How to heal the inner child

12/09/2010 20:15

Within each of us lies the inner child. Not all of us had happy and healthy childhoods. Many peoples early years were times of emotional and mental trauma. In some cases, this was physical and sexual trauma.

Traumas, big and small can affect us deeply and when left unhealed they can result in negative patterns of behaviour and emotion in later life.

When we begin connecting with and healing this fragile part of us, we can begin to evolve and transform.

In my clinic I see clients experience profound changes when we work with the inner child. Tears begin to flow for the first time in a long time and afterwards, people express how light they feel, as though a heavy weight has been lifted from them.

Here is an excercise that you can do on your own to begin the process of healing your inner child.

-Close your eyes and begin to imagine this part of you

-Notice what age this child is

-Notice how this part of you is feeling. Is this part of you happy, sad, alone or afraid?

-Imagine you could speak words of encouragement and love to this young part of yourself telling them that everything is going to be alright. Imagine becoming the parent the child needs.

-Take a few moments to do this and then come back into the room.

With repeated practice this short excercise can be the first step at healing this part.
