We are locking up the playing, cheerful, creative and loving part of ourselves in our innermost to not having to feel the pain.
But how much do we do hurt ourselves by denying this aspect in us? The way back to our authentic self can be with inner child work!
The magic begins…
1 GET IN TOUCH
By learning to make contact with your inner child, you can gain insight into what is happening in your interior, now still, based on your own past experiences. The pain of now is just an echo of the pain from the past. The first step to reinvent yourself and regain your strength is to make contact with the child inside of you.
2 LISTEN AND START A RELATIONSHIP
A relationship with yourself, which has long been on a very low level, to avoid the pain, has long enough functioned with old patterns and survival mechanisms you developed. Your inner child wants to be heard and taken seriously and then listening is a first step.
3 BE THE LOVING PARENT
This is about trust, helping the child to trust you again and laying a foundation for a whole new relationship with your inner child. You understand your inner child like no other! You have experienced all those things that your inner child is with. As a result, you are eminently the person to help your inner child grow up.
4 HELP YOUR CHILD GROW UP
From trust, patience and love, you can take your inner child by hand and help to process and let go of the pain from the past to find your inner strength step by step.
5 MAINTAIN THE RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR CHILD
Your inner child becomes your emotional compass again, you can tell her what’s going on. Your actions are increasingly coming from your own inner strength and intuition. By maintaining the relationship with your inner child, you will completely come back to yourself.
6 LIVE A HAPPY AND MEANINGFUL LIFE
Feeling free, being able to make choices from your heart, being able to feel love for yourself and others, to give unconditional love. That is what a healthy and emotionally balanced inner child can give you. GO FOR IT!
