Most of us never think about having an inner child. Sometimes even just saying ‘inner child’ makes us cringe. Far too hippy. Instead we get on with our lives as adults, doing our adult things and dealing with our adult problems (usually with a glass of wine on hand). No inner child here.
But the fact is, she is there. Born, moulded and shaped by our personal history, our environment, the people who impacted us. And while we eventually grew up, she stayed the same, carrying the weight of our emotional baggage, bearing our scars, and internalising our pain. All while desperately seeking the tiniest smidge of approval, validation or acknowledgement. Being an inner child is a tough job.
Now, of course we’re all different, and we all have different challenges to face.
Perhaps you’re struggling to get promoted because you lack self-confidence.
Perhaps you have trouble finding or maintaining a relationship because you believe you’re not worthy of love.
Or perhaps you avoid sex because you have intimacy issues.
Whatever your own personal limiting belief or stumbling block, you'd be surprised at how many of your adult problems can be traced back to formative childhood experiences – and how effective connecting with your inner child can be in resolving them.
I’ll prove it to you.
