I loved this talk about Emotional Oneness by Matt Kahn so much and found in it so many hidden gems on different subjects, that I decided to repost it again, this time with focus it delivers on embracing Your Inner Child (that needs Shadow Work) and relationship with it alongside your Mind and your Heart. I posted this video in the blog post called “Emotional Oneness. Making Peace with Your Inner Child with Matt Kahn. Speech that moves hearts” recently as well.
Read some of my favourite messages from the video before listening to the whole audio. I really liked revolutionary way Matt Kahn spoke about the misconception of understanding EGO in today’s’ spiritual traditions and the need to deal with Your own Shadow in order to find Peace and Enlightenment that many of us are so craving for.
“In many spiritual traditions the focus is on understanding, unravelling, overcoming, and transcending the ego. And this way the ego gets a really bad wrap. In fact in many spiritual traditions when you have confidence people say you have an ego. And an ego is an aspect of your Soul. And when you take a heart journey, you understand that ego is just an inflated character through which your Inner Child wants to gain some attention that it didn’t get from the past. So the ego is an attention seeking device on the psychological level that your Inner Child employs. And if you’re trying to destroy and get away from your ego, you are sending messages of abandonment, resistance, isolation to your Inner Child. And this way your Inner Child gets even darker in order to get your attention. Like – I’m not gonna be loved by them but they not gonna ignore me! – And that’s how the Inner Child becomes the Shadow. Your Inner Child is just desperate for your Loving Attention and it takes a back seat and perceives your spiritual journey as the sibling that gets all the attention. And Your Inner Child gets really resentful of Spirituality, coz the seeking of it and focusing on spirituality in your life makes you totally forgetting your Inner Child.
What You don’t want to do is to bring your spiritual philosophy to your Innocence, coz the Inner Child perceives your spiritual knowledge from different sources as a threat, that is more worthy (and being treated as such) than ITSELF.”
Your Inner Child that is the Innocence of Your Consciousness is the Guardian of Your Soul and until you’ve given it the attention that it demands, it won’t allow the things that you’re here to experience, create and express in your life, to be recognised in your present moment reality.
And truly speaking – Your Inner Child is Your Only Guru You can Trust. We should be on a spiritual journey that gives as focus on our inner world and our heart and not so much so on external spiritual gadgets.
“So the focus of the Spiritual Journey is – bring your Mind and Your Heart back in to the reunited joy of holy matrimony once you and your Innocence are back on the same page. And then it just happens that you are living Oneness.
You are living Oneness when You are living from Inside OUT and not OUTside In.
Changing the relationship with your Inner Child is actually what triggers the abundance to be flooding into your life. Emotional Oneness is when you are having a Heart Centred relationship with Your Innocence.
