Who’s Driving Your Car?

Hey baby, it’s going to be a great day.

But before you head out, decide “who is going to drive my car today?”

Most of the time these days, we are on auto-pilot, meaning we are not at all awake, nor are we aware of most of the choices we make.

Often times, the part of us who is making these unconscious decisions is a much younger version of ourselves.

Sometimes it is an infantile part.

Sometimes a toddler.

Sometimes a prepubescent tween.

Sometimes an adolescent.

You know what can happen when those younger parts of ourselves are in the driver’s seat.

We act out, we yell at our kids, we over-eat, we over-drink, we complain, we have affairs, we take dangerous risks…

Please be gentle with this younger you.

Don’t be mad at her for acting her age.

Don’t shut him out for reacting in the only way he knows how.

Instead, love this vulnerable younger Child Self.

Kindly and lovingly, remove her from the front seat.

Tenderly and patiently, strap him in to his car seat.

Safe now.  Under the care of your loving Adult Self.

This is how to heal: love and tend to all the aspects of your wonderful self.

Oh, and remember:

I am brilliant;

I am magnificent;

I am a being of Love and Light.

I am here to bring my Essence Self to every experience of my Life.

  1. Dear Carol-
    I am finding that this time of the year just beckons my “younger self” to act out! Only know with the awareness you have given me, I am able to comfort her and to recognize just what is going on. I am much gentler with the “adult Patty” as a result. It’s a win-win! Now I breathe – let those painful or negative thoughts pass through me and reach out to something that soothes rather than punishes. Wishing you the Happiest New Year Ever. Much Love, Patty

      My dear Patty,

      I love that you are now “reaching out to something that soothes rather than punishes…” This is exactly the path of health and and comfort that will heal all the wounded parts of you…Sending so much love back to you…Carol
