I seem to be a magnet for the inner children of friends and clients. I can be in the midst of any kind of session or conversation, and in the blink of an eye the person might shift to a specific moment or period in time, silently asking for acknowledgment, or validation, or safety or hugs. I call these places in us soul fragments or shadow dwellers. There was a pause in our experience, possibly because we were shamed, injured or judged. In the reverse, sometimes our gifts and talents are demeaned or discouraged. In an act of self-protection and preservation, we shut down, bookmarking the experience or period of time until we might safely return to the light of day. To all who are listening and waiting, may I say 'There is compassion and love and safety here with me.'
