Children are naturally creative. They have to be creative to survive in the world and learn about the world. They hear a new noise and want to find out what it is, they see something new and they want to explore the taste, feel and sound of it. They are constantly exploring the world and being creative in the ways they explore.
Over time that sense of exploration and desire to create can become repressed, or frozen through traumatic experiences of varying intensity. You can end up with one person who remains in contact with this part of themselves, who is the life of the party, creative, and playful, and another who loses contact with it who becomes riged, fearful and controlling.
As adults we CAN reconnect to the part of us that is intuitive, playful and emotionally sensitive. As we do so, we tend to start to feel more alive, more connected to a sense of joy for no reason. We feel less scared, because we know what the inner child needs in every moment and how to take care of
A deep sense of self trust starts to develop. It feels grounded, safe and supportive.
Learning to re-parent is a process. We need to build trust with our inner child, be reliable and take care of them / ourselves. I have personally found the process to be life changing.
You might feel a little scared of opening a pandoras box, of what you might find when you meet your inner child. If you would like to be supported through that process, head to the link in my bio and book a one-on-one session with me.
Much love to all your inner children
