Understand your inner child

Heal your Inner Child

This is a good process to do when you feel like you have been emotionally triggered. Maybe you have found yourself teary, overwhelmed, life is getting too hard  – and you just need it to shift. 
This is one of the most powerful processes I was taught when I learned Holistic Counselling as it takes you back to the root cause of your emotional triggers. 
Many times, growing up we didn’t have effective ways to get our needs met or feeling heard.
This is the process to make a powerful shift that will build your self esteem. You will find many new awareness and ah-has to release old patterns. 
Grab your pen and paper, find a quiet pocket of time. And lets connect in with your inner child. 
This process will take conscious effort and may feel uncomfortable or silly at first as it requires you to write with your non dominant hand and access the other part of your brain that is more creative. It is very powerful, especially when you have a photo of your childhood younger you.

With your dominant hand, write:
Dear little (write your name) how are you feeling right now?

With your non dominant hand, let your inner child answer answer:
Dear adult (write your name) I am feeling ….. 

Thank the little version of you for expressing herself.

Finish this process with some self care gratitude affirmations, such as- 

  • “I will look after you inner child”
  • “You are beautiful just the way you are”
  • “You are special to me”
  • “I see you”

Longer Script to Journal with your Inner Child

Below is a longer script if you need extra prompts. Remember to let the feelings come up spontaneously. 

“Little one, where in your childhood did you feel like this (what age)….”

“Little one, what was it like for you?”

“I am angry because…” (record any struggles)

“I am sad because….” (record any struggles) 

“Little one, I love you because…”

“Little one, what do they need?”
