“Every man hides within him a child who wants to play.”
The name of this card is called “l’enfant” in French. It can be translated as “the child” in English. If you notice any translation errors in this article, please let us know for our entire community. You can leave your comment at the bottom of this page.
The child is a two-way vision. Are we talking about the inner child or the outer child? Only your mind reflecting in the map will tell you. Look at the card with carelessness, smile, and discover the deck of cards that you hold like a curious child. The child is a sincere being, but unaware of the trickery of the adult world, he remains naive, credulous and manipulable. He discovers the world with new eyes, but he is permeable to the fears of the people around him.
We can dialogue with our inner child in order to reassure him and better live his adult life. The child is linked to his mother in a living relationship, sometimes happy, sometimes unhappy. We also talk about this card in situations where maturity must have a role to play. The child and his parents form a whole called family, we can also hear “the child is separating” in the sense that he is an individual in his own right. One day the child will leave and be independent. Like the flight of a bird. You will then understand this allegory of the bird.
The child, whether interior or physically present, will grow and expand. This means that he will mature in his mind, and therefore mature. Moreover, to grow is to strengthen oneself in the trials of life. We will then understand that to grow, it is necessary to make efforts to grow and to grow by making efforts. The inner child must then be relieved by words, to achieve this result.The evils of the past are disturbances and illusions of reality. The illusionist likes to show us sleight of hand. Stop living in the illusions of the past and let our inner child grow into a fulfilled adult of great wisdom. We encounter lifelong trials commensurate with our maturity, but we must manage our trials not with our physical age, but with our mental age. If we have not matured, it will be difficult to pass certain trials that life has in store for us.
