The Division of Consciousness
There is one pervading energy in the universe, it is consciousness.
Many people today who have had a spiritual experience, or who consider themselves spiritual but not necessarily religious talk about one consciousness. One energy, the universe, an all-encompassing omnipresent god. Some have experienced this through meditation, physical practices, through mind altering medicines or a mix of all three. These seemingly different approaches may be inter-related and create the correct circumstances in which one feels closer to this sense of interconnected oneness.
Inside all of us is a wounded child waiting for us to show up for them, to reconnect and support them in getting their needs met. As a parent would for their child.
How the Inner Child shows up in our lives
The Inner Child is real; she holds the key to healing trauma, releasing pain, suffering, emotions, behavioural patterns that, even though many are unconscious, we witness them repeatedly playing out in our life. The Inner Child acts out, plays up when she is out of balance and harmony, needing her needs met, which show up in our lives as emotional reactions and behavioural responses that come from a place of wounding, rather than empowered choice.
What does this look like?
By forming a relationship, together, you can both be liberated from these elements that no longer serve you in your life. Self awareness reveals the depth to which we are able to identify and recognise our responses and reactions.
The inner child is also quite the chameleon. An expert in disguise, hiding and holding onto emotional pain and trauma and learned behaviours. Of course! How else was she able to survive?
The biggest gift we can give ourselves is self empowerment; to heal the wounds of our inner child, through conscious reparenting.
Now we know that our inner child is there, waiting for us to connect and provide her with what she needs, the rest will unfold and flow. It does require action on your part; an open, willing heart and trust that you are the best person to take care of her.
