2nd January - Infancy
Today I listen to the needs of my infant.
I am a newborn baby. After nine months within your womb, it will take some time for me to be fully here. Being born was difficult; all I want to do right now is sleep curled up in a ball.
Slowly day by day, I open up. One finger stretches out, then another. Soon my hand is open to receive yours. One leg kicks, and then another. Soon I am waving my feet in the air, enjoying my energy. One arm reaches out, then the other and I am able to return your hug. My eyes open and focus on your loving face. I smile at the sound of your voice. I feel myself fully in the world, ready for adventure.
As I confront new issues and repair old childhood wounds, infancy themes will arise for me. Instead of feeling shameful, I will seek out those I trust for holding, touching and nurturing. I am learning to be the loving parent to the precious infant inside of me.
