Deep Healing: Nurturing Your Inner Child
Healing your inner child might seem like a journey with many ups and downs. It’s like carrying a backpack full of past experiences that sometimes weigh you down. But, as Bentinho often shares, it’s crucial to acknowledge and heal this part of ourselves while also not becoming overly fixated on it.
Imagine your inner child as a small version of yourself, needing attention and care. Sometimes, this child feels hurt because of things that happened long ago, perhaps not being listened to or feeling unloved. These experiences, especially when they occur at a young age, can deeply affect us. We store these memories for a time when we’re ready to face and heal them.
The key to healing is acknowledgment. Recognize the experiences and feelings of your inner child. It’s like saying, “I see you, I hear you, and your feelings are valid.” This is the first step towards healing any wound.
Bentinho explains that healing involves a blend of self-love and sometimes a bit of tough love. It’s about finding balance. Remember, being gentle with yourself is important, but so is moving forward.
Here’s a thought that resonates with this journey: “Healing is not just about remembering and acknowledging. It’s also about allowing yourself to grow beyond past pains, embracing the present with love and acceptance.”
A fitting spiritual reference for this journey of healing comes from the Bible, Psalm 147:3, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” This verse beautifully encapsulates the essence of inner healing and the power of nurturing the wounded parts of ourselves.
When we talk about chakras, the energy centers in our body, each experience we face passes through these chakras. Our journey of healing and self-love starts from the lower chakras – dealing with survival, identity, and relationships – and moves upwards towards love and higher consciousness.
Embracing self-love is vital. It’s not just about loving yourself but also about expanding that love to everything around you. Self-love is the gateway to universal love, as Bentinho suggests.
Remember, deep healing is a journey, not a destination. It’s about continuously acknowledging, loving, and growing beyond your past. It’s a process of transforming pain into power, wounds into wisdom.
