What is inner child healing and why do you need it?
Inner child work is the process of contacting, understanding, embracing and healing your inner child... or your subconscious mind.
As children, we were very much influenced by the environment and the people around us. We will have made decisions at a subconscious level, about how we should be and what we should do in order to be seen as OK, and to be allowed to stay around and to survive in our families, in our peer group, isn't it?
Our later experiences will have reinforced these beliefs and formed our own blueprint/ scripts for how our life should be. We carry these immature scripts and decisions with us into adulthood when they run our lives more than 90% of the time. Most of the time we are living life like a child inside a grown-up's body - and the child within us yearns for attention, validation, understanding, care and support.
We may very frequently try to silence these deeper longings with alcohol or drugs, by being totally absorbed in smart devices and the internet, by promiscuity, gambling, over-spending, over-eating, work-a-holism, self-harming and other ways of avoiding the real and deeper needs we have. Needs which we haven't allowed ourselves to become fully aware of, or to find a way to have sufficiently met.
Pay close attention to these signs. They will help you learn the general extent to which your inner child has been wounded and the level to which you feel unsafe in this world.
Below is a quiz. Please answer a "yes" or "no" to each depending on what you resonate to.

If you answered yes to five or more of these statements, you should seriously consider reconnecting with your inner child.
