Embrace your inner child. I do this more and more these days.
Inner child work is the process of contacting, understanding, embracing, and healing your inner child. Your inner child represents your first original self that entered into this world; s/he contains your capacity to experience wonder, joy, innocence, sensitivity, and playfulness.
Kezza, the little kid connection.
Several weeks back after racing a 20 km ocean ski race (adult self), I return back to Huskisson where I was drawn to the beach to go for a swim. As we got to the beach however, a very strong wind squall and heavy rain hit. I put the umbrella up for the dogs but the wind was too strong. I sat down with them and unconsciously became a little kid again. I loved hiding away behind things.
I was squashed in with Molly and Koa while all the elements of beautiful mother nature were going on around us. Torrential rain and strong wind, but I felt like such a little kid in such a safe place. It didn’t matter what was going on outside the Boundary of that umbrella. I was just a little kid enjoying that moment of solitude.
I did go for a swim eventually
Embrace your inner child, it’s always part of you
