WHAT IS OUR INNER CHILD?

Your inner child is the little child you once were who needed to be nurtured and loved, the free spirit you have tamed and controlled? Is it your emotions, sensitivity, creativity that you have controlled, silenced, organized and structured? Or is it the frustrated, confused, anxious, ignored, abused you hidden from view and denied existence so that it causes you to be worried and fearful of mistreatment? Maybe you have replaced the happy, loving, humorous and joyful you with maturity, seriousness and a sophisticated demeanour

Your inner child is the childhood you have forgotten, but it still resides within you in your subconscious and still needs the love, nurturing and healing. Our parents had no idea they helped to create your inner child. Many of us deny we have an inner child. When our inner child is not allowed to be heard or acknowledged as real, we create a false self and start to live as victims, with unresolved emotional trauma leading to anxiety, fear, emptiness, and unhappiness.

It is through healing our inner child, by grieving the wounds that we suffered, so we can change our behaviour patterns. We can release the grief with its rage, shame, terror and pain from our past experiences

We need to make time to nurture, love and be with our inner child. It is necessary to own and honour the child we once were in order to love the person we are now, by owning and honouring our childhood experiences and release the emotional energy that we are carrying within us.

Soul Essence can help release this energy so you can free yourself to love yourself and others and improve your future relationships.

Inner Child Healing

The purpose of an Inner Child Healing.

girl-playroomChildren are very emotional beings as the ability to understand has not yet developed. Many times in childhood when we expressed these emotions we were punished, or at least disapproved of and rejected. So after time the emotions become suppressed in an attempt to avoid punishment and rejection. However the energy of the emotion does not then get discharged and therefore begins to accumulate in our energy fields and in our bodies. This causes blockages to the healthy flow of emotional energy which then creates tension and pain. In our attempts to not feel this emotional pain we try to deny it by blaming others for how we feel, projecting our feelings onto others.

However the energy has to go somewhere and as it becomes denser it can somatise into the physical body and create pain and disease. Pain is a way that our self healing intelligence will try to bring our attention to these unresolved left-overs from the past.
So in a Inner Child healing we facilitate the client to heal unresolved emotional pain from childhood. This can relieve the congestion within the energetic and physical bodies to the extent that diseases can be healed.

There are three steps to the process;

Awareness

Giving the Inner child attention in a loving and allowing way. This meets a deep need and allows what is in shadow to feel safe enough to emerge.

Release

Giving a safe space for the child to express their feelings, and so run off the emotional charge that has been held since that time.

Integration

Holding and loving the child, especially after venting these feelings which are normally rejected, deeply dissolves and heals the patterns of fear, shame, and rejection out of which we create our ego defences.
