Healing the child within requires becoming in tune with this child and looking as deeply inside of yourself as possible. We must listen and speak with compassion. Listen to the wounded child within your soul and find out what it is he or she needs. If you meditate on this child each day for a good 20-30 minutes you will be able to change your life.
You see, we suffer because we have not yet been able to ease the mind of this child who has already gone through far too much. We need to become mindful and understanding of ourselves. Your inner child needs to hear you say that you love him or her and you hear them.
Make sure to tell your inner child that he or she did not deserve the life that was forced on them. Apologize even though it is not your fault. Forgive those who wronged you as an adult and as a child. Thank your inner child and praise him or her for doing all that could be done.
