Your inner child sees the big picture and doesn't sweat the small stuff.
Your inner child fully uses imagination to find inspired solutions.
Your inner child loves you and wants you to enjoy life and be happy.
The way to heal this beautiful relationship is by picturing what your inner child looks like (often it's you as you were as a young child). Then see your inner child sitting facing you and talk gently to him/her. Tell her/him that you realize you have ignored, neglected, belittled or shamed your little child and would like to make amends now. Ask your child's forgiveness and say that, as of right now, you will acknowledge, love, take care of, ask for advice from and play with your inner child.
Feel the warmth as your heart connects with your inner child's and picture the two of you embracing. Listen to your child's voice as it responds to what you have told him/her. This voice will become your best adviser, for it knows what is true about you at the deepest level. It will bring you insight and perspective about your life and what you are here for.
Connecting with your inner child brings healing to the mind that once was split and joy to the life that once was hopeless.
