Inner Child – Ego State Therapy
“We nurture our creativity when we release our inner child. Let it run and roam free. It will take you on a brighter journey.” ~ Serina Hartwell
Chances are, you have several roles in your life. Maybe you are a mother, sister, son, doctor, friend, spouse, teacher, etc. Just as common is the fact that we all have experiences that make us feel overwhelmed at times. We struggle to make sense of the events or encounters. This can result in our getting stuck. The emotions and beliefs generated by the experience become a part of a filter. This filter influences how we navigate life. It is called an ego state. Long after the original experience, we may find ourselves in a situation that reminds us of this experience. We may react as though we are still stuck. We can’t access the wisdom, maturity and balance we demonstrate in other parts of our lives.
Influence of the Subconcious
All of us are like Russian nesting dolls with various ego states. Younger parts of ourselves influence how we see and experience the world. Dr. Bruce Lipton described how our subconscious is more powerful than our conscious mind. Our subconscious is responsible for 95% of our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Most stuck emotions and nonproductive beliefs are in our subconscious mind.
Childhood Affects Adulthood
As children, when things went wrong, many of us believed something was wrong with us. Early on, we learned a list of what we were “not enough of.” Oftentimes, our adult actions are a reflection of our inner child.
