Healing the Inner Child: Part 2

In this episode we are continuing our exploration of how to heal the inner child and move forward with our lives in a place of more serenity and self-acceptance. In the first part of this series we discussed different ways we may manifest unresolved childhood issues or traumas, here we present different techniques and resources to begin this work and take back your life.

Through sharing what we have read and experienced, we hope this can help you see more clearly some aspects of your life that may need to be released. If you feel you need help or direction to work through this inner child work, please reach out to a licensed professional.

Healing the Inner Child: Part 1

In the first of this two part series, Samantha and Denise discuss ways to identify and acknowledge if you may benefit from working with your inner child. This is a heavy topic and we are not discussing this from a therapeutic standpoint but as empaths and sensitives who may be holding residual pain and energies from earlier times in our lives.

Inner child work is a way to address our needs that haven’t been met as children and heal the attachment wounds we’ve developed.  Our inner child is a representation of ourselves at multiple points in our childhood, including our natural enthusiasm and curiosity we experienced as children.

Can You Really Love Unconditionally?

Do you feel you have to adhere to certain standards in order to be loved? Are your relationships based on reciprocity and acceptance or do they fluctuate depending on mood and circumstances? Conditional love, given or received, is contingent on expectations that often can feel confusing and frustrating due to mixed messages. Unconditional love, given or received, is based on respect, trust and true acceptance.

Please join us as we explore some key components of conditional and unconditional love, plus ways you can focus on your own self love so you can attract the love and respect you deserve!
