

"Unburdened by expectations and false conclusions, the Eternal Child holds the blank canvas on which to paint the Mystery’s present moment. His/her purity dispels cynicism and hardened defenses which makes self available for extensive contact with all dimensions. Collaborate with the transition into the new paradigm by using the imagination to look through the eyes of the magical child who gives permission to exist in the magical realm and brings a playfulness that opens the channel for access to higher realms of consciousness.

"The magical child is the Wisdom Keeper who, from an exploration of the Tree of Life and all of its mighty branches, knows the Universal Truth . This wonderful youngster brings boundless gifts and wants nothing more than to help with self’s mission. Don’t be shy — simply unleash the magical child into all areas of life and get ready for reams of fun, surprise, laughter, creativity, aliveness, authenticity and excitement. The Masters frolic with humankind’s child-self creating Fields of Amusement that evolve the Universe into ever widening circles of Delight."
