Inner Child

+ Your "inner child"

is a part of your subconscious that has been picking up on messages long before you were able to process them fully (mentally and emotionally).

It contains past emotions, memories, and beliefs, as well as future hopes and dreams.

What is an inner child, and what knowledge does it possess?

Our inner child is a part of us that has existed since we were conceived, throughout infancy, and all the years following when we were developing into tender selves: baby, infant, toddler, young child, and middle school year.

The inner child frequently recalls both positive and negative childhood experiences, such as fears, traumas, neglect, or significant loss.

While it may be difficult to pinpoint the exact event that tugs at us, when we begin to explore our inner world, we can begin to notice our internal patterns that have left us with subconscious "bread crumb trails."

How do we recognise our Inner Child personalities?

Our inner child recalls the sweet smell of grandma as she leant down to hug us with a huge smile of pride on her face, or when we demonstrated our ability to ride our bike to her.

Our inner child recalls the joy and love that filled our hearts when our father looked at us with a glisten in his eyes or the gratitude we felt when we shared our favourite toy with the neighbour.

Our inner child recalls being invited to a friend's birthday party and feeling so confident and happy.

Our inner child is also the one who felt the salty tears streaming down our cheeks as mama rushed out of the house to say goodbye to her dying father.

Our inner child recalls being ignored and bullied on the first day of school while riding the school bus.

Our inner child recalls feeling foolish when the teacher scoffed or when we were stumped by a "seemingly simple" question.

When we begin our first job, our inner child is present, demonstrating to your boss that you are responsible and capable, and feeling proud.

When we are teenagers, our inner child is present, desperate to belong.

When we are on the lookout for love or social groups to join, our inner child is present.

It's the part of us that feels understood, at ease, and warm and fuzzy when we're with others.

Additionally, it is the part of our being that feels crushed and betrayed when we are hurt, ignored, or lied to.

Throughout our lives, our inner child communicates with us..
