Holding the light in challenging times.
Remember your child within when you were free of concern, judgment, and expectation – you were simply being your self. You were fully present.
Presence comes easily to the young child. Watching a toddler or infant as they freely move their bodies, as they observe their environment, or taste their fingers in their mouth, we see them being present. In the three-year-old arranging train tracks for Thomas the Train, the young girl rocking her doll and humming, the exploration of the texture and taste of dirt or beach sand by a toddler are experiences free of judgment and expectation.
As we remember aspects of our childhood experiences, we recapture our inner light that may feel overshadowed by difficult times.
