Befriending and Holding your Inner Child

Befriending and Holding your Inner Child

Have you ever felt like there are unresolved issues from your past that continue to impact your present? Many people experience this, and it may be a sign that your inner child is in need of healing. But what exactly is inner child healing, and how can you begin this transformative journey?

What is Inner Child Healing?

Inner child healing is a therapeutic process that involves addressing and resolving past traumas, wounds, and beliefs that were formed during childhood. These unresolved issues can manifest in various ways in adulthood, affecting relationships, self-esteem, and overall well-being.

How Can You Start Healing Your Inner Child?

1. Self-Reflection: Take time to reflect on your childhood experiences and identify any painful memories or patterns that continue to impact you. If anything deeply painful comes up, try the dragon's breath technique or seek professional help. 

2. Inner Child Work: Connect with your inner child through visualization, journaling, or creative activities to understand their needs and emotions. Was loving to create art suppressed in you as a child because of perfectionism or criticism? What would it mean to you and your inner child to make art unapologetically? 

3. Seek Support: Consider working with a therapist or counselor who specializes in inner child healing to guide you through the process. Timeline therapy or reputable hypnotherapy can also aid this processing. 

4. Find a photo of little you and hang it by your bed or somewhere where you will see it often. Send them kind and loving words often. 

5. Make room in your life for play and wonder. Jump in a puddle. Swing on the swings. Roll down a hill in the park. Play a nostalgic game. Build something you would have loved as a kid. At our store we are building a giant fairy house for these exact reasons!

Benefits of Inner Child Healing

By embarking on your inner child healing journey, you can experience profound emotional healing, increased self-awareness, and a deeper sense of self-acceptance. This process can lead to greater inner peace, healthier relationships, and a more fulfilling life filled with love and appreciation for a whole version of yourself.
