In this week’s blog, I open up about my journey to heal my inner-child and share 6 signs that you are connected with your inner child.
It took me YEARS to come to the realization that the root cause of many of my self-sabotaging patterns were stemming from a wounded inner child.
We are in an egocentric state from 0-14, absorbing our environment into our subconscious mind. We operate our day-to-day thoughts, attitudes, reactions, and beliefs from our subconscious state 95% of the time.
Because of this, we feel that we are “stuck” in specific habitual loops no matter how bad we want to grow past this.
We use Conscious, Circular connected breath to bypass the conscious mind, and access the subconscious and limbic brain where we are storing negative imprinting and messages from our childhood that we likely picked up from our own parents.
On my first ever breathwork journey, I was shown memories of my 2-year-old self scared and powerless while my parents were fighting. I had no idea that I was still holding onto these wounds within my subconscious mind. After breathing this way for years now, I have gone back to several memories of me as a child and was able to reparent that inner-child and give them exactly what they needed at that moment to feel safe, supported, and loved.
Here are 6 signs of an empowered inner child:
- Room for fun and incorporating play in your daily/weekly life
- Radical self-love and acceptance
- Daily self-care, however that looks for you!
- Strong boundaries and understanding of needs
- You make an effort to be seen and heard
- Living in non-judgment
If you need support in connecting to your inner child, I invite you to incorporate breath work into your wellness practice. Self-discovery is right around the corner.
