Most of us carry within our solar plexus a wounded child. As little children most of us were not given the type of love we were looking for, that unconditional love. We realized at a very early age that we could not be ourselves but had to conform to what was expected of us in order to be received by our guardians, our family, and our community. As a result we have been carrying around some very deep wounds.
We have been in the process of reparenting that little child within us. With the assistance of our divine selves we are providing for that little child the unconditional love that it always desired.
In this way, we assist the magical child to re-emerge, the little one who sees the world with fresh new eyes.
But meanwhile, as we release our ancestors and our past, which we are doing as part of our transformation from human to divine human, we may notice that our inner child does not want to let go of its family. It wants to stay tethered to the only family it knew, even if that family inadvertently wounded that child deeply. In spite of the often difficult conditions, it’s the only family he knows. Outside of that family she does not feel safe.
So can we have the deepest compassion for that little one? Can we allow him to just stay as long as he needs to with that family. Let her be with them until she feels safe enough to come to you. And just tell her that you love her deeply, that you are devoted to her and only her, and that you will be there to provide him with everything he needs. That you will give her the best of everything that life has to offer. That she is worthy just as she is.
Tell her that you will not push her to do anything she is not ready to do. But that you are there whenever she needs you. If he just wants to talk to you, you are there. If she wants to share her tears, if she just wants a hug, you are there.
And you could also tell him that he could always go back to visit his family anytime he wants to. But it will be from a very different place. You will know the best time to tell her this. You will know when she’s ready to hear this. There is no hurry. Be as gentle as possible with this little child within you.
And in this way, this child will, in its own time, come to you and tell you that it is ready. You will know this by how you feel inside. You will begin to feel more carefree. You will begin to feel light and playful. Remember, there’s nothing to overcome and there is no pushing in any of this. The greatest transformation comes from loving and accepting ourselves just as we are.
