Day 15 ~ The Inner Child Reborn ~ 21 Days of Manifesting Hope in Uncertain Times
We have arrived at week three of this meditation journey. This week we will take hope and inspire others to hope. Today we will focus on our inner child and search for that childhood innocence that is so easily hopeful.
“Hope is the thing with feathers, / That perches in the soul, / And sings the tune without the words / And never stops at all…” – Emily Dickinson
MESSAGE OF THE DAY
Even as adults, we all still retain that part of our personality we had when we were children. The positive, healthy aspects of our inner child expresses our innocence, joy, exuberance and hope. This accepting and fresh view of life comes from the true self. This egoless state is always there within us.
In today’s meditation, we learn how to reawaken the inner children in ourselves, as well as encourage it in others by seeing their inner child with the innocent and accepting eyes of our own.
I see the hopeful inner child in everyone

REFLECTIVE JOURNAL QUESTIONS
Think of someone you know who is discouraged or feeling a little hopeless. Write down their name and what you can offer them. Set aside two things they don’t need – advise and pity. Instead, think about offering sympathy, non-judgment, patience, acceptance and understanding.
Consider how you could bring an aspect of play into someone’s life who is in need of it, meaning someone who is overwhelmed, frazzled, consumed by work etc. Write down their name and how you can help, finding an activity you can share for a while today.
Describe in your journal some ideas of how you can bring light into the lives of those around you. Eg. By sharing an inspiring story, spreading good news, being open and carefree, showing kindness, offering a service, etc
Be fresh and light hearted, Amanda
