Can you feel the presence of your inner magical child within your soul?
As I write these words it is late February. I can see some little Tete-a-Tete daffodils flowering in my garden. There are a few pale lilac crocuses and a little bunch of snowdrops dancing their pure white beauty against the brown earth. Birds are singing. Spring is on its way.
I can sense hope, rebirth, possibilities, curiosity and wonder…
Spring is arriving and with it the energy of the Maiden.
In Earth-based spirituality you’ll often hear talk of the Triple-Aspect Goddess and how She relates to the phases of the Moon, the seasons and phases of our lives.
- She is the Maiden of spring, the new and waxing moon.
- The Mother of summer and full moon.
- The Crone of autumn and winter and the waning and dark moon.
(I work with five aspects of the Goddess … but that’s a post for another day! Or meet them in my book Whispers From Mother Earth.)
And so spring energy connects us to the Maiden Goddess and She offers us the gifts of new beginnings, inspiration, hope and joy.
The Inner Child
But the Maiden is ever-present within you too.
And no matter your age, the Maiden is within your psyche – your soul.
She is your Magical Inner Child of joy, lightness, hope and curiosity.
No matter your lived experience of childhood, the Maiden is an archetypal energy you can call upon.
And she is innocent and playful and open to new experiences. Life is a delightful and fun game to her!
How would it be to call upon her today? Especially if you’re feeling a bit jaded or lacklustre.
Call on her, for she is an inner source of inspiration; the spark of creativity!
Call on her magic … and be inspired to play and experiment, and to create without judgment or expectation.
No matter the time of year, no matter your age, connect to your inner child and her gifts of creative joy.
In the video below I share a reading of ‘Magical Child’ from my book Whispers From Mother Earth. I share it as a short meditation practice to help you to connect to the creative magic within you!
Watch the video and then you might like to consider the Soul Reflection prompts I’ve included below…
How does your Inner Magical Child want to play today?
What does she want to create?
What sparkly, magical creative idea does she have to share with you?
