Miserable Beautiful Creature -- The shadow domain of the Inner Child and possible healing
Miserable Beautiful Creature -- A Poem
The series of rejection in my life was a mere reflection of my self-rejection. I had to learn to see myself exactly as I am and LOVE everything that I see, much like a loving mother. I remembered being guided to tune in to see my inner child and I was horrified to see the little girl so utterly neglected, covered in black soot from head to toe. All she got to play with was one black crayon and she had painted everything black, including herself. That inner vision shamed me to my core and I vowed to love that little child that was me with all I've got. That's how my healing began.
This is a poem about the same said inner child at that time....
Miserable Beautiful Creature
the lies we tell ourselves
spinning our spider's web to keep us
oh what a prey!
may the truth's be tightly wrapped,
and swallowed in unrecognizable pieces if necessary
what our mind does not know could not hurt us,
everything is perfect as it is!"
the humpback that lives, hidden in the catacomb of our
beautiful, righteous cathedrals
lurking in the dark causing nervous little catastrophes,
once caught and is shown in the torch light,
is but a child!
grotesquely grown from years of negligence,
with features familiar yet unrecognizable,
that same human child you once were,
who survived from being buried alive!
what's that hump on his back?
that years of untruth told on his behalf.
you think you are safely perched
around your spider's web
gorging down corpses
of your past...
let the wind not come
plead with the mind to please please stop groping around with a stick!
the beautiful lies that keep you
is but as fragile as
the spider's web in an inner storm
once it collapses
oh you miserable beautiful creature!
might have to start weaving all over again,
Make sure it's the same lies!
just different in design!

Heal Your Inner Child
The first step to embark on a happier life is the healing of your Inner Child who has suffered so much abuse and suppression. Ho'oponopono is a very simple but powerful traditional Hawaiian meditation. According to Dr. Hew Len, all our problems and sufferings come from our unconscious memory data being played out by the Inner Child. He asks us to become a mother to our own Inner Child, and to do our uttermost to release the Inner Child from suffering by constant conscious "cleaning" of the old memory data. It is as simple as saying "I'm Sorry," "Please Forgive Me", "Thank You" and "I Love You." For example, when something comes up that causes you to be upset in any way, acknowledge that fact by saying to your Inner Child: " I am sorry, please forgive me for whatever data that's going on in me that I need to make amend for (cleaning)." and to the cause of your upset saying: Thank You for giving me one more chance to let you go so that I can be free. I love You."
The following small youtube clip is an excellent short meditation to heal the Inner Child. It has little technical cliches but nothing to serious and does not take away from this powerful healing. Enjoy and I wish you all Happiness xoxo
