Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Imagine yourself sitting in a peaceful place, surrounded by a warm, loving energy. This is a safe space, a place where you can connect with your Inner Child.
As you sit here, allow yourself to feel any emotions that may come up. Notice any tension or tightness in your body, and gently breathe into those areas, allowing them to release.
Now, visualize your Inner Child. See them as a younger version of yourself, full of innocence and wonder. Look at them with eyes of compassion, and embrace them with love.
Tell your Inner Child that they are loved and cherished, that they are deserving of all the good things in life. Remind them that they are not responsible for the traumas of the past, and that they are safe now.
As you connect with your Inner Child, notice any limiting beliefs that may be present. Perhaps you have been carrying the belief that you don’t deserve to be loved, or that you are not worthy of happiness.
Acknowledge these beliefs, but don’t let them define you.
Remember that they are simply thoughts, and that you have the power to shift them.
Take a moment to reflect on all the ways in which you are deserving of love.
Think about your strengths, your passions, and all the qualities that make you unique.
Know that you are lovable, simply because you exist.
Now, imagine wrapping your Inner Child in a warm, comforting embrace. Feel the love and compassion flowing between the two of you. Tell your Inner Child that you will always be there for them, that you will protect and nurture them.
As you come out of this meditation, carry this loving energy with you. Remember that you are deserving of love and compassion, and that you have the power to heal and grow. Treat yourself with kindness and care, and know that you are worthy of all the good things in life.
If you want to address your Inner Child directly, here is the mediation for you:
Dear … (use your name or the pet name your family gave you when you were little),
I want you to know that you are loved and cherished, just as you are. You are innocent and beautiful, and you deserve to be happy and safe.
I understand that you have been through a lot of pain and trauma, and I want to offer you my compassion and support.
You don’t have to carry the burden of those experiences alone.
It’s okay to feel scared or sad, but know that you are not alone. I am here with you, and I will always protect and nurture you.
You may have been carrying the belief that you don’t deserve to be loved, but that’s not true. You are lovable, simply because you exist. You have strengths and passions that make you unique, and those are the qualities that make you worthy of love and compassion.
I want you to know that you are not responsible for the traumas of the past. You are safe now, and you don’t have to live in fear anymore.
So, take a deep breath and feel the warmth of my love and compassion. Let go of any tension or tightness in your body, and allow yourself to relax.
You are loved, and you are deserving of all the good things in life. I will always be here for you, no matter what.
With love and compassion,
Your Higher Self
