Your Inner Prostitute Child Teaches You Faith

Prostitute Inner Child?

Stay with me on this. You’ll learn a different perspective of the word ‘prostitute.’

We all have a Prostitute Inner Child that is there to teach us faith. Most people think that inner voice always tempting us to do the wrong thing is bad. It’s actually there to protect us and strengthen our faith.

By understanding this important part of our inner mind and heart, we can step back from making a poor choice and opt to select the strengthen our faith.

Free touches

Have you ever had someone hold the door open for you or let you into traffic? Certainly you’ve allowed someone in line before you at a checkout stand because they only had a few items. How about touching someone on the shoulder as you just expressed a simple, “Thank you?!”

The best is a kind smile while passing by a stranger.

The human connection is free and probably holds the most value in our lives. It lets us know that we are human and part of a greater plan of life to coexist in peace and harmony.

As you think about it, perhaps those things that are of the greatest value are free.

Seems like a good way to do business too.

 

Searching for people to join with you?

When I was a boy I used to see hitchhikers all over the place. When our family drove from Las Vegas to Clinton, Oklahoma to visit grandma and grandpa you’d see hitchhikers all the way there.

How did I know they were hitchhiking? Of course they had their thumb sticking out.

But I also knew where they were headed because they held up a cardboard sign.

If we were headed to Oklahoma it wouldn’t make sense to pick up one going to Montana. It would be bad for both of us.

Starting over at age 72

A dear friend reached out to me. He said something I taught in a recent presentation he attended touched him. “I need to talk” he said.

The crutch of the conversation was that he was scared. He was uncertain.

Truthfully, he was facing a demon that has been with him since childhood.

As I asked him questions and shared some stories he made the biggest affirmation to me. He said, “I don’t know the answers anymore and I’m not sure I ever did.”

I’ve discovered that when I lived my life though the prism of pride, I only thought I knew the answers. Honestly, I’m scared too. I realize now that I don’t have any answers either. But, like my friend, I affirm openly that I don’t have any answer.

I reassured my friend that knowing he doesn’t have the answer will lead him now to ask. To take each day, one at a time. I believe the answers are always inside of each of us. While we don’t always see them on our time frame (the pride thing), they will always be revealed to us.

I believe God did make me in His image. Because of that, as I love myself as God loves me, unconditionally, He’ll ALWAYS reveal the answers to me. He’ll even reveal answers to me if I don’t unconditionally love myself. God is way cool that way!

I hugged my friend as we concluded and we expressed our love for each other. He said he felt better and now can see some light to start over.

I asked him if he unconditionally loved himself. He’ll have to explore that questions because that’s one he hasn’t been able to answer yet.

It will come. He’s a good person as I think all people are. Pride gets in the way of humility. Of being authentic. He is humble now. He wasn’t judging himself. He wasn’t judging others (at least not as much as he used to).

For me, I don’t have any answers. I do have lots of questions though. I’m scared to know that too yet I’m beginning to understand to trust my Creator to give me the answers when I’m ready to receive them.
