This is a beautiful meditation and blessings to the author who wrote it who is yet to be known.

"I speak directly to the Child within. I want you to know I have prepared a safe place for you. In this place, you will not be violated. In this place, you will not be judged. In this place, you will be loved, honored, respected and supported. In this place, you will be listened to, accepted, and allowed complete freedom to express whatever you need to express. Here, in this safe place, you can feel whatever you need to feel. Here, you'll be comforted and understood. You have carried some burdens for a long time. You were able to do that because you are smart and very strong. You had to do that because you had no choice. I want you to know that you have different choices now. Now, if you choose, you can begin to let go of some of those burdens, that pain, and those secret feelings. Anything you want to release can be released, and I will help you. Anything you still need to hold on to, to make you feel safe, you can hold on to. I will honor your boundaries. I understand you tried to speak out some things before, and were not allowed to be yourself or tell your truth. I understand that it may take a little time before you trust me, and that is good because it means you have learned to protect yourself. I will give you the time you need to trust me, and to trust the adult you have become. You can remember a little or a lot, or you can just let the memories release through emotion or breath. You have different choices now. You are in control. Remember who you are."
