If you have experienced adversity as a child, it is never too late to heal your childhood wounds and reconnect to the side of yourself that's filled with wonder and awe. If you feel like your childhood pain and experiences have been affecting your present & authentic self, then this program may be for you.
THE WOUNDED INNER CHILD
When a young child experiences trauma or suffering, wounds are created that must be healed. This healing can be accomplished immediately following the trauma or event if the child has a parent who takes steps to reduce the damage caused by the situation. If that's not the case, the wounds don't heal, and they can cause disruption in adulthood.
HOW THE DAMAGE CAN AFFECT YOU AS AN ADULT
John Bradshaw, in his book Home Coming: Reclaiming And Championing Your Inner Child (1990), uses the tool of a mnemonic formula to describe the contamination a wounded inner child has on our lives:
Acting Out/Acting in behaviors
Emptiness (Apathy, Depression)
If you are noticing the contamination in your life, that is okay. All that means is you now have the power to work through that, to do some inner child healing, to change the course of your journey to one that aligns with your authentic self.
If you aren't sure if your inner child needs some healing, please read this blog that can give you some insight if your inner child is wounded.
You can't necessarily fix your inner child because, unfortunately, time machines aren't invented yet; but you can help it heal it.
If you're wondering the point of doing this work consider a child that is suffering from a wound, and you do nothing to help them. How do you feel ignoring the needs of this child? How would the child feel? Wouldn't they continue to suffer until the wound was healed?
Well, this is how your inner child feels, and their wounds can affect you well into adulthood. Inner child healing can put an end to this internal suffering.
The Inner Child Healing Program includes TEN sessions. These sessions tend to last anywhere from 60-90 minutes long. The program includes email/text support throughout the journey.
During our meetings, I will guide you through different writing exercises, journal prompts, guided meditations and visualizations, and provide you with assignments to do during the week. The purpose is to help connect you to your inner child so you can find freedom from the emotional or mental difficulties you may experience. This process can be extremely intense, transformative, and a vital step to reaching your fullest potential.
In this workshop we will create opportunities to:
After the workshop, you will have the necessary skills to approach your inner child with patience + love while allowing the adult to act in the present, you will be able to find healing for the painful stories of the past, you will explore healthier ways of being, & you will be able to release old patterns & invite ones that align best with your authentic self.
