THE INNER CHILD ..

I was born on March 9th, of the year 1949 in Santiago, Chile. The city of the valleys  surrounded by mountains. In the winter, those mountains were covered with snow. When the sun came out of his hiding place behind the clouds, and lit the snow on its thick  coat on the mountains, against the clear blue sky they just  reflected the immaculate shine of their whiteness on us, the inhabitants of the city, as if they were reminding us to celebrate the powerful star in the center of our universe.

Exacerbating its brightness to the point that your eyes would almost get blinded with such clarity. As if they wanted to remind us of our own brightness and immaculate whiteness.

Bringing the message of the heart from the Condor from the South.

That is perhaps one of the things I miss the most about Santiago. The joy of the snowy mountains on a winter sunny day. Every time I go visit, I secretly hope the next day will be sunny and bring that memory and magnificently comforting  feeling of my childhood. I can’t stop admiring them and talking about their majesty. My nieces laugh at me. They are used to them. They never left them for good. They see them with different eyes.

My early childhood went by,  surrounded by flowers, butterflies, Swiss cotton, velvet, and organza, music, ballet, Spanish dance, and tango, books, buttons, Nannies who brought  great stories from the South, Hungarian Gypsies trying to read your hand for a couple of coins, and a black cat named Nino.

Festive gatherings with friends and the large basque clan carrying my father’s ancestors, my two little brothers, parents who called me the little golden girl and meant it, godparents who taught me how to imagine  enchanted faraway cities from Paris to the Berlin before the 1st world war, passing by London and Rome,  Kyoto and Delhi. The sharing of their  foreign traveling experience.

You have to understand, Chile’s geographic location  is so far away, that makes  people living in the valley surrounded by mountains dream of ancient places afar, like European and Asian cities.

Now, when I look back, I see clearly why I ended focusing in the Inner Child as in starting a movement by divulging the imperative need to take action to re-parent it, for all of us. It was Alice Miller who scientifically confirmed what I believed with all my heart. In a phrase,  “violence is not genetic”.

I was privileged to have a good life foundation for the first 9 years of my life. I think I lost the innocence when I was 7.  That is when everything started falling apart.

By then, the entitlement of being and feeling the center of that universe was already imprinted in my soul.  I still had my full emotional integrity. That is what helped keep my Inner Child pure, creative, innocent, using out of the box and critical thinking no matter how much resistance I encountered in the outside world.  No matter how much the rejection to innovation that used to feel so personal hurt. No matter how much I felt like I was coming from another planet. No matter how her soul was broken in a thousand pieces.

Critical thinking was very important for my parents.

They were always expressing and verbalizing their passion for Philosophy, History,  Art and Metaphysics,  the eternal question of “why are we here”, was often asked and thoughtfully attempted to be answered in deep and satisfying conversations.  They incorporated reading very early in my childhood.

I attended a private German School for girls subsidized by the German government. Even though the happenings were in the middle of the 20th Century, it was a very progressive school. For those nuns it  was about educating thinking women who stand out of the pack. They had a very ambitious and expansive curriculum.

My parents’ traumatic divorce at 9 caught me with an armor of love that helped deal with the bruises and blood shed of separation and competition. An out of the ordinary  foundation of unity laughter and love. I guess at some level I could hear my Inner Child’s voice,  Grace, almost always, no matter how much I needed to bury her in pain.

How was it possible that all of that world I lived in was suddenly broken for the rest of my life, and I had to learn to accept living with it. What a cheat!!! . How one does throw such a quality of life down the drain. It was hard to understand. Not only for me, for the entire family. Some people speculate that it was too perfect, and they still tell the story in disbelief.

After 9,  it always felt like the behaviors of the adults were too conditioned to things they didn’t even know they carried inside from their parents. I could feel the wounded Inner Child very early on, starting with my parents. Perhaps because mine was always acknowledged prior to the separation, I  refused to at least consciously turn my back to her.  Unconsciously her emotional integrity was broken. Even though she was even though she was not always acknowledged,  her fire was present all of the time.

That is one thing I am grateful for my parents. I don’t think I could have made it the same way without that dreamy contented full foundation of the first years. I was always extremely empathetic and conscious of people’ Inner Child pain.  Soon,  a natural coach developed in me.  She was the person everybody came to when they had a problem. My openness, authenticity and passion for the truth made people trust me in a very easy way.

So, by the time I started Soul Hangout, all my friends were saying “It is about time”

December 19th 2010.

When the cards were laid in 2007, and I counted on all of my time,  24/7 to think about my tribe business model and its contribution to sustainability, I asked myself the question. What is the theme closest to your heart what is the theme closest to your experience what is the one that will make the most impact. What is the story you want to tell every day with all your heart for the next 2 years, or 10 years.

The truth is, I have lived such a diverse life that gave me the opportunity to master so many different crafts  in the self improvement industry, that it was difficult to choose. It required some thinking. Self Improvement is one of the leading industries and the most important one for this time and age. We need to train our thoughts to re invent the world…because it is a new world.  It requires a new language coming from new thinking.

So, again, what is the thing in your life repertoir that will ignite your passion to get up in the morning every day with a renewed expanded energy, the thing that you see as your purpose and is bigger than you. Nothing less of that or short of that is worth living. Not worth living. Very simple.

Don’t you want to say that you are done living a depending, useless, and without purpose life?  For me it was like that. It is not worth one more minute working for some corporation with the only purpose of making a living. Not worth it one more minute, totally worth to explore no matter what happens and how many bumps on the road I encounter. Bigger than me. Way bigger. It scares some people. But that is another story.

So, my dear friend, here are the 4 questions again.

What is the thing you will pick to be the icon of your life purpose? What is the closest to your heart, what is the closest to your experience, what is the one that will create more impact and most of all which one is the one that will make you jump out of bed in the morning riding the wave of  your full potential and passion to create?

…Passion to create and purpose are one of those things like being born and dying. You have your own reasons, it is your journey.   Somehow you do it alone, and invite people to celebrate, cooperate and share with once it is born. You need support with that process.

You need the support that understands there is no conditioning in that support. Instead, complete respect for your vision. The respect you have for your vision.  The respect that a friend of Thomas Edison would have showed when he witnessed the 5,000 time of trial of  the fluorescent bulb, and patiently would be willing to extend the support  5,000 more times if it was necessary. That kind of support. Any other support, is detrimental. So if you encounter it, run away from it. It interferes.

Here is an article I wrote about Thomas Edison and his 10,000 tries.

December 26th 2010.

Some people have asked me to blog more often.  While I am creating service products, actual info products and books, and using most of my time in sales letters and other content marketing materials, I want to let you all know that I will be doing it more  often  by the beginning of the next year. Once the systems are in place and working.

Thanks for all your great comments and encouragement. Some people are interested in expanding the conversation of the Inner Child as in charge of the visionary team. It will come very soon.

Thanks so much to Soul Hangout followers and members. Have a happy holiday and a new mindfully coherent co-creative year in 2011.

Tuesday 20th of April 2011.

It has been 4 years and 3 months since I started to work full time on my life purpose. That is the time it took to research and co-create in coherence “The Hawk Mindset” . The only trans formative Thought Masters training for Entrepreneurs to ignite their passion to contribute and full creativity.

It was like having thousands of keynotes in my head that I was to use to create my own melody. The melody of my unique experience expanded in marketing words that would come from the bottom of my soul from the writer and the coach inside . At times it was hard to do. They seemed too many keynotes…

No way they all belong to only one program… Well, I was wrong…every piece I have written, every conversation I have had, every quote I have thought of, every article came form the wholeness of what now is the The Hawk Mindset. Everything fits in one comprehensive program. I am the first one surprised.

It is something like walking with the burning desire with its perception of the big picture and the blind faith sustaining all my doubts emerging from the doubts from the small picture.

What is fascinating is that today I am thrilled to announce that each single key note had a fundamental place in the finished product. Each single letter enhances the tone to the next in the wholeness of my newly found sequenced language. Launching very soon. Thanks to all for the great support

A child-like man is not a man whose development has been arrested; on the contrary, he is a man who has given himself a chance of continuing to develop long after most adults have muffled themselves in the cocoon of middle-aged habit and convention.

~Aldous Huxley~

Yes yes, your child-like traits, and your day dreaming are the symptoms of your creativity and your connection to divinity…Your Inner Child being supported by you. It shows part of you didn’t comply with the societal murder of your soul.

Forgiveness is the answer to the child’s dream of a miracle by which what is broken is made whole again, what is soiled is made clean again.

~Dag Hammarskjold ~

Buddah says “Your enemy is your master”. When you understand the other part is bringing an important message for your growth, when you understand it is important to decipher those codes, when you understand you have to become a master at reading those codes, no matter ho deep the pain, you understand there is nothing to forgive because the situation is there created by yourself, in order to become whole, and your Inner Child can be incorporated within you in its ultimate purity.

As a little girl I used to daydream about my real father coming on a white horse to rescue me.

~Christine Keeler~

One way of reading my life is that I have been in constant search for a father.

~Christine Keeler~

In here you see “the drama of the gifted child” as Alice Miller would say. A little girl who dreams for her father to come and rescue her carrying the same dream into adulthood. What she didn’t understand is that in adulthood she didn’t need a father any more. Now she was an adult…makes sense?

A child’s spirit is like a child, you can never catch it by running after it; you must stand still, and, for love, it will soon itself come back.

~Arthur Miller~

It is the light of empathy surrounding the love that will make it come back, attracted like by a lace magnet.

If you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work.

~Kahlil Gibran~

This seems to me the message that millennials are giving us. You see? They are right on the “money” If you cannot work with love you leave your work, and seriously find what you love and make a living of it. Your contribution is needed. The way to find that flame, your passion, it is imperative to connect with your Inner Child he/she will whisper in your ear exactly what you need to know~Turning your unsatisfied Inner Child into a satisfied source of knowledge and creativity.

Life must be lived as play.

~Plato~

As in bringing back your Inner Child…as if it was the play of your own unique story being you the main character, ready for opening night after rehearsal. The moment of acknowledging your mission, your purpose, your passion.

My parent’s divorce and hard times at school, all those things combined to mold me, to make me grow up quicker. And it gave me the drive to pursue my dreams that I wouldn’t necessarily have had otherwise.

~Christina Aguilera ~

This is so wise. Our circumstance as Christina says, mold us for better or worse. But what we are entitled to, is to following our dream. So, my friend, What is your talent? What is your dream? How are you going to start molding it today. With the help of your Inner Child, who holds the secrets of your creativity, and will help you remember your purpose, to voice it to the world. Out loud. The truth? The world is waiting for you.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

~Anais Nin~

And honestly, that is the very moment that your Inner Child has been waiting for. To embark with you in the wandering awareness of blossoming.

Inner Child Inspirational quote of the day

Soulhangout:

What is sad for women of my generation is that they weren’t supposed to work if they had families. What were they going to do when the children are grown – watch the raindrops coming down the window pane?

~Jackie Kennedy ~

You may ask why this quote is relevant to the Inner Child. Let me elaborate. This quote marks a moment in history that changed the life of many children  for ever.  Jackie has a great point about the well deserved  woman’s fulfillment as a professional at the same time that she is  a satisfied mother.

We, the Baby Boomers were not going to stay at home and become the domestic type, no matter how glamorous they may have looked  from the outside. It was too painful to see how unhappy our mothers had been. We had more to give to society than “just” changing diapers, cooking, cleaning and driving back and fort  kids from one activity to the next. We believed in it and trusted we could do both well. That was  how we fell in the trap.

We didn’t stop and think how sustainable the professional development of ourselves  was going to be for  our children. We didn’t stop an think if society had a support system that would make up for the change. We jumped to the opportunity of following the carrot hanging from a stick in front of our nose. We didn’t ask any questions. We did what women do most of the time. We gave ourselves completely to the two worlds. Unconditionally.

How much trade in human capital we were exchanging, was the question.  It was a trap. We ended up doing double and of course not really succeeding at neither. No matter how much money we were making.

The truth is, we were writing a contract with the workforce namely corporations, where work was first, second and third. Our children came after.  We ended up with 50 working  hours per week and our children grew up by themselves home alone, with the company of their peers,  the  TV and their  video games.

The corporation was everything. I will remind everybody that the family leave act was only signed in 1992. Before that, there was always a Damocles sword hanging on your head that said “if you are pregnant you could be fired without impunity any minute”.  Think about it for a moment.  Your salary or your kid. What message were those kids e receiving from the moment of  their creation.

For those of you that are shaking your head, I will remind you how the hole in the stomach felt when our child was sick, on a rainy day in the middle of the winter. Honestly how did it feel. Let me help here. It felt like an inconvenience, because he or she was interrupting the work flow.

The truth is they were an inconvenience. We had already settled for that kind mindless mindset.   So, what is the message we were giving to our children.  Very clear, right? They were an inconvenience in this bizarre  new social equation we had created where money ruled everything. It was swallowing us all.

We gave our loyalty to the corporation. We also gave them our sweat our blood,  our children’ precious time and our peace of mind. Most of our children grew up with a lot  of stuff, in a very lonely place.

When we spent time with them we were too absent  or exhausted to be present. Then, we praised them and enable them because deep down we felt so guilty. Those children of yesterday are the beautiful generation of today that grew up after that decision we made when Jackie Kennedy was  through the experience of her generation championing for us.

This is a “little detail”  about millennials that everybody is forgetting. They experienced our hole in the stomach when they were sick, and the panic in our eyes many times not because they were sick but it was a disruption  for our workforce.

Now, can you blame millennials for refusing to conform to our model? They are the direct result of that.  It wasn’t good growing up with absent parents running around like maniacs, pretending to be big shots of something they even didn’t know what it was about,  an illusion  only in their heads.

They experienced the  very clear  abandonment from every aspect of society.  Honestly don’t deceive yourself,   they didn’t matter. We were busy with more important things. Now, did we do the best we could with what we had?  Sure we did.  But it wasn’t a good contract for us, nor our children.  We got the short side of the stick,  and it didn’t even make us happy in the end.

This is what millennials refuse to compromise today. Their solid principles.They put family, relationships and friends first. They want to be good parents  but are not interested in giving their children  a large empty house.  They understand their time and attention will be critical for their children. We taught them that. They will not settle for any less than the quality of life they envision.  Who can blame them.  It was too painful for them to watch us too.

…And yes, it is relevant to the collective consciousness of the Inner Child. It is up to each of us to raise it.  Millennials are leading the way. Good for them!
