Inner Child Healing. Our inner child is ageless.
Life is not about growing up, it’s about growing deeper.
What is our inner child?
An inner child is a sub-personality that exists within our subconscious minds and it is an accumulation of all the unmet needs when we were growing up such as:
- Not emotionally acknowledged.
- Not physically comforted.
- Not seen.
- Not heard.
5 of the common signs that your inner child isn’t connected with your adult:
- You avoid conflict at all costs
- You have a fear of being abandoned or rejected.
- You struggle to say no (people pleasing tendencies)
- You feel like there’s something not quite right about you.
- You keep yourself constantly busy to avoid your feelings.
Carl Jung coined the term “inner child”
he proclaimed that within every adult exists an eternal child that is perpetually in a state of becoming more, and requires nurturing through unceasing care, attention and education.
The inner child is the part of us that is vulnerable, creative, playful,
expressive and in need of tenderness.
When we are children, we depend on our caregivers to meet our physical, mental and emotional needs. Unfortunately, so many of us experienced abandonment or neglect during our childhood, which left us feeling incomplete, unworthy of love. So we are desperate for other people’s approval. We are unconsciously attracted to emotionally unavailable partners in an attempt to rewrite our narrative and to escape the pain of abandonment.
I help my clients reprogram their subconscious beliefs and transform the trauma so they can feel safe, empowered and connected to their inner child. As a result the emotional baggage that caused anxiety, depression and self-sabotage is released freeing you to embrace happiness.
Embracing our Inner Child, sets our Adult free from the pain of the past. You can’t outrun your emotions.
Distraction is at best a temporary relief, never a cure.
