Are you ready for this? Today is the day when you will approach your Inner Child and start creating an authentic, wonderful and deeply healing relationship with the part of you that has the power to transform your life.
Thank you for reading this blog and for being part of my gratitude journey. I am grateful that you are here and I want you to have a healthy, happy, laughing, joyous Inner Child.
At the beginning of this series, I asked you to create you Inner Child Image and to allow it to sit with you in silence. Today let’s start again with a few words from Louise Hay:
“There is a parent inside each of us, as well as a child. And most of the time, the parent scolds the child—almost nonstop! If we listen to our inner dialogue, we can hear the scolding. We can hear the parent tell the child what it is doing wrong or how it is not good enough. We need to allow our parent to become more nurturing to our child.”
And a quote from the book “Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls” by Robert Burney
“We need to rescue and nurture and Love our inner children – and STOP them from controlling our lives. STOP them from driving the bus! Children are not supposed to drive, they are not supposed to be in control.
And they are not supposed to be abused and abandoned. We have been doing it backwards. We abandoned and abused our inner children. Locked them in a dark place within us. And at the same time let the children drive the bus – let the children’s wounds dictate our lives.”
Invite your Inner Child to join you right now. I will explain to you what to do and then I will say good bye, leaving you to talk to him or her. You will start talking to your Inner Child, but you must do it very gently, with love and compassion. Your Inner Child has been waiting for this moment for a very long time, locked up and abandoned. You must be patient and approach him/her with great care.
Do you remember how you would have liked to be embraced, loved, supported, talked to and played with as a child?
If you do, then use the right words and images and explain to your Inner Child that she/he is safe now and that even though she/he might have felt alone, abandoned and scared in the past, from now on you will always be there to protect and love her/him. Give your Inner Child everything you feel that you were not given.
Now, if you can’t remember how you felt as a child, engage your subconscious mind as if you were talking to a frightened child that you just met right now. Approach the child slowly, very slowly; speak softly and only touch him/her with the utmost care. Explain and hug and be gentle and patient.
This part of you is waiting to come home, to the loving and supporting home that you are capable of creating.
Continue this dialogue and interaction in the days to follow, until YOUR INNER CHILD feels truly safe, protected and loved. So then she or he can rest, sleep and recharge in safety.
And then, magic will happen: YOUR INNER CHILD, which is your subconscious mind will be on your side and will fuel your efforts to create a life beyond your wildest dreams.
This powerful inner energy will work for you even when you sleep. Your strong, clear and playful Inner Child will not hide anymore, will not doubt, will not fear or avoid life.
YOU will embrace and flow with the stream of life without struggle and with great joy.
Gently, patiently, carefully and lovingly give your Inner Child all the love, the caresses, the understanding and the support she or he was denied. Restore his/her faith in life.
Start living now as YOURSELF, FULLY, FEARLESSLY with your INNER CHILD returned back home, to YOU.
I love you, I’m sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you
