Inner child healing is a way to address your needs that haven't been met as a child and allow you to heal the attachment wounds you've developed.

We all have a younger part of ourselves that was "never quite loved the right way or the way we needed as a child."

Inner child healing involves creating a space where our subconscious is allowed to take the lead. Inner work is the act of going inside ourselves, to explore our true feelings and parts of us that may have been rejected and labelled as "inappropriate" or "too much" by others.

When you allow yourself time to go within, you begin peeling back your everyday coping mechanisms (being avoidant, numbing of your feelings, etc.) and are able to fully accept and integrate your subconscious into consciousness.

By healing your inner child, you begin to create the safety and security your younger self always needed. By doing so, the positive traits of your inner child has room to shine. You unlock your natural gifts, your inner curiosity, and your limitless capacity to love.

On the other hand, when you avoid addressing your past hurts and feel alone with them, they transform into behaviours destructive to yourself and your environment, such as workaholism, alcoholism, and/or other addictions.

What does "inner child" really mean?

Our inner child is a representation of ourselves at multiple points in our childhood, and we can have inner children from various ages. This part of us is very much connected to our natural enthusiasm, curiosity, and creativity we experienced as actual children.

Why is inner child healing important?

As adults, we walk around carrying wounds from our childhood, whether it's simple or complex trauma, from emotional neglect to physical abuse. Many adults feel they're alone with these hurts and feelings, and so they cover them up because they feel like that's "what other grown-ups do."

That's why inner child healing is so important, to remind yourself that you're not wrong or bad. To heal the shame that comes with just having feelings.

 

Signs your inner child needs healing.

1. Feeling highly reactive.

We can notice when our wounded inner child appears in our daily lives when you find yourself highly reactive to situations, suddenly feeling very detached or irritated. Our adult self is trying to manage or control the outside that's making them feel uncomfortable on the inside.

2. Overvaluing independence.

This can look like repeating the narrative "I don't need anyone" and not allowing yourself to ask for any help.

3. Destructive coping behaviours

This can look like coping through too much alcohol, shopping, cheating, gambling, food, and even chronic procrastination.

4. Poor emotional and mental health.

This can show up in a multitude of ways, including:

  • Depression
  • Feeling unmotivated
  • Wanting more and more time alone or with friends (avoidance manifesting in different ways)
  • Not wanting to have sex or wanting more sex to keep partner connected
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Increased anxiety in different areas of life

This can look like coping through too much alcohol, shopping, cheating, gambling, food, and even chronic procrastination.

5. Repeating patterns in your relationships

People with attachment wounds tend to unconsciously recreate attachment patterns they experienced as a child in their adult relationships, whether romantic or not. This means they're essentially repeating patterns of childhood trauma.

So what can an attachment pattern look like?
  • Being avoidant during conflict or when a partner brings up their feelings
  • Being dismissive of a partner's needs or your own needs in the relationship
  • Gaslighting (self-deceiving) yourself into believing that there aren't problems when there are, or vice versa
  • Being anxious or fearful within the relationship; therefore, trying to please partner above all else
  • Having a deep fear of being abandoned or rejected by your partner
