As children we do not need resources, we create and imagine what we want. We may draw it or write about it in stories. We may make up games or plays about what we wish to create. As children we don't worry that we might not have the ability to be a astronaut, we just go ahead and land on the moon. Therefore our most deepest wishes and loves are there as a child. We may not have travelled but we already love to sit in a cardboard box and sail to an island. That child becomes our inner child as an adult and stays reminding us in anyway they can of our original loves. This maybe pointing us in the direction of a favourite craft or art or a sudden craving for a particular food. When we ignore the inner child, or perhaps are not even aware of her existence, she will like any child who is ignored find a way to make herself known. This may be through a tantrum, in the form of stress, tears or bring up childhood fears. We can spend time with her, holding her close within our heart, comforting her and letting her know that all is ok, that she is deeply and unconditionally loved and nothing can hurt her.
This inner child is a beautiful and fragile gift. A soul full of wisdom and joy. A soul which reminds us of our higher purpose, that is our ultimate, play, ultimate bliss. We are taught very young that we must make decisions, and separate everything. Instead we can embrace our wholeness, we can embrace all. We can see that there are many ways in which we can follow our bliss. It is good to recognise that a child embraces all of life, they do not limit themselves, they do not need to only play on the trampoline, they can ride a bike, paint a picture sing, dance, make somthing, draw and swim. It is about embracing wholeness, embracing oneness, recognising there are so many things we can do and all we need to do is ' what makes our soul sing and spirit dance'
