Guest blog about playfulness by Karina Ladet
Today I have the immense pleasure to be writing to you in the lovely Lisa’s beautiful online space. Lisa and I met many years ago and she was my first spiritual teacher online.
One of the greatest lessons I’ve learnt when it comes to spiritual practice – and something I often remind my clients of too – is that it doesn’t have to be so serious!
I am deeply dedicated to Spirit and honour this connection with all my heart. But sometimes when we get too caught up in being «good girls» we forget that connecting with Spirit and our intuition can also include elements of playfulness.
If you find yourself being stuck in a rut and your list of to-dos is getting boring I invite you to come and play.
What if connecting with the Divine could be easy and joyful?
Some of my favourite ways to let go of my old habits and invite more playfulness is to:
Start your day by dancing to music you’ve never danced to before. Get your crayons or paint out and let your imagination guide you. Connect with your heart and sing the sounds it wishes to express. Let your creativity lead the way and have fun!

It’s so much easier to connect with Spirit in nature. Take a walk and focus on being fully present both in your own body and with your surroundings. Open your eyes and let your intuition guide you. If you feel like hugging a tree – do! And if you feel the call from Mother Earth then lie down and breathe with her. Anything goes. Nature is the mother of playfulness.
Move your body
When you feel stuck in your own head or overwhelmed by too many feelings moving your body is a great way to shift your energy. Find ways to move that you enjoy and don’t be afraid to try new ones. How about finally signing up for that climbing class or finding the hula hoop hidden in your basement? You don’t have to be good at it – only willing to give it a try.
Sign up for a workshop
Keep learning new things and if you’re a spiritual teacher it’s inspiring to attend someone else’s classes. Allow yourself to be guided and enjoy the ride.
Do some journaling
Take a moment to connect with your heart and ask your spirit guides or angels to speak through you. When you switch off your mind for a moment and allow your intuition to flow freely miracles happen. You can ask questions or just let whatever you need to hear come through.
Spend your day with a child
Children are amazing at being present and finding joy everywhere. Have fun and do all the silly, hilarious things you enjoyed doing as a child. Give yourself a break from being an adult and let your inner child go crazy.
I hope these ideas inspire you and help you find new ways of connecting with Spirit and also with your own creative source. Have fun with this and use play to release any old patterns and invite a new way of being into your life.
Remember that you are free
You make up your own rules and you are free to change them when they no longer suit you. Life is all about growth and expansion so make sure you enjoy this beautiful ride.
Everything you need is right inside you.
