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.
