Inner Child Meditation
Deep within each of us lives the child we once were.
For most of us, our inner child lies hidden beneath the layers that
we've put on in order to become adults. In our rush to put on grown-up
clothing and live adult lives, we may have forgotten the wisdom and
innocence that we possessed when we were children. In meditation, we can
connect with our inner child and reclaim what we have forgotten.
You can start by finding a photo of yourself as a
child that you can look at for a few moments. School photos often work
well to help you connect with this part of you. Sit in a relaxed position,
close your eyes, and start taking deep breaths. Set the intention that
you are going to connect with your inner child. Wait for an image of
yourself as a child to appear in your mind's eye. See your grown-up self
hugging your inner child. Listen to what your inner child has to say.
Perhaps your inner child wants to give you the answer to a question that
you've been mulling over. After all, you never needed to look outside
yourself when you were a child to know how you felt or what was true for
you. You always knew the answers. There also may be an ache from a
childhood wound that you can now heal by talking to your inner child and
offering them the wisdom and perspective that comes with maturity. Or
maybe you've merely forgotten how to see the world with childlike wonder
and hope! , and your inner child would like you to remember how. Tell
your inner child that you love them and will keep them safe. Embrace your
inner child and tell them that you are always there for them. Allow
your inner child to always be there for you.
Connecting to your inner child in with meditation is
a very useful tool, but you can also connect with your inner child even
when you aren't in meditation. Treat yourself to a play date, ice
cream, or a walk in the park. Let yourself laugh and play more. Give
yourself permission to be as wise as your inner child so you can stop focusing
on what isn't important and start living as if every moment is
precious. Your life will be filled with more laughter and fun.
