We all know that there is probably is no other part of us that can be triggered as fast and intense as our Inner Child. It can block us, disconnect us, scare us, drive us into instant rage or activate our strongest defenses within a matter of split seconds!
Inner Child is often not necessarily what we think it is. Sure, for many of us our core wounds and traumas are located in our childhood, but as we take a closer look it’s not so much what happened to us that made our story what it is today, but how we remember handling our personal challenges and circumstances.
While a wounded and some times even rogue inner child can make us freeze, lash out or wanting to hide or run away, it can also inspire us! If we can overcome our initial resistance, the feeling of helplessness, powerlessness or having been unfairly treated or judged we can truly experience a great deal of healing through rejoicing with that locked up part of us. It can allow us playfully explore our inner worlds, to rediscover the wonderment and curiosity of discovering the beauty in all our experiences, and help to embrace our innocence, hand in hand, with who we have become on our life’s journey.
