The Game of Otherness

sherry child (2)See this little girl? She has been crying out to me for a while, trying hard to get my attention, but I’ve been too busy. I look away, brush her aside and say, “Maybe later, sweetie.” I do my best to ignore her, after all, what can I do? Too much time has gone by….the damage is done. But still she waits. I look deep into those eyes and feel the sadness there….the fear, and I say, “I wish I could help you, but I cannot. Don’t you see how busy I am? And it’s fruitless, there’s no changing things now.” She tries to hide behind that Mona Lisa smile, but I know better. I know only too well how frightened she is.

Why am I trying so hard to ignore her? Well that’s easy to figure out…..I didn’t want to face it…..face the pain I knew I’d find there. She feels abandoned…..alone and lost. She craves comforting and love. Someone to wrap their arms around her and tell her it’s all going to be just fine- that she’s safe and no harm will come to her. She needs me, but I wasn’t sure I could be the one to make it all better. Wasn’t there someone else more qualified? What good would it do now anyway?!

I couldn’t escape her. Her sadness became a part of me and her fear became my fear. I’d hear her whispering, telling her favorite tree of her concerns. Then she would laugh….laughter that sounded a lot like the tinkling of wind chimes in the distance and my heart would almost burst with love for her. One day I got up the nerve to ask her why she was so afraid and I held my breath as I waited for the answer. “I’m lost,” came the timid response. “I want to go home.”

There! I knew it! It was too much, it was beyond my ability to help her. What she wanted, I could not give. I felt the despair and it was suffocating….I didn’t want her to continue to suffer. I realized I had no choice- I’d hidden from this long enough. The time had come for her to be healed and I was the only one who could bring that about, but could I really find it within me to offer reassurance to her….could I really tell her that it was okay, that she was safe? She would know if I lied.

She had been seeking safety and completion from the moment she came onto this planet. She felt as if she’d been torn from the arms of her most loving mother and tossed into the abyss. What was this strange and cold world she found herself living in? Her love and reverence for the planet was almost unbearable. The trees and rocks were sacred to her and they became her companions and confidants. Why didn’t the others- those who looked like her, but were so indifferent to the beauty and breath of the planet see that all was alive and part of the All that Is.

I knew her fear….we all do to some extent or another. It is the same pain carried within each and every one of us. The sadness, the feeling of helplessness and futility….homesick for a world that we barely remember. We all have that big empty place within us that is meant to be filled with love, appreciation and acceptance.

I had to find a way to help her. It had to be the truth- I knew she would not settle for platitudes or excuses. And so I went on a quest. A journey to find the answers- she deserved that much. It took a long time. I looked everywhere; from the great religions of the world to tarot cards, from wise masters of life to psychics. And then I found it….in the least likely place of all….within me.

I found the Divine residing within me, buried under all the fear, all the lies, all the pain….all the guilt. I found God where She had always been. She hadn’t been hiding, She had just been waiting patiently for me to come home to myself.

I turned to the little girl and I looked into her eyes and told her how much she was loved. Eternally loved. Beyond belief loved!! And then I let her know she was safe. Her safety was in her innocence- she didn’t need to worry for herself or her beloved Gaia, it was all good. I explained to her how she had chosen, as a soul, while in the safe embrace of her Creator, to experience otherness. Something other than a world of pure love and so she had come into a world where she would temporarily forget who she was. She would go “behind the veil” and not remember her true origin or her divine nature. She would experience contrast– choosing to know fear in order to better understand love. She understood. She remembered that this was true….and, after all, hadn’t the trees been telling her this very same thing?

Turns out it is never too late to heal that frightened, sad and abandoned child within us. We don’t need to go on a quest. We just need to sit in silence and allow the truth of our Being to whisper to us, telling us of our Divine Nature. Our connection to Source cannot be broken. We can believe we are abandoned, but in truth it is us who has abandoned God through our forgetfulness….our free will choice to know otherness. When you feel the pain of your Inner Child, know that you have the wisdom and tools to heal her. The pain is there to remind you that it is time to awaken. Time to come home to yourself….forgive/let go of all the supposed wrongs and evils you believe others have done to you. You are the Divine. You are here to discover the truth. There is nothing to fear, no place to long for and no lack of love in your life. You hold it all within you….the very place our loving Father/Mother God put it for us to discover….just as soon as we were done playing our game of otherness.

  1. Dear Sherry,

    I can’t tell you how timely this article is for me. It touches me so deeply and I feel like you are speaking for so many of us who have felt frightened and weary for so long. We have all the love we need in our lives is so true and you’ve reminded us so beautifully here.

    Much love to you,

  2. Thank you Carol for taking the time to write. I am so happy the article resonated with you! It is easy to fall under the spell of the illusions, right? Love & Blessings to you~ Sherry

  3. Wonderful, your writing continues to be poignant and resonating. I look forward to reading your posts immensely. I have similarly worked with my young self, I believe it is almost like time travel (and it may actually be so). The significance of that type of healing cannot be underestimated. I am a student of Adyashanti, I know you like him, too. Be well!

    • I also believe it is a form of time travel….time being only an illusion of the lower dimensions. I actually remember as a young child feeling these surges of love flow through me and knew, on a deep level, it was my future self extending that healing energy. I felt so protected and safe when that would occur- it made a huge difference for me.
      Thank you for writing. I appreciate hearing from you Rich.

  4. Sherry, I saw you last year at the Transformation Conference in Springdale. I enjoyed listening to you and I bought your book. I enjoyed reading it and I am grateful that you wrote your book! Thank you so much for sharing your story!!!! Much love and many blessings to you!!!

  5. Sherrie, I have been listening to your book on Audible and I want to Thank You for having the courage to allow it to be published. In a world where fear is so prevalent and image has been pushed ahead of truth your openness will have a huge impact, it has for me. It will help to give courage to those of us who are raising our vibration and remembering who we are. We have to be patient with our loved ones who have forgotten and haven’t made the step to surrender.

    Love, Ted.

  7. Hi Sherry, heard you the other night on rense radio show, very interesting info, thanks. I had my own awakening moment back in 2009, I been seeing UFOs for years now and had personal experiences with them. Your info just furthers my belief and that there are Starseeds here, including myself, trying to help the planet out of these troubled times. Thank you.

  8. Hi Sherry,
    This is so beautifully written, I can’t wait to read your book ‘The Forgotten Promise: Rejoining Our Cosmic Family’
    I had a massive spiritual awakening in 2011, without trying to, I was completely blind and I wasn’t searching for fulfillment, so I am still not sure why I had such a powerful awakening, I truly felt the earth move, the grass grow and everything became so beautiful, like my black and white world had suddenly turned into colour, so very colourful and the joy and happiness I felt, my heart was beating so fast at times, I felt so happy I thought maybe I would die really it was so intense.
    I slept for weeks with my arms outstretched toward the heavens and felt so much love all around me, it was like I was in another dimension, everyone around me noticed the change in my appearance, mannerisms even my voice toned down and became softer and I was filled with so much wisdom about the planet. Prior to this awakening and encounter with God I didn’t believe in God or anything really but I feel so much love from God. I continue to grow spiritually and I know I have so much to learn here.
    Today whilst out walking, I saw a jet flying toward me, pumping out it’s poison, without thinking I immediately applied (what I had learned you did, from watching your video on chemtrails, just last night) so much love directed toward the jet, then I turned around and another jet was flying in the opposite direction, I applied the same to this jet, sending out so much love from inside me out toward the jet, picturing as you did, the pilot, the sky was so blue and the sun shining brightly and at the time flying above me and circling me was so many birds, so many I lost count after 20, white and many black coloured birds, I couldn’t make out what type of birds they were but they were squawking loudly…well, I looked toward where the first jet was and it had vanished and the chemtrail, the same with the other jet, replaced were fluffy white clouds and the birds had flown off!
    Amazing, powerful experience but what amazes me more is my calmness, I wasn’t overcome or shouting out loud & excited, which I thought I would do…wow amazing so thank you so much, you are such an inspiration and I thank you so much for posting the video in which you said you didn’t want to make at first.
    Universe fractals are incredibly complex things, spreading over multiple dimensions and spiritual realms, and I look forward to exploring this universe and other realms and to find my spiritual guides, I saw as a little girl but am hoping to connect with them again soon and find what place and work I have to do here.
    when I saw you in one of your videos, I felt I knew instinctive atmosphere or quality seems to surround you I saw beautiful colourful auras all around you.
    Blessings and may lots of joy be showered on you, continue to shine your light,.. thanks again. 😉

    • This was so wonderful for me to read….I savored it. Thank you for taking the time to write and share your story & experiences! So inspiring!! You lifted my heart! Much Love to You~ Sherry
