As I understand it, the inner child is you, between the ages of 6-8 years old. That inner child carries the knowledge of love for you. If you were given conditional love at a young age (meaning love could be given or taken away) which is the complete opposite of unconditional love which is what we all strive for, then the inner child holds that belief.
I recently had a healing experience in which my inner child has been reminded that we seek unconditional love, but that we also understand conditional love and the why’s and how’s by which others may only be able to love conditionally. It was a startling revelation for me and for my inner child which I found so healing.
When given the opportunity to voice herself, the inner child has much to say and when all parts of us can work together, we can heal. It is amazing to me how one session of hypnotherapy – parts therapy – worked wonders in my life.
Have you ever tried hypnotherapy? I found the experience to be a wonderful tool to help me heal. It made such a positive difference in my life. I just want to thank Bobbi Rise for her patience, knowledge and professionalism. If you’re interested in a session, you can find her here! Give her a call and see how your life can transform and heal!
I’ve mentioned many times over the last few days that there is help at school for parents and for students. A friend of mine wrote a book that I want to share since I unexpectedly began a series on the beginning of school for teachers, parents and students.
Because I always want to help, here’s my tip for you! This book is a keeper and I’m not just saying that! If you have Middle-schoolers, this is a great book for you!
From tears and fears to cheers—the adult guide for middle-schoolers… Twenty of the most common issues that drive emotional middle-school students to the school counselor’s door are told in story form based on real-life confidential meetings, phone calls, and interventions. Stories include practical life lessons and inspiring solutions for such problems as anger management, eating disorders, peer pressure, bullying, divorcing parents, failure spirals, broken friendships, gossip, sexual harassment, and test and performance anxiety. The stories also provide insight for challenges with parents, teachers, or siblings, and they help students deal with being new at school, death and major change in the family, and friends who are desperate or hurting themselves. Each of the chapters details the process of taking these educationally disruptive issues from emergence to resolution in a format perfect for use by school counselors, teachers, and parents. Additionally, each chapter offers discussion and reflection questions at the end to help promote insight through discussions with individuals, groups, or in classrooms. This full range of school counselor programs, professional resources, and responsibilities is the perfect read for the school counselor wanting new tools and strategies, or for the graduate student wanting an understanding and guide for the career they have chosen. And for the parent or teacher, this book will help them support the social and emotional growth of their middle-school children with an understanding of their emotional needs.
