How to love your inner child
There's a part of me, my inner child, who SCREAMS OUT,
"Love me, love me, LOVE ME"
to anyone who will listen.
Mostly to the people she respects, admires and depends on.
But what she's really looking for is for ME to love her.
She thinks she needs other people to like her.
To see her.
To praise her.
To approve of her.
To love and adore her.
But what she actually needs is for ME to turn my gaze inward, take her sweet face in my gentle hands and tell her, eyes locked, that I LOVE HER.
I SEE HER
I'M PROUD OF HER
SHE IS WORTHY
SHE IS SACRED
SHE IS SAFE WITH ME
SHE IS LOVED UNCONDITIONALLY
& THERE IS NOTHING SHE CAN DO OR SAY THAT WILL CHANGE THAT
My love is absolute.
So she can
rest her weary head in my lap as I stroke her hair gently and sing to her
While she softly sobs
The pain leaving her body with each tear
And she finally feels safe
SEEN & HONORED.
I've had this conversation with her many times
And I'll continue to have it AS LONG AS IT F8CKING TAKES for every fiber of my being, every cell, to be bathed in so much unconditional love that all the old programs disintegrate and this sweet, kind hearted, beautiful baby girl feels safe enough to come home.
To melt back into my body
To fill the hole in my heart
To reintegrate so that we are ONE.
As Mother AND child.
This is what I teach others to do.
Do you know how to have this conversation?
If you don't yet know, it's okay, you're not doing anything wrong
No one taught you how to CHOOSE love
But I will
I'll teach you everything I know
So you can choose love for you too
If you're ready
Are you ready?
