We have been talking about inner healing work and have started looking at immature parts of self that require our attention. Our first task must be to become aware of these parts through observation of ourselves.
Next it is required that we not act from them. Another way to say this is do not become them or indulge in them. It is good to think of them not only as child fragments but also as energetic signatures or centres of gravity which will attract “like” energetic signatures. So we do not want to push them away or ignore them as that makes them push harder at us for attention, they get louder and bigger within and we will experience the reflection in our outer world.
Parenting Child Fragments
As adults we want to treat children well and lovingly. In a sense we need to be good parents to our inner children in the process of healing and maturing them. Once you are aware of a fragment begin to get to know this part of self. Interact with the child from your adult self by allowing him to express to you what he’s thinking and feeling. Do not become the child or judge the child.
Just listen and when you know what he needs meet that need. What did this child part of you not receive? We’ll talk next about unmet needs.
