The Child Within
We can be so hard on ourselves, expecting to heal according to a schedule and beating ourselves up when we make a mistake. The rose wants us to release all hardness from our bodies and all hurt from our cells. To find a way to soften. To remember that no matter what has happened, is happening, or will happen, we’re all innocent children of the stars and the Earth. The flowers are here for us. They’re a safe, soft place to remember. They want you to nurture the child within.
This is a card of gentle reassurance and compassion. It brings a message of gentle understanding and tenderness. It’s reminding you to treat yourself like the innocent child that you are, to take your inner child and let them rest deeply in the soft petals of your heart.
Card of the day from The Rose Oracle
We all have a child within us who at some point went into exile because they were hurt or because the world didn’t feel safe. And no matter how much we’ve grown, when we as adults are hurt or triggered, it’s normal to regress to this age and feel overwhelmed by the original emotion. And while we can’t change the past, what we can do is scoop up the child within and place them in the soft petals of the rose of our own heart.
How can you tenderly tend the child within?
