Secret Garden of the Child Self

I pulled the Six of Cups from the Moon Garden Tarot deck today – and I saw this as the Secret Garden of the Child Self. The position of the card was in the Unconscious Self. Perfect placement!

I loved the book The Secret Garden when I was child, and now want to re-read it.

What games did you like to play as a child? (I liked to pretend I was in the Monkees or the Beatles).

What playful treasures can your child self show you that you may have forgotten about?

Here is a meditation called Meeting the Child Self from Journey through the Chakras:

“Om shanti” from my child self to yours!

  1. Love the pic! Love the Secret Garden book! Love where this prompted me to sitting in the car as a child with my cardboard brick blocks building them around me including armrests like I was suitcasing myself. “Look at me!”, to my parents in the front. “Oh look, you’re a building, Jordy!” “No No No. I am not a building or Jordan now.” (Parents, ???) “Well what are you, then?” Smiling, “I’m space, inside! Look how I just fit!”

    Such an excellent remembrance. I have to say, what a prescient remembrance. I see where I began from the exquisite prompt of this post to dial back up that memory into service.

    Thank you, Holly! And, “The Secret Garden.” Suuuuch an amazing story standalone, + such an amazing story of finding oneself in one’s inner worlds locked away.

    1. I love your story of being space! I just think – wow! Such a cool way of looking at things.

      in art school, in drawing, we were taught to to look at and draw the negative space and not the object (first) in order to get out of our own way and actually look – not draw what we think it is, but draw as it is.

  2. Is that your adorable child shelf? I met a photographer named John Morey from flagstaff. I introduced him to the owls. He’s a fantastic photographer. I asked if he knew you, but he said he didn’t.
