No matter how big or small, almost all of us experienced some kind of trauma as children.
These traumas could vary from having your favorite stuffed toy thrown in the trash, to being abandoned by your best childhood friend or family, your teacher embarrassing you in front of the whole class to being physically or emotionally abused.
Inner child work is a vital component of inner work because it reconnects us with a wounded element of ourselves: the child within. When we reconnect with this fragmented part of ourselves, we can begin to discover the root of many of our fears, phobias, insecurities and sabotaging life patterns. This is where the true healing happens!
My journey to Inner Child healing happened 4 years ago when i wanted to cut an ongoing long distance relationship pattern that never ended up working out with and then again i would get into same cycle even though consciously i didn't want it anymore. At the same time these relationships triggered the feeling of rejection in me. I didn't feel whole and complete on top of that these I was always seeking for more and it was never enough. One day in a deep meditation on self love in my mind's eye i connected with my 5 years old self with two plaited hair crying feeling abandoned on my first day at the boarding school my parents sent me to study in India. Little did i know that i was going to be left there, next i knew they were gone! i was in shock! As an adult now and looking back to my time in that school i actually thank my parents for sending to me to a really great school that gave me the opportunity to explore my passion since a little girl, which got me into my love for swimming and dance that i still pursue passionately till today. So there's pros and cons for sending your child way early to boarding school. They of course had the best intention for me and i am forever grateful. However as a child all you need is love and attention more than anything else and your parents are your first love!during this deep meditation that i was able to understand that my subconscious mind viewed Love as distant! That was eye opening for me and i started to dive deeper to work with inner child. I was able to connect with my inner child through Reiki sessions as i was also studying to become a Reiki Master and through Hypnotherapy.
As both these techniques helps you tap into your subconscious mind where all are your life script is written from conception and continues to written until you're 7-8 years old. Several of our negative beliefs and blocks to positive behaviors began in our childhood. Traumatic incidents that happened when we were younger stay embedded and suppressed in our subconscious, and surface when least expected. Which is the root cause to many issues in our life; the kind of relationship, friends, people we attract, confidence, rejection, conceiving ,career, money blocks, health, etc This will also help you have a better alignment with your true self and live life with joy and abundance which is your birthright!
I am so glad i committed to self healing and growth embracing my inner child, we all have a feminine and masculine energy within us as an adult you can now be the perfect parent to your own inner child. Doing this inner child work has made me feel whole, happy and abundant person that i am now today. Do i get triggered still? Hell Yeah! and you will but its how you respond and react to it! having self awareness, committing to your spiritual growth it is an ongoing journey. It took me several sessions because each time i connect with my inner child i discover something more that needed to be healed. Our emotions are like onions you peel one layer another layer gets revealed. Your subconscious mind is like muscles the more you train it the stronger it becomes and finally you replace that self limiting belief system that no longer serves you any purpose. Which is why just being positive or saying positive affirmations just won't work until you tap into your subconscious face your fear and replace it with love.
I hope this article inspired you to do deep inner work and re-connect with your inner child. Remember by healing yourself you are helping to heal your family, break the karmic patterns, and heal the world as well. You are here to be the light and spread the light.
With love and gratitude
