We all know that there is a part of us that, when triggered, can make us act out in ways, we are not always proud of. It can block us, disconnect us, scare us, drive us into instant rage or activate our strongest defenses within a matter of split seconds! Even if we are fully aware of it, when activated, our hurt inner child can zoom us back into the lower expressions of who we are and make all our efforts to become a wiser, more mature self an endless struggle. No matter how many years of self-help books, therapy or youtube videos we spent to learn about healing our childhood traumas, in our everyday relationships, this unloved and neglected part of us remains our Achilles Heel. All it takes is the notion of rejection or not feeling safe with someone, and we act in ways that we wish we hadn't. Without a strategy to face and work with this uncontrollable and often lower expression of ourselves, we will have a hard time to overcome persistent barriers or painful repetitions.
As an empath healer and energy coach, I want to give you a few markers that can help you to feel more compassion for your inner child, and perhaps motivate you to engage with this hidden part of who you are. Underneath the tantrum-throwing, scared, powerless little narcissist or victim in us lies a world of wonderment, curiosity, creativity, inspiration, and true love.
