Being You: Are you open to the possibilities?

Are you always exploring what life has to offer? The world is full of potential. Making choices is the only way to benefit from it. If you just celebrate the possibilities you may never accomplish what you’re here to do. It’s hard to stay focused when there’s always so much more to explore. The best way to approach your never-ending curiosity is to slow down and think about the impact you want to have.

That trickster who is always ready with another joke is probably a child of Esu. Esus can seem immature, and unfocused. They are really about exploring possibilities. Their intense curiosity and quick minds allow them to learn just about anything. They can open you up to potential that you didn’t know you have.

Do you know someone who moves through the world with child-like enthusiasm. They are always looking for new things to learn and explore. They seem to embody wisdom and innocence at the same time. They are always ready to hit you with a practical joke. You’ve just been touched by a child of Esu. Perhaps you are one yourself.

Many people over-focus on the child-like nature of this energy. It is really about limitless curiosity and potential. It can be difficult to stay focused when you see possibility all around you. Esus can use their powerful curiosity to dive into a subject with zeal. They can show us the potential in a situation even when we feel hopeless.

The world has so much to offer. It can be difficult to stay still when you might miss something interesting. As an Esu your powerful curiosity and boundless energy can be hard to contain. If you can engage for long enough you have what it takes to learn anything. You can bring the excitement of newness into dull situations. You can show us all the possibilities that we are missing.

I love the Esus in my life because they inspire me to see what can be. They are always on the move. They are enthusiastic about taking you on a journey with them. It can be hard to get their attention, but, once you have it,  they can explore you with intimidating intensity. They can inspire laughter and hope. If you feel stuck an Esu can help you find a way out of any situation. If you have reached the end of your rope a child of Esu can show you the potential solutions to any problem.

Have you ever seen an Esu chasing delightedly after something? Did you try to catch up and follow them on their quest? Perhaps you think that you’re a child of Esu. I’m interested in knowing why, or why not.
