The first 6 minutes are talking about how appreciation and gratitude shifts your perspective to pull you out from the nitty-gritty of daily life, heavy emotions, resentment or comparison and elevate your energy to a higher vibration so you can align with what you want to attract and desire in your life.

One of the topics I teach in my Soul School online course is about connecting to your inner child. Inner child bonding is so healing and very sweet.

 

The way we would talk to a child is so much different than we talk to our adult self. We’re harsh, judgmental and critical, but you would never be like that to a sweet young child.

 

If you’re new to inner child connection, there is a sweet, pure, innocent and good child within you still.

 

Connecting to your inner child immediately brings up a gentleness towards yourself.

We all could use more gentleness towards ourselves.

 

As Adults, we can be pretty hard on ourselves. We tent to hold on to heavy emotions - judgment, resentment, second-guessing, guilt and shame.

 

It’s like paying interest on a debt you don’t owe. You don’t have to hold on to these emotions. You can let go and be free.

 

By connecting to the sweet little girl or boy in you, it’s easier to be kinder and softer to yourself.

 

I have a timer on my phone where each day I connect with little Audrey. It doesn’t have to be long or weird.

 

I close my eyes and check in with her to see how she’s doing and what she needs. It usually takes less than a minute.

 

What’s interesting about inner child bonding is that the answers from her are often different than the answers from my Adult mind.

 

When my mind says I need to push harder and do more, my inner child says please rest and play.

When my mind says you’re not enough, my inner child says I see you and you’re loved.

When my mind dwells on a past mistake, my inner child shrugs it off and says You learned something, keep going.

 

Lately, I’ve also been adding self-forgiveness to my journaling and inner child meditations. This allows space for more self-compassion and celebration, and opens the door to give yourself permission to be kinder and gentler with yourself and the process of life’s disappointments.

 

Sometime self-love can be seen as weak, lazy or indulgent. Give yourself permission to take care and nurture yourself. You are important.

 

Creating a practice of self-forgiveness is one way you can begin to deepen your compassion towards yourself and expand your self-love.

 

Just like you would be quick to forgive a child, we need that same empathy as adults.

 

Your inner child just wants you to see them, to generously listen to them and to be gentle and kind to yourself.

 

Share on the blog or on insta: What are you forgiving and releasing?
