PathForward welcomes you to tune out the noises of the day and tune in to our tranquil guided mediation series, The Mindful Path. Breathe in, breathe out and let’s begin.
We all have an inner child that's still alive and viewing our adult lives through a childlike filter. This is the younger you that first came into awareness in this lifetime. Sometimes the relationship we have with this first awareness, first breathe, first smile, first blink, is not always the healthiest. This meditation will help you to honor and heal your inner child. You will establish a healthier relationship with it.
It's Halo and I'm here to support you through a guided meditation. Today we are focusing on the inner child. We all have an inner child. That is the you that first came into awareness in this lifetime. And sometimes the relationship we have with this first awareness is not always the healthiest. This meditation will help you to honor your inner child by reaching into the deepest parts of your hearts to bring through true, pure, unconditional love.
Let's start by just hugging ourselves. Wrap your arms around your torso. Have the intention of working with your inner self from a place that is already kind, warm and caring. And then relax your arms. Place them where ever is most comfortable and verbally or telepathically, state to your inner child that: "It has permission to communicate with you. That it has permission to bring all of itself to the forefront. This is a safe environment. You will not judge, you just intend to love."
And when you are ready, you're going to ask your inner child, what it would have you know. What it wants to share with you. And then just listen. Whatever comes up, comes up. You are just in a state of awareness, being perceptive.
And when you're ready you're going to ask, what is ready to be healed? And allow you inner child to show you what it is ready to heal. It might be a hurtful word somebody said, a hurtful action or inaction, a misunderstanding, a disappointment. Whatever it is you're not going to now address that hurt so that it can heal. And the adult you is going to ask it's higher self, it's higher awareness "what would heal this hurt?"
And when the answer comes through, provide that to your inner child.
And if you're still unsure on exactly what to do, here are some suggestions. Go back to any moment where you were hurt, where you were disappointed, where you were confused and see and feel and hear things unfolding differently. Play out the memory, the scene in the way you wished, hoped it would have gone. Or, you can simply tell your inner child what it needed to hear. So the situation still unfolds, but then you soothe yourself, you give yourself a hug, a kiss. Whatever you feel like you need to do in order to help the inner child understand, be heard and be healed, go ahead and do that right now. Allow yourself to process your emotions. Tell your inner child how much they mean to you. Apologize or forgive. Focus on happy memories. And give yourself time to truly grieve/mourn. And lastly, you can do a farewell ceremony to that situation, circumstance, memory by simply bidding it farewell. You can do a ritual, where you wash away [in a bath], where you burn away with a candle. Whatever you feel like you need to do in order to give a final goodbye to that hurt, do so.
It's been my pleasure walking you through this meditation, I bid you a farewell.
