365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 212: Abandoned Inner Child

inner child

Our emotions are a sounding board, a barometer for how aligned we are with our inner essence. Our true essence is fearless, powerful, expanded, generous and magnificent.

When we feel small, afraid and powerless it is because part of our connection with the true essence of who we are has been turned off.

Unfortunately, most people have had this connection turned off as children and they carry their wounds and pain with them wherever they go. As they hide their pain and do not acknowledge their Inner Child’s need to be rescued, nurtured and loved, the wounded Inner Child ends up dictating their life.

Louise Hay says:

“IT DOESN’T MATTER how old you are, there is a little child within who needs love and acceptance. If you’re a woman, no matter how self-reliant you are, you have a little girl who’s very tender and needs help. If you’re a man, no matter how macho you are, you still have a little boy inside who craves warmth and affection. 

As children, when something went wrong, we tended to believe that there was something wrong with us. Children develop the idea that if they could only do it right, then parents and caregivers would love them, and they wouldn’t punish them. In time, the child believes, ‘There is something wrong with me. I’m not good enough’. As we grow older, we carry these false beliefs with us. We learn to reject ourselves.”

Would you take a moment and connect with that part of you we call the Inner Child?

Would you be willing to talk to your Inner Child, bring ease to him/her, talk to him/her as you would to any frightened child that has been hurt?

If you saw a child crying in a corner, abandoned and afraid, you wouldn’t just walk by and do nothing, would you?
