We all have an inner child which lives within us. The child loves to play, be spontaneous and have fun. As adults we are often so busy with our lives that we forget or dismiss this important part of ourselves. The child likes to feel safe and be nurtured. You can do this by finding out what activities you find enjoyable, fun or nurturing. Perhaps it's crafts or gardening? A hot bath and time to enjoy it may be the answer for you Certain people are good to be with as you feel uplifted when you see them. Certain places too can be uplifting and nurturing, feeding you and your inner child. Time on your own when you can connect to your core self, the person, is important. otherwise we look track of who we are. I enjoy going to the beach as I find it soothing. Building sand castles is also fun. Using the swings at a local park or the sea-saw is fun for your inner child as well. A simple walk in the park can be enough to feed your child within. When your child feels scared, reassurance is needed from your adult self. Creating a wise person to come in within your mind to nurture and protect your inner child can help. You can then gain a perspective on your current situation and give a more reasoned response.
