The Inner Egg Child

"When our Inner Child is blocked, we are robbed of our natural spontaneity and zest for life... When our Inner Child is hidden we also separate ourselves from others. They never get to see our true feelings and wishes; they never see who we really are... For us to be fully human, the Child Within must be embraced and expressed."

~ Lucia Capacchione

Notes from the Chrysalis

Healing the Inner Child (cont'd):

"Intimacy begins with the letter 'I'" ~ Nicole Ann Ditz

The Eggman

"Enlightenment begins with a simple question: 'Do I want to be enlightened?'

I must have been real mad for a long time, never realizing how it was tearing me up inside. Feelings. What are those? Growing up, men didn't have feelings, just beer and a strap. I've been on this journey for more years than I'd care to admit, but I think it is nine.

For many years I never knew the pain I carried, I just saw the scars, the drifts in my life that crashed upon a different shore each day, never looking at the rock or the stability it represented. My scars are deep and wide. My feelings sit fairly far from the surface. For me, it has taken a great deal of strength to expose my own threads and fibers to myself, and a great deal of work to understand empathy. I am learning the tune of my feelings, to enhance my listening skills, to stand up and be recognized for who I am, and to mourn, laugh, cry, and know joy.

My inner child has been asleep for a long time. Every now and then I catch a glimpse of him though. I want to hug him, tell him I love him, and let him know he is worthy. He is a good kid, I know he is."

"Loving yourself is building a strong inner connection with yourself. It is creating your own loving family, inside you. You will never feel alone anymore…Wherever you go, from now on you go with your Inner Family. You are not alone. You are loved and protected." ~ Ineke Van Lint

The Duckling & The Swan

(Self-integration and Wholeness are derived from being both the Holder and The Held at the same time: being the wise, strong and nurturing parent while holding our inner child(ren) warmly and safely. This inner union is a sacred experience of Loving Oneness.)

Swan

D.H

"The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love, and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed."

~ Krishnamurti
