Why heal the Inner Child?
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.
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.
Healing the Inner child can put an end to this internal suffering. So, it's not a question of why heal the Inner Child but when will I feel ready to take this step?
Do you feel ready?
