How To Connect To Your Inner Child?
I love that little girl
'Sometimes, when she comes out to say hi, I let her play and let loose.
I will never again forget to tell her I love her and that I embrace her. That she is heard and seen.
I have asked her to forgive me for ignoring her for so long and I assure her that she is safe to express herself.
Before I let her go, I remind her of her divine beauty and I give her the biggest hug.
I hope you honour your inner child today, and every day, too. I know that you both need it.'
What is Inner Child Work?
Inner child work, or healing, is a way to address our needs that haven't been met as children and heal the attachment wounds we've developed. We all have a younger part of ourselves that was never quite loved the right way or the way they needed as a child,
Like any type of inner work, inner child healing involves creating a space where your subconscious is allowed to take the lead. It is the act of going inside ourselves, to explore our true feelings and parts of us that may have been rejected and labelled as "inappropriate" or "too much" by others. By allowing ourselves time to go within, we begin peeling back our everyday coping mechanisms (being avoidant, numbing of our feelings, etc.) and are able to fully accept and integrate our subconscious into consciousness.
THINGS YOUR INNER CHILD MIGHT NEED TO HEAR: It’s not your fault when other people are in bad moods You are worthy of everything good It’s okay to feel You are not alone; I am with you You are a good person and I love you You are worth protecting You are beautiful and loved What happened to you was not your fault
Having these inner conversations is the acknowledgment that we do talk to ourselves. We have conflicting opinions. We negotiate with ourselves everyday.
So change this self-talk to actually serve you!
