All posts published here are presented as casual conversation pieces to provoke thought in some direction or another, they do not necessarily represent fixed opinions of the Inner Council, as our work exists beyond the spectrum of bound statement and singular clause.
The journey with the Inner Child is a method of reflective focus. By shining an energy beam on past memories we not only step into the past, but bring the past into the present to live and breathe once again. Through this recall activity we contribute to our ongoing integration by collecting new clues, undiscovered the first time around, now clearly recognisable to our present perspective and level of understanding. This renewed insight re-solves aspects of our past that we couldn’t integrate on the first time of passing. In doing this work we may identify aspects of our true essence or childhood character that we left behind. The fractured remains of our authentic self which gave us a unique streak of confident zeal or jubilance approach us like old friends requesting reunion. We can either enjoy the nostalgia and contemplate on those past times, or we can re-integrate and bring them back with us to the present.
I recognise you, I miss you, I need you back here with me.
There are different methods of Soul Retrieval but they will, in their approach, sneak up upon lost traits in a very similar manner as we encounter them in Inner Child work. We reach out and fill a hole that’s left us with an energetic compromise, or a missing piece significant enough for our Inner Child to raise our attention to. The pieces we left behind when authenticity was traded for something attractive in the short term. We thought we were doing the right thing—maturing, developing, initiating to the higher echelons of society. Unaware of the unconscious merchant who was deceptively soul trading at the time.
Like explorers of antiquity we focus on the present to identify the reward, we do the work, we collect the clues and any other treasures that are on offer. Once our work is complete we fill these old, forgotten, dusty memory alcoves with divine gratitude and make peace with the past places we’ve once again visited. We are time travelling detectives, artifact collectors, cosmic diplomats.
Integrating the past requires a mature and graceful inquiry, like professionals we proceed, taking only what we need and leaving no trace as we recede. Like an Agatha Christie novel the suspense of the next chapter creeps upon us with an inkling. We play hide and seek with ourselves in unraveling the conundrums to reveal the realisations we came here to discover.
