There are times when you feel out of sorts, just plain grumpy without any knowledge of why you are feeling like this. Often it is your inner child that is acting up out of frustration or feeling ignored. It is possible to dialogue with your inner child through meditation. You can ask questions to discover why your inner child is upset. Many times, it is just a matter of bringing more play, fun and adventure into your life that will calm them down.
Our inner child can sabotage us through fear, anger and jealousy without meaning to. Addictions and other dangerous behaviors are some of the more serious issues when an inner child is allowed to be in charge. Pay attention to the decisions you are making. Do you feel that they are in your best interests or do they seem to hold you back?
