“Dance like no one’s watching” – you have heard this thousands of times, but what does it really mean? How do you really feel about it? How do you react to it? Do you really dance like no one’s watching?
No, probably not…
We are wild and untamed as children, then year after year we are taught to behave in a way, to act in the way accepted by society. You put on masks and extra layers to reach that level of mediocrity, in fact. You try to be like everyone else, to fit in. But, deep down inside, you want something else, you want a sort of freedom that you can’t really describe.
Find that YOU, that wild and untamed self that dances like no one is watching, flying with the speed of light in the colorful universe, brightening up the world and singing in rays of lights.
Your Inner Child Knows You
No matter the layers and the masks, deep down inside there is your inner child who knows you very well and knows what you like and what you don’t like. Your inner child knows your real smile, your hidden passions and the way you really dance when no one is watching.
I feel that it’s really easy to loose that child, that sparkle of joy, the sole connection with your true freedom. It’s hard to face society every day and somehow not letting it reach you, touching your inner self.
What is Your SECRET Self?
In the end, it’s all about this. Yourself, as you really are. The way you carry your body when no one is watching, when you do not have to sit straight, when you can imitate or show any position. When you can eat as you want, talk as you want, laugh as you want. There are very few people close to you who really know this secret self and it becomes extremely comfortable when you let someone in this intimate world of yours and that someone starts loving you, with all your flaws or extravagances.
It doesn’t even really matter if you do not show your SECRET self to the rest of the world, but keeping it close to your heart and the ones who love you, showing it off from time to time or whenever you feel like it. But what is indeed important is to keep your SECRET self alive. To not kill it just because you are born in a society that says so. In a world that wants you to act the same as your peers, be the same, look the same and why not feel the same too?
Find Your Frequency
Find that YOU, that wild and untamed self that dances like no one is watching, flying with the speed of light in the colorful universe, brightening up the world and singing in rays of lights. Find your source of energy, your inspiration. Someone told me once that I have a native resistance to the world and that I am not easily influenced. I put a lot of thought in that and then I realized that is because I have my own world very well defined.
I have found my frequency very early on and I know how to shut down the whole world and reach my inspiration, talk with it, enjoy it and then reopen the world when I am ready. Knowing what you need to do to reach that special place is really important. It doesn’t need to be a physical place, it needs to be your own inner world that you can access at any time. The place where you meet your inner child and where you allow yourself to be completely free. Have you found that world?
