DISCOVER YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF
What Is The Inner Child?
Your inner child is a part of your unconscious mind that reflects the child you were growing up.
This part of your unconscious mind remembers all your experiences from childhood, good and bad.
As a result, the inner child is the driving force that motives your thoughts and behaviors as an adult and impacts your perception of the world.
Inner child work focuses on negative messages (spoken and unspoken) you received, repressed childhood emotions and needs that were unmeet during childhood.
Our unmet needs and suppressed childhood emotions, as well as our childlike innocence, natural enthusiasm, and creativity, are all waiting within us.
Simple messages from our childhood that show up in our adult lives are as follows:
· “You’d better not say what you really think.”
· “Don’t try to get that promotion because you aren’t smart enough.”
· “You need to make your parents happy.”
Connecting with the inner helps you find the root causes of the challenges you’re facing as an adult.
There are many more signs that your inner child may be wounded.
Truthfully, all of us, no matter how small or insignificant, have experiences from our past that need addressing.
This reconnection allows you to assess the fragmented parts of yourself so that you can discover the root of your phobias, fears, insecurities, and self-sabotaging behaviors.

Messages Your Mother Missed
As a child, our mothers are supposed to send certain messages, verbally and non verbally.
Her ability to communicate these messages effectively will determine our emotional development.
A child who does not receive these messages will struggle with self-esteem, self-worth and value.
These messages include: I see you, I am a safe space for you, I delight in you, I respect you, your needs are important to me, I am here for you, I love your uniqueness, I see you, you’re so special to me.
A Father's Unspoken Choice
In many cases a Father may be inconsistent because he has chosen something or someone other than the child.
The child grows up to be an adult who tries to prove his or her value through achievements.
The adult believes that who they are authentically are not valuable so they must do so things in order to have value.
These adults are often overachievers, overeaters and overconsumers of goods.
