Today my inner child is free from fear
I am simply on this earth
Need I be afraid?
Mandan chant, translated by Frances Densmore
I observe the small child who is tossed into the
air and, all smiles and laughter, falls into the
strong, outstretched arms of a loving parent.
The child is both secure and adventurous.
Today I will release my fears and worries into
the care of my Higher Power. Doing so will
leave me free to explore the world about me
and the life within me.
I can examine my feeligs in safety. I can
stretch my body and touch a delicate blossom,
trace an ironwork railing, skip rocks across a
pond. I can explore my spirituality and envision
a Higher Power who desires my growth.
Today I will be free from fear and free to explore.
