Welcome back to Module Two: Embracing Your Inner Child!
Thank you for joining me again, I’m so glad you’re here and that you’ve ready to continue to Unleashing Your Wildly Creative Self.
In the last module, Facing Your Fears, we deeply examined emotions, thoughts, behaviours and core beliefs around creativity. Today, we’re going to embrace our Inner Child. Carl Jung, founder of Analytical Psychology, was the originator of this work. For those who haven’t done any inner child work, it is the childlike aspect of your unconscious mind. It can where our unmet needs lie, childhood memories that are still affecting us, our natural spontaneity, play, enthusiasm and creativity.
Mateo Sol says “Inner child work is the process of contacting, understanding, embracing and healing your inner child. Your inner child represents your first original self that entered into this world; it contains your capacity to experience wonder, joy, innocence, sensitivity and playfulness.” I would add creativity to this definition.
Inner child work is a huge step to unleashing Creativity. This module is especially beneficial for those who: • Feel like there is something wrong with themselves, at their deepest core • Feel inadequate or insecure on a regular basis • Have a strong inner critic, a perfectionist, or someone who likes to control their environment and themselves. • Define themselves as a People Pleaser or love too much. They are the emotional provider in most relationships. They keep the relationship going and expend a lot of effort to keep the relationship afloat. • Hold Grudges and have a hard time letting go and forgiving • Experience anxiety when not in your comfort zone • And they also might have deep abandonment, mistrust, and emotional deprivation issues.
Most people find nurturing the Inner Child gives them a renewed sense of vitality, a boost of confidence and a deep feeling of reconnection with themselves.
Does that sound like something you need right now? Are you willing to have an inner adventure?
Today’s module is one longer guided meditation (approx 35 minutes) and a few cognitive practices to embed the guided meditation experience. So like last week, you’ll need three things: 1) A room of your own 2) Stationery – pens, pencils and papers 3) To be free from distractions.
