God, what would you have me say and do today?

God, what would you have me say and do today?
Remember the child in you.
Honour the vulnerable aspects of your being.
Love gently your fears, pains, and wonderings.
Adopt this precious part of you. Hold it
with tenderness and compassion,
and bring it into your
protection and understanding.
This child is a gift to you,
and you are a gift to it.
Give this part of you a home
within your higher consciousness.
Hold close to your heart this younger self.
Wrap your arms around…you.
Allow the child that lives and lingers within
to feel your spiritual strength-
to feel the part of you that is sure of me.
Let it feel the part of you that has
unflinching faith,
the part that knows the power of love and light,
the parts that have experienced healing, blessing,
and the negation of fear.
Let the child see through your eyes
and become like you-
whole, fearless,
a divine light being..
Evening Reflection
Today wasn’t about how to treat or be with other people or how to be in the world. It was about recognizing and acknowledging the part of me that is still a child and then giving it the attention and TLC it needs.
A recurring dream about being asked to adopt a homeless, abandoned child, one who had my initials and who looked somewhat like me, made it clear that I was being guided to integrate the part of me-the child in me-that had been left on his own.
This precious guidance led me to recognize, honour, and begin to consciously integrate a childhood trauma. I remembered the intense fear I experienced when I was six years old, and I want to say to that young guy, “Hello, little David. You are now home. You are protected, loved, and out of danger. Be not afraid any longer.”
How was your experience of being asked to remember the child in you?
