We explore the feelings of our inner child and show some loving care towards it ourself. What thoughts and/or what beliefs about ourself cause us painful feelings? Learning to react in a loving way to ourself is a new way of dealing with our feelings.
Really wanting to listen and learn from our feelings is the first step. It is the intent to learn instead of to control. There are quite a few things that can help bring us in a good mood and inspire us to have this dialogue within ourself.
- We can use our imagination. Take the risk to trust what we think we are 'making up' about what and why we feel. - Pray for help and guidance. - Chant mantras or just singing helps to 'loosen up'. - Dancing is also a good activator. Try drumming dance or drumming itself. - Be in nature. A river, lake, ocean, desert or a mountain, all add to a more open attitude. - Listen to classical or spiritual music. Bach, Vivaldi, Handel or Mozart. Kitaro, Taize, Gregorian and Indian chants. - Be creative with art is big stimulator and inspirer. - Us incense or fragrances to relax.
All this is meant to change our energy. To bring us in a mood conducive to self-dialogue between the loving adult we become/are and our core/wounded self. Remember, the inner child is the feeling aspect of ourself and expresses both wounded and core self feelings.
PS: Not the next text but the following after that will give an example of such an inner dialogue.
