Children are naturally creative. They have to be creative to survive in the world and learn about the world. They hear a new noise and want to find out what it is. They see something new and want to explore the taste, feel and sound of it. They are constantly exploring the world and being creative in the ways they explore.
Over time that sense of exploration and desire to create can become repressed or frozen through traumatic experiences of varying intensity. You can end up with one person who remains in contact with the inner child part of themselves, who is the life of the party, creative and playful, and another who loses contact and becomes rigid, fearful and controlling.
As adults, we can reconnect to the intuitive, playful, and emotionally sensitive part of us. As we do so, we tend to start to feel more alive, more connected to a sense of joy for no reason. We feel less scared because we know what the inner child needs in every moment and how to take care of them.
A deep sense of self-trust starts to develop. It feels grounded, safe and supportive.
Learning to re-parent is a process. We need to build trust with our inner-child, be reliable and take care of them/ourselves. I have personally found the process to be life-changing.
I have been doing this work on myself and with my clients for over 16 years, and I have just finished pouring all of that experience into the NEW course “Inner Child Healing”. If you are ready to start the healing work, then check it out. It is being released on Sunday 25th. If you sign up for the Early Bird list, you will receive a discount code.
Much love to all your inner children, Jen
