I have now come to realize that there is a lot to be said for touching base with our “Inner Child”, observations, experience, reading and getting a sense of where dysfunction stems from, in truth aren’t we all a little dysfunctional at some point in our lives.
You see there is a lot to be said for what we as individuals who are supposedly grown, what we bring to the table with another. Parent’s make mistakes and they too have to be held accountable for those mistakes, but consider for a moment the spiritual perspective on understanding things from a deeper aspect? if we take into consideration what we experienced with our own Parents and what insecurities, fears, worries, anxieties they brought into the fore in the upbringing phase of raising their offspring, sometimes it gives a clearer perspective of the deeper implications of dysfunction.
In no shape, nor form should any time of abuse be condoned, but lets address dealing with our past for a moment, our past cannot be erased, it cannot be undone, so where does one find a place of inner healing? I believe that it starts with our “Inner Child” in society we are supposed to be adults when we reach a certain level of maturity, age, but in truth there are wounded adults who are still displaying some childlike tendencies, through I believe getting stuck emotionally in a particular cycle and phase of their development. I believe that working with healing the “Inner Child” is the way forward of allowing yourself to touch base with your “Inner Child”, allow it to express itself safely, freely, without critic, using words such as “I forgive you”, “I am sorry”, “I hear you”, “Thank you”, it may sound strange, but where have you given yourself permission to acknowledge the scared little child within you that had to grow up, due to experiencing abuse or neglect.
The soul work pertaining to this can be painful, can be challenging, can be difficult and is difficult, the key is to identify what abuse took place, to allow yourself to go through the journey of feeling it, addressing it, exploring your feelings, it will need a supportive non-judgmental hand to guide you, and it also takes courage.
