The Inner-Child refers to that part of each of us which is ultimately alive. The Inner-Child is the emotional self. It is where our feelings live. We all have situations that arise in our lives which develop into unresolved emotional traumas. The gradual accumulation of unfinished mental and emotional business can lead to, and fuel, chronic anxiety, fear, confusion, emptiness and unhappiness through all of our life.
The natural defense mechanism of the Inner-Child to avoid painful experiences is withdrawal from the personality or self. Though this is supposed to be a temporary withdrawal, in all of us it persists mainly due to continued unresolved emotional traumas and unhealed situations causing disconnection. This is how we lose our connection with the Inner-Child.
Linear time does not apply when we work internally and with the unconscious. It is possible to bring our present wise and loving self, to meet and help our young Inner-Child and offer comfort and support, and find a new joy and energy in living.
By re-parenting or reclaiming that wounded child, we uncover any conscious or unconscious myths that we carry about ourselves and begin to re-evaluate and transform it.
