True Play: The Gateway to Emotional Health
Michael has told us many times that it is important for us to access the Four Pillars of True Rest, True Play, True Study, and True Work. Bringing these into our lives on a daily basis can not only make a tremendous difference in the quality of life, but also assist us in opening up our chakras which gives us the opportunity to make real essence contact with others. The Four Pillars are so vital to our health and well being that we choose them as part of our overall life plan prior to incarnating. The pillars of true rest, true study, and true play are chosen based on positive experiences we have had with them in past lives when, for example, we might have had a wonderful time as a Yugoslavian Juggler! In this life we then might choose juggling and tumbling activities as part our true play.
Lets then take a moment to look more closely at True Play. Its a fun place to begin our journey through the pillars! t is when we get into emotional center and the blossoming into the Higher Emotional Center or Agape that we truly open our hearts to each other and to joy.
True Play is first and foremost grounding. Every person needs grounding in order to feel fully present in their bodies and true play is such a fantastic way to experience being here on the physical plane and living in Joy. Michael has said that while the Expression polarity of Sages and Artisans do in fact need more true play on a regular basis, all roles in essence can benefit substantially from this play which helps us make direct contact with the Higher Emotional Center.
True Play feels fun, open, earthy, positive, passionate, expansive, and 'childlike' in its exuberance.
If you can make a decision to include one Play activity each day, then you will be amazed at how much better you feel, for this particular pillar has the added benefit of opening up the heart chakra which can be very healing. It is no coincidence that many of the Play activities include children's games, for when we allow ourselves to be playful, we heal parts of ourselves that were wounded when we were young. The healing of our woundings can allow us to experience life in a profoundly different way, based not on old unhealed patterns of self doubt and criticism, but on self love and acceptance.
So, go get that ball and head on down to the playground -- and don't forget to call a friend on the way! Enjoy.
