“Card Meaning: Just as you take care of small children by listening to them, playing with them, and hugging them, so does your inner child yearn for maturing. This card also asks you to have patience with yourself, as you are growing and maturing at your own pace.
If you’re feeling neglected and unappreciated, the most likely reason is that you’ve been ignoring your inner child’s needs. Just as with any child, your inner child needs daily care and attention. This includes giving her consistently postive feedback. Take a moment to hug yourself right now, and tell yourself (mentally or aloud), “I love you! You are a wonderful and perfect child of God.”
Take some time today to play. Your playfulness could be as organized as going to an amusement park or playground, or as spontanous as telling silly jokes with a friend. Your new daily habit of “taking care of the kid within” helps you feel more youthful and vigorous, and will ultimately make you more productive. You’ll be filled with fresh, new ideas, and your friends will soon be telling you how young and refreshed you look.
Affirmation: I invest in myself by taking regular time to let go, play, and have fun.”
