When you were a child, you may have had moments of pure joy. Laughter, joy, and freedom are the birthrights of who we are, but many reasonable people lose these as they mature into 'responsible' adults. What if we could be responsible to the younger selves within who are awaiting our nurturing attention? The full integration of all aspects of ourselves leads to the deepest kind of lasting peace.
Sadly, there are some that may not have known a lot of joy and laughter as a child. This kind of painful contrast in life is the foundation for an ecstatically happy existence when joy and laughter are then finally restored. There is absolutely a corresponding relationship between how low you have gone in your past and how high you will go in your healing.
This 'inner child' work is not at all about dredging up the past. It is actually about freeing the past's limitations on your present life so that your future Self may be fully liberated. You are here to be happy.
