Inner Child work has become a more broadly recognized terms in recent years due to the increased awareness around the importance of addressing and healing trauma. More specifically, trauma experienced in childhood. The majority of our long-standing core false beliefs stem from messages we received and understandings we developed in the first few years of our lives. These understandings often came from things that happened to us including abuse, neglect, rejection, and other hurtful experiences. When the traumatic events occurred the energy is stored in our bodies, unresolved, and evermore impacting our decisions, actions, and lives. Hence the importance and benefits of inner child work to identify and release these painful, damaging emotions. 

In this Identify and Heal Solo episode, I offer an overview of what Inner Child work actually means and entails, how the wounding comes about, and the ways to begin to begin addressing and healing it.
