Want to Know How to Travel Like a Kid This Summer?

Do you remember what it was like to travel like a kid? What if the kid within could trigger the nonphysical mind, the essential you, your genuine, true Self? Have we become so rigid in our adult ways, stubbornly thinking I can’t see it, so how can it be? We’ve lost our imaginations. Why not travel like a child who believes, “I’ve imagined it; therefore it is.”

Looking back, do you envy those carefree summer days filled with tree-climbing, deep-diving, berry-pickin’ funsters having the best time without a care in the world. Summer was like a treasure awaiting discovery. Hah, it’s what your soul desires for you every day!

You might not realize this but traveling like a kid is one of the best ways to get to your essential self, the truth of who you really are. Today, I want to invite the kid in YOU to come out and play by learning more about the soul-inspired personality type. The one you had as a child. It came from pure consciousness, connected to the non-physical, and hadn’t yet established the fear-conditioned mind.

Personality Typing Helps Unpack the Kid in You

What would you give to unpack the authentic KID in you on your next vacation? You know, the “real” you, not the established adult, with expected presets. What I’m saying is the ego or fear-conditioned self. That tells us we can’t and why we can’t; too old or young, not good enough or worthy enough; don’t have the money, and so you won’t… The expectations that say; I’ll believe when I see it.

A New Manifesto: Choose to Believe it Before You See It

Choose to believe it before you see it manifesto, is one of the many reasons I’m expanding the 16 personality archetypes to include a study of the nonphysical self – a spiritual understanding. I find the psychology of personality typing is essential in knowing the essence of who you really are. When you add in the spiritual personality typing, you begin to see the role of the non-physical self, spirit, soul, and higher self as part of the human experience.

This new way of thinking may bring about a new way of thinking about yourself; you are a physical self with a spiritual being. This is essentially you, the True Self, the truth of who you are. It’s the authentic kid with an unconditioned mind seeking fun and possibilities. A kid is curious and accepting in the moment. Are you ready to start embracing this childlike mindset as an adult?

Evolving is Always a Part of the Spiritual Journey

Now, I’m not saying you’ll learn about spiritual personality typing, and BAM, your adult CRAP is gone. It doesn’t work that way. It’s not a magic pill. You have to do the work and become aware. Once you’re aware, the unconscious can’t stay hidden anymore. My goal is to open the door, to let the summer breezes flow, to get you thinking about personality type in a whole new way. It’s a tool to use to unlock buried fears and sabotaging patterns. It’s a modern take on the 1950s career typing and highly relevant to the Aquarian Age.

– What if YOU knew what TRIGGERED YOU — those fear-based habits, and beliefs that are ready to release, and you have the power to let all of it go. Isn’t that exciting?

– What if YOU could stop getting frustrated with your partner who wants to stay put by the pool? Listen, when you accept all aspects of self, the love and the fear we all share, it’s so much easier to accept others.

– What if YOU could embrace YOU and know that it’s ok to take me time to recharge or take a solo side adventure to enjoy time being with yourself?

Want to Know How to Travel Like a Kid This Summer?

A childlike personality type is a match to the personality type you had as a kid. Your human, logical mind as a youngster was unestablished, pure, and without fear. A childlike mind is an ideal personality stage. Why? It closely identifies with the non-physical aspect of your beingness, your spiritual self, because it’s without conditioning, false beliefs, and fear ⏤ low vibrational energy.

You see, the human self is centered in the physical world, the logical, reasoned mind which has to see it to believe it. The reasoned mind identifies through the five senses. It’s what many of us rely upon without giving much thought to our beingness; our high self, the soul, our unlimited spirit.

As a human being, you oppose yourself to evolve yourself. It’s the law of polarity and Newton’s Third Law of Motion, which describes this law to a T, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

The Nonphysical the Childlike You

Our beingness, which is nonphysical, is the unseen aspect accessible to the human self; hunches, instincts, intentions, synchronicities… Those who are in touch with this side of themselves manifest easier than others who aren’t because they believe it before they see it. They’ll make decisions based on illogical reasoning. It’s the nonphysical self communicating in the physical realm.

As a child, you accepted the nonphysical aspects as part of who you are. As an adult, this connection is often disconnected!

I see it therefore I believe or I believe and therefore I see

Example of a Hiccupy Travel Situation

Here’s an example. Let’s say you’re flight gets canceled. Most of us get worked up in the physical realm. Our minds become a tangled mess, and in the moment, we look externally for answers. We see canceled flights, or we realize we will miss our connecting flight. So we run like maniacs trying and catch another flight. Been there, done that. In this instance, you’re drawing from external energy, which we can plainly see is not giving us a solution. Instead, it feeds our fear-based energy with, what will go wrongwill.

Now, if you’re connected to the nonphysical, you’re grounded in reality, realizing the plane isn’t going to be on time. But instead of going down the road of what isn’t, you start looking for what is. First, you may say a quick prayer or meditation, asking for guidance. Then, because you believe it before you see it, you already know everything will work out as it’s supposed to, or maybe even better.

Coming from the mind of all-knowing, you can now access your personality type’s superpowers. Your mind is clear and more relaxed, allowing you to take inspired actions. It’s in this relaxed state of being where we can use the strength of the personality type more constructively, with clarity and confidence versus a negative and stressed mind.

God’s Three Answers to Your Prayer:


Not Yet,

I have something better in mind.

Getting Back to Your Essential Self

My goal is to bring you back to your essential self, your truth. Traveling like a kid can start the awakening process. As a child, we are highly tuned into the nonphysical world and open to what’s ahead in the physical world; living in the moment. I want YOU to let go of the beliefs that no longer serve you and accept your truths, the good and not so good, to determine your genuine travel desires.

The best way to get back to the kid in you is to peel away some of the things you were conditioned to be as a child. Try to remember what really annoyed you about taking family vacations. A few examples of things that may have and still are influencing you:

  • I was never allowed to be by myself. I was forced to be included in all of the family activities,
  • My Dad loved to fish, but I wanted to be part of the volleyball game or involved in some other group sport,
  • We always seemed to vacation at very touristy places. It was so noisy and overwhelming,
  • I just wanted to be doing new things all the time, but no, I was told we had to stick to family traditions,
  • I always wanted just our family to vacation together. Still, my mom always invited other neighbors and their families, it was too much for me, and I never really enjoyed those summer vacations.

The Gifts of Summer Days

What if you embrace your travel desires? With this understanding, you realize the importance of your desires. Would it be easier, now that you know, to also honor your travel companion’s desires instead of getting frustrated? Everyone’s needs are important. It’s a matter of acceptance.

Enjoy summer in all of her glory. It’s a gift, just like YOU, that has so much to offer. Linger in longer days, warm seas, and the sweet, juicy fruits of the season. We need to bask in the glow of these 90 days in a world where 24/7 communication is normal, horrific news reports are steady, and over-scheduled lives keep us on the run.

Go Ahead and Embrace YOUR Kid-Loving Personality. It’s Here You’ll Find the Real Treasures of Summer.

  • A healthy personality type helps unpack the kid in you, relaxing into the space of who you really are,
