Connecting With Your Inner Child

by | Oct 20, 2023

The Inner Child is a symbolic representation of the childlike aspects of one’s psyche. The concept is often used to help personal growth in the healing process from unresolved past experiences or trauma.

Fostering a deeper understanding of yourself, emotional resilience and wellbeing, this self-discovery tool can help explore and integrate emotions, memories, and experiences from childhood, both positive and negative.

Sometimes offered as a meditative practice alongside therapy, it involves connecting with, nurturing, and integrating the inner child aspects of self. Usually it involves elements of:

  • Relaxation
  • Visualization
  • Communication
  • Compassion

How often should I practice?

The frequency of practicing this meditation varies from person to person. Some may choose to incorporate it into their daily routine, while others might engage in it periodically, such as weekly or monthly, or on occasion. 

The choice of frequency depends on personal preferences, the specific goals of the practice, and how it fits into your overall approach to well-being. It is essential to listen to your own needs and find a pace that feels comfortable for you.

If you have specific concerns or issues you are working through, it’s always a good idea to approach such practices with an open mind and consult with a mental health professional.
