Friday Inspiration - 5 March 2010
By Melissa Bult
 
Play Time
 

Over the weekend I attended a wonderful women’s gathering/retreat and the theme involved ‘playing.’  We did some fantastic activities to bring out fun and play and encourage joy.  It reminded me of just how important fun and play are and so that is what I want to talk about today.

When I asked the angels at the beginning of the year what some of the major themes were, a big one was more fun and joy in our lives.  They explained to me that we do not always have to be so serious about everything and throwing ourselves into healing, personal development and our spiritual paths does not mean letting go of fun.

With all that is happening in the world at the moment it can look pretty dark and depressing at times and fun and play can end up being the last thing on our minds.  But joy is one of the most essential healing tools we have.  When you feel joyful and think positive and happy thoughts your energy becomes lighter, you literally lighten-up and you then project that energy out into the world. 

As we know the energy we project out into the world contributes to the overall energy on the planet.  If you spend all your time worrying or focusing on the negative then that is what you will end up contributing to.  Fun and play can be one of the most healing things you can do for yourself and the whole of humanity. 

Laughter and joy is infectious.  I do not know many people who can stay down and out when they are surrounded by happy people or doing fun things.  It can be as simple as singing, dancing, watching a funny movie, going to the park or beach, swimming, talking with friends, getting creative or reading a good book. 

They way you choose to play, is entirely up to you but what is important is that you make time for it.  We are so busy these days and I know I am guilty of putting fun last on my list of priorities.  But we are always brighter, healthier and more alive when we have more fun. 

Maybe you did not have the opportunity to play as a child or you feel that you are too ‘old’ to play now but it is never to late to learn how to play.  You could spend time with children, go to a fun park, attend a concert, have a party or join an acting class. 

Why not plan something you have never done before?  Or you could have an adventure or do something you use to enjoy or wanted to do as a child like have a theme party, finger paint, draw pictures, play a sport for fun, bake cupcakes, have a water fight or play dress ups. 

Make a vow to not take everything so seriously all the time and learn to laugh at the little things.  Be spontaneous more often, hug people, play loud music and sing in the car, dance like no one can see or learn how to dance, say things people do not expect you to say (I always find that one fun) and stop putting off doing something you have always wanted to do. 

Whatever you do make more time for fun and play because the joy you feel will lift the vibration of the planet and it most certainly needs the lift right now.   Get your friends together and make it your mission to have fun for the greater good.  Stop putting it off and make a date with your inner child today!

Love and blessings
