- SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
When we get familiar with our Inner Child (our Lower Mental Body), then we can unite the desires of the child with the wisdom of our adult years (our Higher Mental Body), and our behavior, as views from a neutral standpoint, will become much more consistent.
This video has a technique for getting familiar with our Inner Child. There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.
I have a supplemental technique for uniting the Lower Mental Body with the Higher Mental Body. As you may recall, another name for the Lower Mental Body (which is a term of the School of Theosophy) is the ‘inner child’ or the ‘lost child of the Soul’, which is a term from psychology and family counseling.
The idea is to become one. The reason for that is that, unless we are one, we will go through life with inconsistency in our behavior. Our Lower Mental Body, our inner child, will be asking us to behave in one way, and the rational mind … the Higher Mental Body … will demand that we act in another way.
The result will be inconsistent behavior. There will be times when our Lower Mental Body gets the upper hand and acts on its own desires, and other times when the rational mind takes over, like Spock in Star Trek.
When the two are united, the heart center … the center between the two … will become the governing force. The heat will act as one; and we will be able to consistently follow the heart. The heart has the strength of electromagnetic field energy to unite these two, the Lower and the Higher Mental Body.
So that is logic behind the dictum to ‘follow the heart’: It allows us to lead a consistent life, a united and harmonious life.
I thought of another technique to make this happen. This will work if you remember how you looked at the age of one year, two years, five years, eight years … or if you have pictures of that. It is better if you have photos; you can put the photos on your bedroom mirror or on your bathroom mirror and look at them every day; just gaze at the pictures of how you looked at those different ages.
If you do not have photographs you can draw pictures of how you looked, or you can find pictures on the internet that look like that, if they remind you of that at that age. You can put those up on your bedroom mirror or your bathroom mirror, and look at them every day. Maybe every night when you go to sleep would be good; or every morning when you get up.
Sooner or later what that will do is, it will start the remembering of how it was at those different ages, and the remembering of all the unsolved problems and dilemmas of those times. That will come up for solution through the feeling realm. Through the heart, you will come to an understanding of how that was, and how it is today, and how it can all be better.
I hope you like this idea. It is another technique that works very well, I feel.
