Daily Draw - Inner Child

 Daily Draw - Inner Child

Message - "Allow me to give compassion and love to that little one. Let me attend to its deepest needs and feelings."

This card is a simple beauty. The center of the card is where our eyes are directed. There is a small person sitting in the center of a plant. Nestled inside. Resting. Perhaps hiding. They are surrounded by assorted flowers and colors. The predominate one being a deep indigo. The color of our third eye chakra. This is the center of intuition, well being and perception. This position can imply introversion, sensitivity and shyness, and a desire to protect oneself. In yoga Fetal pose relaxes the mind and body and creates a sense of security.

Zen Master Thay wrote the following in his book "The Art of Communicating"

"Every one of us has a wounded child within who needs our care and love. But we run away from our inner child because we're afraid of the suffering. In addition to listening to others with compassion, we must also listen to the wounded child inside us. "

When we pull this card, we are reminded that inside every single one of us is a child who may have grown up without the support they needed. Today when we practice negative self talk, we are treating that child the same way. We need to learn to nurture that child. Give it praise, love it and cherish it. We need to be that love that we did not have when we were growing and developing.

What's happening in your life today that has left you feeling in a negative way. Sad? Lonely? Misunderstood? Unhappy? Each of those things can be reversed by you. Take some time to spend with your inner child. Buy them gifts, take them out for walk. Let them know, let yourself know, it is ok. They are not alone and they -- YOU -- are loved.
