What Is Your Inner Child Saying to You?

Why It’s Good to Tap Into Your Inner Child, It’s Not What You Think.

If you’re looking for a way to feel more grounded, joyous and open in your life, working with your inner child might be the answer. This is an opportunity to heal some of the wounds that have caused you pain as an adult, which can then allow you to move forward with greater ease in your life. This process can also help you identify and break free from some of the core beliefs that no longer serve you.

It’s important to keep in mind that addressing childhood trauma can bring up difficult emotions such as anger, fear and sadness. This is why it’s recommended to have a trusted therapist supporting you through this process. You may also find it helpful to write a letter to your inner child, expressing how you wish to strengthen your bond and what you’d like to see more of in her life.

In order to tap into your inner child, it’s helpful to create a safe space. This could mean dedicating a specific room in your home or finding a tranquil outdoor setting. It’s also important to be fully present when interacting with your inner child. It can be easy to lose focus and get overwhelmed, so making an effort to stay engaged is a great way to ensure your safety and effectiveness in this work.

When connecting with your inner child, be sure to ask questions in a gentle and nonjudgmental manner. This allows her to share what she needs without being threatened in any way. This is a time to listen and support the little part of you that wants love, safety and freedom.

One great way to do this is through art, such as drawing, painting and sculpting. Another great way is through journaling or creating poetry or stories. You can also engage in physical activities that you enjoy, such as dance, sports and other forms of play. It can even be as simple as listening to throwback music that brings back fond memories.

Some people might feel a bit skeptical about the idea of an inner child, or they might be worried about bringing up painful feelings and emotions. (I know I was skeptical when first presented with this idea.)

Whether or not this is the case for you, it’s still worth pursuing your relationship with your inner child because there are so many benefits to doing so.

For example, re-working your negative beliefs and letting go of fears can reduce anxiety and help you live more freely. You’ll also likely develop greater emotional resilience as you do this work, allowing you to better cope with challenges in your life.

Overall, the purpose of tapping into your inner child is to connect with the parts of you that need healing and to develop a more trusting and loving relationship with them. If you’re feeling stuck in your life, chances are that your inner child is trying to tell you something. Stuck points can look like difficulties with work or relationships, struggles with parenting or difficulty setting healthy boundaries.

As children, we flow through life without judgment. We see and embrace so many aspects of the world that we miss as adults.  

Yes, we need to be adults but we also need to tap into that simplistic inner spark of our 5 year old self as well!
