Affirmations for the Inner Child welcomes you. It is a very effective way of healing the inner child.
It is said that every grown up person has a child hidden inside him/her. In our day to day activities we behave as adults because we are adults and have to behave like ones. However, the childhood that we lived and experienced still lies inside us in the form of memories. For some of us, these memories are sweet, for some they are not so sweet.
Depending upon how we have spent our childhood, the child inside us may be happy, sad, adventurous, timid, brave, frightened, extrovert or introvert. It has been observed that our adult behaviour many times is a reflection of our inner child. If you wish to change your adult behaviour, then affirmations for the inner child can help you.
The inner child is often described as the artistic, creative, imaginative and dreamer part of us. It is the fun loving, playful, wonder seeking entity that resides within us.
Why does the inner child still reside inside us even after we have grown up? Why does it still need attention? There could be many reasons. Some of us had to grow up very fast and the child in us never got enough time to cope up. In some cases the small child had to play the roles of ‘mom’ and ‘dad’. It never did get to be the child that it really was. Some children were abused. Their hurt was never healed. So many reasons are possible.
If the inner child is not healed properly, we have to face some negative consequences. We start taking life too seriously. Play, fun and laughter become alien to us. We may even find it difficult to enjoy with our own children. Life becomes a chore. Sometimes a person who was abused in childhood takes out his frustrations on other children and may himself become an abuser. So, healing the inner child is important. Affirmations for the inner child helps in that.
