Oh my, what a loaded question..
Most will live their entire lives without doing this,
sad to say..
To know why is important and will give you the ability
to contemplate resolving this in yours.
The main reason you want to heal the inner
child is because of how you directly see yourself.
This is about you, and as a child you may have been told things,
by your Parents in their deepest fear driven state which hurt you, making you doubt yourself..
I want to make clear that yes, this is You & your Parents..
If you are a Parent you will be the first to admit to your friends
that raising a child is Hard and many believe there are No Handbooks to teach you how..
I must beg to differ.. Sorry..
Mind you, I say this being raised by dysfunctional Parents
trapped in their own chaos, yet All along I knew what was needed,
missing and wanted. I would probably have been considered by most Parents back then as Difficult, because I could see through the facade of Age
(I know what is best) and actual Knowledge (Parental Love)
The actual Hand Book was given to us within our Hearts!
When you Love your child Unconditionally, and show Support to Who they are,
not Who You want them To Be, that is when you are Following the Universal Parents Guide!
Then and only then are you being a Parent..
When you choose to be a Guide for another Soul, you Choose to be a Parent.
This is a Privilege, and if you were like some who are only given the choice to Adopt, you would understand this!
You take on the Role of reflection, Guidance and Compassion, setting your needs aside for the needs of another.
Many beings are So absorbed in their needs and only see their children as a meal ticket to success, that they forget their Vow to being a Parent..
By doing that they Damage Children causing them to grow into Adults who are Lost, in Pain and sadly Angry,
because what was Promised to them when they were born was never Delivered.
From here I wish for you to look back at your Life and Remove that very first rejection,
with the knowledge given to you now,
that You can Give Yourself what your Parents failed to Honor, and know that Someone failed them too.
Heal you, because you Can!!
