Total lack of inhibition
The Natural Child THE NATURAL CHILD - The Natural Child ego state is the part of us that responds spontaneously and naturally to what's going on around us. It is the source of all our "natural" (non-recorded) feelings. It too operates in the present. It has no preconceived idea of what feelings we "should" or "should not" feel, or what feelings we might have felt in the past under similar circumstances. It is free to feel natural, spontaneous emotions. It feels joy, surprise, exuberance, alertness, and amazement. It feels desire. It feels passion. It loves. It trusts. It dreams. It is the part of us that plays and has fun. It is the part of us that has aspirations. It is the source of all our intuition, creativity, and inspiration, as well as the source of all the happiness and pleasure that we experience in life. It is the part of us that is "real."

Ideally, healthy, emotionally secure people are always aware of their Natural Child feelings, and use these "gut" reactions to clarify what is going on in the world around them, and to decide what excites them and what they want to get out of life.
